I hope he'll let me take it again, i can't cope with having to worry about my skin an
  3. Day 86 I must say life is beautiful, i am feeling really amazing at the moment, i am stress free and now i know how much my skin made me unhappy. Now it is clear and normal, i don't even really think about it anymore, apart from when i'm admiring my skin I had a little break out a week ago, and i will be starting my fourth and final month next Tuesday, can't believe how fast it's flown by !!

Its not just the redness though as i could probably forget about i
