Week 15: I Dare To Say The Regimen Is Working Out~

I think it's been about 2 weeks as I promised to update about how I'm doing so far (see pics below). I think The Regimen (Daniel Kern's) is working (the 2nd time around, that is---read my first post about this whole "2nd time around" process). What do you think? Most of what I see in the mirror is hyperpigmentation; sadly, I believe it's going to be a long while until most of that discoloration heals/fades. I do have some breakouts still happening on my jawline and cheeks, but nothing curr

Why I Started Again (And Why I Quit)

Hi there! I went off The Regimen in January of this year (2013) to give a particular natural skincare site out there a try. I was experiencing dryness and redness with the regimen after having had excellent success with it starting back in 2009---I mean, we're talking *excellent*. The Regimen cleared me up by about 99% (as you can see in that photo I posted; no make-up; just a little eyeliner!) and only less when/if I was not religious about doing it properly. I have had cystic acne since I

8 Month Update: Totally Clear

Well, it's been eight very slow-going and difficult months since (re)starting the DKR after foolishly going off of it and having the Worst Cystic Acne of my Life. Please look at the top two pics above of my progress---the discoloration is just hyperpigmentation that I'm "working" on through the use of Dan's AHA lotion and Tamanu Oil...but other than that, I have no breakouts. I get maybe a tiny one here and there but never cystic. Sadly, I have some ugly rolling scars, as you can see, most

Week 17: Ecstatically Clearing~

Well, it's been about 2 weeks or so since my last update on the Daniel Kern Regimen aka, "Acne.org Regimen". My skin's really taken a whole new turn since that last post, wow. I am ecstatic to say that my skin continues to heal, albeit slowly. The cystic acne was pretty damaging, and so I not only had to be extra patient but also be careful in order to reduce actual textual scarring. What you see in the pics below is all hyper-pigmentation, aka, post-inflammatory acne marks. Wow, it looks so ba

10 Month Update: Still Clear And Reduced Scarring

Hi there! I must say that I'm pretty pleased since even my last update (2 months ago); I'm trying to keep this blog going for at least a year or more so that we can discover together how well The Regimen worked for me, but also how well I can do to reduce my actual scarring (not the hyperpigmentation...that's fading nicely...) As you can see in my attached photos here, I'm just doing better and better! As I said in my last post or two, I rarely break out, and if so, only tiny ones that

Week 8 Was All About The Dryness And Breaking Out And...questioning Myself

This week was really rough---no pun intended, lol. As you can see, not what I'd call "better". But my skin was starting to just feel better, if that makes sense. Perhaps you have been following me since I started this blog to go through Round 2 of The Regimen since going off it in January of this year. So I'm technically on week 13 now and backblogging my progress for you---and I promise, things get better! Dan has a "what to expect" section on his main Regimen page with approximations of how

Week 10 On Dkr: More Breaking Out (But Lessening) And Drydry Dry

Sitting here, looking at these photos from 3 weeks ago, it's hard to believe how fast things have already gotten better. But man, do I look awful in these photos! I specifically recall how painful my jawline felt; it was like I broke out with the last breakouts in full force. Since then (since I am now on week 13 and back-blogging things for you) my jawline has been clearing up. But overall, the breakouts were simply more concentrated areas, but smaller/less painful cysts, and certainly not laye

Where I Was At With The Regimen (2Nd Time Around) ~Wk6

There is a part of me that is absolutely horrified that I'm blogging about this *with pictures*, lol. However, I'm a really open person, so I really wanted to share this journey because I understand the struggle for clear skin and how it makes a person feel to not achieve it---let alone wonder if what they're currently using is actually working. I need the support and ideas and feedback just like anyone walking around wondering, "is this even working? am I just telling myself that it is? do I

Week 13: All Breakouts Healing, Flakiness Under Control

Jeez, from the looks of these photos, you wouldn't think things have gotten any better, but they have. All of the breakouts you see here are actually old ones taking forever and a day to heal, sadly, or the breakouts I got last week (week 12). So far this week, though, no new breakouts. Perhaps I've finally crossed the threshhold that Dan discusses, in which you cycle for a while through breakouts, heal a bit, breakout more, and then finally start truly healing breakout free. Also, the breakou

6 Month Update (Pleased But It Was Slowgoing)

I just wanted to give you all my 6 month update....I know, that's a long time to be on The Regimen, hoping it works. Well, I think I can comfortably say that it did. I still get a couple of little breakouts here and there, but overall, it cleared my skin. What you are seeing in these pictures is all hyperpigmentation and scarring. I have to be honest and say that while I'm ecstatic about how my skin is pretty much clear now, the scarring and post-acne red marks (that apparently always fade but c
