The 7 Korean Steps you MUST know for Younger & Radiant Skin!

Hello there my wonderful Beau's i have missed you all I am here to give you some tips on how to take care of your skin the Korean way. We all know that every Korean star and Idol have to take care of their face they have to stay presentable in front of fans and millions of camera's. I’m sure we all want that too, we sometimes envy them because of their soft pore less skin. I consider myself one of them who always desire their skin. Well let me tell you something that you didn’t know about Korean people do in their daily lives to keep that skin perfect! without using Photoshop.
Should we get started?
VAMONOS!

1. Sun Exposure

Koreans hate the sun, it’s their worst enemy. That’s why they wear hats, glasses anything that has sleeves so they don’t get burned. Here’s are some little facts about sun exposure,
Radiation from the sun is the number-one cause of skin cancer, but UV light from tanning beds is just as harmful. Exposure to sunlight during the winter months puts you at the same risk as exposure during the summertime, because UVA rays are present in daylight.
Pre-cancerous (actinic keratosis) and cancerous (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma) skin lesions - due to decreases in the skin's immune function
Benign tumors
• Fine and coarse wrinkles
• Freckles
• Discolored areas of the skin
• Sallowness -- a yellow discoloration of the skin
• Telangiectasias -- the dilation of small blood vessels under the skin
• Elastosis -- the destruction of the elastic and collagen tissue (causing lines, wrinkles and sagging skin)
What can you do to prevent all these?

2. Sun screen

Yes I just said it! Sun screen is their best friend, they butter themselves up with sunblock the higher SPF protection it has the better, because being pale has never been great!
Sunscreen forms a barrier between your skin and the UV rays of the sun, the higher the SPF the more protection the sunscreen offers. You can still tan if you use a SPF15 but if you use for example an SPF40 you will have total protection. Many facial moisturizers now have SPF15 as standard, this offers a light daily protection for your skin. Being exposed to UV rays in summer increases the melanin in your skin and brings it to the surface causing a light pigmentation or "tan". If the sun exposure is decreased the tan fades and your skin returns to its natural level of pigmentation. Obviously in winter there is less sun so that's why they’re paler in winter.
What are the top five reasons everyone should wear sunscreen?
1. The ozone layer is depleting and your body needs shielding from harmful rays.
2. Skin cancer rates are on the rise and sunscreen has been proven to decrease the development of skin cancer.
3. It helps to prevent facial brown spots and skin discolorations.
4. It also helps to reduce the appearance of facial red veins and blotchiness.
5. It slows down the development of wrinkled, premature aging skin.
Another important thing that is a must for every Korean is,

3. Dermatologist’s

Let me tell you it is normal for guys to go there, when I first heard this from my friend I couldn’t believe him. It’s a guy!! Korean men do whatever it takes just to look good, I mean for us in the States going to a dermatologist is because you suffer from a skin problem well for them it’s not always that. They go there for facials, for freckle removals and even for brightening the skin! It’s crazy how they really take care of themselves. No wonder they have wonderful and radiant skin.
SOME OF THE BIGGEST SKIN CARE CONCERNS THAT PEOPLE HAVE IN KOREA:
Patients want to decrease hyperpigmentation and increase skin “translucency.” Skin tightening and reducing acne scarring are close seconds, and women are downright nitpicky about it. “Women here demand 100% absolutely flawless and pristine skin,” “Women put a lot of effort into maintaining perfect skin.” Doctors end up performing and recommending many more treatments than here in the U.S., because women want these interventions. Because it’s so competitive for services, prices stay relatively low.
So basically they have to go every two weeks to the dermatologist to have their skin treated, no wonder they have flawless skin. Plus the prices in Korea are outrageously cheap compared here in the States. The going rate for a "cheaper" dermatologist here in the States is typically between $100 and $170 per visit. An "expensive" dermatologist might charge upwards of $200. Compared to Korea $44.80 for an acne treatment and for Age spot removals are about $89.61.
Take my money NOW!! Say no more I am moving to Korea!
If you cannot afford these then there are other ways,

4. Whitening does not mean bleaching or that everybody Korean wants to be white.Tons of Korean products “whitening” as a benefit.

This does not mean you are going to bleach your skin or that you are going to start looking more like a white person or that Koreans have an ultimate goal of having white skin. In this case, whitening is synonymous with brightening, and essentially all Korean products that offer “whitening” are basically vitamin C-based rejuvenators and brighteners, not skin bleaches. Get it right people!

5. Buy a nylon washcloth.

Like these. Sure, they’re made in Japan. Whatever. It’s an essential for any Korean skincare regimen, and every Korean you know either uses one or grew up with their mom using one. It’s gentle enough to exfoliate your body every day, and you can use it with any body wash you like. Your skin will feel satisfyingly clean and smooth. These are available in any Korean general store in your local Ktown (Or maybe even closer! or you can buy them online. These washcloths will keep you fresh in between body scrubs.

6. Get naked, and get a body scrub.

Get to Koreatown, and to the jimjilbang of your choice for a full body scrub. You don’t need a Korean friend to take you. Yelp is ripe with reviews of jimjilbang, or bath houses, and can help you find one that fits your style. Generally, you’ll soak in various tubs, get naked, and then be escorted to a special area to have an older, no-nonsense Korean ajumma scrub you from head to toe with a special exfoliating cloth, called a “Korean Italy towel.” The genesis of the name? Who knows? I do know you will lose 18 lbs in dead skin cells, and if you can get over your bashfulness of having an old Korean lady scrubbing intimately in all of your crevices, you will like it.

