so today is the start of my third week.
it seems like some days my skin looks like it's really lookin good and i get my hopes up. and then the next day it's all bumpy. so that's a little frustrating. so i'm not going to get my hopes up like that so i'm not let down. thinking back to this summer though, my face was a lot worse. so i am happy that i am making progress.
today i woke up and had to pop about 6 whitheads. 5 of them were actually just ones from last night that apparently weren't fully drained. i hate that! i have this cyst on the corner of my chin that will not quit. the stupid thing has come to a head countless times, but it won't die. damn thing. and i had a cluster of 3 big ones in the middle of my cheek which has been lovely to look at. those finally look like they're finished popping and flattening out. i had a huuuge one on my forehead last weekend that is finally about to fall off. other than that, just normal sized ones here and there.
lips are drryyy. i thought my carmex was doing a great job. but little did i know, my lips weren't really dry yet. so eventually i realized that the carmex was just sitting on my dry lips and not being absorbed. so i got some aquaphor like everybody says. i went to rite aid and they had it on sale buy one get one 50% off. so i got 2 for 5 something =) i do like this stuff. when i have it on my lips feel normal. but if i lick it off or something i can't wait to get it back on because that dry feeling is so uncomfortable. i noticed that any pimples that are in the healing stage tend to develop a thick skin covering. kind of like a scab but not. and i peel it off and am left with normal skin underneath. so i like that!
no other side effects this week. haven't had a headache in a few days. probably because i'm guzzling water now. my muscles haven't been hurting either, so that's great.
maybe i'll take a pic tomorrow!
