Spf Moisturizer For Underneath Makeup- Help

11 December 2012 - 04:53 AM

Hello!

So I've been on the regimen for about 2 months now using the acne.org products. Prior to the regimen I was wearing Neutragena Sport Face spf 70+ in addition to using Neutragena Oil Free Moisture - Sensitive Skin. While on the regimen, I have been avoiding sunscreen completely (unless I know I will be out in the sun for long periods of time.) And when I have used my spf 70 on top of the regimen acne.org products it makes my face extremely oily and then its impossible to put makeup on top of it!

So I was just wondering what other people are using for sun protection and what works well on top of the regimen & under makeup.

Skin Burning Hours After Application?

07 November 2012 - 05:27 PM

Hi! I'm 22 years old and have been on the regimen with acne.org products for a total of three weeks now. I was slowly increasing the amount of BP on the face (like it says to do) & at week 3 I was doing about one full pump of BP morning & night. My skin by the end of the week is so incredibly dry, not a single spot on my face feels like soft normal skin. Last night I washed my face and started the regimen around 10:30pm then finished applying moisturizer and jojoba oil a little after 11pm. After applying the moisturizer my face burned a little, which has happened pretty much every time I apply it. But by 2am my face was still burning and worse than it was in the beginning! I didn't know what to do & was in so much pain that I washed it off with cold water. The following morning (today) I didn't put BP on, because I was afraid of it burning again.

I know everyone goes through a rough time (to different extents) in the beginning using the regimen. But is this normal? What do you think I should do? I really want my skin to clear up & I know everyone says to be persistent, but this was so painful & honestly my skin hasn't improved at all & I only have moderate acne.

Sometimes I do apply Cetaphil face lotion to help with the dryness, but only when my skin is really dry & I have to go out in public or put makeup on. I feel like the Cetaphil lotion is more moisturizing than The Regimen moisturizer.

I really appreciate anyone who reads this whole thing &/or takes the time to help me out! Thanks so much! Posted Image

Edit: Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, I was a little confused as to where this post "should" go & am new to this.
