This week has been a terrible skin week. About three weeks ago, my chin started developing these bumps that you couldn’t see but could feel. Then some whiteheads formed and some remained stubborn bumps. Naturally, I did the worst possible thing to “fix it.” I attempted to pop all of them regardless of their readiness to enter the outside world. Instead of turning this into an incredibly long rant about acne, I’m going to show you what I’ve been working with and what I’ve been using. Brace yourself for some of these close ups.
My skin is now in the healing stage. The two left photos are pre-covering up and the two right photos show what my skin look like after using Glossier Skin Tint.
Update on 6/15/17: I’m re-reading this post and realized I never mentioned anything about the Whamisa Toner and Sunday Riley Good Genes treatment (both pictured below). The toner is perfect and the only thing that brought my dry skin back to life. The Good genes treatment at the time was much gentler than Differin. Helped soften and brighten skin. Never upgraded to the full size because it is quite pricey, and I have found more effective products since.
Lesson learned. Don’t pop or squeeze unless it’s out and about. For now, I am going to exfoliate and moisturize my skin, hopefully back to health. Fingers crossed*
Have a cozy weekend!
