I am a mother of a 15 yr old girl that has bouts of mild/moderate acne. She has been going to a dermatologist since she was 12. She is currently on oral antibiotics (bactrim) and uses topicals Clindamycin and Klaron. This combo seems to work pretty well, but just recently she has been fighting breakouts. We started your regimen and cannot be more pleased!! It has been a week, we have started out slowly with the BP due to her sensitive skin, but this has help her so much! I cannot believe the difference already. I am hoping this will help to curb the breakouts she gets during the month. I will keep you posted on the progress. Thanks so much for this!
I just have to thank you. My acne was so bad that I could not touch my face without it hurting. I have tried accutane, tetracycline, harsh face washes, voodoo... Anyway, your regimen worked. Not only is my acne virtually gone, but my skin isn't scaly and gross. I'm smooth and soft! Thanks!

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 recently broke out bad around my jawline and throat area. I've broken out in the past but this time, it was pretty bad. When I say bad, I'm talking about what you termed 'severe acne'. I just couldn't figure what I had done to trigger this breakout. At 36, I thought I'd passed that 'acne phase'. I guess there's no such thing. I have to say that my confidence took a big hit. I tried just about everything, short of accutane. I even tried that blue light therapy at the dermatologist's office. For those who are contemplating this therapy: DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
So I came across your site three months ago. I, like others who have posted their success stories on your site, was highly skeptical. I mean, I'd tried just about everything already and the results had been extremely discouraging. Then I realized I had nothing to lose, other than the acne itself. After the first month, I saw minimal gains. For encouragement, I would read the success stories of other people. Then the second month came and passed. I began to see noticeable changes. Again, I kept reading the success stories for encouragement. Now it's reached the end of the third month and the results have been dramatic. My face is clear now. It's just amazing.
To any acne sufferer who happens to read this. The moral of my story is to not give up and give the regimen time to work. It is very easy to get frustrated and give up on it. Believe me, I was there. DO NOT GIVE UP, NO MATTER WHAT!!! Follow the regimen exactly as it is described. The combination that seemed to work for me is the Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar, Clear Skin Regimen Gel and Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer. Other than the Clear Skin Regimen Gel, you can get the other products at Drugstore.com
Dan, I cannot thank you enough for what you and your site has done for me. You are THE MAN. Take care and continue to do the good that you do. God bless...

Dan & his staff,
I've been using The Regimen for over a year, and I truly believe that it is THE best acne product out there.
I've been suffering from acne for five plus years before I started using The Regimen. I tried everything from Proactive to expensive facials.
I used acne.org regimen for about 3 weeks and MIRACLES! I introduced this product to my brother about a month after I started using it, and I can honestly say that all his acne went away. His skin was horrible and he went through a lot of emotional stress due to his acne. He went through psychologists and dermatologists weekly, but nothing worked. After 2 weeks of using The Regimen, he stopped all treatment and medication. Now, I'm his favorite sister! He lives abroad so I get it shipped to my house and then I ship it out.
Dan, I will never ever stop your products! Thank you for giving me confidence, and more importantly, thank you for making my brother happy and healthy.
I'm not sure how I stumbled upon your website, but man I am glad I did. I've always struggled with facial acne, although it was never that bad, but it was my back acne that had me fearing the beaches. I was on every prescription imaginable, with nothing ever helping. After a few weeks on the regimen, my face had cleared up, but my back was still as it was. Looking at your website, it said to keep using the regimen even though it may not seem to work at the start, so I did. I am now on my second set of the regimen, and my back has nearly completely cleared up. I still have considerable scarring, but I am ecstatic that I no longer have to be in pain with a bookbag on, and can squat in the weight room with no additional annoyance (besides the weights that is :)). I can't express my exuberance enough.
This summer... I can't wait to hit the beaches!
I was skeptical to try "the regimen" at first. Within the 2nd week my face was so dry I had to resort to using it only once a day and heavily moisturizing (on my already oily skin-type). It took about a month and a half to get completely clear, my face has adapted to the BP. I look so much better and even my red spots from previous ache has gone away!

I have a feeling that this success story would only sound like all the others if I said how I had tried everything I could afford, was very skeptical about BP possibly being that elusive "acne cure", and really, really hated my complexion. But that's all true.
I've been on the Regimen for 10 weeks, but have only being doing it as required -- morning and night, every day -- for about 4 weeks. My face has only 1 or 2 pimples as I am typing this, and the red marks are fading so fast, thanks to your recommendation of 10% AHA. I can't believe what that stuff does for the complexion! :)
I have hormonal acne, and I'm 18 years old, so the thought of spending the next approximately 4 years still combating acne was completely miserable. It already took a lot away from my teen years up to just just recently, when I learned to "grin and bear it."
I decided to try your regimen and stick with it, in spite of the predicted (and fulfilled!) temporary discomfort. I did have moments after the first 3, and then 6, and then 8 weeks, thinking that it would never REALLY clear me up. But it is!
I can't thank you enough, or tell you how much your generosity is appreciated in sharing with us what most other people only use to lead you on and get as much out of it for themselves as they can. I'll use the Dan Kern regimen until the very last day that my hormones are producing acne, and it will be what I recommend to everyone I know who is suffering the same way!! Thank-you again.

I've had horrible acne for a few years before I finally found this website and tried Dan's awesome Regimen. Gosh, talking about trying many products, I've tried Proactiv, doctors' prescriptions, Dermetologist's suggestions, mom's secret traditional medicine (thank god it's over), and even over the table medicine and other CVS' products... Sadly, none of them worked or stayed working for a long time. However, I unfortunately found this website out and after reading all the materials on it, i've decided to actually give it a try. I also have to mention that one of the biggest reason that helped me decide whether to try Dan's Regimen is the site's community. I reckon, "If it worked for most people here, it might actually work for me". Turns out it did, and right now, pimples are the last thing i worry about bout!

Dearest, wonderful Dan,
I've never written to anyone before about their product - good or bad. But I had to do it this time.
I have a 16 year old son, whose acne in the last 3 years was getting so bad; it was affecting every aspect of his life, and really getting him down. We tried prescription creams and antibiotics, but they didn't work. We were finally going to try Accutane as the last resort, when I came upon your website. What luck! And thank god I decided to give it a try!
I don't want to write too much, because I want to make sure everyone reads this and that it helps other kids out there whose lives are miserable because of acne.
Well, the main reason I decided to try your program was because I could see that it wasn't a money making scheme since your were not pushing any particular product. Anyway, I looked for the BP and I found a 5% one and bought it. This was a mistake. It made my son's face super red and dry and flaky, and after a few weeks of this, we stopped completely for a couple of weeks. Then I started him again on a 2.5% BP. Well, it didn't take too long to show results, and this time without any of the harsh effects of the 5%! It was fantastic. It was only when I was sure that the treatment worked that I decide to buy the product from you, since it comes in larger quantities. And now (after 2.5 months on the program) he’s also started on your AHA for his chest acne and for the red marks left behind from the old acne. And this seems to be working very well too.
I wish I had taken good close-up pictures of his face before he started, so everyone could see the difference.
I just had to thank you, Dan. I hope you realize how much good you're doing. I know it sounds melodramatic, but I think a lot of people reading this understand what I mean. You are truly wonderful for doing this.
Thank you again,
