Fresher, Longer: Taking Care of Your Favourite Clothes

In today’s disposable world we no longer expect clothes to last a lifetime. Many are designed to be worn a few times and then thrown away, as fashion is an ever changing animal. With the right care, however, you can make some of your favourite clothing last for years and still look stylish. These can include those jeans that are almost welded on, that much-loved t-shirt or ‘wear anywhere’ top. Here’s how to make it happen:

Get Glowing Skin – Without a Photo Filter!

Let’s get real here, ladies. Everyone takes a photo and we want to look good in each of those photos. If you are an instagram user, you could have even develop a habit on applying photo filter, FIRST, before even uploading the photo – for the very reason that it instantly fixes your skin condition most of the times and makes you awesomely beautiful. Some would even use a Camera 360 app to enhance the photo itself before uploading it just to have whiter, fairer good looking skin. The bottom line? No matter how much you deny it, a part of you will always want to look good. You would want to present yourself better in public for whatever reason may it be – whether for the sake of your own confidence, for publicity, or just to get attention.. there will always be a part of each of us who wants to look their best!

It has always been about skin care, about having that natural beauty within, skin maintenance that brings out the beauty within you with or without any makeup. I do believe makeup does wonders but I just know that sometimes, having no makeup yet to feel good in our own skin is the most awesome thing every girl would ever dream for. Since I was 13, I have focused on skin care like no one else until today. I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve figured the secret out!

Go Glow!

Used to be just plain soap, and water to cleanse the face. Simple as that, women before, did not need to spend extra money to spend on facials, pricking, exfoliating, toning, rejuvenating and more. Yet, they had flawless skin. No cover ups, no makeup, just natural beautiful skin.

What happened? In an era of heavy makeup, pollution, sleepless nights, stress, social drinking… having a beautiful skin nowadays is a luxury. Spending for it has become a necessity. Is it really worth it? For some, no, for others, yes! Having a beautiful skin is synonymous to having a higher level of self confidence. A higher level of self confidence means a better chance at making it good in this life.
