My bp regimen log

I started the bp regimen 2 days ago. i am using oxy on the spot benzoyl peroxide 2.5% cream once a day. i am also using 4x250mg oxytetracycline tablets a day.

Day 1:

my skin felt a little bit tighter and drier but apart from that nothing else happened, as expected.

Day 2: My skin has started to peel and my acne has got considerably worse. I have had a few more breakouts and the spots seem to be redder. It is also drier and im having to use a moisturiser because of the peeling

DAY 5:

I have just started using bp gel twice a day, using about 1/2 the length of my index finger to measure the amount as shown on this website. I have already started to notice a difference, i am havng a lot less pimple coming up and the ones i had are now shrinking. The red marks are even starting to disappear. I hope that this regimen carries on this way.

DAY 8:

My cheeks and forehead have cleared up pretty well, and i havent really experienced many new spots in these areas. Although, around my chin and jaw line i am still getingf quite a few spots, i have two breakouts at the moment, one either side of my chin. My face is very dry and peeling, i am thinking of either reducing the dosage of bp on the spot cream or only using it once a day.

DAY 9:

I am continuing to get many large spots on either side of my chin. My sides are clearing up really really well, and i am exceptionally pleased about this. I am goign to step up the dosage of bp gel a bit tomorrow. My forehead is also clear and my skin is getting smoother and my pores seem to be tightening. I hope my chin clears up soon though...

DAY 12:

One of the breakouts on my chin has now almost disappeared and the other one is a bit smaller. I am still getting new spots on my forehead and on my cheeks, but there is an improvement. I am happy with the results so far as it has only been 12 days. I am using bp on the spot, twice a day, each time i use about the lenght of my index fingers' worth of bp gel.

DAY 13:

Well, my skin is progressing i think. the sides are definately clearing up and the breakouts on my chin are becoming smaller, although i think they are still active (im not touching them because im not supposed to according to the regimen). I am using 1 fingers worth of bp oxy on the spot (2.5%), twice daily. and i am now using a cleanser and also moisturising more often as my skin becomes dryer and flakes more. If the breakouts on my chin went then i would be so happy because io would look so much better and i would definately be able to see a huge improvement from going on this regimen. When should i step up to 2 whole fingers worth of bp? thanks in advance for any replies.

Sounds like you are doing well. As far as upping the BP just gradually do it like you have been... just go slow. I know my skin can take it so i just jumped back into doing dans regimen last night. Its a bit dry but not too much.

Anyways what kind of moisturizer are you using?

Day 17:

Basically my skin looks crap, my chin is covered in white heads. As soon as they go, some more pop up. My sides arent really improving much anymore. I have had these 2 chin breakouts for about 2 weeks now :@.

DAY 18:

Im using just over 1 fingers worth of oxy on the spot 2.5% bp cream now. My chin looks awful, i have lots of big whiteheads and many red spots under the skin. My sides are getting better but this doesnt really cotemplate for my chin. My foreheads has one or two active spots, but they usually go quite quickly. If my chin cleared up then i would be so happy because i would have hardly any spots left. My skin is getting noticeably smoother qhich is a good point.

DAY 20:

I am really starting to like this regimen, as my sides and forehead have cleared up really well. My chin is still my main problem as i still have the two large breakouts, although they havent flared up as much as they were a week or so ago. I am now using 2 whole fingers worth of bp. I have also bought a specialised moisturiser and cleanser for spots.

Day 22:

Well i am clearer than a month ago, i only have a couple of active spots on each cheek, the rest is red marks so i may start using bio oil. And yes i still have the two giant breakouts on my chin lol, they just dont want to go. I am drinking lots of water every day, about a gallon :o. My forehead is quite clear atm, i only have one or two active pimiples there.

DAY 26:

Im using about 2.5 fingers worth of oxy on the spot cream twice a day now. It seems to be working on my cheeks and forehead fairly well, in fact i dont really have any spots at all in these areas, just red marks now, but they'll go over time. Unfortunately my chin is still covered in spots, tho not quite as many as before. I have one or two cysts on my chin and a few other spots sad.gif i hope these go soon.

DAY 33:

Im really annoyed at the moment, my skin isnt showing much improvement, although my sides and forhead dont have many spots left and are mainly red marks, i cannot say the same for my chin. I still have many cysts and other spots all over my chin and every time one goes a new one takes its place. This is so annoying, when should i start to expect more dramatic results?

Hello

I'm new here, but I've done quite a bit of research into the ingredients that are in various BP's. Neutrogena's Acne on the Spot contains to ingredients that actually cause acne. They are: caprylic/capric triglyceride and emulsifying wax nf.

I've researched the ingredients in Dan's BP and there is nothing that will clog your pores and cause pimples. You might see a more complete clearing if you switched. If you do decide to order and need something in the meantime, you might try Stridex Day & Night. It has two products in it, skip the day gel. The night lotion is a 2.5% BP with safe ingredients that will not cause more acne. It is still not as good as Dan's, but it should tide you over.

Also, with your lotion-make sure you use something labeled "noncomedogenic"

This refers to whether or not it clogs most peoples pores. Choose carefully, I like to use things with very few ingredients. Plain Aloe Vera is also an excellent choice.

Hope this helps.

xxoo

Day 41:

Not much has changed in the last week, my chin has cleared up a bit, i dont really have many spots left on my forehead or cheeks, just red marks mainly. My skin seems to have adapted to the bp gel, because i dont flake as much as i used to a few weeks ago.

DAY 56:

Im also using SA cleansing wipes now. I have noticed improvements, my cheeks are far better than the were and the breakouts on my chin have stopped (touch wood). Mainly red marks now and a few spots on my jaw line and a few on my cheeks. I also have a lot of small bumps under the skin, how can i get rid of these?

Day 64:

Not using the SA wipes any more because they were aggravating my skin and making it flake too much. I really am beginning to notice some positive imporvements, i can now wake up in the morning to see no new spots. I have got many under the skin but they are going and the red marks are slowly fading. I hope this carries on.
