Hey Dan, I'm just writing to say thanks because yes, your regimen works for me also! I'm a 16 year old student from Ireland and have suffered from acne for 3 years, which is not very long considering the length of time some people have had it for, but lets just say I'm glad I found out about this regimen now rather than suffering for more years. Before using your regimen I felt very embarrassed and had low self esteem due to my spots. I tried other over the counter cures but none of them worked, some even made my spots worse. I have been using the regimen for about 6 months and my skin is soft smooth and almost totally clear. Everyone has been noticing and complimenting me about my skin! I just want to say to anyone who is considering trying your method to just do it, it really does work! Thanks again,
Thank you Dan! My skin was pretty bad throughout high school. When I started college it only got worse. So I came across your website and tried your regimen. After 4 months my skin was completely clear and now after 5 months on the regimen I don't have a single pimple. I get so many compliments on my skin and now when I look back on my old pictures, I wonder why I didn't try this earlier. I appreciate how you're always striving to improve your products for us and only provide us with the highest quality! Thank you!

I visited your website a couple of months ago and was very interested in what you had to say. What helped me take what you had to say to heart is the fact that your website is not about making a buck-but rather helping people. I am a 44 yr. old woman who as a teen did not have an acne problem. It was not until I entered my late 30s-early 40s that acne appeared. I started out using over-the-counter medicines that contained salicylic acid, but nothing cleared me up. So, I decided it was time to pull out the 'big guns'! I purchased Murad, which worked but my acne always reoccurred in several spots. With nothing to loose I took your advice and started gently cleansing with Cetaphil, using the On The Spot by Neutrogena, as well as my variation of the moisturizer (Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer and Alpha Hydrox Oil Free Moisturizer. My skin is CLEAR! Over the last few weeks I have had one or two small pimples but they disappear in a couple of days. I am AMAZED! Now if I can just get rid of the acne scars.
Thank you so much for sharing your information on the website. I told one of my coworkers, whose son has acne, about your regimen. Hopefully it will help him too.
I am 46, and up until last year, suffered acne on my chin constantly! I found an overnight cure and yes, I tried everything over the years my list of trials mimics yours!
I was rubbing my hands at work one day with an antibacterial lotion, I had a nasty big pimple on my chin and I put some on there too.
I put so more on before I went to bed, I thought, why not? Acne is a bacterial inflammation, can't hurt!
By morning the redness was gone, and instead of following the typical route, coming to a head, it was going down! In two days it was gone!
Typical routine ever since has been to apply some jell to my "typical" areas before bed and directly after a shower in the morning. A month supply costs about .99 cents, no skin dry outs and no chemical burns.
Its quite amazing really! I have my 17 year old doing it too and her adolescent acne has all but disappeared. Her boyfriend tried it and now his skin is clearing up.

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU. Your regimen changed my life. I suffered from acne since I was about 13 at times it got better but never went away. I tried many things to clear it up to no avail. They either made it worse or stopped working after a few months. Finally last November I started on your regimen. At first I felt like it was making my skin more irritated than it has ever been but under all that irritation what do you know it cleared up, now I only suffer from the occasional pimple and my skin continues to heal and improve. I have noticed that the texture and feel of it has changed, my pores are getting smaller and the scaring is almost unnoticeable. I don't know what I would have done with out your knowledge!
I have passed your site on to all my fellow sufferers and those who have tried and stuck with it are seeing results as well. So again I give my thanks you have changed my life!!

