Just Started The Regimen

12 posts in this topic

So I had a great friend who had got me the Regimen Kit, it took me about a month to start using the Regimen, due to the fact I was scared of having a product "backfire". Like Proactive or the pill for severe acne, Accutane. With enough courage after doing enough research due to O.C.D, I brought myself to start the Regimen. Right now it will be a week, I started off with BP only once a day for 3 days and then started twice a day, to see how my face will react to the BP and the small amount I'm starting off with.

So... The redness, dryness, etc. I'm not having any problems right now with using the BP twice a day for now a week. My skin is smooth and soft and I haven't seen yet any resurfacing acne, especially around my cheeks and forehead.

Just the scars here and there from recent before acne and excessive picking (guilty), so I was wondering since I'm not getting the redness and dryness, does it mean that it isn't working? Or that my face is already use to the small amount of BP I'm using (based on the video directions of Dan).

Also, when I put on the BP, while my skin is absorbing, my skin starts to feel tight just a bit and that's it, and of course then I use the Moisturizer and I'm done for the Regimen.

If you passed 2 weeks on Regimen without getting red faced does it mean it is still to come?

Sorry bit off topic but Is there any point in doing the regimen if you are on a course on antibiotics?

I believe being on antibiotics plus the regimen speeds up the acne eliminating process. But you can't be on antibiotics forever and from my experience with it, the acne almost always comes back after a few months being off it. So, it would be good to still keep up with the regimen after the antibiotics.

The doxy has stopped some pimples from coming, I do notice less but it's not really much of an improvement. I am on 50mg a day but I was prescribed 100mg a day for the first two weeks. It helped quite a bit and when I went to 50mg I broke out heaps and still am. I am also on Estelle (cheap brand of Diane).. I was on it when I suffered teen acne with success.

In the past month of taking doxy I would say it's improved 30%. I have had a few side effects though including sun sensitivity and some other embarrassing stuff eusa_doh.gif . I have been on the regimen for 3 days now and am only apply BP at night in a very small amount to my affected area. It seems to be improving quite a bit, but I am still getting pimples daily.

Has the medication helped your acne? Are you on the regimen already?

Yeah I was a little hesitant when the doctor prescribed me antibiotics as soon as she looked at my acne.. I was just there to get my old contraceptive back. She told me it'll take 3 months for my body to get used to the new pill and she gave me doxy until it does. I think it's a quick fix... I am worried to go off it.

Trust me, you'll know that it's working when the dryness hits you the second week. My first week I didn't get any dryness and was so happy because I thought I wasn't going to get any.....I was wrong. Still have dryness problems to this day and I'm at a little over 2 1/2 months.
