So, I received the regimen beginner kit on Monday. I've seen quite a few success stories about it and immediately became obsessed with the product and reviews. I'm a teenager and was desperate for something to help my acne before school started again. I've read up about how it can cause dryness & flaky skin but that wasn't anything new with products that I've previously used.
I have been on the regimen for around 5 days now. I must say, I have seen remarkable results so far in just this time span. The first few days weren't too bad. I experienced some purging or so that's what I figured it was. But on the third day, I came across moderate dryness after using the cleanser. Only around the mouth area though. The rest of my face wasn't as dry. I took this as a sign of using too much cleanser and reduced from 2 pumps to 1 pump. But the same problem occurred again the following day. The weird thing is, when I apply moisturizer, I get a burning sensation only under my bottom lip. Not my entire mouth area, just under my bottom lip.
Is there anything I can do to prevent this from reoccurring? Is it something I'm doing wrong? Or is it a side effect that will subside within time of proceeding the use of the regimen?
I have yet to try the jojoba oil btw, I was planning on ordering it when I purchase another kit.

All the things you've mentioned...the dryness, the burning sensation, those are come with doing the regimen. The good news is, that eventually your skin will get used to the BP and slowly those side effects go away. You are still very early into the regimen and those side effects could still get worse, but do not let that discourage you. Keep going! 

 

If you feel dry any time throughout the day you can always add a little bit more moisturizer. Also, I say go get the jojoba oil as soon as you can. That thing really does wonders when on the regimen.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png
