I've finally concluded that using AHA will cause me to break out. I started the regimen on December 10th, 2012, and I've been clear ever since mid-january, so I'm completely happy with the regimen. The only issue is this AHA. I was just wondering if anybody else gets good results with AHA, cause from what I've read, AHA seem breaks a lot of people out. Whenever I use it I will notice that within the next few days, 1-3 pimples will appear on my forehead (my main problem area, and spot where I apply AHA) pop up from the spots I apply it to. So tell me people, do you have any tips, and what are your thoughts on AHA?

For myself, AHA is what helps the most.  There may be an ingredient in Dan's that your skin doesn't like.  Try a different AHA.  I use a 12% gel that works really well.  

No regimen is one-size-fits-all. You are unique and so is your skin.



Black soap - Lumiplexion Salicylic Acid ~ Lumiplexion  SPF 30 ~ Lumiplexion moisturizer 


Black soap  ~ Lumiplexion Glycolic Acid 12% (3-4x week) ~ Lumiplexion Hydroquinone 1-2x week


Lumiplexion enzyme mask / sulfur mask /  moisturizing mask 1-2 week as needed

How often do you all apply the AHA?
