A lot of people tend to burn after they put moisturiser on near the start of the regimen. Are you using a moisturiser with an AHA as at the start of the regimen this may be too much which is why it is stinging. Also you could try waiting the full 15 minutes between BP and moisturiser applications to make sure the BP is fully absorbed and so is not reacting with the moisturiser.

Also most people get red at the start of the regimen as part of your skin becoming accoustomed to BP so try not to worry too much about it becasue it should start to decrease with time :)

Well I was hoping this CSR BP would stop me being red. I've used PanOxyl for 2 years so surely my face is accustomed to BP.

As for you Berg, dont worry mate, apply the BP at night, then when you wake up your face will be alot less red, and you can look natural when you go out.

Read my post above mate. Apply BP at NIGHT!

Also get some tissue paper and get rid of that slight shinyness that you have, or some blotting sheets.

redness is simply somethin that wil fade within a few days

until then just blame it on sunburn lol

or miss an application in the morning so ur skin looks normal through the day is my advice

how much bp are you using?

You should start the Regimen by using about 1/4 of the recommended full dosage. Maybe decrease the amount you are using.

Some redness and dryness is just part of topical acne treatments, it can't always be avoided in all people. But you can use less and maybe skip a treatment, let your skin settle down, then begin again with teeny amount.

ok, I think we've located the problem. You mentioned using too much bp and putting it on 3 times a day. That's a problem. And also I believe that moisturizer you are using is medicated with salicylic acid, which will also cause redness and dryness.

Try to stick to the Regimen exactly as Dan describes.

Gentle unmedicated cleanser, 2.5% bp, umedicated oil-free moisturizer. And only twice a day.

During the first week you should use only 1/4 finger worth of Dan's CSR gel, The second week should be about 1/2 finger CSR gel, the third week 3/4 finger CSR gel, and by the fourth week the full dosage of one full finger length.

I would try using like 5 small blobs of BP cream chin, nose, forehead, left cheek, right cheek.

Fairly small amounts but all of your face gets some rub it in slowly and gently and use a very gentle moisturiser for 1-2 weeks then move up..

Trust me not that much of a big deal. The exact same thing happened at the exact same time with me. I blamed it on sunburn, lol. But dont stay in the sun too long. The redness will last about three days but less and less each day. Eventually it'll turn red for a few min. in the morning after moisturizing. Oh dont be suprised if you break out the first few days on the regimen, dont panic itll mean that its working.

hmmmmmm u dont "break out" as such, ur skin sometimes jus reacts strange thats all

i never broke out initially, i cleared up within days

but i didnt moisturise as i didnt know i had2 as i hadnt found this site, so my skin went dry and then broke out due to irritated skin from dryness

make sure u moisturise from day1 an u shud be fine

last friday i wound up using way to much bp...so my face was red and burning for like 2 days,,my face is now back to normal and i told my dermo yesterday about the regimen and he said to not do it b/c i have inflamitor ance and the regimen works perfectly for ppl with blackheads and that have greasy faces. so he told me to use a tiny bit of 2.5 bp on my face i bought the cvs brand of the nuetra gena on the spot cream and that i should use it @ night and to not use the cleaning bar anymore ,and to use a tiny bit of cortizone cream in the a.m , only like 3/7 days a week..
