  1. I know when I tried Proactiv, it seemed as if the glycolic acid was really working on my marks. But I had to stop b/c the acid actually ended up breaking me out. I can't do any kind of acid actually...salicylic, glycolic, lactic, etc. I bet those moisturizers will work over time. The marks eventually do fade themselves, it's just that there are agents that can help speed up the process through exfoliation/removing old layers of skin. In the past BP actually started fading my marks as well;
  2. Optimistic that this'll work again. It's just been two days though. Def wishing it would just go away already though. I'm so tired of my skin not being clear.
  3. Oh meant to note that I used just 1/2 a pump both at night and in the morning. Will keep this up for the rest of the week.
  4. I've been here before but have always gone back and forth with whether I want to use BP. It does produce results. Eh. Think I'll try again. So just saying hey and here's to clear skin.
  5. So no real obvious differences. But my skin is definitely doing the drying thing, which I figure is good because it's as if the dead blemish cells are sloughing off. I just hate it when the corners of my mouth, corners of my eyes, and under my chin are so dry. I'm trying to perfect my technique in applying the moisturizer without blending BP to these areas.

  6. I'm going to track my progress weekly. I'll take a pic each Sat or Sunday and see how things go. Even though I've been on the regimen already, I'm making this week the first week that I've been getting into the hang of doing the regimen exactly. For instance I just started w/ applying the gel on in the morning, I didn't do that before. And like tonight, I'll be adding moisturizer for the first time in a while; usually I wouldn't moisturize at night. So we'll see
  7. Hey there. So already posted these in my blog, but here go my starting pics. It is so much worse than I thought I don't really have active inflammed blemishes, but my scars are outrageous! I've attached the pics and they are also in my gallery. ETA: By the way I have a great makeup that makes those scars almost invisible. So when my skin is smooth, w/ makeup I really do look like I have perfect skin. But the point is to have beautiful skin to wake up to righ
  8. Hey there. So no I wouldn't have an initial breakout w/ BP. I did wheneven I tried other treatments such as sal acid and even glycolic acid when I was trying Proactiv. But BP, my skin took to pretty well. Usually if I used enough BP I would notice that a raised blemish would be smoother by the morning and basically gone within a week. (just w/ a scar left behind...yuck!) As far as drying, for the most part I would use BP regularly, even if it was just once a week or once every 2weeks. So
