As i inch closer the the 5 month mark, I have come to the realization that once again, I have embarked on a journey that has turned up at another dead end. I officially GIVE UP on my regimen. I am quite proud that i stuck it out this long and I will continue to hang in there until I see my derm or my skin becomes so unhappy. Right now though, I am so miserable with my skin and just at the point where I think acne will have to become a natural part of me like my skin color or hair texture.
As a teen, i would never have thought i would be dealing with this all these years later. It is disheartening to say the least. I dread dressing up, looking in the mirror, planning events far in advance. But i still do all those things which makes me a rock star. My allergies are acting up so on top of acne, dry skin and the like, I have itchy eyes, nose and skin. In any event, on to the update:
lots of comedones popping up around my mouth on both sides. 2 lip zits that may come to a head by tomorrow. Two mouth comedones have inflamed on right side and the rest may or may not join in on the fun. I have a hard pimple on my temple that may be cystic in nature and could take a few weeks to come up and go down. My left side down ears have pimples that are red and hard. Inner cheeks are stable but acne still there. All over face is red and dryish.
Looking like i had a bad tan. Just so over this nonsense.
