Paula's Choice Bha For Body Acne Is Still What Works Best.

So in my last entry, I had stopped using the Paula's Choice BHA weightless body lotion because I went away for a week and didn't bring it with me. I broke out all over my back and had to start using PanOxyl 10% benzoyl peroxide bar soap on my back. I alternated days between using that and using a pyrithione zinc bar soap I bought on Amazon. So one day I'd...


Back Where I Started, Kind Of... On To Panoxyl Bar Soap

Well, I stopped using Paula's Choice because one day, I was in a hurry, then I became lazy, and my skin was clear, so why not? Then I went to visit relatives up north over Xmas, and my back and chest broke out like crazy. Like CRAZY.

My face had started breaking out already around October, probably from the horrific summer we had in Central Texas last...

Sorry for the long, convoluted title.

My back is still clear. I'm super happy. The marks are fading and nothing new is forming, which is helping them fade. When I wash my back and it feels like smooth, normal skin, it makes me wish it were warmer so I could wear strapless shirts again.

I have one blemish on my chest now, but I've been using the 12-hour...


Clear Again. Now Just Have Light Scarring.

So with the help of the AcneFree 12 Hour Foam and the Paula's Choice BHA lotion (plus St. Ives green tea body wash), the skin on my back and chest is completely clear. Completely. Of course, I'm breaking out on my face, but I'll take it.

I hope it lasts. I want the marks on my back to go away. I hate them. It seems like every time they start to fade, new...


It's Been A While, Sorry....

So I've been using St. Ives green tea clear skin body scrub, and it seems to work pretty well if I use it in conjunction with an AHA or a BHA cream afterward.

The thing that really seemed to get my back and chest clear, though, was AcneFree's new BPO foam - it's called something like AM treatment or whatever, and it's in a little mousse can. I really like...

Not working fast enough.

The Paula's Choice is still working, but I noticed that if I skip a day, even if I use the Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash, I start to break out again.

I was at the pool all weekend for the holiday, and I think the sunscreen, the sun and the chlorine aggravated my skin.

I recently bought St. Ives green tea scrub and cleanser for my face, and I...


Great... now my face is breaking out.

So my back and chest are almost completely clear, which is nice. I still have a lot of hyperpigmentation on my back, which I hate, but it's fading.

But now I'm breaking out all over my chin. Yes, I'm a week away from my period, but normally I only get one or two. I counted today - I have SEVEN. My skin is very fair, so they're very...


I don't normally do all caps, but YOU MUST TRY THIS IF YOU HAVE BODY ACNE.

I'm still using Paula's Choice 2% BHA weightless body lotion every day after I shower. I'm not using the Neutrogena acne body wash at the same time anymore; I use it sometimes if I know I won't have time to use the lotion.

PC is awesome. My back is completely clear, and my chest is getting close. I even use it on my face at night. It fades...


Working.

So I'm itching like crazy from all this salicylic acid, but it's working. The difference is really noticeable on my chest... the back is taking a little longer.

I wash with Neutrogena Body Clear once a day and use the Paula's Choice BHA 2% weightless body lotion once a day. That's it.

It's working!

But I'm really itchy.
