Do I've just started the regimen yesterday, and when browsing these forms the first thing everyone seems to say is that it burns, flakes, or makes the skin itch... I'm not getting any of these reactions. I'm starting slow liek Daniel Kern said, now because it's not burning, flaking, or itching, does that mean i'm doing it wrong then?

No, it just means that the BP hasn't taken full effect... Hopefully you'll be the luckier one's that doesn't experience these symptoms but they are to be expected. If they do occur, just ride it out as it will get better over time... Good luck and keep us up to date on your progress... :)

I was the same in the first week, no burning or itching etc. But that made me become cocky and so I upped the dose of BP too quickly and boy did I suffer for that mistake.  Keep going slow, and like NYCQueen has said above, hopefully you will be one of the lucky ones who doesnt suffer :)


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.
