  1. For some it might take up to 3 months for the redness to go away. Others have tried to reduce the amount of BP in the morning so it isn't quite as red when going out in public. Maybe use use it awhile longer until your fully clear then move down to a full pump in the mornin instead of 2.
  2. he's right, use only little BP overthe whitehead or it would look amazing visible withredness around it once you apply the sunscreen. Strangly I thouht AHA would make a good spot treatment but all it did was make any of my whitheads triple it's size.
  3. Yes you replace it with your nightly moisturizer two to three times a week, anymore than that and it could irritate your face. Remember , replace it, not use them together. Just making sure if your getting paler and your bodys skin is tan, you could do the same thing I did. Go to a supermarket and grab some Likas Papaya Soap. It whitens skin within a few weeks. I got like 3 shades lighter hehe.
  4. Don't listen to dumbasses. The only people you should trust on this ste is Dan, brandy, cest la vigne, granny, other mods and some very smart helpful people I've seen around. Anyways, Benzoyl Peroxide is supposed to stop a whitehead before it appears. Even after it appears, the BP tens to dry it out and soon scab like. It till fall off and the skin left underneath is sensitive to sunlight. How BP works is once it touches the skin it becomes oxygen and benzoic acid, some medications make you o

  6. lOl sorry Black Gold, I was unhappy when I was posting this cause of something. Ahhhh <3 lol yeah it's best to hold back on the AHA, but belive me, it's good stuff. Balances out skin so well!!! Also gets rid of any scars you might happen to have!! I've been commented on how my skin looked flawless by my moms workers. Use the regimen for another month just like you just told me, hopefully by that time or within that time, your skin's tolerance to this stuff would let it work it's magic. Ma
  7. Hydroquinone is said to cause cancer that's why I stoped using my 2% gel that lightens skin. Anyhow, If I were you I'd start on dans regimen and stop he mumbojumbo you've been using. I'd say start off with half a pump of Dans treatment two times a day and build up from it within 4 weeks. Some take longer than others so if you've never used benzoyl peroxide before, then it is recommended that you stay at half pump for about two weeks. Even so it depends if you have rough or sensitive skin, peo
  8. Lol this sounds like a start early and quit early to me. Day 5, 1 full pump already? Mhmkay. Anxious to use aha? Let there be more acne then, it's your choice. You sound like one of those people who uses too much on their skin. Too many variables doesn't mean it would quicken up your timeon the regimen nor make a better looking skin. Be on the safe side, cleanser, medication, moisturizer. All you need, and some more, Mastercard....
  9. I'd say continue it for another month. Is your skin fully adjusted to the full amount of BP? Sounds like the BP took some time to purge on your skin. Give it a little more and it should be over. You don't want to quit too early you know what I mean?
  10. I switched to an electronic shaver that doesn't need foam in order to shave. Haven't had any breakout since.
  11. About to go research it right now. Will edit and get back to you.
  12. Thanks for sharing. Hope it goes well.
  13. As you said, your clogged pores have reduced. It's clearing up your pores that had been basically "¥£€#ed" before you did the regimen. Some pores will be unclogged without problems, while many tend to turn into small white bumps or a big white head. Eventually they will all clear up and continue to be oxygenated so no newer ones are formed. 6 weeks is close to half way, give it a little more time your almost there. You'll see visible results during the 3rd month.
  14. Doubt that shows much progree but whatever rocks your boat. When I started it out everything seemed to be clearing but then he pimples came up around the 3rd or 4th day. I really hope you don't rush the dosages and give it up to 3 months to show really visible results.
  15. What people don't usually realize is that your not really supposed to do the regimen within an exact 4 weeks dose increase. For certain people, their skin needs a little or a lot more time than that to build tolerance to benzoyl peroxide. What you can do is go back to a pump for a week than slowly increase it to 2 pumps. Maybe within a 2-4 week period. It's all up to your skin, there are actually some who takes up to 2 months to build tolerance. Good luck
  16. lol I tried moisurizers on my eye area too but somehow the skin is to thin that it goes through and burns my eyes like crazy. The only thing I found to work is Night of Olay.
  17. Congrats. Happy for you that the change was a sucess. A little more flakey was probably by the new change in amount. Has the redness fully went away?
  18. Jojoba would last you a long time, doesn't really help out your oil production like BHA does though. It only work when you put it on. Without it your skin will still produce excess oil as usual, but even if you use it, your skin will still look oily. Basically useless for looking less oily but does well on the flakes and hydration. Works OK as a lip balm, hair de-frizer/conditioner,cleanser/flake remover/texture balance. AHA on he other hand will sting you in the beginning but within a week or
  19. Well 2.5% would be well off in the beginning, but the guy did say it got him clear at one point. What I think is that the 10% BP randomly irritated parts of your skin. Continue to use maybe a lower amount to see if the problem gets better or is still there. If you still get breakouts after the first week with a lower dosage then I think you should try telling your mom to buy you Dans Treatment. It's supposed to be a little more gentle than other 2.5% BP's and of course a majorly less irritati
  20. Epiduo is very much like any 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide medication. What makes it unique is that it contains Adapalene. Adapalene in epiduo I suppose contains around 0.1% and is also known to be used in another medication called "Differin". Reviews from both 2.5% BP(NOTS,DKR BP,Proactiv, etc) and Adapalene(Differin), says that it tends to get worst before it gets better. Epiduo seems to be somewhat expensive and arduous(hard) to get. You can give it a try, but with only a sample amount which is
  21. Use 1 full pump in the morning instead of two. If I were you I'd rather be extremely clear but a little red than having random small red spots on my face. That's just me though. Try a pea size amount in the morning, but hey, if you've done the one a day for over 2-3 months and still no acne than continue to do what your doing
  22. Try and grab your hands on some gentle exfoliants. While on the regimen, exfoliation can be very bad when your currently trying to get used to BP. Don't try and pick it with your fingernails. I used this regimen years ago and always had this when I started. I started over a week and a half ago and not I'm getting flakes but not as much as he first time I've ever tried BP. It takes about the 5-6th week for the flakes to slowly subside, but if your doing it slow like mw, use a low amount, wai
  23. Dans bp, proactiv BP, Neutrogena BP, Epiduo, some others. Goes on clear, yours just might not absorb well or have a vanishing formula.
  24. Blotting sheets, napkin, Kirkland brand tissue's. Basically anything that blots well actually, changing a different sunscreen mightnot help as much.
  25. Hi, I used to use OBAGI Gentle cleanser and today I was at wall greens to buy a new 16oz of cetapphil moisturizing lotion. There I saw the 16oz Gentle cleanser people used for their regimen and bought it as well. I was wondering if anyone who uses this recommends me using it. It doesn't lather well and reminds me of the Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser.
