Day #14 (2 Weeks!!):

Well this marks week two! Kinda stoked about that, getting closer and closer to clear skin each day. I've noticed an increase in redness the past day or so, but I've also noticed how quickly that minimal new stuff I got healed. I decided to try just a TEENY bit of AHA on that big blemish on my nose just to see what would happen (as spot treatment) and it killed it dead in its tracks! Dried up so fast, I was shocked lol. That new one that appeared in the crease of my mouth is drying quickly too, the BP just doesn't seem to want to let acne survive on my face...and I am allll for that. tongue.png A bit more dryness and that's expected, but it's nothing I can't handle. Results continue to be really awesome and I have no complaints at all!

It was hot as fuck in my area today, gonna have to put the window air conditioner back into my room soon....summer is definitely arriving!

Good vibes & support to everyone smile.png

It's so great that you are seeing awesome results in just two weeks. Looking back, I wish I really had started slow with the BP. Very happy for you.

I live in the Philippines, and it is summer over here...our usual warm weather has been amplified to scorching heat weather. My advice, keep cool! Melting of the BP of your face will do no good for your shirts or pillowcases. Hahaha.

haha very good advice! I'll take it to heart...it was even hotter here today, it's weird here in West Virginia because the weather can turn from freezing cold to blisteringly hot in an instant, and we've definitely phased into the hot stage now. That's cool that you live in the Philippines! Are the shipping costs of the Regimen products decent for you over there?

Thank ya, Faith! I'm definitely not too worried about it, gotta keep thinking about that long-term goal.

It's great! One of the best parts about living here is being 30 minutes away from some of the nicest beaches. smile.png

Shipping costs kill!! The custom charges are even worse when you have to go pick-up your package. I do the regimen on all store brought products and it managed to clear me up pretty well so it's okay I guess.

Just recently I did order two huge bottles of Dan's BP and had it shipped to a friend's US address. They are going to be coming over and bringing it for me. I should get it within the week. Pretty excited to try Dan's BP because everyone has said it was the best BP out there. If I end up loving Dan's BP then I think having it brought over by friends will be my way of saving myself from international shipping charges.

Day #17:

Sup my Regimen pals! Doing pretty well today. Skin actually seems to be doing REALLY good in terms of texture and the lack of redness, like I've seen so much improvement in my cheeks and chin, it's pretty crazy. My only main issue right now? Had a big whopper of a pimple appear in the center of my forehead...If it wasn't attached to me I would KILL IT WITH FIRE :P But that seems to be the only active I have right now. I knew something was going on there because it started as a clogged pore and then advanced overnight. I'm still feeling really good though even though I have this one major active, one active compared to a shitload of actives is a major improvement any way you look at it, haha. Here are some progress pics for you guys. Sorry that I'm shirtless in one of them lol :P I take most of my progress pics after I shower when I'm getting dressed for work.

IMG_20130521_202735_zps401d8b2e.jpg

This one is from yesterday, I was feeling great about my skin because I took this pic at just a normal distance from the mirror and honestly I don't think you can even tell that I have much of anything wrong with my skin, can barely even see my hyper-pigmentation marks so I was stoked about that.

IMG_20130523_224845_zps6222f2c4.jpg

This one is from today. Note my lack of enthused expression at seeing the big one on my forehead, haha :P

Anyways, hope you guys are doing good and I'm wishing you all well.

It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end. Here's to finding my end.

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Day #19:

A pretty uneventful day, for the most part. That new one on my chin did turn into a pimple, but for whatever reason I'm not too worried about it because breakouts are to be expected at this stage. The one on my forehead is slowly dying, and those are my only two actives at the moment. I noticed today though that I have a little bit of dry redness beneath one eye in particular...while the rest of my face is fine in terms of redness. It looks kinda like Tyson knocked me the fuck out with a right hook the night before, tbh lol. :P I try to be extremely careful in avoiding getting BP into the sensitive areas around my eyes, but maybe I'm not doing a good enough job? Is anyone else experiencing this, like some irritation below the eyes? (it's just one eye for me)

Day #20:

Some new developments today, still dealing with that pimple along my chin and it's pretty red and I seriously wish it would die, and I was discouraged to see another new pimple forming on my temple today too. So along with those two and the preexisting one in the middle of my forehead I now have three actives that are kinda big. So much for my no breaking out phase...that didn't last long. :P I'm just counting the days until I can wake up and look in the mirror and see NO new actives...and I know if I stick with it sooner or later that day will come.

And lol don't be silly Faith you're a gorgeous girl, you've got plenty of pretty features! Update on that eye issue, I guess I was just getting the BP a little too close to the bottom of the sensitive area of my eye because it's much better today, barely any redness there. I'll just have to be more careful in the future.

Take care guys and good luck to you all as you keep at it.

Thank you :)

Just started your breakout phase huh? it's tough but keep your head up, cause things can only get better from here.

I hadn't checked your log in a few days and I'm happy to see that your skin looks awesome! :) You seem to have had way less of an initial breakout than most people. I definitely was MUCH worse at this point than you are. I'm excited to see what happens for you when you add some AHA into your regimen.

+ What's your tattoo? Looks like nice work but I can only see a teeny bit of it.


Current Skin-Care Regimen (A work in progress):

Morning:

Gentle wash with DKR cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil (The lotion alone wasn't hydrating enough)

Skin 79 Korean BB Cream (excellent stuff)

Evening:

Gentle Wash with DKR Cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil

It's going great! It seems that as long as I don't bombard my system with dietary triggers, I stay 100 percent clear. :)

Day #21 (3 week mark):

Another one of those days with not a whole lot to report. Most of my active stuff is healing well. I noticed something forming beneath a bit of goatee near my bottom lip but I don't think it'll amount to much, and even if it does that little bit of beard scruff obscures it. Still a fair-sized on on my temple and the one on my chin seems to be drying up, albeit very slowly. Clear skin...get here soon please tongue.png

I have been following "The Regimen" for twenty-one days as well. It seems that my skin is in a similar state to yours, for I have a couple active pimples. I have problematic breakout area just below the left side of my mouth. I hope that "The Regimen" continues to progress well for you. I am slightly curious as to when the breakouts will halt.

AWWWW shhhhhuks :P

You're making me blush and making me happy lol.

A lot of people do yes, but I never get tires of hearing it. :)

And you are right, the slower you go the easier it is for your skin to adapt without all the symptoms of redness, dryness, and flakiess. Look at you, you are becoming a pro at this haha. Awesome to see!
