Week 1 + 2 On The Regimen



Hi All,

I am creating this blog so that I can share my experience on the regimen with everybody as well as keeping track on the progress myself.

Lets start with a little background to my skin. I have very oily, acne prone, sensitive and large pored skin. I have been battling with my acne for nearly a decade now, I have just turned 23 and I am desperate to clear my skin up. My problem areas are my cheeks and my jaw line mostly. The blemishes I get on my cheeks are the worst, they are large and under the skin. They never come to a head and are sore and painful. I cannot cover them with any type of foundation and if I apply bronzer or blush over the affected area, it looks absolutely horrible.

I have tried everything out there, from Proactive to Clean and Clear to Clinique, to various birth controls. The Acne.org regimen is really my last resolution, and after having heard the amazing success stories I really hope this will work for me too. Lets start with the weekly progress:

Week 1

  • Started with small amount of BP and applied it only at night
  • Not too much drying
  • The first 2/3 days were not bad at all
  • Towards the end of the first week, at least 5 big pimples formed, the cystic type but came to a head so I popped them.
  • Also towards the end of the first week face started to feel quite dry around my chin and very itchy.
  • I do not like the jojoba oil, it does not help with dry skin and feels incredibly oily and greasy. It only sits on top of the skin and does not seem to get absorbed.

    Week 2

    • ​Skin now feels quite dry, but I apply 2 pumps of the moisturizer. First I use one pump, glide it on the skin and wait for it to absorb before I start with the second application.
    • More big pimples are forming, some of them come to a head
    • Skin is looking dry and applying foundation with a brush is difficult and I am now using the beauty blender which gives me more hydration when I apply the foundation. Coverage is not as high but skin feels better.
    • Black heads from my nose are nearly gone, I never experienced this before.
    • Slight redness down the bridge of my nose
    • Now using just under half a finger worth of BP in the morning and in the evening.
