    FINAL POST: WEEK 10 First I would like to commend Dan for his geniune interest in sharing his Regimen with others. From my personal experience of strictly following this Regimen for 10 weeks, I would rate it as average. This Regimen does some things OK, other things not OK. I don't believe that there is any "one size fits all" regimen that will work for everyone. My overall acne and complexion looked bad after the 10 weeks, so I'm now off the Regimen. The Regimen I followed was: A.M.: Pur

    WEEK 9 The good news is no new significant active breakouts in areas other than the chin/mouth area. The bad news is still numerous new active pimples on the chin/mouth area this week despite using a lot of BP. This problem area is why I started trying the Regimen in the first place, so the lack of results there has been disappointing. I avoid touching the area...actually, with as much BP as I use, I automatically don't want to touch anywhere on my face because any rub by a finger or touch

    WEEK 8 Week 8 got off to a rough start with my chin/mouth area looking as bad or worse than it has in years. The good news was that the forehead and temple breakouts of Week 7 dried up. Also improving news at the end of Week 8 when most of the chin/mouth area was in the process of drying up with only about 1 new pimple each day (and numerous others in the process of drying up.) Hopefully this improvement at the very end of Week 8 indicates that I'm about to turn the corner and get under cont

    WEEK 7 Another frustrating week with active breakouts--not only in problem areas (chin/mouth) but also on areas that hadn't been a recent problem (forehead and temple.) The forehead and temple breakouts may have been related to recently wearing goggles/headset. One slight modification during the week...my "2 fingers worth" of BP were previously probably not "2 full fingers" worth. Dan's photo at http://acne.org/finger.html shows 1 fingers worth as a very "wavy line" of BP--if you were to str

    WEEK 6 Week 6 got off to a rough start with additional pimples and active red bumps. I was just about ready to conclude that my planned 6-week test of the Regimen didn't work out well. However, after reading here that some people took 3 or 4 months to clear up on the Regimen, I believe that my 1.5 month test is too short. So, this week I stocked up on my supply of Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bars, Neutrogena vanishing 1.5% BP, and Eucerin Renewal lotion. I'm now planning to continue this thr

    WEEK 5 Week 5 of the Regimen showed some improvement versus Week 4. Week 5 had fewer new pimples. The pimples from Week 4 are drying up, but they are leaving noticeable red marks. I try to use some Neutrogena Tinted 2.5% BP as a daytime spot cover-up, but that doesn't help much. Week 5 Regimen (same as Week 4): A.M.: Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar, Neutrogena On-The-Spot Acne Treatment Vanishing 2.5% BP (Two fingers worth), Eucerin Renewal lotion P.M.: Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar, Neutro

    WEEK 4 Week 4 of the Regimen was a bit of a step backwards. More new pimples surfaced in Week 4 than during the first few weeks--mostly on the chin and around the mouth. I've rewatched the videos and have been closely following the Regimen. Hopefully Week 5 will be back on the track of improvement. Overall I am doing better now than immediately prior to the Regimen, but I was hoping that new pimples wouldn't be surfacing at 4 weeks. Week 4 A.M. 1. Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar 2. Neu

    WEEK 3 Not much progress to report for week 3. Still getting some new pimples, but most of those are small and seem to get under control within a few days. A new larger lesion surfaced this weekend...hoping it will go away soon. Overall complexion is still poor with red marks, etc. The good news continues to be that I have fewer active lesions than I did before starting this regimen. The biggest new issue this week is irritation and new red marks on the lower neck. During the regimen, I h

    Weekly Log Week 2 Continued progress during second week. The earlier active lesion areas have dried and improved, although I continued to get a few new pimples during this 2nd week. The new pimples now tend to be small and tend to improve within a few days. (Looking back, the week 1 huge cyst-like lesion may have been due to some brand new large earphone headsets that I was wearing for hours at a time.) The Eucerin Renewal Lotion of Week 2 does seem to apply easier than the Purpose Dual Tr
  10. Weekly Log Background: I'm a guy who has had acne for nearly 30 years--except for a period after a round of Accutane over 10 years ago. My acne has been less severe since the Accutane experience. Recently I was a few weeks into a regimen of Scrubbing/Toner/BP/SalAcid/Moisturizer which seemed to make my face break out more, so now I've just started following Dan's BP regimen (more or less): Week 1 A.M. 1. Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar 2. Neutrogena On-The-Spot Acne Treatment Vanishing 2.
