First I want to say that your site has helped me so much in the past few months!!! It's very informative and does push any specific agenda, rather it offers practical solutions through the testament of others. I found your site when I was searching for reviews on a certain product, that product dried out my skin and made my acne worse. I started off with moderate acne characterized by a few pustules (4 or 5 at a time), maybe one cystic nodule, plenty of scarring from picking at my acne, and oily but dry feeling skin. You can imagine that I was not happy. After a few more trial and errors with 'miracle acne cures', I decided to try your regimen.
I must admit that when trying a new acne product, I get anxious... I constantly check the condition of my skin and get antsy if I don't see improvement in 2 weeks. I know you said your regimen takes time, but I noticed a drastic improvement in less than a week. My skin didn't completely clear, but the progress I made in that short time encouraged me to stick with it. I found the products that work wonders on my skin, surprisingly most of these products are formulated for sensitive skin. The urge to dry your face out when treating acne is something that should be avoided, and your regimen taught me that. As soon as I stopped trying to strip my skin, I noticed smoother less oily, even toned skin. I tweak your regimen a bit, but nonetheless, it has been your advice that has taught me how to care for my skin. Now, 8 weeks later, I no longer get cystic nodules, and I get an occasional pimple but never more than 2 at a time, and they go way quick. My scarring has almost disappeared completely, which is no small feat because I am African- American and we have a tendency to scar easily (due to the melanin content in our skin, it causes hyper-pigmentation). My skin is now free of blemishes and pimples, even toned, and my complexion is completely smooth and never oily!!!
I just wanted to thank you for creating ance.org and for making your regimen available for free. Whenever someone compliments on my skin I refer them to your site and regimen. Sorry this was so long, but I just had to let you know how much you've helped my on my journey to clear skin.
Thank you so much!!!

OVerall Dan's regimen really works like no other!! after only 2 weeks I noticed that I was already 85%clear!!
lots and lots of BP+ moisturizer= CLEAR SKIN!! BELIEVE IT. I was skeptical but now I am a believer! If only I knew this in my teen years! but better now than never huh?
Again THANKS DAN!!
I just wanted to thank you for sharing your regimen with the world. I inherited terrible skin from both of my parents. I have used every possible prescription acne medicine except for accutane, but nothing was effective for very long, and I have suffered from moderate-to-severe acne for many years. I started using your regimen, and after 3 months my skin is completely clear. I can't even remember when it last looked so good. I feel confident and pretty. Thank you so much, and keep up the good work.
Dear Dan and Acne.org,
I've had severe acne for about six years. I am nineteen, and I've had acne scars all over my face. I went to a dermatologist now and then. A dermatologist would do some scaling and pop my acnes, which would temporarily make my skin clear. However, after a couple of weeks, I would always get acne back.
Having followed your regimen using your product for a couple of months now, my face is actually clear. I have almost no acne and acne scars.
What I really liked about this place is that you clearly outlined the problem and the solution in a reasonable manner. Without it, I probably would not have followed the regimen.
thank you dan,
thanks to you I now have clear skin.

Hi Dan, I e-mailed you about 2 months ago saying that I was about 50% clear from being on the Regimen for 1 month. I am pretty much clear now =) And I feel wonderful thanks to you. I am also currently experiencing huge amounts of stress from school, which leads me to believe that stress doesn't affect my acne... I just took a look at the new site, it looks great! Glad that you've maintained a simple design; it makes it friendly and unintimidating. You are wonderful, thank you again!

I am 25 yrs old and have been struggling with acne since I was about 12. I remember it ruining pictures and my self confidence. I've tried over the counter products and even wasted my money on ProActive, which worked for a while and then stopped all together. I came across Dan's Regimen while surfing the net. I looked at the list of products from acne.org but also the list of products sold in stores that are easily accessible. I went to Walgreens, purchased a simple cleanser, benzoyl peroxide and a moisturizer. For the first week or so, my skin was red, itchy and a bit irritated but I read on the website that that was to be expected and if I could just hang on for another few weeks, that would all go away. I stuck to it....it wasn't all pretty, and after about 3-4 weeks, my skin began to clear up. My skin looked awesome & everyone began to take notice. I've been using the products for about 1 1/2 months and my skin still looks great. No new acne and my skin looks fresher and healthier. I will never ever use anything else.

Words cannot express my appreciation for the 2.5% bp gel...it has changed my life! Growing up I was fortunate to have nice skin, even during my teen years. When I turned 21 I started having acne for the first time in my life. For 2 years I tried everything...changing my make up, specialty creams, Rx treatments, etc. I have pale sensitive skin...and when I say sensitive I mean SEN-SI-TIVE! Even the stuff made for reactive skin like mine broke me out - cetaphil, eucerin, etc. Frustrated and lacking the confidence I once had I finally decided to look for alternate treatments. During my research I came across acne.org and was intrigued by the 2.5% bp gel. I had tried zap zyt which was too hard, neutrogena on the spot which did nothing etc., so I was skeptical. Desperate with no where else to turn I took the plunge. My item arrived quickly and there was tons of product. I begain the regimen on a Saturday and by Thursday my skin was perfect...I mean 100% clear. I only have a few r!
ed spots that need to fade. The best thing is that my skin is soooo soft! I was worried I would have drying problems but did not (and I even have dry skin.) I cleanse with purpose in the am, use the bp, then purpose moisturizer with spf. At night I cleans again, apply the bp, and then complex 15 cream. My husband commented that my skin looked great and that I was glowing! I feel happy about my apperance for the 1st time in 2 years...I have soft, clear, radiant skin. I want the world to know about this amazing product...PLEASE NEVER EVER EVER STOP MAKING IT!

I got the cleanser, treatment, moisturizer, jojoba oil, and AHA+. I've been washing my face once a day for about 10 seconds or so with 1.5 to 2 pumps of the cleanser when I shower. I wait until my face feels dry and then I smooth on 1.5 to 2 pumps of the treatment. I wait until my face is dry again and then I smooth on 1.5 to 2 pumps of the moisturizer along with 7 drops of the jojoba oil. The moisturizer/jojoba oil doesn't soak all the way in right away even after smoothing it for awhile, but by the time I go to work, it soaks all the way in. I noticed that my face is not as dry since I've been doing this regimen. I also very rarely get any pimples now, not even on the sides of my cheeks, which is where I usually get the "underground" painful ones that get out of control. I tried using that AHA+ when I got a pimple on my chin and it was much smaller the very next day. It was completely gone by the day after that and I only used it twice!
Anyway, I thought my results were too cool not to share with you. I really like that jojoba oil. It rinses off of your hands so much easier than olive oil.
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. :)

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!!!
