Haven't updated in a while.

So, I haven't updated this in a while. After being fired from my server job, I asked my manager at my other job for more hours so I am pretty much working every day there. I have been looking for other jobs, but honestly I feel like I don't need to, because I devote so much time this job and get enough hours. The wedding on Saturday went well and although I had hyperpigmentation and a few spots, I think I looked okay. From the pictures taken, my skin looked perfect, but pictures never show what

Day 10- Looking up..slightly

Hey everyone. So, my last post was pretty bad. Saturday night was my good friend's bachelorette party. My skin was scabby, but I tried to cover up the spots with concealer and foundation. It looked okay except for one spot on my lower cheek. No matter how much I caked on the makeup it looked bad and discolored. I sucked up my self-consciousness and ugliness and put a cute dress and went. I did it for my friend and I was glad I did. All of her other friends were beautiful and we had a lot of

Day 9-FML

Just a warning, but this is going to be a depressing post. So, last night I popped the clogged pore that had been continually coming to a head. It didn't budge for a while but I kept at it. I ripped open the skin. Pissed off about that. Getting ready for work this morning was very hard because my skin looked like shit and I couldn't cover it up, I felt so ugly. So, I get to work only to learn that I had been fired. I didn't show up for work one day (I was scheduled at my other job at the s

Day 8-Continuing to Improve

Yay, I have a day off of work today! Gonna go grocery shopping, maybe do some laundry, and wash the dishes. I actually accomplished cleaning the bedroom..very proud of myself. My boyfriend's old roommate that currently lives in NYC might visit tonight, which would be wonderful. He was always very sweet and interesting to talk to. He is an amazing cook, so hopefully I can whip up a few yummy snacks. I'm thinking homemade french fries with different dipping sauces. Ugh, now I'm super hungry. Su

Day 7-Getting a little better

Hey everyone, Today is okay so far. Workers outside my apartment were making a shit ton of noise early, so I couldn't sleep. Ugh, oh well. The spots that I messed with are now scabs so I'll have to wait for them to fully form and fall off. A whitehead formed on my chin (the first in a week) probably because of my diet, late nights, and skipping the BHA one night. I told myself not to pop it and just leave it alone, but I didn't. Its a small red spot. I'll probably ice it a little bit befor


Hey all, Its been a while since I've updated. Been using the BHA at night and sometimes in the morning, but it can be pretty drying, although nothing my Cetaphil moisturizer can't handle. I feel like my upper lip (my most clogged and worst area, damn you upper lip!) is purging the clogs that were taking up permanent residence on my face. I'll admit that I did squeeze a few areas, now my upper lip looks like shit. The BHA definitly makes my skin more fragile so it tears easily when I fuck

Day 5- Paula's Choice

Hey again everyone. Slept in today because I had a killer headache. I feel so much better now though. Its really hot here, especially since we have no AC so I'm pretty much sweating my balls off. Yesterday my Paula's Choice 2% BHA came in along with three samples I chose (skin lightening stuff for hyperpig, BP 2.5%, and a skin balancing moisturizer). My boyfriend is the only one with the key to the mailbox so I had to wait until he got home from work to get it. It felt like Christmas! Whe

Day 4-Looking and Feeling Better

What's up Monday! Early morning cause I am used to getting up when my boyfriend leaves for work. So, yesterday, I popped a few whiteheads and clogged pores. My chin was and still is pretty much looking like a red warzone, my own doing of course. My boyfriend was really sweet and went to the grocery store while I stayed home and cleaned the apartment. I'm glad we got that accomplished. It feels a lot more calm living in a tidy environment. After that I did a Milk of Magnesia mask to soak up


Hello Day 3, Ugh, I hate the summer for making me sweaty and oily when I wake up in the morning. It actually makes me miss 30 degree weather! Last night, while feeling depressed about my looks and everything else, I picked off some scabs that were ready to go. I proceeded to do this for pretty much every other scab. I am left with a face full of red marks, but every spot i messed with was healed underneath, so that is awesome. The way the body heals itself is actually pretty cool. Anyways,

Day 2-skin looking like crap!

Saturday morning, sunny and gorgeous but I am stuck inside covered in scabs. Ugh. FML. Not only are my scabs big and red, but they seem like are gonna take forever to heal and fall off. My skin is also getting really dry, especially on my lips, but still oily on my nose and forehead. I don't want to do any sort of scrubbing, because it might tear off the healing scabs and it also seems to make me break out when I do so. I think my skin seriously hates me sometimes. (I'm sure everyone her


Day 1 of my blog thingy! Hello all. Today is the first entry of my blog about my acne and skin picking problems. I'm 23 and have been dealing with acne since I was 15. It has ruined my self-esteem and affected my ability to be who I want to be. I have tried everything under the sun to combat my acne, including accutane in high school. It really cleared me up, but then I became super depressed so I stopped taking it. A few weeks ago I went to a dermatologist to figure out what to do
