Thanks to the holiday break, I finally had the time to take a really good and long look at myself in the mirror with a pen and paper in hand. I realized I’ve been reviewing numerous products since my blog started yet I had been missing out one of the most important details to share to my readers who take my product reviews seriously— what exactly am I made of aside from a lego work of organs, skin and bones? So behold my list of pimples, wrinkles, stray hair and whatnot!
Combination skin that’s prone to dullness.
My skin is prone to dehydration and moisture loss. I don’t get pimples often — at least not anymore — but I used to get Queen Bee-sized seasonal pimples on my nose that had left me with bumpy scars. Once in a while, I get a bout of acne on my forehead and my temples. My biggest problem now would probably be volume loss and my uneven skin tone that’s prone to sullenness and pigmentations. I also have genetic dark eye circles and extremely thin skin around my eyes. My upper eyelids suffer from seasonal eczema that’s triggered by certain products and stress.
Oily, sensitive scalp and dry hair.
I’ve got naturally wavy yet fine hair that’s prone to breakage. But that’s not my biggest problem… It’s always been a challenge for me to find a suitable shampoo that will not irritate my scalp yet will clean it thoroughly and keep it smelling fresh. I’ve tried TOO many shampoo brands from A-Z, the “no poo” method, ACV rinse and all the natural hair tips I’ve read online but none has worked 100% for me yet. I get dandruff from almost anything and I sometimes shed as much hair as my cat sheds fur.
Dry skin, eczema and chicken skin bumps.
The skin on my body is prone to dryness, too. In fact, I sometimes joke about being a half-mer due to the scale patterns on my lower legs. I suffer from seasonal eczema patches on my legs and my arms triggered by stress and bad diet. I also have Keratosis Pilaris or chicken skin. I often get dry, itchy bumps on the back of my arm but I’ve learned to manage the situation somehow.
Health & Weight
I’ve been judged too many times due to my low body weight but really, my skinny-ness is not by choice. After fruitless years of trying to gain weight through ‘extreme’ methods, my goal now is just to be healthy with the weight I have. I am considerably at least 10x healthier than I was about 5 years ago although aesthetically, I still look like I need a free sandwich. My resistance is much higher and my stamina has improved heaps. However, I’m still prone to fatigue sometimes and I require lots of sleep…. That or I’m just lazy.
Do we have the same or totally different beauty and health concerns?
For easier reference, I’m permanently placing this beauty and health profile under my About Me section. I’ll update the page whenever there are drastic changes in my profile. Say, for example, I suddenly woke up with bigger front bumpers.
