Well my skin was looking great 3 days ago. I, however, did some plowing for our recent snowstorm and I didn't moisturize before I went out at 4 a.m. When I came home my face was beet red. I think it was a combination of not moisturizing any extra (the wind/snow/cold was quite damaging) and the fact that I put on a little extra BP that night. Anyhow I have one pimple that healed already that sprouted on Christmas day, and currently I have 2 active pimples. I also have a pimple that isn't inflamed that is about to come to a head. It very well might become inflamed by tomorrow morning, though.
What is interesting is that every pimple I have gotten in the last 5 days (only 3) was a clogged pore that was sitting on the surface. It appears that the BHA is purging the existing clogged pores (which I am happy about). Hopefully it will start to work on the blackheads. '
I also increased the nightly BP to 1 and a half pumps. I still don't use much on my forehead and nose, but I do use it on my neck too, so I need to use enough to get a generous amount in the areas that I am concentrating on.
As I said before, my skin was looking great (very even toned, nice overall) before the snow plowing. Hopefully this irritation subsides soon.
Hope everyone had a great holiday
