Hi, it's been a while! Well my skin has been great overall, the tone of it is getting clearer with the help of this sunny spring weather. I'm extremely happy because I can see my freckles! Back before getting acne I hated my freckles, but now I couldn't be happy to see my little friends appearing again. When I had acne for the past three Summers I couldn't see any freckles, basically because I couldn't see any decent skin under the lumps and bumps, and I really missed those little guys. Being able to see freckles popping up every day reminds me of when I was younger and clear skinned, it's funny how opinions on appearances can change when something like acne hits you, you stop taking little 'imperfections' for granted.
I've been logging any pimples that have been coming up in a diary, trying to find if they correlate with some external variable, like food or emotions. So far nothing has jumped out at me, it just seems to be worse in the gap in my pill cycle, so I think hormones could well be the cause. The spots I have been getting are of a different standard to what I got before accutane. They're not really spots a lot of the time, they remind of me of that little sharpish bump you get in paper after proding it with a pin. It's been a few weeks since I've had any sort of spot, so that's a good sign.
Hopefully this Spring/Summer will improve my skin even more, just a few little red marks left now. I'm looking forward to having even more freckles
