hi. my name is irene, i am 22 y/o from the philippines and , i've been suffering from acne since gradeschool, already tried everything under the sun. I got this information from youtube that acne.org really works. But they aren't shipping to the philippines so i tried these alternatives:

 

1. Cetaphil gentle cleanser (mercury drug)

2. BP Benzac AC 2.5% (bought @sulit.com)

3. Cetaphil moisturizing cream (mercury drug)

 

i am on my second day and luckily there were no break outs, but  what i can notice is, my face turned sooooo OILY!!! shining shimmering splendid. hmp! is it because of the moisturizer and or because of our HOT climate? should i discontinue the moisturizer? 

 

and because i had so many acne on the past years, i also got lots of scars and hyper pigmentation, but again there is no available jojoba oil and AHA in the philippines,,

 

somebody please HELP ME? :(

One topic of the same nature is enough thanks.   Thread closed.


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.
