Day 1 (Friday, July 22 2016)

Ight- first day complete. Nothing fancy or magical happened (obvi) but I did a lot of research on the products the dermo has given me over the years and I put together my own little routine that should help with all my problems. I also watched a lot of videos on this site and learned about how irritation causes acne- I am going to touch my skin less and let it air dry whenever possible.

Revised Skin Schedule with Notes
Morning- same old same old, wash with water and let air dry
Afternoon- (switches every other day) Neutrogena Oil Remover Astringent Toner {salicylic acid, removes dirt, oils, and makeup, and controls oil} OR Clindamycin Phosphate wipes from the dermo {these are supposed to stop the growth of bacteria that causes acne and helps with acne roseca (hyper pigmentation?) which I think I need help with}
Night- I have a bunch of different cleansers from the dermo, so I selected one that doesn't seem too harsh. The "Sodium Sulfacetamide and Sulfur" cleanser should help redness and it does not dry your face out. I will use whatever face lotion I can find around, and then once that is fully dry, I apply Tazorac to affected areas (which is basically my whole face lol).

Questions:
-Looking at my pics, is that hyper pigmentation on my temples/cheeks? 
-Has anyone used Ketoconazole Shampoo for their acne? The dermo gave me that and it is for dandruff.

Attached is what my skin looks like now... gross, right?

Anyways, thats it for today. I am going to go shopping and pick up products for my skin soon. I am willing to spend tops $100- but really though, clear skin is priceless. Any product suggestions would be appreciated!
