The Regime: Some Questions

Recommended Posts

After creeping on these forums for some time I thought I would finally add to them (pictures attached)

I will try and make this easy to read by using bullet points.

  • Currently only apply The Regime at night, using 1 Pump BP, 1 ½ Pump Moisturiser and 1 ½ pump AHA. I have been doing this every night for the past 4-6 months roughly.
  • Would Class skin as slightly oily (Esp Nose/Chin Area).
  • Do not have to moisturise in morning as skin is not dry or tight

Severe acne before Regime, improved greatly. Physiologically the damage has been done and I constantly think my face is horrible.

Just looking for some advice or for people who have done the below and what the outcome was

Going abroad in July (Spain) so:

  • Can the regime be follow while tanning?
  • Has anyone noticed an increase in UV sensitivity?

Looking to go on the sunbeds 3 minutes twice a week before I go abroad

  • Has anyone used sunbeds while on the regime? If so, outcome?
  • The sunbeds are unique (Collatan, used red/blue light therapy to rejuvenate the skin, boost collagen production and banish blemished while you tan)
  • Sorry for the long post, if you’ve read it then thanks.

Any questions, just fire away!

Hey your skin is looking good definitely not horrible at all!

In regards to your questions I honestly wouldnt use sunbeds with the regimen or without. Everyone knows the risks of sunbeds and Im not here to dictate that but on the regimen your skin is so sensitive I dont think going on a sunbed is a good idea whatsoever.

Whilst in Spain there are people on this forum who follow the regimen and live in hot countries year round and Im sure what they do is to wear a high spf 50 when out in it and re-apply throughout the day.

Ye, still skeptical about going on the sunbed. The only reason would to have some sort of colour before I go away.

I thought that as well, with regime users in hot countries. My only worry (all be it a totally vain one) would be that factor 50 would affect my tan. In general I would say my skin is definitely not sensitive, never had an issue with BP, AHA, BHA in terms of burning/itching etc... Would reapplying a factor 20 be sufficient (if anyone has done this).

I suppose the only way to know is when I actually go...

Avoid the sunbed, and apply SPF while you're away and you should be fine. Also make sure you wear a hat.....if your skin isnt used to the sun you may find that you will start breaking out due to sweating and sun exposure.

ETA: I live in Australia where its pretty hot for most of the year. I wear SPF 20 on my face every day with no issues, but I do wear a cap if I'm going to the beach etc.

Ye, i'm put off the Sunbed. Hardly the end of the world being pale for a day.

In terms of my skin and sun, my skin tans easily and rarely burns. I tend to keep a tan well. I'd say my skin always has a bit of colour due.

If you can wear SPF 20 in AUS and keep your skin in good nick then i'm very hopeful :)
