I've got about 7 active whiteheads at the minute! These are all the ones that have been coming up for the past week that I thought were clogged pores. Luckily only two of them are actually obvious, both on either side of my chin area!
I haven't picked them though - day 5 of not picking!
Aside from the spots coming up I can see other clogged pores though which disheartened me a little as no doubt they will be coming up into whiteheads soon too. Ahh well *sigh*
I did however attack a blackhead on my forehead this morning (after it was clear as well I know, I could kick myself believe me!) It didn't even come out! So I've just got what is gonna look like another hair straightener burn to the head! Luckily the other scab is becoming less obvious every day and I think it will drop off on its own in a few more days.
I'm not going to count that as picking mainly because it was only one, nothing came out aaaaand it wasn't the usual spot that I wanted to stop myself from picking i.e. whiteheads. Ok so I know it would still class as picking really but I have to give myself some leeway and I really think starting out counting at day one would depress me and I have been doing soooo well, especially with all these whiteheads sprouting up!
