Two Weeks Down....
Posted 03 September 2013 - 04:23 PM
I've just discovered the Regime and have a few questions from fellow acne suffers!
A bit about me:
I'm a 26 y/o female from Australia.
I am using Nutrogena cleanser and moisturiser and jojoba oil and almay makeup - foundation, conclearer and powder.
I tried benzol peroxide but I wake up with a bad headache every morning I have used it at night time so I can't use it anymore.
I'm at the end of two weeks of using the new products and I have found my skin is nicer however I still have the same amount of little skin coloured bumps and three cystic pimples - two on chin and one on forehead.
Can anyone advise if this is my skin clearing up the pimples by bringing them out or if something is just not working for me?

Hello fellow Aussie!
If you have stopped using BP and all you are now using is cleanser and moisturiser then I would say that your skin isn't purging because you actually aren't using an active ingredient to treat your acne. The pimples you have are just a result of the normal state of your acne prone skin. If you aren't able to use BP then maybe try finding an alternative acne treatment.
Have you tried your doctor for treatment? You could try using epiduo and eryacne (a combination prescribed to me by my doctor) which I have found really good. The epiduo still contains BP but as you only use a very small amount (compared to the regimen) you may find that it doesn't cause you headaches.

Hello! I just thought I might add my two bobs worth on a product I find AMAZING at cleaning my face, The Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar, Antibacterial.
I use it on my skin when I have a breakout and it really helps my skin repair faster!

Yes I've tried a lot of products via doctor and derm. Epiduo also gave me headaches, duac the same. I've tried Diane 35 - worked but it gave me mirgraines. Was on Doxy for a month but gave me a dull weird headache.
Saw the derm a month ago and he recommended accutane but I'm not really keen on that with my reactions to other meds haha.
I thought I might try steaming my face every night for a couple of weeks and put some apple cider vinegar on afterwards and see if that helps at all...any thoughts on this?

What is eryacne? Haven't heard of this one!

Eryacne is a prescription topical antibiotic gel. Ask your doctor to try it, works pretty well and hopefully doesn't give you adverse reactions.
