Thank you so much for your selflessness in making this website.
Im a 21 year old male and I've been dealing with acne since I was 14.
About a year ago, I stopped my perscription creams and pills because of lack of improvement. I regularly had 2-3 small pimples and thats how it stayed. After about 5 months off my old regimen, my acne came back with a vengeance. In a matter of weeks about 50 % of my face was covered with acne. I was devastated because not only did I want to hide, but my job requires me to work in close contact with people.
I didn't know where to turn but prayer. I asked God for a solution to my affliction and in a few days I stumbled upon your website. I could see that you where an average bloke willing to help people and I was drawn to your sincerity. I went to the chemist and bought the materials. Within two weeks on the regimen, I saw a little improvement. I continued on the regimen until at four months, I was finally clear. At times it was very hard to continue and many times I felt like giving up. But through your guidance, continued prayer, and the success stories of others,I prevailed and am so glad with the results.
I can now focus on what I truly enjoy, turning others to Jesus. You see I'm a lay missionary for the Catholic church. Me and my team are constantly having people over and running faith studies. I'm also required to get up an speak in front of hundreds of people to tell them what Jesus means to me. Through this new confidence, I now feel free to be myself and not hide in my room. I feel free to get up in front of a crowd without the fear of people looking at my acne instead of hearing what I have to say.
Thank you so very much Dan for your dedication and sincerity,
I will continue to pray for you and your awesome work,
Here's a review on a product I bought on acne.org.
I was going to put on tracker, but can't find where it is. I think it used to be a button at the top of the messageboards? I liked it that way so I could get to it easily. Anyway, no rush on this... whenever you can get to it.
It would be a gross understatement to say THANK YOU. What did I do today that I have longed to do for the last seven years? I left my house without makeup, Dan. I left my house, went shopping, and saw a friend. I didn't flich when I stepped under fluorescent lights. I didn't avoid people's eyes when I got up close to them. I didn't hesitate to look in the mirror when I was trying on clothes. I have not been able to do any of these things in seven years. I am 23.
And now I understand exactly why you started this site--today while out shopping, I looked at all the people around me, and noticed those who had acne, and it was all I could do to stop myself from approaching them and telling them about your site. I want to change their lives the way you have changed mine. Please, please make an Acne.org t-shirt, Dan! I can think of no better way to spread the message than by acne sufferers to walk by me, see my shirt, and then see my clear face. You have changed my life. I am tearing up right now just thinking about my face and my reunion with myself.
God bless you,
Amanda, Los Angeles
When I was a kid, my face was always as clear as a bell. When I got into my mid-twenties, and as my endometriosis worsened, everything went downhill!
I have been through several phases of terrible breakouts. I thought this last one might endure forever. It lasted for over a year. I couldn't clear up my face to save my life. Then, suddenly it took a terrible turn for the drastic worse. I was beside myself. So beside myself that I decided to Google "acne." Score!
After two months of religiously, copiously following the regimen, I was seeing only slight progress. I came back to acne.org and got the advice that led to my victory:
1. Don't quit too soon and
2. Stop wearing makeup.
Giving up the only thing that hid my disastrous acne was hard and yet freeing.
I am 100% acne free and have remained so for about five straight months.
I love you! I love you! Thank you forever!

Your video was awesome at showing us how to clean her face. All your no-no's we were doing on a daily basis! Thanks so much for helping us.
After one week, her face is nearly cleared up!
Hey Dan et All.
I've tried many things off of the shop shelf over the years and none worked for me, some even making it worse! I started to give up... but the first photo attached was my breaking point. I blew up and decided enough was enough and start researching \ looking for something... anything! Then I found you and everything made sense. I took the plunge and started using BP 2.5% with moisturizer and Jojoba Oil.
What a difference! I just looked at that photo tonight and actually forgot how bad my face was a mere few months ago. I'm genuinely shocked at how bad I allowed it to be, it's actually making me speechless! It is like night and day. I'm 24 and never believe my acne would still be bad at this age, assuming it would calm down by itself. Boy I was wrong!
So simply thank you. Thank you for solving one of the longest problems of my (young) life.
If I could get you guys in a full stadium where all would give you a standing ovation for a full week, I would... but I can't. So all I can say is that I'm forever in your debt.

This regimen changed my life.
I really didn't feel right putting such harsh chemicals into my body.
After stumbling upon your site a few months ago, as a last ditched attempt before i succumbed to the accutane treatment, i decided to give it a go. I wasn't expecting a miracle or anything - i tried to be realistic about how well it might work... but boy, WAS I SHOCKED! Within two weeks of following the regimen using your products my live literally began to change. My destroyed skin started to heal. After using a really "good" exfoliator for so long I never realised that i was doing so much damage to my face. The moment i read your articles on the regimen, someting clicked. It wasnt the food i was eating... it wasnt just stress... it wasn't lack of care.... it was as simple as treating the skin from the outside... giving it time to heal. I look back know and really wish I had been educated years ago.
Now for the first time in 10 years, I feel gorgeous again! I feel that people can see the real me. I dont have to spend hours putting on my makeup - and i dont reapply it three times a day. My skin is pretty much totally spot free and the red marks are also vanishing. My skin has never been so smooth. The confidence and pride i have now make me radiant! As a graphic designer my life is spent anaylsing how things looks... and i became my own biggest critic. I often couldn't bear to look in the mirror.
My relationship with food has also totally turned around. I don't feel guilty anymore about eating food - i had always thought that food was causing my acne, but now I can savour so much without questioning its impact.
So - thanks sooooo much!! I'm so glad i found your site and took a risk..
thumbs up the whole way!!
I read an article on your site from another member about drinking redbush tea to help aswell, and you know what - it works amazingly well! I drink two cups every single day and it definitely boosts my body in the healing process!
Just wanted to share a pic of me when my acne was at it's worst, and a pic of me today.
Huge difference, still have a way to go, but change is possible!??
Big thanks to Dan at Acne.org and everyone over there :D
I am finally having the skin I was born with due to this regimen! I recommend this to anyone with this struggle!
