Clear Skin, Here I come

Recommended Posts

About Me:

I am 16 and have been suffering from acne for the past 3-4 years. At first it wasn't that bad, just a few pimples here and there, it never seemed to bother me. Then it just exploded and took me by surprise. Anyways, I am here to find a way to clear it up and be confident in my looks again. I would say I have mild acne all over my face. Now, I am going to get my skin cleared up so I can feel the way I used to be.

Odd this weekend I haven't moisturized at all and my face isn't flaking as much as I thought it would. This could be due to submerging my face in water that might be helping remove the flakes. Ever since I started that the flakes started to go away.

A.M.

- Submerge face for 120 seconds in warm water

P.M.

I been sick with a cold so haven't been posting too much. I think from the cold I will break out a bit but as of right now I am pretty clear. My face just has a few small bumps on it and some red marks that I hope the AHA can help clear up. There also is this pimple under my nose that keeps coming back all week. I am trying not to touch it or fool with it since I cut it when shaving. :wall: I hope it heals up over the weekend.

Day 17 - 09/27/08

It has been a week since I last posted and I haven't been feeling well enough to be doing much. Pretty much most of the week I was laying around feeling real down about some things and haven't had the urge to apply BP and the AHA as much as usual. This is just a minor set back and hopefully I will recover from it.

Today:

Noon

- Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Cleanser

- Wipe with Clearasil Maximum Strength Pore Cleansing Pad

- Submerge face for 120 seconds in warm water

- Dan's AHA+

P.M.

Day 46 - 10/26/08

Status:

It has been a long while since I last posted and I hope to post daily once again. Since my last post my skin has gotten a lot clearer. I have seen drastic improvements and am starting to have only red marks on my skin. It stinks that I am now going to have to try to spare as much BP as I can this week till I get my new bottle. I have been having trouble with flaking once again which is why during the week I only apply the BP once.

Today:

A.M.

- 100 MG Doxycycline

- Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar

- Dan's AHA+

P.M.

- Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar

- Dan's BP

- Dan's AHA+

Day 97 - 12/13/08

Status:

It has been 97 days of trying to rid my acne and it is frustrating. I look at where I came then to where I am now and am impressed but not satisfied. About a week ago I was beginning to get more frustrated then ever and decided to submerge my face in hot water for 5 minutes. Surprisingly this is working and I am clearing up.

Today:

A.M.

- Soak for 5 minutes

- Wash with hand soap

- Dan's BP

Day 156 - 02/10/09

Status:

Wowa I started this 156 days ago and I am almost completely clear. The only think I need to clear up is my red spots which I will just take some time I suppose. I am hoping to be completely clear by the end of February or near mid March.

What I been doing:

I only been full time on the DKR since the beginning of January and rarely missed any days.

(All for Face)

Morning:

- Wash with 1 pump Acne.org Cleanser

- Wait 5 Minutes

- Apply 2 pumps of Acne.org Treatment

- Wait 20-25 Minutes

- Apply 1 pump of Acne.org Moisturizer mixed with 6 Drops of Jojoaba oil

Night:

- Wash with 1 pump Acne.org Cleanser (In shower)

- Wait 5 Minutes

- Apply 2 pumps of Acne.org Treatment

- Wait 20-25 Minutes

- Apply 2 Fingers of Acne.org AHA+

My only question is why is it taking so long for the BP to dry? Am I not spreading it enough?

Day 174 - 02/28/09

Status:

I AM ALMOST THERE! I feel that I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I would say my face is 85% clear as of right now. I recently added the Egg White Mask to my regimen and it really is helping a lot. I am going to keep applying the Egg White Mask every Saturday and Wednesday before I start trying other things. (Looking to try the lemon juice and Aspirin Mask soon)

Day 186 - 03/12/09

Status:

Things have been up and down but finally I think I found the key to my problem, sleep. The nights I get more sleep my acne clears up. The nights where I don't get much sleep the acne gets worse. I think within a few days of sleeping more I will receive great results. I also ordered the 16 oz. Treatment which I plan to be my last order of the treatment with acne. :D I have added the St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub which I apply every Monday and Friday. Flaking is GONE and now I don't have to use any Jojoba Oil.

(All for Face)

Morning:

- Wash with Hand Soap

- Apply 2 pumps of Acne.org Benzoyl Peroxide Treatment

Night:
