Day 1,037:

Not much to post about lately. Obviously. I'm still sticking with my Dove Sensitive Skin bar/Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner (with AHA and BHA)/Acne.org BP/(sometimes) Cetaphil moisturizer routine, and it's working fairly well.

Yes, I still get some clogged pores, and yes, I still break out sometimes. But, for the most part, my...

Day 950:

Whelp, I jinxed it. I have a sore pink zit on my forehead. Luckily, my bangs cover it pretty well. But still. Ugh. I just went over my whole face with my toner, and dabbed some BP on the zit. I hope it dies soon.

I don't think I'd be doing as well as I have been with my skin if I still had my 8x or 10x or whatever it was magnifying mirror...

Oh, Mr. Postman, Look And See. Is There A Camera (Oh, Yeah) In Your Bag For Me?

Day 946:

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I just wanted to say that I realize that my current regimen is no longer The Regimen. I do still use Acne.org BP, and I do use a more generous amount than most other brands recommend. I also still make an effort to be as gentle as I can when I'm washing my face, and keep my...

Day 925:Wow, I'm actually really digging this toner. My skin feels wayyyy smoother, and it's been completely clear for about a week (except for one tiny clogged pore that went away pretty quickly, and the still-fading-but-already-pale-pink mark on my right cheek), which is, like, amazing, considering the past few months.So, generally, my current...

Day 908:

Okay. So. The horns didn't get too terrible, but they did leave pink marks. And I'm still struggling with that cluster of clogged pores on my right cheek. I swear, they've been there for months, so I keep picking at them, and they just get redder and redder and more and more splotchy looking. So I've been trying...

Day 902:

The Kooks: Naive. WTF?

Anyway, of course, right after I made that last post, I noticed two little clogged pores on my forehead. Which I had to pick at. Which, of course, made them worse. I look like I'm sprouting teeeeny little horns.

Fucking great.

Day 901:

I'm a little bit excited. I haven't had an AHA to use since The Swelling of '09, but now that it's getting colder, my skin is getting dryer (read: flakier), so I though I might look for an alternative to Dan's AHA.

I remembered that Wynne had a link...

Day 794.

Woof. I've been beyond busy with my new (okay, not so new any more) job. I've been stressed out, and my sleep schedule has gone to hell. And, to top it all off, I didn't get my period last month, which pretty much scared the crap out of me.

How has this affected my skin? Well, honestly, it hasn't been that bad.

I had two...

Day 753:

I'm testing the new spot treatment. It has AHA, BHA, and licochalcone in it, so I have to be super careful. I got it in the mail yesterday, and immediately applied a small amount to the inside of my elbow to see if I'd have a negative reaction. There was no redness or anything, so I applied a bit more to the same spot before I went to bed....

Woooo-ooh! Nobody Knows It!

Day 743:

Dear teeny scab from a long-dead cheek zit,

Please just heal up and go away. The way you're lingering is obnoxious. If it wasn't for you, my skin would be totally clear.

You're fucking everything up, goddamn it.


P.S. Okay, you're really not that bad, but still... Go away.

And in other news, I'll be...

Day 736:

Aww, phooey. I totally forgot to celebrate my two year Org-iversary. It was on the 2nd. Ah, well...

Anywho, I have a party to go to this Saturday at my aunt's house. Pretty much my whole family (on my dad's side) is going to be there, and I haven't seen some of these people in years, so I really want to look good, 'cause I know...

Day 726:

This post isn't acne-related at all. I'm just excited about my new haircut.

Day 723:

I'm hesitant to write this, because I know what kind of luck I have, but...

Victory is mine! *frenetically knocks on wood*

Looks like the combination of fresh BP and extra virgin olive oil has, once again, worked wonders to clear me up and fade my red marks.

Booyah! Sheryl's Deck Party, here I come!

Day 715:

Okay. So. After my last post, my face pretty much exploded. No, for real. The whole damn thing puffed up, then got all gross and grainy, then the grainy parts kind of ended up being, like, chock full of teeny-tiny whiteheads, then I peeled like a sonofabitch, and then I was left all broken out. Basically, my face was FUBAR for, like, a week and a...

Day 697:

Well, I'm going to try to add AHA back into my regimen, but I'm gonna have to be sneaky about it. As a first step, I just applied it all over my face, let it sit for about ten to fifteen minutes, then washed it off. My skin got a little pink while it was on, but quickly changed back to its normal color after I washed.

I'll see how my...

Day 682:

Wow, I am such a dummy.

I've been breaking out a bit for the past month or so, and I couldn't figure out why. I hadn't changed anything, and I couldn't figure out what the problem could possibly be.

Then, one day, I looked at my bottle of BP and realized that I'd had it since last May. It was almost a year old....

Day 666:

Well, I've decided to give the AHA another test run. I applied a tiny bit behind my right ear at about 2:05pm. It's now 2:21, and I haven't noticed much of a reaction. It's a little pink, but not the bright, raging pink that it turned last time. And it's not really burning or stinging this time. I just feel a slight tingling...

Day 658:

Dear PMS,

Thank you so much for the breakout. The bloating, tender breasts, and irritability really would've been enough, but you went above and beyond by giving me not one, not two, but three pimples!

You really are too generous.

Love forever,

P.S. Do you understand sarcasm, PMS? I hope you do. ; )

Day 652:

Why do I do this to myself? My skin will be looking great, but then I get all stupid and pull out my 10x magnifying mirror and I pick at my pores. They don't even have to be clogged--in a 10x magnifying mirror every pore looks huge and terrible.

So now I've got three red marks on the left side of my lower lip, and two red marks on...
