So I missed week 5 update due to finals week and craziness with school, but I'll probably start doing 2 week updates anyways since everything is kind of slowing down at this point.
I'm halfway through month 2..woo hoo! Still breaking out but not as much as my IB..its normally 1 pimple at a time so its manageable but so annoying because they take so much longer to heal (1-2 weeks and still left with a nasty scar). Aquaphor and Neosporin help a little bit with the healing time as well as scarring. My skin has definitely become MUCH more fragile. I was using a blackhead extractor tool which never used to damage my skin and the second I tried using it on my face it took off a layer of skin. Never doing that again!
Side effects are still super dry skin and lower back pain..I just ordered Clinique Moisture Surge to hopefully give my skin more moisture throughout the day. By the end of the day my makeup looks very flaky and not appealing. I may try a hydrating primer to help with that too if anyone has any suggestions on brands! My skin is also a lot more red. I always had trouble with flushing skin but it seems to do it much more often now.
Hopefully things calm down over winter break now that I can hibernate in my house for 3 weeks. Until next time!
