I don't know what's going on with my skin lately.
On the weekend I noticed the start of a healthy blind pimple near my hairline, and that sucker grew into a monster. This morning I wake up and there's another painful one starting near the inner corner of my right eyebrow. I accidentally bumped it this morning and OH MY LORD THE PAIN. What on earth? Be gone, you evil red gremlins! For someone who very rarely breaks out, I've had quite a few small ones dotted all over my forehead too. Rah! I feel like this is entirely unfair, being that I've reached the thirties surely I should be past all these adolescent problems? I dealt with this when I was 16, it shouldn't be happening now! 16 year old problems are wonky skin, unrequited love and trying to bargin with your mum to put Sun-In in your hair. These are not supposed to be my 31 year old problems.
It's not only the breakouts, but my poor skin is just looking patchy, tired and, well, blah. I look like I've aged five years in one week. Is that even possible?!
It can't be diet, and I'm getting enough exercise each day. Maybe it's a combination of things. Maybe it's from Winter settling in. Maybe it's from not getting outdoors and the lack of Vitamin D (Sob! Come back Summer!). Maybe it's stress from moving or the type of cleanser I'm using or the bloody planets aren't aligned or something. Melbourne! Was it you that did this to me? Say it isn't so!
That's it. I've decided that I'm going to blame Winter. Hell, I blame everything else on Winter, so this is just one more thing to add to the list.
So, I'm reaching out to all you beauticians out there. Help! What do I do? Do I go for a facial? Change my moisturiser? Chant something three times backwards? Help, I'm desperate!
Edit #2: Another is now forming on my cheek. It's the start of the apocalypse.
