Hey guys! I am 17, with mild-moderate acne on my cheeks and it has always lowered my self-esteem. I have tried mild cleanser along with its toner and anti-blemish cream which are all organic. The good news is that I don't have frequent breakouts, unless when I'm stressed but the bad news is that the acne leave mild scars and I really would want to get rid of them.

They're not really scars (I hope), they are more of dormant acne. I also live in Singapore, where it's mostly hot and humid.

So, should I use the Regimen, and why?

I have already ordered the starting kit so there's no turning back but I just want to make sure it's safe(?)

Here are the pics:

Thanks in advanced!

Of course, give it a shot - the regimen worked for me and has for many people. Just follow the instructions perfectly and you should have great results. I live in Australia so also a hot country so I just made sure i was careful with sun protection.

Good luck and I hope it works just as well for you as it did for me.

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.