7. The Golden Korean Skin Care Steps

1. Toners
Are used after cleansing, to balance the Ph of your skin. These are neutralizing products to help prepare your skin for the products to come. This is not the stripping-oil-weird-tingly-sensation toners we remember from puberty. They can be splashed or spritzed on your face and patted on lightly with your fingertips.
2. Essences
are the next step, after your skin is primed by a toner. They are lightweight and have a specific agenda: brightening, tightening, moisturizing, etc. Can be used solo or in conjunction with serums.
3. Serums, or ampoules,
operate much like serums in Western brands. They are the unglamorous workhorses of skincare. They are heavier than essences and used to pack major beauty-enhancing punch. Tons of different serums are available depending on what you’re prioritizing, such as anti-aging or brightening or what have you. Use this as third step.
4. Next come emulsions.
Basically a featherweight moisturizer. If you have, say, oily skin and will not see the sun all day, this might serve as your only moisturizer. But since Koreans live and die by moisture and sunscreen, this will very rarely be your last step.
5. Cream.
There are day creams, there are night creams, there are so many creams.
Go with what feels good.
I hope you all enjoyed this segment and I hope you all try this! because I will ! even PSY approves this message lol! this has been it till next card make sure to subscribe to our Kbeauty and KFashion section for more Updates on skincare!
Hasta la vista beau's!
Stay Flawless!

5 Sure Ways To Get Young And Glowing Skin
You may have the spirit of a child, ready to take on the world. But what if your skin tone isn't a good match? Here are the top 5 treatments for looking youthful and ready to face the world... Chemical Peeling A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing technique that removes your skin's top layer. This can help reduce wrinkles, dullness, and hyperpigmentation. A chemical peel is performed by applying a liquid to the face, which is subsequently wiped away. A gentle chemical peel enhances skin texture and tone while also making fine wrinkles less visible. The results are minor at first, but as treatments are repeated, they become more noticeable. If you get a medium chemical peel, the treated skin will be noticeably smoother. Botox Botulinum toxin is most commonly utilised in Botox treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other facial lines. Botox injections are painless and are administered using a tiny eyelash-like needle. The FDA has approved the procedure, and the benefits are obvious within three days. You will need to repeat the procedure every 3-5 months if you want to retain your wrinkle-free appearance. Dermal Fillers Dermal fillers are cosmetic fillers used to increase the volume and fullness of your skin. This therapy reduces the visibility of the most typical indicators of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Women frequently utilise dermal fillers to make themselves appear younger. Dermal fillers are hyaluronic gel injections that support and volumize drooping parts of the face. Microdermabrasion Microdermabrasion can make your skin seem better by decreasing fine wrinkles, early UV damage, and minor, superficial acne scars. It does not work for repairing deep acne scars or wrinkles. Skin may become visibly smoother and more responsive to moisturisers after just one treatment. During the treatment, aluminium oxide crystals are gently sanded into your skin. Ultherapy Ultherapy is a nonsurgical facelift treatment. It is the only FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure for elevating the neck, chin, and brow, as well as smoothing out creases and wrinkles. Ultherapy® results are typically good for two years. Even with natural collagen renewal, the therapy causes the skin to age. The procedure focused on the brow, neck, and jawline. The vast majority of these procedures are FDA-approved and fully safe. Consult your dermatologist to find out which anti-aging therapies are right for you!

This is my last card of 2k15. it is exactly 11:30 and Sara is crying right now as she writes this. I just want to let all of you know, that no matter the hardships in life you had this year, you guys will get more next year, but you will overcome them. Cause life goes on. I just want to thank everyone for making me smile, making me laugh, and chewing me up through this year. You guys were the ones that made me want to keep the high spirit in these lovely communities. I also want to thank Vingle in general, because with out this app, I would have never dreamed of discovering KPop, wished to go to ALL. OVER. ASIA. I would have never imagined to meet someone -not because if their fame, but of the way they are-, or wished, worked and dreamed so hard of being a trainee. I would have never imagined a way to stop doing rapping verses in the corner of my room, and actually taking my skills into actions. All of you guys have encouraged me in so many ways, to not only stand up for what I like, but to be myself, and to not worry if I don't necessarily fit in a certain stereotype. I laughed, I cried, and i suffered. Alot. But in the end, I made it through. And I'm certain all of you did too. Thank you everyone, for, legit, everything. I have made more experiences here with people who like what I like, than litterally anywhere. I have always been the happy, optimistic, cheerful Sara. But you guys -all of you- gave me something that I will always remember to do: Help, Share, Laugh, Live, Hope, and Dream. All of you guys have taught me, that people have more fun when they share, or when they do anything withot expecting something in return. Thank you. Thank you Vingle. Thank you KPop. Thank you Everyone. I have also noticed that almost every band I like, has taught me something. GOT7: You don't have to pretend to be someone else. More people enjoy being with you if you are who you are. BTS: Friendship, hard work, fun and peace can get you a really long way. BigBang: Never forget to be yourself. People will always be there to judge, you just do you. EXO: Don't trust too easily, some things aren't always what they seem. SHINee: Have fun. I could literally go on and on -VIXX reference right there- but I'll probably bore you. I hope many happy things come to your 2k16. You guys have no idea how damn valuable you all have been to me. Just a small special thanks to: @Emealia for tagging me into those things you always do, they made me smile when I needed them c: And for being a blessing when the fandoms are in tough times. @thePinkPrincess for welcoming me and explaining things when I needed or didn't understand, and just for being plain AWESOME. and at @kpopandkimchi , for explaining all about KPop, Kdramas, or anything Korean related and keeping us updated on things XD.

