Am I using the regimen right?

Recommended Posts

I am still very indignant over my breakout which I had for a couple of days ago so I just wanted to see if I am using the regimen properly. I do use another BP which contain 5% so you know.


Quick Shower

Apply the BP (~)2min)

Moisturize (~1min)

I am really pissed of because the breakout I got gave me hugh pimples (some cyst? )which is fairly unusual for my skinn. I am on the edge of quiting but that would be 4 weeks of waste :(

I hope you can give me some good suggestions.

Definitely use a cleanser. There was a period a few years ago when I didn't cleanse my face at all; rather, I just kept applying a sulfur-based medication, in hopes that it would accumulate and cure me. Green gunk started oozing out of my pores after a few days.

@Brandy: What's the reasoning behind waiting a certain period of time between different steps of the regimen?

Brandy, do you have anything to add? ;)

I found a good face wash at my pharmacy. What do you think about this one, I have listed the substance below.

ACO 01 CLEAN Cleansing face wash;


Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate

Sodium C12-15 Pareth Sulfate

Cocamidopropyl Betaine


Sodium Laureth Sulfate


PEG-7 Glyceryl Coacate

Salicylic Acid

PEG-150 Distearate

Piroctone Olamine

PEG-3 Distearate

Bencoic Acid

Zink Sulfate

Fat: 1,25 %

Basiron is just BP in a clinical form. I was about to get it (I live in Denmark) but fortunately I found Dans first. The texture is so much better and you get more for your money. I've been on it for almost 6 months and I can safely say my cystic acne is dead.

Also Dan's cleanser is a godsend. Very gentle and nondrying.
