Friday Morning Surprise!

What do you do when you wake up with a stinging, burning, itchy rash on your face…other than furiously wash it with all of the soothing face washes you can, and moisturize it 3,000 times over? Well, blog about it of course!

Oy. I’ve had a few little pimpley type bumps on my face for a couple of weeks now, and last night I was just ready for them to go away – so I broke out the 10% benzoyl peroxide gel from Target and put some on before going to bed…only to wake up with a terribly unpleasant, a bit painful, super gross looking rash in the exact places I put the gel/ointment.

poor face.

Washing my face with a purifying clay cleanser AND the ocean mineral cleanser I reviewed a few weeks ago didn’t help, nor did slathering it in a handful of different lotions/moisturizers….so thank goodness for foundation and concealer for saving the day! Well. Sort of. My face is still burning/itching, I just took a Benadryl, and all I want to do is stick my face in the cup of yogurt I’m currently eating, but hey – at least I don’t look quite as ridiculous as when I woke up!

    1. Some sort of reaction to the benzoyl peroxide! Luckily the Benadryl seems to sort of be helping:) and thanks!

  1. Our faces are all so incredibly different. I have found when what was supposed to help made me wake up looking like I had ‘died in the night’ and my baggy under the eyes looked so swollen it looked as if I had met a drowning death. The beautiful creams that had been tested and re-tested were surely not for me. I simply washed my face and wore ‘nothing’ on it except powdered my nose for several days. Now I go very carefully even with gentle moisturisers and avoid the Senior help lines. Perhaps you are learning while still young the differences that separate us and flow with your needs. Thanks for the post.
