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.
6 Easy Ways To A Smooth Neck
Because the skin on your neck is some of the thinnest on your body, it is also one of the first places to show signs of ageing. Here are six ways to make your neck look younger and address everything from sun damage to sagging on this delicate area. 1. WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERY SINGLE DAY. Your dermatologist will agree that a nickel-sized amount of sunscreen applied to your neck and chest every day will help prevent collagen breakdown and the formation of sunspots. Don't forget to massage the sides and back of your neck. 2. MAINTAIN YOUR SKIN'S MOISTURIZATION. Again, the skin on your neck is thinner and has fewer oil glands than the rest of your body, so keeping the area hydrated is essential for a smoother overall texture. Look for peptide-containing creams (which can help stimulate new collagen growth) and apply them in gentle, upward strokes from your chest to your jawline. 3. RECLAIM YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP. Do you always wake up with pillow lines on the side of your neck? Apply one of these silicone patches before going to bed to keep your skin from crinkling while you sleep. You'll wake up with a smoother neck and less chance of further damage. 4. FOCUS ON CORRECT POSTURE. The amount of time we spend looking down at our phones and screens has resulted in what we now refer to as "tech neck." The simplest solution would be to limit screen time entirely, but more realistically, you should keep everything as close to eye level as possible to avoid unnecessary wrinkling. 5. GIVE LASER TREATMENTS A GO AHEAD. Still have fine lines on your neck? Fraxel lasers, stimulate your body's natural repair process to promote collagen growth. Fraxel can also be used to treat any dark spots or broken capillaries in the area, giving you a more even complexion. 6. ULTRASOUND TREATMENT FOR SERIOUS REPAIR. Ultherapy or Ultracel is your best non-surgical option for deeper, more stubborn lines and sagging. The FDA-approved treatment uses heat generated by focused sonic waves to penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. Take note that the effect is gradual, and most patients notice a lifting effect three to six months after the initial treatment, so be patient.
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.

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.
Let's Talk About Ddeok!
Rice cakes are probably my favorite thing, EVER. In Korea, they come in all shapes and sizes. They're sweet or covered in hot sauce, served plain, or stuffed with goodness. They're amazing. In the photo above you can see long skinny ones, some shaped like figure 8s, and some stuffed with cheese! Rice cakes in Korea are called ddeok or 떡. (all photos are mine^^) This is chicken and ddeok in a cup! The chicken and ddeok and fried up in a sweet and spicy sauce. The outside of the ddeok is a little crispy but the inside is still super soft and chewy! This is dango! This is a more Japanese take on ddeok but you can still find it in Korea! Traditional Korean version of this is grilled ddeok. It's just a few pieces of rice cake on a stick and placed on a grill to make them crispy and warm. This is bingsu! An amaaaazing Korean dessert that comes in all different flavors. The more traditional flavors of bingsu like patbinsu (red bean) usually comes with ddeok on top! In this case, the ddeok is rolled in misugaru which is a powdered grain a lot of Koreans use in lattes or nutritional drinks :) This is ddeokbokki! The actual love of my life. Ddeokbokki is a ton of rice cakes thrown into some super spicy delicious sauce with fish cake, onion, and usually a hard boiled egg. You can get this as street food or in nearly any Korean restaurant you pop into :) Also, @carenabobo, here are the fish on a stick (also called oh-deng) that I think you were talking about^^ Ddeok is colorful, tasty, and nutritious! Never pass down an opportunity to munch on some^^

9 Effective Skincare Tips For Teenagers With Acne
A pimple develops when the pores of the skin become clogged with sebum; a type of oil that normally lubricates the skin and hair. Acne is common during puberty, when hormones kick in and the skin produces an abnormally high amount of sebum. Because the forehead, nose, and chin contain so many oil-producing glands, this area, dubbed the T-zone, is the most prone to pimples. Here are a few pointers to help you avoid and treat breakouts quickly: Wash your face twice daily with warm water and a gentle acne-specific cleanser (no more). Massage your face gently in circular motions. No scrubbing is required. Excessive washing and scrubbing can irritate the skin. After cleansing, apply a low-strength benzoyl peroxide lotion. Never squeeze your pimples. It's tempting, but here are some reasons why you should avoid it: Pimple popping can result in the push of infected material deeper into the skin, causing swelling, redness, and acne scarring. If you notice a pimple developing prior to a significant event, such as a wedding, a dermatologist can frequently treat it with minimal scarring or infection. Don't touch your face or lean your face against objects that collect sebum and skin residue, such as your phone. By touching your face, you can spread bacteria and cause inflamed and irritated pores. Wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as your acne treatment creams or makeup, to keep bacteria at bay. Clean your pair of glasses or sunglasses to avoid clogging the pores around your eyes and nose with oil. Avoid tight fitting clothes if you have acne on your body. They obstruct the skin's ability to breathe and may irritate it. On scarves, headbands, and caps, dirt and oil can also accumulate. Remove your makeup before going to bed. When shopping for makeup, look for brands that list "non-comedogenic" or "non-acnegenic" on the label. Remove any old makeup that has a different smell or appearance than the day you purchased it. Keep your hair clean and away from your face to avoid clogging your pores with dirt and oil. Never skip sunscreen. While a tan may appear to conceal acne, this is only temporary. A tan may aggravate your acne rather than help it. Additionally, tanning wreaks havoc on the skin, causing wrinkles and increasing your risk of developing skin cancer. Consult a dermatologist if you are concerned about acne. Dermatologists offer a variety of acne treatment options for acne scar prevention and treatment. A dermatologist can assist you in determining the most effective treatment method for you and provide you with a wealth of useful advice on how to manage acne and care for your particular skin type.
