Thanks for answering my questions,I am using dans moisturers at the moment but need to change it as for during the day it only gives immediate relief for dryness but doesn't help after that and I need something to help my liquid foundation to go on smoother ,as my skin looks dry and dehydrated ,I am 39 so not a good look.does the clinique keep your skin hydrated,I am trying to find a day moisturiser that is very moisturising that is not greasy,doesn't block pores that i can apply make up over,don't want much then hehe x
Can I ask how long you have been on the regimen?
My clinique moisturizer works really well for me during the day. It does not look greasy and it absorbs really fast. I only use my cetaphil at night because it is very thick and if I use it during the day it takes a long time to absorb and it also makes my face look really greasy. With the clinique, it absorbs fasts and I like the way my liquid foundation look over it.
I guess finding the right moisturizer also depends on where you live. I live in a tropical country so its hot most of the time and really humid. That is why I opt for the clinique during the day. If you live in a cooler climate, I think you can use something like cetaphil or cerave.
Hi, i have been on the regimen for 8 weeks, i will give you a bit of background info i am 39 now i have struggled with my skin since my teens with moderate, sometimes mild acne but i was never without a spot, and they begn to scar ( the shallow pit type) as i got older, after being on dianette, varies antibiotics, and sometimes nothing at all, my skin covered well with make up and people didnt realise that i had problem skin, then i got fed up of not having clear skin and went onto accutane for 6 months, then 6 months later i had on the NHS fully ablative co2 laser resurfacing under general anethestic(i will post the pics sometime), so spots gone scars gone, all good. then i had a baby 2011 and was fine until baby was 4 months old then started getting breakouts nothing major especially time of month, quinoderm 5 helped but then i couldnt get that strenghth anymore, so was just fed up of always having some spots, so went on the regimen, never went red but went very dry and scaly, passed that stage now just now dry and needs a good hydration, i am using dans cleaner+bp+moisturizer, desert essnce jojobia oil and alpha hydrox aha(oil free one).only been using aha about 5 days mixing it. i live in uk so it not hot often haha, maybe its my make up that i need to change, but maybe i should try just doing bp at night as i have only mild problems and it seems to dry my whole face.? also more or less clear now x
