Days 1-2 are going well....

Recommended Posts

So everything came today and I am super stoked!!!

My plan now consists of starting with just the cleanser and moisturizer for a few days, as my skin is currently tight and dry! Hoping that may ease some of the potential irritation.

Also going to start patch testing the BP on my inner arm to make sure I have no adverse reaction!

Here's hoping!! :dance:

That sound's like a good plan Andib.

Continue with the cleanser x moisturizer until your skin is fully hydrated.

Afterward, slowly add in a low amount of benzoyl peroxide.

Start with 1/2 pumps and slowly build up, and again, do not worry that some people were able to get to 2 full pumps on their fourth week. This is your skin, adjust to it.

I'll be rooting for you. good luck.

Thanks for the encouragement!! I started the regimen yesterday morn....1/2 pump Bp...I am seeing some initial clearing and shrinking of pores..but am sure that this is just the quiet before the storm! Day 2 and the sunburn-look is beginning....itchy skin too...but no flaking as of yet. I shall persevere!

Try not to touch your face despite the need to scratch.

1/2 pumps is great to start at, some people try going for 1 pump, others 2, which of course we all know is a fail unless they had previously used BP before.

Be sure to make a regimen log and update us.
