END OF WEEK 6/BEGINNING OF WEEK 7
My skin was a nightmare prior to Spiro and Retin A 0.025% and just after 6 weeks everything seems great. I'm not 100% clear but the worst thing on my face right now is this mini pimple on the top right side of my nose just below my eyebrow. Scars are fading and if I do get a bump its usually very small and goes away quickly, I'm really really happy.
I know theres still some time to go and I really don't want to jinx anything. I want to just express my gratitude to these products as lame as it may sound and the universe for making me happy again. This is how I felt during the final months of Accutane and the months after and it feels so good to not be running into department stores to judge whether your face was okay enough for you to continue to walk around and just not make eye contact or retreat back to your apartment and hide from everyone. Everyone's noticing a difference not just in my face but in my step. I never wear color for I always feared it would bring more attention to my face and the redness and just stick to wearing black but I've been changing up my wardrobe and everyones noticing that I'm more positive and smiley and bubbly. I've applied to a couple of jobs recently and I've gotten call backs, and that hasn't happened a lot before so my confidence is even seeping through in interviews.
This is an ongoing battle and I know my journey to clear skin isn't completely over, but its nice to know that the long winding endless path is a lot shorter.
Stay positive everyone and we'll all get out of this looking hot!
