So i've been using BP for 12 weeks already. and it's my 2nd week of Dan's Regimen and i noticed a big big difference. Omg the products are holy grail. Thank you Dan!!!!!!! I only get like tiny tiny pimples now that are not even obvious unless you look at them closely. I just hope i am on my way to a clear skin. Can't wait to stop breaking out for good. Anyone here experiencing some super tiny pimples? Am i on way to clearing up?

Isn't getting clear the best feeling ever? I'm so happy for you.

 

Don't worry about the tiny pimples, you will probably experience that every once in a while because us girls just have hormones all over the place. Just let the regimen do its job. You're on your way. 


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- 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)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

Those red marks my acne left behind were pretty bad for me too. Eventually they will fade and because you aren't breaking out, you won't get new ones but I did use AHA to help me fade those marks faster. Dan's AHA is really great. Maybe once you are further into the regimen, you can give that a go. It's awesome.

I started using AHA around my 6th or 7th week. I used AHA as a spot treatment and also with my moisturizer. So for my red marks or spots, I spot treated before applying BP. Then let it dry, then applied BP and then moisturizer mixed with AHA.

Oh yes i have to try that soon. Thank you nicmic :) one last question, is there no harm in mixing BP and AHA? No purging again or anything?

I've read that some people purge a bit when adding in AHA but I never had that problem. I guess its a case to case basis but I don't think it would be a big problem, if it is, then just remember to keep going with the regimen because the spots will eventually go away anyway.

Congratulations on your progress. :D


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.
