2 Year On Acne.org Regimen Update!

Surenixie

535 views

Hello everyone!!! Wow! Well it's been about two years now since I initially started on the acne.org regimen and I was just recently browsing this website looking up new ways to help reduce redness, acne scarring etc. I logged in and was skimming through my older blogs from when I first started the treatment and I realized I haven't wrote in FOREVER! I guess I have been so caught up in other things that i have neglected my blog entries! -- But then again, that must be a GOOD thing because I am longer as obsessive and worried over my skin as I used to be two years ago, which means I am actually able to enjoy my life more nowadays which is great!

Well, I guess I can start by giving a brief update of myself now... Well I am now 20 years old, I'm a 2nd year undergrad university student, and I know I said before that I was studying Linguistics but I switched over to French Studies and now hoping to become a French teacher after I finish my undergrad in four years. I won't go into too much details but that is the gist of my life at the moment.

Here is an update of my skin care routine that I am currently following (as you can see I have switched some of the products I used and implemented others):

MORNING:

- Cleanse face with Lancôme Crème Mousse Confort (Comforting Creamy Foaming Cleanser Dry Skin); dab gently to dry with face towel

- Apply 1 finger length of Acne.org Treatment (2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide) to face; allow 5-10 minutes to dry

- ***Moisturize with Vaseline Intensive Rescue Extra Strength Hypoallergenic Lotion; allow 5-10 minutes to set

- Makeup routine: Covergirl NatureLuxe Foundation applied w/ Stippling brush

*** Sometimes, I switch between using the Vaseline lotion and Pond's Dry Skin Cream. Both work well for my skin.

NIGHT:

- Shower; cleanse face with Lancôme Crème Mousse Confort (Comforting Creamy Foaming Cleanser Dry Skin); dab gently with towel

- Apply 2-3 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil to entire face; wait 5-10 minutes

- Apply 1 finger length of Acne.org Treatment (2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide) to face; allow 5-10 minutes to dry

- ***Moisturize with Vaseline Intensive Rescue Extra Strength Hypoallergenic Lotion

*** I have recently been starting to implement the Acne.org AHA+ Treatment to my nightly regimen. Although I did purchase the AHA+ a while ago, I never really used it on a consistent basis. I am trying to start to use it more regularly to improve the texture/tone of my skin and reduce hyperpigmentation/old acne marks. I will give a later update on my experience and results of using AHA+ and any personal recommendations.

I suppose I should also give an update of how my skin has been looking recently. Well this past summer I took a trip to Vietnam and stayed there for a little over a month... it was a totally different climate and I was at first a bit worried about how my skin would take it. I continued to perform the acne.org regimen while I was there and I took care to use SPF and apply it consistently to protect my skin from the strong sun rays. I also didn't wear makeup at all during my vacation time there (it's far too hot and sweaty to wear makeup routinely). I did however, experience a bad breakout on my back while I was in the country. I suspect this was due to the unbearable climate and constant perspiration. When I got back to Canada, I immediately wanted to do something about my back. I bought a back brush and started cleaning it like crazy and to date, it has gotten much better.

As for my face, it has been okay and I have managed to keep my skin clear. Unfortunately, just recently (about a month ago) I made the stupid mistake of not purchasing an extra bottle of the Acne.org Treatment before running out. I ran out of the treatment and I ordered it at the last minute when I was desperate for more BP... in doing so I had to significantly minimize the amount of BP I was using on my face every day... and while waiting for the new bottle to come in the mail, I broke out badly on my face! It was such a terrible experience for me and I felt really sad (and almost like crying at points) because I hadn't experienced so many pimples on my face in the longest time! I got breakouts on my forehead, my cheeks and a bunch on the bridge of my nose which was very discouraging. I kept telling myself that this was my own fault and that soon when BP was in the mail I'd have to start all over essentially. It was not a great experience but as soon as I got the new bottle of BP, I started from scratch to battle the active acne on my face. It has been about a month since I had this breakout and I have fought off the active acne that had resurfaced... but unfortunately I am still having to fight the redness and remains of those pimples that had formed just a while ago. In specific, my cheeks have some red marks and hyperpigmentation due to the outbreak. As a result, I have decided to start undergoing the AHA+ treatment in conjuction with the regular regimen.

I am hoping for the best but as I have heard really great things about AHA+ I am sure I will see an improvement considering I don't get any weird reactions from using the product. I will keep you updated on how this new journey of battling acne redding/scarring goes for me. Wish me all the luck!!! I will write on here maybe in a week or so (or even less!) See you soon! And best of luck to everyone who is beginning/continuing their battle with acne using Dan's Acne.org regimen! Lots of love, xoxo.
