How closely do I need to follow the steps described on the website?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just ordered Dan's gel and will start using is as soon as I received it. However I am wondering how closel do I need to follow the steps decribed on his website. My concerns are:

1. I am pretty busy in the morning so probably will not have time to wait for 15 minutes between each product

2. I am thinking of using the BP only at night

3. I am thinking of alternating the BP with retin A micro. I have the retin-A and like how it keeps my face soft, so even though it doesn't really keep me acne free I want to keep using it

Do you recommend me deviate from Dan's recommend steps? Will his gel still be effective if I use it differently from what he described?

Thanks for your input

Alot of people face this issue. Basically, you just have to change around your schedule a bit. Not that hard, and surely you would do that for clean skin (I would!!!). In between waiting times, do something else that you need to do in the morning. Eat breakfast, make your bed... etc etc! Also, apply lots of BP at night and make sure it is absorbed gently and WELL into the skin. I do believe you will be ok doing that just at night. Alot of people prefer to do that and they are fine. Good luck!

see it doesnt take long.

coz u dont jus sit there for 15mins lol

u wash right as u wud normally, but with a cleanser that u now know is non-comedogenic..

then wen ur waiting for face to dry (usually 5-10mins)

i get dressed etc

then i apply bp (Takes about 2-3mins)

then i do my hair an brush teeth while im waiting for BP to fully absorb

then i moisturiser (Takes less than a min)

an then im done

it doesnt take 2long really

an i get up a little bit early to do this.

id prefere to get up earlier an have clearer skin

That depends on one thing: do you really want to be clear? Take it from a guy who suffered "moderate" acne for 13 years: THE REGIMEN WORKS WHEN FOLLOWED AS INDICATED ON THIS WEBSITE.

My concerns are:

1. I am pretty busy in the morning so probably will not have time to wait for 15 minutes between each product

If it's possible that you could wake up earlier, that would do. I know your schedules and habits would be affected during the first weeks, but trust me, it's worth it.

2. I am thinking of using the BP only at night

3. I am thinking of alternating the BP with retin A micro. I have the retin-A and like how it keeps my face soft, so even though it doesn't really keep me acne free I want to keep using it

...

You could go on and on with steps you could add in or remove from the regimen. Again, it should be followed as outlined here. Other steps can be added or removed once you've been steadily clear for some time. But the general suggestion is that you follow the three steps of the regimen religiously at least for 3 months.

I haven't used Dan's gel but I've read great reviews about it and most people agree that it works great. There are galleries here that prove it as well.

So, if you could give yourself that chance, do the regimen as outlined. You won't regret it. :)
