I was on the boards at one point earlier this year under a different name and I stopped DKR (bad of me, I know), but I was having issues with flakiness and it was frustrating. I was under another name, but I can't remember what it was or anything about my log in, so here I am again.

So here's what it looks like right now; I just got out of the shower.
Week 01 Front

Week 01 Right

Week 01 Left


My hope is to get better in time for my wedding (March 10, 2012). I know I won't be completely clear and perfect, but I want it better than what it is.

I'm on Week 1--I started Saturday morning. Here's my routine:
AM Routine
1) Wash face with 2 pumps of Dan's cleanser for 10 seconds
2) Apply 1/2 pump of Dan's BP
3) Apply 2 pumps of Dan's moisturizer with 5 drops of jojoba oil
4) Take 1 One-a-Day Women's Multivitamin plus Healthy Skin Support
5) Take BC (Micronor)

PM Routine
1) If I wear makeup, apply 20 drops of jojoba oil to remove it

2) Wash face with 2 pumps of Dan's cleanser for 10 seconds
3) Apply 1/2 pump of Dan's BP
4) Apply 2 pumps of Dan's moisturizer with 5 drops of jojoba oil

And that's it! Here's to sticking with it!

OMGoodness, what a difference a week makes! I'll let the pics show it:
Week 2--Front

Week 2--Left

Week 2--Right


I know that I must remember that this is the honeymoon phase, and it is going to get worse, but right now, it's not looking too bad. Skin has gotten softer (something I experienced the first time around) and no flaking yet. Time to bump up the BP.

I'm on the Week 2 routine.
AM Routine
1) Wash face with 1 1/2 pumps of Dan's cleanser for 10 seconds
2) Apply 1 pump of Dan's BP
3) Apply 2 pumps of Dan's moisturizer with 5 drops of jojoba oil
4) Take 1 One-a-Day Women's Multivitamin plus Healthy Skin Support
5) Take BC (Micronor)

PM Routine
1) If I wear makeup, apply 20 drops of jojoba oil to remove it
2) Wash face with 1 1/2 pumps of Dan's cleanser for 10 seconds
3) Apply 1 pump of Dan's BP
4) Apply 2 pumps of Dan's moisturizer with 5 drops of jojoba oil

Now into full swing with Week 2!

Awesome improvement! This is my first time on DKR and I'm only a week in, so the phrase "honeymoon phase" scares me a bit. Haha. At least with all the info on the boards, I know to be prepared for when things do start to get worse.

Have you been on BC for a while? I know hormonal birth control is what kept my skin from being awful throughout most of my teens (I wish I would have known that then and been more thankful! Haha.) If it's new, you may expect to see an improvement in your skin just from that in a couple of months. I sincerely wish I was able to take it still, but my doctor won't prescribe it due to the stroke risk with my migraines.

Can't wait to see week 2!

I'm in the middle of my third month on BC, but MIcronor is a mini-pill, so it's not known for helping get rid of acne. Thanks for the encouraging words, and good luck to you!

Checking in for my Week 2 recap.

First of all, thank you so much, jaynect and ClearSkiesAhead for your words of encouragement; I greatly appreciate it!

Secondly, things seem to be coming along. I'm noticing improvement, though my jawline is still giving me issues. But the front of my face doesn't look too bad. What you guys aren't seeing, though, are the blackheads. They seem to be the first to come in and the last to go!

So, here are the pics:
Week 3 Front

Week 3--Right

Week 3--Left


Here's my regimen for Week 3:
AM Routine
1) Wash face with 1 1/2 pumps of Dan's cleanser for 10 seconds
2) Apply 1 1/2 pumps of Dan's BP
3) Apply 2 pumps of Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops of jojoba oil
4) Take 1 One-a-Day Women's Multivitamin plus Healthy Skin Support
5) Take BC (Micronor)

PM Routine
1) If I wear makeup, apply 20 drops of jojoba oil to remove it
2) Wash face with 1 1/2 pumps of Dan's cleanser for 10 seconds
3) Apply 1 1/2 pumps of Dan's BP
4) Apply 2 pumps of Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops of jojoba oil

And that's it! I hope each of you has a very merry Christmas!

As a correction to my above post, most of the red that's seen in the photos is actually red marks from acne that's already gone. In actuality, I only had one bump on the jawline on my right side, which is pretty awesome!

I'm finally doing my recap for Week 3 on the DKR. Once again, seeing more and more improvement. Fewer bumps and more healing. Most of the marks showing up in the photos are fading red marks, so it looks worse than what it actually is. I'm quite pleased with the progress.
Week 4 Front

Week 4 Right

Week 4 Left

So see what I'm doing for this week in my signature, and I will continue this unless something major happens and I have to back off the BP a bit.

It looks like the honeymoon period is over. It may be because it's that time of the month, but I've had more pustules this week. Add to that flaky skin from the 2 pumps of BP and my skin doesn't look too happy. Posted Image
Week 5--Front

Week 5--Right

Week 5--Left


So I'm going to two small pumps of BP this week to see if that helps with the flakiness. Everything else is staying the same.

Does the Micronor clear your acne or make it worse??
