Moved to "store brand regimen supplies" where you may get more responses.  Good luck!


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.

How is the moisturizing lotion as an AM moisturizer? I don't want it to be too heavy that my face looks greasy or oily.

- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)

And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

Ya know I actually just recently switched my SPF over to neutrogena SPF and I just use my regular ol CeraVe cream with it.i actually find the cream to soak into the skin faster and it doesn't save me oily looking. It takes about 5 minutes for the cream to soak in. I started using Dans AHA about a month ago and my skin seems so much more moisturized that the CeraVe AM was taking forever to soak into my skin and I was sweating a lot under it for some reason. It was like my face couldn't breath. Which is odd because I've been using it for well over a year now. If your skin is very dry from the regimen I would give it a shot. But I seems almost to heavy for me now. Bummer because I liked it. Maybe it will be more of a winter product for me. I wouldn't even use it if I didn't need a SPF but I do. I just switched products on Tuesday!

I just got the cerave moisturizing lotion and used it for the first time today as my AM moisturizer. I added an SPF to it and it felt really good on my skin. It didn't come out greasy looking at all. Hopefully this keeps my skin moisturized as I continue using it. :)

I use the CeraVe PM as a day moisturizer for when I wear makeup. I cannot/will not use a chemical sunscreen on my face, it will break me out, irritate my skin and eyes...even if it is comedogenic, sensitive skin, all natural, etc. (I wear a wide brim hat at ALL times during daylight hours). CeraVe PM creates a very smooth, moisturized, non greasy canvas to work with. I find it will tame the random flakey & peely skin and doesn't oxidize my makeup or look oily.
*I do not suggest you use the PM formula as a day moisturizer, unless you are using a separate sunscreen (as this formula does not have added sunscreen), or you plan to wear a hat.

Good! I hope you continue to like it and it helps deal with the BP flakiness!
