  1. I had a perplexing experience with a chemical exfoliant, and months later I'm still not sure what was going on with my skin. I've dealt with acne for years, and I've come to the conclusion that it's partly hormonal and partly due to genetically oily skin and large pores. Anyway, several months ago I started using The Ordinary's AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution because I wanted to try chemical exfoliation. (At the time, I didn't realize I should gradually introduce my skin to chemical exfoliants

    7 Months

    From the album: AHA & Retinol

    So it's been about 7 months since I started my new skin chair regimen. The physical pitted scars are still prevalent, but so much of the hyperpigmentation is gone. So much better than where I started last year!

    Week 4

    From the album: AHA & Retinol

    One month has gone by and I'm seeing some progress here and there! I'm changing my regimen slightly, as mentioned in my blog, and hope to see continuing success and good results.
  4. So one month of the AHA and Retinol usage has come to pass. I haven't missed any applications and I'm feeling good about my decisions to do this. I'm still not sure what kind of results I'm seeing, nor am I confident I will ever be rid of the pitted/rolling acne scars or the occasional break out. But! I will definitely take softer skin, less turn around between pimple appearances, and a somewhat more even skin tone of that happens to be what I get out of it. My mother, who anyone can tell h

  7. Summer is coming and the situation is not fine, so I decided to change my regimen for the last time. If the situation doesn't change, I will stop to use all these stupid creams. My new regimen: Every day (twice a day) I will use a Cleanser with 1% of Benzoyl Peroxide Every Morning I will apply a moisturizer (Sebium Hydra) For the nights: twice a week I will apply clindamycin 1% gel three times a week I will apply tretinoin 0.05% twice a week I will apply Sebium Global (a cream with
  8. I'm sorry I haven't posted about the past few days. I didn't have time to access the internet this weekend. I'll just quickly summarize how my skin's been doing: Day 25: Again, flaky skin. Even though I was in a van for about 10 hours, I insisted on wearing makeup the entire day. There were travel videos to worry about and such. I bought Tarte's Maracuja Miracle Foundation the day before, which is a liquid. The woman selling me the product was successful in convincing me that liquid f
  9. From the album: 24th week!

    Ok so this was always my bad side. Glad to say its been improving very well.
  10. Hellu ;P I have battled severe inflamed acne for about 10 years, loading up on Benzoyl Peroxide for half of my life. Now that I just finished the teen years, the infected pimples are less (not extinct, just less) and I am left with HUGE PORES, HYPERPIGMENTATION, and SKIN-COLOURED CLOGGED BUMPS. These seem to be the hardest to treat, but I will not give up! Goal: Clear Skin Time: 3 months Products: Purity cleanser from Philosophy (night + day) Help Me retinol treatment f
  11. After a successful year of nearly banishing acne it appears to be back the form is moderate to mild down from severe after roaccutane four years ago. I think the main cause of the flair up was a switch from panoxyl 2.5% gel to quinoderm 5% it's made my skin irritable and unpredictable I actually switched ahead and still have a tube of in date panoxyl left so have switched to that currently using neutrogena producs oil free and spot free ha! Moisturiser and cleanser as well. I also use Paul

  14. OK. wow i'v been gone awhile, I honestly have no excuse except I'v been busy. My face is looking really good right now, alittle red because I kind of went at it removing blackheads lastnight (I know, I;m ashamed of myself. Really!) Plus i'v been useing a AHA cream from...I can't remember the name of the place..But its natural and so good. It kind of burns my skin at first but it helps with my acne like you wouldnt believe! I put it on at night under lotion on my lerrosett rejuvinating serum an
  15. So its been a couple of weeks since i wrote last (Actually posted inbetween but got erased by the hacker incident) I've pretty much been going through a re-intial breakout with AHA. Had quite a few little pimples on my acne-prone forehead which came and went in a couple of days (still left little scars though...) I also got a few on my jaw/underjaw/borderline neck. I never use to get acne here, well rarely, but since i tried lemon juice, drinking 1 whole lemon a day, my jaw has been breaking
  16. Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to use both AHA and BHA together. I use glycolic acid at night and I was wondering if I could use salicylic acid 2% gel in the morning or if it would be too much? Also, I'm a woc (black) and I have ice pick scarring, is there any other procedure except TCA peels that is suitable for my skin? I don't want to experience hyper or hypopigmentation. (I do not have any existing pimples right now, just a little hyperpigmentation and ice pick scarring)
  17. If I am only using the benzoyl peroxide on certain areas of my face, do I do the same with aha? For instance I am not putting the BP on my forehead at all , will I be putting the aha on my forehead once I start using it?
  18. Hey, I’m 14 years old supposedly struggling with hormonal acne. I’ve got spots and blackheads on my forehead, acne scars on my cheeks, whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and clogged pores pretty much everywhere. I’ve considered using AHA and BHA peels by The Ordinary as I’ve heard chemical peels really benefit your skin. I was wondering if they really work or if they make things worse. Has anyone tried chemical peels or are there alternatives?
  19. Hi there, I'm looking for clarification when it comes to clearing my dark spots. I bought the acne.org treatment (cleanser, BP treatment, moisturizer and AHA). I don't currently have any active acne other than little bumps that showed up as you see in the pictures below while using the BP. All of the dark spots that I currently have on my face, chest and back are due to excessive picking. (Although I know I shouldn't, it's due to anxiety that I pick at the pimples I would get). What I'd like
  20. Hi I was just wondering about how to properly use AHA. I am currently not using the regimen or any other acne treatments, but lately my acne has been coming back again. After using accutane my acne got better and my skin cleared up, but since September of this year I have been getting pimples again leaving me With dark spots once they are healed. So after Reading so much good reviews about AHA I want to give it a try too. So my question is, is it okay to use it without using the regimen, and if
  21. Hi, I have been on the regimen for almost three months. My skin is slowly improving, but it's definitely not clear yet. While I am aware that my skin will continue to be dry until it adjusts, it's a bit frustrating. I use Jojoba oil in my moisturizer at night, but not in the mornings. While it's helped the dryness, it's still hard to deal with and prevents me from wearing makeup. Would the next step be to add in the AHA+? I own a bottle of it but have not used it yet because I am very busy and
  22. Hi, I've been on the regimen for over 3 months now, and I'm still struggling with flaking. They're always there when I get up in the morning, and it takes a lot of spot picking to make sure none surface throughout the day. I know what you're going to say: use aha! I use Aha every night as my nightly moisturizer, and still there is no difference. I lather jojoba oil over my face after I cleanse in the morning, and before applying Bp. Is there some mistake I'm making that permits these flakes to e
  23. Hey there, I've been on the regimen for a month and a half now, and a few days ago I started using AHA. Before this, my skin wasn't really dry/red from the BP any longer. Since I've begun using the AHA, it's flaking so much and is quite dry, too, even though I'm using the moisturiser too. Is this just initial drying? Also, what would you recommend is the best way to apply AHA?
