Hi, day 25 is here.
Still no new blemishes. IBO is healing. My skin is dry normally so I use apricot oil to aide in the healing process. I also read about 10% AHA on this wed site, so am planning on using this to reduce the post acne hyperpigmentation. That is sure to be as big as a battle as the acne for me. I tanned A LOT in HS and College to treat my skin-- a quick fix with terrible long term effects-- major skin damage in the form of unsitely melasma. Reading on hyperpig treatments through this web site I found that apple cider vinergar also works as an over the counter treatment. I have tried this and my skin seems ok with it. No BO from it at all. The smell is strong -- so I can only do it when I am staying at home with no obligations to meet.
The Spiro is making me very very very tired. Last night I fell asleep at 7pm after getting a regular 8 hour sleep the night before. This tiredness concerns me. It is somewhat debilitating. Lips are very dry. I keep chap stick with me all the time. I drank approx 90 ounces of water yesterday and still felt dehydrated. This medication takes some work.
Skin seems pretty good though.... is it worth it? Hmmmmm.
