Still Trucking... Back Remains Clear For Several Weeks, Small Chest Breakout, Face Is Hormonal.



Sorry for the long, convoluted title.

My back is still clear. I'm super happy. The marks are fading and nothing new is forming, which is helping them fade. When I wash my back and it feels like smooth, normal skin, it makes me wish it were warmer so I could wear strapless shirts again.

I have one blemish on my chest now, but I've been using the 12-hour AcneFree BP foam and it's going away. Everything else on my body is being nicely maintained by the routine I've fallen into.

I just wash in the morning (and at night on days I work out) with St. Ives Green Tea Body Wash, with a shower poof. After I pat dry, I use Paula's Choice 2% BHA Weightless Body Treatment Lotion on my chest and back. It's kept everything at bay, except the one blemish on my chest. Treating that with BP seems to be working.

So, BP = treating existing acne. BHA (salicylic acid - in the body wash and the lotion) keeps it from coming back.

I have PMS, though, so my face is breaking out. I finally broke down and bought the AcneFree System - the whole thing - for my face. I guess I'll see how it goes. This whole adult acne business sucks.
