I hate it. Just a week after I was with my bf to help him move into his dorm, my face turns out looking like this:
My whole face is covered in acne! Top to bottom! I even got one or two on my neck and chest. Ridiculous!
-drinking more water
-eating more fruit
-no junk food whatsoever (no chips, no sweets,etc)
-eating more veggies (ex: I ate a WHOLE PLATE of spinach!!! that's a lot!)
-I've been having around anywhere from 6 to 7 to 8 hours of sleep
-I cleaned my room and changed my pillowcase to make sure everything in my room is clean. Vacuumed and everything.
-I've been sleeping less on my side and more on my back so that my face doesn't touch anything, not even the pillows, in order to avoid bacteria spreading
-I avoid the sun as much as possible when I walk on campus.
-obviously since I walk on campus, I've been walking a lot more! therefore, I've got my exercise thing going on
seriously. I've tried whatever I could think of that's healthy and yet my skin has BARELY cleared up.....sometimes it gets worse, and then sometimes it looks slightly better, and then within a day it goes back to bad again.
This is saddening that I think that I truly do have to depend on acne pills to keep my face clear. I was hoping to be able to steer away from prescription meds to avoid the high cost AND the inconvenience of going to the doctor with all those ridiculous appts and rude doctors, and also it's best not to put pills like that in your body. Vitamin pills are okay (centrum, one a day, etc), but these are acne pills and....honestly, I don't feel comfortable or happy having to depend on pills for the rest of my life. That is sooo inconvenient and costly!
So yes, my appt is Sept.19, Friday, which is a horrifying 2 more weeks. Some of yall might think, "Oh, it's just 2 more weeks, suck it up."
uh, if you had skin as bad as mine, you wouldn't want to go outside to show your face--you'd feel pretty bad. Lately I've been looking down while I walk at school. When I had clear skin, which was just a freakin week ago!, I held my face up more often, and as of right now, I look like your stereotypical dorky shy asian person.
I can't wait for the day that my skin is finally normal and reasonable to maintain. I HATE having this severe of skin. I mean, if it was like 3 pimples or so, I'd be fine. Not that I would like to have 3 pimples, but it's just much more easier to maintain than the 20-30 that i have planted across my face at this moment! arg!
So yes, aside from work, this is the reason why I don't post my face on my blog very often because my face never looks good enough to be able to put up! acne galore man! And I have yet to find a mineral makeup foundation that will cover up my acne scars and soak up the oil so that I can at least walk outside not feeling so horrible.
On a beauty-related note, I've been looking at Buff'd Foundation (www.buffd.com) since I saw Christiana Divine use it as well as bLue (A WaterColourSky) use it, and it seems to make their face look rather lovely! I also like the fact that christiana mentioned how her skin is oily oily oily, so knowing that and her using this foundation, it must be good with keeping the oilies down...so I am waiting until my skin clears up with the pills before attempting to order some.....so since my appt is Sept.19, and I know it'll take about 2 weeks to clear up my face, then I probably won't be ordering any Buff'd Foundation until October! But that's okay, I can wait...
oh, on a non-beauty-related note, my body has be luring too many mosquitos! It's horrid. Despite how hot it is where I live, I've been wearing pants every day ever since my mosquito incident when I was wearing shorts. I even went as far as wearing my jacket OUTSIDE in our 90-95 degree weather so that those pesky little bugs won't bite me!
WHYY is this happening to me!?!?! O____O
