That's really good news! Sounds like it's going to be easier from now on. Will be interested in hearing about your DIY peels when you get started!
Thanks! Hopefully it'll be smooth sailing from here! I'll update when I finally get a peel. Still too nervous to actually order one atm, haha .
7 months on Diane now! I've got one spot under my left eye....frustrating because it's in the SAME SPOT and I've had a recurring zit there for the past 3 months. -_- It's just ugly because it's where I already have a red mark so every time I get a pimple there the mark just gets darker and darker. I probably get a zit there though cause I always try to cover that part up and probably put on too much concealer on that one area.
Otherwise, nothing much to report on. Just working on that PIH. I really want to get a peel but I'm just so scared

My left cheek has been breaking out a little. Nothing big, just 2-3 pimples, but they're taking FOREVER to go away. It's almost worse to get a pimple when I'm clear because I obsess over it so much and I feel like it's so noticeable because the rest of my face looks smooth and even. :'(
I've been bad and slept in my makeup for a couple nights so...........I need to kick that habit -_-

UGHH left side of my cheek is still breaking out. Nothing bad, but as soon as one gets better, I see another zit popping up somewhere else. -_- On a brighter note, my right cheek is super clear and smooth and the PIH is fading. Just wish my left cheek would get it together.
I wonder why I suddenly broke out though It's been so long

ANDDD the break out is gone now, yay!
I really can't explain what happened though. I had my period for the first time in like 3 months at the end of January, but this breakout was mid-pack...seems kind of unrelated to me going off Diane for a week. Maybe I've been eating poorly...or not getting enough sleep...or probably even stress.
Anyway! Thankfully my right cheek is still clear and the PIH is continuing to fade. AHA has made my skin feel sooo much softer and smoother. It's gotten rid of practically all my closed comedones 'cause I had a lot. I've also noticed recently that i don't have to touch up my makeup much during the day. Maybe only once halfway through it?
I'm going to give my left cheek a couple weeks for the newer marks to fade a little, and if my skin stays clear, I'm going to order some 35% glycolic acid and see how that goes!

so acne.org won't let me edit my last post so i'm gonna just redo it below -_-
So not much to update other than the fact that my skin has recovered from that random breakout and seems to be pretty calm right now. I used the Borghese mud mask about 4x this week and I think that helped lighten the marks faster and prevent new ones from popping up.
Anyway I finally decided to dig up some old photos and then upload some "now" photos.
Early April 2013 I was fairly clear but had lots of hyperpigmentation (left - right)
Late April, I developed some weird allergic reaction to BP after using the DKR for over 4 months which resulted in my skin getting super scaly, red, dry and itchy
My left cheek does have a few more scars because I think those first few months of Diane made me break out worse on my left cheek than right, compounded by my recent breakout that was all the left side. But now it's smooth and at least all the marks are a lot duller/faded. The right side of my cheek is doing well! They're still there but noticeably lighter. After some deliberation and researching I've decided to order the 40% lactic acid from makeup artists choice as my first DIY peel.
