The dryness has finally kicked in. My skin feels so tight when I am smiling. I does not overly hurt but it does not look super pretty either. I may have to switch to liquid foundation any time soon to prevent my skin to look lizard-like. Liquid is supposed to be more emollient than powder! It is very surprising that my skin texture changed so much between yesterday and today but it is the way it is supposed to be after a week of treatment I think.
I still have a couple of big papules on my jawline/lower cheeks but apart from that my skin seems to heal nicely. It is dry of course, it itches but no real tough redness to declare. If it keeps this track, I will be able to increase the BP amount tomorrow night when I hit the first week mark.
Actually I really like the Cetaphil lotion. Now that my skin has turned into dry leather it is really enjoying its thick layer of moisturizer especially at night. I moisturize twice : one pump 15 min after BP application, then one pump completed with jojoba oil right before going to bed. It really helps with the itchiness I think. I have to see if I can do the same in the morning to prevent itchiness all day long.
That it is for today. Hope the increase in BP will go well. Will let you know.
