Just to note I didn't mean to disregard your efforts by any means. My point is that whilst you experimenting with various acne treatments, make sure you don't be to harsh on your skin Tbh I applaud your mission, despite the fact that you already achieved clear skin with BP and could stop right there
Initially I didn't care much to go "all natural" about acne treatment, it's only after I've started to experience these side effects of BP when I felt like maybe I should take it slower but with less harm. Again I am not saying I won't go back to BP... but somehow it's much more challenging than I thought... and really if more gentle/natural way won't give the results I want, I can always go back to BP and just stick with it no matter what... though it would be so nice if I could avoid that
Hey No worries, I know that you didn't mean anything in poor way. I totally agree with what you're saying, and I honestly would love to review each product for 3 months, or even a month at least, but there are so many acne products I want to touch up on, I simply wouldn't have enough time to hit everything if I did this long of a study. So know that I totally appreciate what you're saying.
I'm glad you're open-minded with the idea of switching back over to bp. I just want you to get the results you want to get. Whether that means using 420nm blue light therapy, bp, tto, or any other acne treatment, I want you to get clear. And when you do get the results you want, share them with us. Because chances are, I will give your solution a shot.
I've recently went off all BP and all over the counter treatments, now only use a mild cleanser and 100% TTO on spots. I've been clear for months for the first time in my life. So I can't say I agree with your findings on 100% TTO.
I'm so glad you had a positive experience with tea tree oil, because I know a lot of people do. Maybe we need to start looking at the brand(s) of tea tree oil that we're actually using. That could be the key. And it could also be that a spot treatment for TTO is more effective than spreading it over the entire face. Although, if you get to know me, I'm a fan of treating acne before it forms, which is why I'm not a big fan of spot treatments.
Nevertheless, I applaud your results with tto. I'm glad that it's working for some people out there, even if it's not working for me. That's the funny thing about acne, there are multiple solutions that will yield the same desired results. For you, it's TTO, for me, it's Dan Kern's Regimen. For someone else, it may be something else. That is what I love about finding the solution.
