So my regimen for nearly 5 months was BP twice daily, coupled with a low glycemic index diet. Cleared me up 100% except for the red leftover marks. However, due to the following reasons, about a month ago I stopped it altogether:
1. I decided Dan's regimen was too much of a hassle. Sure it cleared me up but it came with the price of red and blotchy, very often flaky skin. Not a hundred times better than acne.
2. Low GI diet made me lose 10 kg, which, given my already skinny physique, was just unacceptable. I have no problem cutting out sweets and alcohol, but without breads, potatoes and rice I feel starved 24/7
Now I have decided to go on Accutane, but there's one little problem... even though I've been off the regimen for almost a month, my skin isn't nearly half as bad as it used to be prior to starting the regimen, STILL it's too far from clear for me not to be taking any measures. I do want to go on Acc now, but I feel like I might regret it later on.. what do you think I should do? Maybe wait another month until my acne gets worse and pull the trigger with accutane? Go on a lower dose of accutane? I've been thinking, what if it doesn't get worse and I have to go back to BP because there's just nothing else to do.. Looking back, I almost hate the thought of having to deal with the cons of BP again.
