if you haven’t read dr fukaya’s book before, let me stress once more how important photographic documentation is.
as the daily improvements are so small, I honestly can’t tell a difference from yesterday’s skin. however, I can’t recall how my skin was a few months ago. what ends up happening is a perpetual belief that my skin isn’t improving. but that’s not true!
help yourself to stay on the TSW track. feedback is very important to motivate us, seeing some progress is more encouraging than anything.
take a photo, daily, or weekly as you wish. it’s best if it’s under the same lighting every time. you don’t have to review the photos if it upsets you. you can wait for a few months to start looking back, tracking your progress.
I’ve taken daily photos since my latest flare begun, but I’m going to show just two photos now.
2 months’ worth of progress condensed into a photo. I’ve unknowingly made it through the hardest time.. it’s a blessing to be able to think more positively throughout this flare, because it really helped me paddle on. I guess things are only gonna get better now 🙂
in case you’re wondering, no, my skin did not have a break for the past 3+ months. discouraging? not really, because great things take time to be built, right?
channeling more positive vibe to everyone who needs it.
