About Face — My Journey From Fear To Facial Fan Girl
Every time I decide to indulge and visit a spa, I book a massage. And after every visit I tell myself that next time I’ll book a facial — my skin desperately needs it. But nonetheless, time and again, I find myself booking a massage instead. I’m paranoid about people irritating my skin, I’m not particularly enthused about extractions (too painful!), and despite what I know to be the incredible effects of facials (I am, of course, encouraged by the thought of a youthful, glowing complexion), I just never manage to make it over the hump to book myself some much needed skin care.
