First Week: Day 6



This morning I woke up and did the same thing I have been doing which is only using the benzoyl peroxide once a day but instead of using it during the day and only cleansing and moisturizing at night I switched it so I'm cleansing and moisturizing for the day while doing all three steps before I go to sleep. I found it easier this way so that if my face is going to get red I don't have to deal with it during the day.

Effects I had this morning:

When I cleansed my face my skin felt slightly tight afterwards. I was quite happy to notice that there was very little redness but there was an abundance of dry patches on my face. After I moisturized like crazy I didn't deal with dryness/flakiness the rest of the day.

Effects I had tonight:

I was quite surprised when I applied my benzoyl peroxide tonight and it didn't burn or sting at all. There was a little burn when I applied my moisturizer but not like it had been a couple of days ago so I'm taking that as a good sign.

As for improvements that I have noticed, my skin is getting even clearer than before, I have spotted no new pimples in the past 4 or 5 days and almost all of my blackheads are gone. Plus my skin tone is becoming very even as well as more of my pores in my problem areas shrinking considerably.


Hey good to hear you are making progress! Im on day 14.. my face used to burn when i applied the BP/moisturiser but it doesnt so much now!

Although my eyes burn like crazy sometimes!!

Awesome! Hopefully the same will happen for me. Has your skin gotten extremely dry in some spots? Because that's what I'm dealing with the most right now.
