Has anyone tried clinique 3 step regimen? An alternate to it?

I have been using this clinique 3 step regimen for skin type 3 (combination to oily skin, with T area oily and comfortable cheeks). Its works fine for me. I have got oily and acne prone skin and this 3 step product hasn’t induced any reaction. But it’s quite expensive (the introductory 3 step kit costs 1850 INR which lasts about one and half months.)  I So I want to shift to an alternate regimen which is at par with it.  How about I use Sebamed Cleansing Foam followed by Sebamed Deep Cleansing Facial Toner  and Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel (I really love this moisturizer) Any suggestions?

Another question I have, is it really necessary to use a toner?

Thank you!

‘suggestions to get rid of oilyness’

Hi there, firstly thank you very much for the work you are doing. it’s simply fabulous. you know, i came across your site 6-7 months ago when i was doing some google search on ‘how to get rid of acne and oilyness’. I took time to read every basic information you have put on the site. then i zeroed in on using AHAGLOW,HIMALAYA NEEM FACE WASH & ALOE VEDA ALOE -VERA moisturizer. And now i have successfully got rid of my acne problem,,,there is not even one. But my concern still remains, because oilyness has not gone from my face.I’m still facing the same amount of oilyness{ more or less the same }. Could  you be kind enough to give some tips on what i should do further for the oilyness bit? And what about sunscreen?? I’m using none since i don’t go out on broad day light. I would appreciate your reply. Thank you again. SUPERB WORK-KEEP IT UP. And one more thing that i hope i have stuck to the proper way of posting a question.

Advise on moisturiser-> acne medication

Hey all,

I am currently on acne medication and using clindamycin phosphate and tretinion as prescribed my dermatologist. She also recommended to use cetaphil moisturiser. Every thing was fine till yesterday day. Suddenly started observing some darkening in skinn tone. Before throwing questions let me tell you what changes I have made to my daily routine.

even though cetaphil moisturizer was prescribed I never used it. I usually apply biotique Caret face and body location while stepping out after office. This keeps me moisturised for some time. Yesterday day I felt flanks, dry, itchy skin and applied cetaphil and one more was I changed my batch soap from dove to biotique revitalizing basil and parley soap. I feel either one of them would have caused this. I point my finger to cetaphil. Do you guys really think cetaphil would have caused this. Does any one blame biotique soap for this ?.

Can cetaphil moisturiser be used on face daily at bed time ?.

I have one more question on CTM for men. will probably post it in a new thread..

Excessive oliy skin with inflamed pimples even after following starter regimen

Hi Sonal/AM/friends,

I have a very oily skin with open pores, whiteheads n blackheads which soon turn into painful pimples. I have started following the starter regimen as mentioned on Acne Mantra and strictly following it. Morning : Sebamed foam facewash
Evening : Kaya soothing cleansing gel followed by triacneal.
I still get excessive oil on face in the morning which goes after washing but again comes after every 3-4 hours. n worse part is that i am still getting painful inflamed small pimples on my cheeks(problem area on my face) which starts with red inflamed skin and turns into a white bump. i have continued 1st week regimen for the second week as well but no change in oiliness n i’m still getting 2-3 new painful pimples everyday :(. Also, from past 3-4 days i have started taking baidyanath rakhtshodhak bati but i could’nt see ny effect on the oiliness of my skin (3-4 days might seem too early but i heard that it starts showing results from the very next day itself)
Is their any mistake i am doing in following the regimen or if anyone could suggest a solution to my problem?
