When used as directed, most people are clearing up nicely by the third month. Let's make sure you are using enough bp and using the products correctly. Please read through the biggest mistakes and take the quiz on this page. http://www.acne.org/regimen-help.html

The product just starts to lose efficacy after it reaches its expiration date. It won't harm you but it may not be as strong as a fresh batch.

You can't really expect results this early on, so try not to discouraged. It is typical to still have some breakouts in the first few months, but as time goes on if you are following The Regimen strictly and precisely, they should become smaller and heal quicker than before. Let's just make sure you are doing everything right and give it more time for now. Please take the quiz and read through the biggest mistakes. http://www.acne.org/regimen-help.html


In Topic: Please Help Skin Isn't Improving

It sounds like maybe your skin is super sensitive and you aren't able to use the full suggested amount of bp, so you aren't getting as cleared up as you would like. Using the moisturizer generously with jojoba oil often helps with this. I'm not sure why jojoba made you red. It's typically very soothing to the skin.

 

My advice: Use two full pumps of moisturizer each time. You didn't mention if you are using this much. You might try adding a few jojoba oil drops to the moisturizer in your hand and give it another try. I wasn't sure if you just applied straight oil to your face or not in your post above, but it works best when mixed with the moisturizer.

 

Make sure you are washing gently and briefly so that your skin isn't irritated when you start to apply the treatment.

 

If you need to go slowly with the bp due to sensitive skin, that's okay, but just remember that if you aren't able to use the full amount you may not be able to get as cleared up as you would like to.

 

Here's more from Dan regarding sensitive skin.

 

Hope that helps!

^ Same here. We don't really have any experience with emu oil but jojoba oil can be really soothing and helpful.
