Day 8

Break outs:

  • Whitehead on nose
  • Papules on chin and left cheek (all popped!)

Am worried about Benzoyl Peroxide long term effect. Is it really safe?

Day 3

No significant break out, just the regular whiteheads on the nose (PMS still, waiting it to end in a few days now).

Popped two old spots that seemed to be healed, but not flat. Whitehead inside, ewh! Slightly inflamed and red, but nothing big.

Received DKR shipment today, and started using it in the afternoon. Still adding 2 drops of Jojoba Oil to DK Moisturizer, since I'm still bothered by the flakiness around my lips, nose and near the jaw line.

The BP feels a lot better and gentler than DDF 5% BP with Benzoyl Peroxide. Loving the feel of Cetaphil cleanser better (it's richer, although doesn't create any suds). The moisturized does not seem to absorb fast (am I using it too much? Is it because of the Jojoba Oil added?). Planning to use less than a pump of moisturizer.

Wrote a blog entry in Fashionese Daily about oily skin and flakiness (a mention on Acne.org and Jojoba Oil included).

Ps. How to add picture to this blog? I tried Photobucket, but all it shows is just the link, and not the actual picture.

Started the DK's regimen on the evening of July 5th when I have a week-long break out while travelling to New York, California and then back to Boston. I guess it's time to switch treatment.

Acne problem = mild to moderate (inconsistent. Sometimes I only got acne during PMS, sometimes all month long. Sometimes I get only whiteheads, occasionally get cystic acne).

I pick my acne. Have uneven skin tone and quite a bit of hyperpigmentation spots.

Added Jojoba Oil (purchased from GNC, brand = Now, for $10) in the evening of July 7th.
