So I started the Regimen about 6 weeks ago, and nothing has really changed. I'm wondering what my next step should be. I had relatively good skin through my teens with maybe a pimple or two at a time, and then things got worse when I was 20, and now I'm 21. I'd say my acne is now moderately severe, with pimples in various stages on my forehead, my cheeks, and my chin.
In the past six months my acne has really progressed to being worse and worse.
I've thus far tried going back to the very basics of what I used when I had pretty clear skin (Neutrogena Cream Cleanser, Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer).
I've tried changing my cleanser to ones with no acne medication at all (Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel, Jack Black Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser, and Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser).
I've tried using my Neutrogena Cleanser with wiping diluted tea tree oil on my face afterwards.
And I've tried switching my moisturizer (Josie Maran Argan Oil).
All of my changes I've done in one thing at a time, and allowing at least a month between changes.
Right now I'm using Aveeno Ultra Calming Foaming Cleanser, Dan's BP, and Clinique Dramatically Different (at night), and Aveeno Positively Ageless SPF 30 (during the day).
So what to try next? My skin was not that great when I was just on the non medicated things, but it was much better than now. Should I try to go back to that? During my teens I used Clearasil BP for spot treatment, should I go back to that? Or is there something new that I should try?
