Striving For Stupid Perfection
Posted 15 July 2012 - 11:43 PM
Fastforward to now, I've been using more natural products, which have cleared me up pretty good. Oatmeal cleanser, honey mask, aloe Vera gel as moisturizer. Most ppl would say my skin is really clear, my acne scars have faded, not completely gone but good enough not to be able to tell. But for some reason it is still not good enough. I'm striving for some type of perfection that humans aren't meant to reach. No matter how clear my skin is I'm still not satisfied, and if I do get a pimple. I have a nervous breakdown, and to be honest I'm so tired of worrying about my skin. Why can't I just accept my improvement and be done with it, instead I'm constantly obsessing over a pimple or a clogged pore. I guess im just typing this log so I can get my feelings out, and eventually progress from my current emotional situation.
As for tonight, I had a breakdown. Picked at my skin, i have 1 active pimple that doesn't seem to want to go away....I need to change my mentality when it comes to my skin. No more stress or worry, that's my goal. I just want to appreciate how well my skin is doing.
Well that's all i have to say for tonight. Feels good.

Some days I feel like if I wasn't so concerned with it and in turn- I didn't confuse my skin by changing products/ supplements/ lifestyle etc., the problem would resolve itself.
And yet I am still not patient enough! I have made it 12 weeks without changing anything and my goal is to get to 20 before I assess the condition of my skin.
I will join you in trying not to pick at my skin!
