  1. You don't have to do it all over your face. I do because I'm acne prone on all areas of the face. You can do it as a preventative measure on other parts, just to be sure you won't break out on them. It's up to you though.
  2. Yes, you're supposed to do the Regimen before going to bed, which includes washing your face.
  3. Alternative (drugstore) products
  4. Do you mean washing them off directly after you apply them? Or washing them off from the morning application?
  5. Chest Acne

    I don't think the medication causes scars, no matter how long you use it. Scarring is a natural process that can be avoided only by preventing acne. It's looking better, good luck
  6. How long did it take for YOU to see your results

    It was a few years ago for me, but I think 1–2 months. Don't get discouraged if your skin becomes worse even though it seems to be getting better.
  7. I don't think the article mentions it in particular, but it's implied when they talk about Asian skin. I skimmed the article and found specifically that East Asian skin had the weakest skin barrier, when compared to other ethnicities. Not sure if Pakistan is in East Asia.
  8. Don't know what to do anymore

    Hi. What about the Regimen here?

    Good luck, Daniella
  10. Had enough

    Good luck

    How long should you wait before doing the Regimen again? Twelve hours is ideal. Also, I wouldn't use oil to cleanse the face since it's not soluble in water and won't be rinsed off. That prevents the treatment from absorbing as well as it could. It's best to use a cleanser, which is a detergent. Detergents by nature are soluble in both water and oil, so they're able to remove oil from your face and be rinsed off.

    I'd suggest using BP twice per day but layering over it a tinted moisturizer in the morning. You can create one buy mixing water-based foundation (Almay smartshade skintone-matching makeup) with your moisturizer. This is what I did during my senior year of high school.

    Do you do the Regimen exactly as outlined? Any products? This happened to me also. I'm sorry.
  14. Help finding store brand?

    BP is the most important thing. I meant that BP from the store was far inferior to BP, but you can get the store version if that's all you have access to. Don't go higher than 5% in strength, though. Cleaning the skin doesn't do anything for acne. The purpose of it is to prime the skin for BP so that it absorbs better.
  15. Regimen and Accutane?

    I wouldn't recommend Accutane for that. The Regimen can clear that right up.
  16. Makeup advice

    I used the Almay makeup. I found that applying it once I finished doing the Regimen caused chunks of skin to peel. This happened because when you're on the Regimen, your skin easily and readily peels because of the treatment, so that wasn't an option for me. I then started to mix it with the moisturizer to create a tinted moisturizer, and it glided on much more easily. Plus it's better for acne-prone skin since you're not applying it straight. Wasn't full coverage, but I was okay with that since my skin looked more or less normal.
  17. My skin got red from, Help!

    If you were allergic, you'd probably know. Did you experience swelling?
  18. Regimen and Accutane?

    Not both at the same time Each is very effective, so it would be unnecessary. Plus the symptoms would be extreme, so you probably would end up giving up on both.
  19. My Acne History

    I know what this is like as I had to deal with it when I was in high school. In your other entry you mentioned a Eucerin moisturizer which I recommend: Eucerin Replenishing Face Cream 5% Urea. Best moisturizer to use if you're on the Regimen. I also have to order online, but it's worth it.
  20. New formula

    What product are you talking about? The moisturizer?
  21. Prevention of bulk-orders probably is the reason. How about ordering from their Amazon or eBay? You should be able to buy more of the same product per package you receive.
