Day 7



Things are going pretty well!

I've had a few weird dreams, but I've been sleeping like a baby. The best sleep ever.

Skin wise, I've been drying out a little, but not a lot. I actually started really looking at my skin and its characteristics, and realised that it's actually dry and flaky, but very oily on top. I read somewhere that it could be that I actually have dry skin, not oily, and by using 'oily skin' moisturisers, I'm actually causing my skin to produce more oil.

2 nights ago I cleansed my face with Shu Uemura cleaning oil and used bio oil afterwards to hydrate my face. I woke up with perfectly dry, soft skin. But then I showered and cleaned my face with Cetaphil cleanser and my face dried out so much it was shiny and painful, so I'm thinking the Cetaphil is too drying for my skin.

I'm going to try cleansing in the morning with oats (as I used to a while back and it worked amazingly) and cleansing at night with the Shu Uemura.

My face has gotten really red, but I'm not sure if that's because of the reaction to the Cetaphil this morning, or the hot flushes. Will try my different routine tomorrow and see if that helps!

No pictures this week, but acne wise, there have been no real changes. Exactly the same but... redder. Fingers crossed for next week!
