The trick is to age honestly and gracefully and make it look great, so that everyone looks forward to it.
There is something about good skin. It gives one the confidence to face practically everything, especially a good face.
I had fair skin growing up. Then we learned about adolescence in school, and how some girls may have pimples during adolescence. I kept hoping it would not be me. I then convinced myself using my mother’s skin. I mean, if she did not have pimples, how was I going to? The apple never falls far from the tree, right?
I got to high school with a whole load of pimples, especially on my forehead. It was not acne, just too many pimples. For those struggling with acne and or pimples, you know how you feel standing next to a girl with fair skin. It was not easy.
I somehow grew out of it and by the time I joined uni, I had quite a number of black spots. At one moment, I was practically saving so as to get makeup. You know, just so as to hide the many spots I had.
Then I met C. Watching him take a lot of water motivated me to do the same. At first, I was not so sure how I would do it. Moving from taking a glass or two to taking eight. It was something that seemed impossible. I literally had to be reminded to take water at different intervals. Within no time, I could not do without 2 liters of water in a day. My body got so used to it, and now I cannot imagine life without water.
The results? Tremendous. Often, I walk confidently without any makeup. Makeup for me is not even about hiding the spots, but about enhancing the beauty.
What works for me? Water, water and more water.
