You were nervous at first. When the optometrist told you that you’d need glasses, you worried about how your life would change, from the cosmetic-related insecurities to how it was going to affect your everyday tasks, but once you had gone through the process and picked out the perfect pair, you knew it wasn’t going to be all that bad. It would take some getting used to, but you also gained a sense of self-confidence in accepting it as starting a new chapter of your life. After all, you were still you. You with glasses.

Are you learning German? How is it going? What's your schedule like?

yes I am :) it’s going pretty well but I’m not making very good progress with it because I’m not spending enough time on it, so it’s my fault! :/ but the language itself is very beautiful! 

my schedule for all my target languages is the same the only thing that changes is the amount of time i spend on each language.

I have two kinds of goals in language learning:

  1. Stuff I want to practice every day (speaking, listening, writing, reading).
  2. Stuff I want to get done by a certain time (I want to finish my Turkish textbook by September, which works out to 2 chapters a month, which after some experimentation I found out works out to about ½ hour a day).

Or simply try to fit it all in at different parts of the day in between other things because you will find it easier to do things in small doses,  instead of trying to find a big chunk of “language learning time” during the day.

  • Read for 20 minutes on the train/bus to school
  • Listen to a podcast or anything in your target language for 5-10 minutes when you are walking.
  • Work in your textbook when you find yourself free at random times of the day
  • Write a page in you notebook just before going to bed.
  • Chat with a family member or a friend (it better be a native speaker) in your target language whenever you get the chance to do so.

So you will get about an hour a day of (listening + reading + writing + textbook) plus some variable amount of time speaking.
I’ve been doing this  for a pretty long time so they’re just a habit now and I don’t need any will power to do them.
If I had to give you any advice, I would say that will power is a very hard thing to have consistently, but if you build certain things into your day and make them a habit then it’s much easier.

~ I hope you find these tips helpful.


I’m finally home from NY…..lookin a mess per usual lmao. But all them wigs and weaves were getting uncomfortable so I finally got back to my natural and will probably stick with it until I go back to NY next week🤦🏾‍♀️. Anyways I’m currently packing up all my stuff because I’ll be moving to this super nice house I found in Calabasas that I fell in luv with. But the actual move isn’t until this Friday, so I got some time.

Anyways that’s about all that’s happening with me. (That I can tell you👀 lol). But How is everyone doing??

Don't exhaust yourself with writing, or feel that you need to rush! Anything that comes out is your choice, and it's perfect as it is! :D Falling asleep on your keyboard is probably not good for your health

Honey, you know I love my sleep! But yeah, sometimes I do push it past the point of reason :) I think I’m going to set myself a modest goal for tonight to get myself in bed at a decent time, especially since I have work early tomorrow.

Since you’re well aware that I think you’re the bee’s knees, have yourself some space cowboys, my dear — longest blurb yet, though I don’t think I’ll do anything this long again, as I really don’t want to spoil too much for everyone:

Over the course of these eleven months, Pidge had constructed all sort of scenarios, tried to anticipate the different situations in which Lance and Keith could be found. There had been stumbling upon them mid-battle with the Galra, saving them just barely in time and their Lions whisking them away. There had been picking up their signal on a random planet, dropping down to find them kicked back on a beach, sipping bright coloured drinks and cracking jokes about how long they took. And in her darker, most despairing moments, she had pictured Blue and Red armour, filled with cracks and holes, blood spilled on alien soil, and neither moving.

She had heard Shiro’s nightmares, joining him in imagining an arena, both Lance and Keith scarred and missing limbs, fighting each and every day for the chance to live until the next death match.

Then there had been what she considered the worst outcome: never knowing, no sign or hint of them ever again.

And now …

There you go — a big hint of the angst to come ;D *tackle!hugs* Thanks, hun :D

Happy Birthday Iman.

To the wonderful woman who stole our hero’s heart but did it so perfectly. It was clear to see that it made him terribly happy and joyous to be with her & therefore enjoy the future he had found, leapt for and created together.

I do think that as much as Iman could be seen as ‘the mediator’ that meant we saw less of David & maybe even less output and more privacy. But wouldn’t you want him all to yourself if you could have it?

I stand by my opinion of her, she is a good woman, she has her heart in the right place and was a very good influence on him. I mean, Lexi, David was made up with his second chance at parenting, and to have a little girl with her. Iman filled a very deep, dark abyss in his life that had formerly grown and grown after certain elements of his past, that she gave him the confidence to walk away from and learn to enjoy. Proof is in the pudding; analyse 1989 & then 1990 onwards. Smiling? When wasn’t he gleefully smiling.

