Breaking Out

4 posts in this topic

Is it normal that while doing the regimen, I am breaking out? Please help me. I've been doing it for 2 weeks now and huge zits are appearing on my cheeks, forehead and the sides of my nose? Is it normal? Or will it subside? Please somebody help me cry.gif

Yes, it is very normal. I was wondering the same thing when I started but I still had zits coming out on my 4th week even.

But stick to it! I am now in my 7th week and my skin feels and looks so much better. I guess it all depends on the severity of your acne.

Yes, its perfectly normal. I had the worse breakout of my life in week 2, but I stuck with it and was rewarded with clear skin after 3 months. Be patient and vigilant. Good luck!


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.
