Week 7

JDW

So I skipped week 6 due to slackness and lack of anything to really write about

Week 7:

So not much happened during week 6, the most exciting thing was that I accidentally used AHA instead of moisturizer, had to wash if off and was worried that it would make my skin redder which I dont know if it did.

This week everything generally stayed the same, had a few pimples pop up but they were small and sorted themselves out in a couple of days. Lips still look a little funny, mostly around at the corners but the dryness is manageable. (Using pawpaw when at home and burts bees when out due to the appearance they give to my lips). Facial dryness is minimal as long as I moisturize after washing my face, no touch ups needed and face doesn't feel tight like in the beginning. Nose gets dry and bit bloody.

Only real thing I want to complain about, and have been, is the redness in my face. A few people this week asked me if I was sunburnt, I just say yes but how long can someone stay sunburnt, pretty sure not for 6 months. I'm working on the redness and if I could rename this blog it would include the words 'battle with the redness'. I was trying emu oil but ran out so I may get more to try in the future, I didnt notice a huge difference but didnt use it that long. I also ordered some Eucerin redness relief stuff off the internet cause we dont sell it here in Aus and am now waiting for it to be delivered to try that. Since starting tane I've spent atleast $200 on random stuff to help deal with the side effects (moisturizers/lip balms/sunscreen/etc). The Eucerin stuff was $50 due to paying for international shipping. I'm also going to go look at some stuff tomorrow for skin redness and who knows, between my impatientness and impulse buying I may waste more money tomorrow.

I have spent soooooo much money on extra stuff, it's insane, I work next to the chemist and it's open before work, I wonder through and hmmm that could help haha. I'm in Aus too so half the stuff people talk about is not here, but we do have some pretty good stuff aswell ;)

Haha yeah, 'This looks good... I must have it'. Lets just say my eucerin hasn't arrived yet and I may have bought some stuff to try whilst I wait for it. It is annoying when I read a bunch of people recommending the same stuff, googling it and finding out its only in the US, aquafor being a prime example. Also a bit late in my reply...
