I don't know...is it? Somebody please tell me because I'm completely clueless when it comes to skin care, makeup, or even leg shaving. When I was growing up, importance was placed on how much sand and dirt you could come home with between your fingers and toes. Moisturizer? Pffft.
But as I've gotten thinner, I'm looking at my body in a new light. I used to take it for granted. With Weight Watchers and exercise, I've been taking care of the inside. Now that I'm feeling fabulous on the inside, it's time to take care of the outside.
So I've been googling. Yes, googling. For product reviews. It's so sad, it's funny. I feel like Data from Star Trek trying to emulate human behaviour; the more I learn, the more baffled I become. Like toner. I don't know what it is. I know the kind that goes in a laser printer, but somehow I don't think it's the same thing you splash on your face. Unless being smeared with charcoal is the new look for spring?
The mysteries of toner aside, I've so far put together that I should be cleansing my face twice a day and using moisturizer. Accordingly, I've bought cleanser and a moisturizer with sunscreen. And because I'm a deer in the headlights and susceptible to marketing, I also bought a doomahickey that looks exactly like a miniature belt sander for your face.
I used my new products over the weekend and my face actually feels fresh and smooth. Maybe this face cleaning thing isn't so bad? I'll try it for awhile and see how it goes. My next step might even involve makeup. And then, dear readers, I really will be asking if it's Maybelline. Or Cover Girl. Or...or...or well I've run out of names because, as you've no doubt already concluded, I'm clueless ;)
