haha you can call me dan! For the first couple weeks the itchiness was actaully my biggest problem. Then the flaking came by week 3 immediately after i increased the dosage to fll finger length the flakiness was pretty bad. However it has gotten a lot better this week! Yes once you get to full finger length I do believe you stay there. It is advised to start off slow though. My acne has gotten a bit better but I have moderate/moderately severe acne so it is taking a little while longer. The regimen takes 3-4 months to fully take effect for more severe cases. So hopefully in month two I start seeing more improvement! However from your picture it doesnt look like your acne is bad at all! So I do think youll have faster results than me!
I dont wear makeup as I am male lol but I can relate to the dry skin thing and it is currently winter here in the states so it makes matters worse. However lots of people add the jojoba oil in with the moisterizer for a greater moisturizing effect. I do beleive that there are products on the "ok to use list" that is listed on this website, however I would recommend using the acne.org products and add the joboba oil if you still experience dry skin!
