Today’s post is all about confidence….especially about being confident in your own skin. For the past few months, I’ve struggled on and off with acne. I have good and bad days with it, but I usually tended to just hide it under layers of make up. This, however, tends to make it worse. So I decided a few weeks ago to give my skin a break and do a week in university make up free. It scared the hell out of me. Areas of my skin were bright red and bumpy. It looked horrendous….
as you can see….. but I braved it and went make up free. I enjoyed the extra time in the morning, because let’s be honest make up isn’t the quickest process….but I still missed my mask. I didn’t feel confident and found myself kind of ducking my head down and hiding my skin, so in the end I caved and wore make up. This has been a constant circle…a week with make up, a week without….and this has done my skin no favours. But I’ve been thinking….why should I care?! I should feel confident and beautiful with or without make up. My amazing boyfriend always tells me how gorgeous I look without it…and with, so ahouldnt I listen to him and feel confident anyway? The answer is yes. yes I should take Ryan’s advice and embrace my natural beauty. I am beautiful with or without make up. We all are. So whether you wear it or not, feel confident in yourself. Be happy in your own skin.
