Blackheads - Yuck!

Sooo.. now I have blackheads. Which I've never had before. It's confusing, because it's like suddenly how my face looks has plummeted.. My red marks are extremely noticeable, I've lost my tan (already?!), and I'm getting all these little blackheads on my cheeks. Just my cheeks - so far... Though I suspect they are forming on my forehead as well. I worry this is due to switching to Cetaphil cleanser about 2 weeks ago. I was singing it's praises and extremely satisfied with it but now I'm no

Veteran Status - yay!

Woot! I have fulfilled the criteria for veteran status on the boards today, that makes me happy So in celebration, update for myself.. I don't remember what I talked about last time so I might be repeating myself. I have successfully integrated AHA+ into my Regimen - I use it every night now, and it has majorly cleared up my face as well as made it look radiant and smooth and soft. In the morning I still use the moisturizer, but I only need 2 pumps and 2-3 drops of jojoba oil and I'm

Addendum- calenders!

Forgot! I printed out a calender on colored paper, punched a hole at the top, attached a rubber band to which I attached a pen, folded it up and keep it in my purse at all times. Why do such a weird thing, you might say? Well I wanted to be able to see at a glance what the past 2 weeks have been like acne-wise for me. I write down when I get breakouts, when I use AHA+ as a moisturizer, when (if ever) I miss a step of the Regimen, when I picked or scratched and I knew I shouldn't have, etc.

Took me long enough, I know

I'm back, took me long enough, I know. I think tomorrow is the end of week 8, or beginning of week 8, I've lost track. Anyway I realized a few days ago I haven't been using the Regimen quite right, which is irritating to me. I was wondering why I've been suffering breakouts (and some cystic acne, which I've only gotten twice before in my entire life). Well, I did the whole wait 5 minutes between each step of the Regimen. I recently reread the steps to make sure I was doing everything r

XXIV-II

I've been reading through other people's blogs, and I can see a few people have browsed through mine, and I've noticed 2 things: 1. No one ever seems to comment on any blog, and I feel like if I start people won't know how to react to that. Imagine a surprised badger. Yeah. 2. All the blogs tend to talk about journeys. And that's something acne really does produce a sense of: a journey. Yes, you have sidequests where you focus on other parts of your body, like hair, and makeup, and nai

29 Days - 4 weeks and 1 day

So, I've been breaking out very badly and I remember hearing something about how it can take up to two weeks for acne to surface (due to irritation, etc.). So I thought about what I've done in the past two weeks to irritate my face, and truth is I've done everything to. I've rubbed it a lot when it got dry (before I realized using a little jojoba oil in the moisturizer then reapplying plain jojoba oil on my skin very lightly when dry is extremely effective), and I've picked (yes I've failed in m

Day 25 - Just checking in

Hi, Just checking in before I leave for work. I went to one of those day counter things because once the Regimen started working for me I stopped keeping track of what day it was. And it's day 25, or 3 weeks and 4 days. Awesome! I had a slight breakout this week, about Saturday, and it's cleared mostly today, Tuesday, so that's pretty good. New acne is clearing fast, and not developing much. I had a zit on Sunday which I was dying to pick, so I gave in and picked. Bad idea. It got supe

Day XI - Excessive Dryness, yuck!

I work in an office environment, so I want to blame the HVAC for the dryness of my skin, but I really think the moisturizer isn't fully doing it for me. At first I was blaming the moisturizer to the effect that it wasn't fully absorbing into my skin and it was actually the moisturizer flaking off and not my skin, but as an experiment this morning I only used 1.5 squirts instead of the recommended 3 and my skin is still just as flaky as it was when I used 3. So I still think my moisturizer is not

Day Nueve, I think

Woot, my skin is looking AWESOME. The Regimen is really starting to work for me. This weekend I bumped the BP from 2 pumps to 3 pumps (the full amount), and I think that was the last nail in my acne's coffin - it's fleeing in the other direction. Trying not to get too over confident in it but I feel super awesome The flaking sometimes gets bothersome, I'm pretty sure it's the excess moisturizer but I can't say without a doubt it is. I developed 2 new pimples so I have a total of 2 active p

Day 7

Oh it's been a bit since I've been online. I could give all sorts of excuses, I have many of them, but to sum up - I was playing video games to ignore the stress that was mounting up at work and in my personal life. And now it's all gone, whoosh! Which is very nice Except today I remain tired and wanting to return home and play Legend of Mana with my husband. So, acne related things for my records and further review at a later date- I had 2 pimples on the side of my face directly next

Day Two

I am content. I woke up this morning with some flaking around my mouth area so I will be sure to apply enough moisturizer there, and my husband said my face swelled a little bit last night - but I'm not too worried honestly. I expect some side effects for the first few weeks. I went for a walk with my husband to get my 10k+ steps in for the day, we walked approx 4.5 miles. It was really great to be out in the sun for a while - we have so little of it in Washington! Took some pictures o

Burning w/ Lotion?

Did my first installment of the Regimen.. took about 20-25 minutes, which I did not mind as I made dinner in between. It may make mornings difficult (to get ready in time for work) but if I have to wake up earlier to combat acne then so be it. The cleanser was.. interesting. I don't feel like it did much of anything, mainly because it didn't feel like my Cetaphil, but I will trust it for now... The treatment felt amazing. It was so easy to smooth on gently, and it felt really great to

Day Uno

Hello all! I could very well be talking to myself but I am okay with that, I think it will be good to document what is going on with my experience with the Regimen, even if it is only for my uses. First off! Background information! I am in my late teens but I am married (recently - last December! And it's going awesome!). I'm a religious person but will not go into that - let's just say it helps me be optimistic and balanced in life. I have a small apartment downtown and walk to work e
