other options

I am going to try benzoyl peroxide every other day and see if the itchyness goes away. till the end of march. If that doesn't work: plan 1 I found an article about topicals. I might use Salicylic acid with differin(I spent $80 on it so why not use it) if the benzoyl keeps being a pain. plan 2: only a face wash and moisturizer

I'm going to buy soft, white towels, all my colored ones are getting bleached. Oh yeah and the reccomended lotion.

now

after my face returned to normal I started using a very thin layer of bp once a day just on my worst broken out areas. I am still doing this. I have some itchyness, depending on how much I put on. To help the itchyness I use alot of moisturizer and put a warm wash cloth on my face. The bp is working. I have not been consistent with the regimen. My goal is to be consistent. Its hard to use bp because I hate the itchyness. I wish there was an alternative. I am going to be consistent and just use the bp at night and only a tiny bit. I'm going to buy the moisturizer that dan reccomends.

starting the regimine

I started using the bp by just spotting some of the big pimples I had. I did this for a week. One night I couldn't stand the acne so I put a whole lot of bp. That was a very bad idea because I felt like I had fried my face in the sun. It was so red and itchy! I let my face return to normal(2 days). I applied a lot of moisturizer, 4x each day. This helped with the ichyness.

buying the products

I didn't want to buy the acne.org products. I wanted to make sure my skin could handle benzoyl peroxide. My skin was very sensitive to proactive. I think I started it too fast. So I bought the small tube of the nutrogena bp spot-treatment. I also bought the clean and clear wash for sensitive skin that dan reccomended. I am using the beauty control moisturizer. I bought these in January.

finding acne.org

In january I was searching the web, desperate to find something that was guarenteed to work. I was sick of all the failed attempts. I found acne.org, all the success stories made me want to try it.
