The other reason is that even though I stopped using all harsh topicals months ago, my face is still noticeably red - my jaw line is also a clear-cut line between my red facial skin and my normal neck skin. People say it vastly improved their skin tone - was anyone in this situation before they started?
Topically, I'm going full caveman - nothing whatsoever is going to touch my face, except my electric razor. Has anyone used one while doing this? Does it cause irritation? I do have some distilled water though, in case I do need to use water on my face for something unforseen.
However, I'm going to be using supplements as I just bought them and don't want them to go to waste - Vitamin A, B5, D, and zinc. Any thoughts on this?
It's kind of day one and half haha, as the last time I did anything to my face was yesterday afternoon. It was the best feeling ever today to just get up and go without worrying about using various products on my face. The whitehead in the corner of my mouth continued to grow and started to throb, but I'm not going to worry about that as that process must have started a good few days ago before I started this. The other pustule I have right now seems to have dried up and scabbed over nicely though, and the same can be said for the tiny spots I have on my chin from shaving a few days ago. My face has been super oily today even though it didn't get as bad as early as normal, but obviously by now it's much worse as I haven't washed or wiped the oil off like I normally do several times a day. No sign of any flakiness yet, which I have to admit is my biggest concern but I will happily go through it to at least find out what is on the other side, good or bad.
EDIT: By now, 8:30 in the evening, the oil is beginning to get unbearable. I can just feel it sitting on my skin and it's itchy. Would blotting it with toilet paper hurt?
