• <p>Hi, Dan, I'm sure you get a ton of these emails a day, but I just wanted to send one to thank you so much for putting your regimen on the web. I am 23 and have suffered from acne since I was about 14. I managed to clear it up for a few years with medication, but about 6 months ago, it came back with a vengeance. I was 23, newly married, and had acne. It made me so self concious and ruined my mood almost everyday. My mother stumbled across your web site about a month ago and I began the program immediately (I was skeptical, of course, but willing to try anything) and within a few days, my skin began to clear up. I have had full results now, and feel so great!! Even the skin that did not have any pimples looks healthier. I am absolutely thrilled with your program and want to thank you for being selfless enough to share it with the rest of us. Sincerely,</p>

  • <p>Just thought I'd write a note about how the regimen has been working for me. </p><p>I used to spend $100's on brands from Dept Stores. I'm allergic to most products.</p><p>My main concern is acne scarring. I'm 30 & figure I'll have acne all my life but the scarring makes it even worse</p><p>Prior to The Regimin:<br />For my mild acne, I used Murad's Acne Complex. I lived in Arizona and I think the dry air helped because I didn't breakout as much with the complex. I used it a long time ago when it first came out and was over $400 (was a teen). But now the complex costs less & I used it religiously in Arizona for 3 years. Still had scarring, when I broke out.</p><p>I moved to California & found that the air quality & the huimidity did a number on me. The Acne Complex actually made my skin worse. My skin was really flaky & oily but would break out in the cheeks and chin area. </p><p>I found the Acne.org site and decided to give the regimin a try with the stuff in the drugstore. I decided to use Baby Magic Baby Wash on my face. It was the only thing gentle enough for my body (other products caused cysts) so I figured I'd give it a try on my face. For the BP, I used the Neutrogena On the Spot. The lotion I used was from Murad.</p><p>After a couple of days I noticed that I needed more moisture so I used the Lachydrin 5 during the day. I noticed a difference within a week. I got a prescription for gel BP from my doc. After the month, I bought Dan Kern's BP (cheaper than scrip & bigger)</p><p>After Regimen:<br />4 mos. later & I added some steps, toning with Bactine & Neosporine on open sores. B/C even with gentle washing white heads popped, treating makes for less scarring.</p><p>I still break out on jawline a little (hands on face, stress) but my skin is soft & smooth & I don't scar as much. (cells turn over is faster, so old scars fade faster)</p><p>My Steps:<br />Cleanse: Baby Magic Baby Wash<br />Tone: Bactine<br />Treat: Dan's BP<br />Spot Treat: Neosporine<br />Lotion: Lachydrin 5 (day)</p><p>I feel like I've got my acne under control.<br />Thanks Dan!</p>

  • <p>Dear Dan,</p><p>I just wanted to say thanks. I have been using your regiment for about 8 months. It has worked wonderfully, thank you so much. It was tremendously generous and kind of you to share with others what you had discovered. I am truly appreciative!</p><p>Thanks!</p>


  • <p>Dan,</p><p>Thank you so much for discovering this amazing regimen - it saved my life.</p><p>I had never struggled with acne until about a year ago when I started college. It happened so fast, it was like my face transformed overnight. Prior to my transition into college, my skin had been next to flawless and I never had to worry. Even through puberty I never had much of an issue aside from an occasional pimple.</p><p>I believe that the suddenness and the overall magnitude of my acne situation sent me into a state of deep depression. It overwhelmed me and I didn’t even want to go out in public. It had gotten to the point where I was blowing friends off and skipping classes because I was so humiliated by what people would think of me. I literally didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin, and I had no idea where to begin as far as treatments went. I tried using tons of different products ranging from those containing salicylic acid, tea tree oil, glycerin, and even benzyl peroxide. All of these products in the past seemed to make my acne even worse- that is why I was so skeptical about this regimen at first. </p><p>Nothing worked. Hear me when I say that NOTHING satisfied me until I began this regimen. Sure monocycline helped my pimples stay smaller and less painful, but I still was not impressed with the quality of my skin. I finally started following the regimen step by step and within weeks I noticed major improvements in my skin. The first few weeks are difficult because your skin really has to adjust to the benzyl peroxide, but I promise you that the regimen works if you stick it out and continue doing everything you are supposed to. </p><p>It has been about 7 months since I started the regimen and I am now acne free. I still get an occasional pimple, but that is expected. I feel beautiful and I am so happy with my skin thanks to Dan : ) A weight has definitely been lifted from my shoulders now that I can focus on my studies without having to worry about my skin. I’m not sure that I would have ever found a treatment had I never come across this website. </p><p>Please believe that you can cure live a normal, happy life without having to worry about acne. This regimen really does work. I wish you all the best of luck; you won’t regret your decision.</p><p>Thanks again Dan!</p>

