Morning - Skin tight / dry again this morning. After cleansing - SUPER tight! SUPER dry! Moisturizer helps control it a little bit but still feel tightness, especially around my mouth. Shaved before applying reg btw. An upside is, the moisturizer didn't burn AS much today as it did yesterday (I forgot to mention that part...).
Evening - Face felt pretty tight throughout the day. I'd also get some flakes around my mouth after eating. I managed to pick most of them off with tweezers. Although, these weren't the flakes that I used to get on the Regimen... these felt a lot more attached to my face, as if my skin was peeling a bit. Also been getting some cysts under / around my left jawline. Haven't really been scrutinizing that area so idk how much is old and how much is new. Considering I just started the reg, breakouts are not anything to worry about. Just gonna keep on trucking.
Applied the full reg again in the evening. I'm interested to see how long the adjustment phase will be for me, and how much drier / redder my skin is going to get before it finally starts becoming accustomed to the BP.
Some notes about my application of the products - I guess my touch is a bit harder than Dan suggests... not exactly feather-light. I take longer with the cleanser. I also take longer to move the BP around and make sure I get adequate coverage on all acne-prone areas... same with the moisturizer... I move it around and make sure it penetrates. I don't do any pressing or rubbing though. Gentle yet firm. Also I wait 15-20 minutes in-between steps. Right now my skin is driest right after cleansing... it feels like there is literally no moisture on my face whatsoever. After BP, things are a little better, but still dry as heck.