In other news, to celebrate, finally, an update on my AO3 if anyone here is interested. It’s also due to draft through and post up on my blog separate solely for writing: @d-a-v-i-d-j-o-n-e-s

Love on ya Iman, always.

anonymous asked:

I love your Jikook (i love Kookmin more tbh) analysis, and the way you explain it, very logical. Imo, Jungkook did look at JM as his bro back to 2013-2014 era, he didn't dislike JM tho but not look at JM in a romantic way. He just had a different feeling towards JM in 2015. When I 1st knew Jikook, I thought that ship was another fan-serviced ship like others in Kpop industry u know, and the way JK treated JM that shippers claimed to be special actually JK did the same to other members (1)

(2) like the way he stared at JM like he stared at others when they were talking, butt slapping, chest rubbing and back hugging are like BTS’s habit, they all do the same all the time tho. But I started to change my mind since I noticed all the tension and intimated staring and touching in secret from both of them, I even found out some new moments myself that not many had noticed before (proud haha), and I started to tell myself “they’re…weird, very weird to be a fan-serviced ship or bros”

(4) normal for bros that are very close to eo like BTS to be close and have moments like this, but as you can see, the Kookmin moments we have are all in a secret or private way if I’d be honest that is “because shippers found out about that”. And whenever they had moments that were in front of camera like Vlive or interviews, again they made EVERYBODY feel awkward and sensed something…weird about them. That was when I know…well maybe Kookmin is really real haha again i really love your blog

TYSM for enjoying the analyses, i’m really happy you do <3 ; ; once again, i’m sorry for responding to this so late – unfortunately i think part 3 of your ask got lost, but i think i get where you were going! that early fanservice-y vibe has definitely fallen off of jikook’s image now (now it just feels like endless possessive tug-of-war on twitter but anyway)

umM wait, what was that about new moments that you found? 🌞 if you ever see this, please do tell (only if you want to ofc but… please do)

anonymous asked:

Now, I know everyone loves the trope where finding out that the person you like likes you back but could I have some headcanons for Josuke, Okuyasu, and Jolyne finding out that their crush actually likes someone else?

rolls up sleeves get read for some SADS

- Josuke has probably never had a crush before. He’s used to being the centre of attention for other people, and he knows he’s handsome, but he’s never found himself longing for somebody in the way that other people seem to do for him. If he does develop a crush, it likely comes in over time; first he thinks the person is attractive, and then he spends time with them and it slowly begins to dawn on him how nice they are how funny they are and how much he’d like to spend even more time with them. He probably plans out asking them on a date to make sure it’s romantic, so he can be certain to set the right mood - and then, his crush is forced to let him down very, very gently, and it crushes him. His crush is the kind of person who tries to phrase it as carefully as possible so he doesn’t get his feelings hurt, but it still rankles a little, and it probably pushes him back from dating for a while longer. He tries to act like he’s cool with it in public, but when he gets home he and Tomoko probably watch some rom coms and eat a whole litre of ice cream. 

- Okuyasu makes it obvious when he has a crush, but he doesn’t know how obvious he’s being. As such, his crush has a head start on trying to think of ways not to literally shatter his confidence; he thinks he’s being cool and smooth and debonair, but he’s stuttering and blushing whenever his crush comes near. It takes him a while - and a whole load of encouragement from Josuke - to work up the courage to confess how he feels to them, and honestly? Even though his crush does their best to let him down gently, he still cries. It’s super embarrassing, and he remembers the incident for literally the rest of his life. It puts him off confessing attraction for life; from then on, anyone who’s interested in Okuyasu has to be the one to make it known to him. 

- Jolyne does things she thinks will impress her crush in front of them. Sometimes these are nice things, and sometimes these are dangerous things, but it’s usually the latter. When she’s rejected, she tries to play it off cool - like she was never really interested in them in the first place, like she was just asking them out to be kind, things like that. But she doesn’t give her heart out easily, and being rejected definitely rankles and reminds her that she isn’t wanted, which is one of her biggest insecurities. She cries, too, but not until she’s on her own. She tends to lock her emotions up inside and only lets them come out when she can be sure her vulnerability won’t be seen as weakness. 

anonymous asked:

Viv took things well. Personally I would have tore him apart.

You and me both! I would have ripped him up one side and down the other. Especially after I found out about him letting that guy die for him. That was totally fucked up IMHO. 

