Waddup! Things are still going great on the regimen! Not too much has changed since last week.
I only got one active pimple this whole week and I noticed it yesterday. It was so hard to notice because it's under my chin. Weird! Anyway, still breaking out a little in my back, but still an improvement from 2 weeks ago when it was overflowing with large, painful and itchy whiteheads. Gorgeous! I think my hormonal cycle has the most to do with that. I only use dans cleanser on my back usually when
So I'm attaching a pic in some different lighting than my sexy bathroom.
Don't let the mood lighting and wet hair fool you. I am an acne sufferer! Regardless of the shitty photo, rest assured the regimen and Trinessa are still working their magic. I'm being an acne soldier and am disciplined as hell with it. That's why my progress has stuck!
Hopeful that I'm not jinxing myself
The 2 month mark is here! 8 weeks! This is a crucial milestone, people. A crossroad of sorts.
This is the time I told myself I'd evaluate my progress and decide if I should continue... Well? What do you guys think? Is it worth sticking it out another month? Another 2 months? Forever?!?
Same old same old me here, everybody. Still SO happy w my progress. Did get a few small zits here and there. But SMALL and FEW are the key words here. Never did I think I'd describe my acne that way! Woo hoo for small victories!
Although I still have some dark leftover marks and one or 2 active pimples, I seriously am so happy I gave the regimen a chance.
And to think of all the stuff I've been trying the last year!
However, I'm keeping in mind the many factors involved here, and any of the
So that primer/bb cream disaster that happened last week showed its true colors this week. And those colors were RED AND WHITE. you know those lovely colors when they erupt on your face. It was not cute, boo boo.
It all was concentrated on one side of my chin, as you can see from the pic (keep in mind, this is me w eye makeup and some concealer on. Not the normal sexy clean face bathroom shot rawr)
Things have calmed down significantly since Sunday/Monday this week. Now it's Thursday and the
SOOOooo I mentioned last week that I wanted to try a primer/bb cream, yea? Yea, no... Bad idea.
For only 2 days last week I tried the Smashbox primer light. It made my face dry as a dinosoar's ass.
Needless to say, I live in the desert and it's over 100 degrees daily right now. PLUS the water in Vegas is super hard and terrible for dry, sensitive skin, like MINE OF COURSE LOLOLOL.
So only 2 days of this stuff definitely made me break out. I went back to just my regimen and things are improv
Hey kids. So I just finished week 3/started week 4. And I'm still pretty pleased w the results of the regimen!
As a reminder I'm using 1/3 fingers length of bp twice a day, with dans cleanser and Cerave moisturizer twice a day too. I also just started my 3rd month
of the bc pill Trinessa...
I try and wear as little makeup as possible. Some Clinique concealer under the eyes and on any zits usually makes me half presentable for a day at work. But I'd like to start trying maybe adding a primer
Thought y'all might want to see a selfie w makeup and such.
This was me on my way to my lunch break last week.
Proof that you can have acne and still be a kick ass human being! Girl power! (Insert British spice girls accent)
What a difference this regimen tweak has made!
After the Hiroshima that happened on my chin last week, the dryness and breakouts were only getting angrier. True I thought it was the sunscreen, or my diet... But looking more at the ingredients of Dans moisturizer and the reviews on this site, I started to ponder that maybe my skin just isn't a fan of licorice or oil...? And all in all, this yellow moisturizer just wasn't cutting it in the whole "moisture" department. Even layer after layer, My
WELLL here's 1 solid week in.
I'll go into some detail as to exactly what I did this week, since it seems like that's what people like on here. Ya gotta give the people what they want! Lol ok anyway:
Morning: cleanser (10 seconds, good frothy lather mmm) 1/3 finger's length BP 2.5% applied gently, 1 pump moisturizer
Evening: same as morning!
After the first few days, I saw some great improvement... My skin felt tight, but I wasn't seeing any flakes yet... Breakouts/redness/oiliness wer
Waddup acne peeps.
SOOO This is where I started when I began Dan's Regimen.
This blog is as much for me as anything, as this is the first time I've officially documented progress with any product. If people read it, grewl, if not, fine, at least I can see my progression after some time and actually see how far (or not far!) I've come...
As you can see, most of my breakouts are around my chin/jaw and a tiny bit on my forehead lately.
I know my acne isn't severe, but this is actu
Isn't that what we tell all the dermatologists who we see, now? "Sooo, it all started when..." blah blah blah.
So my story sounds a lot like what I've already heard so many times on this site.
I'm 25, female, and have battled acne on and off since middle school.
In high school, proactiv controlled it somewhat so that it was manageable. But my freshman year in college my periods went crazy, I got ovarian cysts, and my skin opened up a can of whop ass on me. Proactiv was no match for th
