It's been a few of days since this crazy purging started happening on the right side of my face--jawline, cheeks, and chin. Also a little bit on the far left cheek.
I am happy that the 3 annoying and inflamed actives I had purged, but I'm left with 3 pretty big red marks, all on my right cheek. But, healing is a good sign and I hope and pray this was the worst of the purging that will happen on my right cheeks. There could be some more to come on my lower right cheek though.
My left cheek and lower cheek looks like it will probably have purging next week. Sigh. but I'm trying to mentally and emotionally prepare myself for that. I keep trying to repeat in my head "it WILL get better. it WILL get better." Monday will be the end of week 5 of this regimen and the start of week 6. I'm looking forward to crossing that milestone. I will feel very accomplished and proud at the middle of May once I've been on the regimen for 2 whole months (8 weeks). I have heard from many people that they see less inflammation and purging between weeks 8-12 or after week 12, so I'm praying that's what happens!
Keep me in your thoughts and prayers. This is definitely a roller-coaster!
