Day 15

I feel pretty much the same as last week. There's little or no acne on my face, and it feels smooth. My only concerns are my nose, which is an oil-pumping machine, and the redness on my cheeks. I'm not sure how to take care of my super oily nose, but I think I can get the redness down with a better moisturizer. I've been experimenting with different moisturizers (btw, this can be full-time hobby!), and I really like Neutrogena's Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizers w/ SPF 30. It absorbs so fast. Time to hop over to Target! Kudos to my cousin Fah for recommending it. :D

    On the contrary! I see much improvement over last week. Your skin looks really healthy. The redness will go away over time. Enjoy your clearer skin :|

    Thanks to everyone for their encouraging comments. Everyone on this site is so nice. :|

    I have to take back my statement (at the top) about Neutrogena's Daily Defense Moisturizer. When used in large amounts (just 1 finger-length worth), the moisturizer clumps up and leaves flakes. I also felt like it took forever for the stuff to absorb. As a result, I've stopped using it, and I've gone back to moisturizer that seems to work for me, which is Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock w/ 30 SPF. My skin absorbs it well, and even though it says "sunblock", it does a pretty good job of moisturizing without making my face look greasy. It does "glow" a little bit after it's absorbed, but I read somewhere this is a result of the SPF components.

    Your improvement is highly visible for just 15 days! Congratulations! About your super oily nose, try Apple Cider Vinegar. It reduces oil production, cleans out pores and blackheads, fades red marks left after acne, smooths skin, and evens out complexion. I can't see any blackheads in your pictures, but it looks like your skin could benefit in all the other ways I mentioned. Read this thread for more info:
