so I was looking good. Then I went away on vacation and that was not good for my skin. In addition to the stress from traveling, the inlaws and the emotional stress, I also sweat like crazy and the sunblock I'm sure was too heavy for my skin. Also, I had my peiod, so of course, the cystic pimples had to pop up.

So, each day on vacation, a new pimple popped up. My jawline and chin and forhead suffered the most. I sort of picked even on vacation when i had to share a bathroom with other people. so embarassing. The enflamed bleeding red marks. Why couldn't I leave well enough alone? I am so gross!

Now I am home, back with all of my products. so I am trying to gain control. I have picked my shoulders and chest and last night I picked my face. I have about 24 spots and I picked most of those.

So I went to sleep with a sulfur mask. I think it might have helped, but I don't really know.

Here I go again. I forgive myself. I got off track for a week and I need to get myself straightened out. I am in a wedding in 25 days and I have to put my hair up and wear a strapless dress. I want to feel confident about that. 25 days left. I can do it.

I need to get the perfect regimine for my skin. I am on the right track, but it needs tweaking. So lets try to lay it out.

For weeks when I don't have my period:


1. cleanse with cosmedix cleanser

2. phillip's milk of magnesia

3. cerave spf 15 moisturizer

night (sat,sun,mon,wed,thurs):

1. cleanse with AHA cleanser

2. glycolic acid

3. spot treat with bp if needed

night (tues,fri):

1. cleanse with cosmedix cleanser

2. retinol

Week of period still needs some consideration. I tried doing bp when I had my period but dried up terribly. I'll need to come up with something else to do.
