Hi All, So I'm at the beginning of my 4th week on the Regimen. I use it morning and night. I was wondering if anyone is doing this or has done this. I have moderate acne on my cheeks and chin, but none on my forehead. I do cleanse and moisturize all over, except when it comes to the BP step, I only use it on my affected areas. Is this an okay thing to do?

I don`t apply BP on my forehead because I`m clear there, only on my problem areas and acne-prone areas. It should be fine. I also don`t moisturize my forehead lol but I have yet to see any acne pop up there.

Okay. I'm glad to not be the only one. I hope this is an okay thing to do. I do moisturize all over though.

Sure! If a part of your face is consistently clear, I don't see why you would need to mess with it. :)

You don't "need" to. But if you start breaking out in those areas it will be harder to control than the areas which you do apply BP to. If that never happens, no worries. But you also aren't oxygenating those pores either. But like I said, if you don't have congestion/acne there it's fine.
