Switching bp spot treatment to regimen

Recommended Posts

Ive been spot treating with bp for the past 4-5 months, I started off with the regimen, but I soon just spot treated. I remember breaking out from bp in the past, or else it might have been from something else im not sure.

Im just wondering if anyone knows if i start the regimen now will I still break out at week 3 or 7 or watever.

I use the bp gel over my entire face now, followed by cetaphil moisturizer with spf 15.

also my face has burn burning a little. And im getting some cystic acne, ive only been doing this for a few days. However this could be attributed to something else.

I'm thinking it was something else that broke you out in the past, not the BP :think:

What cleanser are you using? Make sure you use something very gentle, and cleanse your face QUICKLY and softly. It should just take a few seconds, really. Then apply BP all over (or wherever you're prone to breakouts). Use plenty of moisturizer, twice a day.

I'm not sure where the sudden painful cysts are coming from :confused: But I do know that when I began the regimen, I broke out something awful around week 7.

You have to be consistent and follow the regimen to a science. The main things are gentle, quick cleansing; LOTS of bp (after your face has gotten used to it) ; and moisturize as often as you need to, even throughout the day.

Oh yeah, sometimes the SPF of some moisturizers could cause a bit of stinging when you first apply it.