12 Chocolates til SmutMas (Day 8) 18+
Plot: Once upon a night the stars shined so bright, that even on a camp night, you were fooled to believe beautiful amber eyes were that of your best friend. Little did you know he was so much more… in more ways than one. DAY 5: Ikon’s Bobby Rated 18: Sensual Content ___________ The calendar in my hand show four more days were left until my final Christmas gift. I took out the eighth chocolate and popped it inside my mouth. I squeal when the sent went off with pop rocks. Now that was an interesting choice to do with chocolate and it worked. I closed my eyes to enjoy the taste, after placing the chocolates on the counter. When I open my eyes, Bobby was leaning close enough to my face that if I moved I would kiss him. “Couldn’t wait to see me?” He said with a huge smirk along his lips. “Welcome to YG.” Someone said before they rest an arm over my shoulders. When I looked up, I saw owner of the arm was B.I of all people. “You must be Bobby girl friend he couldn’t shut up about.” I looked over to see Bobby looking away whilst rubbing the back of his neck. “So you’ve been talking about me, Bobby-ah?” He glance at me from the corner of his eyed as I cross my arms. “Of course, you’re my girlfriend. Even though it’s been long distance until now.” I smirked at the story he made up to tell his band mates. Apparently, he was excited about Ms. Clause’s gift most out of everyone. So much so, that he bragged about me. “Here I am, thinking you wanted to keep it on the DL, and you are telling the others already. Guess I can tell my best friend too.” I giggled making Bobby smile warmly at me. “It’s so hard not talk about you. It’s rare finding a woman that is so beautiful on the inside, that it has to escape on the outside.” This little sweet talker was winning so many brownie points. B.I moved to stand beside Bobby as they both checkout my attire. “You might want to bring her to meet, Jiyong, hyung. He will love her and approve of you two dating.” B.I said whilst patting on Bobby's back. “Not sure I want to. He might try to take her from me.” He pouted as he looked away. I touch his face, and made him look at me. “You know I’m loyal. You are the only man in my eyes.” Bobby's eyes sparkled at my words, before I wrap my arms around him. He didn’t hesitate and held me firmly. “How I dreamed of holding you.” He whisper in my ear, as his head rested on my shoulder. “Eeww….Hey Guys! Bobby got a girlfriend!” B.I cheered as he ran away from us, and into a dancer studio room. I blushed when I felt Bobby’s lips on my cheek. “That excited about the offer grandma gave you?” I said, seeing him grin like a kid in a candy store. “She got me right as the sating ban on my contract was lifted. Then she told me about you, and I was sold.” I pecked his cheek, making him blush this time. “Does B.I know the truth?” He nodded his head, whilst running his fingers through his hair. “Yeah, but I kept my conversation with the others on the calendar private.” I smiled at him, before fixing his shirt a bit. “Are you still working?” He nodded his head before taking my hand in his hand. “You’re welcome to hang with us. I can give you a tour and introduce you to some people.” I nodded my head, before he took me to dance studio. He introduced me to his band mates that were all excited to meet me. B.I did his job proudly about bragging I was Bobby's girlfriend. They were all so sweet and warm towards me. Even check on me between sessions. Bobby sat down beside me whilst chugging a whole bottle of water. I grabbed his towel and dabbed away his sweat for him. He just gave me a warm smile and mouth the words, ‘thank you'. “My hyung texted me earlier. He wants me to introduce you to him before the tour.” I nodded my head before handing them all new bottles of water. “Wouldn’t happen to be the same one B.I mention?” The second I said his name, B.I grinned from ear to ear. “Actually yeah, B.I bragged about you to him. Now Jiyong hyung is curious.” He chuckled as B.I wore his guilt proud. “I won’t argue, as long as the first part of the tour is where you all eat.” Bobby chuckled before nodding his head and going back to work. When they were finished, Bobby had me sit in the lounge, as the group went to shower. The company was really nice. Made me a bit sad they didn’t offer me a job. I so definitely would of accepted. “You must be Y/N.” I looked up to see Jiyong coming to sit in the seat in front of me. “B.I wasn’t kidding, you really are a beauty with style. Bobby got amazing taste.” I just shyly smiled at him. “How did you and Bobby meet?” This is the first time someone asked me this, but lucky I was good at twisting the truth with a lie. “I was actually shopping with my grandma. She the one that called over Bobby and try playing match maker. Just wait until I tell her I met the king of k.pop, G Dragon.” Jiyong laughed and lean forward to hold my hand. “You are so kind. I think you and bobby will be amazing together.” I had actually just got Jiyong’s blessing to date Bobby. I just didn’t have a heart to tell him this was a gift from Ms. Clause that allow me to be bless with a date from him. “Hyung, you’re here.” Bobby said as he came over to us, helping me in my time of need. “Sorry Bobby, I couldn’t wait anymore due to schedule. You got yourself a real