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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
