I love the regimen, but I really want to exfoliate every once in a while...I wish I could use the AHA but its the ONLY product Dan sells that my skin really doesnt like. Anybody have any good exfoliating methods while on the DKR? I was thinking maybe a home BHA peel once a week or something (like 8%ish).

Try this:


Works perfectly for me, and I do it regularly, it really helps with getting rid of dry skin

New Regimen!

Morning: 2 pumps Dan's cleanser in the shower, and "Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Hydrating Care" to moisturize, works to get me through the day without dry skin, but doesn't show, it's like there's nothing on my face, it's matt and doesn't shine.


Night: 2/3 pumps Dan's cleaner in the shower, using the cleanser to shave with a 2 blade generic razor, end segment finger's worth of Dan's BP, 2 pumps Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops generic, organic jojoba oil.

Sometimes just Dan's AHA+, or the usual application of Dan's BP with AHA+ on top if I'm feeling hardcore.


1 generic multivitamin, 30mg Zinc if the multivitamin doesn't contain it, 1/2 odorless garlic capsules, 2/3 EyeQ capsules (omega 3, 6, evening primrose oil,)

Have been on lots of different prescriptions, most successful was oxytetracycline.


New regimen!

Dove summer glow morning

AHA+ (acne.org) night!

Awaiting 20% salicylic acid gel in post for chin and nose.

Acne isn't returning after almost 2 years on the regimen

Looking for treatments for oily skin however, I have that really bad

Hey Max ... before the regimen I used a light chemical exfoliating mask by Ren called the glycol lactic peel mask... the mask doesn't need to be "peeled" off your skin, so it doesn't irritate your skin ... you just gently apply and after 10 minutes gently rinse with a warm cloth (no need to rub) I like to just let the warm cloth sit on my face for a few seconds (make sure it isn't hot so it doesn't irritate your skin), rinse the cloth and repeat until the mask is removed, then rinse with cold water and pat dry .. it's a natural mask so it's not as harsh as on the skin which should work great with the regimen... you can get samples at sephora if you'd like to try it out before buying ... it costs around $55. Expensive but worth the radiant complexion ... :)
