So I've been using AHA lately but I feel like I'm not using it right..? I put it on after BP but it feels like there's just too much stuff on my skin and it feels gross. It burns at first and leaves my skin looking a bit burnt so I don't use much and not very often. Am I using this stuff right?

It sounds like you're using it just fine.  Apply it in the evening because it usually gives you a 'flushed' look for a few hours.  I also find it doesnt absorb so well and can peel off if I rub my skin after I apply it.  But persevere because its wonderful stuff and will take your skin to 'glowing'.  Try and apply it at least 3 times a week.


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 smile.png

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.
