    Problems with my Regimen (4 Months in)

    i agree!!! I recently stopped using large amount of bp and only do spot treatment and use moisterizer +jojoba oil afterwards. My dry patches are going away! Im going to continue doing spot treatment and hopefully I don't get other acnes back.

    First Week down.. but "wrinkles"

    The wrinkles are all temporary, start using jojoba oil and they'll go away.

    In need of some encouragement :) 7 weeks in...

    you'll need to stick to it longer to have it make work for you. i just started to clear up after two and a half months, its kind of a drastic change! be patient.

    Problems with my Regimen (4 Months in)

    same problem here. I'm on my 10th week of the regimen, and i had been scratching my face as well. The face is itchy especially after putting on a ton of moisterizer and jojoba oil. I've been trying very hard not to scratch.....but i fail. I'm gonna tie my hand up when i go to sleep from tonight on.

    day 74 woot!!!! no new break outs!!!! I have been clear for 4 days. the only ones i have right now are the tiniest whiteheads that have been dried up, and im still waiting for them to fall off themselves. I think it is safe to conclude the ultimate method of getting rid of acne 1. a gentle cleanser 2. 2.5% bp gel 3. a moisterizer with a ton of jojoba oil 4. green tea 5. fruit/green smoothies That's what helped me have the skin i have TODAY. Hopefully, my skin improves more with time. The dry skins around my mouth are starting to heal and soon they will be as pretty as the rest of my skin is.!!! YAYYYYY. Dan Rocks.

    day 72 over the past 5 days, my skin has experienced a tremendous improvement. Red spots are fading, and everything is less inflamed, and I am soooooo happy for the results. Also I had been having greensmoothies, I'm not sure if its those that helped with the improvement, but overall i'm happy. Theres just one thing that's been bothering me for the past few days, is the dry itchy patches that's along my hairline (on the sides) I looked up, it was because I had used 3 pumps out of the blue, and it was irratating my skin, but it will go away. Right now I'm just using 1-1.5 pumps of BP twice a day, everyday. I do jojoba oil exfoliation when times i don't wear my make up, and it seems to help with the dryness and flakiness. Looks like I'm closer to my goal everyday! Keep it coming Improvement!!!!

    flakiness :-(

    ramping up to three pumps from one pump is way too fast, do it slowly, I ramped from two pumps to three pumps, and it wasn't a good idea, I'm almost three months, the dryness is insane. Definitely do it slowly if you want less flakiness . Jojoba oil works very well on flakiness (it takes time

    BP and burned skin

    I have this situation as well! its this rash like rough itchy skin I was really frustrated. But now I know that I should ease my bp. so i reduced my bp from 2 pumps to one pump right now. Hopefully it heals up!!!

    2.5 months!day 67 Things are starting to look up. I had been having green and fruit smoothies for the past 4 days and it has been a great help for my skin. Right now my main goal is to start fighting red marks. I hope green smoothies help. They don't really taste all that nice, but for my skin, I'm willing to eat anything. I just browsed some of photoes from the gallery and they are true inspirational pictures. Some took 6 months to clear up. I feel 2.5 months are still quite early on the regimen, given my skin condition. I'm gonna give it more months! I have faith in it! Hopefully I clear up before i turn 21!!

    2 months on the Regimen Still breaking Out

    AHA helps with redness and scaring. It works very slowly though, but it works.
  11. Hi, all I just finished my second month mark on the regimen, I had been clear for a few days during the regimen, but last week, i started breaking out again. I'm a college student doing an engineering major so there's a lot of stress. Over the two months, I had some improvement, but not drastic, I feel using AHA really helped me got rid of the scary sunburn look. And I just started the green smoothie regimen as well. hope?

    same day. I just invested on a blender, and hopefully it gets here this Friday so I can start mixing veges. I am so discouraged right now. Sights. I think its because of the stress college students face. I'm expecting my period on the 8th, which is friday and I have an audition for an intern in the museum this Saturday. It's gonna be another full on make up. Well, I'd better get that job. Iv been breaking out around my mouth area. I think its my junk food intake and hormone inbalance. Can't wait can't wait. I worked out today, so it's a progress. I should put on make up less, no make up tomorrow. I guess..

    Day 61 I'm going to quickly update my reflections on adjusting lifestyle and the results I got from it. So for the past few days the area underneath my nose has been so inflamed and it has been a pain, but it's gradually going away. I had been breaking out a lot over the past weekend and the previous two days. My face is itchy when i apply jojoba oil for some reason. Some of the things I did that I think helped with my skin -Drink TONS of water and at least one cup of tea perday. the more the better -actually ATE fruits although the fruits from the school cafe is absolutely gross -I havent really noticed a difference in my vitamin intake and acne. but it doesn't hurt to take some -be EXTRA gentle to my face, and really avoid touching it during the day! I'm going to keep a log on my face touching frequency. Avoid touching fACE!!!! its so important Maybe I should get back on apples again. Just to give it a try. because i remember when i was in highschool, if i missed an intake of an apple, i'd break out. Have faith.

    Day 58 My face is healing slowly, and I can see some differences everyday. however as some of them go away, new ones form. But I believe that its the bp thats keep digging out dirt from underneath the surface of my skin. Yesterday I had a full on make up because I had to be present for a 4 hour long interview for the scholarship I was applying for. i had all my hair up and strangely my face was not irritated at all! And later that night I went out with my friends to go shopping, didn't get anything, but got wow bao on our way back. Since i didn't eat any dinner, I didn't feel guilty about eating two Bao zi Anyways, this morning when i woke up, the under the surface comedones came up to surface this morning, although sore and swollen, I feel good about it because It's trying to get rid of the toxins. A summary of what more i SHOULD do which i hadn't done for the past week 1)Drink moremoremoremormore water. 2)Eat wheat 3)No mayo or butter 4)Soymilk 5)lots of fruits and veges (I should really pick up on those) i don't know when i started to not like fruits and veges , maybe they arn't cooked the way i like. I miss my mama's veges. take vitamins daily!!!!!!!!!!!

    Day 55 I'm kind of scared of the fact that I'm soon reaching my two months mark, and I suddenly started experiencing another round of break out. Maybe its due to hormones because I'm about to have my period in one week. Being a women sucks....but what can you do..? I had been clear for a few weeks before I had this sudden break out. My left cheek seems to be healing very well, whereas my right cheek looks like a disaster, really. its so scary... My forehead and temples are healing great!! my chin and my right cheek are the places where I need most attention now. This lump on the right side of my cheek doesn't seem to want to go away. I gets softer every day,...so i guess thats a sign of getting better? I had been stressed out over the weekend, i guess thats why my acne got worse for a few days. My neck has been itchy... And i need to clean my room. Maybe that helps my acne. I should get back on doing my foot spa.
