Two Weeks Since Reducing Bp

I went one week with only using BP at night and this past week I alternated between using it twice a day and once a day. I found after reducing BP for a while the excessive flakiness and dryness I was experiencing subsided and my skin soaked up the moisterizer immediately after drying from cleansing. Over time though my skin was not as ready to soak in moisterizer, as the dryness caused from BP usage over the years subsided. Now I feel as though its unnecessary to skip BP usage in the morning

One Week Follow Up On Reducing Bp

So for this week I only used BP at night. I was consistent except for Friday night where I skipped moisterizing, but that's not going to effect my results that badly. The first morning that I left the treatment out took some mental effort because the regimen has become SUCH a habit for me, but I absolutely loved it. It was like drinking water for the first time after a long day where you just couldn't find any. I couldn't fathom how I was about to put BP on such a dry canvas. Skipping this s

Flakiness And Reducing Bp

I've decided that I'm going to try reducing the BP I use to once a day at night time. I will still cleanse and moisterize in the morning like usual but I am tired of having flaky skin. It's the most persistent around my hairline but sometimes effects other areas of my face as well. It's been four years and I haven't really figured it out. I exfoliate now and then which isn't good for maintaining clear skin but I don't know what else to do. Besides, I'm 19 now and hopefully my skin has calmed

Two Years And Almost Eight Months On The Regimen!

Where My Skin is at Now After all the time I've been using the Regimen, I think I've come to know it pretty well. My skin is clear and I can almost predict my breakouts based on how well I've been following the rules Dan gives on this site. In fact, its not only clear, I dare say its healthy and beautiful. Dark spots from my previously moderate-severe acne-d face have long since faded. Whenever I breakout now the pimples are small and barely noticeable. I actually have a papule underneath

Finally healing after dry socket! but I skipped using the Regimen for half a week :O

Well its true. I, the ever so loyal user of the Regimen for about a year and a half, anti-dutifully skipped using the regimen after I got my wisdom teeth out. Good news is I probably saved some product because my face was so ridiculously swollen the first few days I would have had to use more of it than usual. MY TIP to any of you pre-teens or teens who haven't gotten their wisdom teeth out! Get them out EARLY. BEFORE they're an issue. During a long vacation so its not a stressor preferabl

Oh dear, how long has it been?

I'M A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL. Well its summer but technically I'm one since the old seniors graduated. Anyways, lets see, I started the regimen sometime in January 2010...the 13th I think, I remember being amused by it because I didn't notice I had started on such a controversial number. Well if that is the case I've been on the regimen for a year and four months and 17 days. Crazy I know! So for all you guys and gals out there thinking about trying the regimen, remember 3 months WILL pass..

I'm BAAAACK!!!!

Hello internet and company. Well I've been on the regimen now for...a long time. Junior year this year is absolutely crazy, so I haven't really had time or energy to come on and make a post. Thankfully its now winter break (yes I still have HW to do that I can't finish by the end, GAAH) so I do have the energy to write in this blog yet again! So I visited my family in Texas recently. After being on the regimen for ALMOST a year, missing two applications (one on the flight there, a

Week Twenty-Seven--Pool and sunburn issues

So I decided to go to a friend's meet today. (lets call her..Eliza) Eliza and her mom were very accommodating! Plenty of food (cheeze its! yum!) and exciting events. I loved the atmosphere of the crowd! how people would wait until their teammate's head arose from the current of water their own limbs had produced to shout "GO GO GO GO!", their voices carrying out past the coaches' tents into the swim center's parking lot. And what's even more exciting, my friend's extra suit fit me. I was

Week 22, Day 148

Wow, haven't been on for a while. It had been taxing writing blog entries because my skin doesn't change much in just a day anymore. I've kind of gotten used to it. My dark spots are definitely disappearing though. Something I've noticed, I get these raised colorless bumps now and then on my face that don't seem to go away. I get them all over my shoulders too and its annoying. I might do some research to see what they are. They're usually the same size or bigger than other acne. A

'ello everybody! So te letter next to j doesn't work now. Okay, ere's some interesting facts about my recent failures wit te Regimen. I went to Disneyland on a band trip (woop! We played a concert tere) And realized I ad left my treatment portion of te regimen at ome. I felt sooo bad once I found tat out. So I didn't use benzoyl peroxide for..four days. I still used cleanser and moisturizer toug. I do ave a lot of small red irritated acne on my nose and probably more to come. Als

Week Seventeen: Day 114

Sorry I've been so lazy! But I'm here to report I did reorder the regimen and my skin is doing splendid. Unfortunately I did get one big zit a bit under my eye again, but after one night with AHA+ the size was reduced. I'm actually glad I got it because I was able to see how much better my skin was! To think that acne used to be ALL OVER and they've been reduced to little black spots is pretty incredible. http://i746.photobucket.com/albums/xx109/T.../0507101537.jpg Here's a progress pic

Week Sixteen: Day 110

Oops, so I kinda skipped a week. Yep. I don't feel the need for a progress picture. I get real flaky nowadays despite the fact my BP amount hasn't changed. No miraculous clearing really, still stubborn dark spots and occasional new zits, not to mention my vast amount of body acne. I'm going to try and keep the regimen going though, its worth it to prevent future scarring without resorting to the recently recalled accutane (I lol'd when I heard that, almost went there too!) Well I don't kne

