Quick Post... Well, things are definitely improving. I'm pretty much sold on The Regimen now. My skin is looking much better and I have had barely any new breakouts. The new pimples I do get pop up and go away in a matter of a day or two. I'm still have trouble with flaking, but it's getting better and it's a small price to pay for clearer-looking skin. I hope that within the next few weeks I can up my BP dosage without irritation. I'm also going to try using AHA in place of moisturiz
Observations: Old marks are clearing up. There's still discoloration, but it's fading faster than I expected. My face is still peeling a bit, but I have gotten my moisturizing regimen down pretty well and have reduced shine quite a bit (I just use less moisturizer on my t-zone area). Jojoba oil works great. I have 3 or 4 active pimples, but they're small and not very noticeable. That's a big difference. I can actually SEE my progress, which is very encouraging.

Jojoba oil helps a lot but, again, it leaves my face super shiny. Any suggestions for: Redness/marks preventi
Kicking off WEEK 2... A few updates: My chin has broken out even worse and now I'm almost positive it was because I used AHA+ on a forming zit. I'm gonna hold off on using AHA+ again until I've been on this regimen for over a month. I don't think my skin can handle that much irritation right now. No new breakouts today, which is good. My forehead still looks pretty bad from an earlier breakout, most likely due to my skin adjusting to the BP. Hopefully things continue to clear
A LITTLE ABOUT ME: 23-year-old guy living in LA. All my friends have outgrown their acne. My face just seems to be getting worse! I was using CTRL Acne System for about 6 weeks (the MALE formula) and all it did was break me out badly (especially on my forehead). I never really struggled with acne until I graduated from college. I'm 23 now and for the past six months especially my face has not been clear. I guess I have adult acne...great. I decided I should finally give Dan'
