I Started Moisturizing Consistently With Aveeno And Now The Skin Under My Eyes No Longer Looks Like A Ballsack

I Started Moisturizing Consistently With Aveeno And Now The Skin Under My Eyes No Longer Looks Like A Ballsack

I think this is mostly a problem for males in their 20s. We are an inherently lazy subset of people. Or maybe I’m just an idiot and am actually alone on this, but for the longest time I simply did not care if my hands and face were drier than the Sahara.

Part of me not caring about dryness was the fact that adding an additional step to my morning routine was out of the question. Thirty extra seconds of rubbing lotion into my face, palms, and elbows may not seem like much, but when you’re perpetually late for work, don’t really care about your appearance while in the office, and will do anything to not add extra work for yourself, trust me, those thirty seconds each morning add up. The other part of it was that the dryness usually only lasted for a few hours before my skin would recover. I’m a sloth by nature, what can I say?

Ice cube misses your glass when the refrigerator is dispensing it? Why would I pick that up when I can just kick it directly under the fridge and forget about it forever?

This is the kind of attitude I have about everything. Being lazy slowly but surely spills over into every activity that life throws at me and for a long time my lotion routine (outside of masturbation) was non existent simply because it was to much of a hassle. I also hated the feeling of having slippery fingertips when my hands would meet my keyboard or twist a door knob.

Girls are extremely diligent when it comes to skincare routines and moisturizing when they wake up, while at the office, and at night before bed is a critical part of that.

When I’d head south for a vacation and would inevitably get sunburnt, I’d lather up with aloe vera but that was the extent of any sort of skin routine for yours truly. I just didn’t care about it.

If I had dry or flaky skin I’d leave it alone until it just went away and I’m sure there have been days where people are looking at my face with utter confusion - “Goddamn look how dry that poor man’s face is! He must have fallen on hard times if he can’t afford a decent bottle of lotion.” But I haven’t fallen on hard times. I’m just a piece of shit when it comes to moisturization.

Up until January 1st when I decided I needed to make some changes to my life, I wasn’t concerned with dry skin. NOW I AM.

I don’t know if it’s been especially dry this winter in Chicago, but my face has been more flaky and sandpaper-esque than I can ever remember it being.

The skin directly underneath my eyes was flaking, looking like a senior citizen’s ballsack and begging for moisture, and finally I decided to do a little research. I settled on Aveeno, a lotion brand that promises smooth skin and is approved by dermatologists to be safe to put on your face. I can even rub it on my hands when they start feeling cracked or dry and that greasy feeling doesn’t stick around much longer than a few seconds.

Outside of not drinking, moisturizing my face has been the best resolution I’ve made. Aveeno - sponsor my motherfucking blog.
