Week 6 Help!

4 posts in this topic

I'm on my 6th week of the regimen and my skin is still bright red and peeling and flaky.

When will this go away? What can I do to help it?

At week six you can start to incorporate AHA+ into your regimen. That should help with the dryness/flakiness. As for the red face, I'm afraid that will just take time. Good luck!


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.

I'm also at week 6. I started applying the jojoba oil before applying the BP. I also reduced the amount to 2pumps only at night. It seems to be helping with the flaking, but I'm still pretty red...especially when I take hot showers( I can't help it). If you go with the AHA+ I suggest starting with a small amount, for some reason it burned my face and left it superrrr red, so be careful. Good luck!
