In Topic: Question For Those On The Regimen For Awhile

Hey arachnyd, its good to see that you switched to the acne.org bp. I started off way too fast as well and my skin took some punishment as it was super red than became super dry. Your skin is going to be  a bit more irritated because of the bp you were using. I would come down to applying the bp fully to the face once a day and either not  applying bp in the morning or just doing  a spot treatment ( listen to dan and start slow). You should do this for a week. In the mornings you still need to wash and moisturize. Whether you started with a poor bp product or not redness, irritation and dryness are inevitable when on the regime. My first couple of months on the regime were hell ( even in months three and four i still had a bit of dryness and redness but it was not as drastic as the first couple of months).  Even though the beginning of the regime  was hell for me, my whole life with acne before that was miserable as well so i knew this is what i had to do and i also had this feeling in the pit of my stomach that the regime was going to be the answer, unfortunately not an instant answer.

During the three and a half months i would say that my skin was actually better just because i had no stress from work or anything and i was just lying on the beaches swimming, surfing and lots of fun with fellow travelers every day. Yes i do stand by the theory that the salt water is a magnificiant tool for complexion. The sun is great just be careful not to get too much. I would definitely recommend buying a hat and spending some of the day in the shade. Don't be one of those travelers that the first day you get there bake in the sun all day and ruin your next week because your skin is fried. 

 

-Make sure you pack your regime kit in zip lock baggies so they do not ruin your clothes or bag

- i know it is hard but do your best to just not even think about acne or having the perfect complexion

 

I am jealous of your travels i cant wait to get over to SE asia


In Topic: If My Skin Is Not Dry After Putting On Bp, Should I Still Moisturize? (At Night)

Hello acneisacurse...... Yes you still need to moisturize but you definitely can use less if you live in a hot humid climate. If you are new to the regime use less but still err on the side of using more than you think. If your skin starts becoming dry in a couple days down the road ( which it probably will) increase back to regular dosage. I don't recommend using sunscreen without moisturizer. Yes even if your skin is not dry still put it on.
You really should not be sweating if you are in your house. You should buy a fan or something. Since you are investing lots of time and money into your face you should buy a fan to keep comfortable at home. If you are outside and sweating it is nice if you have a towel on you to pat dry your face. If not no worries just pat dry your face when you get home. Sweating is good for the skin but it is not good if it is going to be on your face for a long extended period of time

Hi... I travelled Australia for six months, where two and a half months  were spent in the city working where i did not go to the beach that much, therefore i did two applications of the regime daily. The other three and a half months i was traveling up the east coast surfing and at the beach every day so i only did a nightly application. 

 

In my opinion your morning routine  should be

1. wake up 

2. eat breakfast

3. wash ur face

4. dry your face and wait 10 min

5. apply moisturizer than apply your sunscreen after moisturizer has soaked in.

 

-Than have an awesome carefree day filled with adventure and awesome times.

 

- before bed do the full nightly regime 

 

-I personally think you should continue doing the regime twice a day until your trip, and than when you begin your vacation drop to once a day.

 

-I don't believe that your skin needs to be prepared to drop to once daily where it will need to be a slow process to go back to two times daily once you return.

 

-For sunscreen i used olay  complete defense spf 30 and  when i was in the water i would just put on an application of invisible zinc i believe.

 

-If you do not want to  use the invisible zinc, wash your hands and re lather with what you are using after you get out of the water

 

- Wear a hat even with your sunscreen on

 

- Take advantage of the ocean as the salt water is so good for the skin. The power of salt water for complexion is so under appreciated.

 

- Have a great time
