I’m 34 years old and still have acne problems. I’m taking a med for it, but also decided to try something topical that was over the counter. Good stuff, it dries the hell out of any acne that’s even thinking of making me look like a mythological creature. However, it also dries the hell out of my face. It’s the old face-melting acne treatment. If I’m just a walking skull (I giggle now at a Mystery Science Theater episode where they make fun of a movie called “The Screaming Skull”), I won’t have acne, now will I? Who needs skin? It’s for amateurs.
Yesterday I looked like I had spent all day lying underneath the blazing, Arizona sun. And yet I’m in Ohio and sadly haven’t visited Arizona in quite awhile. So I took a break from the stuff and was told that Milk of Magnesia helps treat acne too. And pure lemon juice can be used for an astringent. Oh and eating two spoonfuls of honey before going to bed is supposed to help burn fat while I sleep! Didn’t know that! Well I weighed 144 when I went to bed last night, and in the morning I weighed 143! Hm! Anyway, my face feels and looks less sunburned today, I’ll have you know. That’s all for now.
Now I have something to relate to with a coworker. We both battle with our acne, although she’s 19 and I’m well past my prime for this freaking skin condition. They say stress is a key factor in blemishes. Where do I go to get away from stress? Oh yeah, I’ll join a monastery.
