Switching Between Two Cleansers?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm on Dan's regimen and it's working really great for me. I was using the Dove Beauty Bar for Sensitive Skin and still getting breakouts (although they were much smaller and less frequent!) so I thought I should switch over to Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. I was at the store and picked up some Cetaphil cleanser but unfortunately it was for "Normal to oily skin". I used it anyway thinking it wouldn't be a problem and I really love what it's done for my acne. A few old breakouts cleared up and some stubborn under the skin stuff formed heads and some of that's already almost gone. However, my skin hasn't been this dry since I first applied BP! It's constantly red and flaky and painful and tight and just overall gross. I was thinking I could just use the Cetaphil cleanser at night and use the Dove Beauty Bar in the mornings. Would this be a good idea? Would it be better to just spend another 11 bucks on the gentle cleanser? Or just stick with Dove?

You should just stick with one cleanser for day and night. I've hear dove beauty bars clog pores, probably bc of the moisturizers in it. I personally didn't like cetaphil bc I have really oily skin. But if its getting rid of your acne keep up with it! They make a moisturizer that works wonders on flaking and dryness; it's called cetaphil restoraderm. Maybe that will help. Oh and Walmart makes an off brand of cetaphil that's a few dollars cheaper. Hope this helps!
