In Topic: Wedding In Two Months... Need Advice Please!

My advice would be to start slowly so that you avoid irritation, redness and over drying your skin. Don't go for the full amount right away.  Begin with a small amount of bp at bedtime only and see how it goes for a couple of weeks.  Increase the amount or apply bp in the morning too if your skin is tolerating it well. 

It can take a while to see results so don't get discouraged.

Have you tried any diet changes such as cutting out dairy, processed foods and sugary treats?

Try and get enough sleep and don't get too stressed out (probs hard to do with a wedding coming up!)

Good luck.

Hi monica23,

I am quite interested in these products and I haven't seen them before. What are the ingredients in the oil? Is there alcohol in the toner?Can't find the info on their website.

How is your progress?

In Topic: Is Aha + Bp Not For Me? (Redness, Irritation)

Some tingling after applying the AHA is expected but blistering and extreme redness should not happen.  Were you using the AHA for dryness and flakiness?  Maybe just apply more moisturizer because it does seem that the AHA is too strong for you.  Just my opinion.

Do you have any of Dan's AHA (glycolic acid) ?  If you mix that with your moisturizer it does a good job of getting rid of the flakes.


I am quite interested in your post as my daughter wants to come off Ortho try cylcen after being on it for a year but is nervous to do so incase her face goes crazy.


So good luck to you!

If your face has cleared up then you can just use the bp once a day and it should be fine.  I think that it may be better to use the bp at night and use your other moisturizer in the day. 

Don't over do it with masks (once a week is ok) and make sure the mask is not too harsh and is ok for your skin or it could cause irritation and breakouts. 

Just remember to be gentle with your skin and stick to a routine and products that work for you and it will all be good.

Congrats on clearing up your skin!
