The End

After 1 Year And 1 Month...

Posted by Peaches0042, 27 May 2015 · 114 views

I have been using Retin A for 1 year and 1 month. It cleared me up really nicely. Better than anything in the past ever has. However, I was never completely clear. I would still breakout and pretty consistently have 1 or 2 mild pimples. Of course, that wasn't good enough for me so I tried to add to my regimen and ended up breaking out from it. I don't rem...

Day 52

Posted by Peaches0042, 19 June 2014 · 170 views

So, it is Thursday, middle of week 8 and, as badly as I don't want to jinx myself, I have some exciting news!
I am 99% clear! It has also been exactly one week since I started taking the peppermint oil. Coincidence? I think not. I think it's doing an absolutely outstanding job at blocking excess testosterone and the formation of DHT, which is the r...

Day 49 - Beginning Of Week 8

Today starts week 8! Yay for perseverance! 
On thursday of last week, so, 4 days ago, I began taking peppermint oil to try to help my oily skin. I've read many things about people drinking spearmint and peppermint tea and how it acts as an anti-androgen and thus helps keep oil production in check. Lots of people have had success with the teas...

Day 45 - Middle Of Week 7

Posted by Peaches0042, 12 June 2014 · 162 views

I'm slowly approaching the two month mark! I'm so proud of myself for being patient and faithful to my regimen, even though I'm not yet seeing amazing results. I expect this, I know retin A can take a long time to work. The thing is, I never know when the results are going to start showing up as it's different for everyone. From what I've read, some peopl...

Day 38

Posted by Peaches0042, 05 June 2014 · 163 views

So I'm halfway through my 6th week now and my regimen is as follows:
Morning: Cleanse with Cerave Hydrating Cleanser (REALLY calms the redness in my face and keeps me from getting dry at all)
Evening: Remove makeup with Cerave Foaming Cleanser then do a double wash with the Hydrating Cleanser and my Clarisonic Mia. Wait 30 minutes then apply...

Day 32

I'm in my fifth week of treatment. Of course, I am still breaking out some. HOWEVER! My breakouts now consist only of small whiteheads, 80% not even inflamed. I have two inflamed pimples, one that is still forming on my chin and one on my forehead that should be in recovery. Even so, they are not near as big or painful or long lasting as my breakout durin...

Day 23

Posted by Peaches0042, 21 May 2014 · 170 views

I just wanted to make a quick update and say that the remaining blemishes I had on my face are healing rather quickly. My face is even less red/inflamed looking and, so far, I don't see any new pimples. 
I had a tiny whitehead on both my chin and my forehead and they basically disappeared overnight without any kind of treatment. 

Week 4

Posted by Peaches0042, 19 May 2014 · 139 views

It's hard to believe I am starting my fourth week on my regimen. Thankfully, time has flown by thus far. That's always a good thing when it comes to new acne treatments.
My current regimen is simple. In the morning I wash my face with Cerave Foaming Cleanser and apply the Cerave PM moisturizer (I wanted to love the AM moisturizer but the SPF broke...

Running The Rat Race

Posted by Peaches0042, 24 April 2014 · 217 views

Like all of you, I've run the acne rat race for several years. Like you, I have tried so many treatments it would be impossible to list them all. I have spent all my free time researching, experimenting, testing and learning about my specific type of acne. I've found things that work and I've found things that work against me. I feel I finally have enough...
