Almost done day three in this forty day challenge and feeling good. My skin is already clearing. It clears pretty fast for how much damage I have caused it. However, I am getting a lot more white heads then I am used to having. I need to get better skin care products and get my prescription cream ASAP. Having less white heads to pick at would make this a lot easier. I’m sure most of them are caused from scaring though, since past acne scars always come back as big white heads for me. I just need to try to stay optimistic about this challenge because three days is really not a lot of time for a destroyed face to heal. It’s just enough time to be extremely proud that I could last this long (especially with the immense amount of stress that I have been under). I’ve been looking at pictures of me when I randomly had flawless skin, and I think I looked so beautiful then. I don’t know how I even got there. It was only a year or two ago and I was picking often at that time. I guess I had moments of stresslessness. I never get those now; I’m always under stress (which makes not picking a lot harder). I’d love to look the way I did in those pictures again. Seeing them gives me hope that I can.
