DKR stopped working

Recommended Posts

I've been using DKR for year and a half and my face has been perfectly clear.

But in last two months I have constant breakouts.

Excluded causes:

- not enough BP

- not being gentle and patient

- too much sun

- not enough water

- not enough exercise

- not changing towels and pillow cases

I have a theory.

I also have body acne, but it didn't get worse.

The breakouts are only around mouth and eyebrows. Before DKR they were everywhere.

I am lately under bigger stress at work and I noticed that when this happens I subconsciously massage these areas of my face.

Could this be it?

I also wash my hair more often and eat less fish.

Is there any other factor I left out? Please help!

If you're stressed out and rubbing your face, that could irritating your skin. Try squeezing a stress ball or something instead for a few weeks and see if your skin improves.

Thanks for advice.

I stopped touching my face at work and it didn't help. And I remember I did this in the past and it didn't cause breakouts.

Yesterday my alarm clock woke me up and I noticed that I have been sleeping on my side and I had my hand between face and bed. I guess it was to avoid rubbing my face against the bed. But my hand was rubbing my face around eyebrows area. I think this is it: I'm rubbing my face during sleep.

Problem solved.

Cause: irritation by contact during sleep.

It took me 2 months to figure this out and I discovered it by accident.

I now sleep strictly only on my back or I at least try not to turn my head to side.

Skin is clearing fast. Frustration is over, I am very happy. :dance:

Hope this will help somebody.

Really? Nice find. I wash my pillowcases every other day and don't touch my face at all. So far, things are going good.

Unfortunately I only got rid of zits around my eyebrows.

I still have breakouts around my mouth. The skin there is very dry and flaky. This was not a problem even in winter.

I tried everything: more moisturizer, skipping BP, skipping washing in the morning, drinking more water, humidifier, better diet, supplements, more sleep, avoiding stress, more sports, more fresh air and sun,...

The skin looks like when you use too much BP.

I suspect there is something wrong with my acne.org moisturizer.

I checked expiry date at the bottom, it hasn't expired.

Could it go bad anyway?

Does the quality fall with time linearly?

Does anything else affect it besides time, e.g. temperature? Average temperature in my apartment is pretty high.

Most importantly: would it help if I store it in the fridge or is that bad?

Please provide some information since there is nothing written about that on product. Thank you very much.

Problem solved. It was the moisturizer. I threw it away and ordered a new one.

Signs that your moisturizer needs replacement (according to my experience):

- it's greasy

- skin remains dry and flaky

- comedogenic: lots of tiny rashes, especially below eyes

- skin looks dull

Hope somebody will learn from my trial & error. :angel:

I have found that I sleep that way, too - to keep my face from making contact with my pillow! I think it actually causes some of my neck pain (the rest comes from bad posture and hunching over a computer...) It's great that you were able to figure out what was causing your localized acne. I have found that I sometimes breakout on my temples, and I think it's from my sunglasses or from holding the phone against my shoulder. All these little things! But it's great that sometimes it really is simple enough to figure them out.
