Forgot to upload this earlier:
I'm posting this because I wanted to show you guys that this is the absolute worst of my acne right now. As in, the rest of my entire face is basically clear, aside from one small healing spot on my forehead! I wouldn't say that I feel GOOD about how this looks exactly, but considering I'm clear aside from these breakouts (and one entire side of my face is clear right now! ) I would say that I am super happy with how the regimen is going. It'll be 2 weeks tomorrow since I began following the regimen exactly and I was using BP for another couple weeks before that, so I'm about a month in. I was just watching a video today of a girl's regimen logs and she ended up with completely clear, gorgeous skin after about 3-4 months and she looked a lot worse at 1 month than I do. So I'm incredibly hopeful!
The best news is that my skin seems to be adjusting to the BP and my redness and flakiness are going down a lot. I think adding good organic oils in with the lotion helped so much. Grapeseed and argan oil are simply more healing and moisturizing than the lotion alone. But I do love the soothing nature of the lotion and have found that combining the two is ideal.
I can't even explain how much the regimen is helping me, not only as far as clearing but also emotionally. It has basically stopped my obsession. I only look in the mirror a few times a day now, because I have the peace of mind that the medicine is constantly on my skin, always working to heal it. Where as before, it was a constant state of anxiety, checking how it looked, wondering if I should apply tea tree oil or whatever other natural treatment. With this, it's a set schedule. There isn't room for obsessive face washing, scrubbing or treatments. I get to focus intensely on my skin 2x per day, and the rest of the time I just get to go about my life.
If there is anyone who hasn't tried this yet, I highly recommend it!
