I made it to the bathroom but not in time to lock myself inside. So I leaped in the bathtub and tried hiding lamely behind the curtain. He jumped in after me and slammed me to the shower wall tickling my ribs. His face was all red and gooey. I looked up and noticed that the shower head was the detachable kind with a hose. Thinking quickly I reached to grab it with one hand and blasting the cold water with the other. He was soaking wet and the bathtub floor was now red. Archer made a weird grunt noise and grabbed for the hose which only made us wetter. I ducked under his arms, out of the tub, and ran toward the living room laughing.

BE PREVENTATIVE & START NOW. A frequent misconception is that you should only start using eye cream once your skin starts to show signs of visible aging. Even if fine lines and wrinkles really aren’t your main concern, you should absolutely still be using an eye cream regularly in order to keep your under-eye skin hydrated. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR SPECIFIC CONCERNS. Not all eye creams are created equal. While using pretty much any eye cream is better than using none, you aren’t doing the most for your skin if you’re using a cream that isn’t meant to address your specific skin care concerns. For example, if your biggest concern is dark circles, using a cream that’s focused on puffiness doesn’t make a ton of sense.