catch.” Jiyong bare us farewell, before going off to his schedule, as Bobby took me to get food before the tour. He then took me home himself. Even stay for dinner. “Noona, I swear I would come home to you every night just for this cooking alone.” I giggled at his comment. It warm my heart when people told me that my cooking was good. “So no cuddles?” I teased him, earning a smile from him. “I am always game for a good cuddle. Especially when someone plays with my hair.” The moment he said that I ran my fingers through his hair and massage his scalp. Bobby closed his eyes and enjoy the sensation, before stopped. He pouted though when I did, making me softly laugh. “Now I want cuddles… you tease.” Bobby was adorable when he pouted and whine. It was hard to not give him want he wanted. I took his hand after we clean the dishes and led him upstairs to my bed. He looked around confused before staring at the bed. “You said you wanted cuddles.” The blush darken on his face, as he realized what was happen. “Noona, in all honesty, I have never shared a bed with another woman that wasn’t family.” That’s when the light bulb went off in my head. He told me I got the first date after his contract finally granted him permission. Which also meant, that everything we do would be a first for him. I gently touched his cheek to have him look at me. “Bobby-ah, I wouldn’t do anything you’re not comfortable with. I’m a woman and even I would want someone to take things slow with me. I just simply wanted to cuddle you, like you asked.” The shimmer in his eyes brighten as he saw I was only tried to simply cuddle with him. Nothing more and nothing less. If something did happen, it would be of both our own feel wills. We both lay on the bed, as I was the big spoon and Bobby the small spoon. This way I could play with his hair while we held each other. I blinked a bit when I felt a bare hand rubbing my bare waist. I giggled at how it started to tickle before, Bobby pounce and actually tickled me. He stopped to let me catch my breath, but I noticed the blush came back to his face. My shirt was lifted up to reveal my bra, making Bobby look away shyly. “Penny for your thoughts?” He looked back at me, after I fixed my shirt. “I won’t judge I swear.” He took a deep breath before he spoke. “I am really attracted to you, Y/N noona. It’s hard not to have dirty thoughts about you.” Bobby looked away for a moment before laying back down beside me. “I was even imaging you cooking naked in an apron.” I chuckled and peck the tip of his nose. I then took his hand, and glided it up my stomach, to under my bra. His ear soon join his face as he blushed. “Only fuck, they are so damn soft.” He boldly brought his second hand up to the other breast, and massage that. “How are they such a hand full and so soft at the same time.” I unfasten my bra, because having his hands under was a bit of a strain on both his wrist and my back. The moment it was loose, he moved the bra up when he massage, I felt my breathing start to pick up a bit, as he started to toy with my nipples. “Does this feel good?” I nodded my head, before he brought his mouth down to one, and toy one side with his tongue and lips. He started to enjoy my reaction; from the sensation he was creating in my core. Bobby was seriously driving me crazy. I gasped when his hand found its way down my pants and toying with my nub. I closed my eyes tightly as I felt him driving me nuts. I didn’t even notice he had taken my pants off with my panties. He had me distracted so damn well. His head was between my legs after he trailed his tongue down my stomach. Next thing I knew, his tongue was lapping inside of me. Bobby may had been curious, but now he was exploring and eating my sense of judgement out of me. Once he got me to climax, he licked me clean before crawling to tower over me. “You taste so amazing, noona. Is it okay for me to feel how good you feel too?” Bobby seem to be struggling to ask to sleep with me. It was adorable, and I was honored he wanted to do this with me. I lightly each side of his face and smiled at him. “Go at your own pace silly.” It was his turn to smile as his eyes shine bright. He took his pants off, revealing his already swollen member to flop out of his boxers. I bit my lip and moan after he enter inside and started to slowly move his hips. I wrap my hand around the back of Bobby’s neck, before rolling him on his back and taking control. Watch his reaction of pleasure was a pure turn on. When I picked up pace so we both started to feel the same level of pleasure, His hands found my hips. We both kept going until we both reach our climax. Bobby grabbed my arms, and pulled me down into his embrace, and patted my head. “You are way to good to me.” I pulled the blanket over us and nuzzled into him. “I’m so glad my first time was with you.” I smiled at Bobby after he confessed finally. “Please don’t regret this come Christmas.” I said before he kissed my head. “Doubt it. You were so kind and gentle. Thank you.” He yawn as he said my name. I just play with his hair until we both fell asleep in each other’s arms. I really did feel honor to be his first. Let along be lying beside him at night. I was starting to want to end this all before feelings started to get hurt. I was officially concern about my chocolate for tomorrow.
