a few days late for this month’s update because i was swamped with work.
in a nutshell, my body is improving but still dealing with very low level inflammation. those sucker are mild yet takes the longest to clear. whereas on my face, it’s a lot more obvious ups and downs this 2 months.
but that shall pass too.

2 weeks before my period again. my face started getting blotchy the past few days. it doesn’t itch actively, but when i rub my face on the towel it felt a little too good. i can feel my legs and body itching a little more than usual.
feet was itching in the past few days, something i didn’t really care about but it seems to be a sign that my skin will be more sensitive this week.
sleep is still somewhat irregular, with it shifting between 11pm and 2am. good news is, i don’t wake up in the middle of the night anymore! i generally wake around 6/7, but i may feel sleepy around 10/11am in the morning.

redness and dryness is finally dying down after 5 days. it built up slowly and peaked in redness somewhere around 17/18th. looking forward to better skin next week.
sleep is coming back to me the past 2 nights, after falling asleep between 12-2am for the past few weeks, i’m slept at 8pm two nights ago, and at 11.30pm last night. i hope this stay consistent because i’m really keen on getting my sleep on track. 10-6 is my ideal time!
apart from that, i notice my abdomen being slightly irritated. it’s not blotchy, just the eczema i used to get as kids. little raised bumps on my tummy, hurts when i scratch them.
the air is bad this week, and the temperature is rising too. makes me feel really uncomfortable when i’m out. my redness is almost full blown when i overheat. oh well!
skin is a little irritated this week, but i take solace in the fact that i slept long hours. with plenty of dreams i can’t recall 🙂 well, i do enjoy remembering my awesome dreams, but that usually mean bad sleep quality. i might have to let go of that if i want quality sleep.

happy to report that my abdomen is back to being smooth! my hands has also improved over the past few weeks.
in fact that’s general improvement of my skin on my body, especially my feet and hands.
but now the redness is more obvious on my face and neck. it really feels like when the body can’t purge itself through one spot, it’ll find another. hopefully my skin will continue to improve over the months!
my chin area is more prone to peeling and redness lately. other than that the other parts are pretty calm really!
broke my face after exercising. it was hot and itchy and i just couldn’t stop scratching a little. oops!
much calmer after a few days but it’s still lurking there, i can feel it.
my face feel slightly plasticky in the morning. YUCK.
and i feel like my face look a little rounder than usual? huh????? T.T
hand and wrist is much better than 2 months ago though.
makes me feel like the body is looking for places to “detox”, when one place is getting better it’ll detox somewhere more vulnerable.
like my face.
