Skin At Stand Still, Hellppp!

I've been on the acne.org regimen for about 5 weeks now and I'm getting frustrated. My skin is not doing anything, like a sloth just sitting there. I haven't seen any improvement, but it's not really getting worse either. I feel like I'm doing something wrong but I follow the steps precisely. I use the purpose bar for my cleanser, Dan's treatment BP and neutrogena oil free moisturizer for combination skin. Oh and I just started taking 50 mg of zinc a few days ago. Someone please help enlighten me, I'm desperate!

Let's make sure you are first of all using the full amount of bp. Are you using two full pumps (or one full fat finger length if you have bp in a tube)?

Please also read through the biggest mistakes. http://www.acne.org/biggestmistakes.html

And take this quiz. http://www.acne.org/regimenadvice.php

If you are following it strictly, here is the usual progress timeline. http://www.acne.org/regimen.html#expected-improvements

Hope that helps!

If you've checked everything that Brandy has suggested and are also using the full amount of BP, then perhaps you should try switching products.

When I first started the regimen, I was using pharmacy products including Cetaphil moisurising lotion. It wasnt until I switched to Acne.org products that I really started seeing a huge improvement to my skin, especially using the moisuriser.

I am now clear and sometimes happily use cetaphil moisturiser with no ill effect but I truly think that Dan's products helped me to become clear more successfully compared to store products. (thats just my own opinion though).

Now that you're up to the 5 week mark, you could also try including AHA+ a few times per week and see if that makes a difference? Let us know how you get on.

AyeAye- Since I started using Dan's treatment, my face has gotten wayyy better! When I use up all my other products I may switch to all of Dan's products. And what is the AHA for?
