Question before starting the regimen

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm new to this board.

I'm also having acne a couple of years now.

I've been usin BP 5% quite a long time now but it didn't help so well. I guess that is because i neiter used a cleanser nor a moisturizer. I also applied it wrong I think.

Anyway...my question is if i can start the regimen with full amount of BP because i've used 5% like a year now ?

Or should I really start with the small ammount again ?

Thanks in advance !

You can probably safely begin with the full amount. But, if you notice too much drying early on, you may need to drop it back down for a few weeks.

Good luck!

Thanks.

I noticed that if i use BP like Dan tells us, i'm drying so much more... At least that gives me kind of a confirmation that I didn't apply it right :D

Hopefully I can find some BP with 3 or 2.5% here in Austria :/

I had been using BP 10% before I started DKR but I hadn't ever put it on twice a day. When I started the 2.5% twice a day my skin went completely red, flakey and really, really sore. For a few weeks after that I went back to once a day and then gradually built it up.

Good luck but take it carefully.
