Over the past nine days my skin has been consistent. I have fewer pimples, but the ones I do get are more aggressive and red. My chin has been most problematic but I'm not sure why. My forehead is still by far the worst area, though, since it is so bumpy and red. There are small, raised bumps maybe a fraction of a millimeter in diameter all over my forehead that I just cannot get rid of. I have a hard time leaving the house without a hat on, even though I know I would be better off letting my skin breathe. Old marks are quickly fading, but my face seems to be constantly red. All dryness seems to be behind me, and I don't think it will be long before I start to see dramatic progress. It isn't easy to stay optimistic when improvements are so subtle and slow, but I'm trying to keep positive.
