Being a teenager all over again

Everyday I wish I could back the hands of time. But having my complexion go back to my teenage days is no joke. And by that I mean all red and pimply. Of course it’s nicely concealed with my wonderful Boi-ing concealer from Benefit, so it’s not that obvious … or so I hope.

The reason for this outbreak, is undoubtedly my body’s way to reacting to the amount of stress I have been facing lately. For the past 2 month or so, things at work have been crazy, busy and hectic. Okay maybe not that busy since I’m not camping in the office yet. But it’s been stressful, very very STRESSFUL 🙁

And because I’ve been working later than usual, I’ve also been neglecting my health; settling for junk food as a quick bite for dinner, skipping my exercise, forgetting to drink more water and neglecting my skin care regime. Which are all possible contributors to the gazillion zits on my face right now I tell you.

So this juggling mom has been dropping some balls in her life and feeling like I need more work life balance. But I’m reminding myself to think happy thoughts and learn to take things in my stride. After all, there’s more to life than work (This is on repeat mode in my head while at work everyday).

So I’m reminding myself that I have to take care of myself so that I can take better care of my family. This includes resting well and eating well while I’m putting in the hours as a working mom. Is there anything I have missed out?

Yes, getting a full 7-8 hours of beauty sleep which is just what I need about now! Good night!

    Oh dear, too much stress is not good over a prolonged period. Do take care! I hope things at work improve soon. Good on you for still being able to look at things positively! =)

      Thanks June. Things at work is still pretty busy but at least I have my vacation to look forward too. Everyone knows that a holiday always does wonder to the body, mind and soul!

    Maybe u should consider going to dermatologist…usually they will give better topical creams than the over the counter ones. I find that the ones that most cosmetic brands produce tend to make the condition worse for me. Also do drink more water, and eat more fruits to detox, that will help. And take it easier at work.

      Thanks Rachel. I’ll definitely heed your advise on taking things easier but my bosses are just not letting up. But yes, perhaps its time for some detox in my life, in terms of diet and work 😛
