I have always controlled my acne by just using BP cream whenever i break out and it has usually controlled it pretty well, however recently my face, back, shoulders, and chest have broken out terribly (compared to usual).
I have been using the regimen from this site with different products and it has been working pretty well as far as i can see on my face, shoulders, and back, but for some reason my chest looks so inflamed and red and i am a person who loves going to the beach multiple times a week and am too embarrassed to even take my shirt off in front of my girlfriend now!
This is the regimen ive been using morning and night (taking only one of each pill/day)
- Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser
- Benzac AC 2.5% BP gel
- Natures Organics sorbolene gentle moisturizer with vitamin E and aloe
- Blackmores BIO ZINC, Zinc amino acid chelate (zinc 25mg) x1 per day
- Cenovis Vitamin d3 1000IU x1 per day
For my shoulders, forehead, back, and chest i have only been applying the BP gel and not cleansing or moisturizing those areas. I am not sure if this is why my chest doesnt seem to be healing or getting any better. I was also not sure if i should be taking more of the zinc pills?
I know my chest doesnt seem to actually have ACNE but the bumps are extremely red which might not be as detailed in the image and it is embarassing, i possibly need something in my regimen to reduce redness or an increased amount of something im already using? thanks!
