My Current Acne Regimen: Acne.org Clarisonic PMD
ADULT ACNE TREATMENT :: ACNE.ORG | BNF REVIEW
Dear Dan and Acne.org,
I struggled with cystic acne on my face (mainly my chin, but also my chest and back - yuck!) from my early teens until last year when I found acne.org during yet another frantic search for a "cure" after another breakout. I spent over a decade searching for a "cure", slathering on concealer, and hiding from photographers at weddings. I've been following the regimen for a year, and couldn't be more pleased with the results - I rarely have a zit nowadays, and if I do it's usually because I forget to bring my benzyl peroxide with me on a trip. I use the Acne.org benzyl peroxide (you can't find a better, more reasonably priced BP on the internet or in the store), but everything else I use is "drugstore" - Trader Joe's nourish facewash and moisturizer, and Neutrogena Healthy Skin Night AHA+.
My "before" picture is from 2009 - my chin was covered with with cysts and I had some on my cheeks and near my hairline. I even had makeup on in that picture (yep, I even wore concealer to work out because I was that self-conscious). My "after" picture was taken at a family gathering last month. I'm not even wearing makeup in that picture (I rarely wear much concealer/foundation now - usually a light foundation like Almay smartshade). I still have some scarring on my face and chest, but it is fading slowly. Not having new outbreaks to contend with has accelerated the healing process.
I knew it was working when my boyfriend told me "Your makeup looks great today. Really natural." and I wasn't wearing any! Please, if you're on the fence, do yourself a favor and give the regimen a try for a few months (you will flake for the first week. Don't worry, it stops.). I wish I had found acne.org ten years ago!!!
I started the regimen in November of 2013. I had acne since I was in 5th grade and it has been out of control since then. I have purchased so many different and products guaranteeing that it will clear up my acne. They didn't work and by the time I was in 7th grade had cystic acne.
The regimen is the only product that helped at all. In the first few months it helped my acne get to a mild stage and since March my skin has been clearing up so well. I have barely any breakouts and if there is, it is not as bad as the breakouts I used to get.
The before photo was in October, the after is May
Thank you acne.org so much!

Two words: Life Saver! I started the Regimen before I went off Yaz (for the 2nd time). The first time I stopped Yaz, I broke out horribly. Scarring, cystic acne mostly on my cheeks and chin. I have officially been off of Yaz for 147 days and no acne at all! I started the Regimen a week before going off the pill (December 2013) and it has made my skin so beautiful. I have been off the pill for 5 months. I hope I can see these results for the rest of my life, or however long I have to deal with acne. Thank you so much for letting us in on your secret!
How I Cleared My Skin + My Current Skin Care Routine
I actually didn't have much of an acne problem until I was in my 20s. I tried various products with decent results, but never lasting improvement. I got to a point where it was really bad - painful, embarrassing - and I starting searching online for something new. I had used BP before as a spot treatment, so when I found Dan's regimen it made sense to me that using it with a more generous application could work. I found that everything Dan said about the regimen is true: it takes 3 months to see real difference and you might feel like quitting but don't do it! The regimen really works! I still have break outs now, but just one or two periodically; acne is no longer a painful condition that daily plagues me. I also love the products that acne.org makes - large quantities for affordable prices made with quality ingredients. These are things I look for in anything I buy and I'm so glad that Dan is conscious of these things with the products he sells.
