I am now on week 6 and my face has cleared up quite a lot but I still have a lot of pimples on my forehead, side of the forehead and some on my cheeks. I haven't been getting a lot of sleep lately so maybe thats why it hasn't been improving. I'm going to start catching up on sleep by tomorrow so I'll be looking forward to it.
I'm glad I have started the BP treatment though. I feel confident to walk outside with no makeup on. Even though it isn't flawless.. compared to before, it is a lot better!
I just noticed how I haven't written about my 3rd week on BP. So I'll explain as much as I can remember. There were days where my face was red and very irritating. My skin dried a lot and my skin was peeling too, which led to a lot of discoloration. Yesterday I exfoliated my skin with a homemade exfoliater (honey, green tea, sugar). Most of the discoloration went away when I saw my face this morning. It's not as dry as it was for the past couple days. But it still is excessively dry. I still have a lot of noticeable pimples on my forehead. Which makes me angry in some ways. But I'm still waiting on the BP to work. Sometimes I apply the BP at night, which makes that twice a day. I'm not sure if that's allowed but I remember him saying "The more, the better". So I just decided to give it a try. Although at some times it made my skin dry out a lot more than usual. I haven't put any make up on my face for the past 3 weeks. It gave me a lot more confidence to go outside and I've been getting the hang of it. I'm hoping to see a lot more changes this week since it's week 4. Theres still pimples on my face (especially my forehead) but I'm going to give it time. Once in a while, there would be new pimples forming, but that's alright. I don't expect any treatment to go perfectly. I'm just still crossing my fingers on this regimen. I hope it works for me.
Today's the last day of week 2. My face hasn't been breaking out more lately --- which is good. I can't say for sure but I do feel like my pimples decreased in size. But whenever I ask my sisters, they can't tell. So I'm rather confused. I'm still not giving up of course! I have a couple more weeks to go before I can judge so I'm still excited to see the results. Still hoping they work. My mom popped some pimples and blackheads of mine about 2 days ago. Only the ones that were necessary. The day after, it looked a bit bad, but it looks a lot better now. Tomorrow I will be using more BP treatment. Can't wait!
At times, my face seemed to look like it got better. At times, it seemed worse. But I am not on the verge of giving up just yet, for it is only the second week. As of now, I feel like it is slowly progressing but not in any state where it is immediately noticeable. I will wait 2 more weeks until I can fully judge if this product works for me or not. But all in all, I hope that it does. I am starting my healthy diet and daily exercise so I help that this helps me along the way.
The past few days have been relatively the same. I applied the same amount, and some days at night time I would apply a little more on my forehead. (Since there is an excessive amount of pimples there). I haven't really seen much of an improvement. Nothing has really disappeared but rather slightly faded. It's still there though. I am barely on my second week though so it is not the time to judge. Hopefully this week I can really see some more changes. Good thing it hasn't been irritating my skin though. That would have been a bother. Today, I added a little more of the treatment. It makes it easier to apply. Good luck to myself!
Today I feel some irritation and I can see the redness on my face. I think it is because I had to apply the treatment twice today. I ended up showering during the day because I have to attend my mom's friend's son's graduation party. Does that make sense? Although I look like a monster, I don't mind because they are mexicans and make the best real mexican food ever! Yum! I must contain myself and eat in small amounts though. (I am on my diet!) I think I shall exercise a little longer today! I haven't seen any changes on my face just yet. All my pimples are still there. I still feel insecure. I'm just hoping it works. It has to work... Or I'll feel hopeless. Mleh! I need to buy a new moisturizer. It's been making my face dry lately. Way more than usual. I'll add in some more updates later! Time to get ready.
Note: I am also trying not to wear make up for the next couple weeks. I don't want it to clog my pores. (It's going to be so hard! I hate walking around in public when I look ugly!)
This morning, I received the package from the mail. I followed the directions precisely and was surprised to find that it didn't irritate my skin. At least, not as much as I expected it too. I am very excited to see the results. I cannot wait for a week to go by! Today is also the start of my new diet so I'm hoping that it'll help the process of getting rid of my acne.
Tonight, I cut thin slices of potatoes and put them on my eyebags. I heard that it can help reduce it so I'm going to give that a try. I also got cold ice water and applied it to my face with my fingertips to help reduce the size of my pores. I'm going to continue these routines daily to see if they actually work!
I decided to make this blog to keep track of my acne problem. As of now, I have severe acne on my forehead. I'm not sure what the cause of it is... but I've had it for a couple months now and it seems to be getting worse. I have had acne on my cheeks ever since my senior year in high school, but as the time goes by, it is getting a lot worse and more scars are becoming visible. I also have acne on the side of my head (both sides) and it's been there for a while as well. As a young teenager, I never had acne until my senior year in high school. I began wearing make up and as time went by, the amount of acne on my face began to increase. Without thinking, I continued applying more and more make up to cover the acne till this day. As my acne began to worsen, make up no longer covered my blemishes as it used to. I decided to look online for a way to clear my acne. I have tried many things, but none of them have managed to get rid of my acne. After reading many reviews of success on this website, I am willing to try this product. The only thing I am afraid of is that I have really dry skin due to eczema and I am afraid of my skin drying out. But I read that it is also a part of the process so I am willing to take a risk. Hopefully, this will resolve my problem with acne and help get rid of it. I am nervous yet excited for the results at the same time. Today I will order the treatment online. Let's see how it works out. Wish me luck!
