Hi everyone. Last year I started using the acne.org regimen because of cosmetic induced acne/acne cosmetica.
I had hundreds of blocked pores that hardly ever came to a head (except for a handful of pimples) and lots of red marks. My chin was very chapped, red and uneven. It looked a mess. I started using The Regimen and it cleared within a few months. So then I stopped using the regimen and went back to my normal habits once clear. I thought everything was great and my skin wouldn't go back there ever again. WRONG. Fast forward today and I'm sitting here with exactly the same problem.
I know what you're going to say. I fell back into old habits, never looked after my skin. It's true, I didn't but it seems to me that without The Regimen my skin is doomed. Will I have to live doing the regimen for the rest of my existence unless I want my skin to be a bumpy, red, mess?
I'm on The Regimen again and have been using it for about a week and can already see a difference. My skin is still ugly and uneven but I think with persistence I will get there. When my skin goes back to normal, a few months down the line, will I be able to switch to a regular skincare routine without my skin flaring up? How do I maintain 'good' skin after I am clear?
Will it be The Regimen forever?
