Day 2



It's been a LONG time since I last logged into my acne.org account. Life has changed a lot since then and so has my skin. Unfortunately, I ended up having to end accutane treatment after 60 days of use. The muscle soreness got so bad that I couldn't walk. It was scary. Acne hasn't been as bad since, but is still definitely there. So, I've decided to give The Regimen a shot. I'm on day 2 and so far... all is good. I plan to follow The Regimen to the t, minus adding vegetable glycerin to my moisturizer along with the jojoba oil. I refuse to let me skin get super dry and itchy, so hopefully this plan of action is a success. Vegetable glycerin is awesome and so far, my spots are drying and healing right up and the rest of my skin is super soft and moisturized! I've really changed my makeup routine since my accutane days and I think that is what has made a HUGE difference for me. I wear Korres primer and Clinique's foundation for acne prone skin. This combination is the best I have found after literally years of trial and error. They do not clog my pores or cause break outs. I don't think the Clinique foundation actually prevents acne, but it doesn't cause it so...

Oh yea, before I started The Regimen, I got a glycolic peel and facial and plan to continue to do so every 3 weeks from here on in. I think it gave my skin a really great foundation to start from. I am also on 100 MG of spironolactone. It wasn't until after I started taking it that my cystic acne finally stopped, which confirmed it was hormonal. So, if you are female and experiencing acne on your jawline, I couldn't recommend it more. Even without insurance, it is a fairly cheap prescription. So give it a shot and stick with it. It took 6 months before I saw results, but it was totally worth it. Regular pimples are far easier to hide with makeup than huge cysts and not to mention less painful.

I'm going to brave and post a before picture in my gallery here in a few minutes. Will try my best to keep them updated throughout the process.
