…I missed you face

I’ll get to my recap of adventures in the wild Alaska in a little bit…but first I’d just like to let you all know how much I missed my face. Now, I’m well aware exactly how vain that sounds. Don’t you worry…I’ll take the time to explain.

As a first note, my skin never does well on airplanes…never has never will I’m almost sure of it. Even when I was a teenager with no acne {irony which is my life} I would still have breakouts on plane rides. As an adult with adult acne {again…shakes fist at the sky} it has gotten worse. I could handle a blemish or two…what I can’t handle are dry patches and blemishes AND random pore issues. I can’t. I just can’t. But I understood that that was how my skin rolled and I was prepared for that nice face cleaning after getting to the hotel. Did i mention that this was the one trip our luggage was lost leaving me without the proper tools to wash my face for over 24 hours? Well it was. What was once dry combination skin was now oily with flaky patches of dry and smatterings of makeup. And to add icing to the cupcake of complications, when we finally got our luggage…the face wash that I had repackaged for my trip leaked. Luckily, I double zip-lock my stuff but still…it was barely usable.
By the time I got home my skin was a hot mess. I salvaged as much as I could and had a tiny tester of neutrogena left over in my suitcase from Florida but the damage was done. My skin I’d been working so hard on for the past couple months crumbled in a week. Was it perfect yet? No far from it…but I had witnessed progress and it was all gone.
Upon returning home {plane ride from hell mind you…} I hopped in the shower and was reunited with my old friends

And believe me when I say…it was glorious. It’s amazing what skin care can do for you. Well…skincare and good makeup. My confidence was shot because I didn’t have a- the right skincare to salvage what the plane had zapped me of and b- the proper makeup tools to rectify the situation. Needless to say we’ll be doing a better job next time I go traveling…lord knows camping’s going to be an adventure…

Until next time.
