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 into this is starting to show such incredible results! Serious props to Dan.
Of course, I'm still breaking out, but it feels a lot more normal. I might get a pimple or two here and there, but they go away within 1-2 days or are removed completely with a gentle squeeze. I noticed I'm also getting more pimples where I used to before my acne became problematic (i.e. hairline, nostril, etc.). Could be the birth control stopping the cheek acne, but I know I owe most of this progress to the Regimen.
I also still have a ton of hyperpigmentation, which is pretty much all you'll see in these photos. I promise that it doesn't look as intensely red in reality...the AHA has actually been doing wonders on my red marks! They've lightened up a lot.
Another thing worth mentioning is that my face is still pretty dry and flaky, but the AHA and jojoba seem to be keeping it manageable...at least, I can wear makeup over it without looking like a scaly, orange creature. I expect this to even out over the next month, we'll see!
For all of those just starting the Regimen or who are losing hope, please stick with it. I haven't felt this good about my skin in ages, and you'll feel the same way too!! Woohoo!
