So the good news is that I had no new acne when I woke up this morning - yay! In fact, a lot of my right cheek has dried up and the inflammation is down. I did a salt soak last night and this morning, which I think has really helped to heal the existing spots up. Though the salt does make me quite itchy, so maybe I need to take it easy with that. I'm going to give my face a break from the DIfferin this morning as well - I usually put it on twice a day, but it does make my cheeks very red.
The bad news is that the spot on my left cheek has turned into a horrible cyst-type lump. I think this is because I picked at it when it was tiny, and now it has sought its revenge. I'm just going to ignore it and hope it goes away in the not-too-distant future.
It is now two weeks exactly since I cut out refined sugar, and I have only slipped up once with a shameful after-dinner mint in a restaurant. The sad thing is that today I have to bake cakes for our relatives who are coming to visit - it is going to be quite hard to resist. I also have a head cold which doesn't seem fair since I have been trying to eat so healthily. But never mind.
So, apart from cyst-gate, things are looking good.
