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.
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!
