I’ve been away on a little hiatus called vacation for the last 10 days (minus Instagram, obvi), and have had an amazing time. Though I wish it would never end, I’ve learned one great thing on the trip. I can get away with washing my face like a man and no one gives a shit.
Seriously though, can you even imagine not washing your face with your lovely little face wash, Kiehl’s lotion, and night serums? I couldn’t either until I forgot mine in a hotel bathroom while being distracted by an amazing city. SHOCKING. Anyways, when I told my mom, she told me to hush and just splash some water on my face. My initial reaction was to brace for impact, expecting Zit-ville and greasiness to overcome my poor little face.
Much to my shock, my face did not fall apart sans luxury face wash. Instead, with a little help from this thing called sleep, my face has turned into a nearly blemish free, even-toned, happy looking face. How can this be?! I’m pretty sure it’s a large combination of rest, clean air, and good old laughing all day that did the real trick, but isn’t it a lovely little surprise to know that we can act just like a man if we’d like and get away with it? Now, this does not give you permission to start farting all over the place, use the word “chick”, or heaven forbid, stop shaving your armpits, but it might just give you a little more leeway in the way you think about your high maintenance self.
Food for thought. Now go shave your legs.
