Day 8 of regimen (start of week 2)!
Applying the full regimen system twice a day from now on. So far so good. Skin is still quite red which is annoying. You can see the difference between my face and the skin around my eyes - it's an obvious line where I stopped applying BP to avoid the eye area But I'm getting used to the redness. The dryness hasn't been bothering me much either - apart from when I'm waiting for my face to dry after cleansing (and before BP). My skin feels so insanely dry and annoying for those 5-10 minutes but it's tolerable enough.
All the tiny clogged pores / whiteheads that I started out with last week (on my forehead and sides of nose/going on to cheeks) have cleared up I can still feel a number of bumps under the skin (mainy chin and sides of face) - they're either coming or going or just continuing to sit there. I have quite a big spot on my forehead and some smaller ones above my right eyebrow. Those spots on my forehead are the most noticeable. So overall things aren't that bad. Still dealing with breakouts but overall my skin is feeling smoother and I'm coping with the redness/dryness. Haven't really had an issue with itchy skin like some people report.
Hoping week 2 goes well and that you're all seeing improvements in your skin!
Ahh, good luck! Wow, I hate that line btw. But it also happens to be the line where my acne-prone skin naturally "stops" and the perfectly clear skin around my eyes begins. I never get a single pimple past that line.
