I've known about acne.org for two years, followed it for 3/4 months, started getting results, and stopped for some unknown reason! Why, why, did I not stick with it, my skin is horrible, again. I am in my late twenty's, and everyone thought my acne would go away after becoming and adult, but no, I've been suffering from acne since 12, and it has been moderate since 14. I've found out I have pcos, a female hormone imbalance, so my skin behaves maybe one week, and the other three its a nightmare.
I don't know If I stopped using the regimen because I was too busy, but I think mostly because I don't like ordering stuff online, I like to see products up close and personal when shopping, touch them, read ingredients, smell the contents, etc. but to find a good size 2.5% bp in stores is not possible, and I became frustrated! I was actually given persagel 10 (bp) back in the day from a derm when persagel was prescription, but no one told me about proper use, and no one told me about moisturizers, so after major drying, itching, flaking, after only one week I said, forget this crap, and never really tried to use bp again.
Now that I'm older, and know alot more about skin care and makeup, I'm excited to start the regimen again knowing how to keep my skin moisturized while using bp, using non comedogenic makeup/ products, etc. I really, really would love to order Dan's products, especially since there are no drugstore moisturizers that I could find that have jojoba oil, all I've found are moisturizers with glycerin and mineral oil, which yes to moisturize, but are the cheapest moisturizers a company can put into their products (more on that later I suppose). Buuuuut, for now, I would like to use up products I have before ordering, because I'm also on a bit of a budget right now.
So this is technically day three for me, and I promise, photos tomorrow! So far four really big under the skin, red cycstic types are already shrinking, and my pores are already looking clean inside. I can tell my skin is getting itchy and dry, so I've been moisturizing more than normally. So far, no flakes yet. Here are the products I'm trying to use up, and they will have to do until I can order the acne.org products, can't wait!
Clean and clear foaming facial cleanser for sensitive skin
Clean and clear persagel 10, diluted with moisturizer of course
Clean and clear finishes mattifying moisturizer, spf 15
Facial spray (water and glycerin, similar to mac fix plus) for extra moisture when needed
Clean and clear foaming cleanser
Persagel 10, diluted with moisturizer
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion, Night
Vitamin E oil for extra moisture
I don't really love using the glycerin or vit e oil, but my skin is pretty dry already, I have a lot on hand, and they are good moisturizers, but I really am going to switch this up later on for jojoba oil, because of all its good properties, and it also contains antioxidants. So posting photos tomorrow, with no makeup and with!
