Dairy Free - Week 2 Update (The Misery Files)



Urgh. So, I am getting a bit despondent with my diet. I had hoped it would have had more impact than it has. There is some good news - I haven't had any deep, under-the-skin spots on my cheeks for a week. But I do have constant, small pimples on my cheeks. These heal a lot faster than the deep ones so I shouldn't complain, but I'm sick of them.

I also woke up yesterday with a small cyst on my chin. This almost never happens, so I wonder if it is this new make-up I have been trying. Clinique usually doesn't break me out, but you never know. Also my skin is very dry and scaly at the moment, I think this results from the Differin. Though my nose is an oil slick as usual.

I'm just tired of this now. I was out today and almost every woman I saw had beautiful clear skin whereas mine looked awful. Also this guy I was seeing ended it with me yesterday, it wasn't serious but I can't help thinking that if I was prettier then I would have more success in relationships. Had a BAD couple of days and would love something good to eat like macaroni cheese, but I need to give this dairy-free thing at least a month to see if it works.

This might just be PMS talking (and I always remind myself that life could be a lot worse) but I am tired of battling with my skin, I'm tired of always being worried when I wake up in case something else has erupted on my face. I don't want to go back on meds but if this doesn't improve over the next few weeks then I'm going back to my doctor.
