Day 1



so I stupidly picked at the cysts on my face, along with many of the closed comedones that I had on my cheeks for the last couple of months. Scabs from the comedones have pretty much gone, but i have been left with flat, shiny, red scabs from picking the cysts. As soon as I picked i applied ibuprofen gel to decrease the swelling, and i have been putting sudocrem on the scabs for the last two days. As soon as I try and apply makeup, it makes the scabs look wrinkly and i am unable to successfully cover them with the makeup. I'm hoping that the scabs will fall off in the next week, but at the minute they are tight and stretched on the skin, not looking like they will flake off any time soon. The pink marks that i suspect will be left over afterwards are not too much of an issue, as i know they will fade pretty quickly
