treat me like a mimosa pudica or i’ll wilt

Tbh I kinda’ like being alone. It’s not always out of choice, but out of necessity. Now, don’t get me wrong. It’s nice meeting new people and hanging out with friends. But… people can also be really exhausting. Careless. Fickle. Insensitive.

So what even is hyperpigmentation? For those not in the know, hyperpigmentation is basically a broad term used to describe instances when you get spots on your skin that are darker or a different color than the rest of your body.

sunscreen shelsey

wear some damn sunscreen

Between never putting on sunscreen, never re-applying, getting shit sleep, tanning, or whatever other abrasive skincare routines you have going, it’s no wonder some of you might end up looking like a crypt keeper by the time you’re 30. And yes, this includes everyone of every skin color under the sun (haha, see what I did there?).

put down the oils & wash your hair (trust me)

I feel like I’ve been deceived most of my life about how I’m supposed to manage my hair. There’s so much misleading information out there about what it means to moisturize. I’ve used all kinds of oils and creams for years, thinking I was actually doing something to bring out my curls. In reality, my hair was becoming dry, lifeless, and frizzy to boot.
