Day 20

Day 20.  I thought that I was over this so-called "purge," but I have had a few breakouts.  Strangely, when they appear they are just red little macules that aren't fluctuant or painful.  Then they go away.  I did have one massive white-head on my left jawline.  I went three days without messing with it and it just got bigger and bigger over a tender area of skin (think neck-like skin).  So, I gently helped it out with a few cotton-tips this morning because I couldn't stand the pressure anymore.  If this is the purge (and I think it is), it's really not terrible like I had expected.
 
I'm only wearing lightly-tinted sunscreen (EltaMD physical) these days.  It makes it easier to apply throughout the day.  I just powder on top.  I'm also trying to keep make-up to a bare minimum.  Concealer and foundation was never a miracle-worker and even the best make-up was no match for my oily skin.  So, I'm going to clear up and then return to light make-up.
