Holy itchy red skin, batman!

This BP is really keeping my skin itchy and red especially around my mouth area and on my cheeks where I have large pores. I also have to be careful not to get it on my scar (from when I was a toddler) which is near my eye because it gives the shallow scar a lot of red patches.

I feel like scraping my skin off with my nails!

I've used the Avene thermal water mist (any water will do, really, as long as it's not too hard from the tap) to spritz my face if I feel it's REALLY itchy and avoid any rubbing or scratching. The itchyness is bearable after about an hour of having BP on.

As well I noticed that my makeup definitely ended up looking more cakey with dry skin patches. It's okay cause my skin is OVERALL clear besides the scarring and the 2 pimples on left cheek. I would rather deal with dry flaky skin than acne and acne marks. I think I will stick to using the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer for a bit. It doesn't emphasize dryness the way a few other foundations I have do so.

And my one "period pimple" which I thought wouldn't be so bad, is pretty damn BIG. I believe it's a papule so I can't pop it. Even though it's big (pea sized), I can cover it up pretty well with MUFE Full Cover concealer. Used it today and it didn't draw any extra attention to me. I'm sure it'll go down soon. I should try a home remedy spot treatment, but I am SO lazy to. I'll be going to bed sometime after this post.
