“My skin,” my friend told me, “feels like an old piece of flannel.” “Precisely!” I exclaimed. I’d been searching for the right way to describe my dull, uneven, bumpy skin for ages. My skin condition changed for the worse around the time I came down from the high/low of two pregnancies in less than two years, the births of two beautiful, healthy babies, and a whole heck of a lot of breastfeeding. I’d been unsettled by the redness, breakouts, and newly discovered fine lines. Where had I gone wrong?
