by evilnymphstuff

Acne is something no one wants to deal with, but almost all of us have to face it at some point. Acne can mar your natural beauty, making you feel self-conscious. It can strip you of your confidence and make it hard for you to get out and enjoy being with friends or going places. It can also be quite painful.

You may scrub and scrub your face with soaps, toners and other products that promise to clear your acne, all with no success. Or you may not want to use such harsh chemicals on your face and are looking for natural remedies instead. Here are 5 natural (and effective) remedies that you can use to treat your acne and start taking back your confidence:

Guest Post: Ways To Boost The Morale Of Your Physically Challenged Teen

by evilnymphstuff

Hey everyone! Since Chinese New Year, I’ve been so busy and now I have to catch up with work at school and so on, I’ve been overwhelmed by struggling to find my career path, well what I want to do in university next year, a lot of confusion and decisions to make… thus that’s why I seemed rather absent in the blogosphere. Moreover I’ve had some problems with the internet lately…

Thus, the blogging schedule is going to be a little distorted this week, (from last week in fact, since I made no ‘Weekly Photo Challenge’ post), but soon I’ll hopefully get back to my usual blogging pace. For today, here’s a little yet very instructive guest post by Jack Holland:

 

Ways To Boost The Morale Of Your Physically Challenged Teen

Being born with a physical disability like cerebral palsy, spina bifida or any of a host of others can be trying on any child. On teens— with the media, peer pressure, and the desire to fit in—it can be much worse.

Guest Post: Top 3 Recreational Activities for Troubled Teens

by evilnymphstuff

The adolescent years can be quite turbulent for young people, as they face a new set of physical and emotional challenges. Even teens that live in a stable home environment have a difficult time when they reach their teens. The situation can escalate when both parents work full time and have little time to spend with their troubled teens.

Many parents of troubled teens resort to boarding schools as the solution to helping their young people overcome “teen problems.” Although boarding schools are not miracle cures, they do offer a solid structure that includes academic education, vocational training, outdoor activities, etc. that can keep teens busy and challenged. The following recreational activities are but a few that can help relieve some of the tension and stress that teens go through at this time of their lives.

The Art Of… Writing To Myself

by evilnymphstuff

Hey! As you might have noticed, I am temporarily taking a break from my ‘Unpredicted’ series since I’m in the middle of the final exams period, which led me to get depressed before it started, then when it started I actually got sick and it just became a mess in my head… Nevertheless I happened to get inspiration for song lyrics, which you can enjoy here, but then I got a little depressed again and stressed and left alone in the past weekend because of more revision work…

And that’s – weirdly – how I got to develop a new little hobby: writing letters to my younger self.

It’s plain wrong. Oh..and unfair too! (Bullying at school)

by evilnymphstuff

evilnymphstuff:

INJUSTICE! I’m so disappointed with their behaviour….

Originally posted on The Diary Of Lex Keridwen:

This week was all wrong. It broke and redefined all the conceptions I had of my school but unfortunately the conclusions were scary and revolting. Our school is considered an ‘elite’ high school which only brilliant girls attend but sadly intelligence doesn’t always rhyme with good conduct or nice manners…

Bullying is the act of intimidating a weaker person. Bullying is being noisily domineering. Bullying is aggressive behavior, with negative intent, directed from one person to another where there is a power imbalance. Bullying is similar to a hate crime. But most importantly, bullying is wrong! Everywhere these can be read, be it on the net or in brochures, and all promote ‘reporting bullying’, ‘standing up’ and ‘speaking out’. They say stuff like ‘Kids must be able to safely report incidents of bullying, knowing when to report, how to report, and where to report. Students must know that they will be heard and that you will…

Why Avoid The Unavoidable?

by evilnymphstuff

Why avoid the unavoidable? Life itself is so simple, but we make it complicated.

We limit ourselves… and sometimes it just makes everything worse.

“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.” 
― Neil GaimanThe Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

Yes, for teenagers, school is a perfect example of what I’m going to write about today. Of course, I won’t say that this type of education isn’t important; it does have advantages like, it is now critical to have passed high school and at least followed tertiary courses to have a stable and respectable job.

Back to Teens!

by evilnymphstuff

I’d never thought that I’d come back to teens’ books.

I usually read young adults or adults books, you know those which are 400+ pages :P As an avid reader since I was born (yeps my mom did the reading for me until I was grown enough to read by my own – I was so excited at that time and frustrated that I didn’t know many words), my reading levels went up very quickly. I read teens books when I went to secondary school therefore at 11 years of age. I read R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike, well there were so many. But NO Sweet Valley or things like that! Yeps at that age I was also very picky about books… and authors! There was a time when I would only read Pike’s books and no one else. Of course that changed. Then at 13 I think, I started with literary books like Jane Austen and Charles Dickens and Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo and…

5 Easy Facial Skin Care Tips

by evilnymphstuff

When you feel the need to take care of your skin – especially at teenage with all the pimples etc. – and you search through the net or go to a pharmaceutist for advice, they all end up telling you these 3 main things:

1. Buy a face cleanser and use it twice a day

2. Buy a toner to be applied just after the cleanser for your pores’ sake!

3. Buy a moisturiser

There are so many other products that they all counsel you and you use up all your money.

Even I bought a face cleanser… but in fact these are only quick-fix solutions, as today everyone wants to have everything to be done in one click!

I discovered 5 most important things to do for a better healthier skin – it will take time though, much more than if you buy all these. But it saves you money and time. I just had to share it with you. The funniest thing is that most of you already do most of these things daily, without knowing that they are indeed beneficial to your skin.
