Not good

Hey everybody! I'm very depressed about my skin right now. It has gone down hill a lot in the past month. Funny how things seem to go bad for me in the Autumn :D

I'm still doing the CSR morning and night, so I don't have the big inflammations OR cysts at all anymore. This time, the acne is little bumps under my skin and all over my face. I just took these pictures and I am aghast!!!

    Hmmm. It almost doesn't look like acne. More like a reaction to something? Possibly from travelling and using different water on your face? I dunno. But I do know you are BEAUTIFUL!

    I agree with the above post. You are beautiful inside and out. Youre always writing such lovely, positive messages for everyone and your skin has made amazing progress so I know that must feel crap to have a blip. Thats probably all it is though, like you said, maybe change of season? Anyway, hope whatever it is sorts itself out soon. you deserve to feel smiley :|

    You people are so sweet :| Thanks for your comments. I think you may be right about the exfoliating, but I'm not sure...It gets confusing when I try new things! Even though the exfoliating helps immediately to unclog the pores, it did make my skin irritated in some places.

    Also, I realized this afternoon that the brush I am using to apply makeup may be irritating my skin. I changed to Neutrogena Sheer Minerals makeup about 6 weeks ago. It comes in this applicator with a brush attached and you just brush it onto your skin. It's very light and looks good. But I could be brushing my skin too hard with it. I dunno...

    I don't follow this regimine so I don't have any advice for u. But let me say wow! you're skin has improved so much since your first pic despite the small break-out you're having right now it still is so much improvement. You are a very beautiful woman.

    celebration, you have made so much progress that you are still ahead of the game after this small set-back. About the new makeup brush...do you wash it? I wash my brushes with baby shampoo.

    I stopped using the Neutrogena makeup 2 days ago and my bumps are going away! I'll update with a new picture in a few days. I wanna see if this really does the trick.

    I like Bare Minerals. It goes on really easy. It's strange that you have been using that makeup for 6 weeks and it's just starting to give you a reaction, but I guess reactions can be strange in themselves! I'm glad to hear the bumps are going away. They probably are a bad reaction because they are not characteristic of your particular type of acne. Can't wait to see improvement pics!

    Actually, I think my skin has been getting increasingly bumpier for a few weeks. I also don't think that this is an allergic reaction. I think it's a case of bacteria building up in that weird brush. Or maybe the brush itself irritating my skin. Or maybe both! Before, I used a liquid foundation that I applied with my fingertips. Now, I'm using nothing at all :| Gotta find a light coverage foundation that works....

    celebration, since I posted my last post, I was looking in the makeup help forum and people have said that they like Joppa Minerals. I looked at their website (www.joppaminerals.com) and they are sooooo much cheaper! Then someone told me that it covers so much better so you use less and, therefore, it lasts longer. Not to mention, there is a very low incidence of irritation and breakouts because they use only natural ingredients. When I run out of my current supply, I think I will try Joppa!

    I would definitely recommend Bare Minerals to you. Mineral makeup is the best and in my opinion help with clearing your acne. Since I started using it I have been getting less breakouts and it just makes your skin look healthier and nice. I would definitely try it...I buy it from QVC. Let me know if you have any questions.

    P.S. Your cat is sooo cute and you look really great. :|
