    Hair and pores and skin is wanting more healthy in comparison with march(is likely to be as a result of readjustment of my eating regimen or the merchandise. The one fixed issue is that stress remains to be the identical), whereas my face has gone for the over exfoliated painful look. So now on look out for curing these flare ups. 😁

    I used to be extraordinarily uneducated on shopping for all these and my pores and skin could be very choosy in adjusting to any merchandise and these had been largely ‘buying to alleviate a little bit of stress’ type of purchases too. So do take my expertise with a pinch of salt.

    On hindsight, I’m questioning if this write up ought to be titled ‘nervousness buys on lockdown’. 🙈
