Sorry. Couldn't resist. I wanted to call this o-balm-a (I've been worrying about my skin!) but I came across a photo of my sister-in-law's sheep and couldn't stop myself.
I love Obama. What's not to love? If we need the answer to that I think we should ask Michelle - she probably knows more on that subject than the rest of the free world.
I also love balm. Any face cream with the word 'balm' on its lid is likely to do the job. Since my frantic, 'I'm sick of my rosacea' post on Saturday, I have used Boots Botanics super-douper-de-booper balm on my cleansed visage first thing in the morning (when not leaving the house) and liberally in the evening before trying to work my way through 'Wuthering Heights'. This balm costs about a fiver, smells of nothing and seems to do the job.
My other recent skin discovery is to cleanse before bed, reducing morning skin interference to a splash of warm water and even more moisturiser. Again, early results are positive.
Along with the 3 gallons of water I'm consuming each day, the redness and dryness appear to be calming down - it's getting 'o-so-calm-a'!
Is this the beginnings of a poem? Maybe I should stop now. I know I should stop now.
Tomorrow - o-farm-a?!
