|Bioderma, Clarins, the Omorovicza "mitt," the Sisley face mask, and the Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel|
At any rate, when flying home, I came up with a few ideas that I think will be successful for me if I ever have to fly again, which I sincerely hope not, given the unsettling experiences I had coming back. One day I may write about them, but for now I'm too "verklempt," as Mike Myers used to say on SNL. I'm just glad I'm home, where I should be, recovering from it all. (Lawdy! How DO I Manage to sound like such a drama queen!)
So, getting back to my thoughts and ideas.
- A surprising and successful way to find use for something I didn't care for before:
I simply wet it, wrung out all the water I could and popped the thing into a ziplock bag and slid it into the top - and thus easily accessible - compartment of my carry-on. Every time I needed to wash off my face or hands, I turned to a clean area of the mitt.
And good grief. This is not a germaphobe talking, just a relatively clean person: those planes are absolutely filthy! Even though business was much nicer (read "cleaner") than economy, still.... And since I try to stay away from the bathrooms as much as possible because of the germ factor, this damp washcloth turned out to be an inspired move. I liked that there was no stickiness after I used the "mitt." I find that any kind of wipes leave behind an unpleasant stickiness. I can actually see myself using this trick even for a trip by car or train.
- The Bioderma worked out so well that next time I'm going to double the amount I take.
- Skincare masks turned out to be a huge "face-saver."
So, there you have it: three ideas that really worked. I'm sure more will come up as soon as I can wrap my head around all that's happened, as well as once my fevers stop torturing me!
In the meanwhile, I hope everyone is doing as well as can be, "only better"!
