  1. New Acne Regimen - Vitamin B5, Saw Palmetto, Salicylic acid...

    Still staying consistent with my skin routine and I am still clear. I love it.
  2. I hope you get your shipment soon. Saw palmetto has been doing great things for my skin when I take it consistently!

    I had a tiny breakout that quickly went away last week. I have been using his regimen for a little over 5 weeks and I say that I see a 90% improvement of my skin. I hope to continue the amazing results! 
  4. Glycolic Acid 70%

    Yes, if you are not carful you will have an acid burn on your skin. If you are new to using chemical peels, I highly recommend starting at a much lower dose, like 30-40%, and increase and you see fit. There are plenty of instructions online, so I would do more in depth research when you have some free time.

    Day 29 Update: I am going to starting updating once a week since my updates seems to be quite repetitive. My skin is staying clear and I am happy. I will let you know when things change for the better or worse.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! Happy Thanksgiving!

    Day 25 Update: Skin is staying totally clear which is amazing. I am so happy with the results of my experiment for far. Before trying saw palmetto I didn't think it was possible to have clear skin without Benzoyl Peroxide or Accutane. If things stay clear for 2-3 months, I will be a firm believer. I have  the clay mask on right now and I can feel it pulling out the impurities in my skin. This mask is amazing. I use it once or week or if I neglected my skin.

    pro-vocation - thank so so much for your post. I really appreciate it! And I have actually been looking into miceller water, but I just have not been able to find anything with ingredients that are worth putting on my face. I am also moving slow to add new products to my skin care routine. Nothing I use at this time seems to be clogging my pores thank goodness.  Day 22 Update: My skin feels amazing. I am loving my skin care routine. I was using the clay mask every 2-3 days, but now use it once a week since it is pretty drying, but I can tell the improvement in my skin with each mask. I have never been into masks because I could not see how leaving something on my skin for a small amount of time could do anything, but darn was I wrong. This clay mask is amazing. Have any of you tried it before?    thereisalwayshope

    Day 20 Update: I have been acne free for the last several days. I am so happy that my skin is staying clear without the intense drying effects of benzoyl peroxide. I will do another salicylic acid peel tonight!

    Day 16 Update: Things seem to be looking good. I have a blackhead that turned into a small pimple yesterday, but it is already drying out. Otherwise, things are good. I started using organic pure organ oil as a moisturizer today and I just hope that I don't break out from it.  I forgot to take saw palmetto today. Darn. That's what I hate about taking supplements.
  10. I have also started taking saw palmetto extract (320mg BID) about two weeks ago. I have not been diagnosed with PCOS or elevated testosterone either but feel that my acne my be related to my hormones. I hope it works out for us   By the way, the Aveeno ultra calming moisturizer that you are using has comedogenic ingredients (can clog pores causing acne). Watch out for those ingredients in moisturizers!
