|Using a generic picture because this post wasn't planned|
and it's quite dark here so my pictures aren't coming out well.
I eagerly started using my new scrub. And though it made my skin smooth,I wasn't seeing the results I was expecting. I get frequent emails from a skincare website that I'm subscribed to. A few weeks after getting the scrub, I got an email from them talking about exfoliation. According to the email, products containing glycolic acid and AHAs in general work better when left on the skin for longer periods of time. Which is why dermatologists advice you to get a serum or lotion instead of facial washes and scrubs as the latter don't stay so long on your face. I finally understood why I wasn't getting the miraculous results I was expecting. I'm pretty sure that if I had been calm, I wouldn't have bought the scrub so impulsively.

The same thing applies with our everyday lives. Sometimes we tend to rush through things. Be it making decisions, in our jobs, eating ( I'm guilty of this lol) and so on. But I've discovered that doing things calmly is the best. It's just like trying to use liquid liner when you're in a rush. It barely turns out good (unless you're a pro) right? But when you're calm and you take your time, chances are it'll turn out right. So this week, let's all strive to do things with a calm spirit. To take our time when doing things. It'll save us a lot of regret. As my mum always says,"What is chasing you?"
Back to the scrub itself. It's a nice scrub if you're looking for a regular exfoliator. It has a very lovely scent and the micro beads are very gentle on my skin. The glycolic acid concentration is too low though so if you're buying it because of that, I wouldn't recommend it.
Have a great week guys! xx
