I guess I'm just full of empty promises. My camera is MIA so have to show you all crap photos from my iPhone. Which I just happen to have deleted because I thought I sent them to photobucket. -face palm-
Scratch that, I just remembered I have photo streaming so all those photos are saved. -insert applause here-
Okay I took more pictures than I usually do so everyone can see the different parts of my face.
Sorry for being so pic heavy, just thought you all might like to see the rest of my face. Check out those armadillo eyes! Oh so sexy. Speaking of my eyes, they look almost emerald in these pictures. They're a bit lighter than that in RL.
The pink marks you see on my cheeks are noticeable because I just took a shower. They are virtually invisible until that hot water wakes them right up!
So here's a few things going on with my skin;
1. I have a nasty "chemical burn" (I'm not sure that's what it is, but I've had one before that looked just like this) on my chin so I haven't been using my Acne.org products on it because I'm afraid it will irritate the shiz out of it.
2. I've been using the well advertised Green Tea Toner that OneFatalGoose (I hope that's his name, because I just said that from memory) recommends. It has been so great! I usually have lots of redness around my nose, which is visible from my picture, but with this toner that redness is gone. Like *poof*. One day is all it took for the redness to disappear. It doesn't make my skin feel tight all over, it only feels tight on the outline of my face. Isn't that strange? I have no idea why.
If anyone has considered trying this, I highly recommend it.
I haven't been wearing makeup at all because I've been wanting to sleep in a little. I know, shame on me for being lazy. I have a really hard time sleeping so by the time it actually happens I will only get a few hours of it. I'm also plagued by nightmares when I do sleep, so what I do get is usually interrupted. But enough woe is me garbage and on with my skin.
My forehead has always been clear with the occasional blackheads, but it's only a few and they come back in the exact same spot every time.
Myinner cheeks (next to nose) is clear, but that is where my largest pores are. They have shrunk down a lot since I changed my skincare regimen but they are still very noticeable to me. The pores on my nose look great IMO.
My chin is caught with the occasional pimple, but I've always have this little white things that COVER it. They aren't visible unless I pull the skin taught, and no matter how much I pinch them, they come back the next day. Well guess what?! Queue the GREEN TEA TONER and *SHABWAM*! They're almost all gone. Holy Snapcicles! Isn't that exciting? I've had these for as long as I can remember, so for them to be leaving my face is a dream come true.
Okay, that's about it for now. Stay Beautiful!
