Was seeing some improvement, but had a little break out his morning. One on each side of my chin and several on both cheeks. A couple of the cysts went away finally, and left lovely holes in their place. Very discouraged today. Just keep on keeping on.
The good thing is that I can cover most of the issues with make up when necessary. I had to be in the office yesterday and looked pretty good with full coverage. Also, because the oil is under control, I didn't have to touch up my face once! It stayed morning fresh all 10 hours, so YAY!!!
That's it for now. Just 22 days in and 1 problem solved.

Doing ok, I guess. Not currently active acne, just some drying up and today, one of my cysts just kind of popped itself open when I brushed my cheek on accident so that's totally flat. No scab or anything, just pink.
I don't think the zinc oxide did anything for me. Nothing got better any faster than usual, and I have a lot more no inflamed bumps pretty much everywhere. Just continuing with the differing, taking my spiro 200 mg at night and using the OCM. I've skipped a couple of acid peels due to holiday gatherings and then we had a funeral this weekend and I didn't want to be a peeling mess. Actually, now that I think about it, I probably wiped my cheek a lot yesterday crying and the funeral and that's why it broke open this morning...Ew,
Anyway, I don't think the zinc hurt my skin any, I just didn't have any benefits from the topical application of it, so I'm stopping that. No point for me.

A little background I have mild but persistent acne for the last two yrs- prior to that perfect skin. I tried beyaz for three months with no luck and started 50 mg of spiro and differin cream .01% a week ago. So far I'm miserable hah. Skin was clear last wk, this wk I'm insanely dry and breaking out all over.
Please say this is normal I haven't found that many great reviews regarding differin.

So, I have been a very bad girl about posting! Sorry!!
Just past the 6 week mark, and I have forgotten to take my Spiro or use the differin for the last week. I have absolutely no active pimples at all, just alot of red marks and scars. It still looks bad, but is nearly 100% coverable with make up as long as I don't cake it on, and use a good primer to help fill in the pits. Feels probably 90% smoother. I am really happy so far, looking forward to the marks fading and things continuing to improve over all.
