The Routine

Firstly, I'd like to point out I've never 'blogged' before so here it goes...

Just a little background:

I started using Dan's regimen during the end of summer (which is like end of July around here), and it made my skin a bit better but not too much. So I actually ran out like around September so I paid a visit to a dermatoligist. Note that this is my first derm and I've been suffering from acne for more than a year now :D Btw I am 16 years old. And it freaking sucks.


Anywho, my doctor gave me a prescription for some pills (Doxycycline Hyclate 100mg), BP gel (2.5%), and Tretinoin gel, usp (.01%). I use Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser three times a day. Once in the morning, with Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. After school (around 3 PM) I was my face again and apply BP, and then use the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for dryness. This is also the time I pop those pills, it is one pill per day. Lastly before I go to sleep I wash my face once more and apply the Tretinoin gel and go to bed.

Like, now:

Generally I'm still optimistic about it, even if it feels like I've tried everything. I am oober anxious about this and I really hope it works :D
