Hi, I've been on Dan's regimen for about a month and a half now and while I'm seeing results, they're not as good as they could be and I'm thinking it's because of the products I'm using.

So far I've been using Dove Beauty Bar for sensitive skin, Equate repairing lotion, and Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Control Moisturizer. I think I'll see some better results if I switch over to the Cetaphil Normal to Oily Cleanser and the Neutrogena On The Spot as my BP. Anyone that's tried these see good results?

Also, if anyone has any tips for that irritating hyperpigmentation that's left over from acne I'd love to hear it, because I have a lot more of that than actual acne at the moment, haha.

Neutrogena On The Spot is cream based I think, forgive me if I'm wrong, but cream based BP is insuperiour to a gel based for a lot of reasons, definatly try look for a gel based product.
Also I have not used cetephil but I have heard good stuff about it, only problem is their products contain sodium laureth sulfate I think, last time I checked they did haha, which is very over drying for me and for pretty much most people.
I can't advise on Equate repairing lotion as I've never heard of it, maybe someone else has on here?

AHA works very well for hyperpigmentation, the best thing to get rid of this if to maintain your skin keeping it clear, I find using the sunbeds very occasinally and not too much gives me a slight tan helping to even my skin tone out, hiding some of the red marks from it. BHA is suppose to work well but I wouldn't reccomend it from personal experience.
Hope I helped!

New Regimen!

Morning: 2 pumps Dan's cleanser in the shower, and "Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Hydrating Care" to moisturize, works to get me through the day without dry skin, but doesn't show, it's like there's nothing on my face, it's matt and doesn't shine.

///

Night: 2/3 pumps Dan's cleaner in the shower, using the cleanser to shave with a 2 blade generic razor, end segment finger's worth of Dan's BP, 2 pumps Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops generic, organic jojoba oil.

Sometimes just Dan's AHA+, or the usual application of Dan's BP with AHA+ on top if I'm feeling hardcore.

///

1 generic multivitamin, 30mg Zinc if the multivitamin doesn't contain it, 1/2 odorless garlic capsules, 2/3 EyeQ capsules (omega 3, 6, evening primrose oil,)

Have been on lots of different prescriptions, most successful was oxytetracycline.

 

New regimen!

Dove summer glow morning

AHA+ (acne.org) night!

Awaiting 20% salicylic acid gel in post for chin and nose.

Acne isn't returning after almost 2 years on the regimen

Looking for treatments for oily skin however, I have that really bad

I currently use the Cetaphil Normal to Oily cleanser and it has been working for me in Dan's Regimen. Although I do plan to switch to the Gentle Cleanser after this runs out because most users are saying it is less drying to the skin.

 

Regarding hyperpigmentation, I use a 10% glycolic acid gel with my moisturizer at night. It helps lighten my red marks much faster and makes my skin less flakey.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

I started the Regimen about six weeks ago. I have not yet used any of Dan's products. I use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (not the Daily Facial Cleanser) and Neutrogena On-the-Spot. My skin is normal to dry, not at all oily. So far, my skin is the clearest it's been in many, many years! I love Cetaphil, and OnTheSpot seems to be working really well thus far!!

 

Hope this helps

I actually started the regimen about 3 months ago using Cerave foaming facial cleanser and Neutrogena on the spot, and had AMAZING results. I moisturize with the plain old Cerave moisturizing lotion (big bottle with a pump). I saw it got gradually better over a couple of months, then suddenly perfect after about 3 months. I was SO pleased I just bought the acne.org BP. The neutrogena is expensive for the size and the acne.org BP is a GREAT deal. I don't plan on stopping anytime soon so I figured go big or go home.


Skin type: Oily, sensitive, acne-prone

Skin color: fair

Acne type: adult, hormonal, cystic

 

Morning Routine:

Cerave foaming facial cleanser for normal to oily skin

acne.org 2.5% BP treatment

Cerave moisturizing lotion (big bottle with pump)

 

Evening Routine:

 

Cerave foaming facial cleanser for normal to oily skin

acne.org 2.5% BP treatment

Cerave moisturizing lotion (big bottle with pump)

 

Supplements: 

Fish oil 3X

 

Diet:

green juices/smoothies for breakfast everyday

Dairy free and sugar free

 

I don't have to wear make-up anymore.
