I’ve spent the day sleeping and soaking. We ran out of bubble bath so I squirted a ton of my brother's Lynx (Axe) shower gel into the tub. I lay in there for so long that it must have seeped right into my skin because, 2 hours later, I still smell like a teenage boy. The stench is so strong it burns my nasal passages. It's not even one of the nicer editions of Lynx. It's called 'Instinct'-what instinct, repulsion? Fear? I cannot describe how much I hate this smell. If you had to pick a smelly, why not buy one of those French colognes? They even sound sexy; Givenchy, Bleu de Chanel...Baguette? I don't know any more.
Oh, and like I promised, a picture of my other dog, Jake:
He's a Bitsa (bits-a this and bits-a that), no idea what breeds his parents were but we think perhaps he has Collie genes in there somewhere.
My skin feels really good at the minute. The texture of my skin changes a lot because of accutane, so one day it's hot, sweaty and very porey, and then a few days later it feels soft and clearer. It has felt clear for a few weeks now, so I'm hoping this is a permanent transition. I think my red marks are calming down too, they're more pink than red, and I can actually see my freckles again, I forgot I had so many! I find I'm able to look into a mirror and not feel totally repulsed by the reflexion. It's weird, because I can actually see my face properly, the face that was hidden beneath layers of acne for years and years. The last time I saw my face without spots I would've been 13 or something. Really looking forward to a near-clear christmas complexion
