Its been 13 days in benzac.. And amazingly my pimples stopped growing at their rate. My face is dry though. Especially at my neck. I have 4 pimples at the jawline area.. I put petroleum jelly so that it wont dry so much... I use petroleum jelly because i cant seem to find a moisturizer that is approved with the acne.org list of ingredients..
This is just my first aid for this problem because my acne.org regimen is still somewhere. When will they deliver it!!
Anyway as a first aid the things i choose to apply seems to work... But my dilemma now is my scars. My makeup is pretty heavy because of my scars..
I read this thread about vinegar? Have you heard of it? They even sited some sources..
This forum is amazing... Dont know how true it is but a lot of people are having a good effect on it...
Im trying it on. Hehehe..... Curiosity gets the best out of me. I used hinode vinegar just because i have it already.. I had the other option of using coconut vinegar. Its organic or something but i notice, after reading 18 pages of thread they like the apple cider vinegar or the rice vinegar.. Hinode is like another type of rice vinegar..
I dont have anything for my scars so i wanna try it.. At least i have something to prevent my pimples (benzac), and for theside effect of drying i use petroleum jelly. For my scars the vinegar.. The vinegar is a type of acid, like the sister of aha+. Hehehe..... So just trying...
Started to put petroleum jelly last night but it was only a dry run so i put it on my neck and forehead. Im having a test run observing the pros and cons before i slather it all over my face.
+ i didnt notice any breakouts
+ less dryness on my neck and face
+ petroleum jelly isnt that difficult to find
- its all over your pillow when you sleep
- when you slather it on your face it slightly rubs and may irritate your skin
- may wash your face twice because the petroleum jelly is so thick.
My acne.org regimen havent arrived yet.. I couldnt wait to start so ive Been on benzac 5% now for 10 days... The bumps on my face got flatten. I think only 3 bumps left.. But my scars are awful!
My face acne started since high school.. Then it transferred to my back... Then to my face again.
There are times when it subsides and i was really hoping that that would be it.. Enuf.. Kaputt.. But no, it still continues. The good thing is the scars on my back have lighten without me putting anything on it.
One of those times when my pimple subsided, i used this almond mask and in two weeks or so my scars really faded... Now i really want to use that mask but i saw this video in youtube that i should concentrate on the treatment before worrying on my scars.
Anyways been watching music videos and these k-pop artist have amazing skin!! Soo jealous..
Still continuing on my benzac 5% while waiting for my regimen to arrive... My face is getting dry and flaky, but not that red.. Its getting itchy too. My scar is horrible. I want it to just go away.
I got the courage to take my pic for my resume. My makeup was darn thick. Hahaha.. And victory was mine! My pimples didnt show much. Hehehehe...
Everyday still hoping that my acne would just disappear.
2nd post in the blog...
I feel better today.. One week on physiogel cleanser and benzac 5%.... I had the courage to take a pic for a job application.. But my make up was soooo thick. Hahahaha... Thank you makeup forever for making me feel better even just in my 2x2 pic.. Although someone made a comment that my makeup was too thick. I felt like i wanna goooo home instantly.... Aweful people. Crap them. Cleared skin people. Hmmm what else can we do with their darn comments.. Thanks acne.org for making me rant. Today i really feel better knowing i have people who knows how i feel... Im using an almond mask right now to fade away my scars.... Thanks ha...
