I'm 21 years old and have suffered with acne on my face since I was about 13. I have tried a million things to cure it. When I was about 17 my parents decided it was time to take me to a dermatologist as it was affecting my daily life and confidence. I was prescribed minosil which had great immediate results with which i was delighted with, it never cleared it fully however it was a major improvement. I was on and off these tablets for about 3 years,the doctor told me i had to stop taking them after every 3 months for 3 months during which time my face would go back to being awfull. then in the 3rd year of taking the tablets they stopped working, my face looked awfull consistantly, this was very upsetting as it had been extremly expensive and now was worth nothing. I felt like we had run out of options.
Thank god my mam didnt and kept looking for a cure, i cannot thank her enough for finding your website . At the start I was extremly doubtfully weather your regimen would work but i was willing to try anything. so i started following the regimen doing EXACTLY what you said to do! The first week was awfull. my face was red sore extremly dry and slightly tight. I had seen on ur page that these were common side effects so i decided to stick it out, a week and a half later i was EXTREMLY glad i did cause i have never before had results as good as this. my skin is close to flawless. and i truely enjoy having my picture taken for the first time in a long time. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this page as it has given my confidence back. when i look in the mirror now its a good feeling a very good feeling, i hope writing this lets people know its worth trying. I only wish I had a photo of my old face so you could see the improvement, unfortunately I was not a fan of photographs when my skin looked bad.

Thank you Dan, because of you and this website my skin is now clear. As in NO PIMPLES (except for a few nose blackheads, but really, what acne sufferer would care about that). Thank you thank you thank you!!!
I am a young woman who has had acne since she was twelve. I know what a toll it takes on your self esteem and confidence. My acne was mild most of my life but became moderate in my early twenties, mainly concentrated in the chin area. I felt unattractive all the time, and I thought about my skin constantly--it genuinely took over my life. Now I hardly think about my skin at all. I don't have to worry about my roommates seeing my face in the morning or about when I can exercise without makeup on without anyone seeing my skin. I don't have to worry about resting my chin in my hand or changing pillowcases every night because now that I'm on the regimen those things don't matter.
I've always wished to be able to feel confident & attractive without makeup on. Now I NEVER WEAR MAKEUP (except on my eyes--no foundation or concealer whatsoever). That saves me time and money, but beyond all these things I really feel so much more free. Some people think acne is just a skin condition, but it isn't--if you have bad acne it takes over your whole life. If affects so many things that you do and think.
I really encourage anyone having doubts right now to go on the regimen. If you're worried about the harshness of BP--that does suck at first. My skin was red and flaky for several weeks. But please don't be put off by that. My only regret in this whole thing is that it took me so long to try the regimen. My skin could have been clear so much sooner.

I can't possibly thank you enough for sharing this regimen. I'm a 32 year old woman and have suffered from acne since being a teenager. I'm embarrassed to say it has caused me to miss social events and even days of work. It is so hard to speak in front of people or to feel confident when you have acne. My mom cut out an article from the Orange County Register a few months ago that talked about your website. I decided to try it, why not? Especially since I had some of the supplies and your BP cream is affordable. II've followed the regimen consistently and am absolutely shocked that my acne is GONE! I've tried EVERYTHING over the years and spent thousands. Now my skin is less oily, soft, smooth, and 0 acne. My husband looks at me all the time and tells me how great I look. I can even wear makeup without a problem, not that I need it as much now! It's also safe to use during pregnancy which is great. You've changed my life and I am so grateful!
God Bless You,
Before i write anything else, i want to say that i've been on the regimen for both body and face for almost three weeks now. I have never seen such a transformation in my skin in such a short period of time. For years I have been faced with ugly, acne covered skin. I used every over the counter product that promised results and saw none. I tried proactiv too, but it only had mild effects on my skin and didn't give me the results I was looking for. Finally I was fed up with my skin, after washing my face one night I looked in the mirror, looked at my proactiv and threw it in the trash...I got online and your site popped up and saved the day! I cannot tell you how greatful I am for you, Dan. (and for your amazing products). I dont think I have ever seen my back or face THIS clear. I'm leaving on vacation with friends for spring break in just a few short days and the fact that i will be able to wear summer clothes and bathing suits with confidence means the world to me. This huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders and I am forever greatful! All I can say is, I'm so thankful I found this site when I did, otherwise I would still be suffereing these embarrassing breakouts durring my beach vacation. The fact that I can look in the mirror without feeling defeated is such an accomplishment! And it is all thanks to you! THANK YOU DAN.

Just wanted to tell you how happy I am to have found this site. I read the entire "get clear" section and have been following your advice for 2 weeks. I have acne under my chin and on my neck, which has been for the last 2 years after giving birth. Prior to that I had teenage acne. No matter what I seem to have used for the recent acne has not worked. I had tried 10% BP, BIG mistake. It was very irritating and caused itching, etc. Salacytic acid(sp?) did nothing.
I am happy to report that after 2 weeks I have seen tremendous results. I only wish I had found your site sooner. It is easy to understand info and very supportive of the emotional side of acne as well.
I also want you to know that I am posting your website on the Beauty Banter community online at QVC.com. It is where mostly women post their finds on beauty and skincare. There has been quite a bit of posts on acne recently, so I will share your site on there.
I know I only started The Regimen three days ago but I can already see a huge difference!!! WOW! I just couldnt believe it. I happened to have a bottle of 2.5% around so I thought I would give it a shot. Before this I had used a washcloth on my face and I would exfoliate until my skin was bright red. I thought it was the only thing that would clean my pores. Not true! Now I wish I would have found this website BEFORE I ordered proactive. It should be at my house in a few days and I am considering sending it right back! I plan on telling ALL of my friend about this cheap and easy system. Keep up the great work. THANK YOU!
Dear Dan, I want to thank you for putting your acne regimin on the Internet. I'm a senior in high school and have had mild to moderate acne since my freshman year. I tried everything. Proactiv, doctor's prescriptions, tons of on the spot treatments and face washes from the stores. You name it, I tried it. Nothing made it budge and some made it worse. I was almost ready to give in and just let it go away with age until I found your website. I started following the regimen and although it took about 3 months to really see results, I stuck with it and it was worth the wait. Its been about 10 months now. I'm not exactly clear and I still have some scars that I'm working on. But the difference is night and day. I don't have perfect complexion but its nothing to be embarassed about like it once was. I have new found confidence, I've gotten compliments from a few people and I feel much better about myself in social situations. Thanks a lot. Your regimen has really changed my life.

Thank you, Dan, for helping me to change my life. For providing the catalyst to help me leave my house every day and actually feel beautiful. After using your Benzoyl Peroxide gel for a few months now I hate to say I've taken for granted not worrying about breakouts anymore, but you've helped to spoil me that much! And now every time I see someone who suffers from acne I want to share your website, a real treasure, with them! And so I felt it was high time to email you and say thank you. I'm sure you've heard it a thousand times, but hopefully you can still appreciate and remember what it was like to suffer from horrible acne and have your life turned around when you discovered a cure, and then was able to pass it on.
My skin is radiant-my blackheads are almost gone and of course those pesky red zits that just never stopped popping up. And although it took me a couple months to figure out the dryness to moisturizer ratio, I have and I'm so pleased.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Hello Dan. I have been on your regimen for about 2 months.
Ive used clearzit, proactive, acne free, etc. Most of the acne medicines that Ive tried didn't work or they stopped working after a short period of time. I would like to thank you for creating acne.org because your acne medicine really works and its easy!
My face is basically acne free and I hardly breakout anymore either
plus the prices are great!

THANKS A LOT!