Hyaluronic Acid - The Natural Skin Plumping Sugar
Despite its tough pronunciation and even more complicated spelling; hyaluronic acid is an important part of your daily skin care routine. It's widely used in serums, sheet masks, and moisturisers. This is because HA, a naturally occurring molecule in the skin, binds to water and plumps the face, giving it a dewy, glowing appearance. It's clear that word of its benefits has spread, as it's one of the most sought-after ingredients in skin-care products. Aside from increasing skin moisture levels, hyaluronic acid serves other functions. What is hyaluronic acid, exactly? Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule in the skin that helps water bind to collagen, keeping it in place and giving the skin a plumper, dewier, and more hydrated appearance. Essentially, hyaluronic acid improves skin hydration, which helps to maintain the skin's youthful, full, and bouncy appearance. Collagen in our dermis determines the structure of our skin. Natural hyaluronic acid is covalently linked to water molecules on one side and collagen on the other, providing plumpness to the skin. What is hyaluronic acid's function? As we age, our collagen and hyaluronic acid levels gradually decline, causing our skin to become increasingly dry. Furthermore, winter heaters, specific skin care products, and underlying skin disorders can cause microscopic tears in the protective skin barrier, allowing water to escape. As a result, implementing a customised skin care regimen that includes moisturising products could be extremely beneficial. Hyaluronic acid, glycerin, colloidal oatmeal, urea, propylene glycol, and sorbitol are humectants, which draw water to the skin to hydrate it. These chemicals can be found in a variety of products, such as moisturisers, eye creams, and serums. The use of HA-containing products tightens the skin around the eyes, increases moisture to reduce puffiness, and softens fine wrinkles throughout the face. Hyaluronic acid is effective when applied topically due to its ease of penetration. Our skin is the largest organ in the body, soaking up up to 60% of the nutrients applied to it. Furthermore, the lightweight, fluid nature of hyaluronic acid, as well as its ability to retain moisture from the environment and deeper dermis to completely hydrate the skin, are benefits. Who should benefit from hyaluronic acid? All skin types benefit from hyaluronic acid. It is non-irritating in general and does not aggravate acne, rosacea, or allergic skin conditions. However, there is a very small chance of experiencing any negative consequences. Individuals with dry and/or older skin will benefit the most from the application of hyaluronic acid. Because our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid as we age, people in their forties and fifties will benefit the most from applying it topically. Despite the fact that the term "acid" appears in the term of hyaluronic acid, those with sensitive skin should not be worried; it is completely safe for everyone. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in our bodies, there are no known side effects from using it. If you have an allergic reaction to it or a product that contains it, contact your dermatologist immediately; the reaction could be caused by another active or inactive ingredient. Injectable Hyaluronic Acid Injections of hyaluronic acid are also available. Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance found in dermal fillers that attracts water after injection to replenish volume and restore lost structure. This helps to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles while also reducing the overall sunken or drooping appearance of the face. These dermal fillers can be used to treat nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheek augmentation, chin augmentation, undereyes, lips, and back of the hands, among other things. Because the quality of fillers varies, it's critical to consult with your dermatologist about your options to ensure you get the best one for you. A cosmetic surgeon compares different types of hyaluronic acid fillers to different types of paintbrushes. They all contain the same component, but the density, lift-ability, and durability of the molecules vary depending on their size and arrangement. Additionally, it is reversible. Because it is injected into your face, it is not permanent. Because hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are reversible, your dermatologist can dissolve the filler quickly using the enzyme hyaluronidase if you are dissatisfied with the results or if a blood artery is blocked during the injection process. The enzyme works quickly; the substance dissolves quickly and is completely destroyed within 24 to 48 hours. Individuals who are allergic to bees, on the other hand, should proceed with caution — and consult a dermatologist — before attempting hyaluronidase-based therapy because the enzyme is found in bee venom. Hyaluronic acid fillers, on the other hand, are not for everyone. Except for pregnant women, the vast majority of people can benefit from hyaluronic acid fillers. Pregnancy and fillers have not been thoroughly studied, but dermatologists generally avoid injecting pregnant women due to uncertainty. Furthermore, if you have a current skin infection, you should avoid these fillers. First, treat the infection, and then return to your appointment once your dermatologist has given you the all-clear. If you're thinking about using hyaluronic fillers, there are a few minor risks to be aware of. Bruising and swelling are the most common side effects of any injectable treatment. The good news is that these shortfalls will only last a short time. Tenderness should subside within a few days. To reduce the risk of bruising, blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and red wine should be avoided for about a week before treatment. Furthermore, arnica and bromelain may aid in the reduction of swelling and bruising.
5 Reasons to Give Up Shampoo
