Anyway, I don't think that changing the water temperature is going to break you out. But then again, what do I know? Lol ..maybe just try lukewarm water first.
On another note, I'm feeling pretty guilty right now because I just squeezed out a couple of blackheads. It was out of sheer boredom, too. I didn't really do much though, just squeezed out the ones that were like ... pushing out of my pores and looking really gross. That just happened to be the majority of them though. But yeah, it didn't take much effort to extract them ... ugh they are the bane of my existence. I dabbed some tea tree oil on my problem areas as well. I hope I don't wake up tomorrow to an army of pimples. I will be soooooo mad at myself. -_- Note to self: STAY AWAY FROM MIRRORS. They are evil.
"Mirrors"- tell me about it, the greatest enemies..Stay away from them for the next few days atleast till we are on this regimen...I guess at this point of time, not touching the face is the best thing to do, but in my opinion, more than the touching, the tea tree oil shouldnt be used at all when on water only regimen, I mean any topical shouldnt be used. There are chances that you would breakout at the same place, or nearby place, but not sure, may be not? Hope for the best, and try not to use anything on the face from now. Even if you pop any pimple or whitehead or blackhead, just leave it alone after that. I mean try to not pop it at all, but if you do, then dont apply anything after that. Leave it, and it may heal faster.
And yes, I should try with going from hot to warm first. And then may be lukewarm. I wont be going to cold water until next month, because if I break out in between, I will start blaming the water temp, which may clearly have nothing to do with it. But yes, may be little warm rather than hot!
