Flakiness And Reducing Bp



Do you flake on the Regimen?

  1. 1. Do you flake on the Regimen?

    • Sometimes, but it doesn't happen very often.
    • Yes. Everyday.
    • Nope not at all!

I've decided that I'm going to try reducing the BP I use to once a day at night time. I will still cleanse and moisterize in the morning like usual but I am tired of having flaky skin. It's the most persistent around my hairline but sometimes effects other areas of my face as well. It's been four years and I haven't really figured it out. I exfoliate now and then which isn't good for maintaining clear skin but I don't know what else to do. Besides, I'm 19 now and hopefully my skin has calmed down a bit. I will start this today and see if I break out in two weeks or not. If not and the flakiness does get better, well then my treatment is going to last twice as long and I will have no fear. ALSO, for those of you who like to swim, if you have dry skin issues like me, try to take some jojoba oil with you. I guess these are just little issues we need to accept for the fortune of clear skin.


I use Cetaphil oil control moisturizer starting today. My skin finally got so f'n dry that it cracked. I don't know what the hell to do. I use bp (not from the regimen though). I use benzaclin and benzoyl peroxide 5% when I run out of benzaclin. My skin gets soooo dry but then it's oily at the same time. Yikes. My moisturizer says it works well with acne medications so it should not interfere with my treatments. Peace!

Yikes! Yeah hopefully that helps! I know Dan says 2.5% BP is the best kind to use to avoid harshness, maybe that would help too. :o Peace to you as well!