The "no poo" movement has gained popularity, which piqued my interest. People are abandoning shampoo bottles in favour of brushes and talc. Those who have long, beautiful hair claim that natural hair is healthier for you and the environment, and that it doesn't require much maintenance to look good. I experimented with going without shampoo for a few days to see how it felt. Here are five more reasons why you should get rid of your poo: 1. Avoid using chemicals. Many of the ingredients on shampoo and conditioner labels that are difficult to read are hazardous. Diethyl phthalate (DEP) is a possible carcinogen and hormone disruptor, but it aids in the retention of scent in hair products. Although sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) causes shampoo to foam, it can irritate your skin and even cause cancer, so you should avoid using it. Parabens can help your body stay fresh, but they've also been found in breast cancer tumours. 2. Reduce the amount of water used. You use less water when you don't wash your hair every day, which helps the environment. On days when I don't wash my hair, it works for me. I only need a quick sprinkling from the tub faucet. If you colour your hair, limiting the amount of water it comes into contact with is beneficial. The heat and minerals in your shower water can cause it to lose its colour. Water alone can cause up to 80% of the colour to fade. 3. Make the best possible use of your time. It takes a long time to get ready in the morning. You should wash your hair less frequently if you want to have more time to do other healthy things like go for a morning run or sleep in. You can be more adaptable if you know how to keep your hair clean for longer periods of time. Do not wash your hands before or after working out. For example, don't wash before or after a workout in the afternoon. 4. Improve the health of your hair. Some people go months without washing their hair. They claim that their hair eventually stops producing sebum, which is a type of oil produced on the scalp. The end result is shiny, moist, and healthy hair that isn't greasy at all. Sebum is beneficial to your hair because it promotes hair growth. Because they protect your hair, scalp oils are nature's moisturiser. However, no studies have been conducted to demonstrate that sebum operates on a supply and demand basis. What you do when you remove oils is more of an external thing. I'm not aware of any evidence that this can alter the way the body functions. 5. Get to know your hair. Finally, I was able to go two weeks without washing my hair, which was beneficial to me. My scalp health improved after a summer of not washing my hair frequently. I also learned a lot about my hair and let go of my own strict rules about when to wash it. I didn't have to wash my hair at all during the week.
Boys Over Flowers 2!
So, apparently, our BOF 2 dreams come true on APRIL 1, 2013.. Here's an article from dramafever: " Every Korean drama fan’s dream came true on April 1st, 2013, as it was announced that Boys Over Flowers, the most popular and therefore best drama of all time, was reuniting the entire cast for Boys Over Flowers 2. The news came as a shock to many netizens, who were caught completely off guard. DramaFever sources were the first to break the story, including surprising plot elements, production stills and the secret addition of Dakota Fanning to the cast of the much-anticipated sequel. Boys Over Flowers 2 picks up right where the first series left off, with Jan Di (Koo Hye Sun) answering Jun Pyo’s (Lee Min Ho) proposal with a huge “yes!” But trouble is waiting for the couple, as a rival CEO (played with over-the-top relish by Kpop superstar PSY) attempts a corporate takeover of Jun Pyo’s mighty Shinhwa Group. To capitalize on the popularity of the Gangnam Style phenomenon, PSY raps all of his lines, and wacky musical numbers frequently interrupt the story. For Jan Di, preparing a high society wedding turns out to be much more complicated than anything in med school, and she enlists star wedding planner Manu Jeol for help. But once Manu Jeol (played by Dakota Fanning in her first Kdrama role) sets her eyes on Jun Pyo, she declares him “the most beautiful man in the world” and determines to steal him away. Fanning’s scenes were shot in secret during the actress’s recent trip to South Korea, where Lee Min Ho personally taught her to speak Korean. While Jan Di completely in the dark over Manu Jeol’s obsession with Jun Pyo, she makes her move. She advises him to come with her on a ”practice honeymoon” to Jeju Island, telling him it’s the best way to ensure a long, happy marriage. Jun Pyo agrees, never suspecting that Manu has ulterior motives. But just as Manu and Jun Pyo are about to board the plane, the two are discovered by Jan Di’s best friend, Chu Ga Eul (Kim So Eun). Chu Ga Eul sees right through Manu Jeol, and physically attacks her in a surprisingly violent scene. Boys Over Flowers 2 also will reunite viewers with the rest of F4, who are called in to help with the wedding. Sculptor So Yi Jung (Kim Bum), after sustaining a hand injury in Boys Over Flowers 1, can only sculpt soft things, and in a touching scene folds hundreds of napkins into swans for the wedding. Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong), still in love with Jan Di, agrees to write the music to which she’ll walk down the aisle. But in a stunning twist, right before the wedding ceremony, he ends up falling for the disgraced wedding planner Manu Jeol. The two decide to also get married on the spot, since everyone they know is there anyway. The wedding scene will warm every viewer’s heart as Jun Pyo, Jan Di, Ji Hoo and Manu Jeol bust into the church and strut down the aisle, echoing the famous scene in Boys Over Flowers. Boys Over Flowers 2 just wrapped shooting in extreme secrecy, and is set to air April 1st, 2015." hahahahaha.. pretty mean! Almost got me!! Happy April Fools!
Talking Body Chapter 10 [+18] *possible trigger alert*
*This chapter may contains triggers to some readers. Please take caution when reading. You have been warned. * Chapter Ten A knock on the door alerted Jungkook within his studio. He turned in his chair to see Yoongi peeking his head in. Jungkook waved him in and turned to save his work before giving Yoongi his full attention. “Did you find anything?” Jungkook asked breaking the silence. Yoongi handed him a flash drive. “I found what I could, but not the year pervious to meeting Ji Su.” Jungkook took the flash driver and plugged into his computer. “You do know she is bound to find out that you are searching about her ex.” Yoongi stated. “I know but I know there is something that she is hiding, and I want to know what. Plus, she is too stubborn to even ask for help.” Jungkook clicked on the files while he spoke. He chose to do something of his own investigation to help Ji Su. He started this after she told him she want to put a pause on their relationship. That was a week ago. Jungkook opened the first