I had a small breakout this week (you can see one in the picture!) but the blemishes are nowhere near as big or sore as they used to be and come-and-go much quicker. My face is feeling much smoother and the red pigmentation marks are slowly fading!
My skin’s continuing to improve, the hyper pigmentation marks are slowly fading and any blemishes that crop up are really small and disappear really quickly. I’ve had NO tender, cystic acne for 3 weeks now! I used to get them on my jaw line and sides of my chin and I could feel them when I spoke/moved my face. This week is the dreaded PMS week so I’m hoping I can get through it with no major breakouts as this coming week would usually be a nightmare for my skin!
Things are continuing to improve; I had a few spots appear this week (it was PMS week so I expected it!) but looking back and analysing my previous photos I noticed many of the blemishes that have come to a head this week were previously just red marks so I’m hoping these are the final few spots to break the surface, do their thing, then go away! The redness from previous spots are fading and I’m achieving a much more even tone around my jaw. The main thing I noticed this week was the spots under my are jaw clearing up; you can’t really see them from the pictures but I had constant spots and lumps under my jaw, even on week 3 when my cheeks looked calmer, there was lots of lumps hidden under my jaw. This week I noticed my jaw line felt much much smoother and I currently only have one spot!
Things are still improving every week! Last week a couple of colleagues mentioned how good my skin was looking! A cluster of tiny whiteheads popped up this week but looking back at previous photos, I think these have been lurking as a red mark for a while, they’ve just finally reached the surface.
