Hi guys, my name is Rachelle and I just started the Regimen tonight! I'm not going to bore you with a long, drawn out story on the history of my skin, but I'll give you the short version.
When I was in 4th-5th grade, I hit puberty, and a lot earlier than most girls. So, I was a little 4th grader with pretty bad acne. It was weird though because the only place I would get pimples was on my forehead, so my acne has definitely changed since then. I also have more mild-moderate acne now, but back then, I had severe acne. My severe, forehead acne stayed until about 7th-8th grade and I started breaking out like I do now, more random around my entire face. I've tried literally EVERYTHING for my skin, and nothing has worked but BP. I've only ever used 10%, but I have always stopped because it dries out your skin like no other, so I'm very excited about the Regimen because I'm hoping it will be much easier on my combination skin. My skin is oily on my nose and forehead, but severely dry and gets flaky around my mouth and in the corners of my nose.
So, tonight I started the Regimen with all of my products coming from this website. I plan on doing the BP at night because I wear makeup during the day because I don't want to look like a troll doll for school lol. I also plan to try to update face pictures weekly so I can track my progress with my acne.
I did my first bout of the Regimen tonight, while trying to stick to it 100% without irritating it. I really liked how well Dan's cleanser lathered up. The BP was also good because it is a gel instead of cream, so it doesn't make your face a sickly-white color. Since my skin is on the dryer side, I added some jojoba oil (5 drops) with my two pumps of moisturizer which I plan on continuing, but it's taken an extremely long time for it to dry, and I feel a bit too over-moisterized.
I'm adding pictures from tonight of my skin without makeup, and one of my skin yesterday with me wearing makeup as well.
