february 2013


I just got excited and thought I'd acne.org it, after starting antibiotics (mostly orally, doxy) and not as often clindamycin, I am suprised at the difference. I tried Yaz for a month and ended up depressed and stopped using it. In between, I tried turmeric masks and they got all over and aztec masks mixed with ACV - can't say it helped but can't say it hurt. I did four glycolic peels 40% and I will do jessner peels when I can handle it  (I did a practice 1 minute 1 layer, I think it's intense and I need to work my way up). I am about to start my downtime from peels and I will be using acne stop toner (5% lactic, 10% salicylic) so maybe that'll prep me for the jenner peels a bit. I can't wait to see how things look in June. My grandma mentioned a derm, I guess I'll be looking into that and some scar treatments for the future. YAY.

    Wow massive improvement what have you been doing?

    Thanks, glad someone notices! (My family seems totally oblivious to it!)

    -Everyday I take 100 mg of doxycycline. (I have no insurance and no refills on it, so that may end up being Clyndamycin Phosphate Lotion soon.)

    - I wash my face once or twice a day with the generic version of Johnson's Head to Toe. (it is soap & dye free.) Lately it's been a organic aloe juice and tea tree cleanser,

    - I was moisturizing with olay and jojoba, but now I have emu oil.

    - Acne.Org's treatment on the stubborn spots, but I'm thinking I'll need a couple cortizone injections.

    - December - January I did a bentonite clay and ACV mask every 5 days.

    - January I did 40% Glycolic Acid Peels a week apart.

    - Microdermabrasion Crystals mixed with my mild cleanser when skin was flaky.

    - Milk of Magnesia and Monistat Chafing Gel underneath powder, blush, and bronzer.

    doxy is so dang expensive, eh? looks like you are coming along really well!
