This week has been hell.....literally and there is no sign of stoppage. On the acne front:
Left side near mouth has 1 huge inflamed pimple that has developed a white top, popped on its own and developed another white top (it's practically pulsing and red)
Below that and surrounding it are smaller red pimples that started as clogs and have gotten bigger
Right side near mouth has a cluster of small redder pimples that again started as clogged and are getting inflamed.
Upper lip has an inflamed pimple that has developed a white top and has another one coming it next to it. Cheeks have the bumpiness and one or two pimples but doable. My laugh lines on the left side have developed clogs which may inflate.
I have a ring of brownish skin around my mouth ( developed after stopping BP LAST TEAR) which is very obvious so I am going to have to be very careful about putting any product there.
My skin overall looks horrible and all I want to do is hibernate.
I haven't used differin in 2 nights and face is definitely less dry. My derm wanted me to stop for two weeks but that's too long. I'm going to reintroduce again tonight with no Aczone and see how I feel in the morning. Maybe I'll do it every other day.
There really is no point in continuing this blog as all I have to report is the negative effect these products are having on my skin
It may help someone else so I'll keep going until I switch up my regimen at which point I will start a new blog.
Thanks to everyone that has supported me, you will never know how much it means to me.
