Hi, I've been on the regimen for around two months at this point. Generally I longer have every day breakouts, although the areas above my cheeks are still swamped with dark marks and the occasional whitehead. The reason that I 'm posting this topic is to see if anyone has dealt with or has any solutions to the dry skin problem I'm having. I've been using aha every night for around a month by mixing it in to my moisturizer, but I've yet to see any improvements. Every morning I still wake up with an abundance of flakes covering my face, and it takes a lot of work to ensure that they won't be visible throughout the day. Here's how I've been using the regimen so far:
Morning: Shower and apply Acne.org Cleanser. After I leave the shower I've got dry skin residue all over my face so I spread about 10-12 drops of jojoba around and wait for it to dry. After about twenty minutes it's dried, and I apply Dan's Bp treatment. This takes about 30-45 minutes to fully absorb into my skin. I'm not sure why this process is so lengthy, maybe because I generally have more oily skin? Afterwards I use Cetaphyl Moisturizing Lotion, and this takes another 30-45 minutes to absorb. Often I have to spot treat with jojoba oil to get rid of excess flakes.
Night: I use the cleanser and Bp again, and the process is much the same. Then I'll use Dan's moisturizer (I don't use it during the day because it makes my skin look orange) and I'll mix it in with some Aha. I apply this, go to bed, and wake up with flakes again.
Any ideas why Aha doesn't seem to be working? Also, chemical vs physical exfoliation? Often I have to pick off flakes so I'm already physically exfoliating a bit, but not by choice!
