so i know i keep updating, but it helps.
so i think the problem was that i wasnt being gentle enough when applying everything and washing.
I have really seen a difference just by barely touching my face when i was and apply bp and lotion.
A lot of the pimples on my cheeks are gone, and the whiteheads are already going down. My face looks a lot less red and a lot less flakiness.
I have regained hope.
BEING GENTLE IS THE KEY!
