So all...just a little update! The regimen is still working for me. Here I am, recently in Paris (with another orger you might recognize =P )! ^_^

I do have a question for you all:

Have you noticed your skin becoming a bit more...aged...I cannot think of a better way to put it, as you continue to use the Regimen? I don't peer at my skin too closely but sometimes I swear I am getting premature wrinkles. I wasn't aware that BP could cause that!

I am curious as to your experiences.

I've only used BP here and there since my skin just doesn't seem to tolerate it, but I've read about people experiencing the same thing. I haven't come across any concrete scientific info, but the theory I'm most familiar with is BP causes free radicals, and therefore accelerates aging. I've also read the side effects go away when you stop using it, but that's not exactly practical for BP users!

Perhaps you could find a product that sits well with your skin for the purpose of anti-aging? I have sensitive skin myself, and it's always a balancing act between products that treat acne & products that are good for the skin (though there are many products out there that do both), BP & HA, SA and aloe, etc. I've been using niacinamide gel (Metazene) for about 3 months or so now, it's antiinflammatory/antioxidant, and there's research indicating it may be good for reducing oil, and just being plain good for the skin! The formulation is really simple, which is another thing I love, less is more when it comes to sensitive skin! If the wrinkles are something you want to treat, I'm sure there's a product out there for you that'll work great with the regimen.

Another thing that works is facial massages. You could take a generous amount of regimen moisturizer and give yourself a facial massage. The increased circulation brings a number of benefits, and it's relaxing! Lastly, imo some wrinkles aren't too bad! Laugh lines and crows feet may just mean you're that much happier than the average person :)

There probably is a more technical answer, but my first guess is that dryness usually leads to wrinkles. Even though regimen users compensate with a gallon of moisturizer, that's still my guess. (I mean this in a top-off-the-head guess, not really my final answer)

I'm currently using BP too, and I've been wondering the same thing! While my skin might be clearing, I've been wondering if it's going to have any negatives later...wrinkles the main concern.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure there's been no long-term studies on the effects of using as much 2.5% BP as Dan's Regimen reccomends, and it's effects on skin quality and appearance. If it exists I'll delete this with an apology! But I'm throwing it out there. If I come across anything more I'll let you know Candice. Posted Image

Thank you for your input you two. I know my reply was a long time coming, but I was away from the org for a bit!

My concerns seemed to have cleared up. I think with the weather becoming warmer (and more humid), my dry skin/appearance issues have cleared up, so to speak! haha.

I hope you all are doing well and I still check in, so feel free to ask any questions about the regimen that you wish!

wow your skin looks amazing from when you posted your first pictures. It really shows that you have come a long way and you inspire me to stick with this. I have been on the regimen for about 2 weeks now and getting a little upset at times, but you helped me feel better about sticking to it. I do have a question though, throughout your acne journey, did you ever pick at your blemishes or skin? at all?

Thank you and it makes me smile that I inspire you to stick to it! I know I had my doubts at times as well, especially when I was only a few weeks in. No, I never really picked at my blemishes except to pop the ones that would have burst on contact. As for picking my skin, I did pick at the dryness for a while. My skin had never been dry and flaky before so it really bothered me. Sometimes I still get occasional dryness and I have to fight the urge not to pick it off.

Hey did you make up in the last photos? your skin looks really amazing ! Love it ! i hope it will work out well for me =)

Hello there! =) And no I am not wearing makeup in those photos...or any of them except for one or two! And thank you so much...how long have you been using the products? I hope it works for you as well! Stick with it! ^_^

You guys are just too cute togther.  Glad the regimen has worked for you.  It gives me hope that when i start in a few weeks it might work for me too


It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end.  Here's to finding my end.

 

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
