    When in doubt, put AHA+ on it!

  1. josh, For me, my chin is one of my most sensitive spots, along with the corners of my nose. I was getting flakes there consistently until I switched to Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. It completely solved my dryness. However, if I do see a few flakies there, (like after I eat or chew gum) I will often reapply the Cetaphil just to my chin at around midday. Using moisturizer three times a day is perfectly fine. About the AHA+, yeah it may seem like it causes more flakes. I thought the same thing wh
  2. In my personal opinion, y'all are making way too big a deal out of this. Bleaching clothes is not that difficult to avoid. All you have to do is dress before you apply BP, and consciously avoid touching your face (you should be doing this already). I live in Georgia, and I sweat a lot so I can relate to heat. I also wear pretty nice clothes to college, but I never have any problems with bleaching. All you have to do is be aware of your hands.
  3. MORNING: 1) Shave in shower with three pumps of Dan's Cleanser, then cleanse other areas with one pump. 2) Gently pat dry with a pristine towel. 3) Get dressed and make up my bed (about ten minutes). 4) Apply one pump of Dan's BP on my cheeks/chin/upper lip and about a 1/2 pump on my forehead. 5) Study the Bible (about fifteen minutes) 6) Apply one pump of Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. 7) If it's going to be sunny, I put on a very thin layer of Olay Complete SPF 15 (zinc oxide version). EVENING
  4. I know this may not be much of the answer you're looking for, but there is no way in the world that I would put that stuff on my face. Lanolin is one of biggest culprits behind clogged pores. Plus, fragrance only means one thing...irritation. If you feel like you absolutely must use it, please don't slather it over you entire face. Just try it on a portion for a couple of weeks and see what happens. However, if it were me, I would be sending that stuff back and going to find some 100% organic jo
  5. It's hard to say whether acne will form or not. If it does, it could possibly take a couple of weeks or even a month to surface. It depends on how much you irritated your skin. Hopefully, the BP you are using will prevent the acne from even forming, but I would not recommend using any more than usual because that could just add to your irritation. All you can do now is just wait and pray. And be more careful in the future.
  6. Ideally, you do not need to be using AHA everyday. The combo of AHA and BP in unison is just too much for your skin that often. Your skin may just be overly irritated. Dan recommends about three times per week, and most people believe that spreading out the AHA usage actually makes it work better.
  7. On the contrary, you can absolutely use more than six drops of jojoba and it still be beneficial. The more you use, the better. At night, Dan himself uses twelve drops and I am currently using fifteen. As for moisturizing, it is perfectly fine to moisturize several times throughout the day, if you need to. Just be sure to be gentle.
  8. Yeah, you should definitely listen to Thanh. Starting with too much BP is a serious mistake that a lot of people make. Just because you were on Proactive doesn't mean that your skin is ready for the Regimen BP dosage. It's just different. You should use about 1/2 pump once a day for a week and then 1/2 pump twice a day for a week. Then keep on increasing the BP by a 1/2 pump after every week until you are using two pumps twice a day. It is much more important in the first month to get your skin
  9. Maybe you should try Dan's Sal acid. It is jammed pack with other acne-fighting ingredients and is supposed to be the best. I've never tried it, but all of Dan's other products are extremely high quality so I'm sure his Sal Acid is as well. You can try it here.
  10. Whatever you do, do not stop the Regimen. This may be no comfort to you, but four weeks is really a very, very short time to have been on the Regimen. While many may see results by that point, I think that those who do are a minority. In actuality, acne can take up to three months to form and, if you have been following Dan's guidelines correctly, you should have just recently started using the full amount of BP, thus you have just started using enought BP to kill and prevent acne from forming.
  11. Yes, it does help. The Regimen via benzoyl peroxide can usually be extremely effective at killing and preventing inflamed acne because it oxygenates the skin. However, it does not take care of non-inflamed acne (blackheads, whiteheads) as well. To combat non-inflamed acne, you should use either AHAs or BHAs (sal acid for example) because they exfoliate the skin.
  12. Hydration is absolutely a big reason why the acne would heal faster, but jojoba oil also contains massive amounts of vitamin E, which really helps the skin heal.
  13. I'm in on this for biting nails. Dan's look amazing compared to my own because I bite till it hurts.
  14. I agree with C'est...too many people think that they can skip ahead to the full amount just because they've used BP before. This is a critical mistake. Also, you should not be using AHA until you've been on the Regimen for at least a month. It will only irritate your skin this early and give you more acne. I suggest that you thorougly read through Dan's instructions a few more times before you go any further.
  15. For any new members who may read this post: This is not a reliable cure. Sebum alone does not form acne. Dead skin cells that clog pores, raging hormones and family genetics are the main culprits behind acne. While I do agree that dermatologists would rather have their patients keep returning for treatment, the cotton ball technique is absurd. My friend, how do you explain people who have oily faces and no acne? Or people who have dry faces with acne? The truth is, no one knows how to cure acne
