The regimen is effective. It can keep my skin clear. But it's a constant battle between dry/flaky skin and oily/over-moisturized skin. Life on the regimen is annoying to say the least. It takes an extra hour to get ready in the morning and at night for bed. I hate walking around like my face is wet paint; if any gets too close to my face, I freak out.
I'm going to college next year and I don't want to bring the regimen with me. I know if I stop using it, i'll break out bad. The regimen and college sound like hell together. Dorm bathrooms with a bunch of other guys while I slap goo on my face for an hour... Please, no.
So this has got me thinking, what is the end result? My acne is NOT going away on its own, in fact, I have to continuously increase the amount of BP i'm using to combat it. The regimen, while effective, cannot be used forever. What do we do, the people like me, who have been using I for 4 years now?
I'm seriously considering Accutane like never before, just to end this fiasco. What's y'alls take?
