Dryness

Well, I had great acne clearing results but in the last couple of days, my skin has turned to one giant, nasty scale. I'm thinking I started out with way too much BP. I was under the impression that because I've used BP so many times for so many years, and that I had stopped using proactiv about a week before starting the CSR, that I could start with the full amount.

Let this be a lesson to you people who want to do the same thing! These pictures were taken AFTER I piled on the moisturizer.

I plan on skipping one day of BP application, then starting again but at the minimal amount (1/4 of a finger). I will progressively build up the level, one week at a time. I'm sure I will probably have some breakouts in the meantime due to overly dry skin and very little BP, but that's ok. I know I will eventually get this regimen to work for me!

As you can also see near the bottom of the picture, I have a few small and painful zits where the dryness is most concentrated. This is a lesson in balancing BP and moisturizer, that's for sure!
