There are even people email me directly how to solve the problem. To allow the hair grown longer is a good solution only some parts of body. Some people couldn’t have beard because that would make yourself look older. Some people can be a style anyway.
To do laser is expensive and hurt. That need to be done 6 – 8 times before the hair gone.
Another solution which is good enough and you can afford is Cream, Lotion or Liquid that help to exfoliate skin.
Reviews said it helps a lot. After reading and study about skin exfoliate we learnt that AHA’s and BHA’s can helps alleviate the razor bump problem. People that have those problem also have ingrown hair because the hair after shave can’t grow to the skin surface. Exfoliant help this. There are also said you might get some irritation from skin exfoliant.
Anyway, Let’s try them. Find a product with great formula and have right pH (4 – 7) so that the acid would work.
After 1 and half year, I stopped oral prescription (Roaccutane) 2 times and start it over again. But I still keep my daily routine. I change moisturizer and sun block to the other that not so thick for my face. I chose to use Giffarine SPF 70 PA+++ only on the day I go out side and use moisturizer some times only.
I changed my routine a bit that I use only pure water to wash my face on the date that I don’t use Sun block. After wash with pure water for 3 days I then wash with Acne aid on the next day. (I wash my face twice a day)
Also I add 2% liquid BHA in my routine. I use it after clean my face in the morning and evening. This really help to clear black head and dead skin. Then I scrub my face once every other week. I actually use Benzac only when I have breakout once in a while.
So sorry for stopped making the diary. I have been so stressed and busy with economic disaster and jobs so I lacked of update anything in my life. Here now I come back. Now I wanted to summary my story a little before end it.
I still confirm that who has the same problem as mine, cysts acne, should see doctor and ask them if they can prescribe Iso-tretinoin or formly call Accutane (branded as Roaccutane, Acnotin or the other brand)
At first, I use only Penoxyl (Benzoyl Peroxide) and Acne aid (Liquid cleanser) and use Sun block sometimes.
I would say this is the best solution. Except Penoxyl is too strong for my face skin. So I suggest anyone has sensitive skin should use only water based of bezoyl peroxide. There are several brand in market. I suggest Benzac AC 2.5 or 5 from Galderma. Continue reading “Acne Diary: Chapter 5, Close To The Goal”
10 days later… I have been very tired with acne, irritation skin, and scars. These things give me a stressfulness also.
Now my face is a little clear up. Do you see that I smile a little? hehe. Please remember that I avoided other face product. I only took medicine and dabbed the acne cream on my face.
Here are a list to remind you again.
1. 20mg. Isotretinoin (Roaccutane) as a oral drug
2. 5% Benzoyl peroxide (Panoxyl 5) as an external gel
3. 0.025% Tretinoin (Ratin-A) as an external cream
4. Acne Aid Cleansing Gel.
After I wrote about Roaccutane, There are so many responds and questions. My previous experience doesn’t full fill your thought? Here what I did.
After I stopped the medicine for six months, acne come back and enjoy living on my face. Due to I move back to Thailand and the weather is hot and a lot of humidity, my face was getting worse once again.
This time I also make my acne diary to record every detail and photos.
May 3rd, 2008
