I dare not feel happy but I think my skin has finally reached the turning point. The light at the end of the tunnel if you will but I know that tomorrow my view point will be different. But for today I choose to be happy and optimistic. I've been breaking out terribly on my forehead and temple region for some time now. I was very apprehensive about using my Paula's Choice 2% BHA solution because previously I have experienced terrible dryness and tightness across my face. In the morning I apply this solution before putting on my primer and the rest of my makeup. At night, I apply about 3 drops of Banish Vitamin C serum, rub it into my skin for good blood circulation (apparently it's said to help with fading hyper pigmentation marks), allow it to sit for a good 10 minutes or so and finally apply my Paula's Choice solution. Again I rub my skin in circular motions to encourage blood circulation. Much to my surprise, I have not experienced any kind of dryness and tightness whatsoever. It was only today that I noticed some minor flaking with my makeup around my nose. I've been sticking to my birth control pills fyi. Sigh, when will this shit end?
