Using the CSR ONCE daily?!

Recommended Posts

I've been on the regime for about 2 1/2 months now...acne is cleared up and i rarely get new zits...BUUUUUT my complexion has gone all to hell :cry: . My face and neck is red and spotty (not bumpy, just little red colored uneven skin tone dots) and i'm still verrrrry dry (and i use the eucerin dry skin %5 urea stuff). So, would anyone advise or has anyone had success with only using the regime at night and kinda letting your skin heal/prepare for the regime during the day (as in: NO bp during the day BUT STILL cleanser and moisture)? Thanks.

I only do the full regime in the evening - in the morning I just wash and apply moisturizer.

Try using another moisturizer - the Eucerin didn't work for me - it just made me red and I tried it over a long period. Now I just use a "Nivea for men" and it works wonder.

I have the same problem, I tried switching to BP once at night to try and let my skin heal, but after a week or so started getting new zits (which is rare since I started the regimen). So I went back to twice daily and its back to "normal". It didn't seem to help the dryness when I cut back, though I quit after a week. Everyone is different, give it a go and see how your skin reacts. Don't worry about the "rules', people twist the regimen all the time, and some have success.

If your skin is too dry, then you're not using enough moisturizer!

If necessary, reapply during the day! :)

I'm doing once a day right now, and it seems to be working. However, I had mild acne for the most part. I think it depends on how severe it is. For mild to moderate, once a day can work for some people I think. It seems to be working for me (3 weeks in).
