A #BetterMe on my 29th with SkinWhite

We celebrated my birthday few days ago and every time, I see to it that I did not only age but also mature. I will be sharing with you the things I normally do to be a better version of myself inside and out. #betterme

First, of course, I pray. I admit, I don’t do it as often as what others would do but I pray. I thank God for the blessings, I ask for guidance and apologize for my sins. Every after prayer, I feel so revived. It is as if I have unloaded all the heavy baggage I’ve been carrying. Relationship with God is always a top priority to be a better person.

I devote most of my time with my family and boyfriend. We build strong connection by doing almost everything together such as travelling, watching movies, enjoying different cuisines, playing with our dogs and going to church. When I was younger, I don’t have much time for them. Then I realized the importance of being connected with my family. Now, I see to it that I am there for them no matter what the circumstance is. I also suggest having a pet. Dogs, for example, can teach you how to love unconditionally.

Just like the SkinWhite Captivate Council’s journey where they focused on self-improvement and having fun with friends, I also aim to enjoy life and improve my relationship with family and friends. I have disagreements with some of my friends before and recently, I started reconnecting with them.

Whenever I have time to browse the internet, I would look for quotes that will help me be positive amidst the trials I am facing. I feel so blessed afterwards so what I do is I share them on my Facebook wall so that others will feel blessed too. It is one way of giving back the encouragement I have been getting.

I have gained so much weight and I know it is not healthy anymore. So, just a month ago, my sister and I decided to go back to working out in a gym. Health is wealth so let’s not waste time. Eat healthy and exercise. Your body will thank you for doing so. Although I am still big, exercising made me feel a lot stronger.

Aside from working out, you can also improve your skincare routine to achieve better looking skin. SkinWhite has been in the market for quite a long time already and a lot of women rely on it. For the very basic part of skincare, cleanse and tone regularly. This Advanced Power Whitening Soap (Php26 for 65g, Php44.50 for 90g, Php60.75 for 125g) has a great scent that you will surely love! The Advanced Whitening Facial Cleanser (comes in 75ml and 135ml) is a revelation to me. It feels really good on the skin because it has cooling effect. These two products are you friends for a pimple-free and glowing face.

I don’t have a perfect skin to begin with. I can go out showcasing my bare face but a little makeup won’t hurt as it will help me be more confident. I have been using this Power Whitening Face Cream Powder and I like how it feels light on the face, like powder actually. It smells so good too! Whenever I am in a hurry, I would reach for this and spread it al over my face for instant brightening effect.

Here I have applied the face cream powder, defined my brows, applied blush and tinted lip balm. With few products, you can definitely look and feel good.

The uneven skin color does not end with my face. My body has uneven skin too. It is a work in progress. One of the things I do is apply a lotion that will help me achieve that even and glowing skin. This Advanced Power Whitening Lotion is what I have been using lately because I really like the noticeable instant whitening effect upon application. It feels very light and not sticky at all. This has SPF20 for that extra protection against UV rays that may cause further skin darkening.

See the instant whitening effect I am talking about? The arm on your left looks brighter and more even. That’s just one layer of SkinWhite Advanced Power Whitening Lotion.

So, basically, those are the things I do to gain more confidence and become a better person each day. Nothing complicated. I just do what most people do. It is just a matter of being consistent and improving day by day.

Just always remember to start from the inside and radiate that beauty on the outside.
