Wow, it's been a very long time since I have written an entry! Sorry, I've been super busy with my new job, which I actually happen to enjoy! Update Pics: Redness is almost completely gone. Nothing a little makeup can't fix! I currently have one tiny little zit on my chin, but other than that... NADA! I stopped taking the antibiotics once I ran out (around day 50), but other than that, my routine has been the same. My skin completely stopped breaking out
Sorry, lately I've been super busy with job interviews and working, but I always make sure to take pictures. BUT, as I predicted a few days ago, I BROKE THE HELL OUT! It's absolutely fukin' lovely because my birthday is in 2 days! Yay!! FML And the best part is, I don't think I'm done breaking out because I feel new ones surfacing. Can't wait till tomorrow morning to find 20 more new zits!! Ughhhhh!!! Daily Pictures + Info Day 17 Commentary: I don't know i
I woke up this morning with a big zit on the back of my neck right by my hair line. It kind of hurts but thankfully it's not on my face. I would take a picture of it, but I can't seem to get a good one so I'll just keep you posted on it's "daily activities." I put Ziana on it not too long ago so hopefully it disappears in a few days at most.

Wow, I sure was busy this weekend! I worked all weekend and didn't have much time to update the blog, but I made sure to take pictures in the morning Enjoy!

Last night I went out with a bunch of my girl friends to the local bar and I don't know if I did my makeup really well or if my face looked not bumpy or what not, but I got a "you look beautiful" compliment from an acquaintance. It felt really good! I'm really starting to think the combination of medications the dermatologist prescribed me is spot on! Not gonna lie, I've been pretty worried about breaking out again (as bad as I did on day four) from researching information on my pr
I currently have two zits I really want off the left side of my face, but the right is pretty damn clear. I definitely admit that I look great compared to what I looked like on the 4th-5th day. It's getting there. The redness is slllooooowwwly starting to fade. Thank God!! Day 11 AM after wash Day 11 AM after wash The pictures' lighting taken by the window shows the redness a lot better so I will only take pictures by the window from now on.
Okay... It could be my imagination, but it looks like my chin skin hangs a little lower? Haha maybe I'm getting fat! Also, I realized that my white/black heads are slowly coming back on my nose. Eh, good thing I don't really care too much about them. I'm more concerned about the bigboys taking over my face. Daily picture in the same lighting: Day 10 AM before wash Day 10 AM before wash Day 10 AM after wash Day 10 AM after wash Weird, it looks
My skin seems a lot "happier" this morning. No new breakouts, my face also seems a lot less red and bumpy. I realized that there is a major difference in how my skin looks before and after my shower (but dumbly, I took the two in different lighting). Therefore, today I've got a good amount of pictures to post. I also decided to post my daily routine so I can stick with it. Also for your viewing pleasure Morning: 1. Eat: Raw spinach and whatever else I feel like eating. 2. Shower: C
Ugh my face is really dry and itchy!! I think by tomorrow I will start flaking (I'm not sure how I feel about this). The spreading down my neck has seemed to stop. I really hope the redness in my cheeks will go away soon. Day 8 AM after wash Day 8 AM after wash ***PM Update*** Wow. So, I was inspecting my face after my shower around 11PM and I didn't see any white or black heads in the area between where the side of my nose and cheek meet!!!
I've come to the conclusion this morning that my acne is still spreading lower down my neck, but also finally starting to heal. Why? The bumpiness is starting to smooth out and this morning my face wasn't bright red like it has been for the past few days. I'm thinking/hoping that my face has finally gotten used to the medication.

It's day 6 and my acne seems to be spreading further down my neck. It's quite upsetting. Today I started my new cycle of birth control so lets see if it helps. ::crossing fingers:: I consulted a good friend who went through the whole antibiotic, gel, and wipe routine and she said that it'll get better soon (probably). I hope she's right. Day 6 AM after washing face Day 6 AM after washing face I don't know if you can tell by the pictures but there are
My face is a disaster. I have NEVER seen it this bad. I basically have about a million little zits all over my cheeks. Some are also starting to form on my neck. It's really gross and I really feel like crawling into a deep dark hole and crying. Hesitantly, I showed my boyfriend this morning and he was very supportive. I am soo lucky to have such a great guy. Day 5 AM After shower Day 5 AM After shower Yeah, so basically I look atrocious. Thank Go
Broke out with a million little zits!!! UGHHHhhh Last night my skin felt a little warm and funny, so I knew something was up, but WTF! It's quite bizarre because my main acne problem has always been gigantic zits, not really the small ones. I'm hoping to God they go away soon because my skin has NEVER looked this bad. (I'm almost embarrassed to put these pictures up... If anyone is actually reading this thing, let me know. I'm about to put the setting on private)
I can already tell that my skin got a lot smoother and softer after this morning's shower. But for some reason (could be my imagination or lighting), I feel like my skin got a lot more blotchy... Blotchy as in, redder. Oh well, at least there aren't any new zits popping up!

I realized I don't really like writing blogs. I actually don't mind anymore, but I would much rather post a lot of pictures. Therefore, I will be making this my acne picture blog! A little about me: I am 24, asian, and have had mild-moderate acne since I was around the age of 13. The type of acne I get the most often are the really stubborn, gigantic ones that take about a month to disappear. Yesterday, I finally went to a dermatologist for the first time in my life because I had
