Now, the facial

I read about a home facial at Lily and decided to get one. The steaming went well, I’d done it before. The cleanse was effective, though after rinsing off the pretty blue gel, my face felt a little dried out. Toning, not so much; my face felt a mild sting.

It’s not supposed to do that, right?

The sting was around the nose, so I assumed it was from blowing it all the time.

Then exfoliation. Ooookay, not too bad. The apricot seeds smell kinda nice. Great texture too.

Then the face mask. I used a purifying mud pack coz, you know, I’m shiny.

*blink blink*

It stings.

I mean it stings.

No, seriously, it really stings!! It’s not supposed to do that, is it?

I tried to suppress the screams. After all, siri ya urembo ni uchungu, au sio? Hence braiding, threading, waxing, tattoo-ing…

But fcuk, it STINGS!

Slight digression: Where’s the Italics shortcut on Office 2007?

Eventually the stinging stopped, and I kinda liked the teabag feeling on my eyes.

A few days later my face had … er … [sun?]burns … in several places. Notably the places with the sting. And the heat rash. The portions felt rough and scaly. Like industrial leather. Crud!

Turns out I have dry skin. I always thought I had oily skin coz I have blackheads and my face shines so much. I’m like organic vaseline. But after the burning and the rough scaly patches that migrated around my face for a few days, I remembered some crazy facial lady claiming I had dry skin. Hmph. Oh well, at least the stinging stopped.

This week, I switched to Bio Oil and Dry Skin products from Himalayas. So far so good. I want to try their refreshing fruitpack made specially for dry skin.

I sure hope it doesn’t sting…
