She Bang

Yes, this is the third post in a row about my zit. I know, it is scintillating. Please do not send me notes about magic zit potions or toothpaste or dancing naked under a full moon while singing Smoke on the Water, because I have tried them all and they have served only to anger the zit and not to reduce it in any way. The only options at this point are a mask or bangs. I do not have a mask or bangs. (Other things I do not have: decent lighting in my kitchen, the ability to take self-portraits, enough sleep (clearly, oh my god), any make-up, or apparently any vanity.)

Here's my attempt at a hair-shield containment system.

Now tell me truth... I should go buy a mask, right?

You are hilarious.

The mask might work but don't go to the bank!
At least yours is on your forehead and semi-disguiseable. mine(two of them) are around my nose--no choice but a mask or act as if they are not there. Oh- and I'm 36 so things don't necessarily improve. Sorry about that.

That's actually really cute, a little Audrey Hepburnesque, don't you think?

oh and as a middle aged zit getter (everything from pesky little ones to full blown cystic), I recommend Neutrogena acne wash and the Proactive mask. You can get Proactive at the mall kiosks. Also, if you get really bad cystic zits, you know the ones that have their own heartbeat? Call the dr and ask for a cortizone shot in the zit.

I swear you could pass for 21. Which makes me hate you a little bit, I hope that doesn't affect our friendship.

i like the hair containment system. i think it's working. i'll be doing the same thing in a couple months when i start the post-baby balding...

No, no. I like the Donald Trump comb over! It's a natural on you!

I actually think your hair looks cute this way, zit or no. As long as it doesn't drive you crazy by touching your face when you are not used to having hair touch your face, I think you've found the perfect solution!

I like the hair shield. I think it is kinda hip.

Yep, your hair DOES look cute like this! I think you've found your solution.

i realize this will likely ruin our blogfriendship, and i really hate to do this...but you actually do kind of already have a mask:

(sorry!!!) (i know how much you abhor the character.) :)

Love it!

your adorable....seriously think you need to consider getting some side swoop bangs...love it :-)

Shields up, red alert!

No really, nice Hair Shield!

The bangs are cute, wear them if you want, but don't let that zit screw with you! Most of us would love to have your complexion.

That's probably one of the more attractive comb-overs I've ever seen. I'm not exactly sure how, but it seems to work.

That's actually super cute. You should get bangs.

I think you look totally adorable. So there :P

I like the hairstyle! I feel for you with the zit problem...it is total b.s.
I think the only thing that is worse for me is a cold sore---no hairstyle will hide that nasty thing & it's freakin' herpes..ewww!
Here's hoping the "blemish" (my mom's word) clears up asap and that you are free and clear for a while.

Hey... when I pondered having bangs... my hair dresser said how long do you like them...

... and I said "a GOOD 20 minutes!"

and he laughed and laughed! ! !

Zits will come and some will go... that photo will last forever...

THANKS for sharing...

I'm impressed, somehow a comb-over works on you, Nice. and clever.

Ohhhh... tres chic!

Don't even see the zit. And you are smokin' hot.

omg! I love the 'do! You remind me of, um, oh, what is her name?! Famous actress in Million Dollar Baby. Damn. I forget what else she's in, but lots of stuff. And the 'do reminds me of her! (That is a compliment.)

Beth, you are beautiful despite your pimple. If it is truly infected and not going away- then get some prescription antibiotic stuff.

Cute bangs. You should really cut them and join Whoorl's blunt brigade.

I like the bangs! And you are looking so thin. Bee-atch.

I am addicted to chap stick and altoids.
I am freakishly flexible.
