Started off the Vitamin B5 regimen last night after reading about it for a while. I guess my ance is considered moderate to severe, this is the worst it has been for me. So I am really hoping that the B5's will work.

I have included 2 initial pictures that were taken in my dark bathroom to track my progress. I took the pictures in the dark with flash to clearly show the extent and severity of the acne. And my eyes/face portion is blurred out to retain some anonymity on the internet surprised.gif

I will only be editing and updating the 2nd post as part of my logs. That way this log thread won't bloat to tens of pages long.
