I have had some type of hormonal surge over the past week that has caused my face to do unreal things. Never have I been the girl with acne (knock on wood) and I don't plan on being that girl at almost 30. However, I have had a for real breakout this week, ALONG with this red dry patch on my face. First thought was...
"YAY! I'm pregnant!"
But no, First Response cleared that up for me. I suppose it's stress related. Or my diet. Either way, it totally sucks.
I have always been a big Vitamin E fan. I love that stuff. I take it every morning and always use it on cuts, scars, pimples, chap lips, and all skin in general. It's a miracle vitamin, seriously. So today as I was trying to do everything in my power to remedy my breakouts I decided to quit trying "Internet methods" and just stick to Vitamin E. So after a full 14 hours of constantly applying it to my blemish, and visible results I might add the husband came home.
He walked in, kissed me and said,
"You smell really weird."
At that moment, I SMELLED it also. It was not the smell of Vitamin E, but rather the smell of Fish Oil.
Oh My Heavens... I totally messed up! The two supplements LOOK and FEEL the same. Same clear, oblong capsule. Same light brownish oil inside. But NOT the same thing at all.
Horrified as I was that I might have royally screwed myself I immediately began my Internet research (Which DON'T EVER do this. You always shut the computer thinking you have cancer or some weird and rare disease. WebMD is the devil.) Much to my dismay, I didn't have a flesh eating bacteria but rather had done something right! Fish oil is GOOD for your skin. WHEW!
Apparently the omega-3 fatty acids are really good for your heart AND your face!
Thank you, Jesus!
My face isn't going to fall off, and yes I made a mistake. But it turns out the worst part of my mistake is that my face smelled like a fish. And if that is the worst part, I'm cool with it!
