So what's with the redness STILL after almost 2 months?

Recommended Posts

I thought redness was temporary? I've been using only enough to cover my face, nothing more, nothing less, and I STILL am beet red after nearly 2 months of the regimen. I'm not flaking or dry anymore, but my face looks like a tomato. What's causing this? Like I said I don't use hardly any bp (I'm not breaking out) and yet my face still looks horrid because it gives me a sunburn look...why?

Oh, and I'm using purpose bar, dans gel, and eucerin dsr just so to let you know.

Don't get in the sun so much and change lotions. I was on Tazorac for a while and had the same problem. I'm an athlete. so it turned out that I wasn't using enough lotion. I'd be sweating with dry skin, which is what causes the redness to begin with. I changed to the lotion Vanicreme (I think that's how you spell it.) Anyway, it's precribed by a doctor, but it's worked wonders! Make sure you don't go out in the sun with it until you've been using it for a week. Anyway, best of luck. Redness really sucks. I feel for you. :(

I don't really go out in the sun much. I go to school, and none of my classes have much sunlight. Not to mention the fact that none of the classes are outside. And after school I don't do much outside, I usually stay inside if I'm doing things with my friends.
