What Are Products That Go Beyond The Regimen?

15 August 2014 - 11:34 PM

So I have very acne prone skin, but this year I discovered The Regimen, which cleared up my skin! I had moderate acne before this, and The Regimen has worked miracles for me.

Anyway, I used everything acne.org told me to - the cleanser, the 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, the moisturizer, the AHA+, the jojoba oil, the suggested sunscreen options.

I know this site says NOT to introduce any other products into this regimen... but now that my skin is clear (aside from the unfortunate leftover hyperpigmentation and pitted scarring), I find that I am obsessed with not only having clear skin, but I also want baby-soft, glowing, overall healthy looking skin! So I want to start introducing other products into The Regimen, regardless of this site's advice not to...

Has anyone had any success doing this and finding products that won't break you out? What did the new products do for your skin? How do you fit them in with The Regimen?

Someone has suggested Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque to me... let me know if you happen to recommend that as well!

Thanks!


Does Retin-A Permanently Diminish The Appearance Of Pitted Acne Scars?

07 August 2014 - 06:38 PM

I cleared my skin up through the Regimen from this site but am considering switching to Retin-A since I've been left with pitted acne scars.

 

I was wondering if Retin-A permanently diminishes the appearance of pitted acne scars or if it only does that while you're using it.


My Skin Is Basically Clear Now - Will Switching To Retin-A Break Me Out?

07 August 2014 - 06:34 PM

So back in February I started The Regimen from this site and it has been my holy grail. Cleared up my skin nicely besides the occasional break-out. However, I have been left with pitted acne scars and have heard Retin-A can do the trick. But I've also heard your skin on Retin-A gets worse before it gets better.

 

Since my skin is almost clear at this point, will I still get the initial bad break-out from starting Retin-A?

I am still very acne-prone -- whenever I skip The Regimen more than once I have a break-out, 

 

I was also wondering if Retin-A permanently diminishes the appearance of pitted acne scars or if it only does that while you're using it.
