I think Yasmin and I are fighting

So despite my best sunscreening efforts, I have to face the fact that I am to be again accompanied this summer by the sheer awesomeness that is Melasma, aka The Mask of Pregnancy.

So help me, I'm starting to look like Adolph Hitler.

Now, I could be wrong here. But isn't the point of birth control to actually reduce the similarities you share with pregnant women? Because I kind of thought that was what it was for.

Here's an awesome pic of last summer's version. And I bet you just thought I had a wicked 5 o'clock shadow . . .

You know, on that link you included, it says that megadoses of sulfur can help some people. Sure, you may have upset stomach, headaches, (diarrhea), and a host of other problems, but your photos would look faaaaahhh-bulous.

Averaging 5 plus days between posts? I say you ARE pregnant.

Sorry, STM. It's not pregnancy, it's just laziness and occasionally busy-ness.

Laura Mercier concealer. Seriously. That stuff is MAGIC

If you were pregnant you'd be posting more becuase you'd have a heck of a lot more to complain about/say. Also, you'd be too sick and miserable to leave the house so you'd be internet bound. :) Pregnancy is so fun! You and Yasmin work through your difficulties. I didn't even notice the manface today.

I have that problem and I'm not even ON birth control. The sun aggravates it, and yet, I love to be in the sun. I want to have a t-shirt printed that says 'This is not really a mustache it's just years of tanning'. Do you know anyone who could help me with that?

although the whole idea behind hormonal birth control is to fake like you're already pregnant so your body doesn't keep trying to get you pregnant. so it uh seems to be working. yay for hormones.

well, if it makes you feel any better, i can't really notice anything.

yasmin and i fought bitterly as well for awhile, so i feel your pain.


also, i feel the need to tell you that the engagement photo story was 100percent true. i couldn't make this stuff up.

i've had a line of this under my nose/above my lip since child #4. i feel like i have a mustache. although my dermatologist didn't use a wood lamp to diagnose it.

Yasmin is the best thing that ever happened to me. I used to get cramps so bad that I would pass out, and as soon as I went on Yasmin they were completely gone. I think that maybe I am too fair to grow a feasible mustache though
