Yes. The fight continues. The yucky fight. With the yucky yucky acne.
This was me, last night, after 7 shots to my face over lunch at the dermatologist’s. So, you are absolutely right in thinking that my face looks PISSED.
That’s the general consensus of my face, my brain, my photographs, pretty much everything related to me and my skin right now. Pissed.
Why to these massive cysts keep coming back? Is it stress? (Had some). Is it medicine? (Did some googling and my sleep meds may be part of the problem). Is is dry Colorado air and lack of moisture (because, really – even with breakouts, your skin needs that moisture).
Probably all of the above.
And I know I am not alone. I can’t tell you how many emails I have received from people too shy to comment on this issue, but are silently suffering along with me. Thanks for the emails, ladies. They make me feel better about posting these hideous photos of myself. Serious.
So, I am back on antibiotics and I am also trying something new. The folks from TRIA Beauty have sent me their blue light skin clarifying system to try out. After reading the instructions last night (which, by the way – sound suspiciously like that Happy Fun Ball commercial from Saturday Night Live) – it’s clear that I can’t use the light on my really really BIG cysts. You know, the ones I have been naming with alternate boy/girl names like they do for hurricanes. But I *am* excited to see if it will kill the bacteria in my less hazardous areas, and overall make a difference in further breakouts. Cause that would rock.
