In Topic: Questions About Jojoba Oil?

25 February 2013 - 08:12 AM

Hey there! I was like you...I had SUPER oily skin. I was constantly having to blot my face with a papertowel to soak up all the oil. Since I started using the regimine (following step-by-step instructions) and adding the Jojoba oil to the moisterizer (the last step) my face has completely transformed! It's well balanced and clear. I add about 6 drops of the jojoba oil to one pump of the acne.org moisterizer. My face is really oiled up with the moisterizer but it soaks in and then the rest of the day it's super soft but not at all oily. I was worried about using the jojoba oil..actually I was worried about using moisterizer since I was so broke out but I can't believe how awesome my face looks and feels now!

 

Did it take your skin time to get used to this or were the results rather immediate?

 

I've been trying stuff like this in the last few days and it never really seems to soak in.

I noticed over the course of the day my face will absorb the moisterizer and oil.  I don't wear make-up other than eye make-up and concealer around my nose (I have red veins on the sides of my nose I like to cover up)- so leaving the moisterizer/oil on without rubbing it all in and just letting it soak in - isn't an issue. There was one day I did get a call from a friend saying they were going to pop over and the moisterizer/oil hadn't absorbed all the way ...so I washed my hands and dried them and then rubbed the moisterizer/oil in the rest of the way. I would keep on using it like you are...I think your skin will get used to it. I just found pictures of myself with my two boys (May of last year, before starting regimen) and my face looks like an oil slick. They were taken early in the morning after I had washed it. My face was shinier and more oily in that pic than mid-day being on the regimen (using moisterizer/jojoba oil). I'm going to post the picture for you to see- also you will notice in the picture my face looks swollen in the chin area...I had a LOT of cyctic acne getting ready to pop up (my face hurt to smile). Compare the pic from last May to the pic that I just posted which I took in Feb, which is without make-up ..other than my eye make-up and concealer on sides of nose. I don't have face powder or foundation on (I can't wear that stuff..).


In Topic: Aha - How Often To Use?

21 February 2013 - 10:52 AM

I use AHA at night. I add about 1 tsp with one pump of the moisterizer and 6 drops of the jojoba oil. If I know I'm not going anywhere during the day then I'll also use it in the morning. Make sure you let your face dry completely after the cleansing and treatment step. I use a LOT of treatment cream so it takes a while for it to soak in. The AHA started off stinging really bad. So I cut back to a couple drops mixed in with moisterizer and then worked my way up to 1 tsp. It doesn't sting anymore. I haven't had any breakouts since I quit using my well water ..I don't use Dan's cleanser since it would require rinsing off with our well water. I use Dickinson's witch hazel cleansing pads and still wait for my face to dry before applying the treatment cream.

Sorry..I didn't answer all the your questions.

1) I use the acne.org Jojoba oil along with the rest of the products Dan sells. They are amazing!! (Treatment cream, AHA, Jojoba oil and moisterizer). I don't use the cleanser because I don't wash my face with our well water. I use the Dickinson's Witch Hazel cleansing pads to wash my face and then follow up with the rest of the acne.org products. I follow the directions - making sure my face is totally dry between each step and rubbing very lightly!

2) I ordered it on Amazon.com (same price as on this site but I like using my amazon account).

3) I anwered this above..I blend about 6 drops of jojoba oil to my acne.org moisterizer and then spread it around my face lightly and then let the rest of it soak into my face. My face starts off all shiney and oiley but after a while it soaks in and then I can put my make-up on over it! I use the jojoba oil twice a day...in the morning and at night.

I'm so jealous! So you don't let water touch your skin at all? Just the hazel cleansing facial wipes? The Regimen isn't really working for me and I just keep breaking out as usual and nothing is clearing, so maybe I'll try that smile.png What hazel cleansing facial wipes do you use?

I don't let the water touch my face at all...lol! We have well water and it's horrible. My 19 year old and my 16 year old are both dealing with horrible acne too- which coincidentally clears up when they leave for summer. I'm trying to get them to use the regimen (which I continually spell wrong..sorry!) but they aren't consistent with using it. How long have you been using the regimen? Do you use a LOT of the treatment cream and moisturizer (letting it dry between applications)?

 

I use the Dickenson's witch hazel wipes (yellow box). I get them at Walgreens. They are over by the Burt's Bee's/Stridex/Clearisil products- on the very bottom shelf. Each box has a $1.00 off coupon inside! It's about 5.99 per box and you get 30 wipes. I noticed they even sell them on amazon.com. I know with the regimen they say to touch your face very lightly...so I rub as gently as possible but I do thoroughly clean my face until I notice the cloth isn't dirty looking.

 

Hope this helps! :)


In Topic: Just Purchased Aha+ Should I Use It?

I've been on the regimine for about a little over a month. I got the AHA with the acne.org kit and I started using it right away but it irritated my skin. I looked on the Regimine site to see what it said about AHA irritation. The directions said to use the cleanser, treatment cream and moisterizer for a couple weeks first before starting the AHA. I started using a tiny bit of the AHA and have now worked my way up to about 1 tsp mixed in with my moisterizer and the jojoba oil. I have noticed a HUGE difference in my skin! I finally don't have any cystic acne or white hard plugs sticking out of my skin and the itchy acne I had along my jaw line is gone along with the baby acne I had on my forehead. My skin is the clearest, smoothest and prettiest it has ever been and I'm 41 years old. I've been through hell with my skin so I'm getting ready to post my story/background for others to read.
