Well I have been using Paula's Choice BHA 2% liquid since Thurs. on just my cheeks, nose, and in between my eyes. In between my eyes seems okay but HOLY CRAP!!!! BREAKOUT CITY on my cheeks, under my nose (where I think the liquid drips) and nose!!!! Maybe it's an IB? No clue... I'm hoping so. I'm going to switch to using once a day I guess, and see where that takes me. I still do the regimen, just now on my nose and cheeks...but now I'm going to once a day. Still taking the same vitamins and s
So. Still getting clogged pores in my cheeks and in between my eyebrows. And some on my chin as well. Just got a new pimple on my left cheek can't tell what it's going to be yet (big, small, easy, pain in the butt, etc.) I just ordered some BHA from Paula's Choice for my clogged pores...i just ordered a sample size but I will let you guys know how it goes. I got really bad stomach pain/heartburn recently, so I have had to take some medications (unfortunately) so that could have contr
Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Well, haven't ran in the past two days due to emergencies. Got my hair done today and she put crap on my forehead. Then, fell asleep with my little make up on! I'm so stupid. Good thing I woke up at 1:30 AM at least to wash my face. But still. This is awful. So incredibly dumb of me I haven't done this in months! My own freakin' fault. My clogged pores are more enlarged, that's for sure. I also think I got some new ones That's what I get for not getting u
So, did something bad tonight. I picked two raised blackhead things (not sure what they are called). One came out instantly, and I actually think it was okay as I long as I disinfected it (we will find out tomorrow though! Haha maybe I made it worse--which is most likely) and I also picked another blackhead thing...yeah, it's bigger my fault though! Sorry skin! So I have been running these past 3 days. I love it so far. But I also got a new pimple on my chest, which hasn't happened in a
Haha, oh my... my last rant was insane! It was late though (3 AM--after Harry Potter too) and I was upset. And just to state first off, I think by now if you are reading my blog you have probably discovered it is a hybrid of the DKR regimen and holistic health. So, that being said... I did have a breakout Thurs/Fri of last week. My chin still has little ones, I have two pretty big ones above my lip, the cyst on my right cheek is still lingering, and two (possibly three) on my forhea
Really discouraged right now. So...I took D3, Vitamin A, and Cod Liver Oil tonight...which I probably should have done slowly(incorporated one after the other after time)...but didn't. Ate a bit of chocolate at the movie...probably shouldn't have done that either. I have 3 NEW pimples on my chin...one is a cyst, a cyst on my lip, clogged pores on right cheek more enlarged, and a new zit on my forehead. WTF!? SERIOUSLY?! I was doing so well...just wanted to add more vitamins...god
One word for today: RED! SUPER RED! Which is weird, because I haven't been this red in awhile (or ever, maybe...). Maybe I'm allergic to something I have eaten? I have also slightly increased my BP amount, so that could be it too. Hopefully it calms down by midnight (at least, before would be preferable), as I am going to be seeing HARRY POTTER AT MIDNIGHT!!!! I'm excited Don't judge, haha. Maybe I will post a picture of it later. Anyways, so the tea tree oil was good. Think it made m
Quick update. The freakin' huge monster in the middle of my forehead is gone. I popped it haha I know. But now it's pretty much nothing but a red mark. Shouldn't pop though! But it was seriously huge. Everyone commented on it, including my sister who knows not to say anything about my skin, lol. The cyst on my right cheek is still huge. But not touching it. Just putting BP on it. I also have some clogged pores on my right cheek as well hmph. BUT, for the first time I used tea tree
So, it's okay right now I guess. The little pimples are gone, for now. I think it was purging and not putting enough BP on these areas. Redness is....random, lol. Some days I'm not red at all, some days I'm red all day, some days it comes and goes. It really depends on what I eat, how much water I drink, the temperature, how active I am, etc. Same with the peeling. Just completely random. Unfortunately, I have my first cysts since starting the regimen . One right smack dab in the middle o
So I guess BP is water insoluble, meaning that it cannot be dissovled by water. This is actually interesting to know because (yes, I did have a mishap with my water bottle this morning) but this also great information for all of the swimmers out there. So, (and this might be a stupid question to ask, but I must) BP cannot be "washed off" at all (well after it dries)? I know it is absorbed...but just into the skin? Into the system? I will study this a bit more, and I'm simply curious.
