Two Weeks Since Reducing Bp

TTPW4227

919 views

I went one week with only using BP at night and this past week I alternated between using it twice a day and once a day. I found after reducing BP for a while the excessive flakiness and dryness I was experiencing subsided and my skin soaked up the moisterizer immediately after drying from cleansing. Over time though my skin was not as ready to soak in moisterizer, as the dryness caused from BP usage over the years subsided. Now I feel as though its unnecessary to skip BP usage in the morning, though I was enjoying being ready 10-15 minutes faster than before. Also...two weeks later after reducing BP like that, I am indeed breaking out. I have zits all over my forehead which is kind of new for me, even back when I had significant amounts of acne my forehead was never a trouble spot. I will pay attention and try to avoid touching it, perhaps I developed a habit of sleeping with my arm on my head or something. I will remember how quickly skipping BP in the morning helped fix my excessive flaking and dryness and do that once and a while, but for now its time to go back to loyal regimen user mode and clear up this forehead of mine

Hi,

I think you are doing the right thing. It is hard, I use BP twice a day too and it dries my skin. I am pretty tan so I usually don't get a sunburn- but when I use BP and tretinoin I am sensitive to the sun and use an SPF30 Cetaphil Oil Control moisturizer. :)
