A week.

It's almost been a week since I've entered into the world of prescription based acne regimens. I went to the Dermatologist last Thursday and was prescribed Ziana (an antibacterial gel) and Doryx (an antibacterial pill).

My dermatologist's regimen: Take the Doryx pill once in the morning and once at night. Clean the face with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide face wash (i.e. Proactiv) at night, followed by an application of a pea sized drop of Ziana gel. Rinse the face with warm water in the morning.

So far I believe I have seen an improvement. I feel that my once oily skin has been replace by a much drier, smoother skin. And my acne is drying up as I type. I'm not expecting my acne to just disappear overnight with this regimen. I'm eager to see what these next few weeks have in store for my face.
