Almost 3 Months, Extreme Dryness

9 posts in this topic

Hey! (:

So I'm very proud of my progress on the Regimen thus far. My skin is looking a lot better! My red spots are fading and I'm mostly clear (still having minor breakouts every now and then).

The only problem is that my skin is still extremely dry. I feel like nothing is helping! I've tried exfoliating with jojoba, I'm using AHA, I have no idea what to do. I've even ended up just scraping at my skin a few times, which is horrible! I don't know how to solve this problem without causing irritation. Is this amount of dryness even normal this far into the Regimen?

Any advice is appreciated (:

My skin felt like actual skin again on the 4th month into the regimen. I didn't have the flakes or the itchy feeling or sensitivity, but the dryness did last long. I used a pretty thick moisturizer to battle that. I use cetaphil as my night time moisturizer because it really did feel like it was doing something for my skin when I woke up in the morning.

What moisturizer do you use?

I have never used Dan's moisturizer but I have read that a few people on the boards don't find it moisturizing enough. I use Cetaphil as my night time moisturizer and I really love it because when I wake up in the morning my face feels so soft. I don't recommend it as an AM moisturizer though because it can look pretty greasy.

I haven't really noticed a change in my skin color. I'm naturally pretty red/pink in on my face even before I started the regimen. Are you using sunscreen? I mix in some spf with my moisturizer because BP and AHA really do make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

From my experience (10 years on the regimen, living in a cold climate) the only thing that works to mask the flakes is cetaphil dry to very dry moisturizing cream. I know you're not supposed to use a cream but no lotions work for me. I've tried everything you can think of, Dan's moisturizer, Cerave, AHA+, jojoba, neutrogena, etc etc etc and they don't do much to mask the flakes.
