The other day BSD went to a party. I know. She was just as shocked as you are. Anyway, so unusual was this that she applied a resurfacing facemask for 20 minutes before attempting makeup. It was a new mask. She hadn’t tried it before. She is an idiot. Her skin reacted and went…purple. She gets hivey too. Although her skin is not that sensitive, she has tiny allergic responses to things…ummm…flying around in the air? Who knows, but they rise like mosquito bites and then, if she fiddles with them which she obviously does, they turn into spots. So that’s helpful. She also performs surgery on ingrown hairs even though she is 3000 years old and should know better. She is a series of beauty micro disasters, most of which come from… trying too hard.
So, how to redress the balance and return everything to neutral? La Roche-Posay Cicaplast B5 Spray. It comes in a gel too and can be used on everything from spots to scarring to bites to skin that is angry because of Baltic wind and central heating (not such a problem this year sadly). It will soothe, provide instant comfort to minor itches and irritations and act as a barrier to fend off external aggressors (those flying things?). Anyway, it’s a kind of insurance policy and it helps you forgive yourself when you’ve slightly fucked up. Forgiveness. Bottled.
