In Topic: Breakout After Stopping Bp? Or Tea Tree Oil?

18 December 2014 - 08:01 PM

When you stop one thing and start two others, it can be difficult to tell what may be the problem or if it's all of them.

 

If bp was controlling your acne and you stopped using it, the acne flare may be from that. However, you also introduced two oils at the same time. If I use anything with oil (I can only use jojoba oil at 1-2 drops) I get breakouts fairly quickly.

 

Bottom line, don't make so many new changes at once. If you decide to discontinue one thing, keep everything else in your skincare routine the same for a month or two. Only make one change at a time.


In Topic: Is It Okay To Use Jojoba Oil And Acne.org Aha+ With The Regimen?

That article refers to other products, not the Acne.org product line. You may add in the jojoba oil from the start, although Dan does suggest waiting about a month before adding in the AHA lotion.


In Topic: Dry Flaky Skin After 4 Months On The Regimen!?!?!

Are you using two full pumps of moisturizer twice daily with 5-6 drops of jojoba oil each time? Have you tried adding the AHA lotion to help exfoliate the flakes? http://www.acne.org/faq.html#dry

 

If the weather is cold and dry where you are, you could also consider running a little humidifier in your bedroom at night. This adds moisturizer to the air and in my experience can make a big difference during the winter time in the skin.

Make sure you are taking the time to gently but thoroughly massage the moisturizer into the skin well. It should completely absorb and disappear. It should not be leaving a visible layer on the top of your skin. Try also adding some extra jojoba oil. That should help whether it is dry flaky skin or dried up moisturizer remains.


In Topic: Question About The Regiment

With prescription medications you need to use what your doctor instructs you to use. You can't really use Benzamycin as generously as Dan suggests with 2.5% benzoyl peroxide for The Acne.org Regimen. Main reason is the little container is small and you would never be able to get frequent refills from your pharmacy to use it generously. Also, it is a combination product of bp plus antibiotic, so you need to use it in the prescribed dosage.

 

I don't know what country you are from but surely there is some form of over the counter benzoyl peroxide?
