Not As Bad As It Could Be.

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!eusa_pray.gif

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 rolleyes.gif ) and its helped a whole lot. I love that lotion. wub.png

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.

Seems like you got lucky with the picking. I know that feeling of taking things out on your skin, it's a vicious cycle really because if it makes you feel worse then there's the potential to pick even more. Sounds like you're doing alright though and you're certainly not failing so give yourself a break. :)
