Is It Really Necessary To Moisturize? I Already Use Aha

Recommended Posts

This is a question for people who don't have dry, flaky skin. I've been on the regimen for over 2 months, and my skin didn't peel at all or flake. I use 2 pumps of BP, so it's not like i'm using too little. In the morning I use BP, and at night, I use BP and then a thin layer of AHA. However, Im still breaking out, and I take a multivitamin, fish oil, zinc, saw palmetto, vitamin D3, and Vitamin E. I Don't know what im doing wrong.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize... You just can't get around that step.. Yes, you may use AHA as a moisturizer but it's not suggested during day hours... If you aren't moisturizing in the am... START IMMEDIATELY!!! that is probably the reason you are still experiencing breakouts... Unfortunately, you can't skimp on the steps for the regimen... You just won't get the same results.. Especially during the winter months, moisturizing is absolutely vital to your success.. Good luck and remember to follow DKR precisely... :)

Agree with NYCQUEEN, you can't skip any steps of the regimen because you just wont get the results. Irritation is one cause of acne breakouts and dry skin is irritated skin. You may not feel that your skin is dehydrated but it is impossible to apply BP and for it not to dry your skin out. So start moisturising generously and gently in the mornings and you should start seeing better results. Good luck! :)
