I just wanted to thank you so much for developing the regimen. I had been doing it for a long time on my own- wash, BP, moisturizer, but I never saw the dramatic results I was looking for. Then I compared what I was doing with your regimen and figured out I needed to be using BP twice daily and needed to moisturize every time. I've gotten a lot more consistent, doing the same things each day and trying to keep improving results by doing little things like not touching my face, changing my pillow sheets ect. It's been amazing, I have no new breakouts, just working on reducing the scarring I have. Something that has helped tremendously as well as a bonus is calamine lotion(with antihistamine). I put it on before bed and wake up with an even skin tone and a lot less redness. Thank you for your great work on here! I always come and check out reviews before putting anything on my face.
ps. Once I run out of the BP I am using, I'm going to start buying yours, it's a lot better deal. :)

I am 1.75m, I weight 50kg, blonde, blue eyes, and I never felt beautiful because of my skin - (actually I felt rather ugly)
Acne started when I was 13 and it never stopped (iam 27 now)... until now!
why something so simple is not more reknown? I went so many time to the dermatologist, tried some many treatments without sucess.
BP is great - but Dan is greater! That when I started to use it the way he advices that I started to see progress. In 3-4 months my face was clear. Amazing!
I now wear a pony tail without shame. you don't know how much it means for a women.
So Dan, please if you have the ressources - translate your web site in as much languages that you can! french, spanish, chinese! People need to know about it.
thank you again
I'm a teenager in highschool and I've had acne since middle school. It's always been something I've been so self conscious about. My mom saw my pain and so did my sister, who also suffered from acne but now has clear skin. They gave me hope but while I was searching the internet for ways to eliminate my acne, I came upon Acne.org. At first, I was skeptical because I've tried so much from ProActiv to Noxzema, nothing was doing it for me. My Regimen kit came in on Janurary 27, 2008 and I used it the next day. Ever since I haven't stopped using it, and its been only 3 months but my face is SO clear ! I'm the happiest ever ! I'm only 16 and it feels great !! I'm sure people reading this think that it's just too exaggerated but honestly, I was there once never believing anything will work and I can't stress it enough, The Regimen is worth a try. You have to be committed though, you must use it every day and I guarentee you will see results! It just blows my mind !! I love it!! Th!
ank you Acne.org !! Thank you Daniel Kern !! This has changed my life !!

So I was getting some blackheads and went to get a facial...big mistake. The lady talked me into getting all these things to start making my face "Glow". I switched from just using Lever 2000 to using all these products. I never had any problems other than those blackheads on my nose, but started having major break-outs. I eventually got a sever case of acne on my cheeks...at 30!!! For a year I kept using al these "sensitive" products created for men that never seemed to work. I was using your regime of the On-the-Spot which only helped from thigns getting worse. Nothing would make it go away completely. Last week I finally reverted back to Lever 2000 and your regime and my face, within 2 days, was back to it's normal healthy self...except for those few acne scars I now have :( Thanks for having this site and giving people a place to talk about this horrible experience called acne.

Just wanted to say that this regimen totally did the trick.
I've been fighting acne for years now, very oily skin, and tried everything in the book. While many of the components of this regimen are certainly things I've tried (benzoyl peroxide, who hasn't heard of it), nobody has ever put it together with as much care as Daniel - the cleanser, the treatment, the moisturizer; they are all so perfectly balanced and precisely configured that, the closer you follow his regimen, the better results you will see. Seriously. Never before have I seen one man make so much of a difference for so many people's skin.

I have struggled with Back Acne since I was 17 (now 33!). Having tried Oxytetracycline - this worked only while on it constantly the doctor then prescribed the 'Pill' Dianette. This worked fine and cleared the Acne up. However when I was 23 I had severe depression (not related to the acne!) and decided to come off the pill. Since then the back acne returned and at times of stress got worse. I finally got fed up of not being able to wear sleeveless tops, vest tops, go swimming etc because I was embarrassed of the Acne on my back. I did some research of my own for Acne treatments and came across your website. I started off just using BP Gel and saw a marked improvement very quickly, the drying of the skin passed in about a week. I am now 6 months in and although my skin was much better it hadn't completely cleared. So I decided to try and find some 10% Glycolic Acid lotion here in the UK. I managed to find some from Pharmagel and after a week of using this as well as then BP my back is 99.9% clear and the skin tone and scarring is improving. Who knows you may yet see me in a vest top this summer!!!
I can't thank you enough. This method takes time but I am certainly happier doing this than messing about with my hormones long term.

I had moderate acne on my chest and back for 3 years, I sweat alot at my job. I've tried antibiotics but your regimen works two times better and is less than twice the price of my perscription. I stopped using antibiotics and have clear skin. Lots of benzoyl peroxide and lots of moisturizer works very well.
I will spread the word about your website and the regimen.
I know you've read this hundreds of times, but still I want to say thank you for sharing the regimen!
I started having acne when I was 11, tried all possible treatments here in France, but only got rid of it this year, following the regimen (I'm 24)!
Just before I discovered your website, I was thinking maybe I should just get used to acne but now, I can't believe my skin is soft and clear.
I feel more confident and no longer need to put layers of foundation on :D
So I decided to spread the word around me, and show your website to people who need help with acne, and I hope more and more acne sufferers will get to know it!
Again, thank you so much Dan for saving many peoples' lives!
And sorry for my bad English :(

Hey I had acne when I was in 2nd grade.
My mom and dad were looking for all types of treatments but we couldn’t find any. In 6th grade I still had acne. My mom looked up how to treat acne and she found this page. She told me about it and we started to use it. I didn’t usually use the acne medicine everyday until the summer of 7th grade which is this summer. This summer my acne is gone.
I just wanted to say thanks for the help. So Thanks :)
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.
