My First Month On The Regimen

Lefm1

320 views

Well, time definitely flies. It's been one month since I've started the Regimen, but it only feels like I've been using it for a week. In the beginning, I saw my acne clear up fairly quickly, but developed a bad dryness problem. That dryness led to some embarrassing flakiness, but by using some new products like jojoba oil and AHA, the dryness has significantly decreased, and I have virtually no flakes. At this point, my skin is pretty clear, but I still have some work to do. My goal is to get rid of the acne scars on my cheeks, which are slowly fading, but nowhere near where I want them to be. I hope that with continued use of the Regimen, I'll get the results I hoped for before I started.

I think that tretinoin helps with scars and discolorations. That is my strictly non-scientific observation based on my own experience. No clinical trials were performed. With my own skin, the tretinoin that I use daily helps dissolve smaller whiteheads and helps slough off discolored dead skin cells keeping my pores clean. I also use benzoyl peroxide and I think that bp is in integral part of any good regimen. In that sense the "Regimen" is a good thing. Although I am huge proponent of antibiotics since they transformed my face completely. I went from cysts and whiteheads the size of peas (huge in face zone) to smooth sailing. I love washing my face because all the bumpiness is over. My skin is sooo smooth.