Just wanted to tell you how happy I am to have found this site. I read the entire "get clear" section and have been following your advice for 2 weeks. I have acne under my chin and on my neck, which has been for the last 2 years after giving birth. Prior to that I had teenage acne. No matter what I seem to have used for the recent acne has not worked. I had tried 10% BP, BIG mistake. It was very irritating and caused itching, etc. Salacytic acid(sp?) did nothing.
I am happy to report that after 2 weeks I have seen tremendous results. I only wish I had found your site sooner. It is easy to understand info and very supportive of the emotional side of acne as well.
I also want you to know that I am posting your website on the Beauty Banter community online at QVC.com. It is where mostly women post their finds on beauty and skincare. There has been quite a bit of posts on acne recently, so I will share your site on there.
Thank you so much for sharing your regimen with everyone! Like you, I tried everything (except Accutane) to control my acne for the past 10 years. At 27 yrs old, I was in tears over my acne. Nothing worked, and if I did find something that did help, it was only temporary. I'm so glad I found your website (Google). It helped me realize that I had been using ALL THE WRONG products. They were too harsh for my very, very sensitive skin. I'm using Purpose liquid soap and moisturizer, along with the left over bottle of Proactive repairing lotion. (Yes, I plan on purchasing the more economical BP gel). I have been on the regimen for 2 1/2 weeks now, and these are the best results I have ever experienced! My forehead is completely clear, and my cheeks (my problem area) only have a couple of pimples under the skin. The red flare-ups are gone, and scars are already starting to disappear!! Thanks again for sharing this invaluable information.

Words cannot express my appreciation for the 2.5% bp gel...it has changed my life! Growing up I was fortunate to have nice skin, even during my teen years. When I turned 21 I started having acne for the first time in my life. For 2 years I tried everything...changing my make up, specialty creams, Rx treatments, etc. I have pale sensitive skin...and when I say sensitive I mean SEN-SI-TIVE! Even the stuff made for reactive skin like mine broke me out - cetaphil, eucerin, etc. Frustrated and lacking the confidence I once had I finally decided to look for alternate treatments. During my research I came across acne.org and was intrigued by the 2.5% bp gel. I had tried zap zyt which was too hard, neutrogena on the spot which did nothing etc., so I was skeptical. Desperate with no where else to turn I took the plunge. My item arrived quickly and there was tons of product. I begain the regimen on a Saturday and by Thursday my skin was perfect...I mean 100% clear. I only have a few r!
ed spots that need to fade. The best thing is that my skin is soooo soft! I was worried I would have drying problems but did not (and I even have dry skin.) I cleanse with purpose in the am, use the bp, then purpose moisturizer with spf. At night I cleans again, apply the bp, and then complex 15 cream. My husband commented that my skin looked great and that I was glowing! I feel happy about my apperance for the 1st time in 2 years...I have soft, clear, radiant skin. I want the world to know about this amazing product...PLEASE NEVER EVER EVER STOP MAKING IT!

Dan- Just wanted to thank you profusely and share with you my story. I'm 25 have been on Benzaclin since 16; when my prescription coverage lapsed earlier this year I was no longer able afford the medication ($270 for a 50mg batch...absurd.) I would experience the occasional zit while on Benzaclin, but for the most part it kept my skin clear, smooth and acne free. Naturallly I started to relapse after a few months without it. By the 3rd month it was no longer bearable. I washed dilligently, my sister had some leftover Differin and I tried to used that for over a month, to no avail. I started looking for answers and came across your site. Truly a godsend. It's like you've 'open sourced' this problem. I began your regimen using over the counter products...This helped reduce the size and frequency of my acne. When your products came in the mail.....dramatic results. Its only been a day (yes, one day) so things haven't yet completely cleared, but my face feels soothed, calm, and pain free, and I can see the healing taking place. A source of immense anguish is gone. . . Look forward to being able to report back in a month or so with a totally cleared face.
Thanks so much!!

Thank you so much Acne.org.
I have battled acne on and off for the past 15 years. I have African American, Mexican American skin so it's not easy to treat. I started having acne at 15 years old and I tried everything Proactiv, Retin-a, Murad you name it. Living in southern California, I had the opportunity to go to a top dermatologist featured in Extreme Makeover TV show. I went to several doctors and after underwhelming results I almost gave up. Then I started researching online and I gave your regime a shot. I used your regime with acne script and my skin cleared up. After finishing acne script, I continued with the regime products only and I have been testing to see if the results last. I'm happy to say it's been a year and my skin is finally not a concern. Dan Kern has finally let clear skin be an option for everyone and the price isn't outrageous.
Thank you so much! Just try it and you will never go back.
