Ive been on the regimen for about 2 months and have had a successful experience. i dont have any more pimples and my red marks are fading. In about a month i am going to boot camp for the Navy! they will not let me bring any acne products but will allow me to bring 2 bars of soap!

I was wondering if i bring my face soap(basis), will i still break out even if i will not be able to use BP? i know that BP gel is the most important part of the regimen, but will my pimples come back even if i properly wash my face daily?

Im looking foward to starting a new chapter in my life but im not looking foward to starting the regimen all over after!

I hate to tell you. But there is a great chance your acne will come back when BP use is stopped. Dan has said many times that when he has quit using BP his acne comes back.

The only thing that kills p.acnes is BP. all soap does is clean dirt off your face and some dead skin.

Wow, what a situation to be in. I hate to say it, but unless you have outgrown your tendency to get acne, there is a good chance it will return.

Is the ban on bringing acne products only during boot camp? If so, then I suppose you can endure those 8 weeks, then restart up the regimen when you are done with boot camp. Otherwise, someone else mentioned sneaking in some bp, but if you are caught you might get into some trouble, I hear boot camp can be very strict.

Whenever boot camp is over, they should let you use whatever personal hygiene products you want, I would think, you can restart the Regimen then.

What about getting that PanOxyl bar? it contains BP and it comes in a bar form. I haven't used this but ive read some really good reviews. I think it comes in 5% and 10% BP.
