I am so tired of acne. Last night I was so depressed about things that had happened that day that I kind of took it out on my skin. AKA i picked it to DEATH.
BUT...supprisingly it doesnt look like it?!?!?!?!!? Like there's redness but no little bubbly white heads or huge swelling on the ones that wouldn't pop. I have no idea why that happened, but I am sooo thankful!
Needless to say. I am still trying to do the no picking thing. Its so hard to do it with the ones that hurt tho! And that I know will go away faster if I pop them. But, I'm still going to try. Because its so gross if you think about it.
I'v been dealing with alot of dryness lately, I think it's because of both the sulfer and AHA products I'v been using. But I'v been countering this with Cerava (or Cerave..can't remember the right spelling lol ) and its helped a whole lot. I love that lotion.
My "bacne" is really doing better! I have one or two spots that the AHA cream and the Body Clear salacylic acid 2% body wash together are taking care of super fast! The AHA is really helping with my scars as well. I can notice improvement every few days. I try to apply the AHA morning and night, but sometimes I don't have time.
Another wonderful thing I have been doing is mixing a few drops of Lavender oil (anti viral, anti fugal, anti inflamatory) and Jojobia oil together and putting that on and letting it soak in before I moisterize sometimes. Aka when I'm not going to be wearing make up. I don't know if it would make me greasey but I dont want to take the chance.
I'm also using the Nuetrogena liquid sunblock pure screen thing that's just come out. I think it's like 7% titanium dioxide and 3 or 4% zinc oxide, doesnt clog pores etc and you can put under make up and moisterizers. Its SPF 55 which I love and it's working really good for me so far. It does leave a bit of a white cast but since I 'm as pale as the moon its fine. Plus when you moisterize it goes away.
Weight and Exercise wise I am 150 and have been making a effort to exercise and eat right but I havn't really been sticking with it. I also have been slacking on my water intake. It all makes me feel like a faiture. And I know I'm the only that can stop it. I wish I would.
Not so Delightfully, Me
