I'll be honest with you; Only a month has passed since blogging here, and really it takes far longer than that to deem a regimen unworthy, but I'm ready to throw some thoughts at you. Put simply, I was crazy to believe that pumping all those harsh chemicals onto my face would cure my acne, but the products I bought certainly pulled my skin out of the dark ages a.k.a. disaster breakout that recently flared up.
With the regimen I chose, I found that acne did begin to disappear with time, but what it left behind was a rage of red, inflamed skin and painful tingles and burns. Not only that, but the act of slathering multiple layers of mysterious chemical compounds upon my sensitive skin simply felt like a mistake. How could it possibly benefit my skin in the long run if it merely acted as an inflammatory crutch?
Admittedly, the products I chose were ALL recommended by dermatologist expert Paula Begoun, and therefore offered a theoretic escape from irritants and inflammation. But I'm not convinced our skin is meant to handle all this business. And I'm not convinced topical medication is the answer to acne treatment.
I think what our skin craves is peace, PURIFIED water and all natural ingredients.
But what do I know? I still have tiny clusters of resilient acne lingering around my jawline and forehead, and my journey has only just begun. I'll end my ponderings now and simply post what I've found to be beneficial to acne control and what my regimen NOW includes.
