While I don’t have dry skin, I do know how it feels to have one. At one stage, my cheeks were so dry and tight, I felt like they’d cracked when I smiled. It was awful.

Once a while, I’ll receive an email that leaves me shaking with anger and seething with rage. When that happens, I’ll want to talk about it. Well, I’d received something in my inbox that’s so brazen, it hit a raw nerve. I was contemplating if I should blog about it but when I received that same email again yesterday, I knew I couldn’t keep mum.

Oh wow, Huffington Post really made a big deal out of Michelle Phan’s lack of morning facial washing routine. The whole headline just screamed, “Michelle Phan: I don’t wash my face in the morning”. Many of her young followers going through their puberty and following her advice based on that headline might just end up wondering why their skin isn’t half as nice as hers. What they don’t realize is that she is saying one thing but doing something else.
