This is my second SERIOUS attempt at curing my acne. I say "Serious" because I actually stuck with my clear-skin regimen. In the past, I have actually gotten to a point where I didn't have any acne, but it didn't last very long due to some very stressful things that happened in my life.
My first attempt was super health-centered. I was the happiest I'd been in a very, very long time. I think that was the main cause of my clear skin. I was (and still am) a vegetarian. I was doing sweat-inducing exercising almost every day. I was using a simple cleanser, manuka honey, and tea tree oil topically. I was happy and not stressed. Life was good, and I was pretty much acne-free. If you want to read about it, go to my profile page and click on my posts.
Anyway, SERIOUS attempt number two has to be something that will maintain clear skin even if I'm not so happy. I'm still under a lot of stress (looking for jobs, personal stress, etc), so as much as I'm going to try to not freak out about things, it's slightly inevitable to be somewhat stressed. I need to focus more on topical application.
Therefore, I purchased Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid. This came with a couple samples, one of which included the Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 5% AHA.
This is my current regimen:
AM & PM:
Albolene Makeup Remover (tissue off)
Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid
Once a week:
Paula's Choice Weekly Resurfacing Treatment (makes my skin feel SO soft!)
I'll keep updating!
