When I look at myself in the mirror, I can see that my face looks darker than my neck, but I always assumed that it wasn't really that noticeable. However, over the past few weeks, people keep asking me if I tanned, or they'll say that I looked more tanned, and not really in a flattering way.
I don't have the fairest skin in the world, but I'm white. The weather's getting chillier and cloudier, and as a result, I haven't been exposed to the sun very much, so I don't think it has to do with my not using SPF. I don't think that it has to do with the BP, either, since it's not really redness (although I am having some flakes, too) it's just some kind of yellowness. I'm guessing that the moisturizer's yellow color is leaving a yellow tint on my face after it dries. Anybody else experience this? Peoples' comments are starting to embarrass me, but I'm afraid of changing any of the products I'm using since the regimen has been working pretty well on my acne so far.
Should I try to find a different moisturizer? Do any of Dan's other products, such as the AHA or Jojoba oil, help against this sort of thing? Has anyone else experienced this? Please help.

i made the same experience with the bpo-regimen ( i don´t use dans produkts but follow the regimen precisely...)
in the first 2 weeks i seemed to became brown and (in my case...i´m very white) became freckles. normally i only get them when i´m in the sun and get teint so i found this very strange
now...for some reason...my skin became normal again. i think that the teint might be a sort of side effect to the bpo. always remember that your skin is very sensitive to the sun now and even a quick walk to the postbox can give you teint. that´s why you need to have spf in your moisturiser as then you get...at least...an healthy tan
but it will get less...don´t worry!

Make sure that you aren't using too much of BP , or just use it day after day
because it happened to me before and there was a brown layer on my face which made me look tanned too

I did a little research on google, and it tends to be people with naturally more pigmented skin who experience the darkening effects of BP, which is strange.
I thought it was because it made your skin more sensitive to the sun.

that being said i was using Panoxyl 2.5% and that was quite harsh so i guess it was dry skin!
wish you luck

it's the moisturizer making you look "tanned". SO! heres what i do.
use 'Olay complete 15 spf' as your moisturizer for day time use. and then use dan's moisturizer at night.
you'll be back to normal in no time at all!

I am having the same problem. I had 5 people ask me yesterday if i am spray tanning. Also, since I don't rub it on my eye area, my eyes look white compared to the rest of my face. It is not a good look! I am going to buy a different moisturizer today to see if that works....because the only thing I think that could be causing this is the yellow color of Dan's moisturizer. I will update if I notice this has made a difference.
