  1. Hi acne forum goers, I've had some problems with the Regimen. My first and biggest problem is the dry flaky skin. I occasionally exfoliate with a light exfoliant, and I've tried AHA+. AHA seemed to help even out my skin tone nicely, but dry skin is still quite an issue. Even if it's not visible on my face, as soon as I wipe my face on a shirt or cloth or anything, a smear of white specs is left behind. If I ever want to lay my head on a guys shoulder, you bet I'll be thinking
  2. Hello all, I've had a good four year run with BP and due to reoccuring annoyances with dry skin I'd like to make my routine something that will help my skin be healthy---not just LOOK healthy. I've been doing a lot of research and have come across information on codliver oil, Vitamin supplements, baking soda, tea tree oil, lemon juice, and this list goes onn and ooonn......there is SO MUCH INFORMATION. I'm having a lot of trouble sorting through all of it. Is anyone out there using a simple t

    Two Weeks Since Reducing Bp

    I went one week with only using BP at night and this past week I alternated between using it twice a day and once a day. I found after reducing BP for a while the excessive flakiness and dryness I was experiencing subsided and my skin soaked up the moisterizer immediately after drying from cleansing. Over time though my skin was not as ready to soak in moisterizer, as the dryness caused from BP usage over the years subsided. Now I feel as though its unnecessary to skip BP usage in the morning

    One Week Follow Up On Reducing Bp

    So for this week I only used BP at night. I was consistent except for Friday night where I skipped moisterizing, but that's not going to effect my results that badly. The first morning that I left the treatment out took some mental effort because the regimen has become SUCH a habit for me, but I absolutely loved it. It was like drinking water for the first time after a long day where you just couldn't find any. I couldn't fathom how I was about to put BP on such a dry canvas. Skipping this s

    Flakiness And Reducing Bp

    Yikes! Yeah hopefully that helps! I know Dan says 2.5% BP is the best kind to use to avoid harshness, maybe that would help too. Peace to you as well!

    Flakiness And Reducing Bp

    I've decided that I'm going to try reducing the BP I use to once a day at night time. I will still cleanse and moisterize in the morning like usual but I am tired of having flaky skin. It's the most persistent around my hairline but sometimes effects other areas of my face as well. It's been four years and I haven't really figured it out. I exfoliate now and then which isn't good for maintaining clear skin but I don't know what else to do. Besides, I'm 19 now and hopefully my skin has calmed

    Still Have Dry And Flaky Skin!

    I've been using the regimen for about four years now and I have the same flake problem. Part of how the BP works to my understanding is that is makes your skin cycle through its life faster, hence why the flaking is kind of dramatic. Jojoba oil is a freaking godsend. I understand not wanting to put it on your face during the day, but I highly recommend using it at night. Even if you don't use it regularly, you can use like 10-12 drops at once to help take off the existing flakes. I'll use Ne
  8. Where My Skin is at Now After all the time I've been using the Regimen, I think I've come to know it pretty well. My skin is clear and I can almost predict my breakouts based on how well I've been following the rules Dan gives on this site. In fact, its not only clear, I dare say its healthy and beautiful. Dark spots from my previously moderate-severe acne-d face have long since faded. Whenever I breakout now the pimples are small and barely noticeable. I actually have a papule underneath
  9. Well its true. I, the ever so loyal user of the Regimen for about a year and a half, anti-dutifully skipped using the regimen after I got my wisdom teeth out. Good news is I probably saved some product because my face was so ridiculously swollen the first few days I would have had to use more of it than usual. MY TIP to any of you pre-teens or teens who haven't gotten their wisdom teeth out! Get them out EARLY. BEFORE they're an issue. During a long vacation so its not a stressor preferabl
  10. Haha awesome, I don't usually get comments so this is pretty neat lol. Hmmm I feel like I should say something back....HI! :P

      Oh dear, how long has it been?

      I'M A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL. Well its summer but technically I'm one since the old seniors graduated. Anyways, lets see, I started the regimen sometime in January 2010...the 13th I think, I remember being amused by it because I didn't notice I had started on such a controversial number. Well if that is the case I've been on the regimen for a year and four months and 17 days. Crazy I know! So for all you guys and gals out there thinking about trying the regimen, remember 3 months WILL pass..

      I'm BAAAACK!!!!

      Hello internet and company. Well I've been on the regimen now for...a long time. Junior year this year is absolutely crazy, so I haven't really had time or energy to come on and make a post. Thankfully its now winter break (yes I still have HW to do that I can't finish by the end, GAAH) so I do have the energy to write in this blog yet again! So I visited my family in Texas recently. After being on the regimen for ALMOST a year, missing two applications (one on the flight there, and
    3. So I decided to go to a friend's meet today. (lets call her..Eliza) Eliza and her mom were very accommodating! Plenty of food (cheeze its! yum!) and exciting events. I loved the atmosphere of the crowd! how people would wait until their teammate's head arose from the current of water their own limbs had produced to shout "GO GO GO GO!", their voices carrying out past the coaches' tents into the swim center's parking lot. And what's even more exciting, my friend's extra suit fit me. I was e

      aha question

      If you've been on the regimen for more then a month use how much Dan tells you to. And yes, four steps. I'd recommend waiting to make sure the BP has dried, if you don't the aha won't absorb as quickly or as efficiently. Also use it just at night at first, or period. Its powerful stuff, especially if you haven't used it before. I just used it as a nighttime moisturizer for oh three days in a row and my face gets really flaky. Experiment and figure out if you need to spread it out timewise

