Hey y'all grinwink.gif So today is day three using the Acne.org regimen. There's a slight difference since yesterday - not much, but it's still there. The biggest change I noticed was between days one and two of using The Regimen. When I reach day seven I hope to up the dose of benzoyl peroxide. My goal is to be clear in three weeks. But I know these things take time and I don't want to jinx them, so I'll just say I hope to be clear in a month - if not, i'll persevere.

I really do find it difficult to live without the cosmetics, since I have banned them completely. I was invited to my friend's house for a few drinks last night and I had to tell my boyfriend I didn't want to go as I was "giving my face a rest". My friends have never seen me without any make-up (foundation, concealer, powder) and I'm too shy to show them my lovely spotty face. I've figured I'll probably have to live as a hermet for the next few weeks until I can face the world. Thank God college has finnished for summer and I haven't had a job for the past few months (long story-ish). My plan was to go out job hunting but I don't think I can do that right now. I've always been very glamorous and well kept in my appearence. To not wear anything on my face is strange to say the least, I mean my face can actually breathe and that feels nice but... my make-up is my comfort blanket. I don't feel like I can be an attractive, confident woman without it. Heck I'm even part of any online community for people that are interested in, and collect cosmetics. It doesn't help that I have drawers and drawers staring at me saying "Y U NO USE ME NOMORE?"

Oh and FYI all the photos taken for my gallery and blog are taken first thing in the morning. Excuse the pyjamas and messy hair.

Comment below and let me know how you guys cope with the emotional aspects of having acne. For instance, how you gather the confidence to step outside... And not be a creep that lives in a shell - like me! rolleyes.gif

Any fellow ladies out there care to tell me how they're getting on without cosmetics? Or do you still use them, can't let them go?


I'll leave you with the photos: Day 3 on the acne.org regimen. Until tomorrow chums, au reviour!cool.png

your skin seems to be less red and doing better on day 3 which is great news!

I think the emotional aspect is harder than actually dealing with the acne. It can cause so many issues.

Everyone has their own way of dealing with it, the best is to try avoid getting consumed with it and try to live your ife how you want.(easier said than done)

There is nothing wrong with just relaxing and not going out if you feel your skin isn't how you want it, a lot of people have bad skin days.

Sometimes going out with friends or for a walk or talking really helps talk your mind of it and makes you feel relaxed.

The best thing to do is do things you enjoy watch movies, read etc this helps to keep positive and also take your mind of it.

Hope that helps :)

ps. you are very pretty and with or without that nobody can take that away from you!
