Have you ever wondered why someone liked you so much? What is so great about you? What's so special, nothing special.
Have you ever wondered why the hell someone DIDN'T like you as much? You're freaking awesome sauce.
Yeah well I just thought how weird those things are and how probably ALL of us have experienced it even though they contradict each other.
Back to acne...
I'm pretty clear right now. I've been using BP and AHA at night but to be honest I have NOT been using BP during the day every day. I try to incorporate it in the day when I can but I usually never have the time. I was religious with the regimen when I first started, of course aren't we all but then I kept slacking off. I slacked off even more when I experienced what wonders AHA did for my acne and skin.
I haven't been taking Zinc whatsoever lately. I don't know if I should keep doing that since I really don't see a difference in when I take it and don't take it. My acne or marks are pretty consistent with or without it. I know Dan takes it daily and that in itself is more than enough of a reason to continue to take it... but- what can I say? I'm a bum and too lazy to remember or want to remember to take it every day, especially when I personally don't see a difference.
So one thing I learned that I had no idea about with the regimen is that you get a IB.
I know this because when I started I had nowhere near as much as pimples when I was idk a couple weeks into it. I still have marks from the pimples I had at the time mid through the beginning of the regimen. Then at the time that my acne was getting worse I had no idea it had got worse until I started to clear up and am now clear.
Thankfully, gladly and bless fully that ish is over.
AND I had no idea how useless that jojoba oil was going to be either. It did not help at the time with flakes WHATSOEVER or with my skin drying out, my skin still was cracking mid day with that mixed in my foundation and face lotion. My skin was cracked but looked oily at the same time because of it. It did not help the situation. And I didn't know how useless it was until I ordered the AHA.
Now that jojoba oil is just sitting in my bathroom, doing absolutely nothing. Lol.
Now, with even being stressed and having awful sleep schedules my skin is still doing phenomenally well and NOT breaking out even with all the bad. I honestly believe it's the AHA. I don't know if it's all AHA... I did read on here somewhere about somebody JUST using AHA and ditching the BP, and they stayed clear without all the hassle of BP. I would like to try it... But am a total wuss.
All of my marks are still visible from past acne.
I'm still using BB cream under my foundation.
I haven't been drinking a lot of water... like at all. I know. Sorry.
And that's all for now...
