I also have a much more detailed topic in the general acne discussion page if you want to check it out. Basically I will be posting updates here of my new regimen because it has cleared up most of my acne. 

 

This is my current regimen:

2. Moisturise (Natio Calming Moisturising Day Cream Gel)

 

 

Night -

2. Moisturise with (Natio Calming Moisturising Day Cream Gel)

3. Occasionally spot treat with (Oxy 5 Vanishing Cream)

4. Take one capsule of (Fusion Medicine Liver Tonic)

 

 

Monthly -

Congratulations on clearing your skin :) the results are really impressive, glad you've shared your widsom!

 

Just a quick question, did you start using all the regimen products at the same time? I'm wondering if you could attribute your success to any product in particular?

Thank you :) i actually mentioned this in my other topic but i cant really say which product out of all the products i use has actually helped my skin the most, and im just too scared to stop one and try to see. :(

Well I guess it doesn't matter so much, if the combination is working then no point trying to mess with it!

 

Also is it safe to take so much vitamin d? Just wondering because I've started taking d3 daily and here in the UK we are advised not to exceed 1,000IU a day, is it different in Australia?

I used to take 3,000 IU in a day because my vitamin D was really low like 12 or something. I think its fine to take at least 2,000 in a day it won't be toxic because It's something that occurs naturally in our body just as long as your not taking an excessive amount per day. I take the 50,000 IU only once a month; its just one tablet. However the 50,000 IU is available only on prescription though.

Ok so today my skin is somewhat healing from the extremely minor breakout that I got because of my monthly "you know what".

So I had about 9 micro mini pimples and 1 big whitehead which dissapeared farely quickly than usual. Back before I started this regimen it would take like 2 weeks just for it to go down. It only took within a week for it to go down. Now I just also wanted to say that I am a bit unsure as to why I got a break out; it could be because I got my 'thing' or it could be because I thought I was a smart ass one night and washed my face with nizoral 1% in the shower :/ but until my next 'thing' I wont know for sure. In the meantime I wont wash my face with any other shit other than what I am already doing. 

 

Here are some pictures I took today in the morning :)

 

So this is with flash on the camera

BREAKING OUT

 

Okay so bad news is that I am breaking out! Good news is that it is nowhere close to how I used to breakout in the past with clusters of closed comedones everywhere that was so very hard to get rid of! Now I feel that my breakout is slightly normal! (best way I could put it!) 

 

I am convinced that it is not due to my regimen and I am 110% sure about that. I now know why I am breaking out and I blame it entirely upon ....... LACK OF SLEEP AND STRESS!!!!!!!!!!! for the past 2 weeks I have been stressing about my final exams for Uni and because of that I have not been sleeping well. I now go to sleep around 5am and wake up around 2pm. Even though I am getting the right amount of sleep, I am still not asleep at the right time a normal human being sleeps.! Before my stressing time I usually slept anywhere between 10pm-1am and wake up around 9am - 11am. I am certain now that my acne is caused by lack of sleep and stress.

 

I have attached pictures of my skin taken just an hour ago. Be mindful that I have a lot of redness from past acne and so it's really not as bad as you see in the pictures.

Ok so i just finished my exams today so my stress levels have only just become normal again lol! I'll post back in a few days to see whether the stress levels contributed to my breakout. Currently I have broken out with small pimples but mainly on my left cheek (as always) the right cheek seems to be normal.
