- Still breaking out - Lots of dark marks being left behind from acne - Acne is staying under skin but not really "clearing", just staying hidden - Skin is less dry, but still dry and still pretty flaky - Slightly less red, but still pretty red - Skin texture is kind of funky[dry, flaky, almost crusty]

Back on Regimen + edits

Ok I'm back using the BP, but I've cut out dan's moisturizer and cleanser because my skin didn't seem to like them very much. My new regimen: Moisturizers - Bio-oil, Shiseido Pureness moisturizer, Jojoba Oil Treatments - Dan's BP, Polysporin Cleansers - Clean&Clear Morning Burst [Citrus], Aveeno Daily Avacado Scrub Morning: - Clean face with Clean&Clear Morning Burst and scrub off flakes - Wait 5 minutes then apply Acne.org BP - Wait 15 - 20 minutes then moisturize with Bio-oil,Shiseido Pureness moisturizer Night and Jojoba Oil - Clean face with Clean&Clear Morning Burst and scrub off flakes - Wait 5 minutes then apply Acne.org BP[more BP at night] - Wait 15 - 20 minutes then moisturize with both Bio-oil and Shiseido Pureness moisturizer [more moisturizer at night] I know I'm not supposed to edit the regimen, but this has been working so far for me. I also know that I'm not supposed to scrub, but for me I found that there were too many flakes Been on this for 3 weeks, I've been breaking out[guessing my skin is purging]. But after the break outs my skin[where the acne was] is clear. Going to experiment some more =p. What I experienced - Lots of flaking with BP, so I exfoliate everyday twice - Near mouth I need to scrub lots - Little bumps on skin are becoming pimples - After pimpes are gone, skin in area is clear - Breaking out, but BP is drying up the pimples in about 2 - 5 days - I'm a face picker, so scars are appearing - but I'm not TOO worried about that

Stopping temporarily

Yup, I'm stopping the regimen temporarily because it's bothering me during school [i have exams and stuff] SO it's just a huge bother. Plus my face is really red, hard to cover with makeup too since it clumps with the regimen on. It took a while for the redness to fade, but it is fading since I stopped using the BP. Right now there are a lot of bumps under my skin, I'm guessing they're "soon to be" pimples, but you can't see them, you can only feel them. Skin was also starting to really dry out from BP too. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Stopped on day 5 because of the itch/tingle and redness.

Day 3

DAY 3 - Skin is still red - still itches quite a bit - skin is not cracking, which is a good thing - some new acne is continuing to appear, as usual - cheeks seem to be the most red spots - skin looks softer - old acne is disappearing - scars still on cheeks - i popped a pimple on my nose and it is dark red from blood [it will heal within 2 weeks with Polysporin] - itchy bumps [not sure if its acne or not] popping up, they're large and under the skin. I get these sometimes, they usually disappear after a day or two.

Day 1+2

HI! First time blogging, I've had acne ever since I was about 9 or 10. I'm 16 now so I do have quite a bit of experience with acne. To simplify things, I'm just going to list the things I observed since I am not much of a writer. Climate: I live in B.C. Canada, so the weather is wet and mild. Scarring: A couple scars on cheeks, the rest of the face is clear of scars. Number of times using regimen per day: 2 [Morning and night]/7 days a week Type of acne: Mild-Moderate [in between] Facial + back acne, but only using for face to compare with back acne. Type of skin: Combination - Asian I use makeup daily, and it does not effect my acne. It actually makes my acne a bit better actually o.o. [i get less pimples with make up on]. Since I didn't post day 1 here, I will now. DAY 1! I moderated all of the proportions to start off, my skin tends to react badly if i use too much of a new product or too many new products at once. First impressions from first day: - Cleanser - Didn't sting, felt clean. But had a kind of chemical smell[i don't mind it]. - Benzoyl peroxide - Used a half a pump to start off with, stings a little bit but not too much to handle. Some spots turned pink, but they lessened with bio-oil. - Moisturizer - Sufficient moisturizing, also smelled like chemicals. And again, didn't mind it. The regimen left my skin soft! And my skin was matte, but not dry. Face itches quite a bite, and is pretty red. When a spot itched too much I put bio-oil on it to ease the itch. DAY 2! Next morning - my old pimples have shrunken[almost invisible] and gotten less red - some new pimples appeared[i have small pimples pop up almost everyday so it's normal], might just be older pimples rising to the surface or a reaction to the treatment[not sure at this point] - the one big pimple on my nose was clearing up and hurt less - treatment seems to be working I'm kind of surprised on how fast it's working! - Benzoyl peroxide still not drying, using smaller amounts - skin is soft and matte - pinkish spots from benzoyl peroxide[helps using bio-oil] - looks like I'm blushing with my whole face
