Almost 4 months



It’s been almost 4 months now that I’ve been on 100 mg of the Spiro and about 4 weeks ago I increased to 125 mg. I think I am seeing very slow improvements with each month that goes by but I’m still getting new zits every other day or every 3 days at least. I am continuing to try to keep positive but I guess I’m still waiting for this miraculous “perfect” skin that I read about on reviews. I’m seeing a new dermatologist in two days so I am hopeful she will give me some advice and a new perspective on this whole situation with how long Spiro can take. I am still getting the zits pretty much all over my face. It’s not cystic but just annoying pesky white heads and I get blind painful ones on my chin. I seem to get a lot along my hairline as well. I get ones that are flesh colored and that I can feel but that are not very visible unless I’m in certain light that shines across my face. This is what just drives me crazy. It’s like when will they just stop coming?? Sigh! My skin care routine is as follows is anyone cares..... at night I wash my face with watered down Dr. Bonners Tea tree castile soap, I then tone with the Pixi Glow toner that has 5% glycolic acid, and then I put on either Epiduo and a Clindamycin/Benzoyl Peroxide mix every other night. The in between nights I’m using a serum that has glycolic acid in it from the same brand Pixi. I feel like both those Pixi products have helped alot especially with my black heads on my nose. I spot treat with Tarte Blemish Bully too, sometimes at night and sometimes I’ll use that during the day as well. In the mornings I only rinse my face with water and then use the Thayers witch hazel rose water toner, then I put on Paula’s Choice Salicylic acid BHA toner and then I moisturizer with Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel. This routine has seemed to be good and my skin is not dry or too flakey. I also use 3 different masks through out the week. I use the Magna Minty mask from Lush on Saturdays, the Pixi Glow Mud mask on Tuesdays, and then I use Pixi Peel and Polish now Thursday. I feel like keeping myself on this consistent schedule helps me know exactly what is working or not working for my skin. I try to post pictures tomorrow, again, for anyone who actually cares and reads my blog. Blessings to all!
