On this date: 12/29/2013 My skin condition is currently: Minimally oily - Normal Few pimples on forehead, moderate pimples around nose, chin, lip area Mostly blackheads around nose Skin is still sensitive, besides small papules, there are pea size cysts Skin below forehead is slightly pink
I used to use a crazy regime with AM Avene gel cleanser (nice btw but lil pricy 20$) La Roche Effaclar Duo (Seemed to be 70-80% effective, but also a bit drying) Bodyshop Seaweed lotion Skin perfecting lotion spf 15 Clinique PM [*]Avene [*]Effaclar Duo [*]Kiehls Midnight Recovery Did this for about 3 months, skin definitely had combination problem, but breakouts were minimal Wanted to go more basic instead of using so much crap, and tried Dead sea soap which was a terrible mistake. Made my cheeks incredibly rough (or caused massive amt of small pimples) And broke out my nose and chin area. Stopped after a week and switched to another recommended line - Paula's Choice Switched to using a basic cleanser Purpose, samples of PC hydralight toner, 2% BHA exfoliant, PC REsist Moisture/SPF At night I include PC's benzoyl treatment after exfoliant. Improvements are slow but apparent. Don't know if I like the feeling of my skin though, having trouble using right amt of exfoliant without getting skin sticky. Gonna stick with this for about a month and see how it goes. Might switch to Carley's Acne treatment.
