Flakiness suddenly disappeared

Recommended Posts

I have been using acne.org regimen for around 2 years.

My skin always used to be really extremely flaky.

But in last half year there have been no signs of flakiness at all.

Instead I have other problems: my skin looks dull and is full of rashes that look like clogged pores but are not zits.

I didn't change anything recently in my regimen, except I added supplements: omega3, zinc, vitamins, selenium.

Does anyone know what's wrong?

I doubt its the regimen causing this and so your new supplements may very well be the cause. Zinc and selenium should be fine, what other vitamins are you taking? I would also drop the omega and see how your skin reacts.

Also for your complexion, have you used the AHA?

I am taking vitamins A, B, C and E.

I tried using AHA one night, but my skin was very irritated from it.

I think supplements "cured" flakiness, which used to be an indicator of dryness for me. More flakes, more moisturizer. So now I don't know how dry my skin is and I don't moisturize it enough?

This is a mystery and i think is a case for trial and error. Since you developed a rash i wouldnt rule out one or more of the supplements as a 'bad egg'. The best way is to let your body tell you how you react after you take a supplement and if you get an edge, cut it out. Sorry i couldn't be of more help but good luck!

I figured it out.

I was so afraid of flakiness that I did everything to prevent dryness. In the end my face was never dry.

So here is one very important rule I was breaking:

Wait for skin to COMPLETELY DRY before applying BP and moisturizer.

I have some flakes now, but my skin is clear. :surprised:
