To start, I just want to say that I have been using the Regimen for almost a whole month now, and seeing great results.
Now that my acne is under control, I have another problem, very dry patchy, almost painful at times, skin on my hands since I have to wash my hands before each step of the Regimen (and sometimes after.) I started to experience this within the second week. I have been trying to moisturize my hands many times a day,and especially go bit heavy at night before bed. I still have this have this painfully dry skin on my hands.
For hand/body Iotion, I currently have been using the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. Sometimes I also use Eucerin Intensive Repair Lotion as well. The soap I am using is the Up and Up (Target brand) Foaming Hand Wash Antibacterial Pear scented. Could it be the pear scent? Or the fact that I am washing my hands like 10 times more than I used to, and my hands are just freaking out? I also tried adding the Jojoba oil to my lotions, but still not really helping, even though it has helped my dry face.
My main question here is if anyone else is experiencing the same thing, and what they are using to control their dry hands? I want to make sure I use a lotion that will not break me out if I accidently touch my face during the day or at night while I am asleep. I do try drink over 9 glasses of water a day to help keep me hydrated as well.
Please let me know if you have any ideas of any good products to use. Thanks!
