unclogging pores on this regimen

Recommended Posts

Hi can anyone recomend a way of unclogging my pores but still using the csr,i have been doing the csr for about 8 weeks now and my skin is looking alot better,but i am left with lots of under the skin raised pimples that show is certain angles and lighting,they dont hurt or anything so i think they r clogged pores. Im already using a moisturiser with lactic acid in but it isnt helping.

Is it worth me changing form using dove soap to a simple face wash,as im thinking it could be the soap that is causing them,but im too scared to change anything incase i break out.

Thanks

I don't want to be discouraging, but I found that while the Regimen killed all of my inflamed acne, it did nothing for clogged pores. I'm trying Retin-A now to help with those, but will probably go back on the Regimen after I've cleared them out, since it's cheap and effective.

Yeah i dont think bp will do anything for the clogged pores.

How are you getting on with retin a? Where did u get it from and is it easy to get hold of?

Thanks

Retin-A is from a derm, its a prescription. But many people have used Green Cream, which does the same kind of thing only you can buy it yourself offline. Its expensive though, but they do have sample sizes. I noticed BP does nothing for clogged pores also!

loulou,

you might go ahead and consider switching cleanser. That soap may be part of the problem, would be worth a try.

I use Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Cleanser. One thing I must note is that it contains Salicylic Acid, which I read in The Regimen that it does not work well with Benzoyl Peroxide. Works pretty good for me, though.

hey i use the basic bar of soap on a wash rag and really gently clena my face for about 10 seconds, just smoothing it over my whole face...if you have clogged pores a wash rag isn't harsh enoug to irritate just pores, but if you have acne it might i dunno.but it works fine at reallly cleaning your pores and getting all the crap off you face ;)
