On Sundays, I love a good bed time story, so today’s is entitled : The Girl Who Wanted Good Skin
There once lived a moderately smart, 20-something female with moderately good skin and a moderate education in cosmetology. Despite the fact that she knew over exfoliating was a serious world problem, until one sunny day in July, she’d never experienced the horror of destroying her mediocre skin.
After a week of Biore pore strips, shower after shower of microexfoliant, and gross amounts of time spent in traffic manually extracting blackheads, the girl woke up, one sunny day in July, with horribly broken out skin.
Why did this young, bright, stubborn lass suffer such an ill fate? Too much of a good thing.
And, while this story may in fact just be a ghost tale to share at your next campout, the truth of the matter is, no matter how fun it is to look at the forrest of blackheads on a pore strip, spending too much time freeing dead tissue and dirt from your pores can lead to breakouts.
Have no fear, they are temporary. But be warned.
Peace. Love. and Bobby Pins.
