• I am a 40 year old mother of three that has been dealing with cystic acne for years.

    I was at the end of my rope with my skin and it was getting worse every day. My chin area would break out so badly that it would physically hurt to smile. I found a video on you tube talking about the acne.org and was excited to see the girls result. I was a little hesitant because I have spent HUNDREDS of dollars on other skin care programs that just didn't work. I had no other options so I figured why not. I will never look back. My skin cleared up in DAYS!

    I have had a few breakouts try and ruin my day but they cleared up within 24 hours. That has NEVER happened to me before. For the first time in years, I am excited to wake up and look in the mirror and not see huge, painful acne. Thank you Dan so much for breaking the code on acne.

    I am forever in your debt.

  • 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! :-)

  • Dan, You are the man! I have struggled with severe cystic acne for nearly 10 years now and every day of it has been a struggle. I have used everything from over the counter products to proactiv and even accutane. I think Proactiv was helping for while, but it was so inconsistent causing terrible breakouts every few months that I just had to stop using it. I only wish I had stopped sooner and found your products faster. I have been on your regimen now for four weeks and I am finally clear for the first time in years. I still have very minimal scars, but those are fading extremely fast and I could not be happier with your products. I absolutely love the moisturizer and jojoba oil. They seem to be the perfect balance for my skin. Please, do whatever you can to make your products more aware to the general public because I seriously just got my life back. To anyone struggling with acne, PLEASE give this regimen a shot. It's the only thing that has ever worked for me!! I'd shout this from the rooftops if I could!!!
    Thanks again Dan---Keep going!

  • I'm a 24 year old woman from India. Have been following the regimen for about 2 weeks now. My skin looks fantastic.:) I use dove soap before I slather on the BP(In india, the only 2.5% BP I've seen comes in a small tube that lasts for 2 weeks max. It costs about Rs 60 and it is manufactured by galderma). I have very dry, sun-sensitive skin and I follow up with Oil of Olay SPF-15 moisturizer. Works like a charm. Like most Indians, I have light brown skin. The first 2-3 days of BP made my skin rough, and there was a mild bleaching effect in patches. I was a little hesitant to continue. People at work even asked if I had a vitamin deficiency (If you've suffered a long time from acne, you realise that the average person isn't too big on tact).

    But I decided to give it time. I've suffered from moderate-severe acne for about 8 years now with limited success in treating it. I've tried retino-A, clindamycin, oral antibiotics(doxycycline, tetracycline - they were terrible. Felt like throwing up all the time. They really messed up my tum). I've also tried BP in the past, but probably didn't apply it effectively. This is brilliant Dan. You're doing the world a great service. Keep up the good work, and god bless.

  • Hello. I am a 14 year old male from Indiana. I just started getting acne a couple of months ago. I didn't think much of it untill everyone at school and even my friends started making fun of the serverenes of it. So... I started surfing the net to see what I could do about my problem. When I found your site, I did what it said...my face is starting to really clear up! I used to think whenever I was talking to someone, they would be staring at the red dots all over my face. It irritated me alot. Thank you for giving my life back! Feel free to put this e-mail on your site!

  • I have to say this... I am a long-time mild acne sufferer. Definitely not severe, but just enough acne ALL the time to drive me CRAZY. I tried Retin-A, but that failed miserably...I was on that for nearly 9 months and saw no improvement at all.
    Then I found Dan's regimen... I bought his BP cream, and 6 weeks ago...and literally have been completely clear for 3 straight weeks now. I have NEVER had completely clear skin. EVER. I used to get bad breakouts around my "time of the month" and the past 2 months, I got NOTHING. No pimples...no breakouts...nothing but beautiful, clear skin.

    Here's what I use: Cetaphil Antibacterial Bar (Morning and night), Neutrogena Healthy Skin Moisturizure-SPF15 (Morning), and FULL index finger worth of Dan's BP at night. I don't use the BP in the morning, and don't moisturize at night. It's a beautiful thing.

    THANKS SO MUCH DAN. This stuff is amazing.

  • Hi Dan,

    I used to have pretty bad stress-related acne that started when I was about 22, right up to 27 - 4 months ago when I tried your program!

    I had a little peeling for a week or so when I first started, but I stuck it out and 4 months later my skin is the clearest it's been in 5 years! I don't need to wear makeup anymore unless I _want_ to. No more needing to spend 20 minutes putting on makeup in the morning just to look human! No matter what I do or eat, or how crazy my job is, or how little sleep I'm getting, my skin still looks great. The occasional spot (and I really do mean occasional... wheeeeee!) vanishes within 1-3 days.

    I honestly never thought I could have skin like this, and that people who did have skin like this were just 'the lucky ones'.

    And best of all, it's so affordable - cheap really! Especially compared to spending hundreds of dollars at a dermatologist for methods that may not work, or if they do, work only in the short term.

    Thanks ever so much from Singapore. It's such a wonderful, generous thing you've done creating and maintaining this site.

    Warmest regards,

  • I'm now 28 and have been bothered by acne for over half my life. For almost as long, I've seen more than my fair share of dermatologists and been on just about every acne prescription out there. For me, the only one that completely worked was accutane, which of course has side effects that were hard to cope with. And unfortunately, the benefits of accutane wore off after a year. The effects from a second round of it were similarly short-lived. In my early twenties, after accutane failed to cure my acne, I conceded defeat and let acne rule my life. Not surprisingly, I sunk into a deep depression.

    Recently, I regained my determination to live life on my own terms. First, I tried proactiv and then some expensive microdermabrasion and extraction treatments. These were only slightly effective, and very unkind to my wallet. Two months ago, I was almost ready to give up again. Then I came across your site. I immediately went out and bought some recommended BP and moisturizer, and for the last 6 weeks I've completely acne-free! My skin looks just as good as it did right after my accutane regimen--but of course your regimen is cheap and without the nasty side-effects. Thanks Dan for all your dedication to helping acne-sufferers everywhere!

    Let me also say that as a medical student, you've influenced my sense of the ideal doctor-patient interaction. My personal doctors were so quick to write prescriptions without first seeing whether cheaper alternatives (which I was not aware of) would work. They also were too busy to explain how to correctly apply the products and which moisturizers were best for acne-prone skin. You, on the other hand, guide us through the regimen, so as to leave no doubt how to correctly follow it. I try to emulate your deliberate approach as I learn how to interact with patients, regardless of the particular malady.

  • dan,

    i cant thank you enough for taking the time to post this clear-skin regime online. i have been on menocycline for about 4 years now, and have tried differin, retin-a, and countless over-the-counter products. my last system worked somewhat but was inCREDIBLY complicated. this is so simple and works 10 times better than anything else ive ever tried. i actually have clear, even skin and ive been using it for only a week. its a breakthrough. ive been telling everyone i know :) thank you because i read it just in time for my senior trip to california...granted, i had a lot more fun this way.
