Currently i am using a product called Benzac Ac which consists of a general wash and a cream which both have varying amounts of benzol peroxide in each. (the wash 50g/g and the cream 10g/g). I was wondering if switching over to the regimen which focuses around benzol peroxide which i am already using will make much of a difference to my skin.

The active ingredient in your regimen is the same as The Regimen being benzol peroxide but its effect is vastly different.  The Regimen follows the theory of treating your skin incredibly gently and moisturise moisturise moisturise while using a lot of low percentage (2.5%) BP.   You will find the results to be different to what you are achieving currently.


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.

If you want to follow the regimen, you can continue to use the benzac Bp gel, but switch your cleanser to something more gentle that has no active ingredient and also incorporate a moisturizer.
