It has been 2 weeks since I announced I was on project: clear skin, I said I would limit the amount of makeup I used to just 5 products which included no foundation or tinted moisturiser.
The 1st week I was eating healthily, wearing hardly any makeup and using honey.
The 2nd week I was eating healthily, wearing a moderate amount of makeup and not using honey.
The 1st week my skin was much clearer and I was actually feeling comfortable without any makeup with no new spots to report.
This week I reached out to the foundation as I had an outburst of spots on the sides of my face and I scar quite easily so I was having to cover up. I stopped using the honey as I had ran out, I'm wondering if this had anything to do with it or I got the spots because I started wearing foundation again?!
However the 2nd week was the end of my menstrual cycle, so more than likely they were hormonal or perhaps even stress related. I'm really not sure.
My problem is that once I see even the smallest spot I have to squeeze it, it's like I have some magnetic connection that I have no control over. Yesterday an underskin spot emerged just under my cheekbone which hurt SO bad. I squeezed it, but no joy, it was not squeezable. So, like an idiot I attacked it with a hot needle to burst it (I know this is wrong but, like I said I can't help it) and still no joy. So I had to put loads of salicylic acid on it to calm it down.
I'm just so fed up, I know if I relaxed and stopped picking, squeezing and attacking my spots they would be alot better. luckily for me, the honey is really helping diminish the scars. Currently I am sitting here typing this with honey slathered all over my face :)
What I need to do is choose a skincare routine and stick to it, I was enjoying using the Garnier Pro X range, but I really want to try the Luxtural range also. Or, do I just go back to Neal's Yard? Oh this is just too much!
