NEUTROGENA® #NOMASPOROS challenge!

This a compensated post in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and NEUTROGENA®. Opinions and experiences with product are my OWN! <3


Hey guys! Took the Neutrogena #NoMasPoros(no more pores)challenge! I have to be honest, I’m one of those “low maintenance”(AKA LAZY) girls. seriously had to google search what pores were, because unlike Regina George, I never noticed them. 
Once I did, my reaction was like:


“Lemme just see what these ‘pores’ are all about.”


“Wait. ARE THOSE HOLES ON MY FACE.”


“Whatever. Who cares. I don’t care.”


“I CARE. OKAY?! THERE ARE HOLES ON MY FACEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. I AM A SPONGE FOR DIRTTTTTT” 
(BTW-Just got done with a Dawson’s Creek netflix binge. Sorry for the Dawson gifs.LOL)


So, yeah. I was pretty shocked. LUCKILY- there are AWESOME pore refining products. Like NEUTROGENA® PORE REFINING® products!






First, I used theNEUTROGENA® Pore Refining® Exfoliating Cleanser  and NEUTROGENA® Pore Refining® Daily Cleanser   to cleanse my face, and get rid of all that icky dead surface skin. 
The cool thing about these cleansers is that they even out your skin tone. 
Which is good if you have some discoloration from any acne scars!
(These cleansers won’t dry out your face, btw!)   

The NEUTROGENA® Pore Refining® Toner is another way to get rid of dead skin and even out your skin. I just used a napkin to dab it on my face. 
The NEW! NEUTROGENA® Pore Refining® Moisturizer (in-stores in August) is the product that’ll ATTACK your pores without clogging them! I applied it directly to my pore area.




Here are the results! (NO, I did NOT photoshop this) With anything, this will only work if you are consistent. I’m finally getting into the habit of practicing good skin care! And you should too!

Love, Maya

5 WAYS TO SURVIVE VALENTINE’S DAY

Here are my tips on surviving Valentine’s Day! This isn’t a post about bringing out your inner troll, it’s about how to survive this day and turn it into a positive one!

1.STOP BEING BITTER

I know it’s “single awareness day”, but just because you’re single doesn’t mean you have to be the troll that ruins it for everyone else. Honestly, It makes you look str8 up UGLYYYYY.  Wipe that stank face off, and put on a smile. It looks AND feels much better than a grumpy cat frown.. You have EVERY right to feel bitter, but if you let ONE DAY out of the year affect you so much that you have to rain on other’s parades, you need to reevaluate your attitude. Choose happiness. 🙂

2. GET OFF THE INTERNET


There’s one way to avoid today. Get out the interwebz! You know there’s going to be so much lovey dovey stuff on the internet. Not havin’ it today? Disconnect. Go outside! Go to the park, go get a coffee,(ok wait…maybe just drive thru to avoid the couples.lol) My point is, fill your day with things YOU love, away from the web. Be productive, or just have a relaxing day watching Disney movies on Netflix!(just me? ok…)

3. FRIENDS!

LOL what are those? Jk…Call up your friends and have a classic Slumber party! Sometimes hanging out with your single friends is better than a being alone. You guys can eat junk food, watch mean girls, and talk about how relationships ARE STUPID AND BOYS ARE STUPID AND LOVE IS STUPID. Or something like that. <3

4. RANDOM ACTS OF LOVE


See? Even Voldemort gives hugs. Turn this day around and give someone a random act of love. The only way to fix a frown, is to give someone a smile. Give someone you love, romantic or not, a letter as to why you love and appreciate them. Stop thinking about yourself, and give love to your friends, and family!

5. LOVE YOURSELF

Ugh I knowwww. BARF. Just hear me out. There’s a reason why you’re feeling bitter. Maybe it’s because you hate this commercialized day, or maybe you’re upset because you don’t have your person yet. Sometimes I find myself down in the dumps asking, “What’s wrong with me? Don’t I deserve someone?” I realized it’s all about self love. First you have to realize that YOU are a prize to be won. This is for girls AND boys. Once you accept this, you learn that you deserve someone super DUPER awesome. 
EVERYDAY should be love day. And I’m sending out allllll the love vibes in the world to you guys! 🙂

Love, Maya
