Breaking out on my forehead and there is one huge spot right under my eye. Hard not to feel discouraged and think like I'm not making progress. Ugh I HATE hormonal acne!! On days like this I wish I was on birth control pills even though the thought of it scares me. I've been neglecting my Retin A so I've been using it again. It could be why I'm breaking out on my forehead come to think of it. Surprisingly, it makes me quite red in the face for about an hour after application which isn't normal for me. It doesn't burn or anything but my face feels really hot so I combat it by blasting the AC in my room to 21 degrees Celsius. 

Why does this acne struggle seem never-ending? Am I going to feel this way about myself even late into my 50s? My mom told me today that now I'm 20, the acne should be decreasing soon. Au contraire, mother dear.
