I had a dermatologist appointment on the 19th and I TOTALLY FORGOT so I had to reschedule for the 15th of next month
I look through my Bactrim album and I just love seeing how well my skin has been doing in comparison to when I first started. I've still got a lot of scarring, and I still get small pimples here and there, but the hyperpigmentation seems to be fading away, and overall I'm just really liking how smooth my skin feels (AT TIMES. I mean, when it's not feeling super oily. I really think it's my moisturizer.. the Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer).
I actually feel perfectly fine going out in public with no makeup on. I wasn't super big on makeup when I was in middle school/high school. It wasn't until senior year when my acne got really bad that I felt the need to cover my face up.
Nowadays it's like, if I'm going out and I'm trying to look nice, then I'll put on my liquid foundation. But if I'm not in the mood to dress up, I'll just apply a mineral foundation that really doesn't offer much coverage. If I'm not leaving the house (which happened often during the summer) or I'll just be out for 5 minutes, then I won't bother with either.
Basically, I'm feeling pretty good about myself.
Oh, and I've just started my 3rd year of college. It's only been one week, but I know the stress is coming, and I'm hoping it doesn't ruin my face too much :v
