almost at 8 weeks! this weekend i felt pretty good about my skin so i didn't wear makeup at all (except for a wedding ) unfortunately when i washed my face last night i saw two inflamed whiteheads on the left side of my face in the morning they were smaller but still there...i used to try to rub whiteheads off as soon as i saw them so they could start "healing"...but i've found it's better to just let them dry out on their own...less redness that way. i really loved not wearing makeup all weekend...it's kind of habit during the week but i'm going to europe for work for a couple weeks (leaving on saturday!) and i plan to not really wear makeup while we're there. i do think my forehead looks smoother, even in my gross office light, which is awesome. i'm hoping by 12 weeks i'll be in good shape! i'm still getting what i think are hormonal pimples even though i'm taking spiro...i'm wondering if an increase to 75 mg/day would help, but my derm doesn't want to because he said it's not that bad. you never know how much of a difference those slight increases can have though. he did say i could maybe try doing it, but didn't really suggest it to me...maybe i'll give it a shot just the week before my period to see if it makes a difference. has anyone tried that?
