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 can't believe I've come this far. My skin is better than it's ever been on any other treatment I've tried. I would seriously recommend this to anyone with acne. This is the first thing I've tried that works.
A few things I've learned while on the Regimen:
1. Patience is key: You will go through hell getting your skin the way you want it to be, and you just have to hang in there.
2. Lose old habits: I had to learn how to stop touching/picking my face, and even stopped wearing makeup for a while. I'm a lot more comfortable with my naked face now.
3. How to listen to your skin: I feel so much more in touch with my skin than ever before; I can usually tell what it can handle and what it can't, and how it'll react to most products.
There's so much more, but I feel like those are some of the more important ones.
I'm also so grateful to everyone on acne.org and the support I found on this site. It's really been an amazing experience.
I plan to keep using the Regimen for the next 3-6 months or so, and then I might try to cut down on BP and see how my skin reacts. I'm also still taking Ortho Tri Cyclen-Lo, which is now a great fit for my skin. I'm also currently using AHA and moisturizer every night, and AHA on its own every other night. I also use it in the morning on my marks. I'm working hard to get a clear complexion!
Meanwhile, I ended up finding a great foundation from Cover Fx. It's way better than the Tarte one, which was too orange on my skin. I'd highly recommend it! It's very hydrating. My skin is still a bit flaky, and I was considering switching from Dan's moisturizer to Cetaphil.
Anyways, I'll be on here every once in a while. I wish all of you the best of luck! <3
