So this is my first post so ill give some info about myself. Im male, 18 and just finished my first year of college. I never really had bad acne until this past month. Before I only had one or two pimples and some blackheads/noniflamed acne, but now my noninflamed acne is flaring up and turning into small pimples as well as big painful pimples. Most of my problems occur on near my chin, lips, back and many blackheads on my nose. I also have some clogged pores on my forehead. I went to the dermatologist today and she prescribed me acanya in the morning and ziana at night. She gave me step by step directions and my regimen will be this. Morning: Cleanse with cerave gentle facial cleanser, moisturize with cerave AM with spf, and then apply acanya. Night: Cleanse again, wait 15 minutes apply neutogena oil free moisturizer wait a few minutes then put on ziana. I think she wants me to moisturize first because the products are strong and this will help with irritation. Im dreading the IB because it seems almost everyone gets it and Im taking a summer class in two weeks and my parents want me to find a job. I cant stand when I go out with pimples on my face but I guess ill just have to man up and deal with it. Anyway Ill try to update this every couple of days or maybe every week. Feel free to comment and I will try to respond back as soon as possible.
