Looks Like I Aged 10 Years In 4 Months On The Regimen?

Recommended Posts

i just finished the regimen, and it definitely worked for getting rid of my acne, but now my skin looks terrible, and looks old. the worse thing is that i now have wrinkles around my mouth/laugh lines, which definitely make me look like i'm in my 40's, and i only just recently turned 20.

It sounds like your skin is very dehydrated. Have you tried AHA+ to help with hydration?

I AM in my 40's and don't have wrinkles like you have described and I have worn BP on my face every day for the past few years, but I'm careful in making sure I moisturise properly.

havent used AHA+ yet, but i was planning to use it to deal with red marks/hyperpigmentation. will definitely use it to see if it helps too. i've always moisturized twice a day since doing the regimen. i cut down bp use to only once a day 2 weeks ago and i stopped using it completely 2 days ago, and even then i was still moisturizing twice a day(i've used both cetaphil and cerave moisturizer)

I second the AHA+. I occasionally get this when I overdo the BP one night or just seemingly out of nowhere, and it's definitely a combination of lack of moisture and dead skin cells. The good news is it can be managed and it's not in any way permanent, just a temporary annoyance.

okay nvm, it turns out that i burned my cheeks pretty bad while i was on the regimen. i really overdid it, and i used a full pump and a lot of it was concentrated on my cheeks. currently am going to stop using the AHA+ and moisturize twice a day with jojoba oil.

dude r u sure tho?

wasnt it said to use 1 full pump actually?

do u have any pics?

did u get rid of the smile lines?

how did u got them in a first place if not bp then? did u overconcentrate bp on those areas too or something?

do u have naturally sensitive/somewhat thin or normal skin?
