ok, it's almost over. sitting here with a gel-mask thing on my face for the LAST time.
i got home from dc and mary schook was hysterical - "oh my god, you look better than you did before you left!" (that was tuesday)
her friend ronnie kroell, who i haven't seen since i emerged from chemo in march, said, "you look BEAUTIFUL!"
i thought i looked great (and so did all kinds of random guys on the street, which is pretty thrilling on its own) but my mum didn't notice at all.
i had to say, "doesn't my skin look good?"
she said, "it always looks good. your skin has looked good since you were a teenager and i made you drink lots and lots of water." needless to say, she didn't notice that i lost my nosepin in the swimming pool either. what i notice is the big dark circles under my eyes have faded, the hollows in my cheeks and forehead have filled in. last check, the sun damage was greatly reversed, the circulation was improved all over my face. my upper lip pulled back up.
mary thinks i've taken 10 years off my face.
as i am typing, zarina and rara just came over and stared at me and said, "your skin is so oily!" (just slathered on the night cream and eye cream. i swear, this product works but it IS high maintenance. thank god i live with three teenaged girls and not a man because he would walk out the door - i would).
tomorrow is day 30. the moment (or photograph) of truth.
also day 29, i still have enough product to probably last me another 2 to 3 weeks, so it's less expensive than $2,000 a month.
if i had the money and the time to do this to my face forever, i probably would. mary's going to keep testing my face to see if the effects last over six months.
in the meantime, back to gossip girl and being low-maintenance, except for $1,500 a month worth of vitamins and supplements and psychic healing.
