In a nutshell, I have suffered from cystic acne (on my chin) for all of my adult years. I am currently 38. I have tried many OTC products, ProActive, various prescriptions from dermatologists including antibiotics, birth control pills, accupuncture, the blood type diet and various other dietary modifications and NOTHING has worked! I've basically tried everything but Accutane. The effect on my mood and self esteem has been great. Searching in desperation to find something that would work, I found your web site almost by mistake. I thought, why not try the regimen, I've tried everything else! I felt quite silly, as I was sure something so simple and inexpensive wouldn't work when so many other remedies have failed. Your regimen has been a HUGE blessing in my life. My skin started improving from day 1! I did have flaking and itching during the first few weeks, just like your web site said, but after reading that this is normal, I just kept on going. As you said, this side effect disappeared. I have not had 1 cyst since beginning this regimen 6 months ago. My face is now glowing and clear! I cannot believe it! I am so thankful for all your personal experiences and research that led you to create this web site. I will recommend your regimen to everyone I know who suffers from acne.

I felt that your video was so simple and yet so helpful.
I have never seen a person demonstrate the importance of blending in the acne medication and also the importance of using products which are non-irritating.
I found that Neutrogina's One Less Stress was superior to the Benzol Perixoide 'On the Spot' formula.
My skin is so clear now and your advice has helped me a great deal.

I can't even begin to tell you how much of an impact your Regimen has had on me! I turned 19 in January, and my face hadn't gotten any better. I looked into buying expensive Mario Badescu products, and I was THIS close. I remembered going to Acne.org and how much it all made sense to me. So, I bought the starter kit (which has lasted me till now and will last MUCH longer), and I can't even believe the difference! I wanted to write you after the first week, but I had also been on Proactiv and Murad, so i already knew that things always just got worse. I'm proud to say that it's been three weeks today and my face is totally, perfectly, CLEAR! As a college kid I never realized how much more confidence I could have, and your Regimen helped me realize it! You changed my life Dan! Thanks and God bless!

The Regimen works! While it may not be a cure for severe or aggressive acne, it definitely lessens the effects making the skin appear more clear within days of starting the Regimen.
My daughter was on Accutane two years ago. She was acne free for about 6 months. After that we were back to square one! Very frustrating to have gone through that level of treatment with literally NO long-term results. She began college out of state, so a second bout of Accutane wasn't an option. When she came home during spring break, the acne was worse than I've ever seen it. Very irritated looking skin with large dark red to purple areas with many eruptive spots. (Saturday)
In frustration, I got on-line to seek "home remedies" that would help her get through the spring semester until she came home for the summer and we could pursue other options. This is when I found you! I went out immediately to get the over-the counter products recommended. (Saturday night)
I had a discussion with her, citing much of the information provided in your on-line information. We discussed how to use the Regimen and how to keep irritants away from her face. I even recommended that she change her pillow case every couple days to keep any residue from haircare products off her face while sleeping. She began the Regimen the following day (Sunday).
After two-to-three days (Tuesday), there was a noticeable improvement. By Friday, people who saw her earlier in the week remarked how much improved her skin had become.
Because of the severity of her acne, we must pursue other avenues of treatment. However, I do believe that anyone with mild to moderate acne would benefit from the Regimen and anyone with severe acne who is limited or does not have other alternatives will see marked improvement.

Just wanted to drop you a note and say THANK YOU! I have tried many different products over the years. When I was younger, I tried the dermatologist several times. Nothing seemed to work. The bad part is that I've lived with mild to moderate acne since I was 13. Now, nearing (OMG) my 50th birthday, I decided that I could no longer live with acne. After trying an herbal regimen, I was on the verge of going to the dermatologist again.
I decided to check the internet one more time. This is when I found acne.org. What a find--a genuine treasure. I thought, I should give this program a try. After all, I've been trying different things for many years, this is less than $20 to try.
I started with the Basis Soap for Sensitive Skin, On the Spot and an oil free moisturizer that I had on hand. Within days I could see a change. I did make the mistake that many make in starting too fast. While redness wasn't a big problem, dry skin and peeling was a huge problem. I also didn't think about protecting the skin under my eyes...big mistake. I wasn't too keen on the amount of time it took to gently apply the products, the pay off was worth it.
I quickly realized that ordering your BP gel made a lot of sense. I like your product much, much better than the On the Spot. What can I say? Your program works like magic.
I've recommended your site to many that have noticed how clear my skin is becoming and have asked what I'm using. Many think I've gone to the dermatologist. I tell them all the same thing...Acne.org.
Thank you so much for sharing your story and for your web site. It is most refreshing to find someone who seems to care about helping others.
Just wanted to be one of MANY success stories using the Regimen. I use Cetaphil cleanser, Acne.org BP gel, and Olay Complete and it has worked like gang busters! I am on week 4 or 5. Obviously it has worked well enough that I am not obsessing on how long it has been since my last break out.
Like you plan clearly states...stick with it and don't sway from the regimen. Like everyone else, I have tried it ALL and I used to get HUGE painful acne, not the little whitehead kind. I jumped the gun a little and put the full amount on and man did that dry my face out. But I throttled back for a week and then worked back up and I am super impressed.
You and your crew should get a Noble prize or honorary doctorate! Thanks and keep it up. You are changing the world one face (and self-esteem) at a time.
I know you probably hear this a lot, but thank you so much. I had a problem with horrible cystic acne all throughout middle and high school. I kept waiting to get out of puberty, when everyone said that acne would stop. Yeah, right! My mom still has acne, the same kind as me.
Last year I started going to school. I study acting, particularly film. Love it or hate it, I'm expected to have perfect skin when I walk into an audition. Last year I got fed up with my face hurting, and feeling embarrassed all the time. It really put me in my head at an audition, to be thinking about how awful my face looked that day.
This June I ordered the products (Kit) off your website and man, my acne still lasted a while. But finally, I got the hang of how to make the regimen work for me. You're great. I got done shooting my first film yesterday, and my face looked damn good, if I do say so myself. And it's even my worst skin week of the month!
Anyway, thanks. Thanks a lot.

If you have acne, today is your lucky day. Your struggle is over. Since I turned 30 (I'm 38 now), every morning before I opened my eyes, I would run my fingers over my face searching for acne 'nodules.' Typically, I'd have one or two, sometimes more and on a few glorious mornings none (although they often formed during the day). Based on their size, I would decide whether or not to get them shot with cortisone. Luckily, I knew of a dermatologist's office where the nurses would shoot them at 8:30 or 11:30 a.m. for $10. The cortisone shots got rid of the nodules, but they also caused 'divots' or holes in my face. Once I had enough divots to justify the expenditure, I'd have them filled with collagen for $500. I saw dozens of dermatologists, went on and off antibiotics and spent hundreds of dollars on topical treatments, but none of it stopped the nodules from forming. So that was my miserable life. I recently got engaged and considered not having a wedding for fear of what my face might look like on my wedding day. On a desperate Internet search, I found acne.org. The testimonials (like this one) sounded promising and the solution was cheap, so I tried it. I have not had a single nodule in two months! My face was red for the first two weeks, but then it regained its normal color. It is now as clear and smooth as it was before all this acne business started. No more cortisone shots, collagen injections or worries about my wedding. Thank God for Dan. If you are a prisoner of acne, you are about to be freed! Go to the drug store and buy one of the recommended soaps, one of the recommended moisturizers and every Neutrogena On-the-Spot they have. Follow Dan's directions exactly, and you will be acne free. Good luck!
