    New Kind Of Acne

    I have eliminated Cetaphil and it has reduced the chin acne and clogged pores. Just rinsing and using a wash cloth in the shower in the morning seems to be better. I also suspect the clearasil pads are helping to clear up the lingering acne. Will plan on using Dans AHA when I run out of the pads. I also realize that I have to cleanse EVERY night or I am guaranteed a pimple in the morning. Nice to have been able to successfully trouble shoot. Hope this helps others.
  2. I have been very happy with the regimen since I started it this February until the last 2 months. I no longer have cystic acne and hard nodules that scar and never go away on my cheeks. However, I have been increasing having issues around my chin. There seems to be blocked pores that form and create bumps--I guess more like traditional acne. But there is no head. Occassionally they become blackheads but alot of them just stay raised. If I squeeze, I get white ooze. I am guessing they are clogge
  3. I have changed my regime slightly (see signature line) and just use one pump of Dans BP in the morning and none at night. I don't notice any change wrt to acne (still 99.9% clear) but I do have far less drying/wrinkly appearance. Also, the heavy moisturizing at night seems to combat the drying and peeling perfectly. In fact, my skin seems far less dry than ever. I don't even need to put moisturizer on right away after washing. No tightness or ashiness. I don't really even have major issues

    Tips On Traveling With The Regimen?

    I made the mistake of not packing Dans BP on 2 separate occassions because I didn't want to check my luggage. Big mistake. I started breaking out by Day 2. So I bought a travel size for my next trip. You could also buy a Goo Tube and fill it with products from your big bottle. But definitely pack some!

    Benzoyl Peroxide Causing Wrinkles

    Acne And Dry Skin

    So I have been using Dans BP for over 4 months and my cystic acne is gone. I still get an occassional pimple-maybe 3-4 per month but they erupt and clear up in a few days. I get them usually if I get lazy and don't do the routine every.single. night. I went out of town for 3 days and couldn't pack my tube of BP in my bag so I came back with 2 pimples. I am going to order a travel size right now. I have managed the flakiness by mixing in amlactin with Dans lotion at night. I do use a wash rag

    Just Started The Regimen

    I found success with my cystic acne only by using Dan's BP. The texture seems to make it easier to apply and absorb. I occassionally use the cleanser--I prefer cetaphil for most cleansing since I have dry skin. And I mix his face cream with LacHydrin for night time only. I use cerave with sunscreen in the morning. My point is that you may want to try Dan's BP if the over the counter stuff doesn't work for you.
  9. I have exfoliated with jojoba and baking soda after cleansing a few nights a week when there is alot of dryness and flaking. Then the BP. It seems to work for me. I used to see a derm who recommended I moisturize before applying my retinoids because of my excessively dry skin. He said the molecules of the retinoids would pass through the moisturizer. Don't use retinoids anymore --just Dan's amazing BP. I wonder if BP molecules do the same thing.
  10. I have tried exfoliating with jojoba and baking soda before applying BP when I notice excessive flaking and drying. It has helped.

    Benzoyl Peroxide Causing Wrinkles

    Yep it is dehydration. I happen to also be developing wrinkles as I am almost 40 but they definitely appear more since I started Dan's Regimen (which has been fantastic otherwise). Douse your skin with moisturizer and let it soak in for 10 min.

    Question About The Bp Treatment

    Really stear clear of your eye area because it can really dry that out and make it look wrinkled.
  13. Wow. My skin looks way better than it has in the past 10 years. I have 2 blemishes that appeared in time for my menstrual cycle but one is already clearing up and the other is just emerging and I expect it to go away with some BP. I think they appeared because I skipped on night of the regimen--it was my birthday and i got lazy. I don't have the hard cysts on my cheeck that would last forever, as I used to. The scarring is slowly minimizing and the flakiness is not as bad since I have been doin
  14. So far, I have eliminated all my cysts and nodules. I started the Regimen during the worst outbreak I have had in months. I had a massive, pus filled cyst deep under the skin with multiple heads--gross. In 2 days, it was gone. I am still shocked and proceeding cautiously before celebrating. I had my acne improve after going on retinoids only to have the cysts return so I am holding my breath. But there is no sign on new cysts. There are have been a few pimples but they have cleared up quickly. I
  15. Ok. I think this line may not be the best. I am reading alot about dimethicone and how it clogs pores. In fact, I have a few new zits so I am going to stay away. I ordered the Regimin and I hope the moisturizer is enough.
