I had to rush out the door today with no time to do my hair or makeup or get all dressed up. I got hit on all evening. Really surprised and slightly confused since I don't get that much attention when I'm done up. Still, feeling better about things now.
My skin is looking better today. Lots of PIH though. No scarring which I'm grateful for. Only a couple of actives left. Been hammering the 10% BP and using it twice a day: my skin isn't permanently red and swollen like it was last time. Going to knock it down to a maintenance dose of 2.5% once I'm clear again.
I hope it calms down for you soon Lily. I think the stresses of Uni have a big part to play in creating acne; I'm in my final year now and it's made both my friends and I start breaking out again. I'm doing much the same things at the moment - wash, treatment (although I'm skipping on the moisturiser) and just hope it gets better soon. I'm quite lucky that most of my work is meant to be done at home so I can use BP quite frequently without worrying about anybody seeing the flakes etc.
The NHS can be useless with mental health issues. I used to suffer from post traumatic stress and despite having what appeared to be a breakdown in the GP's office, explaining how suicidal and aggressive I was feeling and then promptly storming off to a busy road when she wasn't treating me seriously enough I never got a referral for help, I just had to deal with it on my own.
Can't believe how great this new routine is working, & how FAST! If you want your blemishes to clear quickly, try beta carotene. I've never seen my pimples go away so fast.
This is only the 3rd day since I began using this treatment. Very happy & surprised by the results so far!
I am also limiting my dairy but I think the beta carotene is having a greater impact. Both are probably beneficial, however.
Also, NO NEW BREAKOUTS are forming. How fantastic!!! Feeling blessed!
I've started drinking a cup of peppermint and nettle tea a day. I figure that it won't reduce DHT by much, maybe just a little tiny bit. I've started on the BP again - a short term way of clearing up this breakout in time for my birthday.
Gunnke, what if one day someone out there is about to cross a busy road, they don't see a bus coming and you're destined to be next to them at the time to pull them back from danger and save their life?
That's just one example. There are countless others that are also possible. You never know what life has in store for you. If nothing else, what about your sister and her kids? What will they feel if their brother and uncle were gone forever?
