My boyfriend is a photographer (as a hobby) and forces me to be his model. It is sad seeing my skin in HD photos. He normally edits my pock marks. I am going to try doing lactic acid peels every week on them to see if anything changes and if it helps with the little clogged pores I get on my chin.

I took the leap and put a couple drops of vitamin e oil on the right side of my face. It is just vitamin e oil and sunflower oil. It is called Source Naturals vitamin e oil.
I had Jason's vitamin e oil, but that was a huge mix of other oils and it is synethic vitamin e. From what I gathered, Source Naturals is natural e.


I hope it doesn't break me out :(

I didn't break out yet. Even though it has only been 3 night of using it, I know it won't break me out. If a product is going to break me out, I notice it on the 1st or 2nd day instantly.

I actually think it is drying my skin out. I slathered it all over my face last night and it isn't that magical looking in the morning. Maybe I should just do a drop in my regular face lotion..

I stopped the Spiro. It's nice waking up with oil on my face. Who knew I'd be saying that! :P
I have been using the TCA peel 2 times on a large pock mark near my mouth. I think that is the last time I'll be doing that for awhile. It almost got infected and I worried it could turn into MRSA again like I had years ago. Worst nightmare.

Maybe I should cut my Spiro to 50 mg.

One thing I am grateful for is the fact I can wash my face, put moisturizer on and go to bed! I remember how long it took to put Neosporin on all the popped zits/wounds, cover them up with tissue and then put on spot treatments like BP.

Because my marks are fading, I've stopped wearing as much foundation. I still DO, but it is condiserbly less. I focus on covering the redness in my skin.
Updated pics in my gallery.

I have been under a lot of stress lately, so I got my first cyst in forever. I felt pain on my chin and this one was going to be huge. Oh, did I mention I have a date on Friday? Worst timing ever. I put some hydrocortisone cream on it, but it wasn't doing enough, so I thought about popping it even though it didn't have a head.
Bad mistake.
I ended up putting neem seed oil over the wound and to help heal it. Phew. Love neem seed oil even if it smells horrible.

I had these sprinkling of tiny white heads on the sides of my chin/mouth. I wondered what the heck was causing them. Then I remembered I ate a lot of sugary food lately. It reminded me of the time I did a test a long time ago. I ate a box of candy and got the same reaction.. little white heads all over. I have been eating junk food because I'm trying to gain weight. I need to gain weight so I can work out easily. (If that makes sense)

I was on the train last night and caught a glimpse of my reflection on the train. The lighting is horrible on there. Holy moly. There was a patch of dents on my cheek that seemed deep. Ugh. I'm going to purchase a new dermaroller and try it over that patch.

The one thing I have noticed is that even with the medication Sprio, I still can't be 100% acne free. I still react to high dairy foods, sugar, and stress. I don't eat dairy anyways and rarely eat high sugary foods.

I have been getting more stress since starting 2013 and have noticed that if I cry, I get this huge cystic pimple on my chin! It's always the same spot! I guess no crying for me.

 

I got one in January and again I got one this week. I accidentally hit my face and noticed it hurt in one spot. I thought what the heck and took a needle to the spot. There was no bump, but I knew in my gut something was up. I squeezed the spot and yellow puss came out. UGH! Now I have to heal that spot all over again.

 

I randomly stumbled on this acne video a girl put up and it made me realize I should be grateful I'm not in that position anymore.

I got the B5 gel in the mail today. I'm going to put it on my forehead to see if it gives any bumps. I have the seabuckthorn oil coming this week too. I have a feeling the oil will break me out rather than the B5.

First day with the B5 gel. I put it on the right side of my face. It isn't as drying as I thought it would be. I do wonder if I'll get the same reaction as other serums I have used. It wouldn't exactly irritate my skin, but it would give me a ton of little irritation bumps.

I woke up today and my right side was less irritated than the left. However, it could also be what side I slept on. Who knows..

Still no break outs from the b5 gel. I'm surprised it leaves my skin moisturized. When I use my Neutrogena combo lotion, it leaves that tight feeling that I hate.

 

Put a tiny bit of sea buckthorn oil on my left temple and cheek. I am sure this will break me out. It is orange and has a weird smell.

Been 1 week since I started. I am shockingly not really breaking out from either of the newly added skin care items. I'm mostly shocked by the seabuck thorn oil. I slathered it on the left side of my face and still haven't woken up with a monster zit. However, it's not like these products have magically healed by skin yet or anything, but it's nice to not just use the bland Neutrogena lotion.

It has been over a month. I am using the seabuck thorn oil rather than the b5 gel. It really isn't breaking me out, so that's great. I'm hoping I can find a heavier oil because my skin feels dehyradated naturally.

June has been a bad month for my skin. I started getting a TON of little clogged pores on my chin which I, of course, picked at and would always end up with wounds. -Sigh-. I always believed that if I get the plug out, it'll totally help! No, it always ended up a mess. They aren't puss-filled zits or anything. I have to assume it is from the sea buck thorn oil because I made sure to stop it this month. I swear, the clogged pores came out of nowhere. I also tried switching to cotton pads with exfoliating beads on them, so maybe it'll get the makeup off more, if that's the reason why I have clogged pores.

 

I guess I have a skin picking addiction.. I am forcing myself to not pick even if I believe popping them will make my skin more level.

I am back to using Likas Papaya soap. I used that years ago, but stopped because it was too drying. I'm tired of using Bioderrma to take my makeup off because it is probably the reason why I kept getting those clogged pores.
