So, I ate pizza this week, which wasn't such a good idea, two new pimples. They'e not excessively huge, but I just hate having them there.
My face is really dry. It hurts, not only when I smile but once I rinse it during the day it gets super dry and I can't take any wind or anything. So I think I'll have to cut back on something, I guess I can cut back on the toner. I don't need to use it every night. I know originally I had planned to cut back on the benzoyl peroxide but I don't think that's gonna work because I might just break out more and I don't want to risk it so I'll cut the toner to every other day instead of every day.
I took the mask out of my facial. So now it's just steaming and scrubbing. I think once I steam I feel better. I feel like my pores are happy and willing to greet whatever is coming next with open arms. weird... i know
I also have another problem now. I have a million little white heads on my nose and chin (at least I think that's what they are). They look like every pore on my skin has a little filament growing out and screaming to the world... look at me!!!
I tried some of the biore pore strips I had left but it made no visible difference.
Strangely, my skin feels rough. It never feels rough once I use this particular toner (2% salicylic acid and some amount of glycolic acid). But it's rough which is strange.
I wish I could just wave a magic wand and get the skin I want.
