I'm veering off the path for a bit here friends. Usually I blog about craft projects, DIY, my kids, our adventures.
Today I have to do me. Specifically my skin.
Please let me be vain for a moment. I used to have beautiful skin. Smooth, soft, perfect caramel colored skin. My teen skin years were good to me. I did not suffer from acne or breakouts. I used regular bar soap to wash my face and that was just fine.
I am totally comfortable bragging about my skin because there was not much else to be vain about. Exhibit A.
Yes, that's me. I had HUGE red glasses, braces, frizzy hair and no sense of style. As can be seen by my choice of a sports bra with overall shorts? Really??? So I'm sure you can agree when I say that my skin was the best thing I had going for me.
Then I hit 30. I was totally fine with turning 30. My skin on the other hand? Clearly, not so much. In the last year it has gone completely bonkers, crazy, haywire. I am prone to ridiculous breakouts, hideous pores, blackheads, and well yuck, yuck, yuck. My chin is the absolute worst, but I've been getting zits everywhere now and I am not a FAN. Please look at my chin, it's a war zone.
I've tried intensive masks, blackhead clearing scrubs, oil removing papers, salicylic acid face washes, and sensitive skin bars, but I don't know what I'm doing. I'm literally just standing in the face wash aisles of Target and taking a stab in the dark at what might help.
None of it is working. I need help. S.O.S my friends. What do I do? I've considered the Xeno hotspot and those battery powered face scrubbers on several recent Target trips. I'm just not certain if they would be worth the money. However, given a thumbs up by a friend I'd be willing to spend the money.
Now that I've shared those hideous photos with you. Advice, anyone?!?!
