We are carbo-loading beyond belief, indulging in “emotional eating” that is particularly pronounced among quarantined children.
Our faces are a mess. We have “maskne” — blemishes related to the trapping of oil against the skin behind our face masks — and we’re piling on skin-care remedies because we’re bored and need to do something. (Right?)
Here’s the clinical description, per the WSJ: “Doctors said acne flare ups and other skin ailments such as psoriasis and eczema are surging as the health crisis causes stress levels to skyrocket and upends eating, sleeping and hygiene routines.”
We are grumpy, not getting enough sleep, drinking too much, missing our friends and colleagues, sick of seeing ourselves on Zoom, and … oh gosh. (Please insert your own gripes and comments here.)
