Was Starting the Regiemn a Mistake???

Recommended Posts

I have been on the regimen for a week now, and although my acne was improving I was veru dissatisfied with how red/dry/flaky it was. And when I moisturized my skin looked all shiny and greasy and I didn't like this either. I just looked fake. So I decided that maybe I would stop for a few days to try and get my skin back to normal and then maybe start up the regimen again, but much more slowly, maybe only applying every other day to begin with. But now, after about a day of no cleanser, BP, or moisturizer, my face is soooo dried out and flaky. What is wrong here? Will my face ever go back to the way it was or I am stuck having to put on moisturizer forever?! Help me! Ugh!

your skin should eventually go back to the way it was before. If you are dry and flakey from not washing/bp/moist. Maybe you should just do a gentle wash to get the flakes off.

That is why Dan recommends starting off with such a small amount, to hopefully decrease the extreme dryness that some people get in the beginning stages of the Regimen.

If you do decide to give it another go, please start out slowly with a teeny amount.
