Very good read! Nice job on this. I bet a lot of regimen users and those who are planning to go on the regimen will learn a lot.
Thanks so much! That's what it's there for.
How kind of you to write out all that helpful information! Thank you!
Aren't we not supposed to use regular soaps on the regimen? I thought it messed up the PH of the skin or something.
Why did you stop the regimen if it was working for you? (sorry if I missed that somewhere, you may have mentioned it in another post but I forgot)
Thanks again! <3
No problem! Let's see... I think natural soaps and soaps with organic ingredients shouldn't be a problem. I was just stating that if you lather up the soap really well and wash gently, your face will be just as clean as it would with liquid soap. More people prefer liquid soap because a.) it feels better and b.) because bar soap leaves a rough residue on the skin.
I stopped for several reasons! One obvious reason is that the Cons outweighed the Pros tremendously. Another is because the regimen is not a cure. I want to get RID of my acne, not maintain it. I tried the regimen just as I has tried numerous other things from my dermatologist, I am extremely open minded. A lot of what they gave me worked, but I was always sensitive to the side effects, including some that I suffer to this very day, such as permanently chapped and dry lips, and an endless supply of thin hair falling out of my scalp when I bathe. Other than the BP burning and peeling side effects on the skin, Dan's Regimen seemed much more risk-free. Plus the logic of it made a lot of sense.
I don't recommend The Regimen though, but I can't stop people from doing it, so I may as well help them and let them decide for themselves .
