How Long do you spend doing the Regimen each day?

Recommended Posts

Hey

Just wondering how long it takes everyone to do the regimen?

I seem to spend at least 30-40 mins in the bathroom in the morning and at night at the moment and I have been doing the regimen for 5 days now.

I previously used to do the regimen once a day due to time constraints but I was still breaking out. Also is it normal to break out badly when increasing from once a day to twice a day for the regimen? I have broken out something terrible in the past couple of days since starting to do the reigmen twice a day.

Thanks

Happy

Hi it usually takes about 30 mins but in between washing and applying the creams i get dressed and have breakfast so it doesnt seem so long.

Im not sure why you are breaking out since starting to use it twice,i do know that i broke out quite badly tho for the first couple of weeks and now its week 3 and its getting better,so stick with it!

Thanks for your reply Loulou, so you have been on the regimen for 3 weeks? Are you seeing good results after the inital worsening? Does your skin feel dry?

I was just gonna make a post on this subject. I spend 15-20 minutes applying bp and 10-15 with moisturizer because I apply AHA to some parts and use different moisturizers on the spots where I do apply bp and don't apply it. At night add another 10-20 minutes for shaving and basically I spend between 1 and 2 hours every day doing this regimen, major pain in the ass cause it feels like I wake up so early to get ready in time for work and then get off for a few hours and have to do this face thing then go to bed early so I have time in the morning for it again. It works though, and I'm hoping after a few more months I'll be able to use less bp which will greatly reduce the amount of time it takes, right now I'm using a lot of it cause I'm paranoid about breaking out, once these red marks fade I will be able to experiment with less bp.

When I get up, it takes me exactly 20 minutes each morning to brush my teeth, brush my face with a (different) toothbrush, wash my face, dry my face, and apply BP. I do other stuff while waiting for the BP to dry like check my email, pick out clothes, get dressed, and so by the time I'm done with that stuff (10-15 minutes later), then I apply my moisturizer. Same deal in the evening. I don't really consider the time waiting for the BP to dry to be part of the regimen, though, but if you really want to, I guess I spend upwards of an hour each day on my morning and night routines. It definitely doesn't feel like that to me--it feels much quicker than that.

I dont let my PB dry long maybe one minute then i apply moisturizer. Total time to cleanse, tone, pb, and moisturize its about 7mins tops. at night i mask and steem at least 4 days out of the week. and that adds about 14mins tops so at night 21mins tops maybe less. I dont know what it is with every one leaving it on for 10 to 15mins is to long. I think my way better because the pb partially mixes with the lotion and abosrbs nicely and moisturized absorbtion for maxium relaxation of the skin to provide a relief of joy. That was gay what i just said but im leaving it thier!
