Don’t you just love the sheer satisfaction of flicking through the thick, glossy pages of your new magazine and finding a little sample pack glued to the print of an advertisement…whether it’s a moisturiser, b.b. cream, foundation or perfume? I know I do! It feels so exciting to try new make-up! Especially when it’s all over the adverts on the TV and you feel your hopes drop at how expensive it is…how you can’t afford it…how others can…But when you find just that little pack of it, it brings so much joy, that when you rip open the plastic, smell the expensive richness of it, and use it…You lose hope at how quickly it’s all gone, and drop it in the bin.
We all wish we could afford all the new designer make-up, some of us can, some of us can’t. We all dream of trying out all those nourishing hair ointments at the hairdressers for more than some of us can even afford. We all dream of luxury spas and being able to just feel the ooze and caress of a pot of expensive moisturiser just touching our faces that have seen better skin results than any other cheapy bottle can give for a year. But sometimes we’ve just got to remember that make-up isn’t everything. Yeah, so what, she has the money to do that, to make her feel more perfect…to hide away all those imperfections just to make her face look good, but it’s not like I look awful by not doing so too! Just remember that a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water and exercise is all you need to see lasting and better skin results, as well as a more upbeat and happy lifestyle!
