Thank you very much!

 

Day 4 is only the beginning! I didn't start seeing results until the 5th week. So DO NOT, I repeat...DO NOT GIVE UP!

 

For me it got a lot worse before it got better but don't let that scare you off. I was itchy, and red and my skin was flaking and it felt like I had a really bad sunburn. It is normal while your skin adjusts to the BP. It will go away, it varies for people when but my advice is just to stick with it. my 3rd week was the hardest part because I too wanted to quit..but again...DON'T! Give it a chance to work for you.

is it normal to feel a mask of dry skin on my face the first few weeks (flaky, rough, not even able to feel my acne or skin properly)?  My flakes are actually yellow.  Is this normal.  I am going slow - pea sized amount 2X per day.  When did this get better for you?  Dan's moisturizer is not helping AT ALL.  Feel like giving up

I've seen a few posts on the boards saying they don't click very well with Dan's moisturizer. I haven't tried his moisturizer but if it is not moisturizing enough, then you could always use a different one. I use Cetaphil lotion in the PM and basically just slather a lot of it on. I don't really care if it looks so oily and shiny, I'm going to bed anyways. My skin usually feels so much better in the morning. But yeah, I only do it in the PM because I live in a tropical country. If you live somewhere cold you could probably get away with using it AM and PM.

Lucky for me I really didn't have any deep scars. The ones I have can barely be seen unless you are really really close to my face. But I have been using AHA to help with the red marks and just to make my skin look smoother over all. :)

I used AHA to fade my red marks. With time and AHA the red marks really did fade. It took a couple of months for me to have them completely disappear.

Most of my nights I mix the AHA with my moisturizer. So about half a pump of AHA with my finger's dallop of moisturizer. On the nights where I use only AHA, I use about a pump and a half.

I am still doing the regimen. It is what controls my acne so I do it as a maintenance thing now. I don't really have any major scarring. It is very minimal and also the AHA helps with that.
