DAY 7 OF OBAGI BLUE PEEL: NEW SKIN AHOY!

DAY 7: Morning, and night

DAY 7: Morning, and night

This may be a little premature because my healing process is not complete yet but the Obagi Blue Peel may be the best thing I have ever done for my skin.

This morning I woke up with the skin on my right eye almost completely peeled off, and the left looks crusty, which is a vast improvement from what I looked like just a few days ago.

This morning, while I was staring at my new face (well, sorta) in the mirror, it occurred to me that I put on foundation when I have to look presentable not because the rest of my skin isn't good, it's mostly to conceal my dark eye circles.

And now, I actually might not need to!

I'm still not wearing any makeup at the moment, but I am slathering heavy duty sunscreen by the gallon.

I spent the afternoon hanging out with my nephew at a small waterpark and predictably, because of how much water I was in, most of the old skin came off, as you can see in the second photo.

The areas around my eyes are still pinkish - some parts have have healed to look like they're part of my skin and not like I'm recovering from some sort of flesh-eating bacterial disease but most of it is still in its healing process. It stings a little when I apply the three different creams given to me, but it's expected because it is fresh skin. The stinging goes away in less than a minute so I'm not really bothered.
