Happy Monday! This morning starts my fourth day on the regimen. I only use 1 1/2 - 2 pumps of the cleanser and moisterizer because like I said before 3 full pumps is WAY too much. I don't know if that is a bad idea but I feel like I am wasting it. With the cleanser, it is only on my skin for 10 seconds and to me I don't need to use 3 fulls pumps. It's not on there long enough to need that much but if everyone says you should use 3 and it works, then I guess it is a bad idea to use less. But I am willing to give it a try and see what happens. Also 3 pumps of moisterizer is just insane. How big does Dan think my face is?! There is only so much of a circumference to cover. I don't want to cake it on if I don't need to. Maybe I only think that because my face isn't dry yet so after a few days or weeks it will be and I will need more. I also think I am not using enough BP. I know that you aren't suppose to use a lot at first but I feel like I am not using enough at all. I am probably doing something wrong but who knows.
I haven't been exeriencing anything negative (yet) other than slight itching and a little burning but it doesn't bother me and doesn't last all day. I am not any more or any less dry than I was before starting the regimen which is good. We will see if that changes. That little group of pimples that were forming were definitely going, not coming. Although after they were gone, a bigger one popped up but it really isn't that big and hopefully will go away fast. The pimples I had before starting the regimen are fading but I don't know if that is because they ran their course or if the regimen had anything to do with them. I guess I won't really know if it is working until after the old ones have gone away. I haven't noticed any new pimples except that one I already mentioned so that is good and hopefully there won't be any new ones.
I am anxious to see how my skin is going to react over the next couple weeks. I am expecting the worst with purging, flaking and itching but hopefully I will be one of those people who won't experience that. So here is to hoping!
