Post Your Regimen Before And After

You guys are more than welcome to use any of those photos for the site. I have an album here but don't keep it as up to date as my thread. I would ask that if you want to use them for purposes other than the acne.org site (ads, TV, whatever) that I be notified and asked first.
BTW, my new picture on the left is from last Wednesday night - no correcting or color adjustments. Yeah, I'm THAT clear right now, thanks to the DKR. (Most of my makeup had worn off at that point, too.)
Morning: Dan's Cleanser, 1 1/2 pumps BP, and 1 pump Dan's moisturizer, Coppertone Sensitive Skin SPF, and a light dusting of mineral powder makeup only to even skin tone, not to cover up anything!
Night: Dan's Cleanser, 1 1/2 pump Dan's BP, 1 pump Dan's moisturizer.
(1 pump is with the new style pump.)
Progress: I AM CLEAR! And I mean completely clear. Even my hormonal acne is gone! I barely use make up, I don't have red marks. Only thing I have to be careful with is washing off the sunscreen well at the end of the day. If I slack for a day or two, I will get a whitehead on the side of my nose or something small on my chin. That's it.

Basically get a low effort topical like differin or something more harsh if that doesnt work and just start living the life you want to live!

If anyone cares to read this and I manage to stop 1 person to avoid going on Accutane, then its served its purpose.
PM me if you'd like to chat. ACNE is ENTIRELY curable through natural ways. Please don't feel pushed or pressured or helpless that you think you must resort to this drug.
I'm not a crazy natural person (nut job lol) just a 27 year old guy who has been through it all and can offer genuinely good advice. You can see by my profile how long i've been around this forum.

I agree with the person who said they don't have many 'before' pictures because they didn't like being photographed with acne. I don't have many but I attached 2 'before' pics in the black shirt. I was wearing makeup to cover it up but it looked horrible and the marks were still visible. It actually got much worse than that sadly but I did not have photos of that.
I also attached 2 'after' pictures (in the swimsuit & the close-up). I don't wear makeup at all anymore and I don't need to.
I've managed this success with the simple acne.org regimen, products altered a little.
It's the same morning & night. I wash my face with the Neutrogena transparent face bar for acne-prone skin & once it's dried I apply 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide cream (CVS brand that mocks the Neutrogena on-the-spot; I've found the CVS brand works better than Neutrogena for me, for some reason).
Afterward, I apply Jergens Natural Glow Facial Moisturizer because I've found that the BP seems to make my face a little paler & I like to balance it out. It doesn't really do much in the tanning department, actually, but it moisturizes efficiently and isn't oily.
I do this when I wake up & before I go to bed and it hasn't failed me yet. I've been on this regimen for about half a year and I'd say this is the only thing that's worked fully. I am SO glad to have found this site and regimen or I'd still be battling with painful and unattractive acne.

The pictures are still being processed >.<, hopefully they'll be on soon cause i feel like people want some sort of concrete evidence and my experience is pretty solid.

Second one is unretouched/no Photoshop. Mark under my right eye is a broken capillary, just to be clear.

I'll take some before pictures, and then get the after pictures to you when I can.
I only have mild acne, but hopefully everything will work out
