Clear - how long can I use?

Postby literati » Mon Jun 15, 2009 4:45 pm

I started using Obaji Clear all by itself, with none of the other products, because I just wanted to get rid of darkening freckles as I got older (late fifties). It worked beautifully!! After 12 weeks my skin was gorgeously, well, CLEAR! How long can I keep using it? I've been using it twice a day for over a year and suddenly I am developing red dots and broken capillaries on my cheeks and nose. Not completely age-related because it was so fast! I mean in a couple of months I went from looking in my mirror just to admire my pink and white complexion, to checking every 10 or 15 minutes to see if some new dot has popped up on my cheek. Need advice badly!!

Clear should not damage the skin, i.e. thin it out, cause more vascularization, etc. Sadly, we do age - and literally, one day veins do appear. :(

My moto is always to use as little as possible to get the desired result... can you cut back to once daily? 3-4 times weekly? Etc. Experiment a bit. :)

Also, remember your skin is more sensitive to the sun when on these products, so even light exposure can cause irritation, and well, redness.

If your skin tans at ALL - your sunscreen isn't working.

hope this helps
