i'm writing this because, even though i don't have much of a retin-a related update because i'm still holding off on bumping up to the .1, i'm frustrated about something else that i think people here might be able to relate to. in general i'm not an outdoorsy person, at all. i like to sleep in a bed, shower, etc. my boyfriend loves to camp, and is going camping this weekend. in addition to the fact that i hate feeling dirty, now i ALSO have to worry about my skin. sure, i want to be able to wash my face when i need to, but in the past when my skin was totally clear i wouldn't have worried about it so much/at all. now i'm legitimately scared to go on trips like this, because i don't know what my skin will look like, whether i'll be able to do my morning/night regimen, and if i start to break out i won't be able to wear makeup to cover it. i feel like i'm being so superficial and i shouldn't worry about not washing my face for a couple nights or getting a few extra zits...they'll go away when i get home. i just HATE worrying about that and not being able to enjoy things like this. but i don't want to spend an entire weekend in the woods, all stressed out and self conscious. but should i even care about that? do people have advice regarding that?
