Would Sunscreen Help With Redness?

05 June 2013 - 12:50 PM

I have been on the regimen for 8 months (but I 'reset' 4 months ago). I am mostly clear, but I still do get 1-3 zits a week. But I also am not yet using the full amount as my face takes awhile to adjust.


I am still suffering with an extremely red face in areas where I apply BP/Moisturizer. Switching moisturizers to Cerave helped a little bit, but it is still bad.


I was wondering if adding a sunscreen would help with redness. I don't think I spend enough time in the sun to get sunburns, but is it still beneficial to use one?


If so, which should I get, and how do I apply it (mix with other moisturizer?). I see the product guide recommends "Olay Complete All Day UV Moisturizer - Sensitive Skin", but if anyone knows another one better (or one that can help reduce redness) that would be cool too.


Thanks for reading.

Need Recommendations For Moisturizer With Aha

01 April 2013 - 09:58 PM



I've been on the regimen for about 6 months now. I never get breakouts anymore, but I have horrid, horrid hyperpigmentation. I have been using AHA (acne.org) every other day for the past 4 months, but it seems to do nothing. I have seriously had some of the same red marks for years. For moisturizer I currently use the Cetaphil lotion...I don't really like it though. It makes my skin red and itchy and greasy.


Anyway, I was looking for recommendations on a moisturizer with AHA (and spf would be nice too) that can be used everyday. Or at least an alternative (cheap $) to  Cetaphil that I can dilute Dan's AHA with.


Thanks for reading.

Couple Of Questions (Aha Related)

08 September 2012 - 07:37 PM

So I've been doing the Regimen about a week now and I've been thinking about the future and adding AHA.

I see the AHA referenced to as a moisturizer, so does that mean I should use it in place of the Moisturizer included in the Regimen? Or use both?

This also may be a silly question (I am new to skin product terminology), but does any part of the Regimen (or AHA) serve as a skin toner? i.e.unclogs blackheads and shrink appearance of pores after the blackheads are gone

Appreciate whatever you can answer, thanks.
