Today (day 409) I have about 2 pimples. I have been adding jojoba oil to my moisturizer in the morning, as well as using Dan's AHA+ every evening, but I am still having some trouble with flakes.

Today (day 47) I have been using Head & Shoulders twice a day, and a good bit of the pimples on my back have disappeared. However, I still have a decent number of pimples on each shoulder. Although Head & Shoulders has helped, I do not think it is going to totally get rid of my back acne.
Today (day 380) I have eight pimples. I am still using Dan's AHA+ every night as my moisturizer. It has reduced my flakiness, but I still have some flakes.
Today (day 18) I am still using Head & Shoulders Shampoo twice a day. I leave the shampoo on my back/ chest for about 3 minutes before rinsing. One of my shoulders is much clearer, but still has some acne. My other shoulder still has a lot of acne.
Today (day 372) I have about 3-4 pimples. I started using Dan's AHA+ every night, starting 4 nights ago. The AHA+ appears to be getting rid of some of my flakiness, but I will have to wait to see if it completely rids my face of flakes.
Today (day 367) my face is a little less dry since I started using the DKR cleanser, but it is still flaky. The pimples on my right temple are now gone, but there are still a few on my left temple. I also developed a pimple above my upper lip and a small pimple on my nose, making a total of 4-5 pimples.
Today is the 4th day since I started using Head & Shoulders Shampoo on my shoulders, back, and chest. It appears to be clearing up my body acne, but it could just be my imagination. Basically, it is too early to tell.
Today, I am going to start using a product on my back and shoulders that I have heard great things about. The product I will be testing is Head & Shoulders Classic Clean Shampoo with pyrithione zinc. Currently I have a lot of acne on my shoulders and a small amount of acne between my shoulders and on my chest. I will be allowing the shampoo to stay on my skin for about 5-8 minutes before rinsing it off.
Today (day 364) I have about the same number of pimples around my temples that I had in my last entry. I am planning on using the AHA+ in a few days to see how well it works.
Today (day 362) I have about 6 pimples around my temples, but they seem to be slowly healing. I switched to Dan's cleanser about 2-3 days ago, so I will see if it is less drying than Equate Daily Face Wash.
By the way, for those of you who were wondering, I only missed one application during the 362 days I have been on the regime. The reason I missed an application is because I fell asleep before I had done the regime for the night.
Well, I have not updated my blog in 191 days , but I feel I need to post my progress with the Daniel Kern Regime. At about month 7 of the DKR my skin had cleared up, but it took a while for my red spots to begin to fade.
For the past month I have been having a few breakouts, so I am changing a few things. Today (day 357) I have about 6-7 pimples around my temples. I was using Equate Daily Face Wash up until today, but I ordered the DKR cleanser and I will be switching to that soon. I believe that it will not dry out my face as much as the Equate brand.
By the way, in my last entry I mentioned that I was going to try Paula's Choice 8% AHA, but I quit after about 12 days because I did not like the texture of the product or its effects. I just ordered Dan's AHA and I will probably be trying it soon.
Today (day 166) I have about 5-6 noticeable pimples and my skin is still flaky. I have been using Paula's 8% AHA gel every other night, but it seems to just make my skin flakier. Today I used a wet wash cloth and gently scrubbed some of the excessively flaky spots, so hopefully I will not break out from the irritation caused by it.
Today (day 156) I have about 3 noticeable pimples and my skin is still flaky with a lot of red spots. I started using Paula's Choice 8% AHA gel tonight, so I am hoping that it will get rid of my flakes without causing me to break out.
Today (day 145) I have about 6 noticeable pimples and still a lot of red spots.
Today (day 133) I have about 3-4 noticeable pimples and some of my red spots are fading. I am still using 5/6th finger of BP twice, daily and still have a lot of red spots that are hardly, if at all, fading.
Today (day 123) I have about 5-6 noticeable pimples and a lot of red spots, although some of my red spots are becoming lighter. I am still using 5/6th finger of BP twice, daily.
Today (day 113) I have about 9 noticeable pimples and a lot of red spots. I am still using 5/6th finger of BP twice, daily.
Today (day 111) I have about 7 noticeable pimples and a lot of red spots. I am still using 5/6th finger of BP twice, daily.
Today (day 105) I have about 4-5 noticeable pimples and still a lot of red spots from old acne. I am using 5/6th finger of BP twice, daily.
Today (day 101) I have about 4 noticeable pimples and still a lot of red spots. I am still use 5/6th finger of BP, twice daily.
Today (day 97) I have about 6-7 noticeable pimples and a lot of red spots. I am now using 5/6th finger of BP twice, daily. I have also started eating sugar again and have had no adverse effects, yet; although, I am still not drinking milk.
Today (day 90) I have about 6 or 7 noticeable pimples, but some of them look as if they will heal shortly. I still have a lot of red spots but they seem to be fading slightly. I am still using two-thirds finger of BP twice, daily. Also, beginning on March 8, 2008 I almost completely stopped eating processed sugars and I totally took milk out of my diet. It looks like the changes to my diet plus the DK Regime are really helping my skin to clear up, but I need more time to really be able to tell.
Today (day 85) my face still has about 6-7 noticeable pimples and I still have alot of red spots. Although, some of my red spots are beginning to fade slowly. I used two-thirds finger of BP for both applications today.
Today (day 81) I have developed a few more pimples and have a total of 7-8 noticeable pimples, plus lots of red spots. I have also increased the amount of BP I am using to two-thirds finger, twice a day.
Today (day 75) I have about 6 noticeable pimples and lots of red spots. I used one- half finger of BP this morning, but starting this evening I used two-thirds finger of BP. I will continue to use one-half finger of BP every morning and two-thirds finger of BP every night until my face adjusts to the increase.
