hi. so ive been using a gentle dove soap to wash with. its on the list of recomended drugstore options. and since i was already using it i decided to keep it. now i think i want to give the cleanser on this site a try. i still fell dry and flakey after my shower.

thats actualy another issue. i might as well look for feedback here now as well. the lotion makes my face red. i look at myself in the mirror and my face looks different from my neck. too much lotion im all red and greasy looking. not enough im flakky. anyone else have this problem? anything i can do that works better?

so theres a question, now back to my original.


if i buy the cleanser will it make my skin worse before it makes it better, like the bp. i have oily skin. will it make my skin look worse for a while. the dove soap is working fine so its not worth the switch if its going to hurt my appearance for a short time. anyone report this happening??

thanks for the feedback

I switched cleansers a few times while on the regimen...and my skin hasn't broke out directly from it. My ultimate favorite cleanser is the Cerave Hydrating cleanser. Good luck! Oh and I love the Cerave moisturizing lotion the best. I can't use Dans either.

I use all of Dan's products although in the early stages of following the regimen I didnt find his moisturiser to be moisturising enough, but whenever I tried other products (such as cetaphil, and cerave) it caused me to start getting lots of underskin bumps again. Although both those moisturisers hydrated my skin far better than Dan's moisturiser, the whole point of following the regimen for me was to become completely acne free so I switched back.

I would say if you're happily using Dove without any problems then stick with it. Dan's moisturiser is fine, but it is a bit drying when you're first getting used to BP.

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 smile.png

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 noticed many have mentioned the suggested products listing from this site...where can I find that?
