The situation is that about a week ago, I realized I was doing the regimen incorrectly : (. Lucky I caught it because I was getting little to no results.
Feeling revitalized I bought some AHA+ form DAN! And boy I am amazed. For those of you who are having extremely dry skin to the point where it is peeling- I recommend trying what I did. Buy the AHA and use it as you nightly moisturizer! I have seen no peeling and it has been half a week!
So just a quick update for the slim possibility that anyone is following this , in between doing my regimen steps haha.
Thanks to All and stay clear,
P.S. pictures are coming soon** and soon being relative
To anyone actually following my blog, which is so rad and everyone should, I apologize for the lack of updates here in the past week. I think life sometimes just throws some surprises at us, to say the least I was busy. With the moving out, finishing my freshmen year in college, and even getting my first internship. A long week, but full of the excitement that only living life to the fullest can bring.
Anyway lets move away from this and one to acne and my progress on The Regimen. Overall, I have not seen much improvement I seem to get the same amount of breakouts. However the regimen seem to provide a faster turnover rate for this acne, by this I mean they breakouts seem to dry up and vanish more rapidly. One thing that I have to admit, I have been popping whitehead(it is just to hard to resist!). I need desperately need to break this popping habit as it leads to scarring, but they are so hideous and a quick fix is hard to resist.
I will continue the regimen, also I have been watching some of Dan's videos and I am going to go buy a ZINC supplement, in the hopes that it will help me.
Also a side note, I am worried about the scarring that will emerge once some of the acne has cleared. So any tips on how to reduce or eliminate scarring are welcome. Please Post them below along with you comments and other insights.
here is an updated photo! ------->
So today I completed the dreaded task of shaving. Agh! Shaving with acne on your face does not feel great. But, I must say that shaving with the Acne.org cleanser was a good experience. No nicks or cuts, which usually happens to me.
I must admit that I did not apply BP this morning because I wanted my skin to recover a bit, but I will apply BP tonight.
As for how my face felt throughout the today, it feels good. Although after a 7 hours or so the lotion seemed to wear off and I felt a bit dry. This was quickly remedied with another application of the lotion.
That is really all I have today. I am looking forward to seeing results in the coming weeks!
Thanks for listening,
Acne, for those who do not struggle with condition, I am forever envious! Unfortunately I have been living with acne since about age 13. Even more unfortunate is the fact that it has gotten progressively worse. I am 18 now. I have tried .01% Tretinion, and my face did in fact get better.
After a while even the Tretionoin stopped working and the breakouts came back, with a vengeance.
I am here now and ready to try the Acne.org treatment, I am skeptical, but secretly hoping for the best. Like most people with acne, I just want, at the least, a few days with clear skin. A few days of waking up without a new breakout, and a few day of high self confidence.
Lets hope for the best. I will be posting pictures weekly if I can get around to it.
I have applied the 3 step Acne.org process. I have noticed it stings a little for a few hours after applying the BP. Hopefully this will go away as my skin gets comfortable with be pillaged by the BP.
Here are two pictures! It has been like a week since I have shaved so it obscure some of the acne, but they are pictures nonetheless.
If you have any tips, tricks for a Acne.org treatment newbie. Please post them, especially if you know how to make the stinging STOP!
Thanks for reading!
