Summer is not lovin' my skin!

I have not a clue what I've done to upset my skin other than the warm weather, humidity, and a bit of stress might be making it act up but I've got three rather swollen blemishes "growing on my face" (as in they haven't quite surfaced into a head but they're incredibly painful and sensitive including one on my browbone). Yikes.

I normally don't break out except the occassional small blemish that disappears in a couple days max with Johnson & Johnson's Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment. Not meaning to come off as all bragging and such but my skin is so much better than it used to be in my teenage years and I swear by my Oatmeal Milk & Honey Soap and my Nourishing Facial Scrub & Mask from Lavender Fields Farm. I might end up picking up their Nourishing Facial Tonic the next time I go out there since my skin is being "acne-prone" at the moment. But normally my routine of their soap, the scrub 1-2 times a week, and dab of Cetaphil lotion as my moisturizer and MAC's Fast Response Eye Cream usually gives me no troubles at all.

I know since it's summer and all you should be wearing sunscreen (though I wear the stuff year-round) and I just wanted to share that I swear by Clinique's Super City Block SPF 25. Best stuff ever because it doesn't "feel" like sunscreen!

. . .

Otherwise, life is good but filled with work and school. I will say that earning "All Star" status at work has been a definite perk and an absolute honor!
