( 2:26 PM ) teahouse
So last night as I was getting ready for bed, I went into the bathroom to put toner on my face.
It's just this bottle of mild pink solution into which I dip a cotton ball and then wipe all over my face. Usually the cotton ball turns black and then I look at it in horror, followed by relief that I got all of that dirt and makeup and sunscreen off my face.
Well, last night I did it quickly in the dark. After I finished brushing my teeth, I reached for where I always keep the bottle of toner, poured some on the cotton ball and rubbed it all over my face.
"Mmm..tingly..." I thought. Then I got into bed.
Five minutes later, I was screaming in agony.
I jumped out of bed, ran into the bathroom and flipped on the light.
Instead of the bottle of toner, I'd grabbed the bottle of nail polish remover. And that's what I'd slathered all over my face!
Yep, I think I gave myself a facial peel.
It actually looks pretty good. Well, what I can see of it through the stinging of my eyes.
And I think I took off one of my moles. #
