So I called my derm about my lip issues and she said to go buy hydrocortisone and that should help. I started getting these little bumps on my lip line and told her about those as well and since my next appointment is the 28th she said to stick to the HC and aquaphor for now and if I needed a prescription later she'd write one. Besides that I have switched to oil cleansing over cetaphil. It just was not getting my make up off. But oh my-lanta the oil I ordered was Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Oil and it felt so so so amazing. After I was done my face wasn't even tight like it normally is. Granted I still moisturized like crazy but I felt like i maybe could have went a bit without it. I tried Mario Badescue Aloe Vera Toner as well and it kinda made me a bit dryer than I would've liked to be but it seems to calm down some red areas I had.
On the acne front my chin is a battlefield. There's like 3 in a diagonally line going from the corner of my lip down and I'm really hoping they heal this week. Besides that I have a lot of little ones popping up, a medium sized on on my check that's came up yesterday and is healing already (wahoo), and this nasty little thing coming up between the bridge of my nose and my eye. That's a new spot for me and I'm not to fond of it to be honest.
It's weird how I was so afraid to take this medicine but now, even though I'm pretty broke out I know things are going to get better and I'm so excited! Hopefully if/when it gets worse I'm still this excited.
