My skin has plateaued. Okay, maybe not the right adjective for the skin but it has.
Wait, erase that.
FREAK -OUTS OVER BREAK-OUTS
I started the draft of this post a few months ago and that was the state of affair of my skin. Plateaued. Now, I have gone into a full-on crisis as I feel that my skin has become my enemy. I feel like it’s been against me lately and I’m starting to freak out big time considering that this month is a busy one with big undertakings such hosting ARTEMANO’s exclusive Dinner Series, hosting a fashion show, as well as as co-hosting Daytime Ottawa with Derick Fage, again!
I normally won’t be in that much of a panic mode if I don’t have those big events coming up. Wait! Erase that too. I always freak out when I get a break-out. I have always been vigilant about skincare (Okay you got me, I slept/passed out with my make-up on once or twice last year. Gross, I know.),which really stems from the fact that no matter what happens in life, break-outs are just a constant. But does it have to do it right this moment?
HOW TO GET RID OF ACNE
Maybe I’m being overly dramatic here, it’s not a full blown acne epidemic, but you see, I would have a lengthy period of time of exuberant skin and then all of the sudden, the honeymoon is over and I could feel change coming. It starts with a small bump, followed by another. Small, colourless, sensation less – barely noticeable in singularity but then it starts to form a cluster… and that’s when I start to feel the panic.
And this is where I’m at today.
THE QUEST FOR THE ETERNALLY BEAUTIFUL SKIN
So, as it stands, I have less than 3 days to get back to this state of condition with my skin. The quest for eternally beautiful skin – it’s like the never ending quest for the ultimate fountain of youth in middle earth. Desperate, much?
Why yes I am dear Frodo.
I’m not asking for lofty ideals like Hollywood-standard of beautiful, ethereal, glowing skin. I’m just asking for my skin to go back to its normal state of being alright just like how it was in these photos taken several months ago.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. I am ready to try anything. Do you have any tips for me?
