NaPoWriMo #19 – Regimen for Clear Skin

Regimen for Clear Skin

It’s easy:

Apply freshly squeezed lemon
to face and neck for 10 minutes, mix with
raw honey and slash or sugar. Use Greek Yoghurt
and lukewarm Rose Water, mix flour
and lime juice into a paste, oatmeal and turmeric,
afterwards rinsing with cold water, apply
for 20 to 25 minutes, use an exfoliator
and moisturizer, puree fresh tomatoes with
a drop of vinegar or baking soda, massage into pores,

don’t touch your face, pat dry with a soft towel,
try retinoids, try salicylic acid, try benzoyl peroxide,
try unpasteurized goats milk, my dermatologist
swears by Himalayan salt scrubs and a rotating brush
with adjustable bristle strength, coconut oil
wiped away with cotton wool, try not being stressed,

have sex, no seriously, but wash your face before and after,
drink water and a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar,
get plenty of sleep, wash your hair, have a balanced diet consisting
of watercress and fish, avoid oils, exercise daily,
avoid sweating, get plenty and not too much sunlight,
don’t wear makeup when you were 15, don’t get
pregnant or go through puberty, see your GP
and counsellor and sales advisor from Lush,

be at peace with the world, earn a good salary,
have healthy genetics, be consistent, understand
your skin’s pH balance, go on a detox by drinking
a glass of warm lemon water each morning, listen
to relaxing music, read books, visit a spa,
go on holiday, use a fragrance free detergent,
reduce your iodine intake, avoid smoking pollution
and alcohol, drink wine, clean your pillow case phone
hat hair clothes bangs hands but not too much,

and if none of this works,
be born with clear skin.
