Clear Skin Journey: 4 Months + 2 Weeks

It’s been 4 Months and 2 Weeks on this clear skin journey! Here’s my experience from this week. Last week, I mentioned that I completely stopped using BP for 1 month. This week, I decided to reintroduce BP back into my skin care routine. The reason why is to accelerate the process of the initial breakout. Did it work? What happened? IT WORKED. The small, stubborn breakouts I had vanished by the end of the week. My skin is clear right now. For BHA and AHA, it usually takes at least a month for results depending on the condition of your skin. If you have very congested skin, it’ll take longer. Luckily for me, I didn’t have that much. My skin was pretty much clear when I began using BHA and AHA. I just wanted to improve the texture of my skin. I wanted more smoothness to it and unclog whatever is left (if there is any). I like what I’m seeing. 🙂 Since I’m done with the initial breakout (much sooner than I thought), I’m going to focus on removing acne scars and evening out my skin tone.

Here’s a break down on what I’m doing:

I chose BP 3 times a week because this stuff just works for my acne-prone skin. It cuts down the oil and kills breakouts on the spot. Or, at least gets rid of them after a day or two. I’m using BHA 2 times a week. Surprisingly, this formula and lower concentration of BHA is working better for me compared to the 4% (from the same brand). With the AHA, I’m only using it once a week. There’s absolutely no reason for me to use it more often than once. Once is good enough for now. We’ll see what happens in the next couple of weeks.

Also, this week, I tried the aspirin mask. An aspirin mask is when you crush tablets of aspirin in a bowl. Add your choice of liquid to it. I used plain water. I tried it with lemon, and my skin felt irritated. Water was what worked for me. As for the aspirin mask, it was too drying for my skin. This is coming from someone with oily skin. I stopped using the aspirin mask after a few trials. Other than that, I don’t have anything else to report. Let’s move on to the next week! I can’t believe I’m moving on to 5 months soon! Just a few weeks away! 😊😊😊

I hope this helped!

My results after 4 months + 1 week! 🙂🙂🙂

Another week without the use of BP. I’ve been without it for a month. My skin did not go through a bad breakout without it. It simply improved by each day. Everything went as planned. 🙂 I’m not going to reintroduce it back into my skin care routine any time soon. My skin doesn’t need it anymore. My focus right now is on AHA and BHA. I’ve been using them for 2 weeks. Here are my results after 2 weeks:

I went through a mild breakout during week 2 compared to week 1. The breakouts were not random. So why am I breaking out when my skin cleared up? An initial breakout from using AHA and BHA is normal. AHA exfoliates the top layers of the skin, while BHA exfoliates within the pores. What happens when the skin is chemically exfoliated (if you have acne-prone skin)? You breakout. But, the breakouts during the second week were smaller. No cysts. Just the unclogging of stubborn tiny pimples. No one else can see the tiny, stubborn pimples. Only me. With AHA and BHA, it gives the skin a softer, smoother-looking apperance. I have noticed that my skin is a ton smoother than before. The stubborn, annoying pimples are coming out, healing so quick before my eyes. I’m not happy about the initial breakout, but it was bound to happen. So far, it’s been going well. We’ll see what happens next week! 🙂

Also…

I tried to use sunblock this week. It didn’t work out. It made my skin look greasy and clogged my pores. That might’ve caused the breakouts too. I stopped using it instantly, so my skin can go back to normal. I can’t find a sunblock that works on my skin. I’m not going to use it. I’ll continue to avoid the sun and stay in the shade. My makeup has SPF. That seems to work for me. It’s better than having my pores clogged. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Is anyone going through something similar to this? They can’t use sunblock due to a negative reaction? I’ve tried tons of sunblock from many brands. For some reason, I can’t use them anymore on my face.

Another thing…

I decided to use The Ordinary AHA 3% BHA 2% Peeling Solution only once a week. Two times a week was just useless. This product does not work for me at all. I’m trying to use up what I have, haha. Check out other posts on it here:
