Regimen In The Uk

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

From the UK and possibly looking to start the regimen. I'm male and was wondering what people have used for the regimen from stores in the UK for the regimen.

Thanks!

Hey, when I did the regimen I used:

Morning:

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (can be found in the pharmacy section of any Boots store)

Panoxyl 2.5 Aquagel (this is not available anymore but there are several possible alternatives like Benzac or Neutrogena On-the-spot that can be found on Amazon UK)

Olay Complete Care Sensitive Day Fluid (contains spf 15 and can be found everywhere: supermarkets, Boots, Superdrug etc.)

Evening:

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

Panoxyl

Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion (again pharmacy section of Boots)

Jojoba oil (bought from Holland and Barrett but you can also purchase some on Amazon UK)

Hope that helps and good luck with the regimen!


My Current Treatment Plan

Morning: Lymecycline

Evening: Dianette + Epiduo

Diet: eliminated dairy

My Log:

Acne status: continuing to break out, so demoralising!

Thanks for the advice. Did the regimen not work because I see your current treatment plan is different? Also why did you use a different moisturiser at night and morning?

My skin didn't get on very well with the regimen in the end, I think because it's too sensitive to deal with applying bp twice a day. It cleared my acne, but even after a year I couldn't get rid of the dryness and irritation so I decided to give up on it for that reason.

I used different moisturisers because:

a) the Olay contains spf (which you need if you're using the regimen because bp makes your skin more sensitive to the sun) whereas the Cetaphil doesn't

b) I find Cetaphil makes my face look too shiny to be used during the day. I still use it at night even now though because it's brilliant at keeping the dryness caused by bp at bay.
