Skin Update #2 | My start with #Pocketderm #Curology

I last updated you all with photos of my skin's progress on August 27th, and since then my face has really been on a rollercoaster. My skin started to improve, then got worse, and finally got bad enough where I started to look at other options. I've seen a lot of mention of Pocketderm over the past year, but only recently thought that it would be worthwhile for me. So I buckled down and ordered as my face progressively got worse.
Before I go further with this update, here are some photos I took of my face on September 15th. This is difficult for me, because even after not caring for my face for over a month straight, it never looked this bad. This is the day my first Pocketderm prescription arrived, I started applying it this very night after I took these photos.

In all my years of adolecense I never remembered my face being so ugly, so blemished, or so painful. So why would I share this with you? Because you would never believe how quickly my skin has turned around after starting Pocketderm. I'm skeptical at quick recoveries and magic claims, espcially when a company warns that it may take up to 8 weeks to see results, but this is something you guys need to see to believe. The next set of photos is from this morning, just 3 DAYS after starting Pocketderm.

My skin is already healing, my cystic acne is nearly gone, my skin is no longer painful, and my blackheads are continuing to disappear again. My skin has completely turned around in a matter of days!

My skin and I still have a lot of work to get through, but this was such a massive improvement in such a short amount of time that I had to share this with you right away!

What is Pocketderm Curology?
UPDATE: Curology is now Pocketderm! Due to it's succress and growth, Pocketderm has renamed itself as of 9/30/2015 to Curology to represent it's caring, curing, and healing it provides for its' patients.
