So many changes since my last post, and only a few of them related to my skin. 

About a month ago I moved from Asheville to Greensboro for a job promotion. And while it has been an amazing opportunity, it's also been hectic. I've been sick twice during that time, including during the actual move itself. I have had to make a lot of adjustments. Although I have been good about keeping up with my skincare during that time. 

One of the set backs has been that anytime I am presented with a different water quality, my skin freaks out. This led to a couple of unfortunate cystic pimples cropping up. It has settled down now, and ultimately the water here is better, but it left behind two scars I'm trying to deal with. Of course. 

My new bathroom also has much brighter LED lighting, so I think I can see my imperfections more clearly. And the lighting at my new job is florescent, which makes everything look terrible. But I try not to focus on that. 

It's difficult knowing that I'm using the right products and having the progress go so slowly. I am aware that it takes time and none of this is a Mr. Clean magic eraser for my skin. But I sure wish it were. 

I feel like there's been a lot of stagnation in my skin. It may just be time to bump up to a higher concentration of AHA and less frequent application so I can work my way back up. I'm not sure. Overall, I believe it has helped. But I still wish I could have the perfect, poreless skin we all dream of. 

But I will keep on and hope that I can continue to make progress, one way or another. IMG_20180218_004353526.jpgIMG_20180218_004357125.jpgIMG_20180218_004401173.jpg
