Good morning everyone! I know it has been a long time since my last post. Actually, aside from my job hunting experience, I don't know what to post this past week. I don't feel like posting any FOTD/EOTD because my skin is acting up (again!) and I don't feel like putting on makeup for a week already. I also don't feel like doing any product reviews coz I have not tested them that much too since I stopped using all the new products I bought for 2 weeks already to isolate the cause of my breakouts. And I don't want to give you all any reviews that I'm not confident about so I decided to start testing them when I'm clear again.
I want to show everyone a picture of my face now but it is not possible as of the moment coz I don't have a digital camera with me so I decided to just describe it..I know this is gross but bear with me please since I also use my blog as a diary on my skin progress so I will know my progress..here goes..
I have a lot of cystic acne that doesn't go away and keeps on multiplying..it started 3-4 weeks ago with one huge red acne that is so painful on my right cheek and another one that had not yet erupted but you can already feel it under your skin. I had the painful one injected by my doctor..I asked her if she can inject the deep one too so that it won't breakout anymore but she couldn't feel it that time and decided not to do anything..then a few days later, that deep one became a big red bump that doesn't cause any pain or have any sign of pus formation. So I just let it be and I also don't have any extra money for another visit to my dermatologist anyway at that time. Then a few days passed by and another big red bump appeared just an inch below (near my nose) then after a couple of days another one appeared still on my right cheek..so I thought, maybe this is caused by my dirty pillowcase again since I usually sleep on my right side (this is the most comfortable position for me) and the only place on my face that have acne is my right cheek..so I tried sleeping on my left side that night..lo and behold, when I woke up, I have a new zit on my left cheek! Eversince that day, I tried my best in sleeping flat on my back and stay that way throughout the night..but it is so hard..I then tried sleeping with just my temple on my pillow last night hehe so that my cheeks won't be in contact with my pillow again..but sadly, when I woke up today, I have a new zit on my temples..waaaaaaah!!!! I really don't know what to do anymore..my topical meds don't work on cystic acne because mine are caused by deep seated bacteria that just waits for an opportunity before erupting..
I know, you all are wondering why I allowed my skin to become worst before I consulted my derma..the reason is because I'm so unfortunate..kidding aside, she is out of of the country for a convention in Germany for 1.5 months..I'm supposed to visit her for a checkup before she go but my grandparents are here in Manila and there was a typhoon that time so I have no time to go..she will be coming back on November 15 (i think)..I don't think I can wait that long so I called her clinic to ask for the schedule of her reliever but our sched don't match so I will just set an appointment this weekend for a checkup..I hope everything will get back to normal..I really am hating my skin right now and I don't want to look in the mirror any more coz all I see are my huge zits :(
LESSON I LEARNED: Keep your pillow case fresh and clean every night and try to sleep on your back so that the dirt and oils ffrom your hair and pillow won't come in contact with your precious skin..also, this can give you an instant face lift because of gravity..
Thank you so much for reading this very long post..please give me some suggestions on what else can I do to prevent breakouts..till next time :)
