I ate greasy, gluten-infested food and then I barely washed my face before I went to bed. I mean I used my beloved balm (see below) which is like magic and somehow zaps off all my makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft and amazing. But I didn't even bother going anywhere near my eye makeup (of which there was A LOT - when I don't feel well I turn to eyeliner and Pinterest smokey eye tutorials, sometimes layering on more than one) because I knew I didn't have the arm strength or the fortitude to tackle that mess.

I woke up this morning looking like a blotchy, panda bear. If panda's had pores that you could swim in and were a unpleasant shade of pink.

But fear not - because I have things. ALL THE THINGS. And I can fix this so that tonight, Friday night, a night when I want my skin to be at it's healthiest and most glowing, I will have recovered from my poor decision making.


 I have done some horrible things to my skin and my skin self-awareness is master level. Beware overmasking!! If you're trying a new product do not layer it. To get to this level of insanity I slowly layered in additional products over, I kid you not, a year, so that I know that these potent ingredients all work OK together for my skin and won't cause some scary mixing reaction that ends up being even worse. Irritation and allergies are no joke. Seriously, do not try this at home kids. Pick one (maybe 2?) and then if you must descend to my level of spending an hour on a home facial, slowly add in additional products.
