11 Months After Quitting The Regimen

Hey, guys.

It's been quite a long while since I last posted here, so I figured I should update you all with my progress.

After a year of being on the Regimen, I quit. The side effects were just too much and I wasn't enjoying looking older than I really was (and appearing constantly sunburnt). I quit the Regimen in January 2012 and here I am now. 11 months later. It's been very hard indeed. I broke out severely a few months after quitting. The breakout I suffered did not respond to any treatments; prescription, over the counter or natural. I think the benzoyl peroxide had damaged the balance of my skin to the point of no return. Despite my diet being impeccable, nothing could control this breakout. Now, 11 months later, here I am. Incredibly scarred and still suffering with non-stop, persistent breakouts. The only positive is that it seems as though it's slowly getting better. I do breakout often, but it's no way as bad as it used to be. I'd like to think that I'm getting there.

I'd love to hear from others who have quit BP and hear your stories. Any tips are welcomed.

And to anyone who is interested, this is the regimen I've been using for the past 6 or so months:

AM: Wash with goats milk soap, apply moisturiser (Moogoo Acne Cleansing Cream)

PM: Wash with goats milk, tone with apple cider vinegar, apply moisturiser

Additional: Bentonite clay mask 2x weekly

Supplements: Cod Liver Oil, Zinc, Vitamin C
