Hello, my name is Ashley! I have had acne since I was a young teenager and I am now 25 years old. I would say it's moderate (anywhere from 5-20 zits at a time) but it is just so annoying and I also have a lot of hyperpigmentation that just makes my skin look worse than it really is and I've never been able to get rid of it. I came across this site and thought I would give the regimen a try!
I am using Dan's stuff (the cleanser, the treatment, and the moisturizer). I've already applied today and so far so good. My face felt a little stiff after applying the cleanser and this is only day 1 so I can only imagine the dryness that will follow.
I also am training for a half marathon in October so I am out in the sun everyday, so I'm not quite sure what to do about my face being exposed to the sun after using the benzoyl peroxide. I have some Devita solar protective moisturizer spf 30 that is non comedogenic so I'm hoping it's okay to use that, but I'll probably just sweat it off within the first 5 minutes because it's so hot here.
I'm just nervous about the redness and the flakiness that I have heard and read about. Just hope this will work for me since nothing else has.
Has anybody started off slower than recommended like during the 2nd week not moved up to day/night everyday during that week? Did it help with irritation at all? I have sensitive skin and it gets red and irritated very easily.
Anybody else starting today/this week/recently?
Here are some pictures (most of the red marks are hyperpigmentation, which hopefully I can get to go away eventually?) Anybody have similar acne and had success using Dan's regimen? I have it the worst on my chin/cheeks area, some on my temples. Forehead is usually clear.
