In Topic: 7 Year Regimen User - No Instructions On How To Stop The Regimen?

19 May 2015 - 01:25 PM

I've been going on almost 4 years now and I keep trying to go back to 1 time a day and occasionally I'll do a 2nd.  I end up breaking out badly eventually then I go in panic mode and religously do it twice a day for months to get clear again.  It really sucks because I look at my face and feel like my skin color/tone is just horrible.  If I get acne I don't even want to go out at all! I want to get off but I just can't live without it.  I hate having to wake up so early(3:30 or even earlier sometimes to go in to work for 5) just so I can wash, put BP on, moisturize, and then make sure i have enough time before the moisturizer dries and I don't look like an orange grease pit.  Then I am always looking at my face all day to make sure it stays moisturized otherwise I end up with bad flakes on my face sometimes.

I pretty much only have to worry about the area above, below, and the sides of my mouth, as well as my nose and the sides of my nose.  So I just use the regimen there.  If I cut to once a day those areas get  maybe 1-2 regular pimples.  The whiteheads flood in though, with dozens of small plus a few GIANT nasty looking whiteheads.

The interesting part is my neck used to be really, really bad.  I ended up being able to quit the regimen on my neck and it stays 99% clear so I always keep wanting to try and quit all together.

I'm turning 30 next month and I just want this to be over with. It makes me very depressed because I've let it ruin my life.

My face is doing pretty good but I'm really depressed today.  Every time I see or meet a nice girl and I just wish I had the ability to do something.  I just can't ever think of anything to say and always feel like I have absolutely no chance with absolutely anyone.

 

I feel like such a loser for being single for so long that it just makes it even harder.  I've just been sitting around sad all day today thinking I'm going to be alone forever.  I feel heart broken from having nobody love me in so long.

I'm doing good!  I've been working on increasing my BP on the regimen as it seems part of my face built a slight tolerance to the amount I was using.  I went too far and got dried out so I had to go back to what I was using.  After a few days I finally got rid of the extreme amount of flaking. Now that I'm increasing again my face is rapidly clearing.

 

I even started exercising again a few days ago!

I'm clearing up so I'm doing pretty good today.  I have felt pretty miserable the last few days or even weeks from my breakouts.  My mood is determined by my face.

I'm struggling with them as well.  Please keep us posted if they go away or you find something else.
