Your skin at the moment is really clear and looks healthy. I personally wouldn't advise you to use the acne.org regimen and that's from personal experience. It's not that it didn't work for me, but when you have very mild acne, is adding BP to your face worth the implications? You're going to have really dry and flaky skin for the first two weeks and I kid you not, it's not an exaggeration how flaky it actually gets. Also if you were to come off the regimen, your skin could end up looking worse than it does now.
Those that say 'go for it' are usually the ones that have fully adapted to it and are dependent on the regimen in order to maintain clear skin - which is of course not their fault, their form of acne requires antibacterial treatment. Yours seems to be very tame and by treating your skin kindly, I think you could clear those blemishes up quickly and safely.
Also, you're 14. Don't go damaging your skin at this point by using BP, let your skin grow and repair itself. A lot of people here have adult acne that is persistent, try work out your skin type and be gentle to it for now. Trust me
Actually I agree a lot with this statement. Your acne is mild and you are still young. Trying to address your minor acne with a less harsh method IS a reasonable consideration.
i started with the regimen before 4 days my skin got extremly dry and red during the day i apply moisturizer few times , is it normal and will it always be that red ? t
Yes, Pepe10, unfortunately this is a normal reaction when first starting the regimen, and it usually last anywhere from 3 -8 weeks or so. Just make sure you arent using too much BP in the early weeks. Start with a small application (pea size) once a day for a few days, then the same amount twice a day, and then slowly build up your BP application until you are using the full recommended amount.
But there is no getting around the redness and dry/itchiness until your skin adjusts to the BP. But it DOES get better. Patience and persistence. Good luck my friend!
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.
