Clearasil to the rescue!



So to catch you all up to my skin life. I quit the dermatologist. The antibiotics definitely helped clear my super annoying cystic acne. But the duac never worked well for me (finally I realized BP is not my friend) and the Tazorac worked EXTREMELY slowly and sometimes not at all in terms of clearing up scars. I then started using proactiv mask to spot treat and cortisone cream on my forehead where I get tiny itchy bumps and it worked.

This is my current regimen:


wash with Dove soap

moisturize with cetaphil for people with eczema

spot treat with clearasil adult spot treatment (Sulfur) if I have a really bad blemish


wash with Dove soap

moisturize with clearasil overnight lotion (salicylic acid)

spot treat with clearasil adult spot treatment

If any place on my face itches I use cortisone on that part.

1-2x a week I exfoliate with st. ives apricot scrub (salicylic acid) and surprisingly it doesn't irritate me

1x a week I do a benzonite clay mask (I should do this more often but I just don't)

I LOVE this current regimen, it's easy, I love the products, I love how they smell and feel, I love the consistency I see in my skin. I thank God that I finally found something that works and I pray you all find the same.
