Hi friends! I’m a few days late on my April skin update, but I did take these pictures on the very last day of April, so technically it still counts.
As you can see my skin has improved even more over this past month. You can check out my March skin update here to compare.
My cheeks have maybe 3 pimples in total. There is still hyperpigmentation and redness present, but I feel like each of these problems has improved since my last update. Hyperpigmentation takes a really long time to resolve so I am trying to be as patient as I can. As for the redness, I am trying to be as gentle with my skin as possible in order to reduce any irritation. I’m not using any harsh cleansers or soap on my face, I moisturize morning and night, and I’m using a buttload of SPF on my face…that’s right, a buttload. Since the sun has started peaking out I have upped it to an SPF of 30 or greater every day.
My forehead is going a little cray…I think I’m experiencing a bit of a PMS/hormonal breakout because I have 4 giant pimples on my head. They are the deep, painful type. Not quite a cyst, but definitely cyst-like. I think it’s probably going to take two or more weeks for these suckers to vacate the premises…ugh! Due to the fact that my forehead is acting up I’ve added some benzoyl peroxide back into my skin care routine. I’m only using a 2.5% concentration, and I’m only putting it on my forehead. I use a small dot of the Neutrogena On-The-Spot Acne Treatment and then spread it all over my forehead. Then I put my nighttime moisturizer on.
