Nearly 2 months later and my acne is getting worse by the day. Will post update pictures as soon as I can, but it's really frustrating seeing my skin get worse.
UPDATE - Dermatologist appointment today.
Switching from Minocycline to Ceradoxil 2x day next week. Still using Aczone, Epiduo, CeraVe face wash, & St. Ives exfoliant 1x week.

It's so frustrating I know. The pool or ocean helped my skin it was flawless when I was down south. But when I come back home, my skin comes back to it's bad routine of horrible break outs !!
I think sun, salt water and chlorine really does help the skin.

Your skin has improved a ton since you first started this log! Have you ever tried manipulating your diet or switching cleansers? Cerave anything clogs me badly. Cetaphil too.

If you look at my regimen, I use Cetaphil lotion (less oily) in the mornings, and CeraVe moisturing cream at night.
I've tried going vegeterian, no dairy, and I eat a lot of vegetables and fruits throughout the week.

Vegetarian is good! Have you tried cutting out soy too? And maybe nuts?
I really like this website called cosdna. Above are the links to both the products you are using on your face and as you can see they both contain ingredients which are very likely to clog pores. If I used both of those my skin would be a mess.
