Aha?

7 posts in this topic

Just wondering how people got on with Dan's AHA. Would this help with congested/clogged pores/blackheads etc?


Limited dairy/gluten - everything in moderation - lots of healthy fats, and veggies. Too much fruit breaks me out unfortunately.

I loved AHA because it helped with dryness and some marks but for clogged pores, i would look more into BHA as it can cut through oil (AHA does not)


It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end. Here's to finding my end.

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Thanks Leelowe, thing is I already use a salicylic acid face wash and it doesn't seem to be doing the trick anymore :/ thinking that an AHA will help step it up a gear and exfoliate stuff away?

AHA is great for reducing dark spots left by the aftermath of pimples.

didn't help much with my blackheads

AHA helped with my blackheads and under-skin bumps. Perhaps as others have suggested above BHA's may work better for this purpose but for me personally, AHA worked really well to get my skin smooth, blackhead and bump free (along with BP that is).

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

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.

I have used a BHA before from Paula's choice but it did not agree with my skin.

For the past 9 months I have used 2 different salicylic acid cleansers with good results...just the past few months things seem to be declining.

I am going to try the Priori AHA line and see how I get on with that, but I am still using BP, keep thinking its doing more harm than good sometimes though. Obviously a retinoid would probably be advantageous but I am petrified of the IB so going to stick with OTC AHA's atm.
