In Topic: Aha?

04 March 2013 - 06:46 AM

So I've been on the Regimen for a little over a month now and I have to admit I'm getting really impatient. I follow the Regimen pretty well and it started off well for the past two weeks I break out every day, my skin has gotten so dry I can't even feel it, and it just looks dead. My skin has gotten used to the BP now although my eyes still tear up from the fumes. I use Cerave moisturizer since Dan's didn't work for my skin. The Cleanser had worked so well for me but over the past 2 weeks, it dries up my skin much more than the BP! That's actually what makes my skin flake the most. I haven't changed anything in the past 2 weeks so I'm really confused as to why I'm suddenly breaking out but it's driving me crazy.

 

So I thought, should I give AHA a try? Some people have said they think that's what really cleared them up, but others have said that it burns like hell and made their skin a million times worse. Really really really don't want to make my skin any worse.

 

 

>>Hey I am 4 weeks into the regimen and I uped the dosage to full finger length of bp about a week ago. flaking was really bad as well but I think it slowly adjusted because the flaking and dryness has improved 70% in the last few days. I did use aha a few times this week to test it out (im going to officailly use it everynight starting wednesday) and it has helped flaking greatly! It does sting but if you do half moisterizer and half aha it isnt bad at all! Also I have gotten breakouts literally every week since starting and pretty much have zero improvement so far so I totally understand the being impatient thing, but alot of people around here said the first month was bad and it slowly got better and by month 3-4 they were really glad they stayed with it! So im going to give it at least 3-4 months! Good luck to you 

 

Please don't attempt to use the AHA until after 4 weeks on the regimen. It will just suck the life out of your skin and make it dry and flakey.

 

Wait until skin has gotten used to the BP and make sure not to skimp on moisturizer, if you feel dry later on in the day you can always add more.

 

It is now my 7th week on the regimen and it has worked really well for me. I know you are getting anxious for it to kick in but I still got new zits even on my 4th week....it really takes time. Give it a couple more weeks.

 

Good luck!

 

 

 

I used the aha once or twice on that 4th week but I didnt start consistantly using the aha until 1 month in. And Surprisingly it had no adverse side effects at all! I am currently on week 8 of the regimen myself so we are kinda on the same timeline! Glad to hear that its worked for you, everyones skin is really different and the regimen is starting to show a little progress for me as well.

Hello fellow acne.org friends! I wanted to get some thoughts of your experiences with Dan's Aha+ I've been using it for about five days and was just wondering what kind of results I can expect.
Do you like the Aha+?
How long have you been using it?
What tips can you recommend about this product?
Or anything else you'd like to add!

 

I'm kind of obsessed with the AHA.

 

I use it every night time. Half AHA and Half moisturizer with a few drops of jojoba oil. My skin feels so refreshed in the morning and it has lightened my red marks so much faster. 

 

 

how much faster would you say it helps fade your marks?

I hope my skin gets better by spring as well! Thx! This is my 5th week on it and things seem to be improving now, still far from good skin but progress is very exciting! I am not sure about the aging part, however a lot of people agree with you and say it does, and others say it doesnt so not sure who to believe lol. There are also studies that prove both sides. however i dont plan on being on it forever, just til i clear up and then hopefully I can weed myself slowly off bp and just use aha. 

And thats great that you found something that wroks for you! I tried OTC stuff and none of it worked for me sadly, and thats why im trying the regimen now. I really think by the 3 month mark ill be complete clear and happy with my skin! If the OTC stuff stops working id recommend trying the regimen! 

 

Good Luck in your battle, acne is a tough thing to have but remember your a beautiful person inside and out regardless! God bless!
