On My Fourth Day Of The Regimen

5 posts in this topic

I know you've seen this post a million times but I'm sorry, I'm new to The Regimen and on my fourth day. I gained 4 new pimples while undergoing The Regimen. Is this normal or not? I've been religious on following the exact thing the video said and the zits on my face really puzzles me. As I've said, I'm only on my first week and I don't want to give up! Please help!

Your skin is adjusting to the regime, new breakouts and irritation are just part of the drill in the beginning phases unfortunately. Eventually your skin will adjust to the foreign ingredients and things will become less daunting. As you have probably already read, you have to ride it out. You just have to know your skin will get better, and in the long run these beginning phases are totally worth it. Stay focused and positive :)

I'm on my 4th day of the regimen too! I can't tell if I've had anymore breakouts yet (this week out of the month is usually my clearer week though) but my face is definitely getting red (my cheeks by my nose especially).

Very normal thing to happen in the regimen. You can still even get breakouts a month into it but you shouldn't let it discourage you. The early stages of the regimen isn't easy. You get breakouts, dry skin, flakes, etc. All you can really do is wait it out and handle the side effects as best you can.

Good luck! :)