But Viv is who she is. She has always loved Luca to a fault and was swayed by the fact that she knows he really is sorry and that he still loves her after all this time. She would literally forgive him just about anything.

The kids on the other hand…..well, you will see on that. They are less quick to forgive him for what he did and he has some major work to do on his relationship with them. But first, he must deal with Trey and the fact that he not only was with his wife knowing he still lived, but he sent men to murder him. 

Things get a bit messy. ♥

anonymous asked:

Your analysis of Murdoc being a Gemini is so interesting! Do you think you'd ever do 2D, because he seems so different from Murdoc, yet they're both gemini's. I always found that kind of intriguing

Hey and thanks! I would love to do one for 2D when I have some more time. I actually think there’s a good bit that he has in common with Murdoc (remember they hung out A LOT in the beginning) along with qualities that they share though how they handle these similarities is very different. They are both very Gemini in both similar and different ways and I’m almost tempted to do a compatibility post as well. 🤔 I also wish we knew their time of birth because then I could look up their entire birth charts lmao. They def have different moon and rising signs.

I’m such a sucker for a slowly developed drarry relationship.

They don’t do the whole “let’s go on dates and gradually get together.” Instead, they get roomed together and after being furious about it for a while, they get used to it.

It just hits Harry one day that Draco makes his bed with a flick of his wand every morning, because Harry always forgets.

It hits Draco one day that Harry always brings him sandwiches when he misses dinner because he’s studying or too overwhelmed to go.

Harry realizes that he hasn’t been waking up from nightmares as often because Draco has started patting his hair when he’s going through it in the middle of the night.

Draco realizes that he and Harry just randomly started sharing the box of chocolates and sweets Mother sends him and without knowing he started placing the box on his desk so Harry could find it easily if he ever wanted one.

And then one day Harry walks into their dorm drunk off his arse and collapses on Draco’s bed instead of his and knocks out. Draco, much to his own horror, finds that he doesn’t mind and falls as sleep as well.

Harry never sleeps again in his own bed.

And then Draco wears Harry’s muggle band tee to bed when the house elves misplace his laundry one night… which yes… it’s a bit short for him, but “it’s comfortable, Potter.” “But Malfoy, they already found your clothes.” “I said it’s comfortable.” (And it smells like you, too… he doesn’t say that though).

And it just becomes natural to sit next to each other in the common room and do their work, or go watch the stars when they both can’t sleep.

They hold hands absentmindedly now, when they’re both working and focused on their essays. At some point boundaries at bed time are lost and tentative legs tangle beneath the sheets.

Hermione questions him about it, Harry pretends he doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Too scared to question it and lose what he has. Too scared Malfoy will push him away.

(It’s okay though, because one day during the Christmas hols, Draco kisses him after the unwraps his gift and Harry kisses back, just as fiercely).

Victor’s Bad Days...

Yuuri will easily come right out and say it.

Some days, Yuuri Katsuki does not want to get up. He doesn’t want to exist, he wants to disappear and never be seen again no matter how wonderful his life may end up. People close to him have known about his anxiety episodes for years. The closest of those people know how to deal with it; when to give him space and when to support him.
He’s satisfied with that group and knows how to cope on his own, accepting that those bad days do not define him. Everyone deserves to take time off sometimes to just breathe…

Everyone, Victor thinks, except himself.

He won’t admit it to anyone, even himself, that a Living Legend can have bad days.

When those days would come before, he’d shut his mind off and focus solely on his skating career. It’s not like he was close enough to anyone for them to notice that something may have been “off”; all his rink mates saw him as a man married to the sport and considered his aloof behavior normal. Little did they know how often Victor wished someone, anyone, would just tell him that he’s not okay and that that fact was okay.

The only person who undoubtedly can see right through him is Yuuri Katsuki, and he always knows when he’s having one of those days. It can be frustrating for someone so used to being alone, but he’s learning to accept the concern and open up a little more when he feels depressed.

Still, it’s difficult, and he almost always denies the real problem.

turning off tumblr’s updated IM ‘online/offline’ feature

Whenever you’re logged in on your account, it’ll show a green dot next to your icon in the instant messaging list. ex:

Some of you people out there (like me) with anxiety problems might be panicking, or maybe you just like your privacy and don’t want people to be able to tell when you’re online every single time. Fortunately Tumblr did a good, and gives you the option to turn this feature off.

All you need to do is go to your account settings ( or go to http://www.tumblr.com/settings/account ), found here:

And turn off this option:

Now if you look, the green online dot is no longer there, but I’m still logged in! 

