Week 8



Just finished up week 8 of Ziana. Can't say I've seen any improvements to my skin. I really want to consult my derm to see about starting birth control but unfortunately I've had to keep rescheduling my appt., and so as of now it's not until next month.

Looking at my forehead right now I see 1 large papule and 2 pustules.The impacted pores that I said were receding two weeks ago seem to be coming back. Still breaking out around my jawline and cheeks and everywhere else basically,. I'm wondering if my new foundation (LORAC Natural Performance) may be contributing. At least my chin isn't doing as bad. It's still really dry recovering from previous acne, but it seems to be getting better.

I'm still using almond milk instead of regular milk and taking 1 2000 IU Vitamin D-3 capsule a day. It's been about 3-4 weeks. I've heard a lot of people say they saw results immediately, or at most after a week, and so it's discouraging that I haven't seen anything. Of course I'm going to keep on this regimen, at least until my next derm appt., but I've got my doubts it'll end up doing anything.

To be perfectly honest, I'm pretty sure my health has a lot to do with my acne. It's been so long since I've exercised. I just got a new job, and it's mentally exhausting, so whenever I have free time I want to just stay in my room and watch funny videos or play video games. It's sad, really. That said, I'm going to try to start running again. I really want to see a change.
