Okay everyone, I have discovered the product that everyone on the face of the earth could benefit from lol! It has done AMAZING things for my skin, just in the one week I've been using it. It's the Olay ProX Professional face cleansing/exfoliating/pore-minimizing tool. It's essentially a cheaper version of the Clarisonic. For those of you who have no clue what I'm talking about, it's basically a toothbrush for your face. The Clarisonic version is made by the same people that make the Sonic
Hey everyone! It's the end of week 5, so it's time to update everyone on the status of my acne-yippeee lol! Alright let's get right into it, I'm still really happy with what's been happening with my skin! I'm so glad I can say that and I hope that I can continue to be happy with it. I think the area around my mouth/chin is trying to break out though, that's my only complaint this week. Here's the situation: I'm starting a new job at my local hospital and I've been sitting in the 8 hour new-
Hey everyone! So I've finished week 4 on the Regimen and we're still making progress! Last week I talked about the dreaded flakes, and I think I've found a good remedy for it. I know that new Regimen users are supposed to follow it very strictly and not add in any extra steps/products. Well, I'm a rule-breaker! I cannot stand these flakes and I'm honestly more embarrassed to have them than acne (at least pimples are normal- when is it normal for your face to be shedding like a snake?!). I w
Well, I have finally experienced the dreaded FLAKES! And let me just tell you, they suck! Like I've said in previous blog posts, I'm a make-up wearer, and it's almost impossible to wear anything on your face during this flaking period. In my last post I said I hadn't had any flakes yet, and obviously I've jinxed it because the very next day they started! Anyway, I'm extremely happy with the way my faces looks right now, other than the flakes. My bumps seem to have faded significantly and I'
Hey guys! I'm almost to week 2, so I thought I'd give you a little update on how the Regimen is going. So far, I'm pleased with what I'm seeing. There are already noticeable changes in my skin, some for the good and some for the not-so-good. Let's start with the good first! My skin appears to be clearing up a little bit. Of course my bumps aren't disappearing, but there are significant changes. I haven't had any new breakouts since I've been on the Regimen. A couple days ago I woke up and h
So I've been doing the Regimen for almost a week now and I'm alright with how it's turning out. I've been doing it for 6 days now, and I'm starting to get EXTREMELY dry! I've been cleansing extra gently, twice a day, around 8-12 hours apart, I'm using the recommended pea-sized amount of BP, and I've been doing 1 pump of moisturizer in the morning and the full 2 pumps at night. It's been kind of a hard adjustment for my morning routine. Like I've said before, I'm someone who can get shower/
Okay, I'm posting my intro and everything today, but I actually started The Regimen on Saturday, January 22nd. I received it early Saturday morning with my mail and I was very excited to give it a try! So I dug into my box, got all my products out, and got online to go over the steps a few more times before trying it myself. I ordered the cleanser, BP, and the moisturizer. I'm thinking I might order the jojoba oil and the AHA eventually, but I'd like to give this stuff a try before I spend
Hey! My name is Alyssa and I'm 21 years old. Throughout my middle school/high school/teenage years, I never had acne. I might have had one or two pimples on my chin/forehead every few months or so. It was nothing that a little concealer couldn't handle. But about 1 1/2-2 years ago, my face exploded! It feels like I just woke up one morning and had 10-12 bumps all over my forehead/nose/chin; which was definitely a surprise! I've always been someone who tries to take care of my skin. I always was
