I recently read an article on @Elitedaily by @aratagrams on what #filters are creating in the mind for women. It said,
“Like every kind of social media, Snapchat is a company with its own agenda. It wants to flatter & persuade you to keep using it, but has no obligation to tell you the truth or take responsibility.” That stood out most to me.
A lot of us lack self-care & make it a habit to put a filter on our life. We don’t take control because we can just cover it up. But it’s not easy to cover up low self-esteem.
I’ve never had great skin. Terrible eczema, dry skin & acne breakouts.
The top photo is the result of excessive fast food, daily Diet Dr.Pepper, tolerated stress & a lack of self discipline.
The bottom pic is the result of consistency, eating cleaner, drinking only enhanced flavoured water, applying quality skin care products & never skipping a day on vitamins. Shout out to Bre’ett for the style btw 🙌 @bresbeautybar
Outside of that, sometimes I go a few weeks not eating meat or wearing makeup. My new lifestyle completely detoxified my skin & the tone changed.
I don’t always use filters but I notice if I do it’s to enhance or take away from something on my face that could be handled. The only way to do this is by taking responsibility & changing how I live from any angle & #nofilter.
I only looked like what I ate & what I was going through. This was not who I was, just what I allowed to happen to me.
