I've Been On The Regimen Since March...

12 posts in this topic

I've been on the regimen since March of this year, doing the Face wash/BP/Moisturizer day and night almost every single day since starting and I also recently added AHA into the mix in June... and I still have yet to notice much of a difference to my skin. Am I doing it wrong or is it just not working for me? I get that it takes time, but I think by 5 months that I should start noticing my face clearing up. I have noticed that I haven't been getting as many breakouts as I was, but I still have the same ones from weeks/months ago. Wish I was as lucky as everyone on here that got clear within the first 3 months!

Any tips?

How much BP are you using? The full recommended amount? and are you being super gentle with your skin?

And you really haven't noticed a difference? Would you say you have severe acne? Do you wait 15 minutes in between each step?

I definitely think you should. Give the product time to fully absorb to your skin. It's best to try and follow Dan's step to the letter. :)

Most important thing I've noticed helps is persistence and consistency. I used to do the regimen when I woke up and before bed, but when I switched to doing them 12 hours a part every day, I noticed it helped and cleared up a bit better than wake up/lay down schedule I was using. I now try and start the regimen at 9am and 9pm exactly and try and keep a consistent 12 hour time period between them.

But if you haven't been experiencing any noticeable difference using the regimen for 5 months (which I applaud you for for staying so consistent) I probably would give up and seek alternatives. Maybe go through the Acne.org questionnaire about the regimen and get a little more tailored advice. I'm not sure if any of this is helpful but I sincerely hope you find someone that works for you and a solution to your problem.
