Hey guys, help me out here.
I've been in the regimen for 3 weeks now. I started last June 16.
Having a broken time of work here in Saudi (8/9AM-12NN then 4-8/9PM), I have to do some cleansing in between time. I wake at 7/8AM for 9AM-12NN shift then I sleep from 1:30-3PM for 4-9PM shift. I'll show you how I do my routine so you can have an idea and correct me if I'm doing something wrong.
This is my routine:
>Week 1 (JUNE 15 - 21)
12MN: cleanser, less than half a pump of bp, moisturizer
8AM: cleanser, moisturizer
1PM: cleanser, moisturizer
>Week 2 (JUNE 22 - 28)
3PM: cleanser, less than half a pump of bp, moisturizer
1AM: cleanser, less than half a pump of bp, moisturizer
7AM: cleanser, moisturizer
>Week 3 (JUNE 29 - JULY 5)
3PM: cleanser, half a pump of bp, moisturizer
1AM: cleanser, half a pump of bp, moisturizer
7AM: cleanser, moisturizer
>Week 4 (JULY 6- 12)
same as above but I'll start tomorrow with the 1 full pump of bp
I know you're not suppose to wash more often but I can't go to work looking like I just came out of bed. LOL
If you're going to suggest to change my routine, like do it in 7AM and 10PM, it's still the same because I need to wash my face for my 4PM shift.
Anyways, my concerns are:
1.Dark skin. I notice that the moisturizer is making my skin darker because of it's yellowish color. Is this really that yellow on the face? I have a light skin color by the way. I'm kinda concern because I'm thinking maybe the moisturizer is spoiled during it's delivery here due to too much heat. Any ideas or suggestion about this one?
2. Too much dryness and peeling skin. I know that it's the BP talking here. I read almost all about the effects of it here in the forum (well, maybe just more than the usual, not totally all). I've read it before ordering. I studied and read as much I can about BP and this REGIMEN. I'm just concern that I increase the amount of BP too slow or what. Am I on the right track on BP here?
3. BLUSH like fire red. I blush a lot even before I started the regimen. When it's hot, laughing, nervous, or any extreme emotions, I blush. It's easily noticeable since I have a white skin. But last Friday, I went out with my friend cause it's both our day off, and she was totally freaked out when she saw my face. You're TOO RED, she said. I can feel really that my face is burning. I'm not in the sunlight but the effect of hot weather is not really good to me that time. This always happens in the Philippines before but not like this one. I can tolerate the heat before. I feel like the REGIMEN is making my skin too sensitive in the sun just like what I've read about BP. Now, I'm afraid to go out even not under the sun because I think It's gonna burn my face FOR REAL. Help please.
I know this one hell of a long novel for you guys. But I'm just in need of support and guidance right now. Especially if there are any "kabayan" there in the Philippines that has the same sensitive and white skin like mine and under this routine, can you please tell what do I have to expect when I go back there. In advance, thank you guys. God bless you all.
