    It's been a long time! Things were going well about 2 weeks ago, but then I started to take Biotin to grow my hair. I take 2500mcg per day, which is a pretty high dose. And then I had a breakout - my skin went to what it was like before I started the regimen. I've seen effects of Biotin already, so I decided to stop taking it for now, and take it from time to time in the future instead taking it daily. I will stop taking it altogether for the next week to test whether Biotin is causing t
  2. It's been two and a half weeks with the regimen. Things are going just as Dan predicted: 1st week = sight improvement, 2nd week = perhaps a breakout, 3rd week = continuous improvement. This week is a long travel: ~48 hours on my way in and out airports. I was almost sure that I will have a breakout from the lack of good rest. But I didn't! There is not new acne forming for the whole week, and I think the regimen contributed 100% to it. In the past, I would get breakout when I sleep after 3 a
  3. One week on the regimen! What happened: I've already doubled the dose of BP during the first week. Works fine. Sometimes I apply 2 layers, sometimes just one. I had a very minor breakout (2 pimples), but they disappeared faster than usual. However I think I need to be more gentle and probably use more BP. Still, only 2 pimples in a whole week is better than what I used to get. I start to mix 10% AHA (Dan's) into the moisturizer. The first time I tried 50:50, and it hurt and I had
  4. Gradually adding the amount of BP I use, since the problems mentioned in the regimen (dryness, redness, itchiness) didn't really happen. Maybe a little redness, but I can't tell if that's my acne or the effect of BP. The effect I'm seeing is that some pimples that were forming up are going down really quickly, and that makes me happy! I used to use some Kiehl's products, including the "Acne Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment". That thing has some effect on making pimples disappear
  5. Received the Regiment Kit today. Started using the jojoba oil to remove the BB cream I had on earlier this morning. First time trying jojoba oil actually, I used to use olive oil but don't like the smell. Then I washed my face, applied treatment, as gently as possible. Didn't notice too much redness or itchiness, for some reason. It feels pretty dry though. I have oily & combination skin so I seldom feel this dry. Will apply moisturizer afterwards. We'll see what happens!
