To Acne with no love > Week 14 (Day 100)

Posted 30 March 2015

100 days on any regimen is a major milestone!  I can't believe I've been on this journey for that long.  Anyway, here is this weeks recap.

It's the week before my period and I am breaking out but not in a way that makes me want to run and hide.  My inner left cheek is the issue and the bumps are red and somewhat inflamed but not deep in the skin at all (...

To Acne with no love > Week 12 (Day 86)

Posted 16 March 2015

So i am 4 days from the three month mark and progress has been so-so.  To be fair, the regimen, which by far has been the most effective topical for me (apart from the whole developing eczema thing), took closer to four months to start working consistently.