Week Fifteen: Day Ninety-Nine

Wow. Almost 100 days. Well my skin's doing well. There are little bumps but I don't mind. Getting to itch my face is worth it in my point of view ^^;; So, . . . my day didn't go so well. My self confidence is awesome with everything except other people. I get shy and care so much about making good impressions that I come off as conceited or really quiet. Hate that. Then if I talk I come off like an airhead or a brain or sometimes simply a nice person, but I always feel like an ugly air

Week Fifteen: Day Ninety-Eight

Arrgh! So my skin was dry and REALLY flaky ALL day!!! And then I went to the bathroom and had this pinhole of blood right inbetween my eyes from a popped zit I wasn't even aware of! I know I itched my face quite a bit but I never touched myself inbetween my eyes, I mean, I'd remember that! Didn't even know I had a zit there! So unfair, I thought it was food or something (didn't know what 'cause i didn't eat anything red but whatever) so I tried to get it off, resulting in more blood! Grr!

Okay so my skin felt real tight today. Kinda flaky and itchy too. Don't know why, didn't change anything. Ohhh well. Well nothing much to report,..um,.I made a new friend And I finished all my math homework in class (second time this semester!) Yes! And I'm real close to finishing this book for english even though we weren't supposed to until the end of the week. Ha! And soon I'm going to a recital and after that second band rehearsal,..I'm hoping if there's a break and my dad doesn't

Week Fourteen: Day Ninety Six

Wow, so I now fail at keeping a daily skin blog. Well anyways I used aha as a moisturizer again for the past two nights. Wow, its definately working. Its easier to see results on the lefthand side of my face than the right hand. Don't know why acne's worse on one side verses the other but whatever. Oh yeah and guess what! I'm understanding math!! I'm pretty sure its because I'm making a better effort to pay attention and I don't question what information they are telling us. Before

Alright, so I've had a TON of candy and a TON of chips and I feel TIRED and DRAINED and FRUSTRATED XD. Blerp. I think my phone fell out of my pocket at school somewhere in the grass v.v I called it too so someone might of found it who won't give it back to me But yeah,..four hour rehearsal with breaks and a ton of food. I wore a housecoat and pajama bottoms But anyways my skin's doing fine I guess. I can tell there are a lot of potential breakouts under the skin, it almost looks patch

Okay, so yesterday was THE BEST DAY EVER!! It was so entertaining! Today wasn't nearly as cool but it was still pretty awesome I saw someone with another girl, that someone who I thought was hitting on me (which I'm pretty sure he was, that was right before he got together with her) and I didn't feel sad! I was a LITTLE put off and kinda nauseous,... and weirded out because they were looking right at me for no reason I know of. Also my a good friend of mine has been dating this other good

You know when you've committed yourself to the Regimen when itching your face becomes a sinful act. I've been itching my face a lot lately and am kinda afraid of whats gonna happen XD Everything else is going alright I suppose.

Week Thirteen: Day Eighty-Eight

Okay. Well I decided to put on AHA+ for the day instead of for the night, at least today. I've noticed I actually used as much AHA+ and BP so something tells me I gotta use more BP and less AHA+ XD Also I'm thinking about going to the store and trying to find something for my back,..even if I don't completely clear up back there it'd be nice to have less acne. Can't afford to use the regimen for back, even if it does work. Also I'm reaallly craving chocolate right now >w< And pract

Week Thirteen: Day Eighty Seven

Good Morning all! So my skin is doing great. It's not as red as it used to be, and there are only about two prominent white heads down by my jaw. (probably from not brushing my teeth before the regimen, but after). I have definately lowered use of BP. Makes my skin tone look better if I only use the reccommended amount. And I'm wondering right now what month # I'm approaching? Its SOO weird its already April. So I think I'm approaching month four now. Well truth be told I haven't expe

Weird how it takes five hours of rehearsal to realize how much I love being a musician. Alright skin first: Its doing very well. My dark spots continue to fade away to specs and if I squint my lefthand cheek almost looks clear (I take pics of the right, my worst one) I do have active acne but I don't mind it that much Because its WAY less then I had before and I know exactly why I've been getting it A combination of purging from AHA+ and I've been touching my face too much. Also I d

So apparently I'm playing in a concert Saturday and I'm rehearsing all day tomorrow. Kk. >w< If I wasn't doing that I'd be doing homework and cleaning so big whoop. As for my skin I've been touching it too much. I rested my face on the back of a chair and left little specks of white debri all over it. I'm very tired and am probably going to be even worse tomorrow. I need to shower,...ugh,...I've also been having more emotional issues lately. Its probably the lack of sleep but som

Ooo week thirteen. This week's bound to be ominous or bothersome in some way. Or incredibly lucky. Hahah. I'm really not sure what superstitions are more common place. So here's my most recent progress picture: http://i746.photobucket.com/albums/xx109/T...0407102107b.jpg I have been a lot more dry then usual, and when I'm dry I tend to touch my face more (wet my hands in an attempt to hide the flakiness) and thus create more acne. But my dark spots are fading noticeably now. As for
