Day 24: Flaky And Caky

Okay, this isn't good.  My skin is SO flaky!  I look like a scaly reptile!  The worst part is, I'm clearing incredibly, but I feel like that's because my skin is so dry that nothing can live on my face.  It's so dry, I can hardly even smile like a normal person.  3 pumps of moisturizer didn't even work for long.
 
I tried exfoliating with jojoba oil, which was suggested on the boards, but of course it didn't work once I washed my face.  This is insane.  I don't know what to do!  I have to wear makeup this weekend!  How am I going to do that?  AH!
 
So lost.




eeeeek. when I got flaky I toned down the amount of BP used! I also used a supplemental moisturizer on top of the regimen's own moisturizer (it's a cream by eucerin). it really helped out and I stopped using the eucerin cream when my skin finally could handle the BP.

Can you add tretinoin cream to your regimen. It really exfoliates dead skin.

Nice!  I haven't heard many things about eucerin, glad that worked for you!  Luckily mine's calmed down a bit....phew.  :o

I actually have a tube of tretinoin cream I never finished, but that's because it was too irritating to my skin.  I know people who use it for 6+ months have success with it, but I wanted to try the complete Regimen first and then use tretinoin if I'm not happy with the results.
