This is something you should think about and here is my story (no BS) - I was clear for a couple months and today, I have 10+ new pimples, ranging from small ones to the big nasty cysts. Last week, I fell off the wagon from eating MSG. I already knew that MSG causes pimples for me, but I ate it anyway (yeah, that was really stupid!!!). I used to eat sushi (yes, seaweed contains MSG and someone told me that's actually the source of MSG) once a week on Fridays and broke out the next day - it took me 6 months to find that out. I always wonder why I broke out in the weekends and now I know why.

You know, when the dermatologists say that food doesn't cause breakouts, I think that's total BS. I know for a fact that MSG causes breakout for me, and really bad ones too. So if you think you ate MSG food over the past week, this may be the problem. My coworker also had MSG food the whole week with me, but she didn't break out so everyone is different. My GF also eats MSG and it doesn't affect her so it doesn't affect everyone. But I know it definitely affects me. HTH...

Why would this regimen cause a breakout? It seems like this 2nd week breakout thing is a for sure thing during the process of thie regimen - but WHY? What is the cause of this breakout? The bp?..

MSG stands for monosodium glutimate, which give some people headaches/migraines, but for Asians, it's a big hit in terms of flavor enhancement. A majority of the asian restaurants use MSG on their foods. Without it, the food is not so good. But I rather take salt over MSG just so I don't break out.

MSG? Modified Starch Groups? is that what your talking about?

What else kinds of food is this found in?

MSG is unhealthy either way since it's a chemical. You might be able to ask them not to make your order with MSG or see if there is a place near you that doesn't use it. A Chinese resteraunt in my area advertises in their menu that they don't use MSG so maybe there is one around you that doesn't use it either.

okay, you are adding in an extra cleansing session that should not be there.

Just wash twice a day, once in the morning, once in the evening before you go to bed, each time applying your bp and moisturizer.

I would not use toothpaste at all on my face. :hand:

If you need to ice some tough one's, I would do it after the cleansing, before the bp, and not add in an extra cleansing in the middle of the day.

You are using two squiggly lines of bp, that's the correct amount.

What about shaving? Do you shave? (I think you are a guy).

If the regimens been working before and you just broke out now then you are probably suitable for the regimen, anyway most people are unless there allergic to BP or have very severe acne. Try not be be put off by this it is probably just a final 'surge' of stuff coming to surface as breakouts are common in the first 3 months and if you stick with the regimen it will probably clear up quicker than usual and you should be back on your way to clear skin! Good Luck! :)

You have a LONG period of time where you face has no BP on it, in which time the bacteria will be multiplying and causing damage, PLUS You're washing your face 3 times.

Here is what I suggest, skip the afternoon cleanse, if you want to reduce swelling, wrap the ice cubes in a plastic cling film or similar, so they dont get your face wet, but they still take down the swelling.

Stick to morning and evening washes and don't remove the BP inbetween.
