Week...74?

I have never been happier with my skin!!! My face definitely still has it's days where it gets irritated and breaks out a little, but it is SO MINOR in comparison to what it used to be like. And when I do get a break out, it's gone within 2-3 days max! Just heals right up! Here is my current regimen: Night Wash face with Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser and Distilled Water for just a few seconds. (Overwashing can definitely be an issue! When I was younger I used to overwash A

Week 51(?)

Hello! Just wanted to check in with how I am doing, and what my routine is! Things have gotten AMAZINGLY better. After moving for college, I realized that the type of water I was constantly using directly affected my skin. I am using distilled water to wash my face now, and there has been a huge improvement. Every night: Wash face with Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser w/ a drop or two of jojoba oil. Wash very gently for just a few seconds Use a small amount of BP on active spots. Haven't ha

Week 32 - Non-Inflamed Is No Fun...

Ok, so things are alright. I am still doing well inflamed-acne wise, but not so hot in the non-inflamed department! It's spreading down my face I still love my AHA+ and am using it every night, but it's not doing as much as I was hoping it would for the bumps. I am considering treating it as fungal instead of acne. I never thought those bumps all over my forehead could be anything besides acne! But reading some posts made me think that it might not even be acne. It makes sense! It gets worse i

Week 30 (I Think?) - Aha Is A Miracle Worker!

Well I just got my acne.org AHA+ on Saturday, and I am in love. It stings my face quite a bit at first, but afterwards feels great! It has really helped clear up my non-inflamed acne, as well as red marks. I love that it exfoliates without being too harsh. I had previously read that non-inflamed acne needs to be exfoliated, but when I tried to manually exfoliate, my inflamed acne did not like that very much. AHA also really does help with the flakiness. I didn't think it would, but it did! This

Week 25

Well, things are great!!! No more inflamed acne for the most part. I get a spot every now and again. Typically along my jawline or the corners of my mouth (I hate those ones..) But I have been SO happy with regimen. It really has worked and continues to work. My only problem now is non-inflamed acne. Don't get me wrong, I would MUCH rather have the non-inflamed bumps than the gross inflamed ones. But I still don't like the little non-inflamed acnes. I don't really know what to do with the

Week 14

Things have been going pretty well! I got back from California two weeks ago, and my skin kind of freaked out from all of the climate change, and probably from 12 hour bus rides too. But this is where I am now! Cheeks have no active acne! YAY Don't worry though, there are plenty o' dark marks left over But it's ok. They will hopefully clear up soon. Jawline has a few active spots, but they seem tp clear up pretty quickly, unlike the jaw acne that used to appear on my face months ago.

Week 11 - Tea Tree Oil :)

Tea Tree Oil is that little extra step that goes a long way! Earlier this week, my face wasn't doing so hot. I was sort of clearing, but my cheeks continued to have gross spots! And I was frustrated that I kept getting more. I remembered that I stopped using tea tree oil since I got my new BP, so I put some tea tree oil mixed with a little jojoba on my persistent spots, and HOLY COW! It was like a miracle. My face is so nice now. I still have lingering red marks, but they are going away too

Week 10 - Acne.org Bp

YEAHHH! My BP came on Saturday. It rules. It goes on very nicely. Initially, my skin was kind of dull and dry all over, but now it's getting better! And most importantly, my skin is CLEARING! Here is what I have been doing daily... At night I make sure to wash all of my makeup off, I usually use a little more cleanser. Then I use about 1 1/2 pumps of BP all over. Then I use Cetaphil lotion with plenty of jojoba oil. My face is usually very shiny and oily when I go to bed at night. N

Week 9

I love Jojoba oil! It has so many benefits, like... Keeps flakiness under control. I often have no dryness or relatively little. Keeps oil under control. It's definitely a wonder how an oil can control oil, but it does! I used to have to blot and powder throughout the day, but now I am usually only using mineral finishing powder once or twice a day. Improves the texture of my face! My face doesn't look so rough, even with my few active spots. Soothes. It helps make my face not feel

Week 8 - Jojoba Oil?!

Sooo it has been rough! I broke out on my cheeks and now my chin I was upset because I have been faithfully using BP. Buuut I realized I never ramped up the dosage due to the fact that I am still using my one little bottle of proactiv BP. Acne.org is backed up, so it will take longer than expected for my new BP to come. I started using more BP this past week, and my cheeks have mostly cleared with some red spots left behing, but my chin is still suffering. It's not only suffering from sp

Week 7

Week 7! I am running out of Proactiv BP, so my mom ordered some of the acne.org BP today! Woooo! I hope that this stuff works well. Well... here is how I am doing! Forehead is pretty clear! Those two spots from last week went away quickly. I have an active spot on both temples. They aren't horrible though, Had 2 spots on my chin a few days ago. Both are gone now. My jawline is suffering a bit. Some deep acne. But it's not as bad as it has been in the past. Left cheek is good,

Week 6 Of My Regimen!

February 7, 2012 Sooo... my regimen is as follows: Wash with purity made simple Proactiv 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide Cetaphil (generic brand) gentle lotion (NOT their facial moisturizer, it burns my face badly) I have definitely seen improvement since I started using BP! I have had some ups and downs, but I think it's heading in the right direction. Some issues I have been having: Continuing to see spots along my jawline, and into my neck. Currently the ride side of my jaw is more populate
