I'm going into my second week of treatment and was wondering if anyone experienced a prickly looking rash.My skin is very tight,itchy and slightly red.Any insight would greatly be appreciated thanks!
Skin type: Combo / Acne Prone
Type of acne: Mild/Moderate
I decided to use this as an alternative to the expensive facial treatments I was getting, and after about a month on this product my skin is almost 100% clear. I only bought the cleanser and BP because their moisturizer contains alcohol and oil which I know does not work on MY skin. The added alcohol in moisturizers from MY experience burns my skin while leaving my face dry, it also creates dark spots around the corners of my mouth. The key is finding things that work for YOU! I'm currently using Neutrogena oil free moisturizer which is free of alcohol and more, I also use the Neutrogena oil free sunscreen. So far this combination in addition to being dairy free has been working wonders. I also switched my foundation to CoverFX which is for sensitive, acne prone skin and that has been amazing also, I highly recommend this product.
For the first time in my life, I can honestly say that this treatment provides the best results I have ever seen. I have tried everything. I used to have a cleanser and a treatment and a lotion. Changing one thing at a time or using just one of the three for sometimes weeks at a time to figure out what does and doesn't work "long term" was wasting so much time, and took so much of my money and effort! With this treatment, I can stop searching. Thank you for giving me the key to clarity!
I'm new to the Acne.org regimen - it's been about ten days for me. Initially I had slight itchiness when I started using the BP but it was really minimal and not really bothersome. I was concerned because I tried Proactiv a few years ago and woke up the next day after the very first application and my was face was very swollen, patchy, itchy, and burned like crazy. It was unbearable! I consider myself to have sensitive skin and am mindful of that when I try new products. I'll also say that I have mild to moderate acne. I can usually manage with a spot treatment but my main issue is hyper-pigmentation. I have a medium brown complexion and when I say my skin (all over my body) scars/bruises easily I mean it. It's super annoying. That said, I wanted to try acne.org because I heard about the amazing results people had been getting. Like I said my response to the BP was fine. I followed the regimen as instructed...until today. Friday marked a week of usage for me. I was fine with the one application of BP a day. When I upped it to twice a day Saturday I almost instantly notice by skin was super dry, tight, and chapped looking. I was, and still am, disappointed and frustrated. I realize that maybe I responded that way for a few reasons: (1) the acne.org regimen calls for A LOT of BP, it seems like too much , (2) Also, perhaps because my acne is on the mild side, it was too much with the twice a day application of the BP, (3) It's likely that in addition to the increase in frequency of the application I applied too much of the BP. I won't write the BT off completely because it did clear up a few pimples I had on my face. However, I have decided to stop the regimen until I can better manage the moisture in my skin. I just cannot deal with the dryness. I'm hoping with discontinuation of the products and applying a liberal amount of a good moisturizer a few times a day my skin will regulate. Once that's done I will begin the acne.org regimen again but with only one BP application a day and a very small (pea sized) amount of it. I will slowly increase the dosage but with a much more watchful eye. I want to give it a try so I can work my way up to be able to use the glycolic acid since I mainly want to address my hyper-pigmentation. Any tips of restore the moisture in my skin? Did anyone else experience this and how did you manage? How did your skin react when you introduced the AHA? Thanks in advance!
Guys acne treatments dry out your skin its normal just try to moisturize your skin
I have normal, non-sensitive skin. I've had acne for about 4 years, and I feel so dumb for not having tried BP beforehand. Now, as you people may already know, this stuff kills the bacteria deep within your pores that causes acne. If bacteria is one of the main causes for your acne, this should positively affect your skin.
I got BP from acne.org because it is cheap (there is A LOT of it, so that's why it seems expensive, but it's actually cheaper in the long run than buying multiple small tubes) and there are not too many ingredients.
I use BP as a spot treatment and after getting acne.org's BP, also apply it all over my face really lightly. For me, BP takes effect immediately in all kinds of acne: whiteheads, inflamed pimples, cystic acne, you name it. I feel like it worked best on whiteheads, though.
I also use BP to prevent acne; e.g. I always get a zit over my mouth once a month around my period, but after I began to apply BP really lightly over the area like once in three days, I haven't gotten any since then.
Since using BP, I have gotten a significantly lower number of flare-ups, as new pimples do not make it to the point where it starts to become inflamed. BP usually kills it as it rises or most likely prevents it before it forms.
I personally don't think you need to use as much as acne.org tells you to; that might be overly irritating and very drying.
ANYWAY, definitely try Benzoyl Peroxide if you haven't, even if it's not from acne.org! I started off with the cheap CVS 2.5% one to test it out. It really makes a difference and I'm seeing hope for clear skin. I've never been so happy with how much my skin is improving. It kills acne bacteria. It just makes sense to try. I seriously cannot understand why I haven't. If I could go back in time, I would hand myself a tube of BP before I got all these scars.
I started the regimen last week and I do see my face clearing up but my face looks dirty. My skin texture looks weird and patchy because the dirt and peeling from the benzoyl peroxide. I know I'm not suppose to exfoliate and I should wait a month for the aha+ but my complexion looks horrible, my face looks another color than my body. I want to know if i can exfoliate with sugar and honey to scrub the dead skin off.
It's the beginning of 2 weeks using the full regime and my face has cleared beautifully but I'm noticing my face is now darker than the rest of my skin tone.. I have a Olive skin tone so it's not like my face doesn't turn red when irritated... Contemplating whether I should continue with the treatment. Has anyone else experience this??
