Restarting new regimen -- Here we go again

I believe my username will stick with me forever. I've had it for what, 11 years? Le sigh!

So I'm restarting the whole routine. And writing this up will keep me in check.

I went to a new derm today, Dr. Jacobs in Chicago. Seems like every derm begins w/ the basic starter kit -- retin a micro, doxycyclin (antibiotics), and a brevoxyl creamy wash for showers (bacne, chest acne).

And starting tomorrow I'm going to cut off all my kryptonites -- chocolate, soda, supersugary stuff. I do have a weakness for snapple so that's still in my daily diet.

So here's my routine:

Morning

1. MD formulations face wash for oily skin

2. Finacea

3. Makeup! Bare Minerals (can't leave w/ a naked face)

Evening

1. MD face wash

2. Finacea

2. Retin A micro

3. Doxycyclin

4. Bare Minerals' Rare minerals (I hope I can use it concurrently)

Things I'll throw in once in awhile

1. Brevoxyl creamy wash for showers

2. Aspirin face scrub

3. Broccoli pills.

... also, I might want to start up microdermabrasion .. I want to get rid of my hyperpigmentation bad!

Day 2 & 3

Day 2 I cheated and had one chocolate chip. Also, a bag of lays.

Day 3: Just Arizona Iced Tea

Cond'n: For some reason I'm breaking out on my chin, I also woke up to a new whitehead by my brow.

Day 4

I drank a lot of sugar. Stop with the sugar! I had Arizona Iced Tea and this pink lemonade.

Tomorrow's goal: no sugar

Cond'n: Chin still has a few pimples. My face also feels a little itchier. One tiny pimple on my left cheek

Day 5

I finished the Arizona Iced Tea carton and had a peachy sweet drink, as well as two chocolate pieces.

So the goal was unfulfilled.

Tomorrow's goal: no sugar

Cond'n: Chin still has a few pimples that are slowly developing. Also, a longstanding pimple at the corner of my lip keeps coming back. I think it has to do w/ the way I drink from my cup, keeps hitting that corner.
