  1. Quitting The Regimen

    Hi. I'm going to keep this blog entry short and simple. I can safely say that I'm NEVER going to order/use the acne.org products again (except the jojoba oil I have left). It was too expensive for me (203$), it was a chore to do and for me it took like at least 1 hour out of the day, the flakiness and redness didn't disappear and most importantly, the regimen left me more uncomfortable with my skin than I was before. Instead I'm trying to have a healthier lifestyle and love my skin, there are so many other "defects" that my skin could've had and it dosen't. I don't even have a lot of acne (though it got worse now when I'm quitting the regimen). I'm happy with my skin and the acne is going to go away, even if it takes years. Bye!
  2. Change in Lifestyle!

    Hi again! This is what I've seen/heard people say can help clear acne so far: Drinking water Eating a lot of fruits/vegetables Removing dairy from diet Zinc supplements Exercise I've also seen a video about a study where people with acne had less vitamin A, D & E, than people without acne. People with severe cases of acne had even less vitamin A, D & E. If this can be applied to the general population then I can see how eating a lot of fruits and vegetables would help clear skin as at least vegetables often have a lot of vitamin A & E. I don't know any vegetables or fruits with vitamin D though. So my plan is to make some changes in my diet and lifestyle for the coming month of June to see if I get any results This is the rules I made up that I will try to follow: Drinking at least 2 litres of water everyday Eating 500 g of fruit/vegetables/berries everyday 8h sleep Taking Zinc and Copper supplements Running/walking 1 hour per day (also to get that vitamin D from the sunshine) If you have a lot of zinc in your body and a small amount of copper it can block out the copper, same thing can happen the other way around, therefore I'm gonna take both zinc and copper supplements. The zinc tablets that I'm gonna take contains 20mg zinc and the copper tablets contains 2mg copper. So the zinc-copper ratio is 10:1. You can look up more about that by searching "zinc coppper ratio" if you want. It's important to take these tablets with a meal as at least the zinc tablets can make you feel very nauseous if taken on an empty stomach (from what I've heard). I've also seen that you should take zinc in the evening, I don't know why, but that's what I'm gonna do. I'm going to take the zinc and copper tablets with the same meal. I'm not going to remove dairy from my diet. If I don't get any or not satisfying results I may do it later. And remember I'm NOT a doctor or dietician of any kind, so the things I say here can be horribly wrong but this is what I think. Bye!
  3. Hello again! It's been about 1,5 months since I started using the regimen with the acne.org products. I've done it everyday, except for 2 days in week 4. After I missed only 2 days of doing the regimen I got a LOT of small little bumps on my forehead, where I haven't had a lot of acne before, so that was a little sad. Some of the small bumps are still there now 2 weeks after, but I can tell they're going away. So this is the results I got by using the acne.org regimen for 1,5 months: (hopefully you can see the before and after pictures down below) MY REVIEW: I'm NOT gonna order the acne.org products again at least not now and probably not in the future. I bought the 16 oz sized bottles of cleanser, BP and moisturizer and the 8 oz jojoba oil and the 6 oz aha+ glycolic acid (I bought the big kit+), so I knew that it was gonna cost some money. The big kit+ cost 112,73$. That's already a lot of money, but I believed in the regimen so I bought it, then the shipping to my country cost about 42$ and then I had to pay for customs and a bill from my post service that was about 48$, so in total I spent about 203$ on the products, which to me is a LOT. The products DID help me with my acne. Not as much as I had hoped for, for that price. I was also a little shocked that just missing a just a few days of the regimen can give you such a backlash. I still have the redness and the flakeiness of the skin, though a little less than week 2-3. I did like using the jojoba oil on my lips, because it helped me and I usually have very dry lips, but then again I could probably have used coconut oil or olive oil and that would have been a lot cheaper. I haven't used tha aha+ much becuase I didn't like the way it felt but I might give it another try. The regimen didn't give me any kind of confidence boost about my skin. In week 2-3 I was a lot more self conscious about my skin because of the redness and the flakeiness. Right now I'm gonna start using less and less BP (using less and less BP the way you use more and more BP when you start the regimen) so I hopefully can quit when the bottles are empty without breaking out like crazy I'm going to adjust my diet and start taking some supplements in hope of finding a cheaper way to clear my skin than buying the acne.org products. But more about that in a another blog entry because this one is starting to get really long! See you guys later! TL:DR; The acne.org products did help clear my skin somewhat, but are way to expensive for me (the results are not worth the price), so I'm going to try other things to clear my skin, more about that in another blog entry!
