Day 62



I'm sorry it's been almost 2 weeks since I've updated last! College and work have just made me really busy :(

Anyway, since last time I've re-ordered the cleanser and the BP for the first time (in full sized bottles). Still using the Cetaphil lotion and it seems to be a lot better than the acne.org moisturizer for me. Twice a day I apply 2 pumps of cleanser and then 2 pumps of BP (But I don't really push all the way down on either). I let it dry for 10-15 minutes and then I apply a full pump of Cetaphil, 8-10 drops of Jojoba oil, and usually 3 short lines of AHA+, but I'm moving it back down to 1 in the morning and 3 at night because even though I think it's been making my face better, I'm not sure if I should be using that much twice a day.I hate having such an intense moisturizer, but for my skin it would be impossible to just do a pump of Cetaphil and go out into the world. The dryness and flakiness is still there, and I haven't noticed too much improvement since I've been using AHA+ and more oil. I think those things make my face smoother, and the AHA+ helps the scars, but every morning I still wake up with flakes everywhere, and every time I get my face wet again it looks extremely dry until I put on my shit ton of moisturizer. Even then I'll still have to pick off some flakes throughout the day. It really sucks, because I've always been pretty insecure and now every time I'm talking to someone up close I'm afraid that I have flakes everywhere and they think I don't wash my face or something. Sometimes I'll get home from a long day and my face will look surprisingly good with only a couple of spots on the neck (yes, the flakiness is on my neck too even though I don't have acne there and it's so annoying). But other times I'll get home and look horrible.

Anyway, that's still my only complaint. It's really working and my face is basically clear now. So excited for the future and still hoping that at some point I won't have to deal with this dryness!

Congrats on the regimen working for you... The flakiness will die down with time and patience.. Just keep at it and before you know it, you'll have gorgeous clear skin you'll want to touch all day!
