Day 41



Wow I can't believe it's been over 40 days on The Regimen!

Anyway I just had to write this to vent.. I know I've been really positive this whole time, but at this point I'm just getting really frustrated. I recently looked at my picture from the day I started using the products and even though there has been a difference, it still seems like I have all of the same pimples, they're just lighter. I'm also still dealing with dryness and I can't ever figure out exactly how much of everything to use. If I use too much Jojoba oil my face looks too shiny, but if I don't use enough, my face is dry all day.

Luckily, BP doesn't really effect me anymore, and so I use the full amount and everything is good. The AHA+ was good for me for a while, but over the last few days I was using a little more and I got more than a few comments like "Oh my God, your face is so red"- even though it didn't sting or feel red to me. It was just super embarrassing and it felt like everyone was staring at me, so now I'm only going to use it at night.

So yeah, so far there's been no magical results from the AHA+, and even though I use tons of BP morning and night, nothing is really an "overnight fix", even if I use a lot on the spot of one pimple.

Aside from that, the acne on my back and shoulders seems to be getting even worse (I haven't been treating it), but I don't really want to waste the products on parts of me that are covered up, because I'm starting to run low on things and I feel like my face is more important.

This is just showing me that this is going to be a very long battle.. Hopefully this is just my "frustration phase", and I'll start seeing better results soon. Crossing my fingers.
