Yay four day weekend for us college kids without a Friday class. Thank goodness for labor day, I really needed break. The week wasn’t to bad and this weekend I got quite a bit done. Friday Gabby and went to Seven Mile Café, a really cool little coffee shop. And then got pizza before going home. Saturday was a lot of fun, we went to the farmers market and did some exploring downtown. Now, I love to explore but thanks to the Doxycycline my skin will feel like it’s on fire. I almost never get sunburned, maybe right in the beginning of the summer but it is never sever. So we all know what a sunburn feels like, but this is different. My skin is tingly, burning and itching all at the same time. And while I wear shorts it’s my arms that are effected. When I forget and scratch my arms I almost want to start crying. Now while my skin feels like I have an extreme sunburn that would peal that isn’t the case. I am left with a nice darker tan as if it were any other summer day. Sunday I went and bought some sunscreen, I decided to go natural since my skin has been itching (under arms, legs and shoulders). When I leave to walk to a coffee shop around 3:00pm I had barely been out 5 minutes when I felt like I was on fire again. I don’t think that heat is the trigger, since being in the shade even is for a minute causes the pain to subside. Now I believe that when it gets cooler this symptom will lessen since the sun will be less intense. When reading what I should I saw that I should wear hats, long-sleeves and long pants. But of course it’s August in Texas, which means it get’s up to 100 degrees regularly. So how am I meant to cover my whole body and walk around campus without passing out! I am drinking a great deal of fluids and I will do my best to cover my arms, hopefully that helps.
So now that I bored you with the tiny details of my weekend and pesky skin problems, I am wondering if someone will help me find the right information about clay baths? I tried one the other day but I feel like I am missing something. When I try to mix the clay I can’t get it smooth at all. I am about to do some research in hopes that I can figure it out! please though if you have any information, resources or suggestions please share!
