Day 38 on DKR (No makeup)

Well I do have lip balm on but, I don't think that counts.

I was actually shocked when I uploaded this picture. My skin is so different looking than in the bathroom mirror. In the photo my skin is damned near porcelain like. In the bathroom is looks orange, blotchy, scar and red mark ridden. I officially will take a picture of myself whenever I get really depressed in the bathroom. ESPECIALLY before I try to rationalize picking at something

      looking good :D

      my skin also plays the camera mindgame. i think it looks like shit, but in pictures its not so bad.

      as a fellow picker i can be pretty sure its cuz we zoom in on our skin and examine it at every possible angle searching for the next victim. :dance:

      anyway good to see u! im always curious about what everyone looks like

      I love your attitude towards this. "Month 2, acne prepare for hell." It reminds me a lot of me when I was doing the regimen. I'm commenting because our skin types seem similar to me, only my breakouts are/were way more severe.

      Whatever you do, don't pick or pop anything! I know whiteheads are disgusting looking sometimes and if they pop on their own that's one thing but it reeeeeeally is better in the long run if you don't touch your face at all.

      Seeing that you're 2 months into the regimen I am excited for you and hope that you stick with it because judging by the way it worked for me I think it will work for you as long as you keep doing it no matter how bad the breakouts get...

      I know you said in your bathroom mirror your skin looks way different but it really is not bad at all. I was on Dan's regimen for like 3 years and when I go back and look at all the photos I posted over the span of that time, there were times I was complaining about something I shouldn't have opening my mouth over because my skin had improved ten-fold but I was just too critical. Remember that we judge ourselves the hardest and try not to stress over your acne, because it's really not too bad :D

      Good luck and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask or check out my gallery for some inspiration. Although the CSR didn't clear my acne entirely it sure made a big difference for me and I think it will for you too.
