My Skincare Routine

I started to build my skincare routine about two and a half years ago. My growing obsession with it made me realized how critical to keep our skin healthy.

My Self-love and Self-care Journey

“i wish i’d done this earlier.” this is the thought that ran through my mind when i began the journey of self-care and self-love. self-care and self-love are two different things. self-care is actions you undertake to cultivate and nourish yourself — physically, mentally, and emotionally. on the other hand, self-love is genuinely loving and embracing yourself for who and what you are. our lips may declare that we care and love ourselves, but i believe that self-love is truly demonstrated on how…
