Lately i've been reintroducing some products into my regimen. I've been using paula's choice betaine salicylic acid, skin balancing moiturizer and skin balancing cleanser. And I think it's doing a good job smoothing out my skin. Especially the bha is doing wonders for me. But it doesn't mean the water regimen did anything for me. It definitely helped with my overly oily skin. But I did hit a plateau and that's why i stopped. So i would recommend a gentle cleanser with bha and a good moiturizer.
It's been a while since my last post. Now it has been 3 months since i've started my water regimen. Between my absence from this blog, i went to the derm. Because of my minor dermititis on my face(pre water regimen). And got prescribed pills for allergic reactions for my dermititis and a lotion. He suggested I use it for dead skin on my face. The first time I used it, dead skin was sticking on my fingers and just made a mess. But I kept through it and now my dead skin problem i s gone!! So i sug
Few days ago i had a huge one on my right cheek near my nose. Pretty deep,, but it wasn't a cyst. Im waiting for it to heal. Im getting three to four more white heads on my cheeks. But it doesn't hurt, it's just messing with my head. But trying keep positive. Also have two three small to medium ones on my forehead. I wipe my face with water and washcloth because of the dead skin buildup on my face. After that put some lotion on. From what i've heard it takes about three months for it to get bett
It Is now the 45th day of the water regimen. And I've noticed a big difference since I started the regimen. Here are the differences I've noticed since then. 1. Less oil production(takes some time for it to work) 2. Less inflamation 3. Less pimples 4. Pimples heal faster 5. Cystic pimples are very rare 6. Dry and dead skin patches 7. Rougher looking skin(I heard that the regimen will take care of this problem if you stick with for about 3 months)
It is my 20th day on the water regimen. And my skin is improving every day. My skin gets flaky at times but thats the least of my worries. Oil production seems to decrease by little. There is a bump on my forehead but it's not that major. Nothing else to talk about...so thats it.
It's my tenth day of the water regimen. And my face is producing less and less oil by a small amount everyday. I have one pimple popping up on my chin but the pimples I get while on a water regimen are less irritated and they seem to heal better than when I used a cleanser. Spots are fading very slowly but I can notice the difference. Other than that,, nothing new.
Okay, so Im starting to think that this the best I did for my skin because when I woke up today It was not oily!! Im usually dripping in oil when I wake up but now its the complete opposite. Also the tone of my face greatly increased. I think you should start doing this. But Im not getting too excited because some people just start breaking out on their second week..so Im going to suppress my excitement.
It's my sixth day on water only regimen and I think I can feel it working now. My face is less oily. But My blackhead increased. And the purging stages is stil going. But nothing noticeably bad is happening. And a new pimple is starting to appear. Its on my chin and I can feel a slight pain when Im touching it. So Im going to ice the spot and pray to the acne gods that it doesn't get bad. And I can kind of see my face looks dirty.
Just woke up to check how my face was doing. And it is still doing fine!! I thought i was going to purge badly because I started to get a pimple right under my nose which is the type of pimple I hate the most. And under my chin(thank god it is not noticeable). I know I shouldn't have done it but I poped one under my nose yesterday. It is healing nicely without a scar or discoloration. It seems like the pimples I get while doing this regimen doesn't hurt or get red that much. But my face is still
I had acne when i was 16 and was prescribed clindamycin and an enzyme powder cleanser. They cleared my face in a month. Back then I thought I never I'd have to worry about acne anymore. But then few months ago they started coming back rapidly and worse than ever. So I started to figure out what was causing it since I ate relatively healthy and worked almost everyday. And now I think what the cause was. It was because I was trying keep oil off my face by frequently washing face which was going on
