#3368852 Regimen Log Moderately Severe Acne

Posted by dqn217 on 24 July 2013 - 05:49 PM

Hello again fellow org members! So for those who follow,you know i dropped my dosage of bp down to 1 pump about a month ago and so far its going really really well! flakiness is down to very very minimal and acne is still controlled! Knock on wood! Anyway ive been experimenting even further by purposely skipping the bp all together during the night time routine and so far its also been goign really well! I still do the cleanse and mousterizing part of the regimen at night tho. 

 

Hopefully one day I can get off the bp all together! 

 

Love you all and there is a light at the end of the tunnel 

 

Laugh as long as you live, love as long as you breathe

Just for anyone who was curious i actaully did pull through and did a mirror fast, it was great! I think the less I cared the less i stressed and the less i stressed the better my acne got! It was a win win!

Thinking back to where I was when i started and where I am now makes me so happy! I am very glad i stuck to the regimen and I definatly would reccomend it! Also special thanks to abybar for keeping me motivated and for the advice here and there. It gets better acne sufferers! Keep your spirits high! Also happy early independance day errbody!

SUMMER! I got a 4.0 this semester in UNI too aww it was a small miracle i tell ya! lol. I think finals stressed me out cuz i did get a small breakout. Most of its gone already except one that I picked at and then it scabbed over and fell off now its a little pink. hopefully goes away soon! Other than that skin is doing pretty good, still have hyperpigmentation which is sloooowwly fading at least. Happy memorial day everyone happy BBQing dont burn your eyebrows off lol!

Its Been awhile! OVER 4 MONTHs in already!

Finals and school going and life problems making me go slightly insane lol but as far as acne itself doing really good! Nothing new occassioanl little one here and there but no cyst for a logn time time, knock on wood! Skin is STILL slightly flaky some days but more often than not its pretty good. Only thing left is the hyperpigmentation, which is fading bit by bit every month that passes by, im thinking another 2 months and some will have dissapeared completely! Happy others day everyone and good luck to all the college students out there on your finals! Life would be even better when schools over!

DAY 22

12 actives with approx 6 being cyst. Lets see some progress this week!!!!!!!!

I have a feeling that Im going to turn into the kid that walks around with his hood up this week lol. 

 

TMI WARNING

Something happened and idk why but it made me laugh. I went to school then went to play ball with some of my buds and went home, noticed my face felt supppppper dry and tight. Got home and of course there was a snow storm of flakes on my face (btw does anyone know if the flaking ever goes away?) Anyway Dan says dont wash again after sweating so I didnt, and plus I didnt barely sweat anyway. Anywho I was laying there by the mirror and I was looking at how the flaking sitch was and a yawn came on. It was a big yawn and then POP! Goes one of the pimples from my recent breakouts lol. It was terrifyingly gross i couldnt help but laugh Im still trying to figure out if it was a sad laugh or not haha. SPAT mirror looked like a murder scene lolzzz awww the joys of acne. Until next time folks!

 

last edit of the day (man i think i get on the org more than i get on facebook these days lol)

Anywho Think i may have been overzealous increasing to full finger length of BP last week because my face is suppppper flaky and dry. Its like I havea white beard of flakes! I think its just going to take awhile to adjust to the finger length I was ok doing 3/4th finger length Im not sure why the extra 1/4 finger is making such a dramatic difference. Anywho time to slab on some moisterizer!

Congrats on being clear!!! How's it feel? I'm just in the beginning stages and I can't wait to be where you are!! Also did you treat the marks while doing the regimen? Cuz I have a lot of marks and I really want to treat them now!


#3319966 Mirror Fasting?

Posted by dqn217 on 19 January 2013 - 04:38 PM

I have found that a root of a lot problems is the mirror. I obsess over every pimple every scar that pops up and ive come to that conclusion that mirrors are only bad news. The more I look at the mirror the more I stress, yet oddly I cant stop looking. I have also noticed if I look in the mirror im more inclined to sraatch or touch my face or pop pimples. And lastly, looking in the mirror makes me lose faith in treatments a lot faster (cause you dont see immediate progress).
Like many of you on here acne has affected me greatly in the area of self esteem/self image.
Just wondering if anyone has gone on a "mirror fast" before and how it felt?
Im going to try to do a one month fast from the mirror, if youd like to join me you can message me and we can carry each other through it! I figure it will also allow the treatment to work without me messing with it constantly, and if i dont know what i look like I think im less likely to care! Of course im realistic so ill allow myself 2 mirror visits a day, morning and night just to do the regimen.
