27 Days Later



I fail at blogging. Seriously. Really. It's nearly been month since my last post.So long that I forgot my username and password and had to have it mailed to me. Oh yeah. It happened. BUT, on the bright side, I'm finally getting to check this off my to-do list. (YAY!)

Soooooo, it's been some rough weeks, kinda like last time. Around mid July I'd written down that my skin was doing so much better, feeling better, etc., and suddenly one morning I woke up to my face completing breaking out and nearly taking me back to day one. It was absolutely terrible and I have no idea what happened. I wanted to cry. I thought there was no hope. I was ready to break pencils in half and throw rocks at random people on the street and make a formal speech saying goodbye to the universe because I wanted to go hide in a hole for the next few years.

Not really. But a little bit. It's thankfully gotten back on track for the most part. I think it might have added some new spots of hyper pigmentation (I really hope that's the right term...I'm sorry if it's not and I look like an idiot right now. You know, maybe I'll just call them red spots), there's a lot of spots where it looks like a zit is fading away, but otherwise back to "normal." And normal to me is...

Za Good

Jojoba Oil - It works! After reducing the BP, the flakiness susided for the most part so I went back to jojoba oil. I used it at night, and when I wake up in the morning my cheeks have a nice pink tint and my overall skin looked smoother and more even. YAY for jojoba oil!

Za Bad

finding balance - I'm not sure why, but I'm having a hard time finding the right amounts to use of each product. Using too much BP seems to dry me out, and when I use three pumps of lotion recommended it doesn't all absoarb and I'm left with this layer of orange yellow stuff on my face that clumps with flakes and makes me oily after about 5 hours. When I don't get it just right, breakouts come back. ...it is three pumps, right? or is it two? flabbernuggets.

Well, I think that's about it for today, folks. I've been reading some other blogs, and I admire you all for putting your stories up here. You're not suffering alone! We're here for you! And for all the sucess stories...thanks for giving us hope!!

Oh, and if you wanted to know about the visualization and jojoba oil info: graze of the "Acne Info" tab at the top of the page and wait for it to pop down, then graze of "More info" wait for another pop down, graze over "Even more info", and both Visualization and Jojboa oil will be there kind of near the end. Read it. Know it. Love it.

Annnd finally, here is to Pinnochio.


(: he's cool.
