Thread for acne term acronyms

Recommended Posts

For some of us a little newer to the boards and the terminologies involved, it can be a little confusing when reading posts and someone mentions that they switched from DKR with BP to CSR and jojoba. There are just tons of other acronyms out there that I still dont get, so maybe someone out there can make a list of what these things are so people looking for a certain treatment, regimen or drug and its effects can have an easier time understanding what theyre reading. :shifty:

Here are a few I can think of off the top of my head:

Regimens or Treatments

BCP- Birth Control Pill

CSR- Clear Skin Regimen, the old name of DKR

DKR- Dan Kern's Regimen, seen at the front page of Acne.org


ACV- Apple Cider Vinegar

AHA- Alpha Hydroxy Acid

BHA- Beta Hydroxy Acid

BP- Benzoyl Peroxide

SA- Salicylic Acid


MMU- Mineral Make Up

Okay, I didn't spend much time on it, but I hope that helps! :D

Why cant people just say that then. People have used that several times and I didnt know what on earth they were talking about. In my opinion isnt some long thing that they are incapable of writing out =/