Sidenote that sideblogs don’t have the ‘availability’ option, only the main blog does, so you don’t need to worry about going to the settings of all your sideblogs to change this.

However know that if you have the availability setting turned ON, all of the sideblogs attached to that blog will ALSO be labeled as ‘online’ whenever you are logged in as well.

“Two sugar cubes as usual?” I ask over my shoulder as the coffee began to brew.

“Yeah,” she answers, “as usual.”

“After all this time?” I look at her, reaching out for the mugs sitting on the counter.

She nods, “Some old habits die hard, you know.”

As the coffee have just finished brewing, I grab the pot and tip it to pour into the mugs.

“What about you?” She suddenly asks as she makes her way over to the counter, as if the words have just found their way into her head,

“Do you still think of her?”

“Done.” I say, pushing the mug towards her after stirring in the sugar, ignoring her question.

“Even after all this time?” She repeats her question.

“Well,” I turn to her after taking a sip, “like what you have said just now,”

“Some old habits die hard, no matter how long it takes.”

for a lot of us, it seems nearly impossible to find a balance between our grades and our health. i’ve created a list of tips and resources for managing classwork as well as mental illness. i tried to be inclusive of depression and anxiety as well as other disorders like adhd and bipolar. (i’d like to be more inclusive of others, but i couldn’t find a lot of resources and wasn’t sure what would help aaaa)

please let me know if you have anything to add, and i hope this post can help you out in some way c:

while studying

  • create a routine, and do your best to stick to it. having a consistent schedule can be a struggle, especially when dealing with long days of class or difficulties with sleep. try something more open-ended and flexible if you can’t manage specific times. (studying for an hour in the morning and before bed vs studying at 8 am and 10 pm)
  • start with your favourite subject. there are a lot of suggestions on how to start a study session (and they usually conflict it seems), but i’ve found that this works best for me. your favourite subject may be easy or difficult, but by starting with it, you get in the groove of studying and won’t get burnt out as quickly, giving you more energy to do your other work.
  • don’t take on more than what you can handle. if you’re feeling motivated, great! get as much done as you can! but on the bad days, just do what you can. there are times where it seems nearly impossible to get anything done, but still try to make the most out of each day and do what you’re able to so you don’t fall far behind. do what you can, when you can. don’t overwork yourself so much.

during class

  • take notes. for me, the easiest way to lose track during a class is if i don’t write or doodle. even if the material doesn’t seem important, write it down! it may be useful later, and it’ll keep your mind from wandering during lecture. (that being said, don’t always write things exactly as the teacher says; putting it into your own words can make it easier to remember and understand)
  • record lecture audio. if you can’t copy everything down in time, or if for whatever reason you need to know something verbatim, then you’ll have something to listen to again later.
  • take pics of what the instructor writes on the board. similar to the above tip, you can refer back to the pictures you took. just don’t forget about them! write yourself a note or make an alarm on your phone to remind you that there’s more material to review. don’t be the kid who takes pictures during the whole lecture but never writes anything, that kid’s obnoxious and gets bad grades
  • stay focused. i fidget a lot with my hands and feet, especially during a long lecture or study session. i find that keeping my hand on my pen/pencil is the simplest way to keep my mind on track, but fidget toys may help you as well. most teachers and students are fine with it as long as it’s not too disruptive.

at home

  • keep track of medication. ngl i am suuuper forgetful when it comes to medication :’) if you’re forgetful too, leave yourself as many reminders as you can. set alarms, write notes, or have someone else keep you accountable if you’re living with a parent or roommate. having routine helps here as well, especially if you take meds multiple times a day.
  • communicate regularly with your doctor. if you’re living away from home, or just a busy student, it can be particularly difficult to make appointments. but you should still make an effort to email your doctor, therapist, etc. at least once a month, and more often if you’re currently changing or adjusting medications.
  • “catching up” on sleep is a myth. depriving yourself of sleep during the week and then sleeping in on the weekends won’t fix your sleep schedule, sadly. keep it consistent if you can. even if you’re staying up late and sleeping in, try to get at least 7-8 hours. whether it’s 12-8 am or 2-10 am, it’s a reasonable amount for getting through the day. sleeping too little can leave you tired and grumpy in the morning, but sleeping too much can also leave you groggy, sluggish, and unproductive for the rest of the day.
  • eat something healthy. okay, no one can eat healthy all the time, and i don’t expect you to. i certainly don’t expect myself to lol. but we can still find a healthy snack or meal to make a part of our lives. sometimes fruit is the best comfort food tbh. here are a few simple snacks that you could try, for studying or for whatever else. i personally enjoy anything with berries, especially yogurt parfait or oatmeal.
  • have a support system. it helps so much to have someone you can talk to when you’re not feeling well or in need of encouragement. it can be a friend, a parent, a sibling, your significant other, or even other members of the studyblr community! (if you don’t have anyone to talk to, please talk to me!! i am here for you my friendo)

