Around last mid-week I began to notice my skin getting red breakouts on my forehead and on my chin and the left side. I don't understand why this could be, especially since a lot of progress has been made so far.
I'm trying to figure out why this may be and have come to the conclusion that it may have been the olive oil I was putting on my face, or the SPF 70 sunscreen that my dermatologist gave me (which is Neutrogena and full of chemicals). Or it could be a combination of both.
I stopped using both because those were the two things that I was doing differently thus far. I am not happy about this, especially when I have my own self to blame for making my progress worse. I haven't noticed a difference yet, so it's too soon to say if those 2 things impacted my skin in a negative way but I'm keeping a close eye.
That is it for me, but wanted to update about this part. It's sad though because my skin was so dry, my nose felt like a crispy chicken and the olive oil was the only thing that seemed to help. My dryness has subsided but I think it may have to do with the fact that I'm also trying to be more hydrated.
I guess my lesson is to not get too comfortable, but it's okay, it's still such a great improvement than before. Also, worse case scenario I'll just be on it for the rest of my life.
