Day 13

Wow!!!!! I can't believe it!

My skin looks AMAZING! There is still a way to go but it looks much much better than it did 2 weeks ago. I've even had 2 comments on how good it looks, that was without make up on.

The first week on the Regimen I wanted to stop. My skin was dry and cracked and looked AWFUL.

I had to go to work looking like I had cornflakes all over my face!!!! So I stopped using the BP for a couple of days and voila! My skin rehydrated BUT didn't flare up with spots again!

I'm now back usuing the BP and I've changed moisturiser and my skin is slightly dry on my cheeks where my acne was worst but it's not noticeable.

I've had no new spots since starting the Regimen. I had a huge nodule on my cheek which had been there 7weeks and this has now almost disappeared! It is not noticeable at all with make up!

The skin on my chin was slightly marked and rough from previous acne, now it is MUCH MUCH smoother.

I had a couple of light pock marks on my cheek, these have smoothed out and are barely noticeable at all WITHOUT make up.

After 5 years of trying many antibiotics and topical antibiotics from my GP tryingto rid my adult acne, I have never seen results like this before.

I ALSO STOPPED TAKING MY TETRALYSAL AFTER A COUPLE DAYS ON THE REGIMEN as I wanted to quit long term antibiotics and I have had NO SKIN FLARE UP AT ALL.

As I am in the UK I have sourced my own products.

I have used:

Clean and Clear Refreshing Deep Cleansing Wash

PanOxyl Benzoyl Peroxide 5% Cream

Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid Moisturiser

I will be cutting down to using the BP once a day as most of my spots have gone and I haven't had any new ones.

Hopefully in another few weeks the slight scarring will be reduced further!!!!!!!!!!

Day 1

I have been taking the Tetralysal for 2 months now and although my skin does look remarkably better on the whole, it still wasn't clear. He then prescribed me with Zineryt which I have been using twice daily for 3 weeks now and my skin looks better than it has done for months, EXCEPT for 3 large nodules on my face. One of which is an inch long on my cheek and in such a place that it is very obvious and extremely painful. It has been there for 6weeks now.

I have used Benzoyl Peroxide before in the form of Duac and Panoxyl but I didn't find it anything to scream about really BUT I followed what it said on the tube!

So... I've got nothing to lose... except this HUGE lump on my face.... So I'm going to stop using the Zineryt and give Dan's Benzoyl Peroxide Regime a go.
