5 months on. Enlarging Pores and Discoloring are occuring...

Recommended Posts

First, thanks Dan for this informative site and the Regimen.

I m happlily cleared of acne, apart for a little here and there in the areas that BP couldnt reach like near-nostrils etc.

Now, I have 3 new challenges

1. Flaking, I think jojoba will fix that.

2. Enlarged pores, my pores seems Bigger n Bigger. The old ice-pick scars too. I m not sure if a cleared skin made those more visible.

3. Discolouring. Maybe you call it pigmentation. I see that my skin from the 3rd month onwards is getting offcolour brown spots here and there, even in the areas that were acne free years ago.

Could it be Summer Time?

Could it be my Eucerin Moisture cum SunBlock (spf15) is causing the problem?

I m only in the sun averagely 10-15 mins a day.

I m using benzacAC 2.5% day and night, Night moisture Cetaphil

So experts... what do you say or reccommend?.

Thanks in advance.

1. Yea, I think jojoba oil should fix that up.

2. You may want to try something that will exfoliate. Maybe one of the AHA lotions like Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion or Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion. The exfoliation should help refine the look of your pores, and should also help with the flaking and the discoloration you mention in problem number 3.

3. See number 2, it may be sun exposure or overly dried skin. I really think an AHA product will help with that. And yes sunscreen is important so keep using it or maybe use the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion since it has AHA and spf in it.
