It’s almost the end of Monday. I have a super busy week ahead so here’s a reminder to you and myself, that your title at work/profession doesn’t define you fully as a human being! You are so much more than your job. You are a creative, brother, son, lover, giver, teacher, cook, ever changing soul in a human vessel. I hope you realize that and love all of yourself. You done well 💗 and you being here, reading this, matters! . . . .

U know those pesky breakouts you get when you have a special event? Why do they always come around those times! These @zitsticka patches that go on the skin contain anti-inflammatory ingredients to help soothe and calm pimples before they blow up into full force pimples! Leave them on for 2 hours (I leave them overnight) and wait for the micro darts to dissolve and deliver all the goodness! Would be try these micro-dart patches? #zitsticka #zittycommittee use “IVAN20” at checkout for 20% off your order!

“I don’t think that loving yourself is a choice. I think that it’s a decision that has to be made for survival; it was in my case. Loving myself was the result of answering two things: Do you want to live? ‘Cause this is who you’re gonna be for the rest of your life. Or are you gonna just have a life of emptiness, self-hatred and self-loathing? And I chose to live, so I had to accept myself.” - Lizzo . Thank you for having me @urbandecaycosmetics 💗 Stay naked foundation in 30WY
Saturday afternoon 🌸 thinking of doing podcast styled videos where I just talk/vent/address topics that matter to you! Is there anything that you would like to hear my opinion about? 🥀

🦋🌠 Subtle moments captured @itsdiegolucas ✨ recently I’ve been feeling more happy and light. Less judgement on myself, more love. More enjoying life I guess? There are always going to be hurdles in life, in every stage. It really requires mental work to cope with it, lots of self reflection. If you’re dealing with an uncomfortable situation it usually means you’re growing from it. Growth never stops guys! We all make mistakes, said dumb things, did things we aren’t proud of, but the beauty of life is that you can constantly grow. Learn to drive your life or it’ll drive you! What are some tips you have to cope with life? ✨🥺 mine is learning to not fall back on narratives because they were “taught” to me growing up! Realizing our identities aren’t just based on our past experiences but future ones we want to create for ourselves as well! ✨🥺

That voice in my head ♊️ How is your Sunday? Do you guys feel the retrograde 🤧 Been feeling out of sync and having existential crises lol and questioning everything in life... like why Anyways new videO in my bio!! ✨
Let’s bloom for the summer! I’m so excited to introduce @urbandecaycosmetics new Stay Naked Weightless Liquid Foundation. Get this, it comes in 50 shades with 9 intensities, 3 mastertones and 7 undertones! Yas inclusitivity! The foundation is a beautiful medium coverage that is super flexible on the skin and also breathable, lasting up to 24 hours wear. My shade is #40NN and it blends into my skin seamlessly. It’s a natural matte finish too! I feel super honored to be part of this because I’ve always struggled with my own beauty and where I fit in, especially coming here from Malaysia. I felt like I was always oscillating between being myself or what society expects of me. I watched @urbandecaycosmetics new #staynaked campaign and I was so inspired, I loved how they showcased different kinds of beauty, so we can do it, too! #udpartner
If I had a hero name what would it be?

Hi hello you made it to middle of the year 😯 looking for some new music btw! Been listening to Yuna, Joy Crookes, and Joji! That kind of vibe! Thanks bebes Also check out some pics we took @jonsams !! ❤️🙏🏻🥺
I've been using Paula's Choice for about 4 years now. If you have been watching my videos I have always included PC products in my regimen because I truly believe in their skincare. I've even watched their packaging change, haha! That's how long I've been a fan! Their 2% BHA liquid was really helpful when I struggled with blackheads and acne. When I was working at a restaurant years ago, my skin would get so easily clogged and bumpy. Honestly it made me so insecure I didn't even want to go out on my days off from work! I tried sooooo many different skincare products but the exfoliant was what really helped. I love that Paula's Choice focuses on actives and antioxidants, you know? All the good stuff. Recently I've been using their 10% Azelaic Acid booster every other night and it's been helping my skin look glowier and smoother! It also brightens hyperpigmentation from acne marks. In the daytime I go over with the Essential Glow Moisturizer with SPF 30! It's one of the best sunscreen moisturizer formulations on the market! It's smooth, lightweight, and doesn't break me out. I wanna know your experience with @paulaschoice ! Comment down below! #PCglow #PCturns24 you can use my code 'IVAN' for 15% sitewide!
To see all my queer peers being uplifted, celebrated and seen this month has been so so amazing! I don’t know how to put into words! To see ourselves in print, on Tv, billboards... wow. To all the brands and allies, I wanna say thank you for supporting us, and please keep the energy! Just because pride month is over doesn’t mean the issues surrounding us stop. As for us? We gotta keep shining and doing our best ⭐️ when we have the energy/spirit to do so! ✨ sometimes... we need the help you know? Some days we just don’t have the energy to open these conversations, debate and argue JUST TO EXIST! I had a young fan from Puerto Rico tell me they had came out to their parents and got kicked out 😢 it really broke my heart to hear. I wish all stories could be heard, the good, bad, simple... it reminds me that even though I’m safe in my space, not everyone is! And that drives me so much! There’s so much more to be done ❤️ @dfreske 📸
⭐️ So excited to show you guys the @biossance Top Shelfies Kit! It's 5 their bestsellers in a kit so you can try out their products. All of the products contain renewable Squalane, which locks in hydration and moisturizes. The Squalane + Vitamin C Rose oil is one of my favorite products ever! It contains a stable form of Vitamin C to brighten the skin, and it can be used as the last step of skincare or in your foundation for a dewy, bright glow. The Squalane +Phyto-Retinol serum contains bakiuchiol, which is a plant-based retinol alternative. It smoothes the skin without the irritation and redness! #biossance #biossancepartner Check it out at Sephora.com !

