Day 9 - Least Dryness Yet?

Skin Condition

  • Per usual, my skin looks the least red in the morning
  • Lots of acne marks still on my cheeks, no surprise
  • The pimples on my lip continue to shrink and dry out
  • The three tiny whiteheads on my chin have reappeared despite popping them so I guess thats a sign not to do that again
  • I actually woke up with what i would describe as slightly OILY skin. Wow. Thats the first time that has happened since I started this treatment. It wasnt gross oily, but like, healthy oily.
  • The one pimple on my forehead is almost gone
  • The deep "underground" pimple still seems to be slowly dissapearing
 
Application
  • This morning
    • I washed my face with my sulfacleanse (Im careful not to rub this in for too long because it can be drying. I dont use too much soap in the mornings)
      • I took a warm wet washcloth and GENTLY used circular motions to remove all the dry skin that needed to be shed, which wasnt much at all this morning
    • I applied a thick layer of moisturizer
    • After that dried I applied another layer of moisturizer in the areas that needed it
  • I took my doxycycline
  • I applied some makeup
    • (ive been getting into doing makeup on evenings before i go somewhere with friends)
    • I applied green primer to combat redness
    • BB cream on problem areas
    • concealer on stubborn pimples
    • light dust of translucent powder
  • Before Bed
    • Washed with cerave hydrating cleanser
    • waited 20 minutes (usually durring this wait, my skin feels super dry and taut but it didnt today)
    • Applied a pea sized amount of adapelene
    • waited 5 minutes
    • applied moisturizer
 
Feelings/Thoughts/Observations
  • Today has been my least dry day yet where the only flakes were on my upper lip and eyelids (the eyelids still confuse me since im not applying adapelene there)
  • The big underground pimple continues to show improvement
