Skincare & Sunburns

The trains are (exceptionally) crap this week, so I was allowed to work from home Tuesday-Wednesday. You’d have thought I might have had time to write some posts then, but I guess not. Can we discuss how awesome it was not having to commute though? And not being surrounded by chattering people all day?

Anyway. About two months ago, I suddenly decided to start with skincare. Yep, you read it right, I’m 35 and haven’t done that before. Obviously, I’ve washed my face (with soap!!) and even used day cream every now and then, but that’s been it. Then I started reading Kakan Hermansson‘s preaching on skincare, and thought “maybe I should give it a try?”. So the thing she keeps talking about it is a 2% bha from Paula’s choice. Honestly – I still don’t really know what it is (yeah, yeah, it exfoliates), but I can be easily persuaded.

Said and done, I ordered the whole shebang from Paula’s choice (…I’m also lazy, have I mentioned this before?) – cleanser, 2% bha, day cream and night cream:


And now, 2 months later… I have to say it’s quite nice. My skin is definitely a lot softer, and I have less blackheads and zits. In addition to this, the joy of having a day cream with SPF. Why has no one told me this before? As the pale northerner I am, this has already saved me a couple of times (like when I went biking with my (red-headed) brother, and you couldn’t really tell on me, but he was lobster-red). I swear I will never use a day cream without it. Think I exaggerate? Just listen to this podcast episode. Really, do it.
