So, my skin is back to normal in terms of moisture. My skin has never been "too oily" or "too dry", ever. That was surely one thing I was blessed with. Like I said, its back to being normal. No peeling or irritation. The breakout on my chin is completely gone now. But, I woke up with a pimple on my cheek this morning. But good news! Its almost gone now. I love how much more quickly my body fends off the pimples that I am getting.
Recently, my lower back has been hurting. I don't think it's
Eeeep, my skin feels so sensitiiiiive!
My nose is a little dried out and flakey; which I can only assume is a combination of the Claravis and extreme winds here. My nose and the bit around my eyes feels constricted and irritated. It's a bit pink, too. I'm sure my 'gentle' exfoliation treatment with the washcloth probably didn't help that much, either. :/ Boo for lack of self-control!
Anywho, my lips aren't chapped much at all, still. (I loooove Carmex! <3) No new blemishes to report; o

After a bit of reading, I found out that the astringent I was using had some bad irritants in it, thanks to It has a lot of useful information on it. The particular o
Sooo, I completely broke out on the bottom right side of my mouth/chin today. Its a bit frustrating and it's worse than it normally ever is.
My derm said that, which is often the case, my skin will get worse before it gets better. I also have a feeling my hormones are taking part in this pissing contest with my acne. Lol.
My lips aren't chapped, but they just don't feel moisturized, no matter how much carmex/chapstick I throw on it. I'm drinking tons and tons of water hoping that'll help
This will be short, since there isn't much to say.
I started back in December with creating a habit of applying chapstick/carmex. I always have something on hand.
I haven't noticed any special changes yet with my skin. If anything, it has kept the usual pimple pop-ups to a minimum. Then again, I have a sneaking suspicion that the reason the pimples haven't popped up is because or hormones. Gotta love it when the body psychs you out before slapping you hardcore.

Hey everyone! Thanks for taking the time to read this. This entire blog is going to be dedicated to my struggle with acne. Well.. more so just to document my experiences with "Claravis". Geeze, I have the worst time trying to spell that. I keep having to look back at the box to make sure I'm spelling it right. I apologize now if anything I say sounds weird or disgusting; I'm not exactly used to opening myself up like this.
Anyway, a quick oversight of my skin, I guess. I'm currently twenty o
