I've been on the regimen for four months now and my skin still looks really bad. It's still flakey, I still get bad cystic acne breakouts every once in a while, and it just doesn't look good. I use the AHA, I do everything as he says, I also eat well and exercise and drink water. Do I keep on with the regimen? Does it take this long??

Sorry if the Regimen isn't giving you the results you want. Jojoba oil can help with flaking, but as far as getting 100% clear, it's not an exact science and the amount of time needed to get clear can vary widely. Actually you're making good progress! Looks like your skin is more or less in check except a few breakouts and some PIH. Excellent work!! :)

I'd give the process a few more months. If the treatment is no longer keeping up with breakouts and things get progressively worse despite treatment, then I'd see a derm.

That's kind of the way it goes for a lot of people. Breakouts can continue to come and go but hopefully you'll find with continued use that they are less frequent and heal faster when they do happen.
