it does work, since being off it for like 3 days by only using BP at night cos im goin on holiday soon and i dont want dry skini n the sun ive broken out in places where i didnt before, i always thought this regimen was doing nothing to me , i was ignorant then but i know that it did help even if it slowed down healing. as soon as i get back from spain im getting my ass back on that regimen and i'll stick it out to the end

Good Luck once you get back on it, but you will probably have to go through the whole 'purging process' again, whereas if you get back on it now when youve only been off for 3 days you could probably get away with it :)

Why don't you just use a really high SPF sunscreen, or you could try just doing it at night so at least youre still getting some BP on your skin? :)

Welshboy, well don't feel bad. Some people don't believe until they do what you have done. You reduced your bp and began breaking out again.

At least now you know it was The Regimen, and not just your change in diet.

I think you could manage doing the Regimen while you are on vacation, if you wanted to. I've done it on lake trips and such, no hassle really.

Anyway, have a fantastic vacation, try not to let your skin ruin it for you and let us know when you get back!

When you apply the bp, it goes down deep into the pores. If the surface amount washes off in the water later, at least some still got in the pores to kill bacteria. And really, my big concern with you right now is also sunscreen. Your skin is sensitive when on acne medications, if you use nothing to protect it, you are going to FRY!!

It's your decision naturally, but I think you will regret not using some sort of protection from sunburn.

Well, I didn't necessarily mean pics of YOU. I understand about privacy and all. I just meant some pics of the scenery, the sea. Maybe a jelly fish or a seal! lol.

Anyway, have an awesome time!

i jus dont think welshboy wants to

his plan is and has been from the start

To quit the regimen that "isnt working"

an fry his skin on holiday

by goin in the salt water an then tanning

coz his skin wil clear up doin that on HOLIDAY

then he wil come back an skin wil go mental

an we wil get lots of topics like

"back on the regimen an stil not working"

he is very impatient an changes products hourly lol.

bles him he is trying its jus frustrating wen all he needs to do is stick to a simple regimen but he wont
