Day One:

Went to the store and bought a bunch of shit.
Maybe a little overboard...

Over the next few days I'm going to start using many of these in combination, here’s my plan:
AM
•Wash face in shower with scrubby wash (2% salicylic acid)
*Dry face after shower with CLEAN, dry washcloth
•Apply thin coat of 5% benzoyl peroxide to problem areas
•Moisturize with blend of jojoba, neem, emu, and vitamin e oil
•NO MAKEUP!
•spot apply BP during day if new spots appear

LUNCH:
•take
27mg Zinc
20000iu Vit. A
250mg Vit. C
400iu Vit. D3
30iu Vit. E
10mg Thiamin
10mg Riboflavin
20mg Niacin
10mg Vit B6
400mcg Folic Acid
15mcg Vit B12
30mcg Biotin
100mg Calcium
18mg Iron
150mcg Iodine
1mg Copper
1mg Manganese
100mg 5-HTP
1000mg Flax Seed Oil

PM
•Wash face in sink with foaming wash (2% salicylic acid)
•Dry face with another CLEAN, dry washcloth
•Apply thin coat of 2% salicylic acid to problem areas
•change to CLEAN pillowcase before bed

Then, January 2nd, I'm starting an elimination diet, to figure out if my acne is diet-related.

Here is a picture of me, before beginning anything:

I love opinions, that's why I'm here! What would you suggest instead?

You're using BP sometimes twice during the day plus SA in the morning then SA twice at night. I would drop to using each only once per day. Its going to make your pimples drier redder and harder to conceal.

I've heard that Iodine can aggravate acne in some. Just something to look out for.

Good luck!

When you're going through hell, keep going.
