Even though it doesn't feel like it, it is officially Spring. I am so over the winter.
Skin wise, my skin is in dire straits at the moment. My period ended today and I continue to break out. I am surprised that my forehead is getting new comedones each day but less surprised that my chin has massive bumps (this seems to be a regular occurrence every other week or so). The area between my nose and mouth also has a few spots. My diet has not improved consistently since my last post and I think in my mind, i have given up on this ever getting under control. I feel hopeless in regards to my skin. My derm has done all that she can do for me at this point. When i see my naturopath in April, I will express my lack of progress and see if it is time to look into more testing for food allergies and such.
I sat down and calculated that i have suffered from some form of acne for about 20 years (give or take 3 years that i was clear from taking accutane). Those numbers are so depressing. I've been journaling these negative feelings and I find it helps me to not let them take over and send me spiraling back into depression. Anyway, I'll be sure to check in either in the summer or after my next appointment with the naturopath.
