Right I'm getting a little concerned, For weeks now, since last november, the regimen has worked for me, but now suddenly, my face is starting to get blocked pores, it's like I can see it going back to it's former self, I thought I had the solution with acne.org, it's been gone so long and the worst timing ever, as I have just met someone new.
Last night I put a lot of BP, AND AHA, and nothing stung, when it usually does, for the past few weeks I have been using BP and mousturizer, before that I used bp and aha. I only apply once a day and for half a year that has worked, I cannot use twice a day or my face turns orange.
Before this I could get away with using bp twice a week and aha in between.

Any help? I really don't know what to do, I have ordered some new supplies but for the UK it takes 10 days

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

Could be due to stress or change in diet?

Acne can wax and wane. Most people see best results by being really strict with The Regimen. Twice a day, everyday, the full recommended amount.

Make sure your products have not expired too. Please read here: http://www.danielker...r.asp?ID=17#153

If your acne is waxing, get more strict with The Regimen. Should clear you right up.

Yeah I second what Brandy is saying. Any time I slack off on The Regimen I will start to notice beginnings of a break out. The answer is always the same. I'm not being as strict as I should be. Once I get back on The Regimen strictly, I clear back up.

Thanks for the replies, I actually got some new acne.org products a while ago now (forgot to keep up on my thread,) and it turns out that was the problem, they where not out of date either, just around 4-5 months old, still, new products seem to make all the difference.
