First of...I am not sure if you're a girl, but I do get random spots whenever I get my period. Or lately I noticed that I get one or two when I am stressed out. Doesn't really bother me too much now because AHA makes for a really good spot treatment.

 

But I have to mention that even in week 8 I still had acne, it was getting better but I really try not to count the blemishes I got because that would just drive me nuts.

Hello there!

 

Let me try to answer your questions the best way I can. Here we go...

 

I basically put half the recommended amount of moisturizer and the other half is AHA on the palm of my hand and then add 5-6 drops of jojoba oil. I mix that together then apply it generously on my face. I put more moisturizer on at night because I don't mind my face looking greasy when I sleep. 

 

Yes, I do that every night but every 3rd night I skip the moisturizer and jojoba oil and just put AHA all over my face. So if on Monday and Tuesday I use the moisturizer, aha and jojoba then on Wednesday I just use pure AHA.

Can I ask how long you have been on the regimen?

 

My clinique moisturizer works really well for me during the day. It does not look greasy and it absorbs really fast. I only use my cetaphil at night because it is very thick and if I use it during the day it takes a long time to absorb and it also makes my face look really greasy. With the clinique, it absorbs fasts and I like the way my liquid foundation look over it.

 

I guess finding the right moisturizer also depends on where you live. I live in a tropical country so its hot most of the time and really humid. That is why I opt for the clinique during the day. If you live in a cooler climate, I think you can use something like cetaphil or cerave.

Just wondering -is the glycolic acid gel / AHA you use a particular brand? I've heard the AHA is great for fading pigmentation and works as a spot treatment for some people so I want to try it at some point and am looking for product suggestions.

No particular brand. I just ordered this locally in my country from someone who mixes this is up. But I have heard a lot of great things from Dan's AHA and Alpha Hydrox which can be found here http://www.amazon.co...c/dp/B000052YM7

 

I'm not sure if they are all created equal but the one I use has 10% glycolic acid. Similar to Dan's and Alpha Hydrox.

Thanks for that :)

I've done some searching online today and I think I've found a brand I can try and get in my local pharmacy... it's expensive though so I'll have to wait and see if they're doing discounts soon. I'll keep in mind that alpha hydrox too :)

I would not recommend using the regimen just once a night unless you are already clear. Look into your make-up and see if it causes breakouts. And get a better moisturizer. Jojoba oil also helps.

Around when did you notice your skin start to get better?  

 

 

Did your skin get any breakouts?

 Around the 8th week on the regimen everything started to calm down. The cysts were going away, the redness wasn't so bad and overall there were no new cysts coming in anymore.

 

I still get a spot here and there. Mostly because I am a girl and hormones sometimes even get the best of the regimen. And also when I get stressed out, I get a zit or two. Nothing major, they go away pretty fast now that I am on the regimen.

During the 10 week period, did you eat very healthy and avoided all the unhealthy food?  What was your sleep schedule like?  If you slept very little and tired, did you notice you still broke out?

Nope. I tried the healthy eating thing and it did nothing for me really. So now I try to eat healthier just because its good for me but I never really avoid dairy or meat like a plague. I still eat burgers and have ice cream. My sleep schedule varies sometimes. I can sometimes get up to 10 hours some days and others I get like 4 hours only. Haven't really noticed getting acne from lack of sleep. Stress though is a big factor.
