week 3. day 3
just a short update.
Got it from "what to expect" in moderate acne.
-Skin continues to clear and breakouts are minimized. Skin is less red and no longer itches. Red spots from old acne are evident.
this is exactly what happening to my face right now. not yet clear but improvement is there. hihi. so i am now excited in my week 5 or so.
Looking good today. The best since I started the regimen. Im not saying that my face is already clear but Its not red anymore to the point that i can now manage to go outside and bought some stuff in nearby store lol. I actually locked myself here inside the house for the past few monts. tahaha. My sis also told me that she only saw spots on my face rather than seeing me like a walking human tomato before. lol. I hope i dont jinx myself by saying this. tralala.This is so unpredictable.. good,ok,worse. I hope this progress will continue because I want to go to mall tomorrow to watch eclipse with my bestfriend. I miss the outside world
I also have body acne. And I will try Gold bond medicated powder as suggested in the forum here. I want to order in Ebay,hope my sis allow me to use her paypal. haha. wait for it and give it a shot. hopefully this will work for me too because I read in the forum that it works awesome since it has zinc oxide and salicylic acid ingredient.
Day 11 and 12
Yesterday was awful. I felt like a monster. My chin was terrible, full of white zits. I popped it. white liquid and blood ooze. eewww! I did it after I washed my face then apply a full amount of BP especially in my chin area then moisturize of course.
Every time I wake up in the morning my face looks good then afterwards my face goes like red,less red. alternating from worst to good. my pimples I popped yesterday dried and looks so much better than yesterday. I hope breakouts would stop. haha. well, still excited to see my results after a month or two. My mom told me that she feel that I will gonna have a clear skin next month. crossed finger. I hope so. Mom's knows best. right? lol
hey guys! before you start the regimen you must read this wonderful post first:
this is very motivating. haha
My face is doing good right now, less red,less flakey,less dry.some areas of my face without acne are getting much better.(my mom and brother also noticed it.) My face is somehow quite clear because my old acne are gradually fading but I had breakouts since day 7. I deal with it. More than 10 bumps and some white zits. arrrgghh. But I am trying not to obsess with it. I am expecting it anyway because my face is adjusting to BP. Patience is definitely a must.
day 6,7 and 8.
day 6 and 7.
Damn! my face was sooooo red yesterday. The reddest face ever since i started the regimen.
it was awful it made me cry. plus 5-10 pimples poppin out. grrrr. 2 huge pimples in my chin. I thought about eating too much ice cream and fries made my face red. LOLs. Im so paranoid now. but i believe that diet affect acne build up. I hope it's a part of the healing process.Then at night after i washed my face,my skin was so dry and flaky. But I still continue to follow the regimen. Giving up is not in my vocabulary Well,I already read it in to "what to expect" so i already expected it. but then breakouts could be very distressing to all of us.
and oh.. I bought stieffel acne aid bar for my body.Its is way more expensive than dove. haha, but I could care less as long as it healed my body acne. (165 php or about 3 dollars here.)
I woke up by 2am because my face is sooo itchy and irritated. arrgh. .then I woke up this morning and looked in the mirror and I've seen 10 pustules (with white ooze in the inside) YUCKY! I want to pop it soo bad. I did. there are only 3 now. nyahahaha my face is less red now. still dry and flaky. Btw,the stieffel acne aid works good on my body acne. It dried up the pimples so i decided to change my dove bar to acne aid this night for my face and hope for the better.
I will still follow dan's regimen.
that's all for now.bye.
hey there. just call me hello ninja because i've been hiding my face like a ninja ever since this stubborn acne ruled my face/body and life. lol, im 21, female from Philippines. Half filipino-half chinese. lot of people says I got a great complexion and says im cute only if I dont have acne and it hurts my ego. huhuhu. Fvck ACNE!! I suffered acne when i was 11 years old. yea.. too bad, it ruined my childhood and teenage life. ACNE SUCK bigtime! well everyone agree, right? well, back to my story. I guess i had hormonal acne because my father has it and my 2 siblings. I tried everything under the sun and nothing seemed to work except for seeing dermatologist because i have this feeling that they just make my skin more worst. For 10 years of having this acne I got cleared for 1 year with no meds and topical at all,just simple face wash and cleanser and some restrictions to my diet. I was so happy I thought i just grew out of it.
Then because of stress i guess my acne is coming back one by one after my licensure examination. (december 2009)but it doesn't bother me at all because it was just mild compare the other years. but then i browse on the internet and came acrossed this site. I was so stupid because I ignored the regimen and search for make up that could mask my mild acne instead. I ended up buying revlon's colorstay liquid foundation and it did the trick. I look i have the clearer skin ever. I used it for 3 months and It didn't break me out. But one day I decided to use it everyday. hahaha. yea i know. Im so stupid and the shitty thing was i slept with it one night. hahaha. (because i was with someone and i dont want to see me without make up. I feel ugly without it. hehehe)then BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!
april 2010 i broke out so bad!!!!!!!! it was one of my saddest days ever. to the point that i dont want to go outside anymore. I cried myself to sleep. I dont want to see even my bestfriend I thought about accutane that time because i think that would be the last resort coz i looked like a monster with lots of bumps,zits,white heads,blackheads especially to my jawline,nose and chin. my face is soooo red that time. I dont want to look in the mirror. I decided to go to hospital and see a dermatologist for the first time..but funny because i went to 2 hospital that day..the 1st hospital has no derma. wtf? LOL then the 2nd hospital was closed. LOL. well, i think everything happens for a reason. at home. i sit by myself and remembered the site ACNE.ORG i read all the info especially the regimen. I am quite skeptical at first because of it's simplicity. i read a tons of success story to give me a hope. It took me 3 days to finally give it a try. I want all of the family to agree with me too. and I dont have to lose. I looked like a garbage. hahaha.
I went to a local drug store to purchased what i need. this is what ive got:
dove bar (i used it before and i like it) 40 php.
Panoxyl 2.5 BP 175php
celeteque facial moisturizer 130php
about 8 dollars. cheap huh?
sorry for the long story
