Seems like your BP is migrating to your eye area. It does happen. Try not to get BP or moisturizer near the eye area (lid and under eye area) and that should correct the problem. Look at Dan's tutorials for reference. Good luck!
Try eliminating AHA all together for a bit and see how your skin reacts. At times AHA can make your skin very irritated, especially during the early stages of the regimen. Stick to the first 3 steps religiously and see how your skin reacts. Personally, I still experience redness and I've been doing the regimen for over 3 years.
What is your current regimen? Usually when you step down your BP dosage, you can experience huge breakouts. Also, I know for myself, hormone fluctuations (huge cystic breakouts) or too much alcohol can severely affect how my skin looks (dryness/redness). Try documenting everything you've done since you've been experiencing the breakouts and usually you can find out what the culprit is. It's good to reevaluate your daily activities to see if there is a possible link between it and your breakouts. I would also suggest switching moisturizers depending on the time of year. My skin reacts best to Dan's moisturizer, but during the harsh NY winters, my skin needs a little extra to stay hydrated. Also, don't forget the power of drinking water to stay internally balanced. Hydration from within shows on the outside, so don't underestimate it's power. Best of luck and let us know how it's going...
Hello... I'm a long time regimen user, 3 years and counting, and I have had the same type of reaction. What type of products are you using? It may be a reaction to one of the products you're using or part of the purging process. Please be sure to check out the regimen approved products and try not to deviate from the exact regimen steps. With time and consistency, you eventually will have clear skin. Let us know how it's going.
Hi there.... It's not uncommon to have your breakouts return if you don't continuously use the regimen. Unfortunately, some people, like myself, never cease having acne and when the regimen gets us clear, we tend to slack and stop using it. I, like yourself, learned the hard way that the regimen is the only thing that keeps us clear and we'll probably need to continue using it for many years to come. Anyway, have you taken the clear skin assessment? Perhaps you are neglecting a step in the regimen. Also, since you just started the regimen again in the beginning of March, you're only in week 3 and will still experience breakouts. The breakouts will subside but you have to be patient and consistent. Eventually they will subside and you'll have beautiful skin once again. Good luck!
Try not to skip days and find replacements with the regimen products as soon as possible. Even one week off the regimen can put you back at the beginning and you'll need to start the process all over again.
Unfortunately, I've never found a mattifying product that worked well as a moisturizer. The only thing that helped to balance my skin and not produce a lot of oil was quitting drinking alcohol and drinking tons of water... I just keep tissues with me for the occasional blotting and go about my business...
Bare Minerals girl here! It's the only makeup that doesn't break me out whether or not I'm on the regimen... I'd do some research on mineral makeup brands and ask for samples to see what works best for your skin.. There are many great natural and organic makeup lines as well that are also viable options. Just try to stay clear of brands that lists ingredients that are a no no for clear skin... Good luck!!
The good thing about restarting is that the adjustment period is shorter and you clear much faster than when you initially began using the regimen. I know from experience. So I'd definitely suggest incorporating AHA a month into restarting the regimen and you should be good from there.. Good luck!
