Topics I've Started

I Need Some Hope :(

17 September 2014 - 07:20 PM

I was just getting to the point of being clear...then bam. I've had a cystic pimple on my nose for over a month now. Wasn't bohemian me too much until I got two new ones on either side of my nose last week. Tired of them just sitting on my face I went to pop them and only one of them was ready. Now the other two look awful.

I was a east relieved that I had no new acne on my face until bam. Just now I noticed not her new cystic pimple on my chin.

I'm at week 14. I was doing SO good. My complexion looks great. I was almost to the point of not wearing makeup and now I'm extremely sad. I'm scared that this will continue. And the thing is..I never used to have cystic acne.

I don't know what is going on? I did change to cetaphil cream so I'm going to change back although I hate the regimen moisturizer it looks awful with makeup over it and doesn't do anything for flaking!

What do I do now? I'm tired of hiding my face behind makeup. I want to feel pretty. I want to cry. It restrict what I eat just for my skin. Everything I do revolves around my skin. Acne has controlled my life. And I thought I finally found the fix and now I'm worried

The Moisturizer..

Does anyone else feel the regimen moisturizer makes their skin look really greasy and make all your imperfections stand out more? I feel like it also makes my face look a lot darker than my skin. Is it just me?

I was wondering if anyone thinks there is a better moisturizer out there? And even there it remains greasy forever afterwards it doesn't really get rid of thr flakes in the long run. I'm on week 9 and dryness is still pretty bad.

What Is The Correct Amount Of Bp?

20 July 2014 - 02:49 PM

It's weird I see some people say two finger lengths but I thought Dan said 1 finger length? I'm using the tube so I can't exactly measure it by 2 pumps..and even then two pumps seems like it would be more than one finger length.

I just recently got to doing one finger length and I look like a reptile :/ I started the aha 3 nights a week but it only seems to make things worse. Can I put moisturizer on after aha or will that make it less effective? Thanks

When Did The Dryness End For You?

09 July 2014 - 11:40 AM

Today is day 2 of week 4 and they dryness is worse than ever!!! My skin has been relatively clear except yesterday i got my first pimple in forever! It's a cyst on my cheek..but it's also about to be that time of the month so I'm hoping its due to that.

 

Anyways...I use mineral foundation and when I wear makeup my skin looks awful! But I don't feel comfortable not wearing it out in public yet due to all the hyper-pigmentation. But...I don't know what to do. I look like a lizard and I'm constantly flaking.

 

I use 3 pumps of the moisturizer day and night just to add extra moisture and it doesn't seem to make much of a difference. And I'm only using 3/4s length of a finger of bp right now, not even the full amount yet. I can't use the jojoba oil cause It seems to break me out.

 

I will start using the AHA next week so I'm hoping that will help me a lot, But when did the dryness go away from you? I am hoping here that it will be soon... :/


The Regimen And Diet?

05 July 2014 - 08:15 AM

For those of you that the regimen has worked for or for those are currently on and it and it seems to be working: 

 

Do you restrict your diet as well as follow the regimen?

 

Before I got on the regimen I cut out dairy, fried food, and fast food. I still got pimples but I guess it wasn't quite as bad. I long to eat some of that again..now that I'm on the regimen I'm wondering if it will really take care of my skin so that I can go back to eating what I want again.
