    Going To Start The Regimen, Few Questions

    Regimen Question

    If you can tough it out, keep using twice a day and your skin should eventually get used to it. If you really can't stand it, go ahead and cut back to once a day, but if you do, you can expect a bit more acne.
  3. I use vaseline around my eyes and have only ever benefited from it. The only downside I've found is that it can get IN my eyes and blur my vision a bit and it's difficult to get out.
  4. You can apply the bp just to your problem areas if you want to avoid too much dryness. As for your neck, I'm not sure. When I first started the regimen, even though I was only applying the bp to my face, my neck got kind of irritated. It did go away after a while, though. Try testing it on a small patch of your neck to see how your skin reacts.
  5. Cleansing pads would be too rough if you're trying to follow the regimen to a T and I doubt it would do as good a job of cleansing.

    Using The Regimen 3X A Day Instead

    If I workout in the afternoon, I'll still shower off afterwards but I won't wash my face and just apply some moisturizer after. A few hours after applying bp in the morning, it's not really active anymore anyway, so I think it's fine to rinse it off.

    How Long Does It Take To Get Rid Of The Dry Skin?

    I had been on the regimen over 6 months and the dryness was still really bad even though I was using cetaphil moisturizer, jojoba oil and AHA+ and my skin wasn't even clear, so now I only use 1 pump of Dan's bp at night, AHA+ every other night and just moisturizer in the morning. I still have a little bit of acne now but the spots are always pretty small and it doesn't bother me at all, it's miles better than it used to be.

    Need some regimen order advice

    It is normal at first for the moisturizer to burn because your skin still isn't used to the panoxyl. I assume you're using 5% which might be too high and needlessly irritating. If you can find something around 2.5%, hopefully your moisturizer wouldn't burn so much over top.

    Shower time question

    no
  10. good for you! I had a similar experience myself/ Almost clear via the regimen. ELO is cool.

      Help Finding Suitable Moisturizer

      You could try mixing Dan's moisturizer with Cetaphil or Cerave or a teeny bit of Vaseline so you get the calming effect of Dan's moisturizer and the lasting moisturizing effect of whatever you want to mix in.

      Orange skin

      Are you using jojoba oil? I had orange skin that would come and go when the dryness was really bad. I thought it was because I was putting jojoba oil on top of a thick layer of dry skin so it didn't really absord but instead just sort of stained the dead skin. It would go away if I exfoliated like crazy but then I would break out around my chin and forehead. Eventually I reduced the amount of bp I was using and it went away. If you're not using jojoba oil, it's probably just a lot of dead discol

      Good sunblock

      I use Cliniderm gentle protective lotion (spf 45) or Nature's Gate mineral kids spf 20 sunscreen. Neither seems to aggravate my acne and they both have mineral medicinal ingredients so they're safe and gentle I order them from well.ca

      sunburned face! I'm in need of good sunscreen.

      I order Cliniderm gentle protective lotion (spf 45) off of well.ca. It has titanium dioxide and zinc oxide as the medicinal ingredients so it's super gentle and doesn't break me out at all. It does leave a white cast but I don't think it's so bad and it would just look like sunscreen to anyone who noticed anyway.

      First Week down.. but "wrinkles"

      1 pump was probably too much to start off with. If your priority is to get rid of the wrinkles, then yeah, stop using the bp. Otherwise, keep bumping up the bp by half-pump increments every week. You could also use more moisturizer I guess.
