This local skin care is just as good as a K-beauty product!

And so I’ve often heard, that once we’ve experienced K-beauty, we will never turn our backs. I, myself, am guilty of being a K-beauty addict as most of the products that I smother my face with are Korean. Although there are a few local brands that I love and am loyal with, my heart beats for K-beauty.

Now what makes K-beauty special? Why are we so in love with them? Does it have anything to do with our K-pop or drama idols? Although that may be the case, I can say that the main reason we get so into them is that they are gentle, mostly made with natural ingredients, and they deliver!

As a late bloomer in all this beauty shebang, I had lost all hope in improving my skin. I’ve tried rejuv sets, facial treatments, and a lot of commercialized products. I kept jumping from one product to another because none of them did any good on my skin. Even some acne gels that promised to get rid of acne the next day only made it worse!

1 out of 34 things I wish I could do while I’m 34 ☑ | HUENICORN (Siren Hair PH)

The day before my birthday, I wrote down thirty-four things I hoped I could do before turning thirty-five. I used to write resolutions or bucket lists, but I had decided to quit as I constantly failed to accomplish them all. But realizing that I do not have plenty of time left, I knew I had to finally set goals for myself. Goals that I can and I will achieve.

What I’ve written are very simple things that I wish to experience [again] and learn. Nothing too far-fetched or impossible.

January 26th marks the day I slashed one of the 34 things. I finally dyed my hair green and purple! It isn’t really out of ordinary, though, since I still have to keep my roots dark because of my work.
