Keep at it man! I'm a 19 year old male and one thing i have found is to stay reallly clean shaven. I didn't shave for the past few days and this morning my skin got really dry and flaky around my mouth and was stubborn even with moisturizing. I ran home and shaved my face and re-moisturized and bam, no more flakes. Other than that my skin is getting redder but I haven't been getting many whiteheads lately. Cysts still stubborn on my forehead, but I have long hair to cover that up. Day 12 for me!
Thanks, yeah I'm trying my hardest to keep my mind off the breakouts. 19? Well I just turned 20 a few weeks ago so it looks like I have someone to compare myself to yeah I definitely agree, I try to stay clean shaven all the time and think its better for my skin. My face is also getting redder (but you probably already know that) and it looks like I'm exactly 2 weeks ahead of you. Keep me updated and best of luck
