Day 74



I have one active on my right cheek. A few clogged pores but other than that I am pretty clear. The PIH marks are still fading. It looks especially bad after getting out of the shower, but usually when I wake up in the morning, most of the redness is gone. Anyway, I'm really hoping that I'll be clear on Wednesday for the wedding. I can hide the PIH, but you can't hide a bump with makeup. Last night I actually took my makeup off early and watched the football game with my boyfriend. He noticed the improvement and even went so far as to claim that I look so much happier without makeup on. Ultimately it is my goal to start wearing less makeup but I'm not at that point where I'm comfortable without it yet. I'm also supposed to meet with my derm sometime in the next couple weeks. I'm sure they will notice the improvement but all I see is the post-acne marks and the fact that I am still not 100% clear. As of yet, I haven't had a day when I'm completely clear. Usually I have one active at a time. Although it's better than having 4 or 5 at time, even one is enough to bring my spirits down. I guess I still have another 2 weeks or so before I reach the 3 month mark, so I shouldn't be surprised that I'm not 100% yet. Even then though, 2 weeks doesn't seem too far away so I doubt I'll be completely clear by then either. It's an ongoing process and I really don't know when I'll finally get out of this tunnel.


Neither. I'm using Acanya gel in the morning and Atralin at night as prescribed by my dermatologist.

btw, what is your regimen? Are you on accutane or "the regimen" from Dan Kern?
