My Last Ever Post...

690 views

This may be my last ever post. I have shared my regimen many times and I have proven that my medications work by showing before and after pics. How long can I keep this up. I just never breakout anymore and i continue to use the same medications every day.

My regimen is as follows:

Wake up with oil dripping in the corners of my nose...yikes!! Wash face with dial antibacterial soap (killin' those P.Acnes).

Wait 20 minutes-apply a mixture of tretinoin and clindagel. Wait 3.5 hours.

Wash face again with hibiclens or cetaphil antibacterial bar soap (depends on what I have in stock).

Apply benzaclin to my entire face, let dry. Apply moisturizer, Cetaphil oil control spf30 moisturizer if going cycling, which I always do when its warm out.

Wait 4 hours. Wash face again with cetaphil oil control foaming face wash for acne prone skin. Re apply my homemade Ziana (Retin-A mixed with clindagel.) Wait 3.5 hours and wash face again with cetaphil antibacterial soap.

Apply benzaclin at bedtime and sleep with it on.

Other points: I take 4-6 500mg pills of either Keflex or Amoxil each day as I go about my business. Now for the final display of my pics.blogentry-178781-0-37617100-1371847784_t <------me today

My skin is so oily that I have to wash it every 3-4 hours. And my acne is so aggressive that I have to constantly have a medication on my face or I will get a pimple. One of the things I have learned since I had suffered with acne for over 20 yrs, I am 38 btw, is that when my skin is perfect I have to keep using all my medications or my face will revert back to a severely infected state. Within 3-4 hours, I have oil dripping from my pores, thats how oily my skin is. Which is why benzaclin is perfect for me. Dries my skin out and has the antibiotic to go with it. My regimen is for those who have SEVERE acne like I did lol.
