I've been on the Regimen for about two months now and am wondering when improvements in my skin will start! Currently I'm:

* Cleansing gently twice a day with Cetaphil Cleanser for Oily Skin

* Using the full amount of Benzoyl Peroxide in the evening and a smaller amount in the morning (using the full amount twice a day really dried out my skin and made it itchy)

* Moisturising with Cetaphil Moisturing Lotion

* Taking zinc supplements

* Taking an oral contraceptive pill that is supposed to help with acne (Brenda 35 ED)

* Reducing the amount of makeup I'm wearing and ensuring that the makeup I do use is non-poor clogging and oil free

* Avoiding touching my face at all.

I've noticed the general texture of my skin improve in the areas where I don't have acne. However, there are a number of persistent red pimples that won't go away and I do still get new ones.

Can anyone spot anything I'm doing wrong or could be doing better?

Thanks in advance,

Maggie.

are you exfoliating?.....cuz i pretty much had the same regimen as you and i kept on getting persistant pimples and so then i used baking soda with my cleanser and that cleared it up.....cuz the dead skin could be clogging your pores. but i also stopped using BP after a certain period of time cuz i found i didnt need it anymore

I haven't been exfoliating as I've read that that just aggravates acne. However, I have tried the baking soda tonight so I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks for your advice.
