I would just like everyone to know that the "regimen" works wonders. I'm 27 years old and never really had a pimple until I was 23. My Doctor said it was hormonal and told me birthcontrol should help. Well, it didn't.
I've used all the expensive face products from Arbon to Wexler. About a week ago I was browzing the internet looking for a solution to my minor breakouts. This is when I found acne.org. I decided to try the "regimen" and noticed a difference a dramatic difference in 5 days.
My acne is mild and mostly around the corners of my face and chin. I'm on day 10 and my face is completely clear. My husband has comented on my skin many times now.
Thank you for posting this wonderful "regimen" on the web. I would like to tell everyone to do this faithfully everyday and it will help.
Dear Dan Thanks so much for your site, it's brilliant! I am not a true, serious acne sufferer, but I have had sensitive, spotty, oil and dry skin ever since I hit puberty. It has never been bad enough for the doctor to prescribe anything that would actually clear it up, so I have been trying everything that is in the shops ever since. I was on the pill for a while and that helped, but then I had to come off it because of being a migraine sufferer, and then of course the spots came back! People kept saying I'd grow out of it, but I'm now 25 and the spots have never gone away. I have always felt I had to use lots of make-up to cover them up, and it was such a hassle, I always wished that I could just be one of those clear skinned girls who didn't need to bother with make-up! Well, since discovering your regimen, everything has changed! It is the only thing that has really worked in 12 years, I can't believe it! I thought my skin might be too sensitive, but following your advice to start slowly and use the moisturiser and gentle cetaphil cleanser, my skin has been fine, and I don't get any dry patches either! Although I'm not a true acne sufferer, my skin has made me miserable and this has made a big difference to me, I can now feel confident with no make-up and I get compliments on my skin which is quite a turnaround for me! I really admire your philosophy to pass on the good in your life so that others can benefit too. Thanks!

I'm wary of being too enthused because I don't want to put people off, you know the too good to be true rule, this is the exception. It has changed the way I live my life.
I was searching the net in pure desperation, 15 year of terrible skin, thousands of pounds down the drain, dozens of worthless, stressful diets - then this.
It seemed too easy, but I had nothing to lose. Three weeks later I had my first night out without caking myself in make up, hiding in the shadows and cringing every time a camera made an appearance. I no longer had to worry about how close I stood people or the best way to hide my face.
Even after that I wasn't a believer I slacked on the routine and my skin problems returned, I had to start afresh but it was okay because I knew it would work.
I'm angry now that two GP's let me take bogus pills and then believe nothing else could be done. The only issue I have is I had to buy some white towels. Do this now, it will be one of the best decisions you ever make.

I never really had any acne problems when I was a teenager, it wasn’t until I started working for at a coffee shop at the age of 21 that my acne started. I’m definitely not an expert on the composition of the skin, but I think the bad airflow from the coffee shop may have altered the pH in my skin, it’s the only reason I can think of why it started around the same time I began working there...
Anyways, it was pretty awful … my whole face was covered with acne. When I left the coffee shop, I went to work at a spa. The estheticians loved to work on my skin since it needed so much work. They tried everything, from glycolic acid peels to microdermabrasion, facial after facial. Nothing worked. I felt awful, ugly and I never wanted to go out of my house. Then one day, in my frustration, I started crying and I prayed. The next thing I knew, I felt I had to go online and just type “acne” in the search box. I did and the first site that popped up was acne.org. I read everything on the web site and ordered the supplies to begin the regimen. One month later, my skin was completely cleared up.
It’s been 2 years now and I still use the regimen. I get an occasional pimple once in a while, but it usually clears up within 1-2 days. I am so thankful for this regimen! And I’m really happy to see all the new products coming out. I have told so many people about this website and will continue to spread the knowledge.
Thank you SO much! :-)

I am a 36 year old man writing to you from Australia & have to say thank you putting your regimen on the web. I have clear skin for the first time in over 20 years! I am really impressed by your simple & effective advice. Good luck in getting the message across to others. Best wishes
I am a 35 year old female with persistent acne. Or shall i say I WAS!! Now I am a 35 year old woman with beautiful skin!! I continued on oral contraception because it would help keep my face in check, although still with continual breakouts. I use your regimen religiously and my face is clear!!! When I don't do the regimen for a few days, the pimples come back, but less severe. As long as I am persistent, and consistent, my face looks beautiful. Thanks for all the work you did on this.

I'm in my 40s and had lots of trouble with acne for soooooooo many years. In fact, I've been battling acne since I was 13 years old. That's a really long time. Really long. What made a normal teenage (and adult) problem worse was/is that I'm a theater actress. MAKEUP! Lots of it.
So, I've tried everything. Even Accutane when I was about 19. Nothing ever kicked it. Until now.
I found you during a Google search of 'acne'. It was that simple. I started the regimen a week before Thanksgiving, 2009. It was brutal those first few weeks but I'm really stubborn and I stuck with it. I also bought your products (which I LOVE!) which really helped tremendously. I appreciate your thoroughness in explaining the regimen because I was pretty heavy handed with the BP in the beginning and my peely redness was out of control. Your guidance has been a huge help throughout this whole process. It been 3 months now that I've dedicated myself to the regimen. You would really never know I had a problem with acne at this point. In fact, today two strangers wanted to know the secret of my beautiful peaches and cream complexion. Shocking! And incredible. I almost teared up, it meant so much to me.
I'm sure you get these letters all the time (and no I don't have any pictures to share -- I'd be mortified!) but I just had to write you and say THANK YOU! This has been life changing. I can't believe my battle with acne is over. I only wish I'd found you sooner!
Much love and appreciation,

Dan, you are the number one in my books!
Ive been using your product for a few months now,
and what can i say, its nothing short of perfect!
your an inspiration.
I felt compelled to write to you to thank you so very much for your site, which I came across by accident. I am a 30 year old Australian mother of two and have tried everything known to man over the past 15 years to try and clear up my acne. Some of which I can't even bring myself to admit. But your regimen is just so simple, and would have to be one of the cheapest things I have tried. It is the only thing that has ever worked! I must admit that I was skeptical at first but only after the first week there were noticeable differences. I no longer feel like I have to hide my face. I am free!!!
There is no way that after all these years it could be so simple. I read over the stories of people who thank you from the bottom of their hearts and when it comes down to it this is an extremely emotional issue. People trust their doctors...only spot treat with benzoyl peroxide, it will ruin your skin otherwise etc...spending your savings on expensive regimes, losing out on promotions, romance, social activities due to low self esteem. How horrible! I was 12 when it started and I really thought one day it will stop. When I'm grown up. I'm 29 and it still haunts me. But I found your web site and I started the regime and it really works! And it's inexpensive at that. I don't know what I would've done if I didn't have the computer. This needs to come out in non-computer form for the others. This is crazy!!!! I am deeply grateful and cannot tell you the reality of what a difference clear skin can make in a persons life. love,
