Once A Day?
Posted 06 May 2012 - 08:24 PM
About a month ago, I switched over to spot treating with the BP in the morning instead of all over and doing all over at night. My skin still looks good, I have two or three active pimples, but they clear up easier. The regimen has really been getting to me to lately, mostly because as the weather has been warmer the moisturizer has been shining and making me look sweaty. On top of that I have noticed that when I exercise my face becomes very red and almost burns, I was thinking this was from the BP/Moisturizer in my pores leaving. It takes about an hour for the redness to go down after I shower.
What I am considering doing is doing the regimen once a day, i.e
Taking a Shower as needed, washing face with lukewarm water
I am wondering if anyone has done this and what have been the effects. I think this would make me a lot happier since I wouldn't have moisturizer all over my face all day. Also I am wondering has anyone ever gotten off the regimen. I find that I get acne in places I never used to such as my nose, and I am just wondering since I was very clear for a period before going on the regimen, maybe the regimen is causing me to breakout.

I decided to try using it only once per day (in the evening) to see if it would still work for me. Luckily it did and for the last few years I have only being doing the regimen late in the evening before I go to bed. I know this won't work for everyone and the regimen is supposed to be done twice per day every day but you could perhaps try decreasing it to see how your skin copes with it.

Use Stridex Sensitive pad .5% SA
My questions about this are 1) From everything I read it says to leave the stridex on the whole day and not rinse it off, but I feel like this would be very drying. 2) Can anyone recommend a good SA Cleanser that might be a little better, preferably one for sensitive skin.

- What products were you using in the morning previously?
- Can you describe in more detail about the redness you experience?
- Salicylic acid really does very little, even at 2% strength.

Today I removed the SA and just tried washing with water and moisturizing after. I found that throughout the day my skin looked really shiny/oily. Is this because I applied to much moisturizer?(which is very possibly since I am used to applying after BP), or is it because my skin is used to being dryer out by the cleanser/bp, that it is producing extra oil. I have never had oily skin.
