Day 6 go!I woke up this morning with my face feeling really tight. Not that unpleasant dry kind of tight, just different than usual. It was an odd feeling. I went through my usual morning thing and took my time getting to the bathroom just a bit ago. What a freaking difference! I couldn't believe it!Today, most of the small spots are totally gone, the medium sized ones are a lot smaller, and cyst-dude is practically GONE. I couldn't believe the change that happened just overnight. I really didn't do anything differently yesterday or last night, other than drinking more water (I actually got in that whole 8 glasses of water thing yesterday!) and I did a mild workout last night before bed for the first time in a while. Just Wii Fit, but that's aerobics all the same, right?? Maybe the extra hydration and working up a little sweat helped move things through my pores or something, who knows. I did shower last night before bed instead of in the AM, so maybe that made a difference as well. I'm going to try it again tonight and see if I can level up my face again tomorrow morning. :DA lot of redness is down as well today, though that seems to fluctuate throughout the day anyway. My skin is not really flaking at all, which is nice. Occasionally it just gets a little bit dry, but it's not like serious flaking. Although sometimes I wind up with bits in my eyes which makes them water like crazy, probably from the BP residue or something. Ow. D: The other thing that is driving me crazy is that horrible grungy skin feeling I get by the end of the day. I'm sure it's just from the layers of BP and moisturizer on my skin, along with dead skin, but ugh. It makes me feel like I haven't showered in days and is making me crazy. D: Regardless of the little annoyances, I'm so happy with the progress I've made already. Maybe my skin was in better shape than I though, or maybe I'm just doing something right this time around. This is about the level of progress I had during my first week with prescription stuff from the dermatologist, and I bounced back eventually (which I guess is normal) so I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high. Still, it makes me feel great to see such a rapid change. I plan to stick it out for a while, as close as I can get to clear. This is by far the cheapest and easiest method I've ever tried, and to see results so fast is a big motivator. I'm excited to get to Saturday so I can take pictures again and compare. Science!
