First day of regimen!



I recieved my package in the mail today with my order of the acne.org kit. Just applied it before getting ready for bed. I have moderate acne on my face, mostly inflamed, combination skin.

Current status of skin is:

-Approx. 7 active blemishes

-Approx. 15 post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks

-Overall dull and uneven skin tone

I was using pro active up until now, it stopped working after three months so I knew it was time to take a different approach. I'm also on a 100mg dosage of spironolactone, which has made my skin less oily but hasn't done much as far as breakouts are concerned. I started mid December at 50mg.

I'm also treating my non-inflammed acne on my back with freshly squeezed lemon juice, it seems to be fading the hyperpigmented marks slowly, not any noticeable active blemishes at this point although it's hard to tell since they're usually non-inflamed. If I discover any new outbreaks I'm going to try applying rice vinegar topically instead.

Current things to work on:

-stop picking at skin

-avoid caffiene

-resist urge to exfoliate (I'm an avid over-exfoliator)

-persist with the regimen even if I feel like copping out.

-try to eat healthier even though resources are limited right now

Will be using this as a weekly track of progress.

Hopefully this works!
