So I've decided that since I am using 2.5% BP gel anyways, I will use Dan's regimen along with the antibiotics and the supplements. I am using PanOxyl's bp aquagel which comes in 60g, it was about $10. I find that if I'm using it to Dan's recommendations (equal to half a pump), it stays very sticky on my skin. It has these little beads (of BP) that are white and take a while to disappear. I'm going to say that yesterday was day 1 of Dan's regimen. I'll see where I am in 4 weeks' time with that. So far I see a tiny bit of redness and some stinging on the skin with the BP (used it last night and this morning).
I still have those 2 period pimples on my left cheek (which WAS clearing up..red marks were fading) with one of the pimples getting larger and redder.... Argggghhhhh Hope it goes away soon. It doesn't look like a whitehead pimple that can be popped so I will leave it alone. It's just large, bumpy, and red. Easier to conceal than a whitehead pimple.
Sometimes I hate thinking about how obsessed I am with my skin. I feel like overall, it is okay, with a few pimples here and there. However my scarring makes my skin look 100x worse. I am lucky I had no real problems with it in highschool. This acne problem was my own doing back in 2006/2007 because that's the age when I started experimenting with different products like face washes and moisturizers. I think the best moisturizer I tried was Olay total effects 7...I had no oiliness whatsoever. The Neutrogena one with spf15 was pretty lame, though. After my antibiotic moisturizer is complete (I have about 1 month of use left of it in the bottle), I think I will go back to Olay or another simple yet high quality moisturizer, and use my derma e Skin lighten at night on the scars with a bit of jojoba oil.
Oh and I have to be more strict about taking the meds and supplements everyday. I eat at different times almost everyday so it's hard to stick to a schedule for that. I'll keep it on my dresser table where I won't miss it. It's usually in my dresser drawer so I forget about it some days.
