Fine lines since using DKR?

Recommended Posts

I don't know if it is from the drying nature of BP or what, but since using the DKR regimen (for almost two weeks now) my face has fine lines, especially under my eyes!! I am only 24 and I look 44!!!!! Is this normal?

How has the regimen been working for you?

BP dries your skin out which shows wrinkles more... dry skin also ages you quicker! That's why people with oily skin tend to get less wrinkles than those with dry skin. BP also directly creates free radicals on your face which also contribute to aging.

I think BP can be good short term to get things under control, but I really disagree with long term use of it like Dan suggests!

Apply extra moisturizer where ever you're having trouble after cleansing, or after BP, whichever works best for you.

Its normal, probably from overly dry skin, they aren't permanent, just keep moisturizing until they go away, but it might be a month or two, or at least until your skin calms down and adjusts to the BP.
