Hello!

I wonder if it is possible to use The Regimen products (all of them) together with a Retin-A cream and a Firming Moisturizer with DMAE Alpha Lipoic and C-Ester?

 

Will be be a good combination or worse? 

Best regards!

I don't see why you couldn't use them, just not at the same time (and you won't be following "The Regimen"). Use BP in the morning and Retin-A at night. As for the moisturizer, do you want to use them both? You can of course alternate or combine them, but I don't know why you'd want to use two if one does the job.

I strongly advise you not to incorporate other things if you are just starting out the regimen. When your skin settles and gets used to the BP and has cleared then you can start incorporating one thing at the time and see if it works well with the regimen.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Lotion/Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25

                    NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20

                              The Balm Sexy Mama Translucent Power

                              Smashbox Photoset Pressed Power in Light
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff

                      Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fuide in Cashew

- Tinted Moisturizer: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Nude
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
