My day to day log.

Recommended Posts

Yes i decided to make a lil log . because my acne is moderate to sevier depending on the day, i get from black heads to cysts to white heads to under skin hard lumps, huge white heads, huge cysts little cysts, lol i get them all and have em all.

my acne had been gettin wayyy worse so i decided to try the Clean&Clear Advantage Acne Control Kit. with my tretinoin cream at night after the mosturizer.

Ive been on the regimen for little over a week and it is seeming to work...well atleast I CAN tell it is working, i still get people that stare and a lil kid that everytime i c him he says ewww bummpy face lol. hes a funny lil dude cause me n ma friends knew him since he was like 3 n he like 7 now or sumtin.

Im still thinkng weather or not i should post pics becasuse i dont want everyone seeing who i am or sum1 i kno somehow c my pics from the site, lol so i don no

__________________________________

little over a Week in- Not realy no acne flare ups, all white heads are gone, all my bumps that have no heads are going down. blackheads are still hear, still have ALOT of red splotches on my face that people think are acne but its not acne its an acne scar.

So over all the kit is working it stoped all new acne from poping up its just taking some time to get rid of the acne i have now that has been on my face since i started the regimen.

but everytime i wake up i have a white head or 2 but i just pop em with a needle and wash my face with the stuff and u cant even tell i had the white head

i think i jinxd my self , i was clearing up then i woke up with a big huge hard under the skin pimple thats raised a little i was sunt. everything else is clearing but then this came out of no where. hopefully it will go away fast.

but a lil update-** everything is clearing slowley no new pimples except for the one i just mentioned, still have the red marks all over my face which makes it look worse than it is

does anyone have any tips how to start making them fade while im on this regimen and wont clog my pores or nothing.---------------

i also started drinking Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey , i heard it has natural anti-oxidens and will help with acne, i dont kno kno if thats true but it tastes good anyways if it dont help acne lol

You could just post your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin. Close ups. No eyes. Isn't it weird that we won't really know who you are if you don't show your eyes? Freaky. Anyways, my acne is just likes yours. Clear to spastic. WTF? I hope your new regimen works for you. I really do.

Just wanted to comment on your regimen. I noticed that you are using both a BP wash and Retin-A at the same time in your evening regimen. You are not supposed to use these two medications at the same time of day - the BP neutralizes the effects of the retin-a. Although a wash might not have as strong of an effect on this as a leave on product would, it still may be interferring with the Retin-A effectiveness. It is fine to use one in the morning and one in the evening though (so you could use the BP cleanser in the morning and the retin-a at night). You might want to find another non-medicated cleanser for the evening.

Be careful of not over-irritating your skin. You are using a lot of drying products (BP wash, salicylic acid and retin-a), which may dry and irritate your skin. If your skin is getting to irritated, dry, or red you might back off the products a bit (like reducing the salicylic to every other day)

Oh i didnt kno that, it hasent seemed to interfer i dont think, and my face isent drying out at all im susprized actualy

because on my other regimen my face would be so dry and flakey id have to use ALOT of lotion/mosturizer

with this regimen my face isent realy dry at all its nice and soft and smooth after i wash and i apply the mostuirzer in the areas needed...

the salylic acid in the spot treatment dont realy dry me out either, it dont realy work much for my face i put it on lil white heads and thell dissipaer in a day but other than a tiny white head the spot treatment dont do a whole lot for me .|

___

i dont apply much retion a just a little dab on only the acne spots and i rub it in.

But thanks for your concern Willow i didnt kno that, if my face starts drying out and gettin iertated and stuff ill kno whats wrong and what to do. Thanks :wavey:

are you shure?

because my last regimen was gave to me by my doctor

Benzaclin (bp and some other ingredients in it)

and Tretinion Cream

and to wash noxzema

and that worked good for a month or 2 then it stoped working gradualy cause i think my face got used to the products

and the nights i use the tretinion (off brand type of retion a) it seems to help the acne spots become lighter and helps them go down, the days i dont use the tretinion the acne usualy gets more inflamed and grows bigger lol.