file that had who Jae was before he meet Ji Su. When he opened it, Jungkook read on who this man was. Apparently, Jae was a Koran Japanese. His father was a Korean chaebol whose business was mainly in Japan. His mother was the daughter of a Japanese Yakuza boss. Jae spent most of his time in Japan until a year before he meet Ji Su. There wasn’t mush else besides a few photos and what his profession was. “When I was looking for information about him and I came across his photos, I realized something. That photo there,” Yoongi stood behind Jungkook with his finger pointing to the photo on the left. “I remember meeting him and he did not look like that. He received plastic sugary. For what I don’t know. I looked to see way but there was nothing.” Jungkook looked closely at both photos. He one on the left was before and the one on the right was the current photo. There was a possibility of plastic surgery, but something didn’t sit right with Jungkook. Before he could look further into it another knock singled another visitor. Jungkook quickly closed out and Yoongi went to his couch. The door opened and Namjoon came in. He look at both Jungkook and Yoongi as if they were hiding something. Which they did, they just didn’t want to share. “I hope you weren’t watching porn.” Was Namjoon’s way of saying hi. Yoongi glanced at Jungkook with disgust. “No that is you not me.” Yoongi stated. “Do you need something?” “The others and I are heading to the store to grab the last few things before tomorrow’s camping trip.” Namjoon said then looked at Jungkook. “Is there anything you guys need anything?” Jungkook looked at Yoongi who looked back. “Nope if we do we do, we’ll stop at the store on our way back home.” Jungkook told Namjoon. Namjoon continued to stare at both. He knew something was up but wasn’t going to pry it out of them. He gave them a salute and left Jungkook’s studio. Yoongi stood up and headed to the door. “Far warning, the next two flies please keep an open mind. You have to remember, Ji Su loved this man no matter the cost. I will be back an hour and we can get some drinks before heading home.” Yoongi walked out closing the door behind him. Jungkook closed out of Jae’s profile. And opened up the other flies. The first one labeled with the date 02/18. Taking a deep breath Jungkook clicked on it. There were two documents, one being a police report and other a hospital report. Clicking on the police report, Jungkook’s heart sank a little. The report read: On February 18th there was a call about a noise complaint in apartment 506. The caller believed the female resident was being hit by the male partner. When police arrived, the male stated nothing happened and that he and the female partner was having a light argument. However, one officer noticed marking around the females neck. Medical was called and the female was transported for further investigation. The male was take in being charged for domestic abuse. Jungkook minimized the police report and clicking on the hospital labeled with the same date. When he began to read, he could not believe what he was reading. Ji Su was being choked and when she was asked what happened she just told the police and the doctors that he was upset about her being late and nothing really happened. She that night didn’t process charges. He didn’t understand why she didn’t, but what Yoongi said before he left. She loved him no matter what it was the cost. Taking a deep breath, he moved on to the next folder labels 03/10. Without hesitation, Jungkook opened it and saw the similar setup like that last one. From there he clicked on the police report. Police were called to apartment 506 by the resident’s sister. The sister stated over the phone that her sister was in a pool of her own blood. The sister didn’t give anymore information just a plea to hurry and save her sister. When Police and Medical arrived on scene the female was laying in the glass coffee table with blood all around her. Medical acted quickly and took her straight to the hospital. The sister went with them promising to talk to the police at the hospital. CSI was called and investigated the apartment. The kitchen looked like a bomb went through it. Pots and pan with food everywhere. Pregnancy tests scattered throughout the kitchen. The most damage was the coffee table as if the female was thrown on top of it. There was an object that is believed to be a fetus. The male in question was nowhere to be found on scene. Jungkook rubbed his face in disbelief that this happened. There was no markings on the even happening on her body. However, would he have noticed with his mind full of lust and passion for her? Plus, she was pregnant! Shaking his head, Jungkook continued to read the follow up of the report days later stating that the male in question was not charged due to the female in a coma. His lawyer stepped in, and his father paid a huge sum of money to sweep this under the rug. The damn cops were bribed with money to forget this ever happen. Furious, Jungkook closed out and went to the medical report. Female name Kim Ji Su. Age: 25. Came in unconscious and blood all over. Doctor on call came in and investigated her body. There were lacerations all over her back, a minor burn on the left arm, a minor head injury. When they looked further to figure out way so much blood, they found out she had a miscarriage. She was place in a medical induce coma to decrease the swelling. The lacerations and burn would leave little scaring. Jungkook could not believe she went through all that and never once said anything. Sure, she told him about her rape eight years ago, but this was worse. She was abused by the man she believed she was in love with. A man that showed her security and a stable life to live. The more he read and looked at Jae’s photos he started to believe in his theory he shared with Ji Su back in Jeju. That Jae could be the man that raped her all those years ago. 1) He didn’t meet her until a year later 2) He looks different 3) He tried to kill her. Twice Frustrated, Jungkook closed out of all the files and unplugged the flash drive. He turned all his computers off and packed his bag. He was going to need a drink and maybe Yoongi would be in the mood to discuss when he just learned. He knew one thing and that was Yoongi knew who Ji Su was before Jungkook. ~*~*~*~*~ Jungkook and Yoongi were at one the food tents a block away from the apartment. They were finishing the second bottle of Soju. Jungkook poured another glass and handed it to