Should I stop using the regimen?

Recommended Posts

So I've been on the regimen for over two months, maybe about 9 weeks or so. And my face is red, greasy, still have breakouts, and have red marks that will not go away. My question to you guys is, should I continue this? Yes, it has helped reduce my number of breakouts, but is it worth it? Also, what could I do if I stopped using it? My face gets greasy only after the moisturizer, but i need it to keep my from flaking, its cetaphil lotion, seems to be the only one to stop flakes effectively. Anyway, would salyic acid in the morning and bp at night be a good idea? Maybe the nutragena line of acne stress control? Any help or advice on where I should go from now is appreciated.

Try to give it 3 good months of strict use, then if you feel it just isn't working out you can seek other treatment options.

In the meantime you might want to switch moisturizers if that is the main problem for you. There are others that are less greasy than Cetaphil.
