I'm not usually the one to be asking questions, being on the regimen for 4-5 months now, but this morning I applied BP, then AHA mixed with a bit of jojoba oil, just to see what it would be like, (I have the day off, as most of you know, that means slaver as much onto your face as you want!) And my face for some reason stings a lot, it's gone a tanned colour, it's red, sore, it hurts basically, I'm accustomed to BP and AHA now, and this shouldn't happen.
This is the only time I have added jojoba to AHA, and the first time i've used jojoba oil in a while, has anyone else experienced this?
I'm going to have to put up with the pain until the end of the day, I still want the BP to do it's work as I only use it every once and a while.
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.
Dove summer glow morning
AHA+ (acne.org) night!
Awaiting 20% salicylic acid gel in post for chin and nose.

However if it really hurts, you definitely wash it off. You don't want your skin to be irritated too much.

After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that
I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.
