i'm super glad that, even though i'm exfoliating in the morning and using the retin a at night, when i wake up in the morning my skin isn't flaking off! i actually don't mind how it looks. today is about the same as yesterday--i had a small pimple above my eyebrow from last friday or so that i think is gone. my forehead still have some clogged pores but i think it looks smoother? my mom says that if you have to look that hard for something, no one else will even notice it, so i hope no one else notices those clogged pores like i do. i'm still using bp on my forehead butttt i'm still a little oily there and im wondering if it's because the bp dries it out and it produces more oil. honestly the only difference i've seen in my clogged forehead pores over the last year or two seems to be because of exfoliation, not bp, so maybe i'll stop. it would be nice to get up in the morning, wash my face, and just put moisturizer on. i'm doing a lot of traveling this summer and would love to not have to worry about my skin. i'd also like to wear makeup for fun, not because i feel like i need to cover up my skin and not draw attention to anything else. i feel pretty okay today though!
