The Regimen

Recommended Posts

So I'm two months in with "The regimen" and I see no results! I have been using it exactly the way he explains it in the video and see no improvement. I notice that my face is sensitive now and when I touch my face it quickly turns red and looks irritated. My acne has gotten really bad, and I'm thinking of quitting. Should I just go on Accutane, my dermatologist recommended it but I chickened out because of the side effects. Any advise with either "the regimen" or "Accutane" would help THANKS !

This is a picture of my face after football practice

That photo is quite blurry and far away to make any real comments, but have you slowly incorporated more product into the regimen? Like, you didn't just start with one/two pumps straight away? - Major redness/irritation is caused by too much too quickly. Have you tried adding jojoba oil to help with irritation? It's standard to give a new routine at least 3 months to figure out if it's for you.

I'm going to give "The regimen" one more month because I really don't want to go on Accutane.

-also I go to the gym every morning and when I wake up I cleanse my face with the "cleanser" but I can't apply the "benzoyl peroxide" because it gets in my eyes when I sweat. Then later the day I have football practice and agin I can't use the "BP" so I have to wash it off. What can I do in my situation?

Give the regimen some more time, these things need time and as you mentioned you remove the BP so it really doesn't have time to work on your skin. I suggest, applying the BP after morning gym time and then again at night after football practice. It should be more or less 10-12 hour intervals between applications.
