Woah.

Long time no post, bloggyblog, its... uh, day-i-dont-give-a-fuck. Only spot i've had this month was a teeny whitehead, otherwise i've been clear. BP once a day in the morning, i'm thinking of trying to move it to even once every OTHER day, but i dunno yet. Diet-wise, i still consume a fair amount of sugar, but most of it is from sugary fruit, veggies (carrots and whatnot) corn products, and a bit of flour here and there, theres a bit of sugar in the sauces my mom has used to make

Day 166

Well, shit, i just realized i ate potatoes the FIRST day, and the pita chips i've been eating with the hummus have sugar added. so i switched to the whole grain crackers my mom bought, and guess what? corn syrup, all up in them. I admit, i almost wanted to drop the diet just because of how ridiculous this is, but i'll make it through, i'll just learn to love raw veggies in hummus i guess. Its not too bad though, i'm doing pretty good i think, only two slip ups so far. And ano
 

Day 165... I THINK

Don't quote me on the day, i'm too tired to do basic math. Skin is still clear and fine, i'm getting addicted to touching it when i cleanse, it feels like BUTTER, and its really starting to look good, barely notice the red marks, although the scarred pores on my cheeks are starting to show through more, but i really don't care about them, my dad has gigantic pores, and so does my mom, and no one comments on them, so it doesn't matter. Almost two days without sugar, no withdrawal sympto
 

Day 159

Got a painful spot on my cheek, popped it, its gone now. Otherwise skin is perfectly clear and fine. And i never realized how many foods/meals have sugar in them Can't have chicken soup, The broth is made with carrots, there are carrots in the soup itself. Can't have sandwiches, whitebread is a No no. Baked goods, most fruits, cereal, pasta, dairy (even yogurt!) fatty meat. Its kind of insane, the only thing i can really eat are veggies, lean meat, nuts, tortillas,
 

Day 157

Need to start labeling these with the day i'm on... Uh. I started the first of September. soo.. 157 days all together, I THINK. Whiteheads on my chin dried up after i drained them about... four? times each... persistant little fuckers, the big ass spot on my chin pretty much died within two days of icing, hot compresses, bandaids and neosporin (Thank wynne for the sticky on the severe acne board) so i'm clearish, in a way, i feel another spot on my chin thats a bit sore, but i doubt it

No matter how many times i SWEAR to stop eating dairy, i always think -Oh, well maybe a spoonful of this, or a small bite of that wont do anything- WRONG. I had two spoonfuls of ice cream the past week, and i have 4 whiteheads on my chin, 1 under my nose, and 1 in the corner of my mouth. Not only that, but i have a full out zit starting to form on my chin as well... Goddamnit. I'd usually attribute it to lowering my BP (1 and 1/8th pumps!) but my skin has been perfectly fine,
 

Potatoes

Okay its day.... 135? give or take. And my skin is doing great, i have a little sore spot by my nose, but its probably a sign that i'm getting a visit from aunt flow soon, so i'll just start popping aleve and hope it works out for the best. I've lowered my BP to 1 and 1/2 pumps, maybe a bit more, and so far, no breakouts, so i'll keep it at this for another week or two and lower it to 1 and 1/4, then 1, then chill there for awhile, maybe a month, and then start lowering my day dosage,
 

Woops.

So i had a bit of tea a few days ago, and that resulted in two pretty sore spots on my chin, they were ABOUT to come to a head, but i popped them because of how PAINFUL they were, and are healing up nicely now. So all in all, i'm still clear, no more pus in my face/pores, and my red marks are continuing to fade each day. Really happy with my skin, dryness is gone, flakes are gone, no redness, no anything except clear, soft skin and a bit of pigmentation, and some slight scaring across
 

Oh god, OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD

So i just realized i've been on the regimen for 5 months. FIVE. MONTHS. Thats nearly HALF A YEAR. HALF A YEAR. Oh my god, if i hadn't of started the regimen, i'd be sitting here with acne all over my face. i just... i can't believe how long its been, and how FAST it went by, i never used to pay attention to the time, year, days, i'd literally do a double take whenever i looked at a calender, i'm THAT out of touch with reality most of the time, but the regimen i

Title unrelated. So i think i'm out of the -danger zone- with cerave, my face has been perfectly clear and pretty since those two bumps, hell, i even lower my dose back to two and a half pumps, and my red marks are diminishing DRAMATICALLY. i DID use emu oil for two days, but i got this weird lump on my neck (no where near my face, and i've never EVER gotten a spot on my neck before) so i stopped using it, but it never got on my neck, so i think it was unrelated, so i think i'll just a
 

Butter.

