The most recent picture you posted looks great! Even if you're still struggling with breakouts it's clear that your skin is improving, which seems to be all we can ask for during the first couple of months on the regimen. I'm not sure where you live, but I've found that recent colder weather has been making my skin insanely dry and tight (even more so than what I was already struggling with on the regimen). Being surrounded by dry air from heaters all the time can really do a number on your skin. I really love Dan's moisturizer but I know a lot of people said they don't think it's moisturizing enough. Perhaps for the winter you could try something a little heavier and still add in the jojoba oil? I was thinking about trying Cerave but I've never used it before so I can't vouch for it. I'm a little nervous about experimenting with moisturizers though because at least I know Dan's doesn't break me out (knock on wood!).
Same for me too. I want to try a different moisturizer but I'm scared that it might mess up Dan's regimen and make me break out.
We know we do not want that. lol. I live in michigan. crazy weather! CRAZY! one day it's hot and then the other day it's freezing cold. So, yes I think the weather and heater are really drying out my skin. If you do try cerave and you like it, please lemme know
Due to me living in Canadaland the weather KILLS my neck!! I had the same problem as you with the neck dryness and I know how much it hurts! I actually bought dove intensive care moisturizer(I know it's not a recommended product, but it's the only thing that helped) which I put only on my neck. I do it after I put the bp on and am waiting for it to dry and only at night. After that I put dans moisturizer on my face and again on my neck. I also put an extra pump of dans mosturizer on my neck alone in the morning. It has totally gotten rid of the dryness and pain! I hope this helps.
I guess it would be okay to apply some other moisturizer on my neck because I dont apply bp on bottom part of my neck... I think... but i'm too scared because my skin got LOT LOT better and adding more stuff to it might make me break out. which is big nono
but thank you for your help! LOG
week 7 + 5 days
still dryness but adding more moisturizer seem to help. I always felt like 2 full pumps are too much of moisturizer but it helps dryness, so im using 2 full pumps. Two ugly acne around my lip, I don't know why i get all these breakouts around my lip
urg. urg. other than that, my skin is behaving well. I started taking zinc 30mg
and vitamin C as usual. I don't know what this will do but we will see. AND the pictures
)))))))), sorry if they are blurry or shaky, i took it with my phone camera. that's why the pictures look bad
