In my other life I spend days digging trenches, shooting at silhouettes, and making sure my ducklings are all in a row. My nails get dirty and my cuticles torn; my skin burned by sand and wind. I get an opportunity to shop in foreign lands and eat eccentric foods, at least for my palate. I’m an Army reservist, a Soldier; some would call me one of America’s many heroes. In response I simply say, “Thank you,” and “Sure!”
I enjoy living two lives. One as a tough, war fighting Soldier on the weekends, and the other as a fashionista during the week and after 1700 hrs. (5 p.m.) on the weekends. Most don’t believe I joined the military, let alone the Army; they don’t let you wear earrings in uniform. However as a military brat it called to me, especially when my super exclusive membership card (my dependent ID) was revoked.
I’ve been in two wars in the past 5 years, and it has been wear and tear on my skin. I work extra hard to reduce my pores and keep my pretty hands! I exfoliate as often as possible, wear gloves when my Soldiering duties have me out in the elements, and visit the spa when my at home routines need a little kick.
So without further ado:
|Clean Hands... Clean Face|
I do this before I wash my face everyday! And sometimes I’m surprised at how dirty my hands actually are. Especially after a day of being a Soldier out in the field.