___

maybe since the bp is in the wash it dont mess up the retion a , i dont kno it could be any reason but with the tretinion it seeming to be working right now i dont kno.

with insurance i payed 5 dolars for it , its a pretty big tube and i just use a little anyways so if its not even doing anything then im not loosing much. its still 75% full and i have had it for a couple months.

but what your saying sounds intresting, im wondeering how does it make the retion a non effective? dont they both get absorbed into the skin and do what there susposed to?

PS. pics are in this post i have them as a clickable link tho in with each paragraph

:redface: Well i think my face is getting worse, Start week3

The cheek that was clear and was getting the pimple on the upper back part of my cheek under my eye near my hair line

Well i guess its called a nodule or what ever, it HUGE its under the skin NO head nothing its just a HUGE lump in my skin , no lie its over an inch in diameter no lie. Looks nothing but its huge in life lol, over an inch wide and it sticks out

My nose im getting a cyst on the side of it , (Again lol) its getting a tiny bit biggerIts stayin some what small

The one under my lip in the corner, its huge and its all red but no head to it, and its been getting a little dry cause its under my lip( i lick ma lips n corners of ma lip where its kinda at so my saliva is drying it out) Lip, hard to see cause of lighting

My otehr cheek is getting 2 nodules,neither is that big pry half inch or lil smaller in diameter. 2 noduels

Forehead well i have small black heads right above inbetween my eyes, and i try squeezing them (shouldent i kno because thats how my nose gets cysts the blachead gets infected) well a blackhead turend into a whitehead and i i poped it (shouident but habit i cant break) Forehead

___

so over all i dont kno my face was clearing up then the past 2 3 days i say my face has been getting noduels and cysts, i hate them because one will go away and another will pop up RIGHT WHEN the other is gone. why does that happen stuf clears up then bam it hits soon as the previous acne is gone.

ps. if those arent noduels what are thay, my school nurse said that my acne is pretty sevier that i should look into low doses of acutane (my face is pretty bad its just the camera phone)

she said the lumps i have on my cheeks are noduels (might spelled wrong) and my nose is a cyst and my lip one she cant tell she thought it was a cold sore but its not cause i had priked it and some puss came out.... and my bestfriend we consider eachother brothers said i need to stop drinking milk that thats why im always broke out, i never thought of that beccause i drink milk every day like a couple glases usualy. so cause of that ill stop drinkin milk and keep drinkin green tea and water (arizona green tea with honey and ginsing u people gota try i think its the best) lol. i write 2much dont i :shifty:

well this was a shoker to me no lie

i was working out which i havent done in a while (couple months) and i got hot n took my shirt off, and started doing pushups, then out of no where my back started stinging like sum one pourd alchol on a open sore.

so i looked at my back in my bathroom mirror and i was shocked! my back as ALL broke out it looks nasty

and on the back of my shouilders i have red marks everywhere like i have had acne on my back for a while, i never knew i had acne on my back cause i didnt have it a while ago.

but i have white heads everywhere on my back and scars and stuff, i have been noticing pimples on my upper arms and stuff but i never expected to get them on my back. i have also been gettin them under my chin between my chin and throat what ever that area is called, ive been gettin white heads there.

i don no whats going on because i havend done nothing differnt in my life style i dnt think, except this week i started eating lunch at school which i havent ate lunch in a LONG time. i also have been drinkin a Arizona Green Tea with ginseng and honey, or ginseng and apple juice since last thursday i think everyday sometims 2 a day

well my the tretinion is drying me out some what but not much, its helping more than drying

ive been putin tretinion on all my red marks and the bumps and i wake up and there is a head on the spots i put tretinion and i pop them with a needel and wash with the wash.

the tretinion seems to bring pimples without heads to heads, it also lessens some of my redness, but the acne is still real real red, i got commented from my friend sayin are you nervous or something cause ur red (but i kno hes meaning my acne being red which takes up my whole face) , and another kid i kno he riff (make fun of everyone) and im cool with him n i make fun of him to cause he juss is ugly lol. he was like shut up dick with herpes ., i was like NUAA UA u would never, but i called him a hamer head cause of his funny shaped head.

