hi. so, i haven't posted on here for a long time. if anyone is reading this is bothered about catching up on my other posts, you'll see that i wanted to move to london by the end of september last year. i did. it's been okay, nothing great. my skin has improved greatly from when i was last posting and it seems to have been under control if anything. there have been times where i've had nothing to worry about for weeks and weeks, and times where my face has been a mess and i've
i'm tired. red marks are annoying. i don't understand why they take so long to go. if i cut my arm or get a mosquito bite somewhere on my body, it'll take next to no time to go away but a red mark on my face will take weeks and weeks. it's really boring to constantly have to treat these. i'm not upset or anything over it, just bored of them being there. they're going down slowly but it's just the fact that they're taking soooo long. i'm still using aftershave balm on my face after i ha
yo yo yo. i haven't written on here for a while due to laziness and not much to report. my face is getting clearer and clearer from the red marks i've got but they're still there frustrating me and i've got an ingrown hair on the side of my jaw which is a choooore because it's quite big but thankfully not really noticeable at face value. my confidence is growing but i've got a bit of a problem. that longing to look into a mirror when you haven't seen yourself for a couple of hours. lik
yo yo yo. hi to anyone reading this. i'm in a bit of a mixed mood, but generally quite positive. let's wind the clock back a few weeks. i had 3 major annoyances on my face, but they didn't really look like spots, more like bites. one next to my nose which lasted a couple of weeks and never came to a head, it was just this big red bump and felt quite tough. it's gone now. then on the other side of my nose, the same thing but slightly smaller, which went, then came back as a white head a
evening/afternoon to anyone reading. i've had this whitehead at the bottom of my cheek near the back of my face for the past couple of days, a really tiny one that fiiiinally surfaced from like friday. it's pretty annoying because i've had to shave around it and left a few little hairs around it instead of getting a cleaner shave. it's also next to these 2 red marks and makes it look a bit more unsightly around there, although not too bad in all honestly...it's just me being pedantic.
yo! things are going really well. how're things going with anyone else? i'm gonna try not to make this a long winded entry because there isn't much to report except my skin is getting better and better. i missed shaving last night and just had one now with 3 blades. if i was shaving like, 3 weeks ago, my face afterwards would be really red and blotchy in places, but now, after a shave, my face actually looks really good. i've got a lot of little red marks everywhere that only i
so i finally did it. i shaved over 2 consecutive days for the first time in nearly 6 months, and used a 2 bladed razor for the first time in over a year. it felt a bit weird to be holding a smaller razor and for it to glide across my skin so easily without having to cut a load of thick black hair. there was less irritation obviously and after my shave, there were no patches of red from discomfort on my face or anything. all in all, a success. i did have a patch on my chin where a spot
evening/afternoon/morning to whoever's reading! how're things? so if you've read my other posts then you'll know about my thoughts on shaving etc. i said i was going to shave every night and expect a positive result from that, however, i didn't because of a couple of spots etc. i've shaved tonight, as i usually do every 3 nights, and it's given me an opportunity. with these recent thoughts in my head about how my face is affected by shaving or not shaving, i've examined my face as my f
first off, thanks to anyone who's reading this. i've been doing a lot of thinking over the past few of weeks.. my mood has been up and down depending on how i'm looking and it seems that i'll leave the house, go to work or see friends and be really upbeat (well, as upbeat as you can be at work haha), but then come home and look in the mirror and get pissed off all over again and sulk at home until i next go out and manage to swerve some of my attention off of my skin and enjoy time a bit.
hi to anyone reading this, and thanks for having a gander! i guess i'll start by saying my name's matt, i'm 21 and you've probably seen me around a few places asking rubbish selfish questions! haha. i've called my blog "dark sunshine" because i'm an extremely positive person and everyone knows me for it, but wherever i am, or who i'm with, i've always got a second voice in my head questioning how i look or a second set of eyes concentrating on where people are looking when i'm talking
