I'm 100% Greek.
This isn't anything new.
What also isn't new is that stereotypically Greeks are known to be hairy.
Thankfully, I am not and my fabulous waxer Kate from Zen Metro Spa can confirm this for you. (tmi?)
Anyways where I'm going with this is that I do not have a mustache and any random hairs I do have up there I take care of. (tmi? again? Ladies, you know what I'm talking about, don't lie.)
But recently now that summer has come and I've been spending more time in the sun catching some prime time rays (PTRs, fyi), and I've noticed that the skin above my upper lip has started getting darker than the rest of my face - like lots of freckles.
Which, from a far looks like... well, you know what.
So, yesterday at my Thea's house I was complaining to my cousin Cathi about how my skin is getting unevenly darker in places specifically above my lip and she's like, "Oh, I know exactly what you're talking about, I had the same problem as I got older".
Great, as she got older...
Basically she told me that she has to always put SPF 55 above her lip to prevent that from happening.
Awesome, add it to the list of wrinkle creams, night creams, pore shrinkers and anti aging remedies.
I'm sooooooooooooooooooo looking forward to my 31st birthday that's coming up in a few weeks - can't you tell?
