A brief introduction of myself:
From 16 untill 20 I have had severe acne. When I was 20 I have used roaccutane and it really helped. From 22 untill now (I'm 26) my skin has been in pretty much the same condition. I usually have about 1-3 pimples(small to medium whiteheads) at the time on my face, a few blackheads and about 5 red spots from departing pimples (English?) and a bit of scarring. I was quite satisfied with this condition but after 4 years I wanted to try and get a fully clear skin by using the regimen.
I have started 3 days ago and my skin looks horrible at the moment. I expected some redness/dryness and a few extra pimples(as in getting a few whiteheads), but that is not the case. I have about 50 or maybe even 100 small bumps on my cheeks. The majority of my pores looks "swollen". It doesnt look like any of the acne types that I know of, they are definately not whiteheads or blackheads. I dont know if these bumps are red or that the redness is caused by BP. I think it is the bumps that are red. I dont really notice any dryness yet, but maybe its because my skin is always kinda dry (still because of roaccutane I think). I don't think it is an allergic reaction, because I don't feel any itching at all.
About my usage of the regimen:
I have used the regimen once a day in the evening, I have used half a pump of BP and I have followed the steps strictly.
Yesterday, I have skipped the regimen (only used the moisturizer) hoping that my skin would calm down a bit, but today my skin looks even worse.
I am really forward to some advice. I am really leanin towards quiting the regimen. Mentally it's just too harsh for me seeing it getting worse after all these years.
