Sometimes it takes a little person coming into your life to see yourself from a different perspective. Growing up, I hated my freckles and found nothing cute about them. I was actually pleased as they became less pronounced with age. But then I had Maddie, who, I kid you not, is the cutest little girl (I am objective, of course); and though she looks like her dad, the freckles are all mine.
Now I see that yes, my mom was right, they are cute and youthful, and there is something mischievous about them. So when I tell Maddie her freckles are adorable, I mean it. And I no longer hate mine. There is nothing like being comfortable in the skin you’re in. Take care of it.
Which brings me to a question I get a lot – what about sun screen? ASL does not contain sun protection, so you’ll need to use your favorite sun screen AFTER ASL has been absorbed.
I hope you embrace your idiosyncrasies or your own "little Maddie" can make you see yourself in a different light.
