In Topic: Regimen Success! :)

That's very nice to hear! I'd just like to ask what your skin was like until you reached this result. I'm near the end of my third week and I start uni next week. My skin started breaking out really bad near the end of the second week and I'd like to know how long I should expect this to last. Does the skin continuously look really bad until the 2/3 month mark and then suddenly get better or what? thank you for taking the time to read and answer this smile.png

 

Hey!  I feel like it depends on the person (and I'm sure many could also answer this with their own experiences).  My skin purged a few times on the Regimen, and during the first few weeks it did a lot.  It's totally normal.  It goes through cycles where it clears a bit, then purges, until it's finally clear.  But, although it cycles, it'll continuously get less intense.  You'll notice an improvement in your skin over time.  :)

thats awesome! im on my 8th... questions... how long have you been clear for? how is your diet? .. because i eat lots of carbs and drink lots of beer... some weeks im clear.. some weeks i have 2 or 3 zits

 

Nice!  Congrats on making it this far.  I was still breaking out during the beginning of month two...I've been clear for a few weeks :)  My diet is actually super random...I eat everything.  I'm not the healthiest, but I do exercise daily.  My diet has never really affected my acne though; I know for some it does.  Maybe if you keep a food journal you can note what might have made you break out.  Other than that, wait out the next month and see what happens!

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.  :)

In Topic: 2 Pumps Of Bp?

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.
