A few weeks ago I had a little scare. Now don’t get worried it’s not that serious. I took a skincare test by Olay a few weeks back and i decided to make healthier life choices. I am going to be 24 years in a month and a day ( yeah i am that young duhh, mark your calendar guys and get my presents ready *dancing*) and according to the test my skin is 35 years (yikes).

Now imagine my shock. If you have been following this blog lately you would know one of my goals for this year is to have healthier skin and this result just blew my mind. This showed that i was on the right track, i was given a list of products to use to get my skin up to date. 
This whole thing got me thinking, what could have caused this to happen and two questions came to mind 

  1. I could plaster all this amazing products on my skin but is my insides healthy.  Am I eating or drinking right?
  2. What do I do to change this?

I mean who wants to look like a 35 years old by 24, not me. This definitely brought a change and this is what I have decided to do.

  1. Drink at least 2 litres of water. In the past I would make this decision but won’t actually do it. This time around its have set an alarm clock reminder on my phone and it has helped.
  2. Take less sugar. This has been kinda tough since I love soda (Coca cola) a lot.  Decided that any time I take anything sugary, i would drink 2 glasses of water. This thing is not funny you guys because my bladder keeps crying.
  3. 30 minutes of exercise three times a week. 
  4. Brush my teeth every night. 
  5. Less carbs and Eat more fruits and vegetables.
  6. Get my 7-8 hours of sleep. Noticed when I don’t sleep well I break out a lot. 

These are the changes I have made so far and something tells me I might be adding more. I would definitely be updating you all on this journey with updates on how it is going.

    Omg those skin age tests are so scary, I’ve had a few upsetting results as well haha. Eating healthy and drinking water are really good for your skin and your health in general so it’s great that you’re doing that. Cutting out carbs is so hard for me but I’m trying, sigh. For skincare, I would recommend exfoliating to get rid of dead skin cells on your face. You could buy a scrub or a chemical exfoliant (which tend to work better) or even make your own scrub. Can’t wait to read more about your skincare/health journey. Nice outfit too! xx
