well, i haven't posted here in quite a while because i had made SO much progress on my acne. it's safe to say it was gone. GONE. i'd get the occasional pimple - one itty bitty teeny tiny one would pop up every now and then.

it started last fall and reached its peak in the winter. in the spring, i discovered this website & the regimen, and i gave it a whirl. holy smokes...did it EVER work. i couldn't believe my eyes.

don't know what happened recently...but BAM. acne is back in full force. it looks like a reddened rash of inflamed bumps all over my face, particularly on one side and across my forehead. i am so bummed about this :(

so, it looks like it's back to the drawing board for me. admittedly, i DID start slacking on the regimen a bit since i felt i was 'cured'...i didn't think it would return with so much force. i was doing it diligently two times a day..but within the last couple of months i've been missing treatments every now and then on a fairly regular basis.

so...here i go. starting fresh. so disappointed in myself.

wish me luck!

products i am using (and had tremendous success with):

cetaphil gentle cleansing bar

followed by a small amount of cetaphil gentle cleansing wash

followed by st. ives green tea scrub

followed by cetaphil moisturizer.

so you're not using the regimen again even though it works for you?

That's how the regimen (and BP in general) works though - it's the sort of thing that you have to keep using to continue to see good results. You may be able to use less of the product after a while but you'll still have to use it. That's my understanding of it anyway.

Also there's no reason for you to be disappointed in yourself.

Anyway - good luck with what you're doing now! :)
