Update 7/3/06

Hello :dance: I just dropped by and noticed that my good friend StarLogic had updated her album (did you see how amazing she looks????). So I decided that I should update, too.

Unfortunately, the news is not good. I have a flare-up on my left cheek, near my nose. It's a doozy and it hurts and I long for the days when I was only worried about redness.

I found out that if you skip a week of the doing the BP routine (I was getting sloppy about it), you will break out. Add in a lot of stress due to family illness and traveling, and there ya have it. Acne loves to get you when you are down.......

So here's my face this morning. I'm going to the beach now to soak up some good, healthy, Florida sun ;)

    From the album:

    sun + ocean water = clear + perfect complexion .. always has for me .. soemthing about the sun and sea water does wonders for healing wounds. I am soo happy for you! I recently bought the CSR Gel and i like ti alot .. but i got a question bc u have been using it for so long .. does your skin get dehydrated kinda dry and looks like ur wrinkles are more prominent bc of it? That is how my skin looks when i use it for like a week straight.

    Hey! Yeah, the beach was so relaxing. I went back the second day. I'm pretty brown and my skin is looking all glowy.

    I had problems with dryness and wrinkling when I was using Neutrogena On the Spot. Then I switched to the CSR Gel and I haven't had a problem since. Be sure to use a good moisturizer both morning and night.

    lol thank you for the comment :D So how is your skin going? It looks great .. I know you had a little breakout but I suppose it is hard to stay breakout free always even on the CSR Gel :D You still do JessFoliation?

    Ha. Yeah, you're welcome on the comment. I had to go to your gallery to figure out who you are! I've been away a lot so I didn't know you had changed your name.

    My breakout was due to slacking off on the regimen + drinking/eating a lot of dairy. I don't keep that stuff in the house, but at my parents' house the fridge is full of meat, cheese, milk, etc.

    Yes, I'm still doing jessfoliation once a day (or every other day) and couldn't be happier with it. I mean, my skin is still far from perfect. But I'm pretty happy :D It's better than taking drugs, in my opinion!

    I am recovering from a slight breakout too... havent been doing the regimen too much lately (like every other day and not at all on weekends when I am at my boyfriends). My scars are really bugging me though more than the zits- at least the zits are going away.

    thank you for the comment i sure will check out Clinque's eye cream. So how have u been and ur skin? I hope u dont exfoliate more than once or twice a weke with Jessfoliation bc ir ain into problems .. i found out that exfoliating too mjuch causes you to lose a certian skin barrier which absorbs moisture keeping ur skin supple .. well i lost it and my skin became rather dull and i started getting really dry skin. So i currently exfoliate once a week .. and i must say my skins been improving. I found this wonderful site www.vitacost.com and i just bought Derma E Retinyl Palmitate Gel .. its says for wrinkles but it alsso says its great for oily and acne prone skin .. i hear Retinyl is great for oily skin bc of the Vitamin A. This is one of the strongest form of Vitamin A i have found .. i only know of Derma E, VitaminCure and Green Cream everything else u have to b presrcribes. Ceck out the site .. facial products and vitamins are so incredibly cheap!

    Thanks for the info! I checked out the site and you are right. They have great prices. I'll be checking on you to find out how the Derma E Retinyl Palmitate Gel works out for you. I haven't been Jessfoliating much lately because I am traveling and can't find my brush. I have another little brush, but it's too hard on my skin. When I was Jessfoliating every day it made my forehead and chin break out in a million little bumpies, so I started to just exfoliate my cheeks, where my clogged pores are worst. Anyway, for now I am just doing the straight regimen with no other products except my undereye cream. It's the easiest routine to keep up while I'm on the road :|
