3 weeks 4 days Finacea
4 days doxy

so far so good no initial breakout i have just a few very tiny zit that are about to heal my redmarks after my shower tonight i think are starting to get some nice fading going on i really hope they are really diminished by 4-5 weeks though. doxy has been good no bad side effects so far. also i went to the driving range today and i noticed i got a nice tan on my arms when i was facing the sun for only about 10 minutes i might even tan my face to get rid of the redmarks!!!

the best part about my update is that i still use hibiclens and recently ive been having to buy new bottles left and right. but now i got a foam pump! it uses the tiniest amount now and i dont have to waste any falling out of my hand and since hibiclens does not lather up this foam pump works so perfectly its so much easier to apply to my face now!

also i need to post my new regimen as ive made just a few changes.

New Regimen:
shower
wash face with foam pumped hibiclens Posted Image
wait 2 minutes
grab two cotton rounds and gently exfoliate my skin while cleanser is on it(only 2-3 times a week)
rinse cleanser off.
dry off body with towel, air dry face for 10 minutes
apply finacea 2x a day
doxy 2x a day with food.

I know it sucks but you cant give up now! Anytime you change your regime it takes time for your body to adjust and its going to get worse before it gets better, thats just life. You have to decide if you can deal with the the IB that comes with regime changes. My advice is to either stick with the meds and a great diet, or just stick to a great diet and a mild face wash. Either way when you change something its always a gamble on if its going to get worse at first or not.

Ive been following your blog for awhile and hope you keep updating it. I never post on this site and wanted to just reach out and say to stick with it!! I was on doxy and it didnt do much for me, but I have researched it and its helped a bunch of people so you never know man, you might be just around the corner to clear skin.

Take care

haha thanks bro i needed that! youre right we cant give up. im trying to stay positive i did change up regimen a bit i bought some sulfur soap *grandpas thylox sullfur soap* got it at GNC i was etastic because no other place in my city has any kind of sulfur soap lol tiny is my test run i did it on forehead only ill let you know how it goes. also i found out that people were seeing results in halft the time with doxy if taken on an empty stomach so i tried it out today and believe it or not i didnt get any stomach cramps at all that everyone on the reviews stated they had when taken on an empty stomach. that also got my hopes p high im going tp start taking it without food now cause im thinking the foods i was eating was probable messing up with the mecine(youre not allowed to eat anything with dairy calcium iron and all sorts of stuff wthin 2 hours of the pill) which im sure my dinners consisted of all of those for the most part. so im trying 2 things new. i figured i would work with the sulfur soap am and hibiclens pm and hopefully i can fully switch to just sulfur soap and no more hibiclens because its beginning to lack on results. and im still using finacea.

when i found the sulfur soap i thought of you immediately bro because there i sulfur in head and shoulders! mayb you could find some sulfur bar soap near you in stores and try it out man ive been wanting to try sulfur for a long time its pretty much its own category ie: BP, SA.. Sulfure(sulphure) is an acne fighting ingredient that was used first before anything. so im hoping it works look it up and see what sulfur is in your head and shoulders. i read on here someone said head and shoulders had it. because apparently ppl with dandruff use sulfure to help with that also so it makes alot of sense. anyway just somethin for you to think about man! i mainly am hoping sufure helps with my stupid clogged pores i havent found anything for that yet. any way peace out bro!

hey man thanks i really appreciate that. and im glad youve been followin the log. for the most part of this log ive been doing really good i just had a crappy day that day im still getting a few pimples but i realized its nothing like it used to be. my main problem is just the fact that my redmarks are sticking around for so long.. and i have so many so when i get just a few new pimples it makes my whole face look like crap combined with all the marks.. im mainly just mad because ive been sticking with finacea for almost 5 weeks. and everyone reported redmarks fading by like week 2... i NEVER get the HG responses from products it sucks. any way regardless of how it goes im still sticking with my regimen no matter what. maybe by weeks 6 finacea will kick in and by week 4 doxy will kick in.. im just praying that i get my skin back. it sucks literally 4 months ago i had the most smoothest tan clear skin ever. literally no one had better skin than mine. sigh ill stick with it though..

update.

