Acne that manifests in a severe cystic nodular form is a symptom of a psychological problem. Due to the persons chaotic shifts in mood their hormones experience exteme "ups and downs" leading to overproduction of sebum which causes severe acne. Anyone experiencing severe acne should have themselves committed into a mental hospital for treatment and evaluation  to get help for their mental disorder.

doubt.gif So what happened to you saying acne is 100% caused by diet??  I've stumbled across a few of your threads and posts now and they just keep getting more ridiculous...


Acne is not a mental illness. Yes, things like stress can impact acne severity and some people have certain diet sensitivities that exasperate acne also. But acne is not a mental illness, nor is it 100% caused by diet. If anything, acne leads to mental illness, in some cases, due to the number of ways acne can effect a person's emotional/metal health.

Um...............Committed to a mental hospital? Please tell me you're joking.

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.
