Do you want to quit the regimen?

Recommended Posts

For those of you that want to quit or “add to� the regimen. Read this. (click on the links for more info)


Stop using over-the-counter medications that contain alpha-hydroxy acids or salicylic acids. While your skin is irritated, stop using over-the-counter products that contain these ingredients, which can irritate the skin causing redness, dryness, and peeling.


Astringents, exfoliators, masks, and toners. These products do not help clear acne. In fact, these can aggravate the skin and make acne worse. These products also may make it more difficult to tolerate prescription acne medications, so it is best not to use these when treating acne.

I’m on day 8, and I know how tempting it is to add something to the regimen or give up. I urge you to stick it out and give it a chance.
