skincare series

As much as I love detailing my wardrobe and shopping online every free minute I have, I'm still obsessed with one thing even more than my clothes: my skin. It's been an up and down battle the last 11 years and my finally victorious control over my skin comes from consumingly-studied strategies, a thousand trials, and perhaps a little wisdom and confidence with age.  My ideal of physical beauty stems from not what pretty clothes I put on, not how much or how little makeup I wear, but from how my skin presents itself to you and the rest of the world. It's the foundation to being and feeling naturally beautiful. As a teenager, nice clothes never made me feel better and makeup made me feel worse. Try painting on a dirtied, mud-clumped canvas. Even with the striking talent of an artist, you'd still notice the blemishes being covered up, hidden. So throughout the life I have lived, finding the control over my skin was my obsessive passion.

Over the next week, I want to share with you my methods of transforming my skin to its best and current regimens in maintaining it.  I hope you'll enjoy :)

I always like to include a picture with my post, but I don't really know which except for this random. I call this, love&hate. haha enjoy.
