I have always been very safe when it comes to my makeup. I tend to choose very muted and safe colours, and more than often, I come across as under dressed than over dressed for special occasions. I have this worry of over dressing and looking like a clown somehow; strange, but very real in my irrational train of thoughts. Lately, however, I have decided to make little changes in my makeup kit. I have decided to be more adventurous and venture into colours I have never tried before.
I bought myself a pack of earplugs that are designed for sleeping over the weekends. And I have to say, my sleep have been restful indeed. I am quite a light sleeper and used to be really sensitive to the sounds around me when I’m asleep. Because my work hours are not the typical 9-5, I sometimes wake up at 9 or even 10am if I have nothing on early in the day. But as the rest of the world bustles from as early as 7am, I find myself waking up to noisy neighbors or random sounds from outside on most mornings. Needless to say, this usually render my mornings not so pleasant and grumpy. And so, I have decided to try using ear plugs instead of admitting defeat to the sounds around me in the mornings!
I was just looking into the mirror one morning and was trying to imagine how I’d look when I’m old. I figured the most obvious sign of aging would be showing of smile lines as they are in the central part of the face and is the most noticeable. Crow’s feet would be another most obvious sign but considering how most Asian ladies hardly get crow’s feet, I’d like to think that it’s not one of the main obvious signs of aging. After this fleeting thought, it then hit me that I laugh way too much at times and a sudden wave of paranoia came over me. Will I be able to prevent having smile lines as I get older, or is it an inevitable occurrence just waiting to happen as I smile my way into wrinkles?
I have often been told by sales assistants over and again that I need to use a moisturizer to ensure my skin is well hydrated and moist to prevent it from drying out and causing wrinkles. While I understand that it is important to keep our skin well hydrated, and that we do need a moisturizer, what I can’t make sense of is: can dry skin really cause wrinkles and premature aging? So I’ll like to tackle this question today.
