    Alright.. well it's time to retry.. I'm going to do my best to stay on the regimen. I will avoid all other acne treatments.. Things i'm considering. Birthcontrol Alpha Hydrox face wash AHA/BHA lotion glycolic acid (toner?) complex 15 moisturizer jojoba oil witch hazel What i'm sticking with. CSR gel Daily vitamins well I am going to keep using purpose moisturizer during the day. BP+AHA lotion at night. And as a cleanser i'm using neutrogena oil-free acne wash with SA. as soon as I find/or
  5. thanks a ton. I'm looking forward to trying the jojoba oil. you have been a big help. I also feel i'm used to the bp, when i first starting using it a few years ago i went straight for the 10%. because i couldn't find any lower dosage + i thought max strength would= clear skin fast... i have used it off and on but i would really like to settle into using the lower BP% csr gel and chemical exfoliation. anyway good luck to you, and thanks again!
  6. thanks=) have you guys tried AHA lotion then bp ? I was reading here http://www.cosmeticscop.com/learn/art.asp?ID=138 when i was trying to find out if i can use AHA over/under BP. On the site it says that using AHA/BHA under differin or other retinoids, actually improves it's effectiveness because it is able to penetrate the skin.. cool as kim deal --one more thing.. i see you use jojoba oil, i also want to try this because my skin is a type of dry oily and flaky. what was your skin like b
  7. I want to try this but i'm kind-of scared of making my face burn, or some kind of crazy chemical reaction happening. has anyone tried this before? i'm using the csr gel and alpha hydrox lotion with a 7%AHA
  8. Witch hazel can actually reduce redness and inflamation. i use a witch hazel toner once to twice a day. it helps tons. i can't seem to find the product you mentioned.. the "witch" ones. is that the brand ? or do you just call them that because they have witch hazel in them ?
  9. Murad didn't work for me i tried the kit, it made places where i usually don't break out, break out in small pink bumps. I think i may have had an allergic reaction to the talc in the lotion. the cleanser sucked.. and the gel burned all the time. The only thing i liked was the mask. I also used proactiv and hated it but my hate for murad is much much stronger lol . i recomend checking the ingredients in everythung before you purchase..
  10. i'm in a really bad mood atm, and i can't seem to get out of this rut. I'm starting to reevaluate my life, because i want to be a better, happier person. i feel so trapped. i can't get out of my house because the weather is gross. i usually think a lot, clean my room, listen to music and if i have enough energy i dance .. that usually does the trick once and a while i'll rant to a good friend (when i can get them to listen, i feel like no one listens to me these days..) but today i'm here try

    ARG! I'm in such an effing bad mood! eff eff eff
  12. no worries, it helped. um.. not sure if dark pores and black heads are the same thing (for me) because my "dark pores" are kind of gray-ish and when i squeeze them a small seed of translucent yellow wax comes out (lovely I know!) and when i extract a black head it's usually just a little black speck so i don't know exactly what these are.. maybe just sebum build up that doesn't turn into a pimple because the pores are too open? any way good luck with your regimen! i'll check back

    i'm considering starting a new log because i'm trying the csr again, and also because i will be on birth control soon. hm --ponder ponder ponder-- i forgot to put in a description of how my skin is doing.. well i still have pimples on the sides of my upper neck below and on my jaw line.. these appeared when i started using murad (bah) murad also made my forehead break out in a mess of small pimples luckily these went away fast after i stopped using it. my acne seems to be some-what symetrical.
  14. it's great that you're doing well, i'm also considering birthcontrol and differin. I think i will try the birth control before i add another topical into my regimen.. just curious what's your personal expierience with differin and dark pores? does differin help with dark pores and/or black heads?

    well well.. i'm so happy it's spring break! YAY.. still not clear but i'm slowly (emphasize slowly) getting better. I'm going to try and get an appointment to see a gynecologist asap. I really think birthcontrol will help with my skin as well as my irregularity. as for topical stuff.. morning facial cleansing towels Natures cure SA spray on cotton ball purpose spf 15 moisturizer night facial cleansing towels witch hazel toner CSR gel cetaphil lotion if needed mint julep mask when needed e

    ok.. well! the murad turned out to make my skin so bad and made me so stressed that i just gave up on it.. i used cetaphil cleanser for a while, 2 weeks maybe? that gave me a lot of white heads but made my face a lot less irritated then for about a week i was using some oil free neutrogena acne wash that i had from a while ago. now i bought a bp neutrogena cleanser/ mask the one you can leave on as a mask for 5 mins or just use it as a daily cleanser. i also bought a gentle scrub from neutrogen

    well yeah i am done with the first month and got my 2 month supply in the mail. my skin got incredibly bad but is now starting to improve plus i had my period for a little over 2 weeks! it sucked but the last time i had it it lasted exactly 3 weeks. I've never had a regular cycle.. it was always longer than it should be and either too close together and at one point i didn't get it for 6 or 7 months. I'm considering birth control to fix this and to help with my acne. as for my face.. well my ch
  18. hmm.. i'll def keep this in mind. thanks for sharing!
  19. Good Luck! sorry to hear that murads not working for you.. I've been using it for about a week now and i'm still recovering from the IB. I hope it works and hopefully dans regimen will work for you. I tried it but never stuck to it. my skin did very well when i was on benzaclin and the generic version of it. i found that my skin was too tough from other high percentage BP products that 2.5% just wasn't enough. I probly needed about a 5 or a 7.. best wishes!

    Thanks Brandy my regimen is going well. I have been picking a lot lately =( i'm trying to find something to keep my hands occupied ( typing here works.. ha) but there has been a lot on my mind lately and i feel it's also because the murad regimen is making blemishes scab over and heal quicker.. I bought a new body wash Olay complete body wash with vitamins for normal skin it's soap free, has vitamins A,E,and B3 it does have a scent however it does not list "fragrance" as an ingrdient i

    i know i haven't said much about my body acne.. this is because before last may i got it under contol with mild soap, a scrub brush and alternating 10%BP and sea breeze sensitive astringent at night. since then i haven't used much on my back. some astringent, or toner here and there. but nothing strict. i still break out on my chest, neck, back and arms but it's not as bad as it used to be.. i have about 5 pimples on my chest area and a few inactive pimples on each arm and about 10 on my entire
  24. there's no question about it. salt water+sun reduces bacteria and speeds the production of vitamin D in the skin which heals acne. make sure to use a sunscreen of minimum spf15 (if you care about preventing skin disorders), you will still tan but you won't burn.
