After three straight days of very indulgent seafood eating, I woke up this morning in my bed in New York wondering why my face felt so rough. My cheeks felt flaky, rough, and borderline scale-like, and I noticed a few zits my my cheeks, chin, and forehead. I was wondering if the high level of iodine in the lobster, mussels, and clams were getting to me… and by getting to me, I mean showing up as little mean presents on my face.
I suppose this is what I get for getting completely engrossed in the incredibly fresh and local seafood of New Brunswick and PEI. My face will have to suffer for the next few days as I exfoliate and mask it and allow it to recover from the seafood I probably ate way too much of, but it was all worth it.
It’s a good thing that makeup exists; no one at work will notice this.
