perfect skin

my skin is so freaking clear lately. it's awesome. i've had medium-bad skin ever since, oh, age 12 or whatever, which has been getting gradually clearer over time but not radically so. for the past maybe 5 years or so it's been pretty much at a plateau of one or two noticeable zits at a time (just shifting around my face in location). but ever since the minute i graduated law school, i've had a streak of steadily blemish-free skin that has mostly lasted the entire four months since.

(actually, it was maybe at 90% perfect for most of the summer, then after i got my facial a few weeks ago and started using my new $25 exfoliating face wash, it jumped up to like 95% perfection. thank you skinceuticals!)

theories as to the genesis of the overall improvement: decreased stress? switching to the round-the-clock birth control pill? i don't know, but i'm loving it. this girl at work said something in passing about how i have perfect skin, and that just made my week. i was like, "" but maybe it's true. :)

    y'know how they say *every time you lie, an angel gets its wings*? yeah, i think that's how it goes...anyway, i think somewhere, on the other side of the world, a baby got eaten by a great white shark. perfect ilona skin is just the universe trying to maintain balance. enjoy that skin of yours! --acc
