In Topic: How Long Before The Flaking Stops?

06 March 2015 - 02:34 AM

It never really stopped for me unfortunately and I'm in my 7th month. My skin is clear. I combat the flaking by applying lotion and jojoba oil multiple times after bp. I use neutrogena combination skin moisturizer. Works way better than the regimens moisturizer for me at least. Also this is the one step I don't follow the rules by. I know dan says to rub gently with your fingers but I use my whole hands and rub with a little force. If you have a lot of active acne, maybe wait to rub harder once it clears up cause I understand the concept. And you will clear up! Took me to 5 months to get completely clear. I've had one pimple since the beginning of this year

In Topic: What Make Up To Use While On Regimen?

I use bare minerals. I've used it the whole time I was on the regimen and my skin is clear. I have never broken out from it. I highly recommend it. Although it is a little expensive...but I've never had it do any damage to my skin. I just wait at least 15 minutes after my last step of regimen to put it on.

In Topic: Skin Is Getting Worse Not Better, Close To Quitting

My skin was not good at week 6-8! Don't give up. Those were the weeks I broke out the most and my skin was so dry and red! Also dan's moisturizer seemed to be making my complexion darker which I didn't like.

Around week 9 things started to get better. I'm now on week 12. I had a weird little breakout of two pimples last week but they went away fast and aren't noticeable.  My skin looks so much better than it did on weeks 6-8.

I recommend changing moisturizers foe the redness and flakiness. Cetaphil cream works wonders and doesn't break me out. Actually, my skin is back to feeling normal again. Also dan's aha is really good! It really helps with y complexion and my red marks are fading quickly.

Please don't give up. At least wait it out until the end of week 12#

Just so you know I'm on day 4 of week 7 now and my skin is the best yet! Haven't had a pimple in a week but it is still dry and a little red but I know that will subside eventually. I really do think once week 4-6 are over things get better. It makes sense...considering you start using the full dosage of bp around week 4 so your skin needs a few weeks to get used to that amount. Good luck!

Week 5 and 6 were the worst for me! Tomorrow is beginning of week 7 and my skin seems to be improving but I guess I never know...

But stick in there with me cause I'm in the same boat. I've read to give it 12 weeks at least!
