Day 8

Hope This Works!


Good skin day, surprisingly! Whiteheads that popped up yesterday (possibly due to Jojoba oil?) are almost gone, and I have probably 4 active spots left that are minuscule and easily covered with Bare Minerals concealer. My skin feels probably about the best it has in a while - not tight or flaking! Maybe I'm finally getting acclimated to the BP.

Last night, instead of mixing it in with my foundation, I used two drops of Jojoba oil to remove my makeup, and then I very gently rubbed a few more drops into my skin with my fingertips to rub all the icky flakes away. It seemed to work! Then I washed my face and applied moisturizer as usual. This morning - no new pimples, and my skin felt amazing. I hope it's not a fluke and I wake up tomorrow with awful whiteheads.

Another thing - yesterday I drank 8 glasses of water with three tablespoons of lemon juice mixed in. I've always found my skin looks much better when I drink a bunch of water, but I'd never tried lemon juice before. It seems to help the redness. Additionally, I eat 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic everyday. Definitely noticed a difference since I started doing this, about three weeks ago.

nice! keep it up. jojoba oil really helped. also, documenting is by far the best stress reliever and keeps you focused on the goal. If you could, try and write more often about your acne. It helped me tremendously
