I would never have thought that I would ever be this consistently clear. It's the trio of Clarisonic, BP, and Tazorac. Of course, if I miss even one of these things for more than one day, I get a pimple. Makes camping tough.
I've been soo MIA from this forum. Med school apps and general craziness...
My hair is still falling out. It's been 6- 7 months since it started. o.O
HOWEVER I got into med school!!! It's hard to feel bad about anything now, lol. My life goals/dreams are finally coming true!!!!
I haven't changed anything about how I do the regimen - but I've been breaking out a whole lot more than normal lately. It's really annoying. Today was the first time in a while where I felt embarrassed about my skin / didn't want other people to see it.
I guess the past week has been a bit stressful and disrupted (haven't slept much or well). It's been exciting too though. I started my masters degree last monday (and graduate from my bachelor degree next tuesday - so hoping my skin clears up a bit by then). It's quite a full on degree - long days and early starts - but I'll adjust to that soon enough and hopefully my skin will too. I think lack of sleep might be contributing to the break outs.
It's annoying though to be dealing with 'problem' skin now though as I want to be making a good impression on other people in my degree and feel like I can't when my skin is a bit of a mess...
I have met some nice people though and everyone seems friendly so far. I am the youngest in the degree though which is fine. But most of the people I've been talking too are 25 - 28 or a little older - and majority of people are either in long term relationships or married... which makes it awkward for me (or makes me feel awkward) when at lunch or whenever, and they'll be talking about their partners in one way or another. I'm just hoping they don't ask me about whether I'm in a relationship or have past relationships etc because my answer will be no. And I don't want to have to answer anything like that
I still feel weird or stupid or something for being 20 and not having had a relationship of any sort. I feel like 20 is still pretty young though but in comparison to majority of people my age, I feel behind. And I know there's no point to 'worrying' over it / there's nothing I can do - but I wish there was some way to avoid the topic coming up in conversation I'll just have to hope they don't ask.
I'm 21, and I've never been in a relationship either... My friend is 22 and she's never been in a relationship. It's really not as uncommon as you would think, I promise. A lot of my friends had their first relationships at 21, 22 years old. This is not the age that most people tie themselves down into relationships anyway.
You know, you might be breaking out because of dryness. My skin gets cloggy because of dryness. Are you flaking? Try scrubbing gently with a clean wash cloth when you're washing your face to get the flakes off and then moisturize. I find that I have to change up my medication regimen a bit during the winters/seasonal change.
Congrats on your masters program!!! That's great!
Also, IDK if you've tried the clarisonic, but I'm totally plugging it. I'm so impressed with what its done for my skin... it's mad my whole regimen more effective.