other stuff

  • community college by @universi-tea - if you’re worried about moving into dorms or away from home (or are simply unable to), i strongly encourage you to try out community college. it’s made schooling much more enjoyable and accessible for me and i think everyone should give it a chance. plus it’s waaay cheaper.
    • also, most (if not all) U.S. schools have a disability services department; this applies to both physical and mental illnesses. talking to them for the first time can be nerve-wracking, but in the long run it’s completely worth it. teachers and staff want to help you! but you have to help yourself a lil bit too. accommodations may include leniency about attendance and deadlines, or they may let you take exams on earlier or later dates with fewer students present. the flexibility with deadlines has saved my ass more than once tbh
  • things to do when things don’t feel right by @affectionsuggestions - sometimes it’s okay to just do small things, and sometimes it’s okay to not do anything at all.
  • ways to start feeling again by @urbanthropologie - similar to above, but with a focus on mindfulness (helps with anxiety, dissociation, etc)
  • my mental illness tag - this has many other resources that are otherwise not listed in this post.
  • my printables tag! - printables are great for when you’re too tired or not sure how to write things out completely by hand. there are some planners and calendars as well as gratitude logs, habit trackers, etc.
  • i have tons of other tags listed here if you need anything more specific :>

thank you for reading! i hope you found some of these tips helpful. i believe in you!!


Guys, this tumblr will be inactive for a long time, I’ve gone through an emotional problem that hurted me. I’ve never seen myself as the kind or nice person that I should be, I actually don’t know how to act around people.

I’ve to announce that I’m a severely ill person, I tend to get severely sick constantly, and I have a noticeable health problem. I’m constantly thinking that I’m going to die soon, I don’t know, nothing is certain, but I’m always thinking on this stuff. Until some time ago, these thoughts were being dissipated because of other stuff… but some days ago, they found me again on this emotional state…
I’m not a constant person, I tend to abandom my dreams quickly because a part of me is saying that I don’t deserve it.

I was born on spain 23 years ago, and well… everything in my life was good… at least the first few years of my life. I wasn’t aware of my surroundings, but my father was secretly stealing money from my mother to buy drugs, and the problem grew after some time. Slowly, he didn’t only steal money, but also objects from the house, like my toys, videoconsoles and even the oven.

My mother divorced my father, and I felt depressed, thinking that everything was my fault, since they were constantly telling me that they wouldn’t need to bear with each other if it wasn’t because of me.

With some time, the scar started to heal… and my mother decided to rearrange her life with a mexican that she met on the internet.
The fact that my mother could be happy again was making me happy. We went to live in Mexico, and everything seemed fine, until that man started to beat me for no reason. At first, it was because of my grades, but later it was because I didn’t look at him in the eyes when he was talking to me (I was scared and I putted my head down) and later it was because of stupid things such as looking at kids playing through the window (Since I wasn’t allowed to go out). I remember that when I heard him coming, I would hide in a corner of the room, curled up, praying that he wouldn’t come in, so that he wouldn’t see me. But it wasn’t like that, he always saw me, and he always beated me up.

I was able to leave that place thanks to my grandmother, who was still living in spain. After 7 years of physical abuse, I was able to leave. In spain, I felt safe with my grandmother, or that’s what I thought. My uncle (my mother’s brother) started to take advantage of me, saying bad stuff to me and raising his hand against me, because ‘’I’m the daughter of my mother, so I was destined to be like her’’, and he was saying that I needed to change.

My grandmother died 2 years later, and my uncle didn’t want to take care of me… However, I escaped. I lived on the street for some days, until a friend took me in, but in exchange, I had to do the chores in the house… I spent a lot of time being treated like Cinderella… until I finally found a kind of decent job, and I started to draw Dreamtale…

This is the story of my life, until now, a few people knew about it… I have a lot of emotional problems because of my past. It hurts me a lot, but I also have some health issues. I don’t know how much longer  will my life last, I don’t know if I’ll keep being alive tomorrow… what I do know is that I need to take a breath. I’ve only taken pain during all my way…and I want this pain to stop.

