In Topic: The Regimen - My Experience

Hello there.. I believe you are using too much cleanser and moisturizer for the beginning of the regimen. Please read the instructions again to be sure you are performing the regimen correctly. Also, since you are on the first week of the regimen, you should only be applying it once a day, preferably at night, then move onto twice a day during the second week, still using just a dime size of BP and moisturizer. You can slowly and gradually work your way up as you move through the weeks. You should also be sure that your skin as adjusted to BP fully before incorporating AHA. Slow and steady wins the race here.. Good luck and keep us up to date on your progress... :)

I would highly discourage you from using at home peels. Peels of low or high concentration should be applied by a professional for best results. Too many variables can go wrong and you would not want to damage your skin. Hyper pigmentation can be handled using AHA and will fade over time. Please use EXTREME caution when using at home therapies for the skin.


In Topic: Return Of Cystic Acne Following Smoking Cessation

Cosign with LewisS... Your severe breakout was due to a hormonal imbalance that was triggered by your smoking cessation.. I'm a former smoker and have dealt with severe acne most of my teen and adult life... The regimen helped to keep my skin clear when I began the cessation process and still keeps my skin clear to date... Please try the regimen and definitely try to quit smoking again... The price of clear skin is much cheaper on the regimen than it is smoking... Good luck and keep us up to date on your progress.. :)

Cosign w/melmel... AHA will help tremendously w/hyper pigmentation... You should cover your back as much as possible while use AHA, as it will make you photosensitive and make the scarring appear darker... In a few months, you'll be clear of the hyper pigmentation but now it's a matter of prevention... Good luck and keep us up to date on your progress... :)
