I was furious this morning.
I've since been told that there was a fire at the garage, which probably screwed up the times. It helps a bit to know why the bus screwed me over this morning, though OC Transpo has successfully screwed me over for no reason before this. I'm less inclined to be furious with them this morning that I otherwise would.
Strangely... or not, for those who know me well... I'm still having issues coming out of my temper. It may have something to do with my skin, which is, as of right now, stinging and itching like crazy.
Well, I started using a new moisturiser and it gave me chemical burns. Yup. My arms, my legs and other places are red, painful and itchy as all get out. It's better today. I had a bath in baking soda water yesterday, on the doctor's orders. It helped a little.
I've also, of course, stopped using the moisturising cream. For the moment, I'm using coconut oil as a moisturiser. It's odd, and I'm not sure it's effective. I'll try it out for a while and see. Things to note about using coconut oil:
It is so much fun to put on, oh my goodness! You get a solid piece, apply it to your skin, and it just melts. Moisturising is not fun, but putting coconut oil on is actually kind of fun.
I can't tell if its working or not, so I can't speak to that yet. That said, it doesn't absorb so easily. It takes its time. That said, it might just be because it's working against my burnt skin. My hands, which thankfully didn't burn, don't feel slippery at all.
People with dry skin, does it take longer for really dry skin to absorb any kind of moisture? It seems counter-intuitive, but that has always been my experience.
And one last thing I've noticed, which I can't tell if it's a good thing or not, is that I smell like a tasty, tasty coconut lolly.
I better not wear this during the apocalypse, as those horrible people who turn cannibalistic will probably want to eat me....
Has anyone else had experience with using coconut oil as a moisturiser? Any tips? How was your experience?
Now I must go do work.
