  1. Great for use with adapalene

    I started adapalene 0.1% gel two weeks ago and this moisturizer has been a godsend during this retinization period. I overdid it with the adapalene the first week by applying every night, which made my skin tight and red, with some mild swelling around my eyes. Cetaphil moisturizing lotion wasn’t providing enough relief so I switched to Acne.org’s moisturizer. It was so soothing! It feels light, though still hydrating enough to repair my dryness. Within two days, my skin calmed down. Now, I use
  2. Excellent for keratosis pilaris

    I’ve had keratosis pilaris on the back of my arms for decades. I did not know what it was for a long time and was only recently diagnosed by a dermatologist, who suggested that I try AHA on the affected areas. Within two weeks of applying acne.org’s AHA, I saw the number of bumps decrease, even though I was only applying it once every 2-3 days.

    Spironolactone

    Been dealing with hormonal acne since I hit adulthood. Started spiro 100mg/day on 12/19/17. Some dry mouth. Drier skin than normal, but not noticeable after moisturizing. Few days of mild breast tenderness that resolved. No dizziness, fatigue, hair loss.
  4. Works for hormonal acne

    I have had mild-moderate acne along my cheeks, jawline, and neck for years. It was controlled to varying degrees depending on my level of stress with topical treatments, but I was looking to make better progress. A friend suggested spironolactone given the distribution of my acne. I was prescribed 100mg daily. I stopped getting frequent whiteheads/cystic acne after the first month (see my album!) but I hyperpigment easily so it has been taking a long time for the dark marks to fade. I now take 1
  5. I use baby powder (either talc or cornstarch). I pat a thin layer onto my face after I finish Dan's regimen and it controls the shine until evening! I sometimes reapply in the afternoon if I've been running around and my face is shinier than usual. I know some people say that talc is chemically similar to asbestos but use your common sense and don't put yourself in a position where you'll be breathing it in. That being said, you can always use cornstarch powder instead. I was originally worried

    DK regimen progress

    I started the regimen back on January 23, 2011. Morning and night, I use Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser, Neutrogena On the Spot Treatment, and Cerave Moisturizing Lotion. I only uploaded pics of the right side of my face, which had always been slightly worse than my left side. I follow Dan's regimen religiously. It works! Best thing is, I never shy away from pictures anymore.
