I will try to do that this weekend. Those are always the harder pics to post up because they are never really nice to look at.

Thats just brilliant.  So happy for you! :)


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.

I wouldn't say perfect. I don't think my ipod camera picks up my slight scarring. I also still get a spot or two when it is that time of the month for the girls.

 

No foundation, just some eyebrows and and mascara and under eye concealer in this picture.

 

And yes, I do use both AHA and Jojoba. Those are some good stuff! :)

Excuse the duck face pic...i find it weird to just smile and take pictures of myself.

 

I happen to like ducks ;) Holy cow! Like Brandy (but much later, obviously), I only just saw your before pics. Congrats to you, really good to see the amazing transformation!

Thank you! :)

 

I was at one point very iffy about it too. But I thought what the heck...I tried everything else. Why not try this right?

Your results are amazing. What I notice in before and after pics is the pain you can see in the persons eye's in the before pics is no longer present in the after pics. It shows how psychologically damaging acne can be. You look so much happier and your skin is just glowing.

Thanks! :) So true! As physically painful as those cysts were, the emotional side of it was painful as well. Nobody wants to go out with a face like mine. It made me too self conscious and I didn't like having to explain to people I met about why my face was that way. 

 

So I really ventured out on trying many different things to get my acne controlled. I am so much happier and I hope this kind of pushes people in some way to do the same and not give up, whether be it the regimen or something else which helps them.