Sitll the same pretty much. The little pimples seem to be getting maybe a little better on my upper lip, between my eyes, and chin. The ones on my cheeks are still there. I did something incredibly stupid about 10 minutes ago. I was drinking my water and tipped it a little too far back and got water ALL OVER MY FACE, mostly aorund my mouth (where I have been breaking out) So, CRAP. I just dabbed it, didn't wipe or anything--so I hope the BP stayed. UGH, I'm paranoid about it now. Wish I
This week is so terrible for me, and I am unsure as to why. My good cheek, my favorite cheek that is always so good has gotten a pimple, and it is probably going to be big. I literally don't understand. I eat so well, I do the regimen, I change my pillow cases every night, I have not let anyone touch my face (even my fiance), etc. I just have done so much and I STILL GET IT. It never ends and I don't understand. I wonder if it's my birth control...but I have already been on it for almost 2 month
Put almost the full amount of BP on. Ugh, it hurts. Also, had to miss work again because I'm still kind of sick The pimples on my chin, upper lip, and between my eyes are the same, and last night I used the Neutrogena BP on them, and this morning I used Dan's BP on them. I hate having to use it in these areas because the drying is the worst there sucks! But at least I can relax at home today (even though I do feel awful). Really red again in those areas because they aren't used to the
So, my whole chin, upper lip, and corners of my mouth have blown up in little zits (minus one that is quite big ) In all honesty though, it's my fault. I have neglected to put BP on these areas due to the dryness. Now I almost have to start all over with that area :/ it sucks but it's my fault. I'm going to use the Neutrogena BP on these areas because I find it less drying. I'm hoping it will work. If not, I will use Dan's BP. That is all. Oh, I'm still sick from the Zinc (also my fau
I was stupid in doing this but just as a warning to the rest of you: DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT, TAKE ZINC WITHOUT FOOD. I got so sick I had to leave work early it was painful and I was so incredibly nauseous. Omygah it was terrible, lol. I have taken zinc before (same bottle ad everything) and I never got like that before. Oh well, lesson learned.
Really, really discouraged today. It's awful. The ones above my lip literally look like a rash or something, my chin just keeps getting more, the ones between my eyes have become huge, oh and I have a new friend on my forehead. I don't get it. My face just can't be clear. I have done two rounds of accutane and it STILL breaks out. I eat good, I only drink water, I avoid all dairy and sweets, I don't wear make up, I keep care of it topically and still my skin is not happy! Why?! It is so frustrat
Yeah, these clogged pores/little white heads are getting oooold. The ones on my chin seem to be (hopefully) going away a bit. But the ones on my upper lip make me look like I have some kind of herpes and the ones in between my eyes are getting more enlarged Ugh, ridic. STILL FLAKEY. As always, lol. Oh! Also got a new pimple on my forehead by my right eyebrow, where I previously had a pimple, but it's now dying and this new one decided to take it's place . Not cool! Updat
Same 'ol, same 'ol. Less red. Still flakey. Still clogged pores in between my eyes, on my upper lip, chin and cheeks. GRRR. They're so hard to get rid of too. I'm trying not to touch them because they do eventually go away, but if I pop them they just come right back. So weird. Also, does anyone notice increased redness when they exercise? And by exercise I mean just simply walking a lot? I notice every time I walk quite a bit, I'm not red before or during, but I am super red right after f
So, my face is so-so. I have these little zits everywhere! So, it's good that they are little, but they are annoying. They are mostly on my chin, my upper lip, and my cheeks. Yeah, annoying. But the ones on my chin and upper lip are my fault, I think. That is pretty much it. Again, less red, but still flakey. Have a good day all! P.S.--I put some images of my clogged pores in my Gallery, but they need 24 hours to load I guess.
So, I thought my clogged pores were getting better then BAM! 3 or 4 clogged pores on my left cheek! BOOOO! How?! You are getting oxygen and are having no make-up put on you. Stop this, lol. My chin also has some little guys (as does my upper lip) but that is my fault because I didn't put BP there (as I have previously stated). Freakin' clogged pores... Less red tonight. I'm always not red at night, just during the day. Weird? Still pretty flakey though. Night all!
So, getting little baby zits on my chin and upper lip...probably because I haven't been applying the regimen there whoops! Lol, so getting on that. Still dry and red. Got asked today if I had a sunburn. I said yes Haha alright update late
So I have a question. I took a nap at work today and tried to stay off of my face and sleep on my back, but I think I rested some on my left cheek. Now I have a random red mark on my left cheek and it's been hours and it hasn't gone away yet. It doesn't hurt or feel like a lump, but is this the beginnings of a new pimple? Ugh if it is I am going to be so mad. This would be like the 5th one in the last two days... It probably is a new pimple
Crap. I think I have a freakin' pimple growing...on my good cheek! Ugh, I'm devastated I think it's because I was too rough. I need to be more gentle dang it! Haha, That's pretty much it. Still have clogged pores and such. Pretty upset about that, but I need to be more gentle, so it's my fault. I used a little less BP this morning again, but the peeling is worse than ever. Jojoba didn't seem to do much...but I hear it takes a week or so to work? Oh, and I also have a pimple above my li
Well, I was too rough once again which is NOT good, but the flakes are so bad. At night I'm less red, which is good...but I am just absolutely flakey! I had to take some off because they looked so pore CLOGGING...it was like a full layer of flakes on my face. I needed at least SOME of it off, lol. I put a little less BP on as well, just to see. I think I'm going to use more jojoba tonight, which, frankly, scares me. However, I am so desperate to be rid of flakes that I'm going to try it. I'M T
Yo, So, I had originally been updating my progress on my regular site, until a fellow member informed me that there was a specific section for blogs! So, alas, here I am! If you have read my progress thus far, this is probably nothing new to you, but for others out there, here is my personal background: Hi all , I am a 21 (going to be 22 in August) year old that just graduated college and is getting married on August 27th. I have an awesome fiance, and I am pretty lucky! (WARN
