As you may have noticed with earlier posts throughout the year; I tried out Dan's Regimen, but to no avail. So here I am, back again, starting a new blog, this time with PICTURES! Oooooo pretty......
But yes, I'm now on 40mg of Roaccutane with 15mg of Prednisolone a day, just to reduce inflammation. Lets hope these upcoming months cure me eh?
Any queries about experience, or just someone to talk to, feel free to write a comment, or just message me. I'll be updating every few
So I am around, 3 months fully in. I'm still breaking out, quite harshly. My skin will die down, then it will erupt, then die down, clear up, give me hope, then erupt again.
On a brighter note, for those who may have read my earlier blogs, I got my offer from York University, so I just need to knuckle down for exams.
I have hope for this regimen. Most medication systems take around 6 months to show noticeable effects, even in some messageboards I've been told to wait for 6 months. So that'
Honestly? Things in my life are running so so so smooth. My skin however isn't. It's dry, it's flakey, it's spotty ALL the time.
Acne keeps reforming, though I think this was due to my Jojoba oil incorporation. I haven't taken any risks, so I'm keeping it out until my skin is clear. I will get clear. I'm sure of it.
My band recorded a song on Saturday, the quality is excellent. May even put a link up when it's released here just for promotion purposes. . My job is going swimmingly too. I'
The Jojoba oil came today, I also went out last night dispite the flaking. Had a wonderful drunk time with some old friends. Been hanging awfully today though.
On to more pressing matters, THINGS ARE CLEARING UP. Fingers crossed that this initial breakout is one of the last extremes and that things can push forward. I have one tiny active white head, everything else is starting to fade.
Jojoba oil works wonders with flakes, I literally feel like I can smile with no crumbling effect. HOWEVE
So, went out to a mates gig tonight, came home flaking, red face, inflamed spots everywhere. Really put a massive downer on my progress.
I couldn't resist picking some, but now I feel guilty about it.
I'm not going out tomorrow night if there is no improvement on my skin.
I don't really want to go to my interview either.
I just feel so held back.
Not much to say. Hope things get better during the week. If not, then my girlfriend will probably be in for a shock.
Dan's what to expect section states at the end of week 2.
"Further clearing, followed perhaps by a breakout. The breakout clears more quickly than usual. Skin is slightly less red and irritated. Red spots from old acne linger."
Great news is, I'm on week 1, my skin is less red, less irritated, clearer, flaking (expected), BUT, I have had what I would call a major breakout, quite painful spots just on my jaw line, only two are active white heads but still its a break out. To be honest I exp
Slight progress. Still flaking, still red. Acne is fading. Slight breakout but not serious. Just floating on by this week until next to be honest.
I got a new chair for my room, doesn't seem like a serious event in my life, but it's so COMFORTABLE! Perfect for playing Oblivion! .
Moisturizer isn't stinging really after applying BP either. Everything is going as planned and foretold by Dan.
So this morning I wake up with ALOT of flaking, not great for a day of school to be honest. I went in and tried to keep my face down as much as possible, even my friends noticed I was a bit off. I just said i was tired. Got home, flaking like hell!
Everything always is perfect on the wrong day though! I'm seeing Black Swan on wednesday, really, really looking forward to it. I also manged to get 2.5% BP on prescription! ALSO, I got a job interview on Friday where a couple of mates work. PERF
Suckerpunching time! I'm watching P.S I love you on TV, not going to lie, welled up at the point when she rang her husbands voicemail after he died . Made me somewhat appreciate what I had for that small amount of time. .
Well, it's day 4, just applied my BP, waiting an hour or so before I apply the moisturizer. My face goes bright red after applying it, but it does settle down to a slight tinge. My face is feeling less irritated and tight but this may just be a good day. I'm finding it hard
So yeah, this is my third day on Dan's regimen. I'm using Panoxyl Acnegel (2.5%), Nivea Oil Free Fluid Moisturizer and a simple PH friendly Cleanser.
Things are going, well, better than expected. I played a gig last night, it may have been the lighting, or lack of, but my skin looked fine. No redness and only surefire signs of a few fading spots. Coming home into a different light however did show a lot of inflammation
It's now my 3rd night on the regimen, I apply half a fingers length of
