“the finest clothing made is a person’s own skin, but, of course, society demands something more than this.” // m. twain
it always at this point in the year that the irony dawns on me – that at its coldest, winter will make your skin as dry a desert lizard.
i can feel my skin fracture when i stretch; it has become dull, rough, and a white dust – like chalk, has settled on to its surface. yet, it seems no amount of moisture can bridge the gap, my skin has become too dehydrated, too scaly to keep up with any amount of lotion or cream; and i’m starting to feel a little defeated. that doesn’t mean i’ll stop trying, it just means i’ll need to find more space in my bathroom cupboards, it’s getting crowded in there.
