    Now after almost 2 years, I'm back here. 
    It is also almost 2 years I left The regimen, not because it didnt work, but because I could not adapt my current lifestyle to religously doing the regimen twice daily.

    This past few months my lifestyle have been so haywire ( working 24 hr straight, every other day oncall, eating not so healthy meal and stress ). So do my face, it has become the worst acne I could ever have. Every month there would be big red cystic acne, which took weeks to subside only to leave dark red scars later. The current acne that I'm having now is the worst, it almost look like a carbuncle.

    Now I'm having dilemma, I've took antibiotics for plus minus 2 weeks, but it seem like have no effect at all.
    Should I restart the regimen again? I dnt think I could commit to it like how it should. 

    I'm starting to loose faith that my skin will ever get better. I'm almost 28 now. Should I just do not care about my acne? No need to bother to find solutions for my acne?

    Just a little update.
    I'm on my 6th month of The Regimen.
    Super happy with my skin, can freely touch them, boost my confidence.

    Since 3 months ago, I modified my routine, by just applying BP for only for PM part. I also start using scrub, which I've incorporated it gradually. My personal opinion, it doesn't do any big changes to my skin. I just use the scrub because I have it right before starting the regimen. The scrub that I use is St. Ives Green Tea Scrub, which nowadays I've been using it daily in the morning. It's good to remove the regimen residue, and it has a lovely smell.

    I've also has try using mask, Deep Cleansing Face Mask from Simple. Again I don't really think it making big changes to my skin. But I still love to use it. I apply it once in 3-4 days.

    Briefly what my routines are,

    Routine since 3 months ago:
    AM 1. Cleanser- St. Ives Green Tea Scrub
    2. Neutrogena Moisturizer
    for Combination Skin.
    3. Almay smart shade spf 15 if needed

    PM 1. Cleanser- Acne.org Cleanser
    2. Acne.org 2.5 % BP
    3. Acne.org Moisturizer alternately
    with Acne.org AHA+ Moisturizer with
    drops of Jojoba oil

    It s been 3 months already. It s been a journey, especially for the first month. And today I am glad that I choose to stick to the regimen. My skin almost always clear of acne. 1 or 2 of zits popping up would never stress me out like before.

    Now my focus is to slowly and safely try to fade away the scars. For the moment I will just stick to exfoliant like AHA+ and once in 2-3 days scrubbing my face with St. Ives Green Tea Scrub. Maybe in the future I'll try dermaroller or chemical peeling. I've tried before The Regimen, and it's not so bad.

    So I'm entering 10th week of my regimen.
    From the last 1 weeks, my skin has been at it best! I can freely touch my skin, no more big painful bumps. I want also give credit to Acne.org Aha+ as it has been included to my regimen since last 1 month. Now what left on my face are just scars, which is hyperpigmented one, so in the eyes of other, it look like acne.
