So happy with my skin right now! The only face makeup I’m wearing is power just to mattify my moisturizer. The bump between my eyebrows it’s still bothering me, but I’m trying to stay positive and focus on how good everything else is doing.
Damn you Minnesota winters, you’re drying my skin out so bad. I DONT WANT TO BE CRUSTY.
I decided that I wanted to start taking Biotin supplements so I went to the store and bought some and when I got home I read some reviews and so many people said it gave them the worst breakout of their life so now shit I’m terrified
I just spent over an hour organizing my blog and adding new links like answered questions and my favorite acne blogs. So if you’re at all interested, go ahead and check it out :)
I don’t know if any of you are familiar with facial zoning or face maps, but it’s the idea that the location of your breakouts reflects internal problems that could be leading to these breakouts. It’s certainly not an exact science, and I’ve always been skeptical about it, but I also find it intriguing. I think there is actually some truth in it. For example, if you break out in between your eyebrows, it’s linked to your dairy intake and your liver. When I went off being vegan, I was constantly breaking out HORRIBLY between my eyebrows for the first 3 months back on a regular diet. It’s likely that my body wasn’t used to dairy, so eating it again made it freak out until it readjusted. I’m currently breaking out between my eyebrows again, but this time I think it’s likely correlated to my liver. I’ve been drinking a lot lately (bad, I know), and my skin is showing it.
So when it comes to treating your skin, facial zoning might be something else you can look into. It’s not perfect and it’s not always right, but it’s definitely still something to think about.
Found the perfect Charlie Brown Christmas tree :) I’d actually really like this picture if the huge zit between my eyebrows wasn’t so noticeable. I was hoping it would clear up before I had to go back to school tomorrow, but alas it was not to be.
