For the past 2 weeks, I have been doing this regimen:

Morning:

-Exfoliate with dial soap (triclosan for antibacterial) and baby brush method.

-Medicate with 2.5% BP.

Night:

-Exfoliate with dial soap (triclosan again) and baby brush method.

-Tone with ACV mixture (50%water, 25%ACV, 25%lemon juice) using cotton ball.

-Medicate with 2.5% or 5% BP.

I am not using a moisturizer because my skin does not need it. I have used them before, but it did not benefit my skin whatsoever. I might change the dial soap, but until I see something bad happen, its staying. This regimen has not only controlled my acne, but it has also faded red marks, softened my face, and overall reduced my acne my a significant amount. I am quite surprised. My forehead has a small flareup (mainly just red and a couple of bumps), but I'm sure it will go away in time.

So what do you all think of my regimen? Comments and help appreciated.

Sounds good.

Have you thought about adding a couple of aspirin to your ACV toner? It's really helping my skin out alot, just be sure to shake it up before you use it.

I started using the Dial Antibacterial soap years ago for the acne on my chest and back and I rarely get them there any more.

If you found something thats working for you then that's great. Congrats! Lorrie

Thanks. Perhaps triclosan can improve your acne after all. Maybe it doesnt kill P.acnes, but I'm sure it kills most of the common day to day germs that may cause problems. I am gonna stay on this regimen for a couple more months. Hopefully by then my acne will be completely gone. :D
