Okay I’ll admit it, I have been blessed with my facial skin so far (touches wood). I’m allergic to something that’s in just about everything (shampoo, conditioner, soap, paint, bodywash, bubble bath, hair dye, cleaning products, moisturisers, washing powder, washing conditioner, air freshener, scented candles, blah, blah, blah, blah,) and this can wreak havoc where clothes touch me or indeed, bedding – so all over basically. But… aside from one scary time when my facial skin quite literally burned off because of one ill-advised use of a facial scrub, I’ve been lucky with my face.
I never had teenage acne or an oily t-zone. I don’t tend to get zits often…
Yesterday, I began to develop the monster of all spots on my chin. It’s not one of those easily got rid of, ready to be despatched ones either. This one is angry.
This spot seems to be personally annoyed that I haven’t had enough spots thus far in life and is determined to stay, and to be very red. It actually woke me from my sleep with it’s painful, irritable, throbbing.
So by now you’re thinking, so what Meri? Just get a grip, it’s only a spot.
Yeah well, tonight is date night. I’m pretty sure that all Thom will be able to see is this spot, even when I’ve applied make-up to it. I’m considering my options now.
Heavy duty concealer
A very low cut top
I’m leaning towards the second option if truth be told. I’d rather him think I was a little bit slutty and rather up for it, than think “Oh my god that’s a terrible spot she has plastered 25 layers of cement onto, I better not mention it!”
If you have any better answers, please feel free to let me know 🙂
Bet nobody notices when she gets a chin buddy.
