The change of season gets me every time. And it’s mostly a case of a few very unattractive whoppers on the chin – cystic, nasties with their own postcodes (according to my kids who make no pretense by openly staring at them aghast).
Every year around May the air (this side of the planet) becomes a little cooler and your skin reacts by becoming drier and in need of moisture.
As your skin is quite a smart organ, it produces more oil to compensate for the lack of love it’s feeling from the weather. Voila! And so the infections begin. That’s all they are, but how annoying for a girl who is launching a product, meeting and greeting and trying to live the glamorous life. Not what I ordered.
AND to add insult to injury, I’ve been invited to Bali with – you guessed it – a gentleman friend. Despite my numerous attempts to sabotage the trip by throwing a few tanties, and a desperate need to be the perfect desirable vixen, I’m going on this romantic getaway with zits!!!!!
So, I’ve resigned myself to adopt the more grown up attitude of “this is me mate – not perfect all the time – not anywhere near it,” and to hell with the illusion. This is me!
So, boo-hoo to adult acne pre vacance to Bali with gentleman friend! At least I still have my sense of humour. And isn’t that the most attractive feature of a woman? So girls, at the end of the day, let’s just enjoy life, be happy and have a laugh – zits and all!
