Reducing Red Marks/not Picking! - Progress So Far

Recommended Posts

Posted

Hello!

So I have had acne for almost a decade including the cystic type when I hit my 20s which was when I also started picking my skin which has been for 7 years. My skin has lots of red marks and I have devised a skincare routine to try and reduce these and also stop picking. From the following photos I think there has been a bit of improvement in just a week.

Morning:

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

Epitheliale A.H. Cream - If I go out I skip this and use Mineral Powder foundation which has SPF.

Evening:

Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Calming Creamy Cleanser by Una Brennan

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

Epitheliale A.H. Cream

Every 2-3 weeks

Philosophy in-home vitamin c/peptide peel kit

And probably most importantly - NO PICKING AT FACE!!! Alas I did have a slight relapse as evident from the left side of my face but for me to be able stop was a miracle. Plus I have the occasional spot and am able to leave these alone!!!! I really think being able to do so can be partly attributed to no longer giving a f**k about my skin and starting yoga i.e. focusing on something else completely.

Anyway I'll keep posted on any further progress!
