Week 7 update

 

Hi everyone! Just an update, the regimen is still going well. I used jojoba oil with my moisturizer last week to help deal with the flakiness and it lead to like 3-4 non-inflammatory breakouts (hence the new hyperpigmentation), so I discontinued use. I'd rather deal with dryness than new breakouts. Besides that, everything's going well. My bottle of AHA and second bottle of BP should be arriving tomorrow, so I'll mix a bit of AHA with my moisturizer at night about twice a week to help fade away some scars. Overall, I'm really happy with the progress my skin has made in comparison to the first photos I had posted… My hopes are high that my skin will be clear in 2-3 months so I can enjoy my summer without acne for the first time in a decade! :)

Just checking in, about 4 months into the regimen. pretty much all that remains are dark spots, and I rarely get pimples now

Wow!!! Such an improvement. Your skin looks great! Congrats :)

I think you should stop whatever you're doing and give the regimen a try. If you look at my thread in the regimen section, you can see my acne was much much much worse than yours and the regimen is clearing up my face slowly but surely. It's only been 5 weeks, and I haven't been this happy with my skin in a long time. I think it'll do wonders for your skin since your acne is much more mild than mine!

Week 5 update

 

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been active last week, I've been so busy with school and work, I haven't had the time to relax and log on. Anyways.. last week was the week prior to my cycle, so I broke out with ONE painful nodule on my forehead (which I, of course, picked at.. and made it scab over, as you'll see in the photo).. well hey! It's much better than last month's, when I broke out with like 3-4 painful nodules! So I'm still happy :). my cheeks and chin have been surprisingly calm *knock on wood*.. experiencing a bit more flakiness, although I'm still using the same amount of BP, one finger length morning and night. It's more of an annoyance more than anything, since my cerave moisturizer takes care of 99% of it quite easily, I just hate how long it takes to rub it in… better than having flakes though, right? I will be ordering a second bottle of BP, and will order a bottle of AHA while I'm at it so that it'll be ready to use soon :)
