  1. Hell y'all! I've read other forums and general advice from The Regimen's website, tips and tricks, etc., but I want to know if anyone out there is able to relate to my specific case in hopes of some beneficial advice. My skin in mainly dry/flakey along my jawline and under my chin, but as of this morning the dryness/flakey skin has progressed to my cheeks and slightly on my forehead. I'm 18 years old, and I have mild-moderate acne. I am on DAY 8 of the Regimen. - Morning: One pump of cl
  2. Is this normal??? Please answer me.. After washing my face, I see my face which looks like a snake.... This morning, I even tried to peel it off.. and I managed to do so a lil bit.. but was a bit scared coz was worried to cause further problems... It is exactly like I am wearing a colourless mask on my face.. I can't talk easily nor smile.. Because it's so dry and covered with a layer of my dead skin which I can see and peel.. My skin is covered with something like a dead skin...
  3. Everytime I take a nap for about an hour and wake up my face is dry and tight and flakey allover. I also wakeup feeling very dehydrated sometimes with a headache and achey body. It seems to happen almost every time I take a nap and the same thing always happens. When I go to nap my face is doing great and is mousturized from my morning regmine stil so I don't understand. My eyes will also be red and dry. It's almost like taking a nap triggers some kind of weird severe dehydration in my body. Whe
  4. Hi, Not sure what to do now been battling acne for a few years now, (I'm an 18 year old male) and it is really effecting my confidence and making life difficult. I would say that the current state of my acne now is moderate to serve still get cysts and noduals but has calmed done a bit from its worst state earlier on in the year. I also have widespread acne on the chest and back. Both my body and chest acne seem to go through major breakout phases every few weeks. I have less active zitz alt
  5. What's up guys. I've been on the regimen for 2 weeks now, both facial and body and I started with mild/moderate acne for the most part. After a while my face started to develop intense flaking, so I looked like The Thing from Fantastic Four. I fixed that by using AHA mixed with the moisturizer regularly. Then it got to my chest, initially right above the collarbone, where my skin got so tight I felt like it would rip if I stretched my chest. At this point my skin doesn't feel tight anymore, bu
  6. I am real going crazy ..... How terribly dry and burning my face is???? It is unimaginable.. I could hardly smile literally.. really... I have real oily and dry skin at the same time.. Dan's moisturizer wasn't rich enough for me.. so I used Loreal's future C something.. this is better than that.. but still feeling a lil bit of driness and burning!!! my face is like.. literaly burning.. and face is so red.. And the area around nose is peeling .. lots of flakes.. what the hell is going on wit
  7. Which Skin Type Ages Faster?

    For thousands of years, people have been obsessed with the idea of eternal youth. Most of us want to look young as long as possible, but as we get older, our skin starts to give away our age. The question is, do some skin types age faster than others? Although the research on this is preliminary, some findings suggest that dry skin might age faster than oily, acne-prone skin. In other words, there may be a...
  8. Hey peeps! Iv’e been using jojoba oil mixed with moisturizer twice a day for a month and a week and im still flaking like crazy. I have noooo idea about what i should do to take care if this flaking. Any help please?
  9. So I started taking my acne seriously and getting into the wonderous world of acne treatment products. I'm using a non-comedogenic facial cleanser paired with 5% benzoyl peroxide. I use the cleanser , pat dry with a towel, wait a couple minutes until its dry then I apply the 5% benzoyl peroxide. But here's my problem ! Once I applied a generous quantity of it. After a little while I feel it starts drying up. Leaving a weird flaky feeling . I don't think its my skin but just the product drying u
  10. I have been cleansing with sulfur soap and then using a manual razor to get all of the flakes on my face clear before I go on to use Dan's BP and then moisturizer. Thing is, when I do this, my face is literally 100% stripped dry! but with hardly any flakes (which I notice tend to accumulate through the day anyway). Would it be better to prevent/get rid of acne to keep exfoliating and clearing my pores, or to be much more gentle and not try to exfoliate (leaving the face considerably flaky and us
  11. This is the same as the jojoba oil method with one addition. Simply mix some jojoba oil with bicarbonate of soda, do it so you have enough to generously apply jojoba oil all over your face, with some bicarb of soda, enough to thicken it very slightly, but only so your adding a sort of 'grit' texture to it. Apply it all over your face before you shower/wash your face on the normal regimen process, I sometimes do it morning and night, always before I shower/cleans face. Rub slightly, bui
