I'm 20 years old. I had the first pimple on my face when i was about 12 or 13. But it was just a couple of them here and there. When i turned 18, my acne all of the sudden came horribly. It was everywhere. I saw a lot of different doctors and tried some very expensive prescriptions and skin care products but none of them seem to work. Then I used the regimen. First week it was like everybody else, my skin was dry and flaky(btw i have super oily skin).I was kinda happy my skin wasn't that oily anymore. but it kept being like that for almost 2 months. my skin was still flaky for 2 months n my acne didn't go away AT ALL. Then my mom saw my skin and got scared and made me stop using the regimen. I wonder what could possibly go wrong so it didn't work for me??? my acne is still horribly now. Any other suggestions besides the regimen???help please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Did you Dan's products? If not, what were you using?

 

Perhaps it was the alternative products. It could also be the steps in doing the regimen that you didn't follow them precisely. I've noticed that the how and the what are very important when doing the regimen.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + 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 Lotion/Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25

                    NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20

                              The Balm Sexy Mama Translucent Power

                              Smashbox Photoset Pressed Power in Light
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff

                      Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fuide in Cashew

- Tinted Moisturizer: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Nude
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)

- Eyecream: Clinique All About Eyes
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
