face is red

Recommended Posts

I've just started the regimen for about half a week and have noticed my face is very red now. How long would this last and what is causing it, BP or the Amlactin moisturizer I am using with the regiment?

It's most likely the bp. You are in an adjustment phase and it should get better in time. However, you may have started out with too much bp too soon. We usually recommend new people start out with a small amount of bp, perhaps a pea-sized blob, and use that for the first week. Then gradually increase it over the next 3 weeks so that by week 4 you are using the full amount of bp.

If you began with a lot, you may want to decrease it back down and take your time with it.
