Ok so I started a whole makeover process this week. Skin, hair, weight loss. So I decided to update you guys on the products I am using as well.
Weightloss: NatureWise Green Coffee bean extract
have not changed my diet as of yet so its just the pills. I am hoping that these pill do not negative affect myskin
I started at 121.4 lbs Goal 114lbs
Day 1:121.4 lbs****Sept 11/Day 2 : 120 lbs****Day 3: 118.8 lbs*****Day 4: 119 lbs******Sept 14/Day 05: 119 lbs***
Hair: Mega Tek
This is a product for mane and tail regrowth in horses but people claim that that it helps grow your hair super fast and fill in bald spot. I have thick hair I just want longer healthier hair. I got the product Thursday.I mixed it with 2oz caster oil and 2 oz Mega Tek in an applicator bottle in an applicator bottle. I applied it to my scalp and then applied coconut oil to the rest of my hair and put it in a plastic cap and slept in it and washed it out in the morning. I realized that I used too much caster oil and only need a total of 3 oz to over my scalp. I will be using this treatment once a week and will update you as soon as I see results. I also started taking garlic oil supplements to prevent shedding
Now to the important stuff!!I am now on day 34 of my journey. Day 29 I woke up with horrible peeling. I washed my face in the shower and when I got out my face was raw and red. I have had to stop using tretinion for a few days and had to moisturize which caused some breakouts. Of course I had to pick and and pop them which led to ugly scabby things. This week I honestly felt super discouraged. I continue to break out and my little white bumps/ flesh colored bumps don't seem to be any better. Now my cheeks have scabs and a ton of hyper pigmentation and red marks. So Friday I used lime juice and Vitamin C Serum to try to treat my red spot and.... Today, Sunday, my face seems so much better. The redness has gotten so much better and I have no new big breakouts. Today I decided I was going to dedicate my day to my skin. I woke up washed my skin and did a baking soda mask then an egg and honey mask. I also got my dermaroller and numbing cream in the mail. I decided to use it today. I used the numbing cream which helped a little but it still hurt. My face is super red and feels stingy. I followed it with the Vitamin C serum and moisturizer.
I am not sure how my skin is going every time I seem to see a light at the end of the tunnel it gets dark again. I am hopeful and discouraged
