    My Regimen Log.

    Well I started using murad last monday evening(Jan-08). So I'm on day 5. I'm still taking my multi vitamins and trying to fix my sleep schedule. I know I'm having the initial break out from murad because my skin is purging and bringing all the nasty stuff to the surface. I started to see this on day 2. I am thinking about only using the exfoliating treatment gel at night. I feel it's become a bit too drying to use twice a day, i thought my skin could handle it. for those of you who aren't sure w

    I forgot to mention this.. I found out I had mono when I went to get checked for a thyroid problem. my thyroids fine but mono really does suck..

    well things have been up and down with my skin since my last post and honestly i didn't stick with that insanely long regimen *i had as my sig*... it was just way too much to keep track of and took so much time and didn't help my skin. since nov i've just been washing my face with cetaphil using a witch hazel toner and using the csr gel at night and the hydrox lotion under make-up during the day. but i haven't been eating right, stopped taking the multi vitamins, not enough sleep, developed mon

    everything is still going well i have a few more skn color bumps around my mouth and chin
  5. Thanks! Can you get this purpose moisturizer in drug stores? I'm kind of hesitant to get the Cetaphil moisturizer though because I've seen a lot of people have complaints about it and how it's way too greasy (but that is does control flakes). What moisturizer do you use now beentheredonethat? I see in your sig it says something about Green Cream? I tried something a little different tonight after washing with my Cetaphil, I put a LOT of jojoba oil all over the acne affected areas

    I slept for over 12 hours today and now at 2 am i'm not so tired. this could really ef up my schedule but i'll be going to sleep soon. everything is still looking good not much improvement since last update. my skin is a bit dry. i see a few more bumps coming to the surface, probly because my skin is drying out. btw i'm now trying basis vitamin bar, anyone ever used it ? is it something i should stick with ? thanks =)

  9. Hi tigerlilly, it looks like your skin has made a decent improvemnet in such a short time =) good luck! in my opinion cetaphil moisturizer works really well for night time, and i personally use purpose moisturizer with spf 15 it can be a little shiny after applying it though, i only use it during the day when i need it because my make-up has spf 15 as well. best wishes!

    i just noticed that.... i've been here for 6 months to this day. i have made progress, and have been set back a few times due to my own stupidity of changing my regimen. so this is what i'm going to do.. eat healthier get some blood work done to see if i have a hyperthyroid problem stick to a strict regimen, i should be getting a new cleanser soon i need something that doesn't suck the moisture out of my skin possibly see a dermatologist soon. Thanks to all who have been wishing me luck. I wi

    Hello all, I've recently been examining my diet.. I'm thinking of making it more healthy thanks to a memember here at acne.org =). so far i can see improvement and will be putting up more pictures in about another week. My regimen has been fluctuating slightly due to the availability of my purpose cleaner, but who knows maybe the noxzeam wash will become my secret weapon mwahaha. we'll see.

    Just put new pictures in my album.. I was feeling crappy about my skin all day today but then I came home and decided I should upload the new pictures to show my progress. So I did and I looked back at what my face looked like in april and was thankfull that my skin has improved even though it's taking longer than I would have liked. I'm sticking to the regimen except I am using noxzema anti-bacterial cleanser because I ran out of the purpose cleanser but if it shows any signs of getting wors

    well, i've been gone for weeks. it's good to take a break once and a while regimen is same as it's been for the past few weeks. I got a lot worse, now i'm starting to get better slowy. i have lots of red marks and irritaied bumps.. my birthday's tomorrow yay! ehh.. not all that inthused. really not sure why but anywho ill try to get back in the logging game take care
  15. hi jenna, i can say that sleep and stress make huge differences with acne. when i get stressed/worried over long periods of time i notice the week after i break out like crazy.. and we both know the best thing to do is not to pick, it's hard and yes i do give in a little bit and get mad at my self afterwards too lol. hang in there! i found that it helps to GENTLY exfoliate with a bath scrub brush, the bristel kind. this helps make-up go on smoother. just don't scrub hard if you are going to try

    it's going well so far, i really like the purpose liqiud cleanser and as you can see i have been using the BP during the day instead of the SA. I really didn't want to walk around all day with a shiny face. it's working and i'm just being carefull with my shirts. steaming has also been helping a lot! i think i may add it to my regimen =P i used my moms facial steamer from revlon instead of sea salt and water in a bowl. i just updated my album so be sure to check out the progress..

  18. i use SA and BP in my regimen.. BP during the day and SA at night. i found that it's been working for me and am hoping to have clear skin soon.. however it may not work for everyone, and skin should be monitored carefully when using both in the same regimen.

    well not picking but i popped it. so same difference because i didn't leave it alone. i used vitamin e on it for about a week and it healed it pretty quick. there's a small red mark there now.

    today was my first day at college. for the fall anyway. I was there in the summer for 2 classes so I already know my way around (for the most part) yes i wore make-up today.. 2 hard,almost flat bumps and some small red pimples on my cheeks and 2 on my forehead. in a desperate attempt to shrink them faster i used a thin layer of 10%BP cream last night it seemed to work but left my face a bit red. i really don't like using the SA under my make-up it makes my face so much shinnier =( even with po

    still going well, the SA is pulling out all the stuff stuck in my pores, hopefuly it will pull out the black heads as well.

    going well, i see a big difference. i will be putting more pictures up next week. i added a 1%SA gel called bye bye blemish (another product my mom bought) HOWEVER IT WAS FOR GOOD REASON!! I PROMISE! =) the csr gel gives me cyst like acne under the skin for some reason.. most likely due to not using a scrub brush any more because it was too irritating for my face i'm also using the sea breeze for sensitive skin as a toner/astringent because i still can't find my usual toner so this is how it

    can't find the toner yet.. i have a GIANT purple lump on my face! it was a cyst pimple, at least i think it was.. 3 or more people asked "what's that on your face?" or do you have ink on your cheek?" it looks a greyish brown with make-up over it. NOTHING can cover this sucker. It's this way because i just couldn't leave it alone..No ofcourse not *stipid me* any ways i will be putting up pics tonight and you'll see the horrid thing i've been talking about. It still hurts a lot As for the res
