DAY 7 Finally a week into the regimen and let me just say its been difficult last night i couldn't sleep because my face was in pain due to the bp. I took an Ibuprofen and eventually i was able to fall asleep. My skin is still very dry, flaking, the redness appears to be subsiding. Hooray :D
Tonight i will increase my BP dosage from 1/2 to 1 1/2 of a pump. I have gotten new pimples during the regimen but luckily they aren't cysts. I hate those 'effers. But it seems that the BP dries them out uber quick and there gone within 2 days. Thats a relief. So cheers * to anyone that is sticking to a regimen to help control their acne and to all of you on the .org be blessed :) :) :)

PS. Im being so optimistic in regards to DKR, i know this will control it, i am just a few steps away from glory ! yay !!

That's great! I'm sure it will control it as well. :)

& wow, the BP hurt your face that much? Maybe I should start applying BP twice a day. I haven't been experiencing flaking, redness, or pain. It just stings a little when I put it on. I thought I'd go slower with it bc I'm using 5% BP, maybe I shouldn't.

Yes mam' the BP began hurting maybe like on the 4rd day on the regimen because my skin is sensitive and its getting adjusted to it :) but its started to decrease a little :)
Well you should prolly try using the Bp twice a day and then you'll begin to see your skin flake . Dan recommends 2.5 because according to his studies it works just as well as the 10% and 5 % . Honestly with this regimen i've began to see little result so thats good :)



DAY 8 :
Alright so now im experiencing very dry skin, my skin is flaking like a snake lol. Im just hoping their is fresh skin underneath all that flake of snow :). I have gotten 2 new pimples luckily, they are not cysts. 1 on my temple and the other on my jawline. So currently i have about 10 actives. Last night i increased my dose to 1 1/2 pump of a BP i guess you can say its finger length. At night my jawline hurts im not sure why i dont really have acne their but i feel it aching. Must be the BP. I cant stress enough to moisturize while being on this regimen. I have extreme oily skin but i still have to moisturize because the BP is drying the hell out of it he-he . Well im hoping to see nothing but clear skies from now on.
Stay blessed people !

I would rather use 2.5 BP, but I can't get my hands on any atm.

Glad to hear things are going well. :)

DAY 9 :

Ah ! So i have a new cyst darn it :( it is on my left cheek on my cheekbone and its not painful its just red and i could feel it under my skin . My skin is extremely itchy ayayay and its flaking BOOoo. I have a couple active lesions maybe like 4 and 5 that are dry pimples. I really want these awful side effects to subside already ! Its uncomfortable ! Other than that i do see minor improvements on my skin. With the BP my lesions do dry quickly but when one dies out a new one comes in its place. Lame . I have a dry pimple on my jawline and a couple on my cheekbones on both cheeks with some PIH. Some minor scars on my temples and my forehead is clear. My problem has recently been mostly located on my cheeks. Soon though all of my problems will be gone . Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
Staying optimistic and blessed. This all goes to anyone who reads this as well. *Cheers.

Aloha, well its and up and down battle however, i still plan on sticking to it. Hows it going with your regimen ?


DAY 11 :
Wow, the itchiness has not subsided much, i get extremely itchy after applying the bp and it last to about 2 to 3 hours then it subsides same thing applies during the PM. Its really difficult to bare with but i am not giving up. I've seen a slight improvement but nothing drastic. I still breakout but not as often. About 1 pimple everyday. I currently have about 5 active pimples and 5 dried out ones. I have a painful cyst on my right jawline near my ear and OUCH ! Posted Image
Hopefully it dies out soon.
My skin is also very dry, no matter how much moisturizer and jojoba oil drops i add its still dry as hell. Must be the increase in BP. I went from 1/2 pump to 1 1/2 a pump. It is still too soon to give up and i have faith that these awful side effects will soon diminish. The redness has disappeared. What a relief. Posted Image
I've noticed that i was not being gentle enough with my skin when cleansing and applying the treatment because of my anxiety but starting tonight i will be EXTREMELY GENTLE ! That is the key to this regimen.
Good luck everyone and be blessed !

