Back to work today and my skin feels a lil like sandpaper. It is not unbearable by any means but it is not pretty either. The dryness is really kicking in but my breakouts are still slowly but surely fading. My skin is a bit redder mainly from the dryness caused by BP I think. It is kind of weird to think that BP is actually irritating your skin at first which is what we all try to avoid to "cure" our acne... But sometimes it has to get worse before getting better.
I meanwhile decided to stop taking my oral contraception because it was doing nothing good for me right now and I do not really need it anymore. Why taking fake hormones if you do not have to?
My eyes are still red and irritated but I tried to apply my eye cream before the BP as I read on one of the forums and it seems to help. I will keep doing it this way from now one. My forehead is still grainy but I think it is a little better too and my cheeks are clearing up. I will have hyperpigmentation, nothing really really bad but as long as they can be hidden with foundation I am ok with that for now. Will beat them with some AHA as a New Year Resolution.
Tomorrow I will try to wear my contacts because I have a huge meeting to attend. Hope my eyes will not be too sore after that. I will switch to a liquid foundation too probably a BB cream not to enhance the flakes of my skin.
Ok have to go now my skin is screaming for its night shot of jojoba oil
