Giving up on Vitamin A

I'm still going to take it as a supplement. I've just given up applying it to my face. A week of Tea Tree Oil has been pretty good at keeping whiteheads from forming-- but my non-inflammed acne is as bad as ever It could be worse. I could have blackheads and be bleaching everything I own. I think I'll stick to this for the time being- perhaps working Nizoral in a few times a week to see if that improves things. In closing; I don't think I would suggest breaking open A capsules and ap

Bad week.

The non-inflammed acne seems to be steadily getting worse. This, naturally, is leading me to pick at my face more, which in turn is probably making more clogged pores. I'm feeling very frustrated today. Perhaps the Vitamin A isn't as stellar as I thought? I still feel I must note my face is markedly less red, even with the comedones. I had heard anecdotal reports, but never realized what bad red-marks BP causes. Truly, I don't want to go back to BP, but this doesn't seem to be wor

Not bad, but not great.

Over the past week I have lost all of my active pustules. This is good news, I'm not sure if it is because I laid off touching my face or the vitamin A. Unfortunately, when I go to look in the mirror I now have a sea of blackheads and pebbles staring back at me. I suppose I never noticed them before (or, rather, I did, but they never stuck around very long.) I can't help but find this very discouraging-- and I must admit I backslid a bit and went at a few blackheads on my chin with an esthe

The story so far-- and questions about Tretinoin

This Saturday will mark exactly one week since I vowed to stop touching my face, and four days of the Vitamin A regimen. Both the immense amount of support I gain from reading other people's blogs and the lack of examples on this website to illustrate what I'm doing specifically have lead me to make my own blog to chronicle my journey. I am going to post some photos of my skin tonight after I've removed my makeup, so I'll have a reference, still, these won't be totally accurate. This

Greetings;

After having used BP with limited success (first Proactive for a year or two during middle school, and over the past year Dan's stuff) I have decided that the benefits do not outweigh the negatives. Namely: I hate bleaching everything my face comes into contact with (clothes, hair, sheets, boyfriend.) Despite exercising much care, the occasional mishap seems unaviodable. The cost is too high. I am struggling to pay my way through college-- and two jobs is just barely allowing me to scrap
