Alright! So it's been two month since I've started the regime properly.
I had immediately noticed a difference and had chronicled my progress over the first month with detailed obs once a week along side taking pictures.
*gasp* my skin had cleared up within the month! Better yet, my hormonal acne didn't sprout up. I'd still get some breakouts, but they were small and cleared up quickly.
However, I noticed that things changed during the second month (beginning of Sept-now). My skin is clearer than it's been pre-regime, but some of my acne that went away in the first month has returned, hormonal and all.
I'm a bit at a loss as to why it's returning (mildly). I stick to the regimen now especially closely, the hardening effect's subsided, there's no burning and what not...but I'm finding my skin not as clear as the first month.
I'm curious as to whether anyone's experienced this, and if you've turned to adding AHA, how's that helped/not helped.
