Oh brother. I've been doing the Regimen religiously. It seems as though there's something missing because I'm still getting small break-outs, especially around my nose--not a typical break-out area for me.

To be fair, I have been pretty lax with my vitamin regimen, though. So for the past little while, I've been adhering to it, and the results are pretty dramatic. The spots around my nose have cleared up, and the spots clear more quickly.

In the past, I've had great results with a plain vitamin regimen, even without doing anything external to help. Of course, I wouldn't recommend the vitamin A mega-dosing that I was doing, but it worked. So I know that, for me, I can control the fate of my skin to some extent with a vitamin regimen. I'm hoping that, with a reasonable vitamin regimen, I can have more consistently clear skin.

Here's what I'm doing:
Vitamin A: 15000 IU
Vitamin C: 1000 mg
Vitamin D: 1200 IU
Omega 3, 6, 9
Multi-vitamin
Zinc: 50 mg

Skin has responded really well, it seems. No new spots.

One spot on my forehead surfaced yesterday. It was pretty minor, and should be gone--except some pinkness--tomorrow.

Got a medium-sized spot on my right jawline. It's going to take a few days to calm down, and it's not the kind that comes to a head. Other than that, things are going well, skin-wise.

Things are still going well. Had some minor, non-inflammatory spots in the past few weeks, but nothing major. Pleased overall with my skin's steadiness.

Well, I'm 38 and still on the Regimen. Although, I don't have to be nearly as religious about it to keep pretty much clear. I'll still get a spot or two every few weeks, but I could go months at a time without one nowadays. 

 

Hope y'all are doing well.
