So after a horrible anxiety attack, seeing a new esthetician, and beginning a new regimen, my skin has definitely experienced some improvement in the past two weeks. I don't know if it's from having had a chemical peel for the first time in months, or from increasing the amount of sleep I'm getting, or from beginning a new regime (see signature), but I really haven't had any cystic formations in two weeks now, which for me, is amazing.

 

My skin is far from perfect (still oily and prone to small breakouts) but overall this is the best it has been in months. Per the recommendation of my esthetician, I've incorporated a Murad Concealer into my regimen, which has really helped to conceal small blemishes and any hyper-pigmenation. I'd still like to incorporate probiotics and other supplements into my diet to try and combat acne at the internal level, but for now I am glad to have experienced some much-needed relief.

 

Note: my original post described my anxiety attack over a horrible cystic formation, but I have since updated this post my new progress.

People at the meeting will see it and understand what is going on.  They will not be frightened.  They will not have contempt for you.  They will understand you are undergoing a temporary cosmetic problem.  That is all they will think.  Then they will think of their own business.

aloe vera gel can help bring down the redness somewhat, also green tea can help with redness. sleep good tonight dont drink ANY alcohol just water and green tea.  sal acid will help redness prob because of its close relationship 2 aspirin, not benzoil! dont apply any bp. maybe just a bit of sa on spots that can handle it.

Thanks guys. I took off work today because things were just too bad. Anyway I made an emergency appointment with a local aesthetician. The lady was really nice and understanding and helped me develop a completely new regimen using SIRCUIT Skincare products. I got a light chemical peel, a cooling clay mask, and the following products: a salicylic wash, a sulfur mask, and a mineral concealer. It was $250 in total - for the treatment and the products.
