So lately I have been having good skin for weeks. Some people at work actually complimented it :D Okay pleaseee jangan ingat aku perasan ke bajet cantik ke, having good skin doesn't exactly mean that you're pretty.
Aku rasa happy sebab my actual hard work for the previous few months are really showing. Kinda like the way you feel happy bila dapat A+ for exam lepas kau study gila-gila lol.
Some of the compliments I've been getting:
'Kau nampak putih gile'
'Muka nampak glowing'
'Your face is so smooth, I don't think you even have whiteheads or blackheads or stuff'
Yeayyy me finally. Hahaha! :D
Anyway my skin is far from perfect, aku tahu sebab aku yang tengok muka aku hari-hari. But I don't have to battle with jerawat, bekas jerawat, kulit kusam sunburn, dan sebagainya macam dulu. And for that I'm very grateful.
Before this I've never been complimented on my skin, sebab aku memang tak kisah pasal rupa aku. Sejak dulu aku berazam tak nak jadi vain, sebab tu I almost never post selfies even until now. Up until a few months ago, I don't even wear moisturiser or powder to work. Now I have a morning and night routine, tapi tu pun aku skip kalau penat/stressed sangat.
Well, aku takde gambar terbaru nak share (I really don't do selfies), so I'll share some of my old, ugly pics. Sebab aku confident enough that I no longer look like that, I can post them. Hehehe.
Heads up, ugly pictures coming.
|2008/2009, masa kat matriks. Masa ni major skin issues. Dan bambam sebab banyak makan.|
|Still matriks. Maybe it's the water or my hormones, tapi muka meriah sangat dengan jerawat time ni.|
|2009/2010, first year uni. Not as bad but it still can be bad at times|
|Kena masukkan gambar ni because.. look at my cheek! Urghh|
Okay sebenarnya gambar kat atas ni tak nampak teruk sangat sebab aku tak suka ambik gambar diri sendiri dulu. Ye laa masa tu selekeh, tak cantik, dan sedar diri.
Sekarang pun still selekeh when compared to other people, but at least I have one thing going for me - that my acne finally clears up when I hit my 20s. And I finally decided to take care of my skin at 26 because.. hey, I'm not getting any younger.
|So I look like this now.|
Masih selekeh, masih tak fashionable like your girlfriend. But happier, more confident in my own skin, and I don't mean that just literally, but figuratively as well.
To those fighting skin issues, harap bersabar. I realized ramai lagi ada masalah jerawat, parut, dan sebagainya, but the world is not going to end because of that. And pleaseee don't try to get perfect skin sebab nak dapatkan boyfriend/hasben. Seriously your skin and your face might get you boys but that's not the reason they'll stay.
To be honest, masa aku hodoh dulu aku ada lagi ramai boyfriends daripada sekarang lol. Sekarang takde, sekian.
Final words: tinggalkan laa produk krim kilo yang penuh merkuri, hydroquinone, tretinoin tu. Perfect skin means nothing kalau kesudahannya kesihatan jahanam. Learn how to take care of your skin the hard way, read a lot about it. Bukan semudah sapu krim je nak dapatkan kulit selicin selembut baby's bottom.
So be happy with the way you look, the way you are, and earn lotsa money so you can make yourself feel pretty. What is jerawat and parut if you have money for aesthetic services kannn hahahaha okbai.
