Week 3



Everything is still surfacing and a few of my pimples get inflamed... probably from me trying to pop them. I know it is horrible for my skin, but I don't like to walk around with big bumps on my face! My skin tone and texture has never looked worse I don't think... I feel depressed. Today, I went to workout for the first time in a month and I think it's most likely cause I get too depressed to get out of bed for anything other than work and school (the things I NEED to get up for).. I feel horrendous, no matter how supportive my family and boyfriend are... I have never had skin like this so I don't know what to do.. I go back for my one month check up with my derm in a week and I am going to ask to get on name brand ortho-tri cyclen.. she might not want to do it because she said since I messed up the order of my birth control pills over the summer, it might take some time to regulate my hormones again and changing so many things (being that I started solodyn and ziana) can really make things go crazy... I just don't know what to do... UGH. I am so sad.. I feel so ugly...


TONE: hyper-pigmentation everywhere

TEXTURE: little clogged pores all over my jawline

UPDATE: So, I called my derm and asked if it was supposed to be a one month check up or a two month check up because I wasn't too sure. It turned out she wanted to see me after two months of using Solodyn and Ziana. That made more sense since I keep reading that it can take up to two months to see a drastic change. I am so impatient with this stuff!!! UGH... I really hope this will be the answer to my prayers by 2 months of use... On the other hand, I have taken Tri-Nessa consistently for 3 months now... hopefully my body and hormones will be regulated again very soon!!! (FINGERS CROSSED!!!)

Did you know that popping pimples spreads bacteria from inside the infected pustule into the surrounding pores thereby creating more acne? Try to stop. I am on a generic form of Ortho-Tri-cyclen called Tri-sprintec, same difference, cured my breakouts so nicely! Peace!
