I'm day 4 into starting medication for my acne. So far, it's been okay! The only bad thing i'm dealing with is redness :( and a little bit of drying due to my BP wash, but other than that I am seeing improvement already on my forehead (: which is good enough for me at this point!

Broke the first rule of acne care and messed with a pimple. Tried to lance and squeeze a zit which had no clear head. Now I'm left with a big red angry disgusting mess that keeps refilling with pus. When will I ever learn??!! AAARGH!!

For the past three days my face has been reduced to a dry, red, flaking mess. My acne was pretty much completely clear before this point. But because of the sudden dryness I had to stop washing my face (because washing your face strips away moisture) and cake on moisturizer every few hours, and this has caused the acne to get worse. Just my luck! 

 

I suppose it is a decent trade off. I would rather have a few pimples than a beet-red face covered in flaking, drying skin.

so far my new routine is working. the tretinoin really seems to help, and The Regimen's cleanser has quickly become a favorite. it makes my skin feel amazing every time i wash it. still trying to figure out a way to incorporate jojoba and aha into my routine regularly, though. but so far so good. no new breakouts, all but 3 pimples have completely cleared up. only real downside is my skin is incredibly dry right now.
