I stopped using tea tree oil (after I started a week ago), which doesn't seem to help. Instead I started to take zinc supplement 50 mg, which helps control my oil production.
I drink AVC water as an anti-inflammatory and detox.
I've been using Neutrogena's fading mark peel for a long time, every other morning 30 min, but very little improvement. I'll stick w/ TCA 12.5 peel.
Began using Polysporin to reduce whiteheads, breakouts, and red bumps... it does an incredible job. I expect those ugly bumps to go away by tomorrow.
Aveeno ultra-calming to moisturize and reduce redness, but not sure if it causes minor breakouts. I will test it on my left side, the right I'll use St. Ives vitamin E moisturizer, which I rely and trust.
New breakouts/whiteheads: 3 ugly bumps: 5 total bumps: 6
I'll update later...
