It's day 26 today. My skin has been pretty dry for a week now. I use cetaphil moisturizing creme (in the tub) on my face, and sometimes a thin layer of aquaphor on super dry spots at nighttime. My skin looks sunburnt and I hate that the most out of all of this. I can deal with the dryness (which I actually like because I am an oil slick normally) and I can deal with the initial breakouts too. But the sunburnt look just sucks. Makeup doesn't even really help it as much as I hope it would. My lips are very chapped and I need to have aquaphor on my lips at all times.
Other than that, all is well. I had my bloodwork done yesterday, so I will hear back from my doctor if anything is not right.
[b]The following are pictures from day 12. I was in the process of my initial breakout, and I was trying hard to keep my head up through it all [img]http://www.acne.org/messageboard//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img] I found that taking pictures with flash was the best way to show the state of my skin. So don't mind the peach fuzz and other gross stuff lol[/b]
[b]The following are pictures from day 22. My skin looks a lot better here, and seems to be healing. I still get breakouts, but not as bad as the ones from the initial breakout[/b]
[b]I will try to update every 10 days or so...or more lol. I tend to put things off. Cheers![/b]
