The Painful truth of Beauty
What I love most of all is when they hurt. I know we are not meant to and I know we should treat our skin gently, but I can't help it. I love it when an exfoliator is sandy and scratchy and it feels like it's scratching off the outer two layers of my epidermis. I love it when a peel feels like they put the wrong acid in it and it's burning away my pigment. Give me a mask that sets so hard, tight and itchy that I want to scream. Then I feel like it's really working and I got my money's worth.
Am I only one that feels this way? Probably.
