  1. It's hard to tell from the photos but if you have active breakouts you should try something topical in conjunction with a cleaner diet. Topical being either a Benzoyl Peroxide treatment, Salicylic Acid treatment, or something prescribed from a Derm (not all treatments at once though!). Hope that helps!
  2. Hello! I recently joined as well after lurking for a while. Good luck with your diet & be sure to post about how it goes
  3. Hello! So I've been on the regimen for about 2 months now using the acne.org products. Prior to the regimen I was wearing Neutragena Sport Face spf 70+ in addition to using Neutragena Oil Free Moisture - Sensitive Skin. While on the regimen, I have been avoiding sunscreen completely (unless I know I will be out in the sun for long periods of time.) And when I have used my spf 70 on top of the regimen acne.org products it makes my face extremely oily and then its impossible to put makeup on to
  4. I had some stinging issues before, although I don't think it was from the jojoba oil, I would just wash it off with cold water & take a day or half day off applying the regimen & it me helped a lot! If you think or know its the jojoba oil stop using it & try just using a moisturizer without jojoba oil. Good luck!

    My Skin Progress

    Alright, so I was going to keep these pictures to myself because I am self conscious about them (but hey everyone else here is probably too!) So here are some weekly photos of my skin while using Acne.org's products. I've added comments on my progress on all of the front facing photos :)

    12/06/12 Woops, skipped two weeks due to being on vacation with my family with out my computer. & I'm wearing the same sweatshirt as the previous pics, haha. I'm up to 2 pumps BP morning & night now. And for moisturizer I use the acne.org mixed with a little cetaphil & acne.org's jojoba oil. My face is feeling A LOT better. Less flakes! Still have bad days every now and then. I have like 3 new whiteheads :/ oh well. As for makeup. Most of the time it looks decent, but if the

    11/14/12 Face isn't great but isn't horrible either. Using cetaphil every now and then because acne.org moisturizer isn't helping the dryness a lot. Feeling a little bit clearer, fewer breakout! I picked a few whiteheads, I know I shouldn't have but I did it. Dryness on neck is pretty much gone, & around eyes is getting better from using baby oil to remove eye makeup. I feel like the scars are beginning to fade (YAY). Was actually able to wear makeup one night & it looked good!

    11/7/12 Feeling discouraged Up to one pump of BP morning & night and my skin is SOOO irritated! This week at one point my face was burning (several hours after applications) so bad I actually had to wash everything off with cold water. My forehead is the only part of my face that isn't flaking, dry, & tight. Still breaking out, I feel like it hasn't improved much. Don't want to go outside, make up looks bad... almost worse than no makeup.

    11/1/12 My face looks orange... whaaat? Irritated? I don't know! Battling dryness on neck by using a washcloth only on my neck, because I think the BP was going on to my neck when I would wash my face in the sink. Still dry around eyes, & now on nose bridge also. My face is so dry throughout the day I have had to reapply moisturizer in the middle of the day, so in the middle of the day I use cetaphil & trader joes vitamin e oil. Makeup still looks horrible, good think I don't have

    10/24/12 I feel like my face is improving. The bigger zits are flatter now & just scars. The BP cream really burned my face & dried it out, so I only used it once a day the first week. Only a few new whiteheads. I have really bad dryness/flaking around my eyes & my neck (even though I'm not putting BP there) When I wear makeup it looks horrible due to the dryness.

    10/17/12 The day I received my acne.org products in the mail & hadn't used them yet. Lots of scaring a little bumps, 2 major zits one near my mouth and one on my forehead.
  24. I'm about at two months now & need to order my AHA! As for when my flaky skin is too much I can't take it, I mix the acne.org moisturizer with a little bit of cetaphil moisturizer & it helps a lot. My skin would not only look flakey and gross, but feel tight and uncomfortable & mixing in the cetaphil moisturizer helped a lot (I still have some flakes though) Since your post was from about 2 months ago, how is the AHA working out for you?
