Yay! Day 99!! Tomorrow will be my 100th day anniversary! It's exciting...when i look back and see how far i've come. This whole experience really makes you into a different, better...person. During the course there were definitely many ups and downs...but I'm proud that I really learned how to overcome them. Most importantly i'm facing my weakness, and I'm trying not to think about my skin too much....
My skin is really smooth...except for a few clogged pores. overall my skin tone has been looking even but my marks are still clearly visible. I personally think Almay clear complexion concealer, foundation and powder doesn't do a good job on coverage. It's suppose to do less harm on your skin than other foundations, so i'm planning to stick with it till I'm out. During the day my face feels a bit itchy like a piece of hair is on my face..but there is none. I think it's a sign accutane is doing it's job...everyday though the red marks are S-L-O-W-L-Y fading but of course not fast enough. I've been getting a lot of accutane rashes...I moisturize everyday but still my skin feels so rough and dry. Recently i've been putting on more chapstick. My lips get so dry so fast. If i don't put anything on i can just feel my lips crinkling and cracking. Ouch!
I bought Aquaphor but honestly it's not that great as everyone raves....My fav was from Aveeno (can't remember the name, but it's mentioned on my previous blogs) Also Lip Medix Blistex is really good too. Carmex...not so much....taste and feels like medicine..dont' like it at all...and on the back it says to only put it on max 3 or 4 times a day. I need to moisturize my lips more than 3 or 4 times...Just a weeks ago, i didn't need that much lipgloss.
Another awkward side effect is that i flush easily! I've never been a unconfident person...but i';ve noticed when i feel even the tiniest bit uncomfortable/shy i blush so bad...
I feel my face becoming hot like a tomotoe! I dont' know what;s wrong with me!!
My skin looks the best, when i moisturize, sleep and wake up in the morning...seems like the red marks are not as red adn my skin tone just glows!
I've also noticed that my scrateches on my hand (don't know how it happened =( Have been healing rather slowly....
It's alll worth it, I just hope my skin keeps on continuing to improve! I can't wait to start a new career, in a new place, with clear skin!!!
Day 99 and counting!
Good luck to everyone of you who are suffering from acne....I know exactly what you're going through!
