This is totally expected and normal. It'll pass. Don't forget to Moisturize!! To reduce the flakes, maybe you can massage your face with jojoba oil for 5 min before you wash your wash. Do not wash the oil off before you use the cleanser.

I'm glad the regiment is working for you at getting rid of your acne! 
To answer your question, I would highly recommend you to continue with the regiment. If you stop, all your progress may be lost and all of your acne and pimples would return. Continue using the regiment as it will prevent future outbreaks! Also, remember to moisturize!

Hi ValidCherub, 

Our best advice is that you continue using the Acne.org Regimen products to keep you perfectly clear. Once you are 100% clear of  acne, you may stop using the Acne.org Treatment and see if you will remain clear. If you do have breakouts, you may continue using The Acne.org Regimen until you have naturally outgrown your acne. You can stop every few months to see if you no longer have break outs.

Some people do stop using the Treatment after they are clear and use the Acne.org AHA+ instead. However, different skin have different needs so it's up to your skin if you can get away with the AHA+ once you are perfectly clear. 

Dryness and irritation is to be expected during the first few weeks of The Acne.org Regimen. Make sure that you follow directions precisely as outlined and you do not use any other products in conjunction with The Acne.org Regimen. 

Use two full pumps of the Moisturizer and you may also add in 5-6 drop of Jojoba Oil. This can really take care of the dryness and flakiness on your skin. 

Good luck and if there's anything else that you need, let us know. We're here to help.

Thank you so much
i stop using BP but continuously using the cleanser and moisturizer because my skill is still dry and a bit peeling. In the evening, i also use AHA+. Is it ok if I use the sun cream in the morning before I apply the moisturizer? 
Moreover. I stopped using BP for almost 1 week, but I read a lot of topics which said that i might breakout when I use AHA+. So should I use BP if that happens.

Hi ValidCherub, 

There is no need to use any other products in conjunction with the Acne.org Regimen as it is unnecessary and it may negatively affect your results. 

If your skin could not tolerate the Acne.org Treatment, stop completely and allow your skin to heal then start once again with only a pea sized amount of the Treatment during the first week ans use it twice a day the following week. Gradually increase the dose of the Treatment until your skin can fully adjust to the product. Remember, the slower, the better. If you start too fast with the Acne.org Treatment, it may over dry your skin. However, using two full pumps of the Moisturizer or mixing it with Jojoba Oil can take care of the dryness. 

If you are one month into The Acne.org Regimen, your skin should be able to adjust to the AHA+ after a few applications. However, if you are only a few days into The Acne.org Regimen, we would advise that you wait until 4 weeks into the Treatment before you start using the AHA+. 

You may start off by mixing 50% of the AHA+ and 50% Acne.org Moisturizer and apply the mixture every night. You may also start with a small amount of AHA+ and apply it every 2-3 nights and gradually ramp up the volume until your skin is well adjusted to the product.

Since there is no active acne, you can incorporate a scrub to get rid of those flakes.


Hi CP., 

Although scrubbing is a good idea to exfoliate clear skin, it may not be advisable for those with sensitive, acne prone skin. For more information on irritation and scrubbing, kindly visit Dan's blog by using the link http://www.acne.org/blog/2014/05/13/irritation-acne-weve-always-known-research-trickling/

Hi Cp, 

Noted. However, different skins have different reactions. If facial scrubs has no effect on you, you may certainly keep on using it but it's best if we treat the skin who are new to The Acne.org Regimen as gentle as possible to avoid any further irritation. Have a nice day.

Yes, I agree with this. New is the keyword.
-
If someone has a layer of dead skin cells on the surface, the BP doesn't penetrate completely. At first it's a predicament. Until the skin is clear, a person shouldn't use a scrub. But once he is ready for one, he can use it. I've been on the Regimen since 2013, and if I don't use a scrub, the BP doesn't absorb as well because of the dead skin cells. If flakiness isn't as big of a problem for someone as it is for me, a scrub isn't necessary.
