Q:"Have you been tanning" A: "Ummmm no...."


I have been the regimen for a week - my skin is looking good! I am a little dry (but not too bad). My face is getting dark though! I am using the proactive BP because I have lots left. I use it on my neck too - when I have my shirt off you can see where I use it and where I dont. My neck/face are brown (just a little tanned), and the rest of me is white! I am thinking maybe this is because I am not exfoliating or something. Any advice? Thank you!

this is completely normal and has nothing to do with exfoliation. when your skin is still getting used to the bp, it gets a little bit red. not so much that it looks way out of place (be glad this wasnt worse), but it does make it look like you have tanned a bit. you can either A. ignore it B. use bp less often until your skin gets more used to it (not very effective for fighting pimples though) or C. even apply some bp to other areas to even it out. good luck.
