I knew my dedication to skincare was borderline obsessive. But I knew, without a doubt, that it was an addiction when my first thought after discovering plumbing problems in the bathroom this morning was: “how am I going to do my morning skincare routine?”
I can always go across the street to a neighborhood bodega to use the bathroom there (at my own risk, of course); the thought of hauling all my products over there and locking myself up in the bathroom for 10 minutes for my regimen sounded absurd. It is also a method of self-deception. My morning routine, simpler of the two routines for AM and PM, doesn’t take 10 min. It’s more like 30. Don’t judge me. You have to let the wash-off pack settle before rinsing! Plus it’s a good opportunity to run through the day ahead… Or so I tell my husband.
Thank gaaawwwd for modeling masks:
This one in particular comes in easy-to-use packaging – you just mix the contents of pouch #1 with pouch #2. Li-tree-rlly.
After I peeled off the mask (and this one is soooouper easy to peel off), I wiped my face with a generous amount of toner on a cotton pad and I was ready to go. Actually, ready to call the plumber. Let’s admit it, I’m not going outside without my full face done.
