Uh . . . Face waxing is dangerous
So I had a weird week. By “weird” I mean I think I’m falling apart.
I went and got my face waxed. Now a year ago I would have asked WHY?
But now that I’m 51 and on hormones, uh, it appears there is a dramatic uptick in the growth of facial hair.
So the hot flashes are contained, but there is a wooly mammoth on my flipping face.
Also, I started using Retin A this year. Oooo, it makes my skin look lovely. (Maybe I just think it’s lovely cuz I can’t really see it through all that fur. Well, that and my eyes are shot too.)
It also makes the skin kinda thin. So I stop using it 5 days before my waxing.
Turns out, that wasn’t quite enough. Cuz when she waxed my face, my skin came off with the wax. Well, parts of the skin.
So I have scabs all over the lower part of my face. Hmmm.
Then I go to the knee doctor cuz since I’ve been trying to exercise more, I hurt my knee.
Torn meniscus. OhhhKayyy.
Then on Friday morning, I wake up with an eye infection. How do I know it is an eye infection? Cuz I went to the doctor. With my scabby face and yes, I was limping.
So here I am in my quest for fitness and beauty:
Blotchy face. Limpy/Gimpy. Red swollen eye.
Yeah – I rock.
And I need a veil. #helpme
