You’ve Been Washing Your Face Wrong Your Whole Life (And She Will Show You How To Do It Right)

As many of you know, I have skin problems (and have all my life), so one of my favorite activities is torturing myself on YouTube with tutorials on how to have perfect skin, by people who already have perfect skin. It’s a weird hobby, I know, but it brings me a great deal of masochistic pleasure.

Enjoy, and may you feel as badly about yourself as I do. TC mark
