Hey Dan! I just wanted to say that what your are doing is giving a gift to those of us that are not so lucky to be blessed with perfect skin! After a onset of adult acne caused by homones, according to my dermatologist, I then tried all the products that had empty promises to change my skin, but nothing worked well and nothing made me feel like the product makers really care about people and the condition of their skin! When I watched your step by step video (after browsing acne websites online for hours at a time) you had me at "hey"! Your made me feel like your were a good friend in my room giving me advice on my skin care! And then I thought "well, nothing else is working! This is worth a shot! What do I have to loose?" So I tried it and I am realizing that everything I thought I knew about my face and skin, I did not know! Not only does the regimen work, but it works so well! And I CAN afford it thanks to you! There is nothing like loving a product so much, and then not being able to continue to afford it! So I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for all you do and all the effort you put into what you do! Please keep it up and I vow to do my part to spread the word so we all (the whole world) will have the chance to have beautiful skin!!!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

I just wanted to say thank you for providing this website and your products. I can’t tell you how much of a help it was/ still is for me.
I spent countless hours on the internet looking for ways to get rid of acne, and then I found your website followed your regimen for a couple of months and poof it all disappeared. I had moderate acne for about 6 years.
On a side note you should try to get your products into stores (mainly the BP) I think you could do extremely well that way. Plus it would be easier for all of us who buy your products just to go get them!
I wanted to say a huge thanks for your website and for sharing your knowledge on an acne treatment that actually works. Being a scientist I was initially skeptical of this regime but did my background research, and decided to try it out after being convinced of its scientific merit.
I have been using your regime for about 2.5 years now and it has changed my life. I had suffered mild to moderate acne in my T-zone area since my late teens and discovered your site after ten years of daily break-outs that seemed to be worsening with age. Now I am essentially acne-free and it feels great!! The first three months were the hardest to get through as my skin was very sensitive to the benzoyl peroxide - but once it 'hardened', I've never looked back. My boyfriend still comments on how great my skin looks and feels compared to my acne days.
Thanks again for making a difference!!
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 just want to add my voice to all the others saying that this regimen works really well. I happened to have some BP in my cabinet when I learned about it so I could try it without spending anything. Within a week my current acne was cleared and nothing new was showing up. That was about 6 months ago and while I used to have acne deep in my skin, I now only have a very occasional surface blemish - and they're usually on the spots I don't cover as well. When I ran out of the stuff in my cabinet, I started using Dan Kern's product and I have to say the gel has a nice feel to it and the price is great. I used to be so embarrased by the condition of my skin and now I hold my head up and feel confident looking people squarely in the eye. Even the old red marks are fading now that my skin has calmed down and they have time to heal.

I'm 26 years old, and I have had moderate acne since I was about 14. I have tried an ungodly amount of products and treatments over the past 12 years, over-the-counter as well as prescription. Nothing has ever worked. When I came across Dan Kern's site one day, I decided to give it a shot. The first 2 days I noticed no difference, but by the 3rd morning my skin had a fresh breakout, was extremely red, itchy, dry and irritated. I knew that these were side effects that might come up in the first week or so, as Dan warns, but I had a really hard time with it for a couple of days. Going to work or anywhere out in public was really tough. My skin was so red and dry that it was litterally flaking off and I could feel it crack when I smiled. Not that I was doing much smiling! I almost quit then. But Dan said this can happen, and you have to stick it out so that your skin can adjust. It took a lot of will power, but I stuck it out. I will tell you though, I adjusted the regimen a t!
eensy bit. See, my skin is extremely sensitive and dry to begin with, even without the BP. So here is what I do: NIGHT: I wash with the cleanser, I use a much smaller amount of the BP than what I started out using, I only use it in problem areas, and I use the moisturizer. MORNING: I wash with the cleanser, I use a teensy bit of the BP as a spot treatment only (or in major problem areas), and I use a stronger moisturizer (Alba Botanicals Jasmine & Vitamin E). I also exfoliate my skin (very gently, Dan!) at least twice a week. As all women know, it is very hard to put on makeup over flaky skin with passable results. Exfoliating eliminates the flakiness. I do it in my moring shower with the cleanser and a wash cloth, VERY GENTLY rubbing in little circles.
It has been 4 weeks now, and I don't even remember those 2 or 3 rough days at the beginning. My skin is fantastic. It is soft and lovely and CLEAR, and I'm still in shock. I don't even need to wear makeup. Dan, how can I ever thank you?
I post as headswapop on acne.org. My names kev and i'm a 24 year old from leeds in the UK.
I basically wanted to personally thank you for sharing the regimen with the world, i have suffered moderate acne for about 6 years now and had tried (unsuccessfully) lots and lots of different acne treatments only to be let down time and again. As an acne sufferer yourself you must know how much it impacts your life, i was constantly checking my skin in the mirror, thought about it constantly and missed lots of social occassions.
Well..... things have most definiltly changed now, it's been 8 weeks on the regimen and i have been 95% clear for the last 3/4 weeks, it's had a huge impact on my life and i just feel so much happier and more confident. You did that dan and believe me when i say i just can't thank you enough.
I am always telling whoever will listen how i managed to clear my skin and about acne.org. I just hope the regimen continues to work for me. Anyways thanks once again dan the world needs more peolple like you :-}
dear dan, my daughter has had acne about 4 years. she is 11 years old. she has what i think is severe acne. i was on the internet looking for a dermatologist to make an appointment with and found your website. well of course i was like everyone else , figured it was not going to work but thought well it is only going to cost $15 to give it a try. well she has been using it for 17 days now and i would say she is probably cleared up 75%. she says people do not call her zit face any more. now she is in middle school and lots of other kids have acne and now she is getting hers cleared up thanks to you. thanks for the free information and we will be back with you in a couple of weeks to let you know how things are going. i am sure you have changed many peoples lifes and the way they feel about themselves. thanks so much again, you should feel good about yourself for helping so many people.

I've been meaning to write this for ages-i'd never suffered with acne throughout my youth, but when i decided to come off the contraceptive pill to have my daughter I suffered with a really severe bout of acne. It was described by the doctor as severe pustular acne and if I wasn't trying to conceive, the doctor said I would've been prescribed accutane. I tried just about everything else including 10% benzoyl peroxide which the doctor prescibed (which hadn't worked) so when i came across your regimen i was sceptical to say the least but i was desperate and so i thought i'd give it a try. Initially i suffered with some dry skin which even flaked a little, but i persevered and i must say i'm glad i did.....within weeks my skin was improved and after about 6 weeks i no longer had spots just red marks and scars (because i couldn't resist picking the spots!!). I still use 2.5% benzoyl peroxide when i feel any spots coming up but my skin has definately improved 100%, so i just wanted to say thank you and i hope that this might encourage other people to try the regimen. Unfortunately i don't have any pictures to prove it because i wouldn't allow anyone near me with a camera when my skin was at its worst-i just hope people take my word for it!!!
