4 Month Update & Review!

11 posts in this topic

Well it's been 4 months ago that I started this regimen. It's been a long hard battle but it's been so worth it! I had moderate cystic acne when I started this regimen. I couldn't even open my mouth all the way bc of the acne along my jawline and cheeks. I was constantly in pain and discomfort. Not to mention embarrassed by people starring at me. Has no one ever seen acne before? Jeesh!

So currently I have 2 tiny baby bumps on my chin. Those go away very quickly now. The rest of my face is so smooth and even less oily! I still have lots of hyper pigmentation on my cheeks, but that's going away as well. I still wear makeup and now concealer bc my marks are so easy to cover up. I've always wondered what my skin would look like clear and now thanks to Dan's regimen I know!

My overall review would be a 9 out of 10. The only reason it's not a 10 is bc of the red marks I got afterward. I am so very very very happy with my results. I want to thank everyone who helped me through this process (which felt like forever!) and all those who advised me not to quit. To anyone looking into this for an answer to your acne problems, give this a try!

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.
