A Helpful Little Regimen "Handbook" (two parts: read first two posts)

Hi there!

Thanks for the all the great information.

I have been on the regiment for 10 months and I had to stop using it. My acne disappeared after about 3 - 4 months, and I could also see some results just after a week. The red marks has never seemed to disappear. I had a really really heavy and long time break out on my face for at least 6 months. So I was so happy and relieved when the breakouts stopped after 3 - 4 months. Flakiness wasn't a problem after the same amount of time.

My biggest problem on the regiment has been two things.

1: I live in Norway, and the winter here is really cold. So using the regiment made my face more than red. I got super red. The skin around my eyes where really pale. And the marks from my acne where almost blue. I looked really really bad. And my face got really dry as well. And as I have read, there is a lot of water in the moisturizer so when it was - 20 C, it felt like my face was about to crack up. What could I have done in a situation like that?

2: As it is summer now, my face hasn't stopped being red. People comment my red face, and it almost feels like my skin can't handle the products. I started to use the BP only at night, but still using the rest both day and night, because of the redness.

A couple of weeks ago i stopped using the regiment because of the redness and went over to use some organic farmer oils and cremes. People started to comment that my skin looked so much more fresh and healthy, so I didn't want to go back to the regiment. Then I could suddenly see black spots develop on my forehead. I got very oily in the T zone, and got spots on those areas as well on my neck and under my chin. I am freaking out as this is happening right now.

Is the reason for that because my skin needs to get used to the change? Or is it "the old" acne coming back? Is it really necessary to use the regiment for such a long time? Acne is usually a periodic thing.. it hasn't come to stay? I feel that the regiment does a great job, at the same time as I feel that is really harsh to the skin..! When to stop using it? And what to do when the skin never stops to get red? I even met a girl that laughed at my red face. That is not a good memory or feeling to have.

So a couple of days ago, I went back on using the regiment. And from having some spots here and there I now have spots everywhere, and are back to being a lobster. Horrible combination. It wasn't so bad the first time.. What happened? And what should I do now?!

I don't want to go outside or meet people or anything..! I am really frustrated and sad..!

(PS: I read you Q&A, and you mentioned wrinkles etc. and you said that it wouldn't have an effect. Well I have to say that my face have "changed" and looks a bit older now than before I started the regiment. More than that I am 10 months older. Its like my skin on my face is zagging a bit more, and wrinkles on my forehead and around my mouth is a lot more visible. I have a feeling that the regiment has been a part of that. I don't know if it is true.. but I can see it on pictures from before I started.. and it is only 10 months ago. In that case it would suddenly age more that usual. And thats a bit weird.)

What is your opinion on Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Lotion? I'm thinking of trying it out, but I don't want to breakout. And have you tried the Lac-Hydrin Five Lac-Hydrin Five Lotion?
