Hey guys! So today I just reached my 14th day on The Regimen!
Unfortunately, this is usually how long I spend on every regimen before I decide to quit if I don't see results. And, I don't really. My skin cleared last week and it was incredible, but now it's broken out again and it's extremely red. It's also itchy, which wasn't happening before. I feel like the BP is causing all of this redness, and the moisturizer helps somewhat, but not completely. It's pretty discouraging. I bump up the BP about 1/2 section of a finger every week, so that by one month I'll be using the full amount and be ready to use AHA as well. I've been waiting on jojoba oil, which should get here in a few days.
I'm just wondering if these symptoms are normal for 2 weeks in. The quality of my face is appallingly bad, for what I'm used to. I feel like I don't have real skin, just some red, dry, mutated bumpy thing. I long for smooth skin
Does anyone have thoughts on this progress so far? I don't want my skin to get worse! Is it just getting worse before it gets better?
Note: There are pics of my progress in my gallery.
