Night 11 Haven't noticed any improvement, still broken out everywhere. Tried applying my Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Gel as spot treatment. Quite broken out on my neck and jawline. It sucks - plus I can't help but pick (trying to stop!) so it makes my face look red. Sigh. When is this stuff gonna work?! Well, only 3 more nights (including tonight!) til I'm leaving the benzoyl peroxide on for the entire night. I hope that will lead to an improvement...
Day 7/Night 8 Tonight I leave the BP on for a full hour. YAY! Since the second night when I accidentally left it on for a few minutes too long, I haven't had any dryness or redness from it. Today was the third time I used my Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA 10% Glycolic Acid 2% Salicylic Acid Acne Clearing Gel. I don't notice a difference at ALL. I am so broken out right now, will take pics tomorrow for a week milestone... Granted, most of these zits were just starting when I started the regi
Day 5 Ugh, I have 3 new zits, one in the center of my face on my forehead next to my hair line and two next to each other (making it look like one big zit) on my lower right cheek. Grrr...I am only on Day 5 (well, night 5, day 4) of my new skin care routine, so I cannot place blame. It's most likely because I'm expecting "that time of the month" any day now. I'm anxious for it to arrive, because I want to go back on birth control to hopefully get my body acne back under control! I
Day 4 So I am sitting right now with the BP 10% on my face, waiting for the 30 min to be up. On this regimen, every three days for two weeks I increase the time I leave the BP on until I wash it off. I love the way my skin feels afterwards - dry and smooth! Every other day I put on the AHA 10%. Yesterday was my first go around with it. I got the Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel and it was nice. I followed the instructions to a T. I felt a tiny bit of stinging by my left temp
Day 2 So a lot is going on. I went to the Natural Medicine Center (which is a part of my insurance provider) to sign up for treatments for my back and joint pain. I was prescribed Acupuncture and two nutritional consultations. Nutritional consultations? That means that I can possibly get a better grip on eating healthy! I eat oatmeal for breakfast when I have time, and try to cook healthfully for dinner, mostly some kind of chicken breast dish. I've still put on a few pounds this win
So I decided to go ahead and start Laura's regimen based on a PM confirming my suspicions that I have non-inflamed acne. So excited! eusa_dance.gif These are the (local) items I will be using. Sorry for the long list of ingredients, but since they are made in Israel, there are not many returns on google for certain products! Cleanser: L'oreal Pure Zone Exfoliating Gel Wash Toner: Careline Delicate Toner (The only toner w/o alcohol I could find!) Ingredients: Purified Water, P
Hello to anyone reading (if anyone is!). Today is would be Day 3, but I'm having second thoughts. The first two go arounds I didn't suffer any side effects that I know of except for the dry skin I mentioned, but I suffer from numerous things, such as depression, anxiety, and fibromyalgia. I have terrible joint pain and stiffness, and I'm 23! After reading more and more about Accutane, I have to wonder if it's a delayed side effect?? While Accutane is pretty cheap (yay socializ
Hello everyone! I'm pretty excited about trying Accutane for the third time. I know, it is very rare (80% of first time users are free and clear and never need it again, only 20% need a second course), especially considering this is my THIRD time! Granted, spread out over 11 years. Lucky me. I have been suffering from acne since I was 9 years old. Yay puberty! My body acne was so bad that I didn't want to wear a nice dress for my Bat Mitzvah; I was super depressed about it. My Ba
