Week One / Day 4 - Proactiv - Full Face

Week One / Day 4

This is the beginning of my clear skin road. ( I have dry-normal skin)

I got off of birth control in August/September of 2013, for personal reasons. Before birth control, I never suffered from cystic acne, and I never had more than 4 or 5 isolated pimples at one time. While I was on birth control, I had clear, glowing skin, with the occasional breakout. When I stopped taking birthcontrol, my skin broke out like never before. I had small pimples, whiteheads, and large cystic deep acne around my mouth and chin, and along jaw line and hairline. I also suffered from hyper pigmentation of older acne marks.

I did some research and found that this was normal for up to a year after taking birth control, as our bodies are still polluted with the hormones from the pill. I tried various acne products, but nothing was strong enough. My acne never bothered me until December, when I started noticing it progressively getting worse. It was embarrassing and unbearable.

WEEK ONE / DAY 4
(I was using Proactiv until it ran out and then I switched to the Regimen because Proactiv was too harsh on my skin.)**I am NOT wearing skin makeup besides mascara**
I noticed that the redness had subsided, however, my skin was still "darkening" and "hardening". Acne was "smoothing" out, but new breakouts were still occurring. Dryness and flakiness still occurred. Acne marks were healing and being dried out. Still a lot of hyper pigmentation.
