Hey guys! How has everyone been? I've been feeling pretty good! My skin is continuing to improve each day and I haven't been flaring as much. Right now, the only problem areas are my hands and feet. Other than that, my skin is just dry and sheds a lot, but that's ok! I just feel really great!
My face is oily. Yes, oily. I can't believe it!!! Before TSW, my face was always dry, no matter what kind of moisturizer I'd put on it. The only time it'd ever be oily is possibly in the summer, but very little. The skin on my face feels so normal now! I think the reason why it healed so quickly was simply because I didn't wash my face for like, two months. Not even with water. I know, it sounds gross, but I think it helped! When my face was oozing, I just couldn't stand putting anything on it, so I just completely left it alone.
Also, something else I must say is that this past week, I've been taking baths only once every three days!!! I remember when I used to take baths twice a day! Hopefully from here, I can keep reducing the amount of time I spend bathing because that's what's probably setting me back. I can spend up to five hours in the bath and I know that's not good! But whenever I am in the bath, my skin just feels so normal because I can move around so freely.
Well... Christmas and New Year's is coming up soon! I know it's going to be hard for a lot of us to enjoy it, but let's just all do our best!
This was a pretty tough year for me, but my mom keeps telling me lots of good things are waiting ahead of me next year. I do hope she's right!
