All I can say is that I've relapsed and I am absolutely devastated. Maybe it's because my skin was so dry that I stopped using the Acanya in the morning or maybe because I haven't been taking my birth control pills on a regular basis or maybe it's because my time of the month is near, but the acne is back. It isn't as bad as before, but it's back. I tried to exfoliate my skin last night to get rid of the clogged pores and it may have helped a bit, but not to the extent I had hoped. The active near my hairline is still there despite the amount of medication I've been applying. The area around my mouth is an absolute mess. I have at least two actives in the area plus some clogged pores. I've been laying in bed pretending to be sick all day, but truth is, I'm just depressed. I'm not sure how I am going to go to work tomorrow looking like this. All I want for Christmas is clear skin and it doesn't look like that is going to happen and I doubt I'll be clear by the time I go back to school next month. Here was my skin yesterday: not as bad as today.
