Quick Update

Kicking off WEEK 2...

A few updates:

  • My chin has broken out even worse and now I'm almost positive it was because I used AHA+ on a forming zit. I'm gonna hold off on using AHA+ again until I've been on this regimen for over a month. I don't think my skin can handle that much irritation right now.
  • No new breakouts today, which is good. My forehead still looks pretty bad from an earlier breakout, most likely due to my skin adjusting to the BP. Hopefully things continue to clear and no new breakouts occur.
  • I'm noticing more flakiness, probably becaus I upped my BP amount a bit, especially on my forehead and nose. The only problem is when I use the moisturizer/jojoba oil it makes my t-zone super shiny. I am still figuring out the best way to reduce shine. I tried oil blotting sheets but they don't really work that well. Is there another product that's safe to use with the regimen that reduces oiliness? Also, I read that using jojoba oil for a while will reduce oil production on the face because it mimics the skin's own natural oils, thus the body produces less of its own. Is that true?
  • The first few weeks are always rough when starting on a new regimen. Unlike most acne products, Dan's Regimen doesn't promise quick results. I'm fine with that, but it's also scary because in the back of my mind I'm thinking "What if this stuff doesn't work for me?" We'll see...
