Here's the story. I started the Regimen in November of last year. It worked well enough that by February I was happy and I tried to phase the Regimen out. At the time of using the Regimen, I was using AHA on my forehead only. Eventually I phased out the BP, only washing and moisturizing (AHA on my forehead still). Eventually I got a few clogged pores so I decided to use AHA on my whole face. Well it was probably a mistake. I broke out so bad (everywhere but my forehead) that I had to start using the BP again. Now here's my question. Now that I'm back to BP twice a day, will that reduce the IB from the AHA? My forehead is so clear and so smooth, I want the rest of my face to be like that. Plus I have tons of clogged pores on my chin that are driving me nuts. Any ideas?

Oh and I've been on the Regimen for 5 weeks this time.

Is there a chance the since I'm using the BP and AHA together (instead of just AHA before) that the breakout could be less?

To be honest, I don't really know. I've only ever used AHA in conjunction with BP, so I can't compare the purge with what might happen if someone were only using AHA.

Ok. I think I'm gonna experiment with just trying it on my nose or something, that way if I do purge my entire face won't be broken out.

Thanks!
