Well, I had a setback for the past few days. It turns out our gas was shut off so we didn't have any hot water for two days. So, I didn't shower for two days. My hygiene turned to crap reading the 6th and 7th Harry Potter books so all I did was lie in bed reading not showering or taking really good care of myself. As you can see, the left side of my face broke out and it's now starting to clear up now that I have hot water and I'm using make up. I also had my time of the month right when my hot water was shut off so that just inflamed my acne. Things are looking up though. The acne on my right side is lessening along with the marks and my face is very smooth besides the blemishes. I believe that with time and continued use of makeup my face will look better and better. I find that using makeup actually lessens my acne. I use Benefit Get Even compact along with this concealer called Galactic Shield that has salycylic acid to fight acne. I find when I don't use makeup I tend to breakout more. Weird. I think it's because I have oily skin and the makeup helps soak that up and keep bacteria at bay. Who knows. All I know is that it works so I'll keep using their products. I'm scared to try a different makeup brand when my face is having good luck with their products. Well, that's about it for the 6th week. My acne really is going away. Unfortunately, the setback with the hot water, time of the month, and lack of hygiene is evident in the pics. I'll see you next week for an update. I'm still using Retin A .025% and Spironolactone 50 mg for all of those who are new to my gallery. Lata.