still using thylox soap in the am (which has not made a difference in the 2 weeks) and hibiclens at night still using cotton pads to exfoliate which is working ery well no more dry patches of skin. still using finacea i believe im about 7 weeks into that. and i still have all of my marks. every one of them. although they are quite faded since before i started. just not gone. still using doxy been about 3 weeks and a few days. not much improvement with this. my acne had a bad flare up last week and its recovered now but i still get little tiny red spots for new acne they never have a head and they still leave redmarks.. so im stuck with even more marsk then before. but atleast they are fading a tad. although these marks have been here for alost 3months or more so i dont know if its time or the finacea fading them.. either way i need them to be gone SOONER this sucks.. plus i had an interview for a job (went well) and i might start working and id hate to meet an entire new crew with this crappy face... sigh.. atleast my favorite american idol person has moved on! hollie cavanagh! id give anything in this world to be able to work for her as her drummer! thatd be better than even being on american idol! haha have a good night all.

alright so heres a quick update.

im still doing everything as before. but for the past 2 or maybe 3 weeks ive been avoiding dairy i mean COMPLETELY any thing that has dairy in it i dont eat it at all. and my acne started clearing up quite a bit. 3 nights ago i ate dairy on accident my mom forgot to tell me the dinner had heavy cream in it.. nevertheless i broke out that night before my shower (the same type of bumps from when i ate yogurt and had my strawberry smoothie with icecream in it) so i knew absolutely 100% these type of bumps come from dairy. got my mom thinking well the hormones injected in cows are whats doing it.. not only that but every single meat market (walmart publix ect.) sells hormone injected meat! ever since i lost my job at the restuarant i started eating meat ALOT more. (restuarant was a deafood place and i ate fresh fish and shrimp every day back then) so it got us thinking mayb if i stop eating the hormone meat and dairy ill clear up! i thought it was genius and HAS to work! so were trying non hormone injected meats for 3 weeks. and no dairy as usual. we will see how it goes! im very excited! i really hope this is whats been my problem! i really really really hope i clear up soon! ive tried so many regimens for weeks and weeks so i can try this for a few weeks no problem. i will continue to use my soaps and topicals and doxy and eat fruits and veggies as well. illl let you guys know how it goes!

ps ive been experimenting in cooking! ive made ice cream dairy free brownies cookies all sorts of goodies to snack on without dairy and they are delish!

it's true. doxy sucks. I was on doxy before clindamycin and clindamycin before accutane. I took doxy without no improvements. It made my face worse and my right cheek covered with cystic acne (gross, I know). I went back to my derm and then I was on clindamycin. It worked for a short time then it didn't work. I wasted time and money when I took doxy without no improvementsPosted Image
we are here for a reason
a simple reason to be said
a simple reason to be dreamed
a simple reason to be achieved
a reason which is to be acne free

*UPDATE LOOK AT BOTTOM OF THIS POST IN RED*


Hello any one who is reading this!

You are here because you searched one of my tags

or you just ran into my log on the personal log forms lol

whatever that may be im going to enlighten you

on some information with my log.

Happy reading!



First off I am 21 male I've always had light acne since i hit puberty nothing major enough to make me think twice about omg i need to wash my face now to get rid of this pimple! *Also the majority of my acne is GENETIC.. Meaning my father had terrible acne as a teen and so did my older brother. ok fast forward to now (21yo) winter, started around september 2011 (skipping everything inbetween that you dont want to read) this is when my acne became crazy! taking over both my cheeks from ear to nose and a few on my chin. ive tried so many cleansers its insane! recently tried going on a strict diet for 2 month and didnt see much change mainly because i think my acne is very much genetic and hormone not so much diet. Our ACID MANTLE plays a HUGE role in killing bacteria on our face and we do not realize that we are stripping and damaging it everyday when cleansing it unless your soap has a PH of around 5.5. Most soaps are atleast 8+ making them to alkaline for our acid mantle. The skin on the face has a PH of 4-6.5 water being 7 is a neutral state being non acid nor alkaline. This is why i have chosen this regimen. I plan on restoring my acid mantle while keeping a healthy diet to eliminate acne FOR GOOD!!ANY WAYS heres my regimen that i will stick with for ATLEAST a FULL month if not more.


Morning:
Wash only with luke warm water.
no toner/moisturizer
Afternoon:
apply "zinc" face sunscreen only on redmarks and tan for 2 hours/day
when done rinse off sunscreen with water only this also helps me get fresh air!
Night:
Wash only with luke warm water.
no toner/moisturizer
Apply 100% pure organic honey on redmarks leave over night.
Supplements:
50mg Zinc
1,000iu D3
MultiVite
GNC Maximum Greens
*EDIT: taking cinnamon cassia capsules .5g after every meal for insulin sensativity!
FOODS:
pretty much keeping a paleo diet
Avoiding any junk food and sugars
Eat Tons of fruit and Veges.

THATS IT.
I started this No Soap regimen on my forehead only 8 days ago and the rest of my face 4 days ago.
My forehead is completely clear and it feel so smooth! no bumps at all!
Im willing to help any one who has any questions at all so ask away!





