For those struggling with redness/flaking

Recommended Posts

Up until a few weeks ago, I had pretty bad flaking and redness with the regimen. I thought I'd share my tips for getting rid of those.

Flaking: This advice is all over these boards, but as an additional confirmation, once I started adding 3-5 drops of Jojoba Oil to my moisturizer (mixing it in the palm) my flaking cleared up within a day or so. I tried just using more moisturizer but it didn't help. Trust Jojoba!

Redness: I created this post because of this issue, and I don't see many people suggesting this advice. Wait AT LEAST 15 minutes between BP application and Moisturizer application. Previously, I would wait 5-10 minutes, and soon after putting on moisturizer my face would tingle/burn a bit and turn red. Immediately after I started waiting 15-20 minutes after putting on BP, the redness disappeared. Why? I don't really know, not a scientist. I can speculate that the BP hadn't fully absorbed, even though it FELT like it had.

Worth a try at least, the only problem is it stretches out the regimen time even longer (takes me a good hour from shower to completion). Ah well, it's been very worth it for me!

I just want to second this as I have found the same thing. Thanks for posting it!

i noitce that when i apply the jojoba oil on my face with moisturizer, it also dislodges the flakes. Do you guys get the same thing?

I like to put on a thin layer of jojoba under my BP. if I put any on top it doesn't soak in at all and just stays on top.

Can't use jojoba because i don't have any.

can't use olive oil in my moisturizer because it breaks me out for some reason, and i can't apply it before BP for the same reason.

Flakes are getting a little better though, so i'm happy.
