I have to say I am finding it really hard to plan my meals around the pills....or my pills around the meals....whatever! I also feel hungry yet strangely have a loss of appetite.

I started on a probiotic also, just for a month, maybe two.

No new breakouts in almost 10 days of starting the doxy, and about 2 weeks since that makeup breakout. I did notice some kind of closed comedone...milia? maybe...on my chin and tried squeezing them a bit which resulted in a red bump, that I then popped...BUT! The Polysporin has helped them out a lot, besides a red mark they're not noticable. They are quickly healing :rolleyes: The makeup breakout marks are also healing, there is just one left with a bumpy texture to my skin.

Overall, my skin is looking fine right now besides the red spots.

I think, though, that I am soon going to start using the oil cleansing method. Less products are better for my skin (and my wallet). I also like oil because it removes makeup and I won't have to buy another eye/makeup remover just for that. Researching about that right now and I am not sure which combination would be best. I want to try emu oil but it's like $27 at the health food store and the bottle isn't all that big (no more than 100-125 mL). If I create a really cheap oil blend (like $10-20) that works well I'll stick with it, otherwise I'll buy an oil cleanser from Sephora (anywhere from $18-35). But again, I've got to be patient about that. I don't want to lose any of the progress I've made.

good to know that you're slowly healing now. just don't concentrate on the oil treatment. it migh cause your acne to come back. find products with oil control.
