When Do I Stop Using Bp?

22 April 2013 - 12:01 AM

Hi :) I've been on the regimen since December 10th 2012 and it's been working wonders. I had absolutely terrible forehead acne, and I was clear after around only a month and a half of using it. My problem areas are generally my forehead, and my temples, but sometimes I do get a pimple on my chin or jawline.

 

I'm a guy, and I'm fifteen years old. For the past three months I haven't gotten any breakouts, or big pimples. The last time I got a pimple on my forehead or temple was around 2-3 months ago. I feel like I'm not getting pimples any more,  but I'm not sure if it's just how I've changed my diet and lifestyle, or if it's the benzoyl peroxide thats been helping.The annoying thing about the BP is that I feel it's making my skins texture look bad, and the flakiness & redness that comes along with it isn't fun either. My skin is 100% clear, I just have pigmentation left. I'm really questioning whether it's helping or not.

 

I was just wondering if you guys think that it would be a good idea to drop the BP, or even the regimen. It's starting to get sunny out and I know that BP + Sunlight isn't a good thing for my current pigmentation. Like I said, my skin is 100% clear and I haven't gotten any blemishes in the past two months. I just don't want to drop the regimen and start breaking out like crazy. I remember after the first month on the regimen I was still getting blemishes weekly. But soon after I started eating more healthy and drinking lots of water, it along with the regimen really helped out to clear my skin.

 

Should I drop BP, and keep the cleansing? I really want to because, the BP's side effects are really starting to feel like they're doing more bad than good. I really don't know what to do and it would be great if you more experienced people out there could help me. Thanks :)

 

                                          


Aha Good Or Bad?

05 February 2013 - 09:52 PM

I've finally concluded that using AHA will cause me to break out. I started the regimen on December 10th, 2012, and I've been clear ever since mid-january, so I'm completely happy with the regimen. The only issue is this AHA. I was just wondering if anybody else gets good results with AHA, cause from what I've read, AHA seem breaks a lot of people out. Whenever I use it I will notice that within the next few days, 1-3 pimples will appear on my forehead (my main problem area, and spot where I apply AHA) pop up from the spots I apply it to. So tell me people, do you have any tips, and what are your thoughts on AHA?
