Sorry this is a really late update; acne.org wasn't letting me post anything, but now it's fixed.
No one reads this anyway, lol.
So, right. Update.
My face is still improving. My problem areas are still... eh. My chin, being the worst, is I guess getting a little better? It's hard to tell. But un-active pustules have turned into whiteheads and are cleansing themselves out, so we'll see tomorrow if anything helped. My right cheek, which is the one that cleared up after only one night! is still great. I still have little bumps, not nessasarily acne, I don't think, but they are flesh colored, not active, not painful or irratating in any way, so maybe they're just part of my skin. Anywho, that area is awesome.
Now, the left cheek. I still have a small patch with one whitehead (which I drained today. Cleansed it very well.) and a patch of redness surrounding it. Not horrible, but still annoying. Otherwise, that's it. I still have small "red marks" from previous acne, but they will eventually fade with time.
My forehead, I would say, is still improving. I think I have "follicultis" from what I've read and what not. I think that's what I have on my forehead. So, the "acne" there has gotten smaller and less red due to the Cetaphil cleanser. It's def. better than it was before Cetaphil.
My skin seems a whole lot better in the morning when I wake up. I'm podering whether or not I should just cleanse at night, and then just splash some water on my face in the morning. But the fact that I have oily skin, that might not be a good idea. :/
If you're wondering what my regimen has been lately, here it is!
1. Wash with Cetaphil facial cleanser. ONLY USE MY HANDS TO WASH. NO WASHCLOTH.
2. Also rinse with my hands.
3. LIGHTLY pat dry, or on some occasions, air-dry.
4. Apply Nivea's Total Moisture Conditioning lotion.
1. Wash again with Cetaphil. Same routine.
2. Apply Tea-Tree Oil with a Q-tip to problem areas. SPOT TREATMENT.
3. Let oil dry for a few moments.
4. Apply a small amount of BP 10% to problem areas. SPOT TREATMENT.
5. Let dry for a few moments, then apply Nivea's moisturizer.
And that's it. (:
Update soon. Maybe pictures to show the improvement.
