In Topic: Week 2 Question

Yesterday, 08:19 AM

We typically suggest easing into it to minimize harsh initial side effects, so by now you are in the second week so you are using it twice daily and your skin is experiencing the hardening phase. Read more here: http://www.acne.org/faq.html#burn


Am I understanding you right that you did not use moisturizer during the first week? Do not skip the moisturizer even if you feel you don't need it. It helps prevent dryness.


While a bit of burning is a common sensation, it should not "burn like hell". You are either using too much too soon or you may be sensitive to it. If you feel that you are experiencing something out of the ordinary please discontinue and see your doctor for advice.

In my experience if I try to apply it in a humid environment like the bathroom right after a shower, it takes forever to absorb and dry. Make sure your skin is thoroughly dry before trying to apply and do so in a dry room. You can also try using a small fan to blow on you while you are applying it.

The Regimen works best when it is used twice per day, everyday. So yes, if you are only doing it once daily you may not see optimal results.

The first few months may feel like a roller coaster ride with ups and downs, breakouts and clearing, but as time goes on the breakouts should become smaller and heal quicker before. Usually by the third month most people are clearing up nicely.


To answer your question though it is very typical to see a breakout as you are approaching week 2.
