Regimen that could be working... but I don't know...

Well, I've been using the "Regimen" or my own version of it for the past two months. The good news is that I have less break outs. Maybe once or twice in two weeks or to that effect. But the bad news is, the marks where my pimples existed before are still there. So, the dark marks are there and they are hideous.

So, here's what I do...

When I wake up, I wash my face with my soap (Ivory) and then apply my BP ( Benzac W 5% ). After a few minutes, when it's dry, I apply a moisturizer ( Nivea Intensive Moisturizing Cream ). Before I sleep, I also do that.

I guess it is working in a sense that I have less pimples but my face is not really clearing up. The marks are still there and they are soooo obvious.

Help?

Ivory Soap! Are you mad?! wink.gif

Use something geared for your face, like Purpose, Basis, or Cetaphil. I would also consider using 2.5% bp, not 5%. Proactiv Repairing Lotion is superb.

Oh! I didn't know that Ivory is bad. Okay, I'll look into Cetaphil.

For the bp, I tried Panoxyl 2.5% before. So, I guess I'll try that once again.
