“One of the biggest misconceptions and fallacies in skincare is the idea of perfect skin, there really is no such thing as perfect skin. You can have a blemish, a pimple, or enlarged pores and still have nice healthy skin. You can have good skin days and bad skin days, but that doesn't mean you don't have healthy skin. What it means is that your skin is normal. There are days of fluctuation in everything which is important to recognize especially in an age of Instagram filters and photo manipulation.