Please, have patience…

[Allure] K-Pop Group BTS Reveals Its Biggest Beauty Secrets for Glowing Skin

Written by Devon Abelman

Last month, BTS, a K-Pop group from Seoul, cemented itself in American pop culture by winning the Top Social Artist Award at the Billboard Music Awards. The second the boy band hit the magenta red carpet, thousands were exposed to the wonders of K-Pop. Since then, people have been quick to call BTS, which is short for Bangtan Sonyeondan (or Bulletproof Boy Scouts in English), the One Direction of South Korea. However, that’s just an easy way to give them some context. In reality, BTS is actually completely different. Why? The seven-piece group’s performances are complete with flawless choreography, expert rapping, high-fashion looks, and insanely catchy vocals. Oh yeah, and they look damn good while doing so.

No matter where BTS is, their skin is forever smooth and has an enviable glow to it. Their eyes are typically adorned with a subtle smoky eye look, which both Jin and Jimin told me is their favorite part of wearing makeup. Their lips always have that popsicle-stained look that everyone’s been craving lately. Their hair colors are constantly changing, too. In 2017 alone, Jimin’s hair has been bubblegum pink, silver, platinum blonde, sandy blonde, and caramel brown. If they had to choose just one shade, though, Rap Monster tells Allure that he prefers “ash gray and ash blue because these complement my skin tone well.” Agreed. Also, Suga added that his favorite hair color is blonde because “I just need to de-color and that’s it.”

The beauty aspect of BTS’s fame alone separates them from the likes of One Direction, the Jonas Brothers, and the Backstreet Boys. And their legions of fans, lovingly called A.R.M.Y., live for it. YouTube is filled with makeup tutorials inspired by looks from BTS’s music videos. A whole Tumblr account called Dewy Bangtan is even devoted to tracking down the beauty products BTS uses based on screenshots from behind-the-scenes videos.

Why is it important to you to take good care of your skin?

Jin: “Skin is what completes my appearance. I value my looks very much, so it’s equally important to take good care of my skin — that’s a pivotal part of my face.”

J-Hope: “Taking good care of your skin is the No.1 rule for all celebs. I get to meet a lot of fans face-to-face at fan meetings and similar events, and I’d like to look my best for them.”

What’s your biggest skin concern?

Rap Monster: “My skin is dry most of the time, and my biggest concern is keeping it [moisturized]. I get zits from time to time and that concerns me as well.”

Jungkook: “I get pimples sometimes, and it’s very stressful.”

You guys travel a lot. Do you do any skin-care treatments while you’re on the plane to keep your skin from freaking out?

V: “On the plane, I dampen cotton pads with toner and put on lotion twice as much.”

Jimin: “I don’t really do anything extra special for my skin on the plane, but I try to drink as much water as possible.”

What are some of your favorite beauty products?

V: “I’ve been looking for my absolute favorite beauty product for a long time because my skin becomes dry and oily relatively fast. I haven’t found the right one, but I’m not giving up! Any recommendations?”

What is your skin routine like?

J-Hope: “[In the morning, I use] toner and face cream. [At night, the steps are] toner, essence, acne care, lotion, cream.”

Jungkook: “Toner and cream for night and morning routine.”

A lot of people find skin care routines to be a form of self care. Do you agree?

Rap Monster: “I totally agree. My favorite brand is Mediheal, and it has a variety of sheet masks you can choose from after a long day of work.”

Jimin: “I do agree because I try to clear my mind by cleansing my face after performances.”

Do you have any bad skin care habits?

Suga: “My bad habit is that I don’t take care of my skin.”

V: “I don’t particularly have a bad habit, but I’m worried about my skin having lack of elasticity. How can I prevent this?”

Are there any Korean beauty trends that you particularly love?

Jin: “I love sheet masks. I try to put them on whenever I feel my skin is dry and exposed too much to the sun. They help me make up for lost moisture and brighten my skin.”

Do you have any go-to skin care tips for clear, glowing skin?

J-Hope: “I try to go to the dermatologist when I have some free time after work.”

Jungkook: “I wish I had one! Let me know, and I’ll try.”

Excuse me while I send Jungkook my list. If I learned anything from the Bangtan Boys, it’s staying diligent with toner, using it day and night (and on the plane). If you need a recc or two, Allure editors are loving the Kopari Coconut Rose Toner and the Milk Makeup Matcha Toner right now.
