Mission Statement!

kuropanda

292 views

First I would like to introduce myself as kuropanda and I'm a rising sophomore at a very stressful University. Last year (2010) at around this time I started to suffer from moderate, chronic acne as a result of stress from the transition from high school to university. Through most of the 2010-2011 academic year I had at least one blemish on my face :naughty: . Additionally the drastic change in diet really did a number on my skin my skin and energy level (college food is possibly lower on the ladder than fast foods).

However since finally going to a dermatologist back in May (2011), I have more or less successfully cleared my skin. I recently ended my 2 month stint on antibiotics (minocyclin) and I'm hoping to continue good results. My current daily regimen-

Morning:

Murad Clarifying Cleanser

Duac (prescription topical cream)

Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion

Murad Oil Control Mattifier SPF 15

Clinique all about eyes

Boscia BB Cream

Evening:

Murad Clarifying Cleanser

Differin (prescription topical gel)

Once of twice a week I do a green clay mask made of:

-french green clay

-3 uncoated aspirin

-aloe vera, water, lemon juice or facial toner (anything at hand to dissolve aspirin in)

-manuka oil

-honey

I also use a Clarisonic Mia with sensitive facial brush. When I do get a pimple, they are very very small, un-inflamed white heads that clear up within two days. The major problem I have now is the dark spots (scars?) that were left behind by the acne. Though this is a vast improvement from what I had started with, I'm searching for something that will help take care of this hyperpigmentation without interfering with my presciptions. In the past I had used a night gel containing hydroquinone, which did little to nothing for me. For this reason I'm looking for a good facial peel that I don't need to use more than twice a week. Two weeks ago I started using a sample of REN glycolactic peel. The sample tube has a lot of product in it, so I will hopefully see some good results before it runs out :wacko: .

If you have any peel or dark spot treatment suggestions, I would love to know about them!
