Quit The Regimen...skin Still Discolored.

7 posts in this topic

I've been off the regimen for several months now, and my skin is still discolored. It's like, the skin around my eyes is pale and the rest of my face is tan looking. All I've been doing is washing my face with cetaphil gentle skin cleanser. Is this because of the cleanser, or the months and months I was putting BP on my face? Will it ever go away? I'd like to keep using the cleanser because its helped keep me relatively clear...

Wow, I have the exact same problem as you. I really do wish I knew what I was getting myself into before I used it. My face is tanned (in a weird blotchy way) but the skin around my eyes and my neck for that matter are an entirely different colour. It's coming up 5 years now and it never wet away. I'm going to go for a TCA peel sometime in the future, as my last hope.

It's true for some people, not others. I'm clear just off an oral antibiotic and a cleanser now...skin is still discolored from the regimen I used to use, several months ago...

itll eventually go away, i burnt my chin with the BP once.. (put it on after using a peeling gel ._. ) and i used the regimen for about a month after that, and then later quit. i think it took up to like 6-8 months to fade away completely, its so gradual i never noticed exactly when it was gone but it does go away

Thank you, that makes me feel much better :). I'm getting microdermabrasion done soon, hoping that might help also.

I only use BP on the middle area of my face and unfortnatly I discolour, doesn't show too bad but it's noticable, it's better to live with out acne than a slightly discoloured face!


New Regimen!

Morning: 2 pumps Dan's cleanser in the shower, and "Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Hydrating Care" to moisturize, works to get me through the day without dry skin, but doesn't show, it's like there's nothing on my face, it's matt and doesn't shine.

///

Night: 2/3 pumps Dan's cleaner in the shower, using the cleanser to shave with a 2 blade generic razor, end segment finger's worth of Dan's BP, 2 pumps Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops generic, organic jojoba oil.

Sometimes just Dan's AHA+, or the usual application of Dan's BP with AHA+ on top if I'm feeling hardcore.

///

1 generic multivitamin, 30mg Zinc if the multivitamin doesn't contain it, 1/2 odorless garlic capsules, 2/3 EyeQ capsules (omega 3, 6, evening primrose oil,)

Have been on lots of different prescriptions, most successful was oxytetracycline.

New regimen!

Dove summer glow morning

AHA+ (acne.org) night!

Awaiting 20% salicylic acid gel in post for chin and nose.

Acne isn't returning after almost 2 years on the regimen

Looking for treatments for oily skin however, I have that really bad
