Not Red On The Regimen!

4 posts in this topic

Hi guys, I'm 25 and suffering from acne for 9 years. I've just started the regimen 2 days back but my face is not red at all. Not flakey. I use almost a finger length of BP 2.5%. And I've never used BP in other products prior. Erm should I be putting even more?! I'm worried it won't work!! The pic is my normal face w BP on.

I would strongly suggest that you slow down with the BP! Starting out with a small amount of BP is best because you will get red and flaky as you start to increase the amount and frequency of applications - until your skin adjusts to that amount.

You're only on your second day so it's normal to not be red / flaky at that point but it will possibly start sooner now because you've started with nearly the full amount of BP.

BP really should help it just takes time and patience - don't hurry to increase the amount. It's way more important in the first few weeks of the regimen to go slow and let your skin adjust to the BP - redness / flakiness / irritation is experienced by majority of people (if not all) who use BP - it's annoying but worth it in the end!

If you want the best results from the regimen, follow it as closely as possible - re-read the instructions / guidelines / what to expect info if you haven't already :)

Good luck with it all!

Oh my gosh, no please don't! It may feel okay now, but there's a chance your face may suddenly flare up.

I started the BP process according to Dan's instructions and that was still too fast for my skin personally. It was constantly red and hot after about 2 weeks so I stopped completely and will have to start all over again once my skin completely calms down.

May I ask why you ignored Dan's instructions?


Finished my 1st round of Accutane course on 3/29/2015
40mg/day every month for 6 months

Began 2nd round of Accutane on 10/13/2015
My acne came back very mildly & nowhere near as bad as it used to be, I refused any topicals or antibiotics since I've already been through the "last resort" treatment without any problems.

Dosage & length of time is the same as the 1st round.

Update: 10/1/2016
Skin is still completely clear! I'll get an occasional random pimple every few months, and I'm perfectly okay with that.

Hey guys!

To answer ur question, i didnt intend to ignore. i decided to start a similar regimen as per word of mouth (not from acne.org) and found out that its almost similar. the difference is just starting on a finger length worth of BP straightaway. but the rest is exactly the same!

Actually its day 4 now and im feel a tingle occasionally when i apply my make up on, but otherwise i feel alrighttttt. *fingers crossed*. other than around my eye area, im feeling confident this will work ... eventually! keeping hope ^^

Thanks for your help guys!