  • <p>Hi Dan,</p><p>I worked for Dr. Fulton at Vivant for about 2 years as their education coordinator and he had me using so many different experimental products that my acne never cleared up. As a matter of fact, my skin was so much worse and so much harder to clear up after I completely stopped using Vivant. I tried everything and it seemed as if nothing would work.</p><p>After reading your blog and skin regimen, it seemed so simplistic that I figured it was worth a try. 3 weeks later, my skin is perfect, which it hasn't been in over 3 years. I am not having breakout even during my period, which makes me so happy. </p><p>I just want to say "kudos and thank you" for keeping it simple. Keep up the good work!</p>

  • <p>I started the Acne.org treatments about a year ago.</p><p>I'm a 35 year old woman and have had major breakouts since about 17, getting worse in my mid-twenties. I have gone from inexpensive drug store treatments and on-line ordering to very expensive lines; doesn’t work.</p><p>Since I have been using Acne.org my skin has been perfect. I am so excited I want to tell everyone I know, but it is so simple, people seem to think I am crazy.</p><p>Anyways, thank you so much, these products have solved by largest body issue!</p><p>I use the cleanser, treatment and moisturizer in the day and the cleanser and AHA+ at night. As I said, perfect. I've just started to use make-up successfully for the first time in my life. With age marks and many acne scars being able to use foundation will be nice. Please try and develop a moisturizer with some sunscreen.</p><p>Thanks all, thanks again, you rock!</p>

  • <p>I kind of expected acne in my teens. I dealt with it by doing all the stuff they tell you to: washing my face carefully, using prescription antibiotics, over the counter treatments...and it went away, only to resurface with a vengeance when I was 20. Which was not supposed to happen. Acne isn't supposed to blight your adult years.</p><p>I got pretty depressed over it. It wasn't severe acne, but that just meant that my GP never referred me to a dermatologist for it. I wouldn't go out without make up. Couldn't even answer the door. Hated summer, when all my make up melted off. Couldn't swim because then it'd wash away.</p><p>I tried Dan Kern's regimen without a huge amount of hope. Hell, I'd tried everything else--I even altered my diet, took holistic, ayurvedic and all kinds of other alternative supplements. I didn't expect some topical treatment to work. It never had before. But, I was really desperate. I was 24 and the acne was really ruining my life.</p><p>Within a few weeks there was a definite improvement. In a few months I was clear. I've stayed clear--I can sunbathe, I can swim, and I frequently leave the house with no make up on at all. After years of taking care of my skin, it finally looks really beautiful now. I can't tell you the difference this has made to me. The only thing I wish is that someone had told me how to use BP properly when I was 17!</p>

  • <p>Dear Dan & Co.,</p><p>I've been on the regimen for over a year now, and it really works. I wish I had known about it sooner. I had acne for 14 years before I found your website. Now I'm clear. If I stop the regimen, I get acne again. I know this is part of my life now if I want to stay clear.</p><p>I love everything about your organization - the video blogs, the human beans, the honesty and dedication. I really appreciate your interest in the environment and sustainability too.</p><p>I have tried to spread the word to a few of my friends who also suffer with acne, but I've been disappointed because nobody else seems to understand that you have to follow the regimen exactly and not cut corners or take breaks. And people seem to get discouraged because it takes time to see results. A lot of people just want a quick fix. But there really isn't one. You can't change your genetics! Even accutaine only kept me clear for 1 year... but that's another story.</p><p>By the way, I am going into healthcare (I just have one more year to go before I'm a licenced dentist), and I want you to know that I'm going to tell my patients about your website if I think it would benefit them. I just hope they see it through and don't give up.</p><p>I think the best way to spread the success though is for parents to get their children started on the regimen when they develop acne and supervise them to make sure it's being done properly. If the regimen was taught to kids who suffer from acne the same way they're taught to clean their teeth and their hair, etc., then that would just become a standard part of their life, and they would pass it on to their kids too. Acne runs in my family, so I'll definitely be getting my kids on the regimen as soon as they need it. I don't want my sons or daughters to be miserable teenagers because of their skin!</p><p>So thank you Dan and everyone involved in acne.org! I've become a happier person because of you.</p><p>Take care,<br />Julia</p>

  • <p>Hello Dan,<br />I just wanted to let you know how appreciative I am for your advice. After years of trying everything that was suggested by dermatologists and commercials, your methods have brought me the only lasting success I've seen.</p><p>I've been following your advice for over a year now with products from my local grocery store and have had consistently clear skin from doing so. It's night and day to what I was and it's done a great deal towards improving my confidence and way of life.</p><p>I tell anyone I can about your advice and how grateful I am for finding it online, I just needed to tell you as well.</p><p>Thank you,</p>
