The Regimen; Day 7



I tend to overdo stuff. Over-think, over-talk, over-write, over-listen to favorite songs, and over-do. My transition from "a pea-sized amount" of benzyol peroxide to a full finger's length amount was not subtle, which is why I may be dealing with the hellish condition my skin is in now. Anywho. It's too late to go back now and I won't reduce the amount of benzyol peroxide I'm using because I've read that it will only increase the duration of "flaky period" (really, that phrase should be followed by a Danny Elfman composition). And man, does that phrase need to be more all-encompasing. Flakiness is really only a minor side-effect, horrible only because it's so visibly offensive. The dryness/itchiness/tightness/roughness are the real culprits. I feel as if there is a huge rash covering my face and I'm terrified that when I'm asleep, my body will indulge in a full-out itching episode. I had to go to campus this morning because I had an exam and homework to turn in. I swear it was physically painful. However, I was too numb from staying up all night studying to be fully attentive to my skin's condition. Before going to bed, I applied a LOT of moisturizer infused with jojoba oil. Hopefully tomorrow my skin will be in a better condition.
