This may be a stupid question, but before I got on the regimen I did a lot of research on BP. And I stumbled upon a page that suggested BP for teens and younger adults, and that older adults especially with dry skin should stay away.

I hit my 1 month mark on the regimen and I am so far happy with the results. My mom, age 41 dry to normal skin, also still dealing with acne... I want to recommend the regimen to her, but I wanted to know if anyone in her age range and skin type use the regimen with no problems?

Thanks!

Hey Jan, thats me. I'm 40 and suffered from severely dry and acne prone skin since I was 15. The regimen worked perfectly for me (after the initial 5 weeks of hell), and my skin is now perfectly hydrated even though I use BP once a day. I put it down to using AHA+. That stuff made a huge difference to my naturally dry skin.

My best bit of advice to give your mum is to use cetaphil moisturiser in the intial month while her skin adjusts to BP. Then after that I would highly recommend switching to Acne.org moisturiser and AHA+.

Any more questions I'm happy to help!

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.
