Modifying The Regimen...are These Products Fine?

4 posts in this topic

I use the same products both AM and PM, except in the PM I remove my makeup with baby oil on a cotton ball.

I cleanse with Mary Kay Timewise 3-in-1 cleansing bar, then apply Neutrogena On-the-Spot treatment once my face is dry. after about 5 minutes, the treatment dries, so I then apply aloe vera gel mixed with a little bit of glycerin. I used to use just aloe vera gel, but my face was out-of-control dry, even when I added jojoba oil. turns out glycerin mixes better with the aloe vera gel.

I'm wondering if the soap I use is too irritating? here are the ingredients:

Sodium Palmitate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Water, Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Stearic Acid, Camellia Oleifera Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Extract, Cucumber Extract, Burdock Extract, Hops Extract, Meadow sweet Extract, Hydrocotyl Extract, Coneflower Extract, Maltodextrin, Bentonite, Sodium Chloride, PEG-6, Butylene Glycol, Palmitic Acid, PEG-4, Lactose, Pentasodium Pentetate, Palm Kernel Acid, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Cellulose, Lauramine Oxide, Disodium EDTA, C9-15 Alkyl Phosphate, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Methylparaben, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Titanium Dioxide, Chromium Hydroxide Green, Ultramarines

Skin Regimen:

Cleanse with (CVS brand equivalent of) Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser

Treat with Dan's BP treatment

Moisturize with aloe vera gel mixed with a little glycerin

I'll add jojoba oil when I feel my skin needs it.

I wait a whole 15-20 minutes before applying moisturizer after any acne treatment. To make it easier I actually just moisturize at a different time of day. I usually apply treatments at night, moisturize in the morning.

Do you use the gel benzoyl peroxide? the one I use is in cream form and dries fast. I think Dan says on the Regimen page to moisturize 5 minutes after applying a cream BP. even though I used to have oily skin, now it's been rather dry. I could definitely not wait until later in the day to moisturize! gasp.gif
