Itismehmmkay's Regimen Log

04 December 2012 - 03:17 PM

Ohhkaaaaay. Here we go.


I'm going to start tonight. I actually already bought some of Dan's gel a few weeks ago, but at the time I was on a regimen of using that Proactiv mask, which I really like. I'm thinking of keeping it up for 1x a week still. Kinda like how Dan throws in glycolic acid (which my skin hates! It does wonders for exfoliating and removing marks, but my skin is just so sensitive to it and I start breaking out); that's how I'll throw in the sulfur.

Anyway. I think I'm going to try and use this 2x a day. I usually wouldn't use it during the day. Mostly b/c I'm almost always rushing out the door and don't have all that time for letting my skin dry and gentle application of the gel...then moisturizer. I'm thinking though that I can break it up in the morning and still do it.

Also, thinking of going back to liquid foundation. I usually wear Loreal powder...(which actually feels a lil wack). But at least with the liquid and some moisturizer, I won't look ashy while on the BP. Because actually that was one of the main reasons I wouldn't use it in the morning; it would make my makeup look funny.


So tonight I'll just do maybe 1/2 a pump. And in the morning I'll go ahead and do 1/2 a pump. And really. I'll probably just make sure I put some on before I leave the house and then just put on my moisturizer and makeup on at work (I already do that w/ the makeup anyway.)

Oh and I had forgot that I had a lil gallery of pics. I'll take some more tonight and keep up with my progress in the log. Here we go.

Coming Back

I've been here before but have always gone back and forth with whether I want to use BP. It does produce results. Eh. Think I'll try again. So just saying hey and here's to clear skin.

I always come back to this regimen because it works for me!  It instantly clears my blemishes.  I'm now working to clear the leftover scars and marks so I plan to maintain consistentcy by doing the following:


  • Apply in morning
    Tyically I would only apply at night because I had more time to follow the steps correctly and could apply more BP gel w/o interfering w/ the consistency of my makeup.  However, I will give myself enough time to apply gel in the morning even if it is not as much as at night.
  • Wait for face to dry b/w intervals
    In the past I have rushed through the steps and not given my face sufficient time between washing and applying BP and then again between applying BP and applying moisturizer.  There is a very obvious distinction b/w when I wait and when I don't.
  • Clean makeup brushes nightly
    My makeup doesn't break me out unless I don't wash it off nightly (it'll clog my pores) or if I use a dirty makeup brush.  Ideally, I want to wash it nightly, but technically I can go up to 3 days.
  • Change pillowcases regularly
    So I had a recent breakout and I believe it was because of dirty pillowcases.  It was due to going to sleep w/ my hair still wet from washing it in the shower and I think w/ the water on the pillowcase, there was also some oils leftover and it was very bad :/  The bumps have since cleared, but I do have scars leftover from them now...eh.  But I want to change my pillowcases 2X a week to prevent this in the future.
