1st post. Just some thoughts.
I've been trying the oil cleansing method for a few months but have since changed it to suit my needs and accomodate an acne scrub that I've been enjoying.
Basically I saturate my face with warm water & jojoba, rubbing it into the skin to help remove makeup. Then I mix a bit more jojoba in with my green tea scrub and massage it all in. Warm water rinse and follow with SA moisturizer and BP.
Lately I've been slathering in the BP in and it does seem to help. But I still have marks all over my face. Its like the inflammation goes down but the acne is still there. The only thing I've really been noticing is the acne is less likely to become cystic & it seems the oils can more often than not be pushed out of the inflammations, unlike before I started cleansing with oil.
I am getting tired of using BP though. And my skin is always quite dry and flakey. I feel that I look so much older than I am because of skin damage from acne, sun damage, and just getting older in general. I feel that I look horrible. Perhaps I will try to take a break from the medication and see what happens. Im worried since even now Im still getting new breakouts and who knows how bad it will be when I stop using the BP altogether.
