Hey guys,
 
So, this is it!  I've reached the end of my Regimen journey.  It's been quite the adventure!
 
After the full 3 suggested months, I'm finally clear.  I still have hyperpigmentation issues, but that will also go away.  :)  After everything I've been through, I don't mind some temporary red marks.
 
I just...

Well, I'm still in the home stretch, and it's so exciting!  I just have a few things to report:
 
I slept in my makeup twice this week (oops)...The first time, I broke out on my problem cheek, but it was very minor and is practically gone now.  :)  The second time, I didn't break out at all, minus a couple of clogged pores from putting...

I'm 2/3 of the way done with the Regimen!  I can't believe how much time has gone by, and I also can't believe how much better my face is.  My acne seems to be 90% under control, which is so exciting for me.  I really never thought this would happen, and it's such an amazing feeling!  I can't believe all of the stress and time I put in...

Well, I'm about half-way through my 7th week on the Regimen, and I'm quite pleased!  The left side of my face is [almost] completely clear now, and the right side is well on its way.  It has 1-2 tiny whiteheads currently.  There's a papule on the side of my nose, but it's been shrinking.  http://www.acne.org/...ublic/style_...

Alright, I'm still hanging in here and doing my best to keep everything under control. Last night, I noticed a few of the last buried pimples were surfacing, which I didn't really have a strong opinion on.  I was glad they were coming out, but if they got larger, I would pop them in the morning.  Well, after applying 1/2 AHA and 1/2 moistur...

Well, after some much needed moisturizer and jojoba, my skin is back on its way.  The swelling is completely gone, and the redness has gone down significantly.  Also, the popped areas are still healing.  They're not completely gone, but they're looking a lot less angry! I did have to exfoliate with jojoba oil this morning, though....

MY MOISTURIZER CAME!  HUZZAH!  I'M SAVED!  My face feels so much better, and there's no more flakiness.  Thank goodness.  :) That's the only good part.  Before you look at these photos, I'm just going to point out that indeed, my face is pretty damaged right now.  Yesterday I had SO MANY whiteheads, and I caved and...

Yeah, I clumped my weekend together again.  I said I wouldn't do that, but clearly I can't live up to that promise. Well, my skin's been clearing pretty nicely.  Most of the bumps are going away, or are smaller whiteheads.  And that's great!  I'm happy about that. The main issue now is that I STILL don't have my acne.org mois...

I'm worried about my face.   I'm pretty sure it's irrational, but it's scary to see my acne change almost half-way through the Regimen.  It doesn't look as unsightly now, but my skin is SO flaky and red, and these bumps under my face have a pretty smooth, shiny texture, and it's hard to see the pores around them...might be cystic?  I have n...


Day 37: Battle For Smoothness

The battles are waging on.  I'm going to use the last of my moisturizer today, and then get a replacement one (Eucerin, most likely), because I'm pretty sure the new one won't be here until next week, and I can't survive that long.  Always good to have a backup moisturizer, anyway! I've been speculating the state of my skin lately, and I gu...
