Yesterday I tried this new sunscreen…
Pure & Free my A$$!!!
… and now my face is puffy and swollen. I’ve taken quite a bit of Benadryl so I’m hoping that I won’t fall asleep as I write this post lol. Note: I am 97% sure that this sunscreen is the culprit because only my face, not my body, has had an allergic reaction and I didn’t have anything else on my face but my moisturizer, which I’ve been using for months.
Anyways, I’m still quite sore from yoga on Monday with Heather, who might I add, is super awesome! We met up at Garden State Yoga and took a hot yoga class together. I really liked that the yoga class was structured in a way where you didn’t feel forced to do all the poses. I have learned 2 very important things from my first hot yoga class:
1. Do NOT wear lotion on any part of your body because it will make it very hard to do some of the poses (i.e. eagle pose).
2. HYDRATE! HYDRATE! HYDRATE!
Oh and before I sign off (feeling very sleepy right now), I went to Sephora today and asked for 2 samples of their most popular sunscreens for sensitive skin. The salesman recommended: Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream For Face SPF 55 and Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector SPF 40. So now I have 2 generously sized samples of sunscreen which I will test out after my face goes back to normal. I LOVE that Sephora gives away free samples of their products at the stores because then you can try em’ before you buy em’ . I’m crossing my fingers and hoping that one of the two sunscreens will work for me.
