So, today is August 1st. My junior year of high school starts in 9 days. I have 9 days to get my skin looking better. I worked out this morning, showered, and followed Dan's instructions on how to apply the BP and moisturizer. I went to church, and when I got home, I was pleasantly surprised with my skin. I had 2 pimples that had heads, so I popped them, then applied more BP and moisturizer. I don't know if this was smart. I also peeled some dead skin off my cheeks and chin. I have a lot of flakes on my cheeks today. I don't know if I should leave them or peel them off. Usually, when my skin gets flaky, I will use a scrub to wash away the flakes. Dan said nothing about a scrub in his regimen, so I will not use one. My left cheek looks a little bit better.
I am SO glad that I didn't take that annoying Iodine-filled multivitamin today! I took the Zinc, fish oil, and Amoxicillin, though. I feel good about that, but the Zinc did make my stomach feel a little queasy. My skin is pretty used to BP, so I was able to use a good amount on my face. I used to put the BP gel only on my blemishes, but now I put it all over my face because Dan said to, and Dan has great skin. Although my skin is really flaky, it doesn't actually feel that dry. It feels okay..My chin just burns a little where I peeled it. Oh, well.
I am eating SO well, and I am getting sick of it. I feel like I can't eat anything normal because I have broken out. I haven't had chocolate in over 3 weeks. I never eat my favorite Nature Valley Granola bars. I haven't had dairy all summer, I think. All I have been eating are apples, Flax cereal, black bean soup, tomatoes, carrots, and celery. What a lame diet! How boring! I just want to have clear skin again so I can feel GOOD and eat NORMALLY.
I don't want to go ANYWHERE because of my skin! I only left the house twice yesterday. I spent the rest holed up in my room...seriously! I am not living because of my acne. I am practially a recluse. It is so depressing. How I wish I had never taken that multivitamin. I wish I was an adult so I could have clear, normal skin. Mine is just such a mess. I WANT TO FAST-FORWARD MY LIFE TO A TIME WHERE MY SKIN IS CLEAR! Life with acne is just miserable. Absolutely miserable. I have this GIANT pimple on the right side of my nose...nasty. What happens to a pimple that I never pop?
