my journal using the Botchla method (with pictures)

well i did some surfing and it looks like botchla's thing is the best for me to here goes nothing [-o<

day 1] just washed my face with both products. Face feels pretty good like its getting clean and a little dry. So far can't really tell a difference. I have 3 large cysts on my chin.

You're acne is pathetically minor.

Active use of BP day and night will clear that right up. And if you want it quickly gone, and don't mind spending some more money, get yourself perscribed some Dalacin.

ok day2

i was able to sort of pop one if the cysts so one shrank in size a little i think. i played about 2 hours of hockey today so i sweated alot. go home and washed, same stingy feeling form the bp wash.

something that is really shocking me is my nose. i have had a red mark from where i had a cyst maybe? there a few weeks ago. and i felt another one forming sure enough. i was squeezing it and some pus came out so i geuss i tamed it for now. however my nose is really red now and i look like rudolph sad.gif

anyway here are my pics for day 2

good luck with the botchla routine. it's working well for me so far! i have way fewer red marks than you but TONS of blackheads on my nose. a close up picture would just be gross.

keep me posted on how it's working for you!

How is your skin after week 2? Mine has been getting a good response from this regimen as well. I also dab BP on the spots at night to help them dry up a bit faster.

I have the same problem. I have 3 pimples and a cyst on my cheeks that just do not want to go away (it's been a week) but I have to remind myself that despite that, my skin IS better than it was 3 months ago... Did you try dabing some BP on the beak out areas?

Waffles, how long have you been on this regimen? It seems like you cycle between great days and days when you're frustrated with more breakouts. I was just wondering how long you've been on it, and whether you attribute the clear days to the regimen or natural variation independent of it. By the way, I think your acne seems mild even on your "worst" days. Trust me, don't worry about meeting new people because they'll hardly notice it at all. It certainly isn't near bad enough to be the dominant feature of your face, it's minor, especially since it's concentrated in a small area rather than all over. (But I also recognize that your percerptions are probably much more critical; I probably think my acne is much worse than other people do.) Have you ever tried Dan's regimen?

I think the bp is only making your skin red is bc your skin isnt used to the bp, that your putting on too much on, that you dont moisturize enough, or that the moisturizer your using isnt good.
