My my, the work week just blows past me as an adult. My life is basically just work and very very little me time. My appearance and beauty routine has taken a huge hit as a result from my work horse transformation. This now requires me to have “the schedule”. A schedule where I plan out my big beauty steps and spreading them across the week so I only have one thing to do per day.
The calendar I use is work-week centric, so it is a little off. A week is technically cyclical anyways, so the odd linearity of my schedule makes sense either way.
Monday: Aveeno Oatmeal bath. Yes, I have eczema, and a high-stress job does not help at all. Sometimes I don’t get home until 10pm or even midnight, but this unwinding bit for the start of the week is exactly what I need.
Tuesday: At-home facial. Gotta keep my skin glowing and healthy if I have to sell health.
Wednesday: I don’t have much time to run out and get an eyebrow job, so cleaning it up once a week will stretch out the wax longer, thankfully.
Thursday: I am not a big fan of my pores–keeping them clear with a pore strip weekly will not only keep them clean, but also keep me from wanting to pick at my face.
Friday: Polish change. Opening bottles, tearing up stickers, and the odd jobs of a pharmacist does a doozy on my mani–an at home polish change keeps me looking fresh and not as much a hot mess.
Saturday: Using a mint julep masque is one of my small pleasures ever since my undergrad days. It is the quintessential green mask that is depicted throughout time–and I can see why! That is how us doctors roll on a Saturday night–green masks and a movie.
Sunday: Embarrassingly enough, my eczema spreads to my scalp too. While it is under control, I gotta keep it that way by using the Neutrogena T-gel shampoo and conditioner once a week, more if it is really bad.
