Three days before a big event and I don’t like my skin. It’s not the worse and it’s not the best. It’s not good and it had been clear. It’s a combo result of break outs the past few weeks I will blame on the humidity and picking (resisting and picking- a solid mix that’s left me with enough red spots to make me think of only) so I can’t touch my face for the next three days starting now. Helpful to share my intentions somewhere even if it’s just me checking in on myself here. My plan is to go to the beach this morning (happy place) and get a shower and do makeup and get to work after. Come home wash face and put bandaids on. Wake up and put makeup on before work and come home and repeat. Hopefully waking up Friday I will be in better shape than I am now. Friday I have one more night to wear bandaids and mostly one more night to let sleeping so it’s magic while my body repairs itself. I think what’s been the hardest part for me is this and last week I got a cystic spot twice in the same location just slightly lower this time that seemed to start as a very small bump and when I messed with it it turned into a deep and very sore spot that will not pop. These I have to say I don’t get often and these, as with all of us, are my hardest test of strength. They just feel like they are ready at all times to be “dealt” with. I can leave other spots alone now pretty well. Favorite products remain the same: cera ve foaming face wash, simple rich moisturizer, tea tree for antibacterial after picking, trentinoin cream all over every night for speedy cell turnover, and hydrocolloids because they are amazing for speedy healing and a physical barrier whenever I can get away with wearing them...mostly at night as soon as I get in the door the better until I wake up in the morning and am ready to go out again! So I plan to comment again this evening on how I do today and tomorrow and Friday as well! Let’s go!
