Day 12

Aloha! Well today was an okay day... I woke up with two new pimples (It's due to be TTOM like, tomorrow though so I'm blaming it on that). The one was just a little whitehead which came out easily, and the other was something strange and small which I also gently sorted out a few minutes ago (oops...) I didn't cause any damage though! Otherwise, I have a little scab on my forehead at the moment, and some other light marks which I still don't like. Suppose I'll jsut have to be patient! I'm n

Day 11 and 12

Whoops I slacked again!! Day 11 Wasn't such a good day... I can't really remember what i ate, except that it was fruit salad for breakfast... Yes I know that's not very helpful... i did take my vitex and zinc though. I had some veggies and potato for dinner though. I've decided I'm going to stop taking Niacin because it seems to be messing with my stomach, and it's not actually helping my skin one bit... =/ Disappointing but true unfortunately... I also picked on this day... on my

Day 9 and 10

Oops I've been a bit slack with posting these past two days! Day 9 Well on this day I peeled off the scabs gently, and there was some pink skin, and I could see it wasn't totally ready to be exposed yet, lol, but it seems to heal faster if I do that... So I had two reddish/pinkish marks that were at least a little easeir to cover with makeup. I didn't get any new active ones. Unfortunately I can't quite remember what I ate, but I did have homemade pizza friday night, which did hav

Day 8

Wow time flies! I'm past the 1 week mark already! So today was quite a good day... I cheated a little with some yummy stuff, but I seem to be okay as long as I really limit it, and don't overdo it. Of course things like chocolate are a huge no-no though... Skin status: No new blemishes at all. The two scabs are still scabs and haven't really changed at all, lol... I'm hoping they'll be more dried up tomorrow morning, and even more so by tomorrow evening, cos I'm keen to gently peel the

Day 7

So... today was a good day, I guess, except for the aftermath from yesterday sitting on my two cheeks.... I enjoyed using my C&C Cleanser again - I coulf feel it working, and I'd missed that - the Benzac really felt rather.... flat.... Skin status: I have no knew breakouts (YAY!) But those two buggers on my cheeks are horrible and so damn depressing! The larger one of the two has sort of scabbed over now, and the one on the other side seems to be in the process of deciding wh

Change to Skin Care Regimen

So, I've come up with a very simple little strategy to help me with the skin picking, and I also went to pick up some cleanser because I ran out of the Benzac wash. I decided that I'm going to go back to my good old tried and true Clean and Clear Continuous Control cleanser (5% BP) - something I've used on and off for years, and something that has always worked awesomely. I've tried Benzac, and it works, albeit not as well as C&C, so I'm going back, and sticking with it this time! It ne

Day 6 actual log

So, as you know, I screwed up again yesterday, and here I'm sitting with a cm in diamater size wound on each of my cheeks. I thought I was doing so good, but then all of a sudden I just cracked, and those ones didn't even look bad at all before I messed with them! They were hardly visible. Ah well, I just gotta keep trying! Skin condition: Oh boy, I hate this... Well, no "active ones" as such, but, I have two wounds, one on each side of my face on my cheeks, which I've covered up with makeu

Day 5

Grrrr! I hate PMS breakouts! Well I at least hope that's what this is... I've been a bit lenient with my diet too these past 2 days though, but something gives me the feeling it's not that anyway... Skin status: Well I've developed about three or four tiny whiteheads on my left cheek, (one if which I popped gently and is disappearing fast now, and theres still the bugger on my other cheek from yesterday. That one hasn't become any bigger though, so it seems leaving it alone and putting TT

Day 4

Two steps forward, one step back? Sigh... =/ Skin status: Well, it seems that little bit of dairy and sugar has decided to take just a little revenge! Well either that or the fact that TTOM is coming up... Luckily nothing terrible yet, but a little bugger has planted itself on my lower cheek, near my mouth. It's not that visible yet, and I've poisoned it with some tea tree oil tonight so I hope it'll zap it before it gets any worse. I've noticed one or two tiny tiny skin-coloured bumps too

Day 3

So, day 3 out the way and things are looking good! Skin status: Pretty much clear at the moment, YAY! I expect to start breaking out soon though, because its just over a week till that time of the month... The monster on my cheek's scab came off, and its just a pink bit of skin now which is awesome. The mark on my jawline has also faded a little, and then i still have a few other marks from old blemishes. The small active one on my forehead has disappeared now... One looked like it was gonn

Day 2 - Update

Just a quick update on the evening of my second day! Skin status: The little monster on my cheek is looking better, and its pretty much a scab now, which I don't like, but it's better than anything sore and inflamed. I hope it loosens and falls off soon! The little scab on my jawline has come off and there is just a little fresh pink skin there now, which I'm happy about. No new active ones, and there is no change on the small one on my forehead. The pink mark on my forehead is fading quite

Day 2

So, things aren't looking too bad this morning. It's quite a "good" time of the month for me, so not really much active, but I do still have my screw-ups sticking around from my itchy fingers =/ I have one tiny one on my forehead that's not really bothering me - it's not even visible to the human eye (except for my eye of course lol) And otherwise its just healing marks now. I have that little monster on my cheek which is no longer swollen this morning, but has a bit of a light brown scab

Whoohoo! Received my Niacin in my postbox today!

Just a quick update: I received my niacin in the postbox and just took my first dose of the Solgar No Flush Inositol Hex. bound 500mg. I don't look or feel any different, lol =D An update on picking: I did pick a little during the course of today, but gently, hoping to drain this stupid bugger on my cheek because I knew if I didn't it'd stay for ages now that I'd messed with it. I also applied my topical crushed zinc tablet dissolved in water concoction in between for 10min at a time t

Day 1

Hi everyone! So here I am, starting a brand new regimen that I plan to STICK TO for 60 days, and I plan to be clear by the end of it, whether my skin likes it or not. To give you an overview of what my skin is like: My acne is very mild, consisting mostly of pustules, and other small pimples, as well as some blackheads. I get breakouts around ovulation time, and the week before menstruation, as well as one or two pimples in between. Chocolate breaks me out BIG TIME, and i think I might well
