concurred acne (finally!) after 2.5 months

Recommended Posts

AM - mild cleanser, SPF moisturizer, Murad concealor to cover spots, then use Bare Mineral Foundation

PM - Bioderma makeup remover, mild cleanser, Retin A 0.025% every other day (very thin layer over face), oil-free moisturizer on top if skin feels dry.

1 doxycycline per day.

1 facial every 2 weeks for extraction (must pick a good facialist, otherwise will scar and make things worse!)

Face started breaking out after moving from US to Asia (Oct). Got really bad in Dec that i considered going on Accutane. But after reading the side effect I really cannot get myself to take it. Luckily my regimen above seems to be working well. Not 100% clear but perhaps a good 75%. With the concealor, acne is barely noticeable and skin condition has improved once i keep things simple.

Hope this helps.
