Well, what can I say this week? Dry skin? Check. Lips in constant need of chapstick? Check. Itchy arms? Check. Slight rash on the back of my hands? Check. Occasional stiffness in my ankle joint? Check.
As you can see, I have this super red mosquito-bite lookalike that I’ve been trying to ignore all week. Hoping it dies down before I lose control and do something to it that I’ll probably regret later.
My blackheads have been bothering me for weeks, so a few nights ago I finally took the plunge and put a pore strip on my nose. My skin wasn’t feeling or looking irritated at all so I felt like I could escape without any major repercussions. It didn’t get rid of all my blackheads, but definitely made a noticeable difference.
Later this week I have an appointment for my blood test, and next Tuesday it’s back to the dermatologist to get ready for month 3. Good times, good times.