Yoongi. This was a sign to show repeat to those older than you. “What was she like, Ji Su?” Jungkook asked Yoongi. He was curious on who she was before. Yoongi took he glass and down his Soju. “She is a great listener, would listen to my mixes and she loved to party. She wasn’t a party animal. Ji Su and Mi Sun are opposite when it comes to parties. However, it all changed when Ji Su was with Jae.” Yoongi put his glass down and Jungkook refilled it. “She was quiet, stood by him and said little. Mi Sun was worried about her, and Ji Su’s grandmothers’ health was going downhill. Just try and imagine Mi Sun. Believe or not, Mi Sun is just like Jin in that aspect worried about her family.” Yoongi drank his liquid and raised his hands to order a third bottle. Jungkook processed what he learned. There was so much of Ji Su that he didn’t know. He should be asking her, but a part of him wasn’t sure if she would answer him. “Do you think Jae has something to do with what happen to her in college?” Jungkook asked when the third bottle of Soju arrived. Both men thanked the elderly lady who smiled at them commenting how handsome they were. Both thanked her while Jungkook finished the second bottle and opening the third one. “After looking back on his past and seeing the difference in photos, there is a possibility.” Yoongi took his glass once again and down the alcohol. “I never did ask how you were able find all of this information.” Jungkook asked downing the contents of his glass. Yoongi smirked bring his glass to his lips.” Let’s just say I was really good with looking for someone during my time in the service.” “So, you were a ‘programmer’ in a way.” Jungkook leaned back in his chair bring his glass to his lips. “You could say that.” Taking the soju bottle filling his glass Yoongi asked, “I never did ask you what do you gain from learning about what I found?” He glanced up at Jungkook. Putting his glass down Jungkook and sighed. “I for the must part want to understand. There is something that she is hiding from me and as much I want to ask and push her into telling me, I won’t. I want her to tell me, but I have a feeling that she wont until she takes care of it. If that is the case, it may kill her.” Yoongi took the bottle again, this time filling Jungkook’s to the rim. “I don’t think it will kill her, maybe hurt her. Ji Su is a fighter.” Jungkook took his glass and downed the contents only for Yoongi to fill it up once more. “I have seen a change in her. Whatever you did she is almost to her old self.” Yoongi confessed and clinked his glass with Jungkook. Filling their glasses once more the finishing the bottle. Yoongi go up and to pay while Jungkook gathered his things. When he stood up, he felt liquid on his back when he turned around to see what the hell happened, he saw a guy his size but built bigger. This guy looked mad and Jungkook could only guess that he was the one that pissed him off. “Sorry man didn’t see you there.” Jungkook apologized. The guy glared at him. “Do you know how expensive this suit is?” Jungkook just closed his eyes not wanting to deal with this man. “Did you just close your eyes and sigh?!” when Jungkook opened his eyes he didn’t have time to dodge the mans fist. Jungkook fell back against the table he was at. He wiped his lips knowing that he was bleeding. Jungkook stood back up. “Look man I am sorry got ruining your suit. I am sure if you tell me how much the dry cleaning would be I will pay for it.” He tried to reason with this man. The man again swung his fist like a mad man. Jungkook was able to doge some but fell back when the man landed a blow to his gut. Apparently, this man wasn’t in the mood to settle things with words. When the mans fist stopped, Jungkook stood up and noticed Yoongi next to him. “You good?” Yoongi asked and Jungkook nodded. “If he hits you again just hit him back.” As soon Yoongi said that the man swung once more and this time Jungkook land hit knocking the man flat on the ground. Red and blue lights lit up the food tent. ~*~*~*~*~ Dawn was breaking through when Yoongi and Jungkook made it home. When the arrived on their floor the two men walked down the hall when a door opened and closed. Jungkook looked up to see Mi Sun and Ji Su in workout gear. Ji Su had her nose in her phone. Mi Sun went up to her and said something. Ji Su looked up to see Jungkook and Yoongi. She looked back down and the backup. Looking eyes with Jungkook. Yoongi mumbled that he would meet him inside when Mi Sun walked by leaving Jungkook and Ji Su alone in the hallway. A few minutes went by, and Ji Su was standing in from of him. Raising her hand barley touching him, “What happened?” She whispered. “Just a little fight over a simple spill.” He joked leaning into her touch. “Did you get this cleaned?” she brush a finger across his cheek where a cut was at. He hissed and Ji Su yanked her hand back to her chest. “Sorry.” She whispered. “Its fine love just forgot it was there.” He smirked when he saw her cheeks turned a shade of pink. “I should go. Getting a run in before we leave for the camping trip.” She stepped back. “And I should go and finish packing.” He stepped closer to her. “I still miss you.” He whispered and kissed her cheek before walking into his apartment. He wasted no time to pack and shower before it was time to leave. He took everything down to the parking garage to load up his bag. Ji Su was there on the phone and pacing. Before he could walk up to her to ask what was going on, everyone else showed up to put their belongs in the one or the other vehicles. Sighing, Jungkook climbed into the vehicle that he placed his things in and closed his eyes. He was still awake just wanting to rest his eyes. He felt the SUV move as everyone entered and settled themselves in the seats. He was barley awake to hear mumbles asking if he was asleep. He smirked when he heard Ji Su state that he was just resting his eyes. ~*~*~*~*~ Authors note: Finally, chapter 10 is done. I will admit that this chapter was hard to write. With information about Ji Su needed to be shared and I chose Chapter 10 to do that. However, I struggle to write it out to have it flow. I really hope that the information that I shared flows nicely and you are able to understand it. I want to thank you all for your patience’s while I was with family last week. With my brother graduating and my school job ending for the year it was crazy busy. So, thank you. Chapter 11 will be post sometime this coming week and as always thank you for your support.

