I have a combination skin. My morning skin is oily and throughout the day, there would be some flakes here and there. I use a moisturizer but not often because it might add to the oiliness. I might as well try this.

I've been searching for a while on where to post this but I guess I will start here! I've only been on the regimen for 4 weeks now but my flakiness, itchiness, and dryness is unbearable. It is only moderately flaky but when I try to put makeup on (3-5 hours after doing regimen) it looks HORRIBLE. Liquid or mineral foundation doesn't go on well and makes my face look like a reptile. I see dry patches and the color is uneven and just bad. It's disgusting and I am missing the days where I had bad acne but at least my makeup hid it and looked good! Any suggestions? I already mix 5 drops of jojoba oil with my moisturizer but I don't think it's enough. Before the regimen I used to exfoliate a lot and I think maybe my face needs it. I have the AHA but was told not to use it for a couple more weeks? Help please. I am really upset about this. Thanks so much.
I have this exact same problem!!! I've been on the Regimen (using all of Dan's products, and nothing else) for about six weeks or so now. I had moderate to severe acne, but it's really gotten better since using these products. The one HUGE problem is exactly what you described. I feel like a blotchily sunburned lizard, and it's NOT fun. It's exactly what you said. Before using the BP and everything, the make-up went on smooth, and covered up my skin. But now, I don't even know what it does. It's really frustrating!!! I've been trying to use a really gentle Neutrogena facial scrub (I don't know what it is called, I don't have it in front of me), and it's helped a little bit with the sticking out flakiness, but that's not the only problem. The rest of my skin that isn't flaking per say, looks like scales. Can anyone help us, PLEASE?!?

Hi All - old lady here, 45 years old. I use nothing but Dan's products (except for my daytime SPF) and was dry and flaky as Hell until I found this: Vegetable Glycerin. I'd never heard of it until I was at the health food store yesterday. Basically, is a clear liquid with a syrupy constancy that acts as a humectant i.e. it draws water to it. After I wash my face and put on my BP, I mix one big pump of Dan's moisturizer, 5-6 drops of jojoba oil, and 1 drop of Vegetable Glycerin in the palm of my hand and apply it to my face. For the first time in three months, when I woke up this morning my face wasn't like lizard skin. Really! I did the whole thing again with my SPF this morning and as of now (lunch time) my face is still soft! Usually I would have applied moisturizer three more times by this time. Anyway, after making this discovery I couldn't wait to write in. Hope it helps - let me know if you have any questions/comments. By the way, V.G. is non-comedogenic - I''m a psycho about that.
P.S. the lady in the health food store told my she mixes glycerin (only one drop - a little goes a long way, and if you add to much it has a "tacky" feeling) with a few drops of water and mineral foundation and uses it for her foundation. I haven't tried this yet because lately I haven't been using anything but blush, mascara and concealer.

This is probably the best advice I've ever taken to stop the dryness and flakiness. I mean, the first night I did this I was literally rubbing dry skin in the Jojoba Oil. After I washed it off I had no flakiness or dryness and my skin was SUPER smooth and more of a glow tone rather than red and bright. I've been doing it every time before I apply The Regimen and I've yet to experience any dryness of flakiness whatsoever. It's such a relief and ITS SO AWESOME!! Plus I've been using AHA and it's a friggen fantastic routine I'll tell yeah.

So I've recently just developed really itchy and dry skin on my cheek and I'm starting to think it might be because of the BP? But the thing is I've been on the Regimen for like almost 3 months now and I've been using BP for years before I started the DKR, is it possible that I've suddenly developed this sensitivity/allergic reaction to it? I'm trying not to use the BP but I'm still using the cleanser and moisturiser. :/ It's all just kind of sudden...
