Day 4 was a big, big improvement! Having stayed out of the sun, I noticed no new acne marks. The others are now having to heal so that will probably take a few extra days. Again, completely keeping my face out of the sun and continuing to force myself not to pick.
Otherwise, I really don't have a lot to say. I feel like the plugs all over my face are starting to get looser and looser. I really just think my face is ultra sensitive. Some parts are just not made for a lot of sun exposure. And as of now, I cannot put lotion on my face so no sun it is!
Oh, I also made another adjustment. I tend to sleep in the fetal position with my blanket pulled up to my face. I am trying to fall asleep without having the blanket pulled up to my face so it will not touch the parts of my face that are breaking out worse. If I sleep on my pillow with just my cheek touching I don't have any problems. However, the side of my face around my chin breaks out badly where the blanket touches it. My guess is that its too much like wiping my face with a washcloth. Needs to be left completely alone - therefore, I am being more conscious about that.
Some of the things I am trying are great because I realize what is probably causing my acne now that I am not washing my face. Taking everything I consciously do to my face away makes me far more aware of what is causing acne in the first place. Sensitive skin, man. Gotta be so careful!
