Onward! Day 4 Update



Day 4

So I am sitting right now with the BP 10% on my face, waiting for the 30 min to be up. On this regimen, every three days for two weeks I increase the time I leave the BP on until I wash it off. I love the way my skin feels afterwards - dry and smooth!

Every other day I put on the AHA 10%. Yesterday was my first go around with it. I got the Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel and it was nice. I followed the instructions to a T. I felt a tiny bit of stinging by my left temple (no idea why), but everywhere else it felt just like gel.

Face status: My big red lesion over my left eyebrow close to my hairline cleared up, but this morning I woke up with a big white (pustule?) slightly higher than it on my forehead - oh joy. I must admit I popped it a little until it bled. But it looks very pop-able this evening. Fighting temptation... :D

I don't get many ones like that, if ever. Related to the regimen? I have no idea...

My current line of products has changed:


Cleanser: L'oreal Pure Zone Blackhead Eliminating Scrub

Toner: Careline Gentle Cleaner

(Every other day) AHA: Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel

Moisturizer: Neutrogena Oil-Free SPF 15 Moisturizer


Makeup Remover: Garnier Naturals Clean & Fresh Cleansing Milk

Cleanser: L'oreal Pure Zoner Blackhead Eliminating Scrub

Toner: Careline Gentle Cleanser

BP: Benzac 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Cream

Moisturizer: Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

Hope this nasty zit goes away. Otherwise, I haven't noticed any change in my zits on the rest of my face. Still quite bumpy... :D

I'll post updated pics to my gallery at the end of the week to track progress.
