A word on Shaving!

-------------------------MEN ARE TO SHAVE EVERY OTHER DAY-------------------------

Be sure to shave IN the shower with a mirror and use as little pressure as possible!

MEN!--do one stroke shaving, Confidently, and WITH the flow of hair!

This should be done first thing in shower before cleansing skin/hair!

--------------------------WHAT ABOUT THE VITAMIN E OIL?----------------------------

It was found between 6 Men and 4 Women that Application of small dabs of Pure oil Directly onto Healing lesions, reduced redness faster when in combo with this regimen.

Feel free to apply small dabs of Pure Vitamin E Oil DIRECTLY onto old Lesions and allow time to absorb. If this is to oily for you, Blot off after 20-30 mins and you can still reap some benefit from the Vitamin E oil. Use 1-2 times daily morning and night!=====================================================

I hope you all can use this to your advantage as it is mainly for people who need an alternative to the regimen, or just want clearer skin than the original Regimen has to offer.

Sorry, I was just editing the post. EACH OUNCE CONTAINS 28.5 grams. Okay?

This regimen will blast away the Clarity you can achieve with the original Regimen, as it tackles the problem in a gentle way on all 3 fronts.GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE.!!

You said this was tested on 6 men and 4 women with cystic acne, but you never mentioned WHAT was the outcome. Are there any before and after pictures we could see?

It looks like Dan's regimen to me.

You use the bar (ok, its sulphur, so what), you use 2.5% bp, you use moisturizer with GA.

The only thing that seems to be different is the cortisone cream. (Haven't heard about this part?)

Are the cortisones against the cysts or what?? Or is that against inflammation???

Anyway, you claim to be such an expert, what do you think about retinoids???? I'm using differin now (togheter with a lactic acid wash with zinc in it). Followed by aloe vera. Its only a night regimen, but i'm getting decent results.

What do you think would be best against superficial acne? I get these little whiteheads, bp doesnt seem to help so i've started with differin, although i heard that tazorac is a little better (and more harsh to the skin).

Advantage of retinoids: works against inflammation, thins out upper layer of skin, less sebum production (thats what they claim), and it cleans out the pores (the vit A-acid eats the plugs).

LOL..Somehopeleft is a trip nd i understand wanting to keep it simple. My regimen is for people who want to AVOID accutane though. It is really a last resort regimen for those with moderate---->severe acne. The hydrocortisone is the Anti-inflammatory and will help to restore a more even skin tone and reduce Cystic activity. At the same time it synergistically works with the BP and GA for an overall effect. This was carefully planned for nd seems to be VERY effective. It requires more work though than Dan's regimen, but will have a more lasting effect. So far all subjects who cleared are still clear 6 weeks after the 12 week Trial phase. That's not too shabby eh? I have nothing to gain from this except that I want to see and hear stories about my regimen helping others..

Lemme tell you what regimen my doc has me on now.....

Differin at night, Topical clindamycin in morning. I take oral Doxycycline 2 times a day 100mg. I wash with Sodium Sulfacetamide/Sulphur 5%--PLEXION cleanser.

Crazy huh? I thought so to and wanted to mimic this effet the best i could because I was so amazed at the results. Not everyone has 200 dollars a month (With Insurance) to pay for these Meds though. So i wated something that would be as close to this effect as possible. (minus the oral anti of course). What I created works Synergistically and needs to be followed to a tee. It has been tested at lower levels and higher as well. What was found is that optimum results were achieved at the prescribed levels above. I amm almost finished with my RX regimen and will be saving 200$ a month and going on my own creation in about one week. I look forward to it.
