I think for a week or so I'll just wash my face and moisturise at night. Nothing else. And I NEED that moisturiser. it's the only thing that soothes. It feels like i'm badly sunburned. my skin hurts and it burns when I touch it.
I put my retin a on tonight and I washed it off a few minutes ago before I decided to write this post. the medication can't work for everyone. That's why there're so many, and it's really working against me. Its done nothing but make my skin progressively worse and it's been four months.
I think i'm just going to revisit what I did when my skin was not as bad. My skin was never clear but there were times when I just had mild acne and I just want to see if I can go back to that. I might just have to accept that I won't have clear skin until I move to a country where I can find an actual dermatologist which won't be for a few years but maybe I can go back to just having mild and not severe acne like I do now.
And I'm still depressed. Havent had a good night's sleep in weeks. Haven't felt like walking outside and seeing people in a while.
