The Beginning

I counted last night as my official night on The Regimen...although Dan's products still haven't arrived, I want to start.  I dropped the Retin A to stay true to Dan's strategy...Here are my products right now before Dan's come:
 
Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser (psh, okay. but hey, it's non-comedogenic)
Neutrogena On The Spot Acne Treatment (BP 2.5%)
Alba Botanica Even Advanced Night Cream
 
During the day I wear Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 25.  Waiting for some jojoba oil to arrive for extra moisture too...my skin is so dry!
 
Anyway, I had a flare up last weekend from drinking/smoking I'm pretty sure...and then I overcompensated and used a TON of BP and Retin A to try and fix it.  Because that works.
 
But, I've learned my lesson!  Since dropping the Retin A my skin has calmed down a lot, and the BP is definitely clearing up my skin better this way, even though it's been one night.  AND I accidentally popped a pimple that DEFINITELY wasn't supposed to be while trying to get hair dye off of my face...oops.  Might put some tomato on it.
 
Stay classy,

P.S.  I'm only going to post pictures weekly; I feel like that shows my progress better than posting every day.
