Dove Serlahkan Dirimu Photo (Selfie) Contest

Hey lovelies! Let me start the post with a confident looking photo of mine LOL! *shameless*


Very often, we don't always have this kind of confidence everyday. Life is a roller coaster and shit happens sometimes but if we learn to appreciate the good things in life and stay positive to restore things back to normal, the situation isn't that bad actually =)

At Dove, they aimed to make women discover their inner beauty if they are free from hair fall problem. Very often, women lost their sense of confidence due to problems with their appearance i.e. acne skin, hair fall, body shape, and the list goes on and on...

It is pretty common to have hair fall problem nowadays due to stress, poor diet, lack of sleep and post-partum but it doesn't mean that it is irreversible.


But the biggest disease that human are always infected with is procrastination (admit it, people!). I'm a procrastination disease carrier too LOL! Realizing this pattern in human behavior, Dove has came up with a contest called "Serlahkan Dirimu" to encourage us to take the first step and do things that are beyond our comfort zone. It's a self challenge!

Let your confidence shine through once again as you overcome hair fall in 14 days in the "Serlahkan Diri Dalam 14 Hari Dengan Dove" campaign and turn a new leaf. The missions are pretty simple and mostly involves taking selfie! Easy peasy right?
