Hello my name is Bea Aby and today is my 1st day starting the regimen :)
I was inspired by a pen pal i met on the org. her user name is "Thereisalwayshope" Love her !!!!
Im 22 yrs old female btw . and im currently with 10 actives with many blemishes and scars left over from previous acne.
On a day to day basis i will write down my experience with the regimen to either help people get on it or discourage them from it he-he! Im hopeful that it will do wonders. Im EXCITED !!!!!

Good luck! Remember to follow it strictly for best results. Watch Dan's videos a few times through before you start.

And print off this checklist.

Also, keep in mind that this is not a cure but a way to clear up and manage your acne. It works as long as you continue using it.

hey, i followed DKR to the tee for about 5 months before getting completely cleared, but it definitely works. Don't get discouraged as things may tend to get a bit worst in the initial stages. Seems like the majority of DKR users went through that phase. Be patient, positive, and try not to convince your mind that its gonna be a miracle cure. But if you stay consistent and always remember to moisturize, a mistake i was making in the beginning stages, you will in time definitely have your acne under control. Good luck.

Be blessed !

Well its just a matter of determination and the regimen does sound a bit scary but im hoping that in the end its all worth the side effects. What regimen are you currently on ?

DAY 5 : I am experiencing some redness, flakiness and stinging sensation ouch ! I have developed some small bumps on my chin im not sure if this is a part of the purging process of the regimen but my face looks awful. Thats because my skin is red which is highlighting my blemishes even more darker.My skin is flaking a little so but the stinging is not severe just when i apply the BP. It hurts and burns a bit. Im hoping these side effects subside soon enough. I have about 10 active lesions with small bumps on my chin. Still trying to build up the courage to take a picture :( Im working on it though .

Hang in there. The first few weeks are typically the hardest. Be very generous with the moisturizer and extra jojoba oil drops if you have any. Here's the typical progress timeline. http://www.acne.org/whattoexpect.html

good luck. all i can say is that it definitely works for clearing your acne if followed exactly as dan prescribes. however, it can be rough. words of wisdom for your first 6 months or so: the more moisturizer the better. use jojoba oil if you need to.

Absolutely :) I find myself moisturizing to calm the itchiness !!! Thanks for your kind words my friend.

DAY 6 : So my skin is really dry at the moment in some parts of my face mainly where i have acne and the itchiness has calmed down. Maybe moisturizing has contributed to the decrease in discomfort. Well im currently using 1/2 of a pump of the BP and i have about 9 active lesions. Gross. There is some mild redness. No make-up to conceal because it wouldn't look nice right about now. haha . Oh well have to be brave .
PS. Still very excited and im sure this will calm and control my acne :D
Be blessed people.
