Day 2 - Breaking Out & My Current Regimen

RandomJellyBeans

Well, I hate to say it, but my right cheek isn't looking to great. I have several little active whiteheads and a blackhead--which is odd, because I never used to get blackheads. On the bright side, the left side of my face is looking much better, save one random pimple that decided to appear sometime yesterday evening.

The Neutrogena All-In-One Acne Control Facial Treatment...

...has proven quite effective at reducing the look of dark marks, but mainly the ones that are more recent. It also does a decent job of combating the actual pimples as they form and heal. I like it because it's moisturizing and it works.

Here's my current, detailed regimen:

AM

  1. Wash face gently in warm water with Neutrogena All-In-One Acne Control Daily Scrub (without actually scrubbing!)
  2. Pat dry
  3. Apply thin layer of Neutrogena Acne Stress Control 3-In-1 Hydrating Treatment all over face, focusing on problem areas
  4. Let dry
  5. Apply even layer of The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream
  6. Let dry
  7. Apply generous amount of Neutrogena Clear Skin Sunscreen (SPF 55)

Then, if I wear makeup, I just lightly swirl some mineral makeup (recently it's been the ULTA brand) all over, then put on a bit of random blush, followed by my mascara.

PM

  1. If wearing makeup, lightly remove with Equate Facial Cleansing Cloth
  2. Rinse face with warm water
  3. Wash with Neutrogena All-In-One Acne Control Daily Scrub
  4. Pat dry
  5. Apply thick layer of Neutrogena Acne Stress Control 3-In-1 Hydrating Treatment all over face, again focusing on problem areas
  6. Let dry
  7. Apply Neutrogena All-In-One Acne Control Facial Treatment on active spots and excessively dark marks, then gently massage into skin
  8. Let dry
  9. Apply generous layer of The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream
  10. Let dry

And that's everything.

I'm heading out to the beach now, and I'm armed with my SPF 55 and a new, big floppy sun hat to protect my face. I've recently started to feel very dizzy and/or lightedhead at random times, and I'm pretty sure I can thank the doxycycline for that. I'm just glad I'm not stricken with nausea.

To clearer skin!

doxycyline causes nausea. I would swith to Amoxil or Keflex.

My regimen is:

Step A. Wash face with dial antibacterial soap. Dry face with soft clean towel.

Step B. Apply pea size amounts of topical clindamycin and topical tretinoin. Wait three hours.

Step C. Wash face with dial antibacterial soap. Pat face with dry clean towel.

Step.D Apply Benzaclin. Wait three hours.Wash face with antibacterial soap or purpose gentle face cleanser,

Step E. Re-apply pea size amount of topical clindamycin and topical tretinoin. Wait three and half hours. Wash face with purpose gentle face cleanser.

Step F. Re-apply benzaclin. Wait three hours. Wash face with gentle purpose cleanser.

Step G.Re-apply topical clindamycin and sleep. Good night!

Antibiotics and spironolactone:

6:00AM take 1,000mg of cephalexin

11:00Am take 100mg of spironolactone

12:30pm take 1,000mg of cephalexin.

That's an intensive regimen! I only wish I had the opportunity to be so kind to my face, haha, but I'm always running around busy. And I haven't had any nausea yet, only some dizziness. I'll stick it out a bit longer.
