Whatever regimen you use, including the one you posted, you have to give it at LEAST 3 months before you decide to chuck it. Also stress plays a huge factor in acne flare up for a lot of people so as much as possible, try to de-stress as often as you can for your acne, general health and general clarity. Progressive muscle relaxation exercises are quick as are breathing techniques.
Not sure what chow is like but it does help to increase fruit and veggie intake. Some people also find success with cutting back on dairy as well.
Stay safe and as much as possible, try not to focus on your acne too much - after a while, you can trick your mind into thinking it's not even there....lol
Good Luck! BTW, if you do decide to switch prescriptions, retinoids seem to work for a lot of people. I am on Atralin (tretinoin .05%) and i am 5 weeks in and it has definitely helped with my skin texture.
