Hi All

 

This is my first time writing on the forum..I have been using the regimen for 6 weeks now.. My skin does not feel very  dry and flaky anymore.. However, my skin still turns red and feels warm after a few hours following the regimen..I don't know why? Am I still not used to the full dose?

 

And I'm still getting acne here and there.. but they heal fast leaving bad red marks..

Have started using Aha as spot treatment and occasionally use it with Cetaphil in the night...

 

I don't know how much longer it is going to take for my skin to be completely acne free without this redness.. :(

I'm still hopeful though...

 

Thanks a lot in advance for any advice!!

The redness for me took longer to disappear than the acne. The BP reall slows down the process of healing. I had found though that spot treating those red marks with AHA before you apply the BP can speed up the process.

 

Also, don't get to discouraged with your red face, I got pretty red too an it didn't really go away till after 4months. It takes time.


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
