Okay! So far so good. Today's going to be interesting, though.
It's only been two days, but I'm enjoying this. STILL waiting on Dan's products, but the BP's definitely working it's magic, despite my redness/flakes.
I mentioned in my previous post that I accidentally popped a pimple...woops! BUT, I put some tomato juice on it, and today there was minimal redness and absolutely no swelling. Lovely! I was so excited about these results that I made a tomato juice/seed mask this morning and left it on for about an hour. This didn't really do anything noticeable yet; not sure if it will. The pimples I have right now are very tiny, but very stubborn (resisting to pop them all the time). In retrospect, I probably should just stick to the regimen. I think from now on I'll only use tomato juice in emergencies (tomato juice is also less irritating than lemon juice).
I'm kind of scared about today, since I'll be performing a show. This means I'll be wearing a full face of makeup, which I don't like doing, especially because I have suspicions that I have acne cosmetica from years of putting comedogenic makeup on my face every day. I use Bare Minerals for shows, which I suppose is the safest to use for full, matte coverage. However, I was recently told that Bare Minerals actually turns into a liquid foundation after it sets into the skin. We'll see if it has any negative effects, but one night should be fine. Just have to have a clean brush and be gentle! And the BP should kill anything left over.
Note: I didn't put on Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer today, since I won't be outside until later when I'm wearing Bare Minerals (has SPF). Also, I don't want to layer makeup, since tinted moisturizer technically still is makeup. I used my night cream instead; I figured my skin could use the extra moisture while I'm sitting around all day!
Can't wait to check in tomorrow!