So starting from;

DAY 4

3 imflammed pimples that are in the healing process. Alot of redmarks on cheeks from previous blemishes, and clear smooth forehead.

Hope you guys enjoy my log and brings you any help!


*UPDATE*
Okay im officially updating this LOG... i completely quit on this regimen on DAY 12. Ill let you know why. my skin starting from day one was getting extremely oily in my t zone every day when i was rinse my face with water i would have to use soap on my hands like 2 o 3 times just to get all the oil on my hands while i was rinsing so that way i wouldnt spread more dirty oil on my other areas. Also by day 6 or 7 maybe my face was beginning to get clogged pores like a MOTHER.. EVERYWHERE. they werent noticable by sight but when i would rinse my face with water i could literally feel that every piece of skin on my face had a clogged pore it was disgusting i also had dead skin all over my chin also wasnt too visible unless you got really close to me. Until day 12 i thought that i was just purging and that all the bumps would just fall off on their own when my dead skin started to fall off. well i didnt keep up with the regimen to find out because what if all those clogged pores didnt fall off and they all turned into red inflammed pimples.. my entire face would have been covered. so on day 12 at night i began washing my face again. it felt so good to get all that gunk off my face. then day 13 came and my face looked quite inflammed and irritated i figured that this would happen seems how my face got used to no soap for the last 11 days.

SO NOW
heres hope to my new regimen that i will continue to log on this log because i simply just dont feel like starting over. and if any one decides to try water only and it doesnt work they will know they can use the cleansers im using right after water only and be ok.

NEW REGIMEN:
  • Morning: Wash with hibiclens in the shower
  • Night: Wash with hibiclens in the shower
Thats it folks. If you dont know already hibiclens is a soap that doctors use to clean their hands before surgery on patients. The soap completely destros gram neg and gram pos bacteria. it is not supposed to be used on the face at all. although many people have success stories with using it on the face. If you use it on the face keep out of nose mouth and eyes IF you get it in eyes... NO IFS JUST DONT PERIOD. its not hard to keep your eyes closed while you wash. Also hibiclens is ph balance to 6.5 YES finally a cleanser that will not strip my acid mantle!! so this is another reason why i will keep using this cleanser because it kind of goes along with the reason why i tried water only. it will not damage the acid mantle at all. So if you are interested in Hibiclens i will be a contestant using this procedure and no other chemicals. just hibiclens only by itself to get the full effect if this soap works! Ive read that hibiclens will not help with clogged pores and dead skin. just inflammed acne. so dont expect this soap to unclogg your white heads and blackheads.
http://www.acne.org/...ens/page__st__0
heres a good thread on the org that was started a long time ago and many people say they had success if youa re interested.

Alrght guys now once youve read this you can skip to page 3 of me starting my new log on hibiclens.
Good luck to any one who tries this stuff!


Have u tried Cerave? It has a pH of 5.0 :)

I just ordered a ph balancing wash off amazon, can't wait to try it I got the wash and two bar soaps! It is important to wash off the dirt and bacteria off your face. Honestly alkaline is extremely beneficial for clear skin and weight loss because our diets contain mostly acidic foods when we are only suppose to consume 20% acidic and 80% alkaline. I'm trying to balance my ph from the inside and outside. Currently drinking baking soda water until y alkaline tablets arrive ( baking soda water isn't good long term) and I ordered ACV tablets because honestly I can't get that stuff down... I'm also going to use a ph balancing dandruff shampoo from main n tail and I bought the lowest ph conditioner because its great for moisterizing. ( see might be why some products are more alkaline for oily acne prone skin ) I'm hoping by targeting my ph levels internally and externally I can get clear skin. I think you have the right idea but not washing your face with soap will not help. It might make the surface of your skin to acidic

i started this in january. got offline for months. and now randomly logged on. i just want to tell everyone my regimen.
i use doxycycline still. just one 100 mg pill a day on empty stomach. i wash with hibiclens still and i use the baby brush method. my acne all went away after about 6-7 months of doxy. but i get the occasional bump still. my redmarks used to be extrememly bright and now they are just faint. although about 1 months ago my derm gave me a topical called ziana ( DO NOT USE THIS) i really did not want to use a topical i told him numerous of times i didnt want to. but he told me he REALLY thought this would be the trick for redmarks. as a matter of fact it mae my marks worse and actually bleached my cheeks maybe permanently. please dont use topicals people they suck. any ways im still not clear from my issues but im hoping in a few more months all the redmarks will be gone then all i will have to take care of is how to fix this white cheeks from stupid ziana... good luck everyone
