You know when something turns out to be a bit too good to be true? Yeah, that’s the story of my life right now. Taking the Pill has really cleared my skin but in return, it’s made me the moodiest, most emotional cow ever. I’ve been a little hard to live with nowadays and I cry at the most pettiest things like an emotional song or breaking my phone. Being the oldest child, I’ve had to be as tough as nails so I’m not the emotional type so clearly the Pill’s been making me like this. I’ve stopped taking them because I just couldn’t deal with feeling agitated, emotional or depressed any longer and guess what… my acne comes back!
In my previous Acne Diaries entry, was getting tiny spots on my cheeks and chin which weren’t a big deal. They still aren’t but, I’ve been getting a few large ‘under the skin’ spots on my chin. They’re sore and they don’t look like they’re going away anytime soon. I wouldn’t want any spots but this type is the absolute worst I’d ever wish for. They take forever to go away and the paaiiiin! Not to mention that I’ve got a lot to do this week; networking, lectures, seminars and workshops and I don’t like talking to people when I’ve got a mountain on my face
To help speed up the process of it disappearing, I apply tea tree essential oil to it. Usually you should dilute the essential oil with a carrier oil such as sweet almond oil but I apply it raw onto the spot. Lavender helps too but tea tree helps me a lot better. After I apply the tea tree, I then use my prescription gel Epiduo which has helped m acne immensely. It’s almost finished so I’ll be paying my doctor a visit tomorrow about getting some more and to find a solution as to why this Pill is making me a total bitch and hopefully I’ll try another Pill to help.
How’s your acne been this week ladies? Better? Worse?
