“At a time when it’s (almost) impossible for a woman to not think about her beauty routine, her appearance, the real one you see at 8 A.M in the mirror, I finally decide to reconsider mine. And sis, what a journey…
Between the masks, serums, creams (day AND night ones, it’s way more funny), eye patches, oh I forgot night masks, my ego and my bank account has been knocked down.
Beauty is not easy, its ask patience and failures. Damn… This is not what they said. Either in the magazine or on Instagram. I scroll from selfie to selfie and let me tell you : I don’t look like that when I wake up. I felt betrayed, like Mufasa on the border of the cliff (that’s my drama queen side speaking).
But I didn’t gave up. Drink 1,5L of water per day ? I’ll try. Stop drinking soda ? Deal. Less sugar ? Say no more. A tonic for my skin in the morning ? Okay ! And the magic works ! No I’m joking… no magic. Because I’m a lazy princess, I want results and I don’t want to wait. I want to wake up and see the face of Beauty itself. So I drink soda, my water bottle is never empty at the end of the day, and sugar is still one of my best friends.
And I finally understood the whole thing after 482717 try of differents beauty routines that didn’t worked : the pleasure. To do it because I want to , and not because I feel forced by social medias. Do it because I wan’t to take care of me, and not because I’d like to transform a part of me. Take all the time I need, to find the right products and my own way to use them. Rome wasn’t made in 1 day, as well as a selfie is never perfect at the first try.”
