Well, hey, there wonderful ladies and gents. My name is Betsey and first off, I want you to know that you are intelligent, strong and beautiful or handsome just the way you are! Sometimes its hard to see that for ourselves and I’m certainly no different.
I often get up in the morning and wonder what in the hell I am gonna do with this crazy mane of mine or dread the dreary, dull look of my skin. I have had many problems, especially, with my skin in the past. I wake up to find pimples, redness, puffiness, dryness and dark circles plaguing me and that’s just the face.
And, being entirely honest here, it often leaves me with depleted self-confidence. I am an already shy person, but when my body, especially the face, can’t live up to the beauty standards of today it makes me want to disappear into the background. Sometimes, even feeling like I am not good enough to do bigger and better things. I really felt this pressure in high school as so many of us do. It left me often afraid to do what I really wanted and to be myself. Instead, I stayed quiet in a corner and invisible to the world.
Okay, don’t get all teary eyed on me or anything. I know it sounds odd, but I am actually grateful for this time. I got to push myself out of my shell and become a stronger person for it. I am still more on the introverted side, but there is one massive difference; I believe that I am capable of doing whatever I set out to do no matter whether I think I am pretty or not… most days.
I did this by learning about beauty and how to manage it in a way that makes me feel more confident in myself. Trust me when I say I have TRIED. IT. ALL.
From expensive skin products to diy’s on pintrest. I even went to the doctor.
(He gave me a really expensive lotion product that sort of ate my skin off. It was kind of horrible… and gross.)
Anywho, back to the point here. I have had a lot of experience with skincare and I want to help hopefully make life just a little bit easier by sharing the knowledge I have accumulated.
Do what makes you feel confident, but know that you are beautiful or handsome no matter what!
