New regimen working I think



So 2 weeks ago I took the benzaclin and diffren out of my regimen and only been washing my face with a cleanser, then glycolic 5% wash, then BP 10% wash (this I have been doing for over a month) 1-2 times daily, then useing ACV as a toner, then mixing 1-2 drops of Emu oil in a moisturizer and apply to my face (additionally at night I add a glob of emu oil over active pimples). I have been doing this for the past two weeks and I am only getting about 1-2 pimples per week (which is a deffinite improvment). I do believe the emu oil is great for spot treating as well and has flattened my pimples in about 2 days.

Also, I recently bought an at home chemical peel off ebay which is 50% glycolic acid, with kojic acide, licorice extract and one other skin lightening ingredient I can't remember that make up the other 50%. It recomended to dilute it with moisturizer if needed and leave on for 1 minute for the first week (or a minute longer if you've used glycolic acid before). So I mixed about equal parts chemicals with moisturizer, applied w/ cotton ball over the span of 1.5 min. then used cool water and a washcloth to remove it. Durring application, I started to feel a slight burning feeling, but nothing painful, and my face turned red for a few minutes after. But other than that no problems or anything, though I'm sure my skin will be peeling by tomorrow :wall:

So I do this once a week every week and hopefully my hyperpigmentation will improve! Here's hopeing :think:
