Another day, another dollar. I'm currently at work on a Friday afternoon and thought hmmm I haven't updated my "blog" in a while. Obviously when we have a breakout, we jump onto google/acne.org in the hopes of finding an answer. I'm just going to paste my skincare routine from my prev blog entry & then add some notes. This is less boring then reading paragraphs.
Just to update you though, my acne has now shifted from my cheeks (relieved not to have to deal with constant cysts) - to my forehead, but only localized on my right side - not sure if this is hormonal, seems to flare up around TOM. I always feel like forehead acne makes your face look yucky if you have ANNNYYY tips to get forehead acne under control please please please let me know. The struggle is so real right now.................

I'd say I was 80% clear compared to my acne at it's worse (while on Yasmin ARGHHH) but this forehead thing is distressing.
Bye for now
