Day 16



So, as of today one of the cysts on my cheek looks as if it's going to come to a head. Not sure if that's a good thing. Sort of just want it to disappear. Have another small pimple on my forehead and another medium-sized zit on my chin. Besides that, the texture just looks awful. My pores all over are very raised...like everywhere. On my forehead I have defined small bumps, on my nose tons of blackheads, even under my nose blackheads seem to have come out of nowhere. The smaller clogged pores on my right cheek are starting to raise into skin-colored bumps, I'm not sure if they'll become inflamed or just flake off with washing. I guess we'll see. Skin is so. dry. I had a hard time washing my face and taking off my powder because it just stuck to the dry skin. I used my electric facial brush which seemed to help. I'm really just so ready for my skin problems to go away. I hate having to wear make up so much and be scared of fluorescent lighting. Oh and I'm putting chapstick on every hour. Really hope the IB stops soon. woidlkweuwiofejlkd. Encouragement would be much appreciated.

I know exactly how you feel. I have a lot of closed comedones all over my forehead, chin and jaw-line. I also have blackheads, cysts and pustules -_- There is not any part of my skin that is clear. It is also incredibly flaky, and the years of using BP have made it very thin too.

The fact that your cyst seems to be coming to a head is good, as this means it will likely go away within a week or so depending on the healing ability of your skin. You may be left with some hyper-pigmentation, but this will go on it own in time.

Remember that acne doesnt detract from your looks at all. Stay positive

I completely feel you. I'm so ready to be done with acne forever. It's annihilated my self-esteem and definitely provoked bouts of depression. Are you on Accutane right now? Thanks so much for the support. The redness also makes it look soooo bad.

Hey girl! Just wanted to say to keep your head up :) Every single day you are closer than yesterday to having clear/beautiful skin! Just think...by Christmas and New Years time you will be done or just about done with this stuff! Soon you won't have to worry about makeup, covering up and checking yourself in mirrors. All your insecurities about your skin will be long gone. You are kicking butt girl

Thank you guys so much for all of the kind words of support! It really does remind me that this is only a small portion of my life and hopefully I'll never have to deal with acne again. Have you been on Accutane PMM1110 or do you plan to? I'm about to update my log so you all will be able to hear more about my progress.

I officially start the 24th....counting down the days and definitely have that nervous/excited feeling. More nervous, to be completely honest. Ready to crush this mess! Welp, keep us updated and can't wait to hear about your progress!
