And this decision took me down the rabbit hole because I started researching and bothering my skin care therapist about the Vitamin C benefits for the skin. And now, here I am.
It is no secret that Korean people have beautiful skin. I mean, from those that I’ve come across or interacted with, I cannot help but just wonder at their flawless and unblemished skin.

Whenever I go for my mani-pedis, the nail tech is always asking if I want the ‘normal’ nail polish or the gel nail polish, and my answer is always gel. I prefer to keep my claws and paws looking good for at least 3 weeks. Anyway, this is a question that we are often asked such that we are used to it by now.

Of all skin types, dry skin is considered the most problematic as it needs constant attention and moisturizing.

This is because there are some dry skin home remedies that can be quite effective, with long lasting effects.
Bad skin care hygiene, aging and genetics can sometimes lead to large pores. And the last time I checked no one I know likes enlarged pores, especially on their face. Pores, for those not in the know, are microscopic holes on the skin but sometimes they are not so microscopic especially when you have not been giving your skin some tender love and care. And to get rid of these pores, or at least reduce them, I have done my homework on some pore minimizing face masks that are right within reach.
