AHA really stung last night, but this morning almost all my blemishes were healed. However, I couldn't resist "cleaning" my clogged pores and scrubbing my flaking skin off, after 3 days of not touching them. We'll see if I break out. So far I think I did aggravate one blemish (it's inflamed now, and it wasn't this morning), but that's the ONLY active blemish on my skin right now. I have 2 healing blemishes left, everything else is just red/brown stains (and even these are fading, although they're still pretty bad and extensive, so I can't go without makeup yet).
So back to square one on the picking front. sigh.
I'll also try the jojoba oil massage/cleanse the way Cool as Kim Deal recommends, on the weekend when I don't use makeup, and in the mornings.
I wish I had the guts to take pix to show you all, but it's just too embarrasing. I really admire those of you brave & generous enough to bare your skin for our benefit.
Good skin to all!
