I couldn't get on for the past few days because of my busy schedule, but I am back now! I have been faithfully using the Regimen for about 6 days now, and I am pleased with the results. My skin definitely looks a ton better! The coloring is very good! No red splotches anywhere. I feel a ton better about myself. I have more confidence. I only have a few pimples left. That HUGE one by my nose has shrunk and faded into a tiny, flat pink spot. I have 1 pimple on my right cheek and 2 small ones on my chin. I do have 2 red marks on my right cheek where it looks like the skin burnt off or something, but I am not sure. It isn't very noticeable after my skin calms down after being washed. I switched from that SLS-filled Olay cleanser to "SFC Lotion". When my dermatologist prescibed me Duac, the SFC Lotion came with it. It is a "gentle soap-free cleanser" with no SLS. It seems to work well, but it doesn't lather, which takes some getting used to. It does make my skin feel clean, though. I would recommend it.
Today was my first day of work at Delia's as a sales representative. I had to stand there and greet people as they entered the store. Thanks to Dan's advice, I didn't feel bad about my skin. I think the fish oil and zinc are also helping my skin a lot! I have also been eating a ton of apples. I have still not experienced any dryness since starting the Regimen. I think it is because my skin is used to BP, which is a good thing. Who wants to start school with big, flaky patches? I still haven't heard back from my doctor about my blood tests. I might or might not be going on birth control. I should find out by tomorrow at the latest. I will write tomorrow. Bye!
P.S. - To the lady who asked a question about which gentle cleanser to use, I would recommend Dan's cleanser or Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser.
