In Topic: Off The Regimen For A While Then Re-Started It

When you stop using it, your skin is no longer accustomed to it. You will need to start all over as a newcomer and go through the "hardening phase" all over again.

 

Don't ever jump right back in at the full amount (I know, you learned the hard way).

 

Start over just like you did in the very beginning. Just a pea sized blob once per day for the first week. Same amount but twice daily on week two. Gradually take about 4-5 weeks to work your way back up.

 

Good luck!

If you have sensitive skin, go easy with it. Maybe introduce just a pea sized blob one night and see how your skin reacts. The AHA lotion is very versatile so you can use as much or as little as you need or can tolerate.

Please see my reply to your other thread. Unfortunately it can be hard to predict how long you may be acne prone. Parents experience may give you an idea but it isn't a sure fire indicator.  About the only thing you can do while waiting to grow out of it is either just live with it or treat it. The Acne.org Regimen works very well on its own if you want to give it a try. http://www.acne.org/regimen.html

Do you have The Acne.org Moisturizer? It works well when used generously, and extra jojoba oil added to any moisturizer gives it a boost. You might give Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion a try. It usually helps severely dry skin quite well.
