Well the menstrual cycle break out happened. Sigh. 5 big BIG ones on my chin. I mean I'm sure you can imagine the intense desire I have to wear makeup. I've gone to work two days in a row now with no cover-up and I got some nice little subtle comments.
Anyway- the rest of my skin looks great. And EVERYTHING is already drying up. That is what is STILL so miraculous about this- the healing process is definitely sped up and the drying process more successful. Still haven't cleansed my face. Still really have no system daily- I just wash with water when my face feels kinda clogged and dirty.
So- I should get my period in a few days. Hopefully this heals fast and leaves no marks- that is really what I am hoping for.
Also- I have to say that it is totally definite that I have hormonal acne. I believe not washing my face has CLEARED UP any other acne I would get in my non- menstruating weeks. I think that THAT acne was caused by skin sensitivity and smearing crap (cleansers, soap, cream, astringent, concealer, foundation, powder, blush, bronzer- YOU NAME IT) on my face. I just don't think my skin can handle stuff on top of it!
