In Topic: Using Bp Once A Day

I say give the 1x/day face Regimen a go.  It seems like you know your skin pretty well, so it can't hurt to see if less irritation will help your face!  If it gets worse, of course just go back to 2x/day and consider other alternatives, such as cutting down on BP or AHA.  How long have you been on the Regimen for?

 

P.S.  Could also be your makeup, I just looked it up and it has a few comedogenic ingredients in it.  Although, some people aren't as affected by these ingredients as others, like me!

 

does it? i looked it up and couldnt find anything, but it would make sense. Ive been on the regimen for like nearly 3 months now I think, i am near enough clear but it annoys me that my back is looking so much better than my face because it used to be so much worse. I'm clear enough now where i feel like i can experiment with doing the regimen less often so i might slowly cut back a little and see what happens.

 

Yeah, apparently it has cetearyl alcohol and such...but that's probably not the cause since it's a bit further down the list of ingredients.  :P  I agree, if it's been the full three months and you're not satisfied with the results, try to experiment if you can!  Feel free to report back.  :)

Which brand of BP are you using?  Some BP creams tend to have this effect, while gels don't.  I'm not sure how you could avoid this if you're only using a cream-based BP, since I use Dan's BP.

Hey! :) It's definitely supposed to sting while your skin gets used to it.  But, if it stings too much (burning sensation/redness), you should probably be using less.  Listen to your skin and work your way up to the full amount.  Start with a dime-sized amount (or 1/2 the length of your index finger) or less!
