Almost a week into my natural regimen. I've had some more drying lately, so I've had to modify washings and applications of tea tree oil. The biggest difference though is that I'm feeling a lot more confident!!! I've never used online forums, but it has been sooo helpful talking to you guys. You're positive feedback and encouragement have inspired me to be more confident in my daily life. For instance, last night I met a nice, cute guy and I thought to myself, "Yeah, I have acne, but people have been telling me that they still find me attractive. There's no reason this guy couldn't like me, not only physically, but also for who I am." Yay for baby steps!
