Today was a pretty rough day. Looking in the mirror this morning actually upset me quite a bit. Although I know that my skin is coming along fine, I didn't like what I saw in the mirror. There were no new breakouts, just the same scarring and comedones, but it made me feel pretty hopeless. Generally I feel the most upset about my acne in the morning. I guess it's because I somehow always expect to wake up and see big improvements. Having patience is difficult.
I got a little sun today and after doing that, putting on my makeup, and getting a nice glass of water, I felt a little better. I also received my De La Cruz 10% Sulfur Ointment and Paula's Choice BHA Liquid in the mail.
I'm feeling pretty optimistic about these products. I have read wonderful things about them and they seem suitable for my current skin problems. My only concern is the number of products I'm using on my skin. I initially wanted to use a gentle cleaner and toner and be done with it... but now my regimen includes 4 products: my cleanser, toner, scar treatment, and BHA liquid. I'm only planning on using the sulfur ointment once or twice a week. But I have only seen improvement with my current regiment, so I'm going to keep at it.
I have also been looking into changing my diet. I wouldn't say that my diet is unhealthy... but there are certain things that I would like to cut out such as red meat and diary.
Anyway... I get to see my boyfriend today and it's Friday. I have no reason to be upset or so down on myself.
I will update after using my new products within the next few days.
Thank you for anyone who took the time to read!
