I can't believe it's only been 4 months. I feel like it's been longer! As you can see, there's a definite difference from 4 months ago: no more new pimples or cysts. I had a horrible reaction to Sronyx birth control. I started off with using over the counter products: Clinique face bar, Clinique face toner for acne, 10% benzoyl peroxide, Origins charcoal face mask...EVERYTHING. Nothing was working the way I wanted it to. I went to the derm, and she put me back on Yasmin, Doxycyline, Acanya gel, and used my gentle face wash, Purity from Philosophy. I saw results, and a month ago, with no new pimples forming, I got switched to Retin-A 0.025% at night, Differin 0.3% during the day (SUNSCREEN!), and upped the Doxy to twice a day. I did the Vi Peel (the strongest dose), which for me, did not seem to work for me. But the was the only thing that really didn't. Can't wait to continue my program, and hopefully make these hyper pigmentation marks dissapear with the Retinol.