CURSE YOU BUTTER! CURSE YOU AND YOUR DELICIOUS WAYS, WHY DOTH THOU TASTE SO SCRUMPTIOUS AND BUTTER-Y? WHY DOTH THOU TAUNT ME SO, IN ALL THYN COOKIE RECIPES/BAKED GOOD? WHY DOTH THOU CONTAIN DAIRY? WHAT IS THYN PURPOSE? Yeah, i fucking love butter, and it shows in my skin lately too. Painful ass -spot- on my chin, not even sure if its anything more than a whitehead, but it HURTS, oh my god. Lots of clogged pores purging again, no idea why this seems to happen in waves, but it makes
 

Nilla wafers (Not related in the slightest)

Still clear. Red marks are beginning to take their tole, but i will ignore them for the most part. Flakes are still under control, dryness is slowly disappearing. Squeezed a few big blackheads out, didn't breakout, hopefully i won't get into the habit of doing that.

Sooo the whiteheads died down, which is great, but i woke up with a painful ass whitehead on my upper lip line, because i DO break out there often, so i have to apply BP basically ON my lips, and i haven't lately because i hate how it feels, but whenever i get spots there, they tend to linger for MONTHS, so i'm going to go back to applying lots of BP there. also upping my BP to three pumps, not sure if its a permanent thing, but i'm keeping it like this until i'm out of the -danger- zone wi
 

Ungh

I THINK ceraVe is breaking me out. I have around 5-10 pseudo-whiteheads (By that i mean whiteheads without the... well, white, just pink bumps basically) all over, and those only pop up when i'm about to break out, but i'm giving ceraVe a full trial course, so until i see an ACTUAL pimple, i won't drop it. I pray to GOD its not a breakout though, i LOVE ceraVe, its fucking amazing, my skin feels so soft and supple after using it, and despite the slight burning sensation sometimes, its

Running out of entry title ideas here!

Still clear, ALMOST had a zit pop up on my cheek, probably caused from PMS, since i forgot to take aleve one night, but it stopped in its tracks after two nights of upping my BP to three pumps, and spot treating with my neutrogena AHA lotion (No idea if it works or not, but having that little blob of white on the zit makes me feel better, i'm a total spot treat-aholic.) Switched to ceraVe hydrating cleanser because i couldn't find dove or any of the others at the store, and i wasn't going t
 

Awesome

Definitely was the cetaphil, i'm completely clear again. But the journey to finding a usable, cheap cleanser that wont break me out is still on, and i have a feeling its going to be a bumpy road (Er, face) but i wont give up! Next on my list of things to try IS. Dove Purpose Neutrogena CeraVe CeraVe at the bottom because its 14 dollars for a bottle of cleanser at my walmart, thats just ridiculous, but i guess its better than 30 dollars if nothing else works. Any w

Cetaphil?

So i have another whitehead on my chin, one on my jaw, and another spot RIGHT next to the one on my cheek (which hasn't healed yet, i might add) It doesn't make sense at all! i stopped drinking caffine, i'm sleeping loads, and i'm not even stressed, and yet i'm still getting spots? i'm thinking it HAS to be the cetaphil bar i switched to recently, i mean, theres nothing else to blame it on, so i'm changing back to my purifying cleanser tonight, and if i keep breaking out, i'll just say

Derp.

Am i the only one who reads accutane logs whenever i feel depressed about my skin? I dunno if that makes me shallow or a bad person or something, but i always feel thankful that my skin isn't anywhere near bad enough to go on accutane, and i also feel a sense of respect for people who manage to go through severe acne/cystic acne with a smile on their face and a good attitude. It also keeps me from picking, my barely-noticable blackheads seem impossible to ignore? seeing someone with AC

I just... i don't even know anymore.

I think one of the clogs on my cheek turned into a zit. i keep pressing on it, but it doesn't FEEL like it hurts, but who knows. Kind of lost as to whats causing these consistent spots, i'm thinking caffine perhaps? i've still been drinking lots of tea, and i REALLY need to stop that. Maybe its still stress, its not as bad as before, but its still there, so i'll try to mellow out a little more. and i'm going back to taking naps in the middle of the day, so hopefully it isnt s

Oompa... Loompa. doopity dee.

So no new spots to speak of (YET!) and that one on my lip took FOREVER to heal (the scab came off JUST this morning) and i'm really getting pissed off at all these lip zits, they bother me more than anything (Besides eyebrow spots and forehead spots) And my cheeks seem to be purging (ie lots of clogs coming out) so i'm happy about that (Kind of... Clogs coming out = me rubbing and scratching at them which = redness which looks like spots and freaks me out) i've been desperately resisting th
 

-Insert witty post title here-

Feel another whitehead about to pop up under my bottom lip. Its funny, these spots shouldn't even be considered spots, its just a little white dot on my skin, its never even red until it pops, and then it scabs, and goes away. Anyway, i think these are actually from STRESS, i never notice when i'm under stress, but apparently i am, since theres nothing else contributing to it, and i should be completely clear right now, at least i should be from past experience. The only thing i'm
 

Oh skin, you so crazy.

The spot under my nose popped (Er, the top peeled off and i pinched out the little nugget of pus or whatever its called) and it scabbed over, the scab peeled off a day later, and now its just a wee little red mark. The marks on my upper lip, between my eyebrows, and jaw seem to heal the fastest, but they don't really DISAPPEAR like they do in other spots, they kind of just stick around as little brown freckle-looking fuckers, but its cool, i can live with that. The spot on my temple is
