Ok, first off, if you are like me 7-8 years persistent acne, the Regimen is NOT GOOD for your face. You need to attack this problem from within your body, not on the outside. You will continue to develop acne no matter what creams you paste on your face. BP dries out your face, which results in scarring from acne... don't do it if you have severe acne.
Right now I'm trying something different rather than BP, prescribed by my dermatologist.
-doxycyline (works for 80-90% of people)
-clindamycin phosphate / tretinoin paste for my face
I'm on week 3 and not seeing much improvement. If I don't get significant improvement by week 8, I'm trying something new.
You have to find what works for you... In general though, start paying attention to what foods break you out, and avoid those. For me it's mainly sugars/carbohydrates/gluten and caffeine as it is for most people... so try and eat a bland/non sugary diet with no processed foods.. I'm still working on my diet, but I'm trying to do so by eating bacon & eggs in the morning, planning on some kinda large salad for lunch, home cooked dinners, and brocolli and fruit for a snack... obviously this is a pretty novice diet, but I'm working on it.
But yea you need to attack this problem from inside your body, there's a lot of different things you can try, from diet, to antibiotics, to probiotics to essential oils.
