Angy79 - Me too.



Application Nr. 21 (Day 19)



Redness has again increased on nose and cheeks, though acne and blackheads remains stable. My skin feels hot and slightly more irritated too.

So far, this has been my worst day by a long shot. Redness has increased all over, and my skin feels very sensitive and irritated.

Sorry to hear that. I think you're doing very well, I mean, I would have given up on it by now. Do you use moisturizer? It might help with the irritation. I hope it will get better again!

Angy79 - Thank you. And no, I do not use any kind of moisturizer (hence: I haven't found the right one just yet). Other than that, I usually wear sunscreen when needed.

Application Nr. 23 (Day 21)

Postby Gabranth » Fri Mar 23, 2012 8:49 pm

A little better than yesterday, but still nothing to triumph about... Redness, acne and blackheads are all still present, and persistent as always.

Not sure if this matters at all, but over the last few days my skin has been extremely itchy (whole body, including my face of course).

The redness on my temples is almost completely gone, while the redness on my cheeks won't seem to budge (not much, but some). My skin still feels sensitive and irritated (nose especially).

I agree. It can be such a struggle, right? Especially the itching can drive me crazy sometimes.
Hang on in there man, I hope it will calm down a bit.
