Hello again fellow acne sufferers,
Its only been 4 days since my last post, but I've had massive progress with my skin, texture wise! My bad side has quickly smoothed out and my only problem now are the dark scars. My usual better side unfortunately has just 2-3 active lesions that are on their way to drying out. I attribute the progress to switching to an Acne cleanser, as opposed to just a gentle cleanser which i was previously using.
In my last post i started using Clean & Clear's Acne Cleanser w/ 5% Benzoyl Peroxide, and its accompanying Oil-Free moisturizer. Both products are great! The cleanser is like a cream base, so it glides on and cleanses very mildly. It also gives you a very minty and refreshed feeling. The moisturizer doesn't get greasy, and is fairly mattefying; a plus for oily skin.
I will admit that despite the smoother texture of my skin, my confidence is still taking a hit from the scars. Make up does blur & cover them, but I've just realized how extremely self-conscious i've become. I just have to remind myself that I am my biggest critic, and that overall, it's improving. It can only go up from here after all.
Thanks for taking the time to read! I hope everyone else's regimen is going great and progress is reached!
