Return of the Rotting Zombie Flesh

This is practically normal... right? Maybe? I dunno, I try to tell myself that OTHER people get rotting zombie flesh now and again, but it just doesn't seem to be the case. Which makes me feel so very alone...
This has happened before. In Canada one summer my face kept getting dryer and dryer, even with the extra moisturizer I kept slathering on, and eventually became rotting zombie-esque. Then I realized, to my dismay, it was my MOISTURIZER doing it! The fiend! It was mega-old and something had happened to it, probably some complicated chemical thing I could never describe accurately, that made it turn to the dark side. I stopped using it... But it was too late. I spent the next week or so with my face looking like it was dying.
It has happened again. I went for a new face washer thing described as "getting rid of extra oil". Sounded good enough, right? No oil, no acne, everyone's happy. Except... except it was a face washer from HELL. And now... RETURN OF THE ZOMBIE FLESH!! (dun dun dunnn!)
Does this ever happen to anyone but me? Or am I just special? Maybe I secretly AM a zombie and I just don't realize it. I could be in the next Twilight-like craze, only with brain-eating monsters! Hip hip hooray!
... Oh, gosh, my face hurts. My zombie Edward better be flippin' worth it.

  1. We are so much more alike than I thought. Only, I always feel like a zombie face. I knew a girl on my mission that had it worse. Dryness and red patches all over her body. I guess I should count my blessings. Remind me to tell you that story next week.
