I knew if I told mom about this, she’d send me a million solutions.
My mom has always been obsessed with ensuring she doesn’t age. I remember from a young age, she was always trying the latest skin care routines. Plus, she would spend so much money in beauty shops trying the latest finds in skin care. But, all of these couldn’t stop nature and eventually age did catch up with her. She doesn’t look bad at all but she is still obsessing in the same way. Seeing her so critical of her image made me rebel from a young age when she tried to influence me. I preferred simple routines of soap and water until I was in college. Now, I only do a simple skin care routine and it works perfectly for me. Last summer, I had some work done in my house. It was time to update the old air conditioner that came with the place when I bought it. The whole system cost quite a lot of money but it had to be done since the air conditioner kept needing repair. The HVAC experts came by and worked on the entire air conditioning system for two days. After that, I tested the unit and it worked quite well. After about a week, I began to notice my skin was getting quite dry. I knew if I told mom about this, she’d send me a million solutions. So instead I spoke to a friend who was a dermatologist. She asked me of any changes in my home and I informed her about the new air conditioner. My friend advised me to get a humidifier because the new and powerful system was removing all the humidity from the air causing my skin to dry.
