Back again - after a long pause

Hey everyone, I'm back again after not posting for a while. It's been a caotic couple of months - with my dermathologist asking me to stop making soap for a while - I almost died! It's like asking me to stop breathing! I made my best effort not to do anything related to soap, I didn't even go near my lab so as to avoid temptation - and I did it, I managed to stay away from soap for the full month. I also didn't see any improvements on the state of my face.

So after 2 full months of antibiotics, 1 month without milk cheese or anything realted to it, 1 month of not making soap and absolutely no improvements on my face I went to another dermathologist (my ObGyn's husband who is very well know around here). He told me to get off the antibiotics and all the creams the other Dr. gave me (could've saved me $300 just going to him in the first place) and he told me that what I have is acne and since it did not respond to the pills I should just go ahead and take this one pill that will eliminate the problem forever. It's a bit pricey but in three months I should be as good as new. I really liked his approach, explaining everything and answering very directly and to the point, vs. just commanding and "come see me next month and I'll do a chemical peel" (not the best approach).

Fact is if I'd gone to him the first time around it's very likely that the same treatment would've been given to me, it's just the approach that was different.

So now I'm almost finished with my first month of treatment with this new pill and I'm already seeing some improvement - for which I'm sooooo grateful. I can eat whatever I want to and I can make soap!!

Having this new start, I decided I needed more space and changed where i used to make soaps....I moved to a more lighted and bigger space in the big "garage" we have and now it looks like I have a real lab, not some corner in the garage. I want to start making creams and liquid soap for sale, go viral. So I need the extra space.

I have already done some CP soaps, but the results have been less than great - I want to make really cool swirls but need to keep practicing. Salt soap is great, I could get the swirls I want in that, but it wont stop "crying" because of the sea salt, I can't get anything but tht one here.

So I'll just keep trying, testing, messing with the formula and see what happens.

Glad to be back on track.
xoxo
