Day 11

Day 11 of trying to control my picking

Week 9 of my duac + solodyn treatment

Today, I stop taking solodyn and start taking the generic brand (financial reasons). My derm said I have to take the generic brand on an empty stomach... but my stomach is never empty!!! ahhhhh

I picked at one spot today, but it wasn't bad. Anyways, i'm excited to say that my skin is definitely improving! I wore make up for the first time in a month and it was awesome! I had to go somewhere quickly and hell no I wasn't going out bare faced, so I threw on some BB cream. It's medium coverage so usually I need to reinforce it with concealer, but not today!!!!!!!!!! my red marks/scars blended in well with the bb cream! Yea, it wasn't perfect... In bright lights or sunlight, my skin was kinda blotchy, but in the shade it looked fine/passable. Achieving that with only one layer of bb cream proves great progress! It makes me so happy :) Thank you LORD!

Oh, and if anyone needs recommendation on good bb cream, i'd have to say the BRTC brand line. you'll have to find which one suits your skin the best, but overall, I've never had any problems with it. I've tried them all and I stick to the silver one (whitening bb? I think). The BRTC brand coverage is light to medium.

I also have dr jart's silver label. I used it when my skin was the worst because it gives medium to full coverage. But since it's soooo white and matted, it gives a caked look. And it clogged my pores a bit. :/ not too happy with that bb, but the coverage was good.

Anyways, can't wait to see the results after the full 30 days :D


Your regimen sounds awesome, I am sure your skin will continue to improve. I use benzaclin (generic) and retin-a ( generic) and amoxicillin which is the generic version of amoxil, and I rarely get even one zit after two years of consistent use of oral medications etc...