Acne update tho.

forehead 2 bumps on side are gone just scar, but i got 2 more in the middle of my fore head lol.

cheeks : left cheek; no acne just red marks everywhere

right cheek; got open pores under my eyebone, and i just squeeze them to get the white head stuff out the open poor, but i got under skin bumps which are red but not raised too

chin,, tretinion clearing up the spots, still got bumps which i think nothings in them but i dont want to touch them cause they might get inflamed again.

nose cycts on my nose none, just scars, next to my nose on my cheek i had a cyst/noduel but its just a big skin scab now, the scab isent raised or nothing cause its flat its just a scab there from soaking tretinion and alchol and stuff on it, i been letting mosturizer soak in it to soften it and help it go away.

_(((ERI%

lol i got a question, the spot on the side of your nose that starts your cheek

where you can pull your nose to the side and see it (your nose kinda covers it)

i dont kno how to describe it but if you know what im talking about, that part its like not connectd to my cheek no more, it looks like a docotor took a hot rod and melted it (no1 can see it tho cause its coverd by my nose) but its nasty, i can pull my nose to the side and it stretches and its like red and the skin looks ripped , its been like this for a while its just never healed and its gotten bigger, im scared my nose might fall off lol. i think i need stitches for it to heal closed togeather or something, but i dont think they can put stitches where its at.... its crazy i dont kno how to say it .

i tryed taking a pic of it but my camera sucks.

Please don't put any more topicals on that area- that is not good, the retina makes your skin thin - you should see a dr or have your parents look at it and see what they think.

oh thanks,

i dont put any tropicals on that area, cause no acne is there . if i took a pic it would make more since, (the spot is not noticable .no one can even see it, if they were examining my face they wouldent even kno if its there, id have to pull my nose to the side or something). the only descriptin of how small it is , is when you turn a quarter sideways and its thin, its that thin and no longer than the quarter is long....

i thnk its fine, my mom is geting me some neosporin and vitam e to put on it to try to help it close.

thanks alot for your consern tho :D

it was funny just now i was out wit my friends and some kid i aint kno but this girl i was with knew the boi stared at me and said in a nasty remark , "damn you need some proactive on that nasty stuff" i juss stared at him then out of no where the girl i know was like " shit u and me too i aint gonna lie" that made me crack up cause of the moment, but her acne isent that bad shes black so you cant see all the redness and stuff you see on me on her you just see her white heads and stuff some (no effence to any black people, 95% of my friends are black)

Oh my GOD. I HATE MY ACNE.

it was clearing, then bam

its coming back

I thought it was clearing, which it is better than before (no cysts nodules postules)

but not i got RED spots from the acne all over my face, its horrible. it make me look ugly.

people have been commenting on all the red spots alot lately, ive been thinking jeeze my acne clears up some but now its leaving red spots everywhere.

and when i mean red and every where, I MEAN RED AND EVERYYYY WHERE.

-----

Ive been using baking soda masks at night, it helps but its not helping the red spots, i dont know what to do. and my cheeks where loosing black heads and my poors where shriinkning, but now im getting black heads and big poors on my cheeks again.

-

Its also the last couple days of school......i SO want to talk to this girl i have been looking at ALL year but im scared cause my acne and red spots are horrible. and i don no its always co-in-sa-dince;s when i stare and see her

like ill see her in 2nd per,. and when i go to look at her its always when she seem to be looking in my direction, or ill c her in the halway, or like today i was out talking a spanish exam in the halway NO1 was in the halls, then out of no where her and another boy came walking by n she looked at me, it seems to always be a coenicedence but i dont kno, and i think she "goes around" but i don no . i dont even thnk she knows my name, we had 2 classes togeather ALL year and i aint never talked to her so i don think she even kno my name, but me i kno everyones name i memorize stuff fast (usualy). but hey if i get tane over summer an she go to the same school next year, hopefully ill have confidence to talk to her.

im shy and quite and dont like having conversations with anyone, ...i dont kno why but i hate that because i dont make as many friends as i could because of that.
