Skincare and makeup are different categories. In art terms, makeup is like covering your dirty canvas with layers of art strokes. Skincare is cleaning your dirty canvas and prolonging or bettering its original state.
Here’s my 4 steps in skincare routine to date:
Facial Cleanser (This is pretty obvious, and I’m going to skip this part as majority does it)
Toner (This step is my favourite as it cleanses dirt that you can miss with the first step plus hydrate your skin. A cleanser tends to dry out your skin, and this helps with moisture).
Serums (I’ve recently added Vitamin C serum into my regime – yet to see if this is effective. Otherwise, apply any creams that mends your skin issues, e.g. blackheads, acne etc.)
Moisturiser (Always an important step in skin maintenance and helps with anti-aging)
As for the +1 step, it depends on whether it’s morning or night.
You would want +1 to be sunscreen if it’s daytime. I personally prefer SPF 50 as it offers high protection from sun rays in my country.
If it’s nighttime, the +1 step would be my eye cream – for dark circles or puffy eyes.
Bonus: I did not mention this as I don’t do it daily even though it’s recommended, but sheet masks are a step that you can add to your routine. I apply this when I feel like my face needs extra moisture that day or to relax.
And there you go! This can be a skincare routine for anyone who wants something quicker or lacks time.
Before Cancel culture was a norm, television companies have been doing it. Which is a shame if you’re hooked into a series only to have it abruptly end.
Here’s a list of awesome TV series that got cancelled:
Into the Badlands This has been my favourite so far. No doubt haters always find something to complain about, but what I enjoy about this tv series is the world-building, culture and lore. It is rare to see an American tv series with martial arts, and I welcome this fresh and high-octane drama. Costumes that differentiate the allegiance with Barons and properties are also worth a mention. Setting: Post-apocalyptic martial arts series in dangerous feudal lands.
Firefly The adventures in different planets and civilizations leave you curious and wanting for more. Setting: Space, Western drama in the year 2517.
Dracula No introductions needed as it’s pretty obvious from the title. Horror drama. Setting: Victorian.
Now here’s a list of awesome TV series that should’ve been cancelled:
Game of Thrones We know this one. It was great until the last season. Cancelling out the last season would’ve saved this beloved piece than finishing it and leaving a bitter aftertaste with the horrendous last season.
How I met your Mother It was awesome, really. Funny until…it wasn’t. For the love of all things, quit dragging on how the MC met their mother when it should’ve ended a season or more ago.
Having said that, I’m not really a fan of the cancel culture. What’s the tv series that you wish were cancelled or wasn’t?
The first feeling of emotions, Erupted like the roar of lions, Either from your own or others, Absorbed like an unwanted sponge in tethers.
At the crossroads, there were two paths, A decision to make for the Empath, To go down the destructive mines, Or to wind back the birth line.
If you chose the destructive path, Insensitive and illogical minds incurred your wrath, You asked, “Why do I need to put up with others’ shit?” “Why do they throw their feelings into my peaceful pit?” You would eventually lose your powers, But you would have peace in your lonesome tower.
Otherwise, if you continued with your natural feelings, It might keep you reeling, You might never feel numb, In fact, you would continue feeling dumb, But you remained in the humane path of future and past, The question was, could you last?
There was never any black or white, It was either fight or flight, If you thought the choice was obvious, Congratulations on discovering your cockiness.
Have you ever asked yourself, If not now, then when? Why risk it when I can sit behind the majority of men? Breathe, they will judge you behind your back, See, judged by everything they lack, Speak, they will make a mockery of you, Live, you could be one of the few, Courage, if you want to create something new.
If this is stupidity, Then what about those who remain in their same positions day after day? If it will lead to a penalty, What is the difference if you let others determine how you fade away?
If you want progress, You need to take the first step out of this mess, Society will criticise anyway, So, why let others decide when you can determine your way?
Did some photo composition recently with three photos. Never watched any of those shows, thought the character looks cute. Original photo was taken years ago with my first DSLR camera. More available at www.ysfaye.com
This photo’s taken with Fujifilm XT-30 camera. The place advertised itself as resort but glamping is a more accurate term for it. There are fun outdoor activities but sleeping there was no fun. By the time I came home, my body’s bitten by sandflies. Sandfly bites are worse than mosquitoes. They’re itchy and can spread if you scratch. They also last longer than mosquito bites and can leave marks.
