Is this Expected?

Sup, I had a weeks rest on the regimen because I was so so dry (was using the regimen for 7 months), and now heres were I am.

I am very dry now, red in the face and my spots have worsened, at this point, is it expected and when should I see an improvement?

The daunting thing is I only do this once a day, I couldn't imagine what I'd be like doing it twice a day.


My regimen is:

Wash with standard soap

Wait 15 minutes

Apply PanOxyl 2.5% BP

Wait 15 minutes

Apply T-zone moisturizer

Thats it.

Well "standard" bar soap can be very drying and do you apply the T-zone moisturizer all over? You really need to moisturise all over, especially when starting.

Stocko, DON'T DO THAT MAN!! :shock:

You should use an oil-free cleanser designed specifically for the face. Bath soaps are irritating and they cause more breakouts. I can say it because I used to wash my face with regular bath soap for 13 years and it was a mess!

What's more, BP dries your skin a lot. That's why you've been red and dry all the time!
