So I'm about 3 months into the regimen, and currently it's kind of bittersweet... my skin is CLEAR, like haven't really had a serious pimple in weeks.. and I even managed to reduce treatment to once daily and maintain the same results.
The issue is I'm still experiencing REDNESS like terribly bad.. I look like a lobster that went tanning wearing sunglasses.. its embarrassing because the skin around my eyes and my neck are pale white.. whilst the rest of my face looks like I just got back from a summer in a tropical paradise.. I also experience occasional irritation.. but it's not to bad.. flaking and peeling have stopped for the most part.. if this redness would just simmer down, then I would have the desired results.
I currently have Emu oil being shipped to me.. it should be here in about 1-2 weeks time.. I hear that is a godsend for redness, and I even read on the forums that it has been a cure for many peoples "lobster face" on the regimen.. so here's hoping..
For whatever reason I also somehow think my moisturizer has some to blame.. also the jojoba oil I was using actually made my skin even more red.. I don't know why but my face gets more red the more moisturizer I have on it.. maybe I just don't react well to my moisturizer or jojoba oil? I dunno!
I currently am using CeraVe moisturizing lotion.. it's not specified for the face.. but I know plenty of people online using it.. hmm.
I could certainly go for some of your guys' suggestions! Should I switch moisturizers? Can you guys recommended one if I should? Do you think the Emu oil will do the trick? Should I just keep pushing on?
All your comments and opinions are appreciated!
Thanks all (:
PS: I should also note I tried Cetaphil moisturizer.. and I was allergic, broke me out in hives,, so that suggestion would be crossed out.
