  1. Gee, every single one of your posts are such debbie downers. Lighten up a little pal.
  2. Red Face 2 Years Into Regimen

    Thank you all for the suggestions and tips, as far as my face goes I have a quick update: Switched from a gel based cleanser to a foaming based. I am now using CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser morning and night. My face feels noticeably less 'tight' between cleansing and applying BP and I don't have a beard of flakes. Face is a little less red, I've only been using it for three days so the judgement is still out on it. For a moisturizer I think I am going to switch from my trusty DML lotion to a aloe vera based cream. Does anyone have any suggestions as far as that goes? I think it could go a long way in calming my face.  Can you send me the link? Can't seem to find it.
  3. Red Face 2 Years Into Regimen

    I don't know if my face is ready to go cold turkey on BP. Afraid that would cause some massive breakouts, took me long time to get to where I am now. I like the idea of aloe vera, I will look into that.
  4. It's been nearly two years since I started the regimen, and no, this is not a success story (bummer, right?). Here's my problem, my face is STILL red. The difference in skin tone between my face and my neck is super obvious. Neck skin is a slight tan and my face is a tomato. Gross. Last week I dropped from 1 pump morning and night to just under half a pump. Very slight reduction in redness. I'm still suffering from acne but I've "given up" on being 110% clear all the time, the regimen for the time being gets me close enough (I'm a 17 y/o male whose parents had acne...can't complain to much). What I want to know is has anyone been on the regimen this long and is still suffering from redness?  Even if you're not a regimen user, does anyone have any tips, ticks, or products to help tone down the redness?
