This week I broke out pretty bad. The next day after last week's post felt like a nightmare. Mentally draining too as many people commented on my skin. Week 6 has not been promising.
I had two very very stubborn pimples on the right cheek that kept reappearing but I admittedly kept prodding at it.
My left side broke out a little but nothing too crazy and went away quickly.
Forehead was great *thumbs up*.
I MUST mention that I have switched up moisturisers AGAIN. Still Avene, but I k
Before I start, it seems as though I break out on Sundays haha! Just not my day.
My forehead has improved. Just need to deal with old marks.
My right side had a small outburst of two large pimples, not visible in the photos as they only really protruded this morning.
My left side is breaking out a little but they remain under the skin. Also need to deal with a lot of marks. Really hating this process as I would not usually break out on my face. Usually only my forehead or T-Zone.
My week started off rough. Many break outs, redness and texture wasn't good. I woke up this morning and saw noticeable improvement. I hope this is the turning point. The thing is, my good and bad days alternate. Every time I think I have a good day, the next day will 100% be bad and vice versa.
My left side has more break outs than the right. It's the most reactive area of the treatment. Although there are many dark spots, only 3 of them are under the skin pimples or something and they just
NOT a good week. A mixture of things that might've affected this: TOTM, stress, changed from Clarins cleanser to Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub, using more make up to cover dark spots and just got the flu. Apparently the third week is the purging week. :'(
The start of the week was looking very hopeful, but it just got worse through out the week so quickly.
First three set of photos: top is Day 21 and bottom Day 24.
Second set of three are yesterday and today's Week 4 mark.
Today is the 3 week mark. I'm having a hard time this week dealing with my dark spots. Although it hasn't gotten worse, I think the frustration of not being able to cover them is getting to me. I've been popping my pus pimples when they're 80-90% done. *slaps hand*
I guess there is some but little improvement on my skin. Some spots have lightened and texture is continually improving. My acne and scarring is mostly towards the centre of my face so I feel as though people notice this first thi
Wow, these photos sure expose every nook and cranny!
The top photos are from the 2 week mark and the bottom ones are from today.
In 3 days: cheeks' texture has improved little bumps are continually growing on my forehead but nothing growing heads or becoming painful yet face is less red for sure but the improving texture helped that a lot growing pimple under my nose but we'll see how quicky the Eryacne will prevent that from growing too big
Avene moisturiser deserves a big thumbs
I'm changing my Natio moisturiser to Avene Hydrance Optimale. The description says "For dry to very dry sensitive skin" which sounds perfect - also non comedogenic! The only downside is that it does not have any SPF. The bottle is quite small so hopefully I'll go through this quick to buy the same moisturiser that contains sun protection. I applied this excitedly right after I bought it and it seemed to hydrate my brown dry spots immediately.
I'm hoping my cheeks will return back to its norm
It's Winter in Australia at the moment, and if you read my previous post, my doctor specifically said "don't moisturise!" I actually started this new regime on Friday 13 of June, so today is Day 11.
My current face regime:
- Clarins One-Step Exfolitating Cleanser
- Spot treatment with Eryacne
- Moisterise with Natio Daily Protection Face Moisterisor SPF 15
- Trilogy CoQ10 under the eyes
- Remove make up with cotton pad and Garnier Clean Sensitive 2-in-1 only the e
Hi there. Before I start this blog, just a quick introduction.
I am 21 years old Asian female.
After seeing my doc to find a solution for minor scarring on my cheeks, she prescribed me with Stieva-A 0.025% and Eryacne 2%.
She instructed me to use Stieva-A twice daily for a week, and then only at night after the first week, and Eryacne twice a day. She also told me not to moisturise as it will clog my pores. She explained to me that Stieva-A will open up my pimples and unclog my pores. T
