Time to Flip The Script.
When everything thrust your way is negative, you’re down before you’ve even started right?
Well, perhaps perspective is everything. We thought maybe starting from a different place, would not only make things easier, but actually make them more enjoyable. So out with the deficits, and in with the prerequisites! Actually, the only prerequisite we are bringing is a clean slate!
A different approach to beauty and skin type
Let’s talk about our skin. Just like us, no skin is perfect. Just like us, our skin just wants to be happy. Well, ħanini skincare have decided to flip the script. By telling you the GREAT things about your skin, we are starting off in a much better place! Being familiar with your own skin type is definitely helpful, but equally it isn’t always a standard box ticking solution. So many aspects can play a part, from environment to stress to sleep. What works for one person might be totally unhelpful for another even though they both have the same skin ‘type’. The variation of natural abilities we all possess are just as unique as our own intuitive skin types! Considering the plethora of variables, we reckon that focusing on your specific skin need, will be a really beneficial approach.
In the eye of the beholder
Unrealistic beauty standards though. Where did all that go wrong? Although a fascinating conversation, pulling apart an element of our society’s demise and the constant unnecessary pressures, are not for today. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder right? Yep, that’s you. You’re the only one you need to impress, you are your only competition. Hand yourself that huge bag of grace that you so effortlessly shower on everyone else, remember that you are amazing yet not perfect, just like the rest of us, and stumble your way through as inelegantly as you fancy. It’s not the destination that matters, it’s the journey.
One final prerequisite...
Positive self-talk is a must.
(I love you in Maltese)
We'd love to hear what you think.
How do we stop the normalising of unrealistic and narrowly defined beauty standards, especially on social media?
How can we help teach our younger generation that the key to building self-esteem is NOT physical ‘perfection’.

There is no ‘I’ in Team. Loyal to the core, building community is a must, just needs occasional prompting to make sure it is level from the start. Incredible skills, but without intending to some can get left behind. Regular system check in is key.

Young at heart always. Plenty practice and reiteration on consequence is needed, as impulsivity can often be the easier option! Likes to keep you on your toes, sneaks up when least expecting it, and thrives on being centre of attention. Needs reminding that the power struggle is never worth it in the long term!
