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!


If you have been following my blog all these years, you would know that my term of beauty blogging is not about using makeup to enhance your features. 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!

We all know that the secret to have beautiful looking skin is taking care of your skin. Like duh. Pretty obvious.

Nowadays, just taking care of our skin seems so hard to do. A lot of cosmetics are being shown to us through media. Celebrities, models and fashion icon changes our perspective of what is real beauty, too. Thus, most women indulge themselves to applying makeup on a daily basis because of that just to look fabulous. Don’t get me wrong. I love makeup and I use it. I do believe it helps to enhance our features and hide our flaws most of the time – it’s great!

I just think one thing of too much isn’t as healthy as we may think it is as we have become dependent of those products that are actually filled mostly by chemicals.

No filter photo - months ago!

Photo of Myself – No filter – Months Ago!

Just try one day. One day of taking a photo, without any makeup on and take a photo of yourself, see if you’ll love it!

I think it was this year that I suddenly had no interest in makeup anymore. I don’t know. I would often go to work without applying anything on my face – except for a sunblock. Sometimes, I would just apply a BB Cream and I’m all set! Normally, I’m not satisfied with just those – I had to apply pressed powder and blush on and everything else. I would even spend a bit of time to contour and highlight my makeup from time to time.


I think it was months ago that I discovered a secret to have glowing skin. It’s true! You got to trust me on this, I have completely given up makeup because of it! Well, using the word completely might be an exaggeration but I was fine not using makeup even when I’m going out and that comes rarely for me! When I go out, I always want to look my best, thus, even when I feel lazy – I would still apply a bit of makeup even just a powder or BB Cream to cover up a flaw or two. But few months ago, after discovering this secret.. I would only wash face with water daily – nothing else. I would wake up – have a chat with my boyfriend through Skype and not to worry about what he’ll see in my face!

Just woke up photo - no filter!

Just woke up photo – no filter!

One day, I sent him a video clip of myself sweet talking him..

Guess what he said?
Did you apply makeup? You look wonderful and I love the video, too!

He said it was cute of me to even prepare for the video by putting makeup on. Honestly, I don’t know what to feel. To feel bad that I actually didn’t prepare for anything since I recorded myself once and didn’t even tried to check if there is anything to edit on it or to feel awesome because he actually thinks I had makeup on when I didn’t even put anything on my face at all!

So anyway – I won’t keep you guys waiting for too long.

No makeup - No filter  with eyelash extension - been a haggard day!

My Secret? The secret that I have found out to glowing skin? It’s actually very simple. I just added health supplements and vitamins to my body system, daily! Eating the right kind of food is good, too. I just think at at these time and age, it’s quite hard to focus ourselves with completely good and healthy food. Thus, during these times, adding some supplements to our daily regimen helps us stay healthy and look our best, too! I have focused myself to having Vitamin C and Collagen Health Supplements. My primary focus was actually for my health to be more energized, healthy, for my bones, cells and all that. I was quite surprised when I even saw the result on my skin – my hair, my nails and everything else. It did wonders as long as you are consistent with it! So the next time you see a health store, don’t take it lightly – shop for natural health supplements today and see how your overall health and skin blooms as you see the effect of it after few months of taking these supplements. Goodbye Photo Filter and Hello to the Natural Beauty of My Own Skin!

  47. Its evident how you really take care of your skin sis.
