Skydiving At Perris

Extreme Beauty Tips For Skydivers

Skydiving is one of my true passions. Unfortunately you can achieve an extreme level of nastiness partaking in this fun pastime.

Just as sure as you can bet on afternoon dust devils, you will get sunburned, you will sweat, your hair will get tangled, you will get funky-dirty, you will get bruised, scraped, bloody, every molecule of sunblock you have carefully placed on your body will be obliterated, you will get bad breath from the mouth dryness and you will more than likely at least a couple of times per day have concentrated nasal mucous (a nice way of putting it) stuck like glue to the tip of your nose, in your nasal passages, coating your goggles and anything else that was above your nose during free fall. How in the heck does one remain sexy with all of that going on??
