- I Survived! I know, I know, there's still a while to go, but what may not look like huge progress as far as clearing my acne, I'm happy that things are getting going, and all that wonderful stuff that's been hiding out under my skin is ridding itself.
At this point my routine is as follows:
Wash face with Cetaphil (no face cloth, due to sensitivity)
Neutrogena Alcohol free Toner
Avene Clean-Ac Cream (hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic) (only after the recommendation of a friend who works in cosmetics, and the cetaphil moisturizer doing diddly-squat for the dryness on my chin)
Night (after shower/just before bed)
Wash with Cetaphil
Tactupump (tiny dots targeting chin/jawline, and spreading -about a decently sized pea ammount alltogether)
Avene cream on chin
-some nights I take ibuprofen because I've started getting headaches more at night (not sure if it's just the stress of it all, or the sore,protruding pimples on my forehead/temple areas now) and I've noticed that it helps with the burning/pain and possibly helps with the redness/swelling.
