It's been a week since I picked at the zit on my forehead, here onwards we shall call him Jake, and the wound's healed nicely. I continued with the turmeric-honey-cinnamon mask for 3 days total and started applying BP on Jake by the 3rd day. 4th day saw the Jake wound dry up, and make-up application was better. Overall, the natural mask might have helped lessen wound infection, though I really cannot tell, as I think my Jakes take the same time to heal. But what I did notice was it h
Stubborn person that I am, I picked on my skin. There was no inflammation -- I just had seen a whitehead that I 'know' I could remove and help me get clear skin---WRONG!!! How many times do I have to tell myself to NOT TOUCH MY FACE? Apparently a lot--but I will keep telling myself this until I have it ingrained in me. So that was 2 days back, next day, slight inflammation that didn't go full-blown, I had rushed to put BP, then jojoba and prayed like anything. I poked at it last night, a
I've never gone out without putting makeup on--EVER. Difficult to believe, I know, but that is just one of the effects of acne on me. My barometer of having clear skin is when I no longer have to wear makeup. Now that is one glorious day and I am looking forward to it! I have used a lot of make-up brands: Maybelline Max Factor Nivea Bourjois Clarins Clinique ELF Merle Norman MAC Bobbi Brown
God help me, but I cannot seem to stop picking at my face. I have three new marks, one on my forehead, two on my right cheek, all because I couldn't stop myself, arrgghh. I hate having bumps, that's why I pick, hopeless... Ok - for the umpteenth time, I PROMISE NOT TO TOUCH MY FACE UNECESSARILY. I WILL NOT PICK ON BLACKHEADS STARTING TODAY. I will do it this time.
I've changed my cleanser and moisturizer since my last post. MORNING Wash with Cetaphil Treat with Benzac AC 2.5% Moisturize and protect with Derma Ceutic K Ceutic cream with SPF 40 EVENING Wash with Cetaphil Treat with Benzac AC 2.5% Mosturize with Jojoba oil, Cetaphil moisturiser and sometimes I even break open an Evening Primrose gel capsule I started this beginning of May and this is definitely better. I saw the skin clearing process was faster. It is very true
Starting the Regimen, I no longer had angry acne like before. BUT I do still have stubborn pimples now and again, and my face has dark marks from previous spots. And I am a chronic pricker *sigh* I started with a lot of BP my first day -- I figured that my skin was used to BP and every other product out there that it won't be a problem. Thank God, it was true. I saw an immediate effect on raised bumps all over my face. They have settled down a bit after the first application. Skin
MORNING Kojic soap Benzac AC 2.5% BP K Ceutic Repairing Cream with Vit K and SPF 40 EVENING Kojic soap Benzac AC 2.5% BP Olay Classic Beauty Fluid Tisserand Jojoba Oil I am mostly using what I already have in my cabinet. I will need to replenish my supplies soon but I need to figure out what to buy that won't be as expensive but as effective. I'd like to buy Dan's stuff but I don't know if they'll ship here.
I started to break out when I was 18. I have always had oily skin, and I would get 1 or 2 pimples once a month. It didn't bother me much. Then I discovered make-up, I had learned to use concealer on the dark marks from my pimples. The problem was I didn't learn to clean my face each night, sometimes I missed off entirely. I broke out fabulously--really red, angry, cystic acne all over my face. My whole face hurt so much all the time, and no amount of make-up could hide the redness.
