Has your acne gotten any better after 6 years?

It actually has, quite a bit, but breakdowns still are no fun for anyone.


In Topic: Should I Use The Regimen?

13 May 2015 - 10:44 AM

You won't know unless you try it. I went through MANY different routines/products before finally giving the regimen a shot and it has been the best regimen I've used so far in my 12-13 years [god...] dealing with acne. It does dry you out, you have to take baby steps with BP if you decide to, and moisturizer is KEY to keep flaking/redness down.

If you do find success in the regimen its best to keep up with it, there are some posts from people trying to ween off after getting clear, you may want to look into if you're curious.

Forehead acne, just a thought - does your hair cover your forehead at all? that can keep oil buildup there. How often do you change your pillowcase?

^^You do not need to wash your face after finishing applying moisturizer, it needs to be absorbed into your skin. Keep face the regimen/face washings, between 10-12 hr intervals. :)

and I mix cetaphil moisutizer with dan's for some extra moisture when needed, so mixing is fine as long as nimic62 said, make sure you how the product will effect you

In Topic: I Cant Seem To Rid My Acne!

We all know what it's like going through product after product, routine after routine, hoping: this will be it! and then the fast disappointment upon realizing, 'well maybe next time'. As far as your daily actions of y'know not toucing your face and drinking only water, etc that's great; as far as the regimen, definitely takes time. It took me a while to see results and though I definitely breakout less, I still occasionally have a hormonal and/or stress breakout. It's only been a week maybe 2 at this point for you, give it more time, 3 months is best, make adjustments if need be...less BP, more moisturizer, or more drying time. I sincerely hope the regimen helps you like it has helped me and so many others here. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns!
