Had 2 Weeks Of Great Skin, & 1 Terrible One



I had a couple weeks of great skin--granted, a pore purging here and there, but still, overall a clear complexion.

I could tell that there were still small pores that would purge, but they weren't yet.

Then this past week, my period came (a week early again) and my skin went haywire. I had a bunch of clogged pores pushing out, whiteheads, and deeper pores coming to the surface. In two cases, I made things A LOT worse. I pushed/picked at my skin and in its fragile state, it ripped :/

I have one red mark on my right cheek that's finally healing, and one really bad red mark on my chin that won't seem to heal all the way. I'm hoping it is just taking longer. I've been applying moisturizer to it non-stop for 4 days, along with neosporin.

I'm pretty bummed right now, and I just wish these few spots would heal and clear up. My skin seems to be getting rid of other clogged pores, but it's these marks that are awful to look at/be seen with.

Any advice on speeding up the healing of red marks?
