Redness Due To Bp.. Even After 6 Weeks

5 posts in this topic

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.
