    problems with dryness or flaking?

    I do the jojoba oil before BP both day and night in a way similar to what I described above, but with less jojoba oil and time. I use about 5-6 drops for my whole face. At first I start dabbing them on problem areas (eyelids, around mouth, sides of face), and then I put on the rest and sort of pat it on. I use a massaging technique similar to what I described in my really long post above, but not for nearly as long, just to cover my face. If I accidentally used too much jojoba oil, I might b

    wondering how dry your skin gets

    just something to add to this.. after cleansing putting about 5-10 drops on your face, then waiting for it to dry, then BP makes a big difference too. i found that it took away my lobster face and kept my face more hydrated. and if youre still flakey before applying the moisturizer.. add a couple drops of it to that aswell. your face will thank you for it.

    primer and foundation over AHA

    im still doing the regimen twice a day everyday.. but i think jojoba oil might help your situation. putting it on atfer or with the SPF lotion your using might bring some healthy shine back to your face. its quite the little miracle worker!

    Getting clearer by the day!

    thats awesome! im pretty much exactly where you are (2 months in and pretty much no blemishes.. just some red marks) i just wanted to add in that i think your face got really irritated from using the AHA too much to start. even dan himself i think says he uses it about once a week, but you can work yourself up to using it every night or every other night. but by the looks of it you use it everyday now with the jojoba oil scrub (which i love aswell). good luck!

    I'm sick of this regimen :(

    i believe the regimen is for those who have tried everything else.. and nothing has worked (like myself) and also cant afford the pricey treatments from a specialist. that, and those treatments wont keep your acne away after doing it once. dan's regimen is a cheap facial routine to do every morning and night just like every other face washing system.. difference is it actually works (maybe minus those that are allergic to BP) you may not like it, but others like myself have seen it as a miracle

    I'm sick of this regimen :(

    BP is a world wide known way to fight acne.. my own doctor told me to use it. your EXPERT prolly wanted some money out of you.. because ive never heard of any "skin extraction" you can get anywhere but a dermatologist's office. BP puts oxygen into our pores, and makes it impossible for bacteria to live there.. thus, no pimples. almost every acne wash, lotion, or even some astrigents have either BP or salicylic acid in it.. which can also be very irritating and drying to the skin, but it fights
  7. because if it needed to be diluted.. it would have been suggested in part of the regimen instructions. you've tested it on your face and you said it didnt break you out.. so use it! your face will thank you for it.
  8. ive been on the regimen for 2 months. im vertually clear of blemishes.. get one or two a week but just mostly red marks left over. HOWEVER... there is this one lump on my chin from a HUGE cyst that came up WEEKS ago. it isnt painfull whatsoever anymore... but its still reddish (like post pimple red, nothing that looks irritated) and its STILL a large lump that wont go down. has anyone ever found a good way to make these flatten out? i never poked or squeezed at it when it first came up, all th

    which mositurizer is right

    use something under dan's recommended products for the best results. or go to the review boards and find something else that is good for acne prone skin. im using cetaphil, and i have absolutely no complains about it. gets rid of all the flakes, and makes my face feel hydrated. thats just my point of view tho, others arent a fan of the texture and how heavy it can feel. good luck.

    Dans regimen question

    once you do this a couple times all the flakes will be vurtually gone. even the stubborn ones. try to sit down and watch a half hour show or something while you gently massage your face for that time. i usually do it for an hour if possible even when i dont have dry skin anymore. it just feels nice massaging skin for 30 minutes? isnt that way too irritat it shouldnt be unless youre doing it vigerously. doing it gently for that amount of time and avoiding your active pimples (or ju

    Dans regimen question

    if youve been spot testing it for 2 weeks now, it should be fine to apply over your whole face. if your skin didnt like it, you would have seen either a break out or irritation by now in that spot. mm, well it was deffinatly a roller coaster. my face didnt change much at all for about.. a month. by the end of the second week (just like dan says on what to expect) i got a horrible breakout. i got about 3-4 new breakouts everyday for about 3 or 4 days.. after that it only got better. during wee

    Is more BP always better?

    the immunity thing youre talking about is very true, but if you are only using it for spot treatments.. your skin doesnt have enough time to get used to it and to build up that immunity. cause our zits only last up to 4-5 days tops right? if you were still breaking out regularily and at the beginning stages of the regimen, then yes.. slathering it on your face everywhere wouldnt be a smart way to go at all. but as for us who are vertually clear, its a damn good zit zapper
