DkR + my regimen? Comments?

On week 3 now. I was wondering if you can or cannot use Differin with DKR.

Morning :

Wash with DK - pat, wait 5-10 min

DK BP - 3/4 pump wait 10 min

DK Moisturizer -3/4 pump

Night: I tried this for about 5 days.

Septra (Oral Antibiotics)

Wash with DK - pat, wait 5-10 min

Differin - wait 30 min

DK BP - 3/4 pump wait 10 min

I think the DKR regimen is working on certain types of acne, but not on the super small whiteheads. Odd.

Wondering some things:

1) Is moisturizer req. for night? Nobody's gonna see you, and I tend to think the more crap you put on your face = worse.

2) How do people get up to 2 pumps? I use 3/4 of a pump and its generously coating most of my face already.

3) Red + flaking, how long does it take for this to go away?

thanks. >_>

I hate this redness and the flakiness, but the acne seems to go away a lot faster.

I think you should just stick to dan's regimen until your face is fully clear. I used to use Differin and it made my face really really dry. Plus i dont think it worked for me at all.

and to answer your questions.

1) You mentioned that your face was flakiness and stuff, so i think you should since it helps with flakiness.

2) Im at 2 pumps and my face absorbs the bp really fast now.

3) It got better after a month for me but everyone is different i guess.

I dont think differin really WORKS for me either, but I just keep using it since my derm has been telling me "its the important part". (before I started DKR)

I never had any side effects from differin, its like wiping nothing on my face, but whatever.

2) I think my one pump is huge, one of my pumps looks larger than the 2 pumps on the website picture. Maybe I oughta cut down a little.

3) The BP stings a lot for 30 min - 1 hr after.

4) Ill try some jojoba oil. Ive been moisturizing 5+ times, but the flakiness comes right back.
