The Regimen Didn't Work For Me

2 posts in this topic

I'm 20 years old. I had the first pimple on my face when i was about 12 or 13. But it was just a couple of them here and there. When i turned 18, my acne all of the sudden came horribly. It was everywhere. I saw a lot of different doctors and tried some very expensive prescriptions and skin care products but none of them seem to work. Then I used the regimen. First week it was like everybody else, my skin was dry and flaky(btw i have super oily skin).I was kinda happy my skin wasn't that oily anymore. but it kept being like that for almost 2 months. my skin was still flaky for 2 months n my acne didn't go away AT ALL. Then my mom saw my skin and got scared and made me stop using the regimen. I wonder what could possibly go wrong so it didn't work for me??? my acne is still horribly now. Any other suggestions besides the regimen???help please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
