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!

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
