Looks more like persistent irritation.


You have really clogged pores. I would work on clearing those up and then tackle the redness if it's still there.


I alternate between this lactic peel and this salicylic peel. Works like a charm.

10,000 IU daily reduces my oily zone but that's in conjunction with pantothenic acid and anti-androgen daily. So yeah, I kinda doubt that 10,000 IU vitamin A all by itself is enough.


Sounds like such a big amount but a 10,000 IU pill is smaller than my pinky nail.

Daily supplementation with vitamin A and pantothenic acid helps keep my oily zone down. It feels a lot nicer to stop the oil from the inside rather than try to control it from the outside. Last thing you want is another cream to your regimen.

I have been on the regimen for 9 days now. The first week was great , no new acne, no dryness. But since i started using the Bp in the morning too my face starts burning after applying this foundation. It stings for about 20 min and then it passes and im left with dry tight skin. I read the ingridients in my foundation . It has 0.5 salycic acid. Could this be the issue? Any advice...i just dished out 30 $ for this foundation...i dream of the day where i can leave my house Without foundation/powder.


BP makes your skin sensitive to other products. Are you moisturizing after the BP?

Low cost option: PF Organic Wear


Moderate cost option: Ecco Bella Flower Color


High end option: Bareskin Pure Liquid


They all work for me, Bareskin is the best but also the most expensive.
