Interviews, Selfies and Dry Skin
How do I find the support I need during a difficult time?
Hello Gloomy Girl,
Talk to someone you’re comfortable with. This can be a friend, a family member or even a peer. There are people who care about you and are more than willing to support you. Don’t hesitate to reach out for the help you’re looking for.
My skin is as dry as the desert. Do you have any skin care tips for me?
Many dermatologists recommend ointments or creams instead of lotions. Try using products that are unscented because some scented skin care products are too harsh for dry or sensitive skin. Avoid taking showers that are too hot because hot water strips away the body’s natural oils. Moisturize your skin right after you take a shower: the thicker the moisturizer the better.
Many people also use a humidifier to create more moisture in their living space. Hopefully some of these tips can help you. If it’s a serious problem, your doctor can recommend something for you.
How do I let people know I just need some time to myself? I’m more introverted than most of my friends and they think I’m upset with them when I try to spend time alone.
Tell them what’s up. If they’re your friends, they’ll understand. Your friends would much rather know what’s really going on than believe you’re upset with them. If you need more space than your friends they should be cool with it.
I’m nervous about a job interview. What should I do to make sure I nail it?
Hello Anxious Applicant,
Just be yourself. Channel your nervousness into confidence to let them know you’re the right person for the job. Hopefully you’ll get the job, but if you don’t, remember there’s something better suited for you out there! If they decide they want to go a different direction, that just means you get to look for an even better opportunity.
How much time is too much time on Instagram?
What’s up Selfie addict,
That’s really up to you. If you’re able to complete all your daily tasks and decide to spend your free time on Instagram, it’s not a problem. It’s okay to want a little downtime. Just make sure you don’t forget the difference between reality and the reality of the internet. Make healthy choices for your body and mind.