      Week 22, Day 148

      Wow, haven't been on for a while. It had been taxing writing blog entries because my skin doesn't change much in just a day anymore. I've kind of gotten used to it. My dark spots are definitely disappearing though. Something I've noticed, I get these raised colorless bumps now and then on my face that don't seem to go away. I get them all over my shoulders too and its annoying. I might do some research to see what they are. They're usually the same size or bigger than other acne. And

      Week Nineteen: Day 129

      'ello everybody! So te letter next to j doesn't work now. Okay, ere's some interesting facts about my recent failures wit te Regimen. I went to Disneyland on a band trip (woop! We played a concert tere) And realized I ad left my treatment portion of te regimen at ome. I felt sooo bad once I found tat out. So I didn't use benzoyl peroxide for..four days. I still used cleanser and moisturizer toug. I do ave a lot of small red irritated acne on my nose and probably more to come. Also yest
    7. As long as you follow the Regimen you will be fine. Did you also order jojoba oil? I find it very effective for helping with flakiness. Like previous posts have specified: start with a pea size amount. Literally. You MIGHT have an initial breakout,..but you'll find the new zits fade quicker than they would of. Also jojoba oil can help 'trick' your skin into thinking there's already oil on your face. It'll be more oily than usual but eventually your skin stops producing the amounts it was

      Week Seventeen: Day 114

      Sorry I've been so lazy! But I'm here to report I did reorder the regimen and my skin is doing splendid. Unfortunately I did get one big zit a bit under my eye again, but after one night with AHA+ the size was reduced. I'm actually glad I got it because I was able to see how much better my skin was! To think that acne used to be ALL OVER and they've been reduced to little black spots is pretty incredible. http://i746.photobucket.com/albums/xx109/T.../0507101537.jpg Here's a progress pictu

      Week Sixteen: Day 110

      Oops, so I kinda skipped a week. Yep. I don't feel the need for a progress picture. I get real flaky nowadays despite the fact my BP amount hasn't changed. No miraculous clearing really, still stubborn dark spots and occasional new zits, not to mention my vast amount of body acne. I'm going to try and keep the regimen going though, its worth it to prevent future scarring without resorting to the recently recalled accutane (I lol'd when I heard that, almost went there too!) Well I don't kne

      Week Fifteen: Day Ninety-Nine

      Wow. Almost 100 days. Well my skin's doing well. There are little bumps but I don't mind. Getting to itch my face is worth it in my point of view ^^;; So, . . . my day didn't go so well. My self confidence is awesome with everything except other people. I get shy and care so much about making good impressions that I come off as conceited or really quiet. Hate that. Then if I talk I come off like an airhead or a brain or sometimes simply a nice person, but I always feel like an ugly airh

      Week Fifteen: Day Ninety-Eight

      Arrgh! So my skin was dry and REALLY flaky ALL day!!! And then I went to the bathroom and had this pinhole of blood right inbetween my eyes from a popped zit I wasn't even aware of! I know I itched my face quite a bit but I never touched myself inbetween my eyes, I mean, I'd remember that! Didn't even know I had a zit there! So unfair, I thought it was food or something (didn't know what 'cause i didn't eat anything red but whatever) so I tried to get it off, resulting in more blood! Grr!

      Week Fourteen: Day Ninety Seven

      Okay so my skin felt real tight today. Kinda flaky and itchy too. Don't know why, didn't change anything. Ohhh well. Well nothing much to report,..um,.I made a new friend And I finished all my math homework in class (second time this semester!) Yes! And I'm real close to finishing this book for english even though we weren't supposed to until the end of the week. Ha! And soon I'm going to a recital and after that second band rehearsal,..I'm hoping if there's a break and my dad doesn't w

      Week Fourteen: Day Ninety Six

      Wow, so I now fail at keeping a daily skin blog. Well anyways I used aha as a moisturizer again for the past two nights. Wow, its definately working. Its easier to see results on the lefthand side of my face than the right hand. Don't know why acne's worse on one side verses the other but whatever. Oh yeah and guess what! I'm understanding math!! I'm pretty sure its because I'm making a better effort to pay attention and I don't question what information they are telling us. Before I

      Week One: Day Six

      I'm confused on why I started last Wednesday but this Wednesday will be day eight instead of day seven. Oh well. So yeah, got back from honorband yesterday. I managed to get sick. My throat is really dry no matter how much water I drink, and I have congestion pretty bad in my head. It makes me dizzy and really full of snot whenever I just wake up. I have been doing a lot of traveling though so I guess its to be expected. Thank god for Martin Luther king day! I can use today to recover an

      Week Fourteen: Day Ninety-Three

      Alright, so I've had a TON of candy and a TON of chips and I feel TIRED and DRAINED and FRUSTRATED XD. Blerp. I think my phone fell out of my pocket at school somewhere in the grass v.v I called it too so someone might of found it who won't give it back to me But yeah,..four hour rehearsal with breaks and a ton of food. I wore a housecoat and pajama bottoms But anyways my skin's doing fine I guess. I can tell there are a lot of potential breakouts under the skin, it almost looks patchy.
