  1. Hellooooo, Your regimen sounds interesting and I'm glad it worked wonders for you! I want to try this out but money's a bit tight so I was wondering if I could just leave the probiotic part out? I already have a multivitamin in my regimen as well as fish oil so would just adding the fiber supplements be okay? Thank you in advance!
  2. Glad to hear you found something that works for you! Haha that is so true. Don't forget to keep me updated with how you're doing!
  3. Hey whatthekell! Yaaay I'm glad someone's reading these and I'm not totally talking to myself here I'm sorry to hear about your flaking issues Hmm if the Cetaphil cleanser ingrdients are different from the lotion then I'd say go for it. Not too sure though. I've also heard good things about Olay products. Have you tried those out? Sorry, I'm bad at giving advice..
  4. Whoaaa it's been a long time since I posted! Sorry just been too lazy :\ Not sure if anyone reads this though haha anyways.. I just started my 5th month into this journey and I'm not sure how I feel. The breakout I previously told you about went away in about say a week or less but left me with hyerpigmentation. Not too bad though. I've since gotten only one decently sized pimple since then but some clogged pores. I also don't like the texture or tone of my skin so that worries me a bit
  5. Well thanks guys I appreciate your responses and I am learning to just accept my pores (way better than having large,inflamed bumps)
  6. hahaa, that women that writes those articles is a nut. no facts provided, strictly opinions. her info is dated too. also, the sun isn't bad for the skin. it's beneficial, unless abused. If BP is "enlarging your pores" then simply stop using it. common sense. don't make people scared of using a product that will most likely clear up their skin issues. I've been using BP for over a year and I couldn't be happier with it. I'm assuming you're talking to me about scaring people? First off, hi I'm no
  7. So I never really seen my pores as being an issue before I started the regimen which was like 4 months ago. But now they're getting pretty big and put of nowhere too! Idk if it's the BP or what. I also haven't been exfoliating since august so I'm wondering if maybe that'll help. Does anyone know if AHA will help with my problem?? I'm freaking out! Oh and it's only happening on my cheeks which are my problem areas and where I put the most BP on..
  8. Well what happened to me was that I got so clear I decided I didn't need my medication all that much anymore. I went out a lot and slept in my makeup. (Tisk Tisk *I know*) When I finally went back to it after a breakout it was too late. Idk if the effect wore off the second time or if I was being impatient and did the regimen wrong. But yeah just stick with it! Good luck (:
  9. Hi This same regimen was prescribed to me back when I went to a dermatologist! It really doesn't matter which order but after I waited some time after washing my face at night I'd apply the Clindamycin wait about ten minutes then apply Tretinoin. This got me clear by the way! Until that fateful summer.. That was probably my fault though. Anyway hope I helped!
  10. Idk these sound like clogged pores to me. I had some of those and they do take a while to go away. Eventually they turned into regular pimples or blackheads, dried up, and went away..
  11. Hey! I use Estee Lauder double wear foundation and I'm on the regimen Maybe my skin would be a bit better if I didn't but it doesn't take away the fact that the regimen works if that's what you wanna know
  12. Hmm really? They work fine for me. Oh well everyone's different.. Well I hope you find something that works for you. Good luck! (:
  13. Omg same here! It's like I can never win. When I first started I thought for sure I'd be clear by now. From now on no more adding products unless Dan recommends them. On the brightside I do see a huge improvement from August. Chin and forehead remain clear it's just my cheeks that always get it bad. Really bad. Well hey at least there's another holiday we can look forward to being clear too P.S. I heard the AHA does a really good job for flakes! Looking forward to ordering it once I get some
  14. Week 14 Heeeello. I know it's been a while but I'm here to tell you all that the regimen does work! Let me explain to you what has happened on the last couple of weeks. At about week 11 I was still breaking out but a lot less! And I almost always saw them coming. My pih was fading dramatically. I'm almost sure I would have been clearer sooner if I would have gotten a recommended moisturizer. Nevertheless once my skin got used to the moisturizer I got in the beginning of my journey all was
  15. I live in Phoenix and am kind of on a tight budget. I was actually considering Burt's Bees eye cream but not sure yet. What do you think?
  16. Thanks California! I'm looking into an eye cream but there's so many to choose from idk which really works! I noticed you use Image Vital C Recovery Gel. Where and how much is it?
  17. I've been on the regimen for almost three months and recently the area around my eyes have been extra baggy and I'm developing deep lines. I'm only 17! I make sure not to get it so close to my eyes but at the same time it still stings my eyes for just a moment. Not all the time though. The area around my eyes has also been super red and tired looking lately. I'm thinking it's probably an allergic reaction to a cold cream I've been using to take off my eye makeup since that's the only new thing I
  18. Hey guys! Just wanted to keep you updated on my progress. It actually feels like I've just taken two steps back. I now sport two pimples. One by my mouth that you can't see but you know it's there and the fact that it's gonna be a pain. The other one is on my cheek bone. I saw it coming because it's been a clogged pore for some time now. It's come to a head but I fight the urge to pop. It's kind of disappointing because I've hit 10 weeks already and I'm still not clear but I'm confident
  19. Omg you look sooooo awesome The scarring doesn't even look so bad in the pictures. I hope all goes well for you!
  20. Week 10 Okay so I haven't written on here in a while. Sorry! Things are okay. I'm clear and my face is so smooth! On the other hand I do have a lot of scarring. I don't understand what's wrong. I never had this bad of scarring before, just some dark acne marks that would go away. This time it's that with red marks and what looks like some indentations. Please go away! One of them was weird. Like I got a huge pimple with a white head and I left it alone for a while. Then I couldn't take it
  21. Haha I don't either! It seems that everytime I do I get little red pimples there. I know it's the BP causing it because I never get pimples there. I do have blackheads though so I use the Biore nose strips to help with that
  22. Caffeine does this to me too which sucks because I looove coffee. When I switched to tea and changed my soda to some kind of juice I noticed a significant difference. I was even almost clear! I then would give in to my addiction of coffee and thought there must be some other way to control my acne. I started the regimen and I'm never looking back! I'm so happy I did because I can still get my fix of coffee and dr.pepper although I have cut down on them to every other week..
  23. I'm officially at my 8 week mark. Things are alright. No new pimples (knock on wood). I still have the three stubborn ones that are very slooowy. They're not as red so I'm happy for that but it'd be better if it didn't take 2 weeks to get to this point. My face is smooth and the best it's been in a long while. Hopefully I'll be completely clear by Christmas! Also thinking about buying Dan's AHA next time I order some BP but not sure since it seems pretty expensive to me. I'm so happy i start
  24. Hey there james! Thanks for stopping by Man, you're so lucky you're clear already. Haha I'm okay with not being clear just yet. I believe in the "it gets worse before it gets better." I'm pretty sure I'm doing it right and I'm very committed to it. I've only skipped one application. Haha hopefully this is my answer >.< I believe this is daaaay 53? So yeah, basically my skin is getting much better! PIH is quickly subsiding. Still have the same damn pimples that won't go down on my left ch
