The last week or so has come and gone, much unlike the impacted pores on my face. For those unaware, November has been facewash free, and while the first few weeks were oily and pimply, the week after was the perverbial calm after the storm. Or, the calm before the serious storm.
After an oil lull, came an oil surge, leaving me feeling like a day old pizza box left in the gutter–greasy, dirty, and frankly a little trashy.
I got out the baking soda to attempt exfoliation, and gave my mug a nice rubdown with a watery paste of sodium bicarbonate. And let me tell you, Arm and Hammer did it’s job, leaving my face feeling clean and refreshed, but not tight the way traditional products make me feel after a nice lather.
With another week to go, and some serious work and holiday time to ignite oil production, we shall see if the storm has settled, or is just gearing up for a new pass.
til next face washing.
Peace. Love. and Bobby Pins.
