AS a teenager having terrible acne including, cysts the size of dimes(which would be lanced by a dermatologist) and then the standard whiteheads and blackheads, the dermatologist asked what I was eating. After going through the food inventory he told me to stop eating certain foods with the one item that solved 95% of my acne.....Stay away from Iodine.....
Once I avoided Iodized salt (Mom bought non-iodized salt) stopped eating crackers and anything fried or "externally" salted, my acne went away and has stayed away since.
I can stress enough about the Iodine issue. My children both have it acne bad and once I got them to buy into the iodine thing, and stay away from the heavily salted fast foods and eat more of what we could control of the food at home, their problems also went away in regards to the acne...
I did it all, Minocin, tetracycline, clindamicine, Benzac etc... and it stemmed down to iodine and cleaning.
Today at 46 I am virtually acne free. Wash my face with standard soaps 2-3 times per day depending on sweating activities, and avoid the iodized items as much as possible.
My belief simple is that if people with oily skins wash their faces 2-3 times per day with whatever soap they feel removes oils well and avoids the fried foods with heavy salt and Iodine, their lives will be much happier..

Thanks so much for your advice. I'm in my mid 30's and have struggled with my skin since high school. My acne has never been severe, but it has been regular and annoying enough to be a constant source of irritation (and self-consciousness). Your program works!
I started using the 2.5% Neutrogena On the Spot (just until your product arrived), and it dried my skin. The Eurecin cleanser is good, but their moisturizer is not so good. Once your product arrived, I started using it and replaced the moisturizer with Aveeno Ultra-Calming lotion. Now, no redness, no flaking, and best of all, no acne. Thanks Dan. You are my hero.

I've battled acne since my early teen years, and unfortunately didn't come across this regimen until I was 29. I've tried all kinds of other products, and this is the first thing that really worked. I tried it for about three months without the lotion, because I thought my face could handle the dryness. Of course that didn't work. When I gave in and started following the regimen exactly, it took a few weeks, just like Dan says, but then it started to work great. It's three days until my 30th birthday, and I'm thrilled to be done with my acne, thanks to acne.org.

Thank you thank you thank you!
I stumbled across your site while researching ProActive and other solutions. I've been following your advice for about three weeks and my skin has cleared up tremendously. I can't believe how well it's worked.
I'll spread the word where I can.
Like so many others, I want to share my little story. I've battled acne since I was 11. Kids are cruel, I was made fun of and my self esteem was pretty low. My parents didn't have very good insurance so going to the Dr. wasn't an option for us, raising 3 kids can get expensive! Here I am at 33, although the acne became more mild, it was still always persistant. I finally broke down and went to the Derm about 10 weeks ago and was immediately put on Solodyn and Differin. I grinned and beared it through all of the so called "purging", I was hopeful that this was the answer. 3 weeks ago I ran across your website and after reading pages upon pages of success stories (and still breaking out with the Rxs!), I decided I had absolutely nothing to lose. I purchased your BP gel and some light moisturizer and started the regimen. 2 weeks going strong and what a huge difference this had made! I have 1 pimple, and that is due to the fact that I picked it until kingdom come. Ooops, my mistake! Even that pimple is clearing fast. My skin has a clarity that I'm sure it hasn't had since I was an infant. Seriously. I know there are people just like me out there reading all of these success stories and wondering if they should try the regimen. Absolutely, yes! My only regret is that I didn't find you 10 years ago! Thank you Dan, what you have done and are doing is nothing short of philantropy!
I wanted to say a huge thanks for your website and for sharing your knowledge on an acne treatment that actually works. Being a scientist I was initially skeptical of this regime but did my background research, and decided to try it out after being convinced of its scientific merit.
I have been using your regime for about 2.5 years now and it has changed my life. I had suffered mild to moderate acne in my T-zone area since my late teens and discovered your site after ten years of daily break-outs that seemed to be worsening with age. Now I am essentially acne-free and it feels great!! The first three months were the hardest to get through as my skin was very sensitive to the benzoyl peroxide - but once it 'hardened', I've never looked back. My boyfriend still comments on how great my skin looks and feels compared to my acne days.
Thanks again for making a difference!!
I just submitted a reorder and wanted to let you know how much I love your products. I am in my 30s and have struggled with acne since junior high. I took one round of Accutane in my early 20s, and it worked wonders for my cystic acne. However, my skin went haywire as I neared 30. Then I discovered the Regimen and your products.
Since adopting the Regimen several years ago, my skin looks great. So thank you!

I am a 35 y.o. female who has battled acne all of my life. I just started the regimen and my skin looks the best it has looked in years. I am doing:
Acne.org Cleanser in the shower in the AM
Let skin dry
Apply a thin line of Acne.org AHA
Let Skin Dry
Let Skin Dry
Acne.org Moisturizer with a few drops of Organic Jojoba Oil
I have done everything to clear my skin including antibiotics, Accutane, expensive beauty products, expensive facials and nothing has come close to the success I had with your regimen in the first couple of days.
You are amazing and I am so thrilled to have found this Website. My skin looks younger and clearer than it did a decade ago.
Thank you so much!!!!!!
