Well here it goes...I first broke out when I was in the 7th grade. I didn't know what those nasssy bastards on my face were. Being the youngest of 4, I never saw blemishes on my siblings faces. I thought I was having an allergic reaction to something, apparently my mom did also because she made me an appointment. Crap ass doctor told me to put oxy or clearasil and and have a good day. That was the beginning of the end for me. When I was in the 10th grade I was put on retin-a, which worked, for a while. Iv'e constantly been broken out since. Some days are better than others and some weeks are better than others. The only time I have had clear skin which allowed me to NOT wear makeup was when I was pregnant with my now 7 year old princess. WTF!!! I'm 28! when is this nonsense going to end?? I started the regimen 3 weeks ago. I started full strength because Iv'e been using BP for years, just not so much at one time. First few times stung a little. No redness, no flaking, no itching. I immediatley could tell those nasssy little bastards were drying up. Just a few days ago I started to breakout!! I know..I know...I read "what to expect" I'm still pissed, irritated, frusterated!! I'm going to keep on with it though, and hope for the best. I'm just going to accept that I will be 70 years old going to the drugstore to buy some f****n depends and BP. Poor me.
