Day 9 - Spiro, Doxy, Retin-A Micro

Sigh. I guess I'm at the "purging" state right now. I have several new, large pimples, all around the size of a pencil eraser. I also have blackheads surfacing (probably due to the thinning of my epidermis because of the Retin-A), making my skin surface really rough and bumpy. They're coming out pretty easily, though.

My dryness is the worst around my nose, chin, and cheeks. I've started using Bio-Oil on those areas before my morning moisturizer to help get rid of flakes.

The side effects are getting less worse, but aren't completely tolerable yet. Self-esteem is pretty low, depression moderate.
