Day 1 of Acne Regimen

Acne Is Evil



So it is the first day of the Acne Regimen..

What my skin is like:

I have really sensitive skin and I think I am allergic to Salysic Acid because I put some of the Clean & Clear spot treatment on my pimples and left it on over night and then they got bigger... I don't think that is supposed to happen. Also I tried the Neutrogena pink grapefruit acne wash and that stung my face, dried out my skin and just killed it.

I have small pimples on my forehead and cheeks and chin, the odd big whitehead some where on my face, so many blackheads on my nose and I have Huge pores.

I have tried so many different acne products and home remedies such as the Clean & Clear advantage acne control kit, the Neutrogena pink grapefruit acne wash, Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser, a lemon and sugar home remedy, honey and cinnamon-- they all didn't work.

So I was searching on the web and found the Acne.org site, that lead me to the Regimen and now here.

I had tried this regimen before.. about a week ago then stopped for a few days because my face was really dry and abit itchy.. not as much as the salysic acid but still a little itchy. I decided to start again cause I found out that MANY people are itchy and have red skin in the beginning of the treatment.

What I am using for My Regimen is:

Clean & Clear Acne controlling cleanser (the one that is in the advantage acne kit) 2.5% BP)

Clean & Clear Persagel 5 ( 5% BP)

Aveeno daily Moisturizing lotion

I use this for the morning and at night.

I feel as though I am using to much BP because the cleanser also has alot of BP in it.

So I am going to switch cleansers and moisturizers to something a bit different.

For cleansers I would like to have:

PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Wash


Clean & Clear foaming facial Cleanser

For moisturizers I would like to have:

Cetaphil Moisturizing lotion

Maybe I will get some jojoba oil

But for now I will have to stick with what I have.

Ill keep you Posted! :)
