Hey guys, I finally got my package in the mail this afternoon and was wondering when should I start. Should I start tonight and use the BP also, or should I start tomorrow morning so it can be a full day where I could use it both morning and night?

 

What did you guys do?

Please make sure you follow the instructions exactly.   DO NOT start applying BP twice per day from day 1.  You need to start slowly and build up or you will bend up chemically burning your skin and setting yourself back a few weeks.

 

Start the first week by apply half a pump (or around 1-2 pea size squirts) of Bp to your face ONCE per day and in the second week start building up your dose.

 

Have a look at the link below and familiarise yourself with it before starting.  Good luck! :)  http://www.acne.org/regimen.html


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.
