I am taking Aleve for premenstal acne now. I have seen a HUGE increase in breakouts in the past three days and I think that my cycle might be the culprit. I'm worried about taking too much. So just one a day for me I suppose. My skin is really dry now too. I guess maybe I'll lay off the BP at least in the morning. Is it normal to experience flaking everytime you ramp up the dosage? I waited until all my dry skin went away from the previous amount. Now this amount seems to be way too much..
So I thought everything was getting much better. But I am starting to break out again at the same old rate I was. I am supposed to start my period next week so I am taking Aleve to try and curb the acne from my hormones. Overall this is upsetting, but I guess I was expecting this to happen. Maybe this is just an initial breakout because I increased my BP. I will keep going! This has to work eventually! Right? It sucks to feel like I look like a fifteen year old when in reality
I have upped my BP dosage a little. Now I am doing a little over a quarter finger length with minimal dryness. I still have breakouts. Less and less though. The redmarks are remaining for what feels like a long time. But I am still very hopeful that in 12 days I will be looking even better.

Yesterday I said it was week 1 day 6. I was wrong, today is infact week 1 day 6. I feel like I am making progress. More pimples are coming, I can feel them under my skin. But I think that they will heal faster than before. My skin is not as dry with less BP and jojoboa oil. I will probably continue at this rate of BP until more dryness has subsided. Then I plan to only increase the amount I am doing at night. I would rather this process take forever than to get a horribly red an
Due to a comment by on my last post I decided to decrease the amount of BP I am currently using to avoid the flakiness of ramping up too quickly. I think this is helping me already. My skin is much less dry and rough today. I will keep doing a quarter of my finger length twice a day for awhile until all flakiness and dryness has gone away. I also started using jojoba oil before and after cleansing. This adds significant time onto my regimen but I suppose it is all worth it. I am havi
I am currently on day 5 of the regimen. Prior to doing the regimen I was using a prescription Obagi set with BP so my skin is very used to BP. My first week I am using about the amount of BP I think most people would start using at week 4. More than half a finger length. I am also using AHA at night. AHA seems to help my pimples to fade. I am experiencing lots of flakes but overall the results from this first week are really encouraging. Some pimples that were very stubborn and
