Happy Friday, friends! It seems like now more than ever we need something fun, funny, creative, happy, and positive to counter all the negativity occurring in the world. Therefore, this couldn’t be a better time to bring back “Kermit’s Cup of Tea: Friday Findings,” where each week I’ll share my favorite finds from the week. If you stumble across something worth sharing and want to see it up on the blog, feel free to comment below or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you!
Yesterday I had my first fancy facial at a spa in over ten years…and it was fantastic! Soft robe, tranquil music, waterfalls. I mean, it was everything I needed in order to relax and—hopefully—remedy my sudden breakout problem. I’ve had relatively smooth, acne-free skin my entire life, until a few months ago when I woke up to a massive rash on my face. Thinking it must’ve been an allergic reaction to something I’d eaten, I didn’t pay it too much attention…until it never really went away. I’ve tried high-end products which seemed to work a lot better than my most recent purchase of an over the counter $8 facial cleanser that left my face covered in massive, painful, red bumps. I couldn’t take it anymore, so I scheduled an appointment for a facial. I needed a professional to take a look at this problem, provide some sort of diagnosis, a solution, and a fresh start. And as I laid on that cushioned table yesterday, I realized my sudden breakouts were more than just breakouts. They were visible manifestations of what happens when you don’t take care of yourself. What happens when you don’t invest in yourself.
