Day 1: After watching Dan's Regimen Instructions on YouTube countless times over I decided to begin..
I began cleansing the skin using the Cetaphil Gentle Daily Cleanser, I used 2 good pumps as it will not lather up as well as Dan's Cleanser. However after using a bit more cleanser and 20 seconds of rubbing in my hands, I was able to form a nice thick lather.
Its worth adding that I'm preforming the Cleansing routine in the sink, as I feel the shower would be too hot for my skin and could cause irritation.
After washing off the Cleanser my skin felt v. clean but did not feel dry or flaky like all my previous face cleansers/washes/scrubs had made my skin feel!
After waiting 5 minutes i applied the Duac. As Duac is 5% BP as well as a gel, it was impossible to achieve a coverage similar to Dan's guide without using a whole tube!
I used a pea size amount and dotted it on my cheeks and jawline (my problem areas). The Gel meant it did not cover as much area as a cream however i thought I'd start slowly and build up like Dan suggested.
After 15 minutes i applied the moisturiser, I used a finger tip and a half and dotted it in the same areas as the duac whilst gently applying.
As my skin is very sensitive my spots, pimples etc had become very red (at the time of the photo) due to a combination of the Duac and moisturiser.
I will admit my cheeks especially where very itchy, the only relief was when i rested my face on my pillow!
After waking up in the morning, the initial redness had calmed slightly as it had time to settle during the night. And to be honest looked more like a rash than anything! I will not do anything to my skin until the evening again as I do not want to experience the redness and discomfort during the day, especially whilst being at Uni!
I will try and update every few days! Feel free to comment!
