Day 55-I Had A Few Clear Skin Days! Woohoo

Posted by purpleamethyst, 01 November 2011 · 278 views

In the last week I had a few days with NO new spots! This is the first time this has happened since I was twelve! Sadly I got 3 yesterday because I used a different moisturiser and it broke me out. Just on a whim I tried a really rich one that I bought for my daughter's eczema and it made me greasy and spotty. I've gone back to my usual stuff now...

Day 44 Reducing The Amount Of Bp

Posted by purpleamethyst, 21 October 2011 · 236 views

I'm so fed up with this site losing my entries all the time. I don't know how much time I've wasted typing things up just for them to disappear.

Anyway, I'm sorry I haven't written in a while, being away on holiday got me out of the habit.

Currently my skin looks almost normal again. I finally got rid of most of the dryness by reducing the BP...

Day 33-Bp Once A Day?

Posted by purpleamethyst, 10 October 2011 · 319 views

Why does this website keep screwing up? My blog entries keep disappearing while I write them! So annoying.

I arrived in Scotland after an 8 hour drive and the first thing my mum says to me is "Wow, you're so spotty". Thanks very much. There was me thinking my skin was a bit better! I did have about 3 spots but she must have been looking...

Day 31-Survived The Exfoliation

Posted by purpleamethyst, 08 October 2011 · 253 views

I probably won't be doing much blogging over the next week as I'm on holiday visiting my parents in Scotland/attending a friend's wedding but will try to give at least one update.

The day after my recent exfoliation horror wasn't as bad as I'd thought it would be, I didn't get more red or spotty but just felt like my skin was burning with the BP. All the...

Day 29- Ouch, Don't Do What I Just Did!

Posted by purpleamethyst, 06 October 2011 · 276 views

A lesson learned. DON'T EXFOLIATE ON THE REGIMEN!!! After resisting for so long I stupidly got my clarisonic out and exfoliated the crap out my skin. I did get loads of gunk out, but some of it was only partially out of my pores so I decided to pick....and squeeze! The next error was putting BP onto my red raw face and it really hurt!...

Day 28-Not Too Bad

Posted by purpleamethyst, 05 October 2011 · 215 views

After all my makeup shopping yesterday I looked so dolled up, I even had smoky dramatic eyes! I would have put false lashes on if I had somewhere to go to. Sadly, hubby was not in the mood for any fun at all as he got food poisoning from having eggs benedict for breakfast with his boss. When it came to taking the makeup off I was reminded of how I...

Day 27- Makeup For A Wedding

make up
I just suddenly remembered that I have a wedding in Scotland mid October and I will need to find makeup that will work on my 'new' skin. Gulp. Although my skin doesn't look that dry anymore, any attempt to use makeup shows up any previously invisible flakes. None of my existing stuff is working so I went to a giant Boots store today to have a look. Nothing...

Day 26-It's So Hard Not To Exfoliate

Posted by purpleamethyst, 03 October 2011 · 330 views

As a makeup and product junkie I am trying SO hard to resist all my lovely bottles of foundation, exfoliators and face masks. Maybe it's just the nice packaging, or maybe it's all the remaining miniscule bits of dry skin tempting me. Perhaps I should hide everything or chuck it all away! At least I'm getting better at not picking so much.


Day 25-Wow! Sudden Clearing Overnight!

Posted by purpleamethyst, 02 October 2011 · 221 views

It's been about 4 days of using the full amount of Dan's BP with jojoba oil and my skin suddenly almost cleared last night. Today I have about 4 spots but they're healing ones, not new ones. I'm so astonished! The Cetaphil cleanser seems to be helping too as it doesn't strip my skin and is really gentle. I can't contribute any improvement to the...

Week 4. Magical Jojoba Oil!

jojoba oil
Oh my goodness, I didn't realise how amazing jojoba oil was! I had used it before as a body moisturiser but not on my face as I didn't really know how to use it properly. About 4 days ago I stared mixing it into my moisturiser and within about a day my skin stopped looking like a flaky red pastry and was almost normal! I wish I'd used it earlier, it...
