I think your face is looking wonderful BTW I see your an avid picker/popper also … OPPS …do you get bad hyperpigmentation from it? I pick and pop constantly, I can't go into the bathroom without picking at scabs or dry skin or popping .. even if there is no way that joker is popping you best believe I'm going to be squeezing it!! I have post pimple red marks that are everywhere and awful, even though I have severe acne the red marks makes it appear I have 25 more bumps. I think I saw where you had mentioned lemon juice for red marks, how do you use it? Just rub it over with a cotton ball? Do you leave it for x amount of time? Do you put make up on over it or wash it off? Sorry so many questions and I had never thought of Neosporin!! You just apply and then cover with a band aid after popping and it helps heal it, right?! I will definitely continue to follow your blog so that maybe I can pick up some more awesome tips Good Luck
P.S. My cousin lives in Anchorage we're from the hot southern state of Arkansas and she says the cold and dryness there does hell on her skin!!
Hey girl! Good luck with your course, it really has been a rollercoaster for me but I WISH I would have done it sooner. Good for you for getting your tane on! Yes, I live by neosporin and bandaids...I've found it to be a huge help for bumps small to large - and its helped keep my HP at bay. I don't even have a red mark left from those 2 big cysts I had last week because I was religious about the antibiotic ointment.
Before I was on accutane, I used lemon juice as a toner and it worked like a charm. Not only did it help control my oil, but it improved my skin tone and lightened up my red marks like crazy. I had a big breakout after a horrible facial...I'm talking 30+ pimples and it was right before I went to Mexico for my girlfriends wedding. After about 3 weeks of using the lemon juice they were almost completely gone. I haven't used it since I started accutane because my skin is too sensitive now, but I plan to continue when I'm done with my course.
Its soooooo cold here!! It's been between -20 and -10 for the last 2 weeks, its miserable. I can't wait for the spring
