  1. Hey there! I just noticed your post and it may be in the incorrect thread. This thread is a discussion for those using the acne.org regimen.
  2. Well... here I am again.. just shy of 10 years from the first time I began using the regimen to clear my acne. Let me begin by affirming my love for this regimen. It’s the ONLY thing that I have tried that’s always worked on maintaining my skin. I have deviated plenty of times and each time that the breakouts get really bad, I turn right back to the regimen and my skin recovers. Though I am now in my 40's, I never outgrew the traumas of having acne prone skin but I have learned plenty along thi
  3. I use Missha Gel SPF and Innisfree Mild Sunscreen and apply with air puffs. For some reason, any sunscreen I apply with my hands makes me turn bright red but since I started using the air puffs to apply, no more irritation. Take a look at websites like stylevana.com or yesstyle.com. They sell many korean and japanese sunscreens that do a great job of protecting your skin and don't have the dreaded white cast.
  4. I would ramp back up to twice a day. Scale back on the extras and keep it gentle and simple. Make sure you use the regimen exactly as instructed and keep up with the sunscreen during the day. Sounds like you deviated and your skin is not quite ready to use less BP than you may have assumed. I am 41 years old and have been using the regimen on and off for over 10 years and whenever I diverge from using it exactly as it was intended, I break out. Hope that helps!

    Updated Review: I love, love, love, love, love, love, love this stuff!!! Seriously a holy grail for my oily, acne prone and aging skin!! The gentle exfoliating action has done wonders for my forehead and smile lines while giving my skin a gentle boost of moisture; an absolute MUST for my aging 37 year old skin. I use it at night after cleansing with my Clarisonic Mia in the shower, then apply in an upward motion. I do not use BP 2.5% with the AHA because I found it too irritating on my skin. Ins
  6. Sounds like the other products may be causing irritation, which will exacerbate acne. Try going with the recommended regimen products only and see how it goes. Good luck!
  7. Do you have any pics that you can show us, so that we can determine what type of marks these are? More than likely it's PIH, but you can never be too sure.
  8. The regimen sort of creates a "tanning" effect. The moisturizer does not cause a yellow/orange hue per say, rather, it's your skin adjusting the BP. The odd skin tone should fade over time.
  9. Seems like your BP is migrating to your eye area. It does happen. Try not to get BP or moisturizer near the eye area (lid and under eye area) and that should correct the problem. Look at Dan's tutorials for reference. Good luck!
  10. Try eliminating AHA all together for a bit and see how your skin reacts. At times AHA can make your skin very irritated, especially during the early stages of the regimen. Stick to the first 3 steps religiously and see how your skin reacts. Personally, I still experience redness and I've been doing the regimen for over 3 years.
  11. What is your current regimen? Usually when you step down your BP dosage, you can experience huge breakouts. Also, I know for myself, hormone fluctuations (huge cystic breakouts) or too much alcohol can severely affect how my skin looks (dryness/redness). Try documenting everything you've done since you've been experiencing the breakouts and usually you can find out what the culprit is. It's good to reevaluate your daily activities to see if there is a possible link between it and your breakouts.
  12. Hello... I'm a long time regimen user, 3 years and counting, and I have had the same type of reaction. What type of products are you using? It may be a reaction to one of the products you're using or part of the purging process. Please be sure to check out the regimen approved products and try not to deviate from the exact regimen steps. With time and consistency, you eventually will have clear skin. Let us know how it's going.
  13. Hi there.... It's not uncommon to have your breakouts return if you don't continuously use the regimen. Unfortunately, some people, like myself, never cease having acne and when the regimen gets us clear, we tend to slack and stop using it. I, like yourself, learned the hard way that the regimen is the only thing that keeps us clear and we'll probably need to continue using it for many years to come. Anyway, have you taken the clear skin assessment? Perhaps you are neglecting a step in the regim
  14. Try not to skip days and find replacements with the regimen products as soon as possible. Even one week off the regimen can put you back at the beginning and you'll need to start the process all over again.
