Hey Mocha Family,
I am more than a week into weaning myself off of the proactive. Initially I thought of going cold turkey like the aesthetician recommended, but after careful consideration, I realized that a lot of her advice could be sales pitch. She had a line ready to sell me. I did some research online which suggests that a slow process may radically reduce my breakouts.
My plan will be drop to once a day for a month, followed by every other day for a month etc. After every two days I think I may be able to go cold turkey. I will just have to see how my face reacts.
So far, so good.
I am down to using proactive once a day and trying out some popular natural products I ordered online and purchased from a local health store. I have noticed one zit on my cheek, but wonder if it is from my new regimen or hormonal shifts that come with my period.
I will definitely keep ya'll posted!
