So I have been using the regimen for a while now and it has definitely yielded results. I first used it once a day at night time and washed it off in the morning. This worked alright but didn't help nearly as much as I wanted it to so I switched to using the regimen twice a day as instructed.
This is fine except for one problem. The moisturizer makes my face shiny. I use cetaphil cleanser and the bp and moisturizer made by Dan and sold on this site.
Dan's moisturizer makes my face shiny and this is not ideal for me. As a male who works, plays sports, and engages in other social activities, I want my face to appear as normal as possible. My acne is not that bad anymore but the moisturizer making my face shiny is a problem.
I'm considering starting using minocycline which I have a prescription for and using the regimen only once a day (at night). I'm hoping that minocycline will be a good substitute for the 2nd dose of the regimen.
The problem is that I'm kind of turned off from minocycline due to the limits that it would put on me. Aside from a few days of side effects which I've read about, I also heard that you can not drink alcoholic beverages while on minocycline.
Since I plan to be on minocycline for an extended period of time (atleast a few months), that would be a problem for me because I like to go out and party with my friends.
i was wondering if there was an alternative moisturizer option that would make it less obvious that there is something on my face. Or if maybe minocycline is not as serious as all these reviews make it out to be.
Any advice would be amazing. I'm sure I'm not the only one experiencing this slight problem.
