Helloo :)

How do you use the AHA as a spot treatment?

 

I will look into your suggestions, thanks :)



Day 57( 2 months on the Regimen!!):

 

Sorry guys forgot to post yesterday, and yesterday made the 2 month mark on the Regimen, hoooraayyy :D

I have 2 pimples left, one on my chin and the one on my forehead.. the rest of my face is great and I popped the one under my nose cause it was multiplying lol

I'm so excited to have done 2 months already bc that means by the 3rd month I should have incredible results :)

The only thing that is really worrying me now are the red marks, or hyper pigmentation whatever it's called :P

I'm gonna try out lemon juice and maybe some other home remedies, just don't wanna use any products for those just yet

I wanna stick to just the Regimen for now and see where it leads me to.

It's getting extremely hot here, and it's unbearable, my forehead has been gettin a lot of sweat and it's nasty and sticky, ewww lol

I hope it doesn't break me out so what I'm doing is I'm wiping the sweat off as often as possible :P

 

I guess that's it for me.. I have Chinese food waiting for me in the kitchen so I will cya guys later :D

When I spot treat I dab the AHA on my red marks or on my spot before the BP. Someone on the boards also taught me that and it works much faster for me that way especially with the red marks. At night after the BP, I still do the 1/2 AHA and 1/2 moisturizer though.

Faith, congrats on the progress.  By month 3 you should definitely be more clear than broken out.  In regards to hyperpigmentaion, have you started AHA yet.  From what i read, it does wonders for red marks over time.  I started using it tonight so we'll see if it helps or hurts my skin.

 

Keep on keeping on

I really want to buy the AHA but can't yet, I'm really tight on money but I will once I get the chance. Let me know how it goes for you :)



Day 62:

Hello everyone :)

I just counted my pimples and I have 3 very persistent ones, the same ones I've had..

one on my forehead, one on my right cheek and one by my right eye, very weird lol

I only get a little bit of flakiness now, I don't know if it's because of the way I put on the moisturizer but something's working amused.gif

It's getting less hot here so no more sweating, hopefully less breakouts :P

 

Hope you guys are having a great day sideways.gif

Day 66:

Hi guyss :)

I've decided to only post on here when I see major changes in my face and today is one of those days!

It's changed for the bad unfortunately, I have 6 actives on my face, one on my forehead, 2 under my chin, 1 on my right cheek, and 2 others on my left cheek

I'm not like super bummed but it does make me wonder what I've been doing wrong, apart from eating junk food lol & I think it might be due to not doing the Regimen 12 hrs apart everyday, sometimes I do 9 then sometimes 14.. so I will be more consistent with that.

Anyways I have to go put BP on, I will update you guys when something new happens lol.

Goodnight :)

Could it be hormone related? I usually get my hormone spots the week before my period. I do find that the earlier I spot treat with AHA, the sooner it goes away, or it doesn't really even come out.

Hey!  This is really interesting!  I'm only 14 days into the Regimen so it's helpful to read about everyone's progress so far.  Gives me hope! <3  Has the quality of either of your complexions improved at all, even if you're still breaking out?

You know, now that I think about it, it might have been that. I always break out a week or so before my period as well

Yes it has definitely cleared up, and I am so happy right now!! :)

Yes, sometimes it takes people up to 6 months so don't give up darling!!

Day 92:3 Months and 1 week on Regimen!

Ok I don't know how long it's been but my face continues to do well, I still get very small breakouts but they go away after a few days. Now what I am really focused on is my scars, they're really bad and I feel like even though my face is clear those scars still make it look bad.. but I am sooo so grateful that this miracle has happened and I will keep striving for picture perfect skin lol. I'm probably gonna do chemical peels, not sure yet but I am still looking for possible solutions.

I'm also thinking about laser treatment but I'm scared and I would def like some input on this from someone who's experienced it, thanks in advance :)

I hope that you guys are doing well and I will try to post more, & let you guys know on what I plan to do :)

Talk some time in the near future lol :)

Faith, so happy for you!  It seems that you are on the right track.  Scars and marks are much easier to manage once the acne has slowed down significantly.  Keep us posted and again congrats.

Thank you darling, I agree on that. I kight just try to fade them naturally.



Day 97:

Hellooo guys :) just coming on here to say I have a pimple on my lip and it's really bugging me! lol other than that I have 2 other ones that are drying up..

I've noticed that I only remain clear when I don't eat junk food! so that's really what it is..unfortunately the regimen doesn't stop me from breaking out if I eat junk food lol.

I will def try to stop but can't guarantee anything ;)

I'm thinking about some natural home remedies for the scars..eusa_think.gif

can't wait for Halloweenn! I can't believe we're a little more than halfway through the year! things have really turned around for me :)

anyways I'll probably just log on here to check on you guys since things are still the same..

have a good one guys!

Day 105:

Hey everyone :)

I'm back here and things are still going great.. I've been using lemon juice for scars and I don't feel like it's doing much but it does make my face feel fresh lol. I'm gonna use glycolic peels, starting at 20% to see how I like it and then I might increase. I've also been using vitamin E gel, and it's working for other scars so I might use it on my face too..

I'll report back to you guys when I start using the peel, wish me luck :D

Day 148(omg!!):
I've been having some bad break outs, maybe because of the junk food I've been eating, lots of chocolate, and Cheetoswwhich I know make me break out!! I haven't used the peel yet cause it's been extremely hot this summer but I'm waiting for it to get cold sothe sun won't damage my skin.
I've been pretty depressed too.. So that might be another reason I'm breaking out, mainly boy troubles, but I'll gey through it :D
Hope you guys are havin an awesome day!! =)

Congratulations on your success with the regimen! 

 

I have been on the regimen for years and I have found out that in order to stay clear I need to avoid certain food and eat a lot of veggies. Avoid dairy (cows hormones), refined sugar and food with a high GI to avoid insulin sparks. 

 

I experienced some bad months with breakouts because of emotional stress as well. It's bad for the skin. Ex girlfriend problems ;-) 

 

Keep up the good work!
