Vanity O Vanity
I have mentioned my Melasma (discoloration of the skin due to hormones) before and my battle with it. I feel so intimate with this condition that I have vowed the next dog I get I will name him/her Melasma. I had a ghastly amount during my pregnancy and am trying to rid my face of the last traces of this evil devil. I started using Tri-Luma, which is a prescription bleaching cream that I used before I got pregnant. After using it for a week or so I thought it would be a good idea to see if it is ok to use while breastfeeding. NOPE! No good. Poo! Now what? I am wrinkled and discolored. I look like a suede handbag that was left in the rain.
Then I began checking on other things. I can’t use Strivectin for my stretch marks, white strips for bleaching my teeth or laser skin treatments. NOOOOOOO! How am I going to find a husband if I am wrinkled and dotted up with yellow teeth?
Doing what is in the best interest of my daughter I decided that it would be best if I took a sabbatical from my vanity. At least until I stopped breastfeeding........... then I am all over it or it is all over me!
