I know there are several places that say coffee is bad for acne. I say it tastes good and gets my day started and there are plenty of people without acne who drink it so oh well. I like vienna with almond creamer and 1 teaspoon of sugar. yummy!
Any way it's been 3 days since i started the reginmen. So far i have done all the steps exactly like whats on the printout list (which i taped up on my b-room mirror). I have had no redness, no peeling but my skin does look a little clearer, with no new zits popping up since i started the treatment which is a miracle because i usually get 1 new one a day! My husand says my face is a little "pinker" then usual but i dont really see it... wishful thinking .
So the hardest parts of the regimen have been this:
1. i always shower at night. it's been my ritual for years, it helps me relax. also at my job i work around a bunch of chemicals so i have to shower when i get home/at night or risk bringing all that yucky into my bed. i reversed dans "shower in the morning, wash at night" guess that means i'm already not following the regimen exactly but it's just not sanitary to get covered in goverment grade hydaulic fluid and grease then come home and get in bed like that. (i'm an aircraft mechanic.)
2.3 pumps of moisterizer being "glided on" in 2 min. is just not going to happen. seriously 3 pumps is enough to moisterize well alot. i just cant get it all "on" in 2 min. i end up with big globs of moisterizer on my face and hands and letting it dry like that is... well lets just say it doesnt work. 2 pumps is just right for my face and neck, about a quarter size (3 pumps is like a half dollar idc what the instructions say)
3. not picking is SO HARD!!! i'm doing it but it is killing me. i currently have 3 whiteheads on my face and i'm going to walk around all day like that.
but for all the complaints i have, it's actually going well so far, it's only been 3 days and i already have way less actual pimples. I have pic.s but i'll put them up later.
i'm going to start using my bp 2 times a day, still a phlange size amount (from the last crease of my finger to the tip).
i'll let you all know how it's going.