Hang in there you'll be clear before you know it! I've been on the reigmen myself for about a month now and I am very pleased with the results. Just follow the directions and you should be fine. God bless you

DAY 12 :

So today i woke up to a pimple right under my lip located on my chin. Its not that big but its not small. Maybe like a dime size ZIT ! I already did my morning regimen and like i've said in my previous post my skin is always itchy after the regimen for like 2-3 hours then it fades away. I dislike that so much. I moisturize and it still itches. I added like 6 drops of jojoba oil and im still currently itchy ! Anyways, R/T cheek has about 4 actives and a cyst on my jawline, it no longer hurts like yesterday. I dont feel it pulsating !!! L/T cheek has 6 actives and 1 active on my temple. So momentarily i have 11 active lesions. Almost there to week 2.
Oh and btw i am refraining from using make up while being on the regimen to help clear my face more efficiently. The less product on your face the better. And forehead still clear. Face is still flaking but not as much as yesterday the redness only last 30 minutes after applying BP then it subsides the only difficulty now w/the regimen is the intense itchiness . Although, my skin is still very dry. I touch my face and the texture is rough, its not soft. I am hoping that this will soon go away.

It's going alright. It's defintely making my skin better, but I'm not liking the flakiness.

Sounds like things are going well with you. Stay positive. :)

DAY 14 :

ALRIGHT!!! 2 weeks into DKR !!!!Hooray ! Because i have made it this far and the syptoms have began to subside which is great. I still experience some itchiness but not to drastic. I guess you can say its tolerable. My BP dose is 1 1/2 pump. Im debating whether or not i should increase. Ive noticed some improvements. That pimple underneath my lip is practically dead now. Awesome.That cyst though on my right jawline is still their lingering. It still hurts when i touch it.
Overall my skin is beginning to adjust to the bp now. I will have to increase the amount but not yet. i dont want to aggravate my skin. So overall good improvements so far. i still have many scars but they will fade in time. YAY !

DAY 15 :

Nothing new to report . Symptoms are subsiding. I actually did pick at my face this morning Booo hopefully my picking doesn't come with consequences.
R/T Cheek i have 2 pimples with many blemishes and a few ice pick scars. L/T cheek i have about 1 lingering cyst. Its been there for a week now. With a couple of small pimples like 4. With many blemishes and scars as well. And i have small bumps on my chin. I Hope those go away soon. They are non inflamed but sometimes thats how my pimples start and then they become inflamed. Crossing my fingers * Forehead is clear and temples are clear with some scars.
Overall im seeing some good results with only being in 2 weeks of the regimen !!!

It's going alright. It's defintely making my skin better, but I'm not liking the flakiness.

Looks like things are clearing up for us two. How awesome is that Posted Image Posted Image

Yea I just picked up on this thread as well.. how's it coming? I've been researching the regimen for a while now and just decided to start about 3 days ago. Skin feels horribly tight and almost burned from the bp.. even after moisturizing :( oh well.. no pain no gain!
I take these supplements daily to keep my skin at an acceptable level:

--B5 (Pantothenic Acid)-8,000mg

--B-Complex-1,000mg

--L-Carnitine-1,000mg

Thank you so much it means a lot. I havent been able to log in because i've been studying for my classes. Im almost into week 3 im on DAY 19.

Hello there, and let me tell you the first couple of weeks are crazy. I wouldn't say Hell but for some people it is. I remember one day my face was aching because of the BP like a burning sensation, i felt like quitting because it was awful but i took Ibuprofen and it went away. Burning, itching and pain is expected but it will fade as long as you dont increase the BP. Dont start to fast. Take it slow. Im almost into week 3 and im still battling with these freaking symptoms but the results are great so far. So im sticking to the regimen Posted Image


DAY 19 :

I haven't been able to update my log due to my studies but here i am today reporting my skin condition for people who are interested. My temples are flaking like snow. Seems like the only part flaking at the moment. Forehead is clear from acne no marks, well never had acne there lol so maybe thats why its still clear Posted Image
My right cheek was always the worst but now its the one showing more results. I have about maybe 3 tiny pimples and many red marks that are fading away. They are getting lighter as the days pass by. My left cheek which was always the one doing good is now doing worse. Well not severe , severe. I been breaking out on the regimen still and i am aware that i will continue to breakout until maybe month 3 but the breakouts are not drastic. I have a lingering cyst on my cheekbone on my left side its been there almost two weeks now. It is SO annoying just die already. With maybe 7 other pimples but not big ones. Regular size ones and many red marks spread out on my cheek. My chin has some small clog pores but not noticeable unless your up in close inspecting my chin Posted Image haha. Overall good improvements. Still not there but the regimen kills these suckers faster than Salicylic acid.
Be Blessed people Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