8 Habits That Cause Premature Wrinkles And Skin Aging
People of all ages have beautiful skin. But as time goes on, the glow of your skin can fade. Cut back on these habits that can make your skin look older before it's ready. 1. You can get dark circles and fine lines if you keep rubbing your eyes all the time. People get under-eye bags when the muscles around their eyes weaken as they get older. If you keep rubbing your eyes, it will be fine. It won't have any long-term effects. Continuous eye rubbing can cause an issue by increasing inflammation in the area. Keeping your eyes rubbed all the time can make the lines around your eyes look worse. I often see this as a problem for people with eczema, who may rub their eyes too much because they are itchy and hurt. Some people call them Dennie-Morgan lines because they look like a black eye when they get them. That's not all. It can darken the skin around the eyes if you pull, tug, and rub on the skin there. Determine what is making you rub your eyes. You should see an allergist to figure out what's causing your eyes to itch and to treat your symptoms. A dermatologist can help you figure out what kind of treatment is best for your eczema. 2. Not getting enough sleep hurts your skin's ability to grow new, healthy skin. A good night's sleep is important for energy, concentration, and having a good complexion. At night, the skin is in a state of renewal, and it starts to grow new skin. When you don't get enough sleep, it can show on your face. A study of 60 women published in Clinical and Experimental Dermatology in January 2015 found that women who didn't get enough sleep, which was defined as five hours or less, had more signs of ageing, a weaker skin barrier, and less satisfaction with their looks. You can get enough sleep if you follow the National Sleep Foundation's four tips: Every day, go to bed and wake up at the same time. This will help your body get used to the same times. Set up your bedroom in a dark, cool, and quiet way. Finish your meal at least two to three hours before going to sleep. If you drink a lot of caffeine in the afternoon, you should cut back a lot. 3. It can be hard to get a clean line when you use a straw. Were you born with a straw? It may keep your teeth from getting stained, but it can also make your mouth look older. This is a sign that your skin is getting older. There are muscles in the area around your lips when you drink from a straw. There is a better chance of getting that crease in the skin if we work those muscles more. It's the same reason that people who smoke get wrinkles around the mouth, like they do. To find the lines, you can keep your lips pursed over and over again. The best way to avoid straws is to not use them at all. 4. When you are stressed, cortisol is released, which causes collagen to break down. Whenever we are stressed, we feel it in every part of our bodies. Your skin is part of this. If you're always worried or can't sleep, your body is always making stress hormones, which can make you look older than you should. Inflammation and sagging skin are both caused by the stress hormone cortisol, which also breaks down collagen. Stress, because of the increased inflammation, has been shown to speed up the ageing process in studies. Stress can be reduced primarily by making changes to your lifestyle, like eating well, getting enough sleep, and practising meditation. All of these things have a big impact on the way your body and face look as you get older. Find out what truly relaxes you and do it often. 5. Using makeup to protect your skin from the sun exposes your skin to UV rays. SPF is the best way to keep your skin from getting older before it should. Ultraviolet (UV) light exposure caused about 80% of the visible signs of ageing on the face, like wrinkles and changes in pigmentation. You may not be protecting your skin from harmful UV rays if you only use makeup that has SPF in it. It blocks UVB rays but not UVA rays, which cause fine lines and brown spots. Most makeup blocks UVB but not UVA. As a bonus, to get the sunscreen benefit, you'd have to put on a lot of make-up. Makeup will add extra protection to sunscreen, but it's likely not enough on its own. Before you put on your makeup, put on a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen or moisturiser. Broad-spectrum means that the product will protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays, which can make your skin age. As well as their makeup, people need SPF to keep them safe. SPF 30 is a good level of protection for most people. 6. Sun damage can happen to your neck and hands if you don't pay attention. Ultraviolet light is the single most important thing you can do to keep from getting older. Even if you use sunscreen every day, you might forget about your neck and hands. This might be why they're the first places to show your age. Previous research found that women with visible veins and wrinkles on the hands were perceived to be older than their peers with plumper hands, even if they were the same age. In time, we lose some of our ability to move freely. The hands lose volume and fat, which makes the skin clear and wrinkled. Your skin kind of thins out, so your hands don't look as big. In this picture, you can see the veins a little better. They look wrinkly. As a result of long-term sun exposure, the skin on the neck can turn dark and look older. In the same way, you can try to avoid harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. If you must go outside, it's the easiest thing to do is find shade and wear a hat with a brim and sunscreen. She says that some of her patients wear gloves that protect their hands from the sun when they drive. 7. If You Don't Wear Sunglasses, You Risk Damage to Your Eyes and the Skin Around them. As we've said, UV rays can damage the eyelid, cornea, lens, and retina. Sunglasses protect the eyes from these rays, which can also damage the skin around the eyes. These movements like squinting, laughing, and frowning can make your face look older over time. The more you use your muscles to make these movements, the more wrinkles and lines will show up when your face is at rest. Even in the dead of winter, you should wear sunglasses. The more protection you have, the better off you will be. Look for a pair that says 100% protection against both UVA and UVB or 100% protection against UV 400 on the package. 8. Soap can make wrinkles worse. Despite what your grandparents say, soap bars are often full of harsh detergents that strip the skin of its natural oils, making it dry and flaky. Even though dry skin doesn't cause wrinkles on its own, it does make them easier to see. There are things that can cause allergies and rashes on your skin when you have dry skin. These things are things like bacteria and viruses. Because your skin's barrier is weaker when it is dry, this is the reason why. A lot of people have trouble with their skin, so they have to be careful with the soap they use. If you have sensitive skin, eczema, or rosacea, then yes, the soap you use will have an effect on how your skin looks and feels. You should use a cleanser that is hydrating to clean your face. You should look for the words gentle and moisturising on the package. Avoid using deodorant soap or products that could dry out your skin, like alcohol, fragrance, retinoids, or alpha hydroxy acid. After you wash your face, apply a moisturiser with antioxidants like vitamin C.
