Acne Clear In 3 Days, But Blemishes Remain?

4 posts in this topic

Hello all!

I started the regime back in november 2011, and as soon as I started my acne cleared in 3-4 days!

But since then, apart from having an orange glow thanks to the BP, my face still has red blemishes, not too bad, but theres no reason to strive for peach clear skin is there not?

The BP is keeping my skin clear but it doesnt seem to do anything about the blemnishes.

My regime:

Morning wake up, cleanse and mousterise skin (I do not apply BP in the morning, it's too much, and it makes my face orange, doesn't go down well at school.)

Night, cleans skin, apply BP and mousterise, sometimes I skip the BP and apply some of dans AHA instead, but only twice a week at the most.

I add jojoba oil to the mousteriser, 2 drops in the morning, 4-6 at night.

I'm also taking Liythromycin (must be the 4th antibiotic by now,) to also help my acne.

Any advice?


New Regimen!

Morning: 2 pumps Dan's cleanser in the shower, and "Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Hydrating Care" to moisturize, works to get me through the day without dry skin, but doesn't show, it's like there's nothing on my face, it's matt and doesn't shine.

Night: 2/3 pumps Dan's cleaner in the shower, using the cleanser to shave with a 2 blade generic razor, end segment finger's worth of Dan's BP, 2 pumps Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops generic, organic jojoba oil.

Sometimes just Dan's AHA+, or the usual application of Dan's BP with AHA+ on top if I'm feeling hardcore.

///

1 generic multivitamin, 30mg Zinc if the multivitamin doesn't contain it, 1/2 odorless garlic capsules, 2/3 EyeQ capsules (omega 3, 6, evening primrose oil,)

Have been on lots of different prescriptions, most successful was oxytetracycline.

New regimen!

Dove summer glow morning

AHA+ (acne.org) night!

Awaiting 20% salicylic acid gel in post for chin and nose.

Acne isn't returning after almost 2 years on the regimen

Looking for treatments for oily skin however, I have that really bad

Red spots will fade over time, but cleansing, bp, and moisturizer do not help those at all. Being clear will allow them to fade over time, but that's about it.

wow thankyou! I didn't actually realise being clear over time would reduce them

Yep! Blemishes and red spots are generally left behind by old acne, so if you stop new acne from forming, eventually those spots will fade as your skin naturally sheds layers and repairs itself.
