DAY 147

Hello all!! Well, I'm back.. another month has gone by too quickly and here I am again ready to give an update on my skin! Well for starters, great news.. My skin lately has been co-operating wonderfully well with me!! I am so happy with it! The dryness has lifted tremendously and my face is continuing to retain and gain a more flawless look as the days pass! I have been using Dan's Acne.org Treatment and let me tell you, it is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! I should note here, however that I have dramatically reduced the amount of BP I have been using.. after my terrible experience with over-dryness from my previous entry, I reduced the amount of BP I use back to only half a finger's length and a little extra for bedtime. My face is 90% clear now anyways (aside from small marks still slowly fading) so I realize there is not much need to go full-out on the amount of BP I use. Also, I have completely stopped using my Cetaphil SPF 15 Daily Moisturizer.. Overall, I did not like the feel of it on my skin at all.. I may test it out once again later but so far, I am much happier with my skin when I haven't been using it. To moisturize, I have continued with my Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream and it is working like magic! It moisturizes my face wonderfully.. and I use less to avoid that greasy look which ends up looking just fine with me. My daily regimen routine currently consists of:

Morning (no makeup):

Wake up, brush teeth and wash face with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Rinse.

Wait 5-10 minutes.

Apply half a finger's length of Acne.org 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide Treatment.

Wait 10-15 minutes. (Use this time to dress and fix/style hair)

Moisturize well with Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream.

Morning (with makeup):

Wake up, brush teeth and wash face with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Rinse.

Wait 5-10 minutes.

Apply half a finger's length of Acne.org 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide Treatment.

Wait 10-15 minutes. (Use this time to dress and fix/style hair)

Moisturize well with Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream.

Wait 5 minutes, allowing moisturizer to settle.

Apply L'Oreal Bare Naturale mineral makeup concealer for under-eyes and powder foundation using Kabuki brush (buffing technique). Add a little mascara and all set to go! :(

Night:

Remove any eye-makeup with eye-makeup remover/cotton pad.

Shower and wash face with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Rinse.

Wait 10-15 minutes after getting out of shower.

Apply 3-5 drops of Jojoba oil to skin and rub in.

Wait another 15-20 minutes.

Apply half a finger's length (plus a little extra) of Acne.org 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide Treatment.

DO NOT MOISTURIZE AT NIGHT.

***This regimen routine has seemed to work for me lately and I'm planning to stick with it. Also a great tip for anyone out there who wants to use or is using Jojoba oil for their skin, a great way to reserve Jojoba oil (if your bottle does not include a dropper) is to get an empty eye-dropper bottle, clean and refill it with some Jojoba oil. This way, it is conveniently small for your travel needs and you have the convenience of using a dropper instead of over-using and wasting that oh-so-expensive-and-valuable Jojoba oil!!!

Anyways, aside from that.. so far so good! I still have few small visible marks on my face from old acne but it is very unnoticeable now compared to before. I am planning on beginning to implement the brand new AHA+ bottle I ordered in earlier from Dan's site.. however, still a little scared that my skin will over-react.. but I heard good things about it and am anxious to try it out!! Perhaps in my next blog entry I will have started using AHA+ and will be able to give a personal review on my experience using it!

As always, all the best luck to those out there still struggling with their fight against acne! Don't give up, keep fighting and overcome it!!! :( Take care everyone!
