Day 21

finally 3 weeks into the regimen. i still have a few zits here and there and its probably because i ve been using the bp only for spot treating because of all the redness and dryness its been causing. things are okay for now. im not complaining. its not perfect but i can definitely live with this.

Day 20

My face was a little more flaky today after i had applied some makeup last night. My face is really oily now in the t zone so i think i might go out and find something to help with the oilyness. again nothing major but a few tiny zits here and there which are still really annoying.

Day 20

Last night i decided to try on some make up. i washed my face, placed bp, moisturizer and then applied the makeup. i didn't wash my face until this morning. i was a little worried because i thought would break out into an ugly mess. fortunately my face remained the same. my face still seemed a little oily looking even with the makeup on so i think i might have to cut down on the moisturizer only when i decide to use makeup. again there has been a few tiny pimples here and there but i can't complain because my face looks a lot better than what it did.

Day 19

Last night i actually started to get a bunch of tiny pimples around my chin. i got so worried i packed on a lot of bp in that area. this morning they all went down a size which was amazing. i love this stuff. everything again is still pretty much the same. i still seem to get some dry skin on the chin and the side of the face that seems to peel off when i clean my face in the morning. can't wait to try the aha in 2 weeks.

Day 18

the pimple by my lip hardened up so i peeled it off this morning. it has flattened out a little but its still there. i seem to be getting tiny pimples here and there but nothing major. moisturizer tends to make my face oily which i still don't like but atleast the redness has subsided. still continuing to do spot treatment only. flakiness has gone down as well. okay with results but not completely happy.

Day 17

Last night i decided to pop the pimple that had been boiling under my lower lip hoping it would disappear the next morning if i covered it up with bp. wrong! its even bigger than before. note to self...stop popping your damn zits! besides the monster that lays under my lip everything has been okay so far. dan's moisturizer still leaves my face looking like a grease ball so i usually use it before bed.

Day 16

The flakiness is pretty much gone except for under my chin. Redness is gone but i did notice that after i worked out my face was a little more red than usual. Scars again are visible. i did get a few pimples here and there but they disappeared pretty quickly the next day after applying bp. Pretty much the same as yesterday.

Day 15

No more redness!!! i can actually go out in public now after being a prisoner for 3 weeks!!! my face has cleared up significantly. still a little dry but all the red is gone and the severe flaking has gone down as well. scars have lightened a little also. I have been using the bp only in the areas where i break out, i use cerave with no jojoba in the am because it makes my face look toooo greasy if i add the jojoba, i use dan's moisturizer with jojoba in the pm. it has worked great for me! everyone has said my face has improved a lot since i started. thank you godddd! i just hope it stays like this forever

RESULTS: redness gone, not as flaky, still a little dry, scars have lightened

Day 14

yesterday my face was still way to red and flaky that i decided to cut back on the bp. so last night i applied the bp only on the areas where i would break out rather than my entire face. this morning my face was still extremely flaky but a lot less red. my skin has been peeling off a lot so now i have a bunch of brown patches of dry skin on my face. eventually they will just peel off hopefully. my face so far looks a lot better. still a little difficult to smile due to the dryness but better. i'm going to keep up with this by just applying on areas where i break out hopefully this works out.

RESULTS: a lot less red, still dry and tight, no active acne maybe one or 2 on the chin and temple, brown patches of skin around the chin

Day 13

woke up this morning and looked into the mirror and WOWWW super flakyyyy and my face definitely feels super stiff. i immediately washed my face, applied bp, and applied the cerave lotion. again it kept balling up on me so instead of spreading it across my face i kind of lightly patted it across my face which helped it from clumping. once i applied the lotion though my face felt this strong stinging sensation that lasted atleast a minute or so. eeeeek... the stinging though stopped. the redness on my face is not as bad. still there though but again not as severe. overall no active pimples just scars that have been there but are now a lot more visible.

Results: redness, slight burning sensation with moisturizer, extremely dry!!!

Day 12

DAY 12: big mistake on applying loads of bp as a first time user. i couldn't help it i got too excited. i have no one to blame but myself. lesson learned. the active acne on my face has definitely gone down, the scars from past acne are a lot more visible, but what my concern is the REDNESS!!! its deifinitely dry and it flakes a lot around my chin every morning. its kinda cool and gross to see those bits of dry skin come off knowing that there's new beautiful skin growing right under. I have been using dan's moisturizer since day one. the redness didn't start til the 4th day. i cut down on the bp but my face still looks like a damn tomato! so i did more research and found Cerave moisturizing lotion to help with redness. i applied it last night and there was a slight tingling on my face afterwards. the problem with this moisturizer is that it toesn't go on very easily and its too early to say if its helping with the redness because right now my face looks the same. the moisturizer tends to ball up and i constantly have to rub my finger across my face til it goes clear. hopefully the redness goes away soon. crossing my fingers!

RESULTS OF DAY 12: few active pimples here and there on chin but overall better than before, dry and flaky only around chin EW, post scarring visible, and still lookin like a tomato :(

My history

i've been actually writing about my experience in my own little notebook but i decided that sharing my experience on here would be more beneficial to me as well as those who are trying out this regimen. having the support from other acne sufferers helps me keep my head up because you guys are the only one's who know what i'm going through. anyway lemme give you some history. i started getting acne when i was 11 and god were kids cruel at that age. at that age it didn't really bother me to go and see a dermatologist to get the issue fixed. i just tried oTC products and of course none worked. i tried oxy pads, clean and clear cleanser, biore warming cleanser, neutrogena acne wash, cetaphil wash, some crap from europe and the philippines, even tried rubbing alcohol on it. not a damn thing worked. i finally went to see a dermatologist when i reached high school. He put me on minocycline, tetracycline, differin, and a bunch of other antibiotics and topicals. It finally came to the point where i used accutane. purging cycle was a disaster. had to stay in for a month and a half. i was on the birth control pill as well while on accutane and it was a miracle. my skin was fantastic for 2 years UNTIL i stopped taking the birth control pill. christ! my acne came back with a vengeance. 2 years worth of acne within days. i turned to the derm. again gave me differin and clindamycin, which he realized i was allergic to!! god it was just horrible! i'm left with active cysts and horribel scars! i searched the net in tears trying to look for some kind of hope. i saw so many good reviews on this regimen and i thought what the hell do i have to lose SERIOUSLY. my face can't get any worse than it looks. the day i got it i jumped for joy and started the regimen the next morning. I applied a finger size amount praying for a miracle. to my surprise the 3 zits on the right side of my face subsided. holy crap! i have been applying a finger size amount day and night until 3 days ago.
