Well! Two weeks already eh? Here's another update:
I have continued my regimen (see above) religiously and have had no new cystic pimples. I do have a couple red zits but they are small, painless, and don't have a whitehead.
Some things i may want to mention: I've also been exercising a lot, except for a few days when i was sick. And i picked up some original Apricot Scrub. Sugar and baking soda are great but apricot scrub will probably remain an all time favorite exfoliate of mine. I wanna use it everyday because of how soft it makes the skin, but i know better.
I'm almost positive now that the Differin was just making it worse. Since i had obviously grown immune to it, all it was doing was irritating my skin. The redness was the worst. Lately it hasnt been red and irritated at all. Eating more fruits and veggies has probably played a part too. And i have to mention again the jojoba oil--great moisturizer. I think the little one oz. bottle is going to last me for months.
I guess thats it. I'm pretty excited about it. Hopefully it will continue, but if it doesn't, then at least i've had the past month to look back on. If you have any questions about my regimen or anything, feel free to ask.