Red red ❤️ also some pics from last night 😴 ivanka popped out Edit my back feels better, the cause was bc my hamstrings were to tight and it pulled on my pelvis, causing it to tilt! So I need to stretch more to improve my range of motion 💗 thank u for all the sweet messages and dms! Will start filming regularly again!! Happy Saturday guize

I’ve had my lower back pain for about a week + now, sorry for the lack of video uploads! It really hurts to sit, so filming and editing is difficult. I finally edited a video last night! I was feeling so frustrated and helpless that I could only listen to music, podcasts, or speeches but couldn’t physically do anything. Nothing feels worse than knowing your potential is being limited ✋ but everything takes time and it’s probably a sign from my body that I’m overworking it physically or mentally... learning to just let go, sometimes it feels like the world is going to fall apart if you do, but it won’t 👶🏻 any tips on how to beat restlessness or anxiety when not being able to move 100%? Could really appreciate it today 💗
Tired but inspired
Glossy lid flower moment 🏵 Hope you’re having a happy Sunday! Woke up with severe back pain yesterday, not sure what is wrong! Couldn’t even reach down to pick up my socks because of the pain! No pains down the leg, so maybe I just pulled my back muscle? Will go to a chiro tomorrow, but thank u all for the advice. Sometimes we forget to be grateful for the ordinary things we can do everyday until it’s taken away from you 🧚🏻♂️
It’s been almost 8 years since I’ve left Malaysia to come to the US, and I’ve moved around 8 times. I never really felt at ease or safe, always anxious for the next step. It’s so easy to lose track of time and what I’m here to do. Every year I feel a little more present and clear than before. I used to not like celebrating my birthday, my thoughts were always like why? Why do I deserve a celebration? I didn’t earn it, I was just born, haha! I constantly diminished my accomplishments in the year too... this year felt a little different. I feel happier and prouder... of myself? I’m constantly learning more and more about myself, I was so busy getting to know other people that I forgot to learn who I am. One thing is for sure, all the most uncomfortable and difficult decision has led me more into who I am. 💗🥰💗 so thankful for my wonderful friends and family, and you!!! @dfreske 📸
I guess I was always a crybaby 🤧
Thank you for making this boy very happy 🌸 . I’m truly so blessed. Not everyday is easy, but I’ve learned to accept my problems. Not everything in your life needs to be fixed. I’ve learned that you’re going to have problems to overcome, no matter where you are in life, and that’s normal! All we can do is to strive to be the best version of yourself everyday, in every form! 🌈😇 If there was one thing I could tell my younger self, is that everything will work itself out, as long as you don’t have those expectations of your life! Let go and take a breath! 🌸 My birthday is on June13th! My family just surprised me earlier hehe 😢🥰
I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about straight pride, lol... honestly I don’t even know where to begin? Haha!! Isn’t straight pride like everyday? You want straight pride? First have - your rights taken away - your history taken away - your marriage taken away Lol. But actually I’m so grateful for all the amazing campaigns and visibility this pride season. I love seeing queer poc people being empowered and feel seen! There’s still so much more work to do not just in the US but also globally!! Your voice is your tool! Let’s continue spreading love and positivity even after pride season ya? 🌈❤️ wearing @americanapparel btw thank u for leaving amazing empowering comments in my video! I’m going to continue sharing them too!!

With APAHM passing and Pride month ahead, I've been feeling so many emotions. Coming from Malaysia to the US, I've always felt like I had to hide and blend in, take up less space. I've always thought that I would never be successful (in every way of the word), always settled for just okay, because I thought that's what I deserved! With every passing day, I try to unlearn past traumas and patterns and i'm slowly becoming more comfortable in my own skin. I'm just starting to grow into myself, be more comfortable and fill myself up with so much more. First step is comfort, next step is confidence. I don't know if i've ever told myself I was confident about anything! It's an ongoing process for sure, but everyone's journey is powerful. Speak about things that matter to you, support people/causes that you believe in! Your voice is more powerful than you realize. There's a power in being different, you know? We. Are. All. In. This. Together. @lincandcanyon
