my forehead bumps had improved when i stopped using hats and hoods but these past few days they're back to looking like milia and it's really bothering me. could it be because of the burt's bees shampoo, my bangs or is it really just because it's winter?
i'm not changing my regimen though. i'm gonna be keeping it for at least a month before i make any modifications and before answering dan's survey (you'll see it on the store page of acne.org salicylic acid).
diet-wise, i'm eating breakfast cereals again (not gluten-free) because the smoothies are cold and i feel like i need to eat more, and more often to keep my body warm during this winter season. i think i'm experiencing mild SAD (seasonal affective disorder) symptoms - increased appetite, strong cravings for strong tastes (sweet, salty), sadness, loss of interest in activities i usually enjoy, irritability and thoughts of death. luckily i was able to get up early this morning (around 7:30AM) to start the day right. later i might go to trader joe's or safeway to get something healthy for my comfort food, and maybe buy a bottle of co-q10 as well (i hope it's on sale 'cause it's so expensive).
shampoo-wise, i was wrong about burt's bees super shiny grapefruit and sugar beets shampoo. the itchiness of scalp comes back, although it's mild. it gets worse if i skip a day of washing my hair. but the shampoo doesn't make my flake problem any worse either. there's actually a little improvement, compared to using home health unscented anti-dandruff shampoo.
