Bad news. I've got 3 new cysts on my chin. I've a feeling it's the jojoba oil. I went back to aveeno yesterday and my skin (while still feeling like it was burning) didn't break out this much. I figured it'd be ok to go back on the jojoba since the burning feeling didn't go away - but I've broken out more on both days I've used it, so I think I'm going to have to rule it out. Sigh.
I had to go and buy some new clothes for tomorrow's film shoot - which brought me face to face with those delightful overlit changing room mirrors. GAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! I seriously looked like a burn victim. Or someone that's recovered from a recent skin peel. To be honest, I was still fine with the redness and even the painful burning feeling cos I didn't have any new actives - AND THEN - got home, washed my face and realized I had 3 new cysts on my chin. Painful too, of course.
I don't know how I'm going to do this filming tomorrow - which really sucks considering how much I've already prepared for it - I doubt there'll be any close ups on the extras - but my skin's so bad right now I'm genuinely afraid that when I show up to the set they're going to tell me to go home.
Skin product changes: I stopped putting on my isotrexin (powerful topical gel) since my skin's felt so dry the last couple days. And needless to say - going back on the old Aveeno tomorrow.
4 new actives