Stop Washing Your Face in The Shower - Here's Why.
Women with sensitive skin, acne prone skin, or dry skin have probably heard a common refrain from their expert friends and family about how their shower time could be exacerbating their problems. It's such a common refrain in the skincare world that some people question whether you should even shower daily — for reasons other than the potential harm to your face. What kind of shower is best for your facial skin? Long or short? Is it better to bathe with cold or warm water? The truth is that the verdict on showers and their benefits for the skin on your face isn't all that clear, and rather than accepting one opinion as "gospel," you should consider your own skin needs and how showering may help or stop you from getting your face what it needs in order to glow. What Happens to Your Skin in a Shower? The question of what showering does to your skin is perhaps the most important information in this discussion — and there are already some disagreements. However, the general consensus is that showering daily can have a few negative effects on your skin and the skin on your face. In the worst-case scenario, daily showering can exacerbate skin problems such as dry skin, itching, cracking, and bacterial overgrowth. Showering can help reduce skin bacteria, which is sometimes beneficial — but not always. While it may come as a surprise, bacteria are not all bad. In fact, bacteria and the health of your skin have a close relationship. Bacteria are necessary for the health of your skin. For example, in order for your immune system to function properly, it must be exposed to microorganisms on a regular basis. Keeping your skin clean and free of dirt and bacteria does not make you healthier; instead, it prevents your immune system from properly training its antibodies for future encounters. As a result, the antibacterial soaps that many people use in showers and hand scrubbing situations may kill off the important 'should be here' bacteria. When this happens, you're merely making room for more dangerous bacteria to colonise. And this is a major concern for people who take hot showers frequently, because excessive showering can cause your skin to dry and crack over time, allowing these more dangerous bacteria to enter your body beneath the skin barrier. This can lead to major issues, infections, and problems in the future. Is it bad to wash your face while you shower? Despite all of our warnings, there are still plenty of reasons to take our advice with a grain of salt. While a celebrity dermatologist may recommend you not to wash your face during your shower routine, the reality is that there is very little evidence to suggest any danger to your face in particular. We couldn't find any studies that suggested that washing your face in the shower could cause an increase in acne, wrinkles, dryness, or skin conditions like rosacea or eczema. The wrong products, many of which may be in your shower, are what will cause your skin problems. For example, the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD) recommends avoiding alcohol and abrasive cleaners, as well as sponges, washcloths and mesh cleaning tools that can irritate your skin. That means that many of the tools you use to wash your body (and may have in your shower) aren't good for your facial skin. And, after a thorough body scrub, remember not to scrub too hard on your face. Cleansers should be applied with your fingertips, and the cleanser should be removed with the same care. And, as the AAD points out, there's the issue of water temperature, which they recommend for face washing be "lukewarm." This is likely unhappy news if you enjoy hot or cold showers. Is water temperature important? You're probably wondering, "Why the big deal about hot water?" What about saunas, steam rooms and hot towels? "What exactly is it about my shower water that is so bad for my face?" As it turns out, there's a lot that can go wrong with it. Excessively hot water has been linked to an increased risk of irritation and inflammation of the skin on your face, according to research. As far as we're concerned, this does not imply that taking a shower is bad for your face. It does, however, imply that your face-specific routine may be best staged outside of the shower, where you can control temperature, reduce the risk of injury due to water temperature fluctuations, and generally do better work for your skin health. You may be wondering about the benefits of steam and whether they mitigate the risk of irritation. Steam and hot water have numerous benefits for your skin — and the things that live in your skin. Steam can loosen and soften buildup, making blackheads and other solid blemishes easier to remove from your pores. Steaming your skin can also provide additional benefits for serums and moisturisers later on. Topical products can often be better accepted by your skin by opening up your pores and making your skin more permeable. And, contrary to popular belief, steam is beneficial to your skin's relative moisture levels. It can not only help you add water to your individual skin cells, but it can also help make subsequent products like moisturisers and serums more effective. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, steam increases blood flow in your skin's blood vessels, which can lead to increased collagen production and, eventually, plump and firm skin. All of this being said, it is recommended that you use a hot towel or bowl rather than a shower, as this gives you more control over the time and level of contact water has with your face, as well as the ability to adjust the temperature. These things are important for people who have rosacea and redness, as well as those who have broken capillaries. Women with sensitive skin should exercise caution as well, as steaming can aggravate inflammatory conditions (which means people with eczema should also be wary). When You Should Wash Your Face Instead So, the shower is off, and we both agree on that. So, where do you wash your face? When, where, and why? You should wash your face twice a day, plus more if you get sweaty, as you might after exercise or time in the sun. In most cases, washing once in the morning and once at night is sufficient. According to what we can tell, you're fine to do one of those washes right after a shower — lukewarm water and a non-abrasive, non-alcoholic cleanser are the gentle combination you'll need. Just remember to be a little gentler than you would be with your back, legs, or feet. By the way, now is the ideal time to apply a moisturiser. Hot showers (especially long ones) can dry out your skin, and for people with psoriasis and other skin issues, they can aggravate existing problems. The best time to replenish lost moisture and protect yourself for the day ahead is after your post-shower face wash.
