    Week 4, Day 7

    So I'm at the very end of week 4, tomorrow I start week 5! Here's a summary of the week for my skin: One of my cheeks was/is perfectly clear all the past week, whereas the other erupted with several ugly pus-filled pimples that now are going away. I'm still breaking out it seems but the pimples I'm getting don't *seem* to be sticking around as long from what I can tell. My clear cheek has two spots that feel like a couple pimples may be arising from under the skin, but I can't tell. T

    Week 4, Day 1

    So I'm on day... 22 I think! After my last post several of those whiteheads that cropped up did turn into larger pimples. Not huge, but yucky pus-filled things. I was feeling really, really dejected about my skin and so discouraged. Over the past couple of days though I'm feeling a bit better because my skin SEEMS to be calming down and healing up. I've still got pimples on my face but for the most part they all seem to be slowly healing and I've only got one new pimple since. - A tiny, tiny

    Week 3, Day 5

    Hello everyone! My AHA came in! Unfortunately though I can't use it until next Wednesday because I'm at my boyfriend's house and it was delivered to mine, hehe. That's fine, I wanted to wait until close to a month to start using it anyway so it forces me to not cheat and use the stuff too early! So my big pimples seem better. Yesterday morning I had one that was just filled with pus and nasty looking, but by yesterday night all the pus was gone (It was weird! It's like it just disappeared!

    Week 3, Day 2

    I can't believe I'm already on day 16! I love when each day goes by because I feel like I'm that much closer to clear skin. (Even if my skin isn't showing that just yet, hehe.) Today my skin is... Maybe a little better? All the little whiteheads are gone, now I'm just left with the pimples that turned into bigger ones. They've all come to a head very fast, which I take to be a good sign. My two old pimples that were healing seem significantly smaller today, which is nice. My skin is sti

    Week 3, Day 1

    Hey everyone! I'm already at day 15! It doesn't seem like I've been on the regimen for two weeks now but I have! That's pretty cool. I ordered Dan's AHA yesterday on a suggestion from dairy_free_diva (Thanks again hon!). I'm going to try and not use it until 3 weeks to a month though because I want to stick to the regimen as close as I can. I'll admit I'm VERY excited about trying it though, I'd LOVE to get rid of these flakes. So my skin status? Terribble. My skin is dry AND broken ou

    say hello to AHA ... good bye flakiness & red marks!

    I'm so glad the AHA is working so well for you! Your sweet comment on my blog totally made me order the AHA today. LOL I can't wait to get it! :DI've never used the AHA myself but I've read on the forums where people say AHA is too irritating for every day use but I'm not sure!

    Day 13

    Thanks sooo much for the advice hon! I want to get Dan's AHA soo bad I kinda wish I'd ordered it with my initial regimen kit purchase! LOL After reading what you've said I may order it sometime this week. I'm at the end of my second week today, I want to at least ttrryy to behave and not use the AHA too early, but three weeks is only a week off of a month so I figure that's close enough! I'll probably place an order this week then once I hit the end of three weeks just try it really lightly and

    Day 12 - Nighttime!

    Ohh I just read your comment! Thanks SO much you brightened up my night. I try not to get too down about this current breakout but all these pimples are no fun! The second week breakout sucks! LOL

    Day 13

    Tomorrow is day 14, the last day of my second week! I'm really excited to be farther and farther along in the regimen and I absolutely cannot wait until my skin starts clearing up! My skin's still looking pretty crappy, still has lots of little whiteheads. A couple of them seem to be a little better but overall my skin is flaky, covered in tiny whiteheads, and rough looking. - Not pretty at all! I also have this TERRIBLE habit of wanting to pull off the giant flakes on my face. I hate see

    Day 12 - Nighttime!

    I'm updating to tell you guys that I think I'm officially going through the second week breakout. My skin looks pretty crappy right now, a bunch of tinnnyy whiteheads popped up all over my cheeks and stuff. I counted, I have a total of 12 active pimples right now! Granted, most of them are TINY. A lot of these whiteheads are about the size of a like a pen tip or something but it's still really discouraging. I'm trying to keep my head up though and remember that a breakout in the 2nd we

    Day 12!

    I'm loving that it's the weekend. I'm not going anywhere today and my face can just breathe free from makeup! I think I'm going to declare myself, tentatively, going through the second-week breakout. That pimple on my chin is now a nasty puss-filled yucky thing, verryy gross. it looks like even the slightest whatever could pop it. LOL The pimple on my cheekbone doesn't really look any bigger but it's there, and the pimple on my cheek that I could barely see yesterday is a tiny bit bigger tod

    Dan's moisturizer good?

    I LOVE Dan's moisturizer. I was using Cetaphil and I had sooo many flakes with it, but since switching to Dan's moisturizer for the regimen my flakes are clearing up. It's great stuff, at least for my skin. Flakes with cetaphil? weird Yeah, I was reading around the forums and saw where people were saying Cetaphil took care of their flakes and stuff but for me it just stung REALLY bad and wasn't moisturizing enough!

    Question About Makeup Removal and Toner

    Before I started the regimen I used a cleansing scrub to wash my face, and it was fairly harsh so of course my makeup came off just from washing my face. The first night I did the regimen I washed with my new cleanser the way Dan described and my makeup didn't come off at ALL. LOL I was like, "Uh oh, this might be bad." So I read around on here and noticed a lot of women saying that they used jojoba oil to remove their makeup. It works beautifully! What I do is before I cleanse my face I VERY

    What can I do?

    It's really hard sometimes to hold your head high and be confident when you feel your skin just looks terrible, I understand that. That being said, know on the regimen you're headed for beautiful clear skin! :) The flakiness and redness are all only temporary and at the end of the day does it really matter if people see you with flaky red skin or pimples? I mean I know it feels like a huge deal but it's really not. Most people aren't even going to notice or if they notice they wont care, and wh
