Week 25



Well, things are great!!!

No more inflamed acne for the most part. I get a spot every now and again. Typically along my jawline or the corners of my mouth (I hate those ones..) But I have been SO happy with regimen. It really has worked and continues to work.

My only problem now is non-inflamed acne. Don't get me wrong, I would MUCH rather have the non-inflamed bumps than the gross inflamed ones. But I still don't like the little non-inflamed acnes. I don't really know what to do with them, and I don't want to change my regimen too much and then have all of the inflamed acne come back. They are VERY predominant on my temples.

Here is what I have been doing lately. It's pretty much the same old routine.

  • Wash with purity by philosophy with a little bit of jojoba so as to not dry my skin out.
  • Let face dry, and then apply 1 1/2 - 2 pumps of BP
  • Let face dry, and then at night I apply Cetaphil (I use a knock-off actually) lotion with a few drops of jojoba oil. During the day I use Neutrogena oil-free moisturizer for sensitive skin.

    Some things I may want to try:

    • Using tea tree oil more often.
    • Switching my face wash from purity to Noxzema. Why? Because while I have liked using purity, it is $25 a bottle. And I am wondering if it is helping cause the non-inflamed acne. And I know that my skin likes Noxzema, and doesn't break out as a result of using it.
    • Exfoliating. Lightly.
