Yesterday, for the first time in ages, I left the house without makeup! I was so thrilled I teared up a bit.
I've been continuing my regimen. The only thing I did differently was a glycolic treatment on Thursday because my skin was still pretty dry from that baking soda exfoliation. I find glycolic acid is really helpful in removing dead/dry skin without doing any damage.
When I woke up yesterday morning the cyst that was forming on my chin was completely gone. Vanished. And without having grown to significant proportions! I continued to treat the cyst on my cheek with hydrogen peroxide (just once a day since the initial experiment) and it's now just a red spot. Nearly all of the other red spots are gone. I have no active blemishes on my face and just one on my neck and one on my chest. Huzzah!
It was sooooo wonderful to be out sans make up. I even attended a party. I usually don't use eye make up because all the foundation and concealer makes me feel overly made up, but I didn't have to worry about that last night. I got to use some of the many eye shadows I've had stashed away.
On a not so happy note, my back is breaking out. It's not horrible, and I really think it's just that I can't wash it very well and it's been reallllllly hot. I'll have to invest in some sort of implement...
