  1. Yes my skin was very dry, flaky...I found that using a toner (I use Sukin micellar water) really helped to reduce the flakiness and as a result my breakouts slowed down immensely...I also think the flaky skin clogs your pores and causes more pimples, as soon as I was able to get that under control my breakouts pretty much stopped. Anyways hang in there!!
  2. I know exactly how you feel. I was in your predicament two months ago! My skin went through the cycle of clearing then breaking out for weeks and weeks and it was so frustrating. I also broke out using jojoba oil so I had to stop. In the end the stress caused my breakouts to flare up even more so I had to learn to stop looking in the mirror and fussing over or picking at my skin. I know it's tough but try to stick with it and don't pick or touch your skin! Good luck
  3. To be honest I wanted to quit after the first month but I stuck with it! I guess I started to notice results when I hit the three month mark, and things began to improve more each week. I still get the odd pimple and also have marks to contend with but I'm thankful to be clear! Good luck with your journey and hang in there!
  4. So I've been on the regimen for four months now and after nearly three months of constant breakouts I'm happy to report I'm finally clear. I have one pimple at the moment but it's small, and I haven't had a dreaded cyst in weeks. The flakiness is completely gone as well. I'm now just left with a bit of hyperpigmentation but no major or deep scarring. I'm just using a derma rolling kit at the moment to help fade the marks. Anyway it's been a long and arduous four months and I never thought I'd see clear skin again. I've still got a long way to go to it looking like it once was but it's nice to wash your face and not feel all the bumps! To to anyone who's feeling discouraged on those initial few months on the regimen please hang in there, it WILL get better. Just posted a pic of my current skin
  5. I use Sukin organics sensitive moisturizer. To be honest your skin will be red, dry and flaky for a few weeks while it adjusts to the BP. I found using a toner helped to gently remove the excess flakes, but I only introduced this once my breakouts calmed down. Good luck.
