Almost a year!

I haven't updated my album in quite a while. That's mostly because I'm not on the regimen anymore. I stopped about 2 months ago, and started up on retinoids. My skin still is not perfect, but the Bare Minerals makeup sure does help a lot. This is a makeup picture, because I basically don't have active acne anymore! I'm still dealing with a lot of scars. Plus, I have closed comedones, but the retin-a is taking care of those (slowly but surely). Anyway, just wanted to say hi and give ya'll an update :wacko:

    From the album:

      Hottie! :( I'm fascinated that you were able to go off the Regimen and get onto retinoids with success. That is cool. I wonder if what you had was Pyoderma Faciale. See http://www.acne.org/typesofacne.html all the way at the bottom of the page. This type of acne comes on suddenly and leaves abruptly as well.

      Well, hey Dan! You're pretty hot, yourself :( Thanks for your comments. I read the link about Pyoderma Faciale. I s'pose it could have been that, but who knows? Remember, I took Accutane twice. My acne first came on in my mid-20s. The breakout last year was a resurfacing of the evil acne monster. Whatever you want to call it, it was devastating and I could NOT have lived through it without (a) your regimen, (b) the information and support on this board, and © the simply amazing .Org-ers who cheered me on.

      When I went off the regimen, I started a new one. I got a Skin Medica kit from an aesthetician. It has a face wash, a toner with tea tree oil, and an AHA/BHA cream. At night, I apply retin-A micro. By this point, my active acne was calmed down by all the BP and I think that I'd gotten rid of most of the acne bacteria. Now, it's just a matter of training my skin to renew itself properly. The retinols seem to be working well.

      Celebration, your skin looks fantastic! Makeup or not, I can tell you have 1000% improvement! I'm glad the Bare Minerals makeup is working out for you. I stopped doing the regimen also because my skin cleared up finally too! I still do everything the same except I have omitted the On-The-Spot. ACV was and still is my life saver. Anyway, I am so happy for you. Congratulations! Now you have something to "celebrate"!

      Thanks for being so open and honest and documenting your acne struggle...it's encouraging to see someone work through the challenge slowly but surely...

      I hope your face continues to clear up and get smooth if hasn't yet already!

      Thanks again.
