This picture was taken before starting the regimen. My face may look clear but my chin is extremely swollen due to a LOT of cystic acne getting ready to surface. I do have some cystic acne spots near my mouth that were erupted- but used concealer to try and hide it. Also, I have a lot baby acne on my forehead which doesn't show up in the picture (which is why I wore my hat a lot). You can see how oily and shiney my face is. This was taken early in the morning- AFTER I had washed my face.
