Sunblock, makeup, toner?

Recommended Posts

1. I was wondering what a person should do in the event he/she has large pores & acne scars, and wants to treat that at the same time as using this regimen AND wearing sunblock everyday.

2. Also, is it safe to apply makeup after the regimen?

How long should one wait before applying makeup

(especially around and IN the eyes, like eyeliner, etc.)

3. Is it safe to go outside in the rain without an umbrella or would water bring the chemicals into the eyes? Should one wait a specific amount of time before doing so?

4. If a person wants to moisturize the area around the eyes or use anti aging treatments at the same time, when should those treatments be applied?

5. What would happen if one were to use only the "BP" and moisturizer without washing face first?

After you've been on the Regimen for a month you can add in the AHA lotion. It has glycolic acid in it which exfoliates the skin. Many people report that it helps improve the appearance of the pores and the skin.

Here's info on red marks and scars. http://www.acne.org/faq.html#redmarks and http://www.acne.org/scars.php

Here's Dan's makeup information. http://www.acne.org/faq.html#cosmetics and http://www.acne.org/blog/2009/04/27/makeup-if-you-must/

I just apply it immediately after moisturizing.

Yes, if you get wet in the rain the bp may migrate to your eyes. Try to have an umbrella or something handy if it is raining.

If you want to use other treatments with the regimen, please read here: http://www.acne.org/faq.html#additionalproducts

Washing the face is important to get off the oil, dead skin cells, makeup, and residue from your last regimen application. You want to apply the bp and moisturizer to a clean surface so the bp can get down into the pores easily.

You may not get optimal results. In other words, your acne may not clear up.

The Regimen works best if it is followed exactly as Dan suggests.
