Sorry for the sudden absence. Went scooting off for a 3 day trip to Goa. Which was great, btw.
Came back to a whole lot of posts to catch up on. Will be reading & commenting in the coming few days :)
Goa was terribly hot this time (34 degree C in Mid - Jan?!!?). Very sunny. Very Humid. None of my make - up would stay put, so I finally gave up and stuck to using only a smudge proof eyeliner and a red lip tint. Nothing else would stay put.
I had rented a bike for the trip, and despite my best efforts (sunglasses, caps, scarfs) ended up tanning my arms quite badly. (My legs though are looking quite nice with the tan)
My face too got sun burnt (I did use sunscreen!). As a result I have red patches on my cheeks and my face is looking un-clean (like there is a layer of sand on it still). Except around my eyes where i wore huge 70's sunglasses. So I am walking around looking funny - with white circles around my eyes!
Luckily I carried my cold cream with me, and that helped a lot in preventing flaking of the skin due to the sun burn.
Now back to Mumbai, I will have to slowly nurse my skin back to normalacy. I am planning to do the following to deal with the skin:
1. Carry a spray bottle of rose water and use every two hours to pull down the inflammation
2. Use Vitamin C serum at night
3. Use cold cream to beat the flakes
4. Use the face buffer to remove dead flaky skin
I hope that this simple regime helps. Any suggestions?
