Acne Is Getting Worst

Recommended Posts

I started the regiment about 7 weeks ago and the first couple of weeks you could see that the regiment was working, my skin was getting clear and the redness was going away. But about two weeks ago my skin has been getting EXTREMELY dry, I've always had oily skin and when I stated using the regiment it dried my skin, but now is like I can't even move it, I'm applying the moisturizer with jojoba oil but is not helping. My acne is actually getting worst than it was when I started using the regiment. Is this normal?

The first few months can feel like a roller coaster ride with ups and downs. It isn't unusual to still see some breakouts but if you are using the products as directed, as time goes on the breakouts should become smaller and heal quicker than before. Usually by the third month most cases of acne are under control.

What type of moisturizer are you using and how much? What is your morning and evening routine? Sounds like you may need to ramp up the amount of moisturizer at least at night. I use 12+ drops and two pumps of an extra strength moisturizer at night.
