    I Steamed My Face Two Days Ago

    It could mean that hot water causes your acne. So try not to wash and shave with hot water or steam on your face for at least 2 weeks and see if you have any success with this strategy. It worked for me.

    Red Itchy Bumps

    So for over a week now there have been some red itchy bumps on my face. They are definitely not pimples and don't show any signs of becoming one. They are somewhat dry and rough. I've tried to spot treat them with BP and AHA but they seemed to get worse, so now I'm just putting ice and moisturizer on them. This helps reduce the inflammation but only for some time. They just don't go away! I attached a pic. I've been on the regimen for roughly 5 months now and that's the first time I experien

    Reducing Dosage Of Bp?

    Thank you very much for your response! Even though I'm replying now, I read your comment several days ago and I decided to try reducing the dosage right away. Hopefully I'll stay clear, we'll see. Now I'm doing the Regimen evenings only, one pump BP. If that doesn't work, maybe I'll first try 2 pumps before going back to twice per day.
  4. I'm sure this question has already been asked several times, but I really want to get a response just for me. Basically, I've been on the regimen for 6 months now but only the last 3 of them on Dan's products. For the last month I've decided to use only 1 full pump morning and evening and I've still managed to stay clear. Now I'm thinking about making the dosage even lower and using 1 full pump once per day. The main reason for this is that BP makes my skin look somewhat older. Scars are als
  5. Many people see improvement 2-3 months after they begin with the Regimen, for some it may take even longer. I'd suggest stick with it! If you read the boards, you'll see that many people have a problem similar to yours. By the way, I'm already 3 months into the Regimen and although my face has definitely improved, it is still rough and flaky (yes I've tried everything you mentioned above). Some people actually have success with using the Cetaphil moisturizer at night though I haven't tried i

    Double Edged Razor Blade

    Double-edge razors never worked for me. My facial hair is thick and dark and when I shave with one it's literally like I didn't shave at all! Plus, it is super irritating for my skin. I can't believe that there are so different opinions on this. Some people absolutely love it while others hate it...
  7. I was careless enough to use a moisturiser like that for 1-2 weeks at the beginning of the regimen. I was getting some awful sweaty sensation on my face and it took me too long to realise that the salicylic acid was reacting with the BP. After I switched products, my face became much better in just few days. By the way, I plan to use salicylic acid to ged rid of blackheads (i have a lot of them on my nose) but the experience I've gathered keeps me from doing it. Any ideas how should I introd

    Growing A Beard On The Regimen

    I just use the cleanser I have for the Regimen (mine is Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash but there are plenty of options which could work good for you). I don't think it's a good idea to use foam specifically for shaving as you may irritate your skin further. You already put so many stuff on it while on the Regimen (with SPF even more) and you don't really need that. Do you count the applying cleanser when shaving as tr cleansing part to the regimen? Or do you shave with cleanser, then cleanse

    How Long Until You Saw Improvements?

    During my fist month things didn't seem very bright either. I think my first moisturizer was partially to blame (I don't use Dan's products as there are not accessible to me) because it contained salicylic acid and it took me some time to realise that it was reacting with the benzoyl peroxide. Also I switched between many razors before learning how to shave as less irritating as possible (the Sensor Excel just wasn't cutting it, quite literally). Now I'm in the sixth week. I already applied

    Growing A Beard On The Regimen

    I considered this at one point because my facial hair is dark and grows fast. I just couldn't get a smooth shave by just shaving with the grain, even the Sensor Excel irritated my skin a lot because I would always glide over the same spot many times. I personally can't recommend growing a beard. When I don't shave for a long time, my face becomes oily and itchy and I just don't feel clean. As you have already noticed, applying benzoyl peroxide while having a beard is a messy task and applying i

    New Moisturiser

    I am currently using the Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel. It does the job perfectly and after trying countless other products, it's the only one I'm happy with. I think you can't go wrong with it. Some people recommend using the Eucerin DermoPurifyer Hydrating Care cream. I tried it but you have to use a lot of it and it still doesn't moisturise as well as the Sebamed gel.
