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

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