  1. Welcome Back Alyssa! I was wondering if you had forgotten about this site, but glad to know you're still alive : p

    Man that really stinks that you're leg had to get injured like that : ( I hope you are able to heal it up again very soon since I would hate to see you miss out on all those Marathons you would of enjoy to have run.

    Don't lose hope!!


  2. One suggestion would be to lower the use of BP to a minimal amount

    I remember that at one point I was getting so many flakes in my face, the thought of swiping my face with my hand would cause the flakes to appeared instantly. I just started to use a small about of BP and LOTS OF MOISTURIZER to heal my skin.

    This upcoming month, the flakes have died down and I am now using Aha+ and Jojoba Oil in my Regimen and have done wonders, if you won't use Aha then consider using Jojoba oil cause it says on the description that it's suppose to heal with dry flakey skin.


  3. At first I only used the AHA+ every other night, but now I just put about a nickel-sized dollop in my hand and use it by itself every night. I actually never used Dan's cleanser, I'm not really sure why haha, but I'm planning to give it a try in the future for sure! And that might be it since my friend who uses only the cleanser from the Regimen said it dried out her skin a bit, but I was pretty dry and flaky from the BP in the first two months anyways haha. Give it a bit more time and I'm sure the flakiness will die down! AHA+ actually helps with dry patches a lot too!

    *nods* thanks for the advice on the Aha+ I will becareful on applying it and will try to put just a small amount so it won't burn my skin. I have just have to wait for my upcoming check to go and buy it lol ^_^;;

    Hopefully the flakes will die down or I might have to change cleasner even though i don't want that for fear of breaking out again.

    Still cheers on clear skin ^_^ Now take many pictures to always treasure them and to get amazing compliments hehe.


  4. Thank you so much!! It's great that it's working out well for you too! At first I didn't think the AHA+ really helped me that much, but looking back on the pictures I can definitely tell it did, so I would highly recommend it! It just burns a lot when you first use it haha, but it does eventually lessen!

    How did you use it? did you do the AHA+ 2-3 times a week or dispense 1/2 AHA+ and 1/2 Moisturizer into your palm, mix, and apply every night?

    Also i read that you used different cleansers? does that mean you never used Dan's cleanser?

    Could that be the reason why my skin is drying out and I'm getting skin flakes? because that's the only negative thing that I noticed about using all three dan's cleanser, bp and moisturizer.


  5. Congrats on you're journey on clearing up you're skin, it looks amazing and I'm glad to see you happy from the results

    I am only 4 months into it and I have noticed a lot of improvement, it sucks that I didn't know about this product sooner, it would of help me and it would of change my life into a different direction. All I could do is try to improve what skin I have left and try to made the ""scars"" less noticeable.

    I really must get the Aha+ perhaps that will help a small amount.


  6. Hi there! I've been on the Regimen for about 5 months and, yes, I'm still on it, though I no longer do BP twice a day. My skin is super sensitive to begin with and I had to cut back drastically. I do a full finger's pump at night and this seems to keep everything clear for the most part. My skin in very soft and not as oily as it used to be, no flakes and very minimal dryness. I do have dark spots and pit marks from past cystic acne. AHA seems to be helping with these. BTW...I tried to quote your post, but it's not letting me...I guess this reply thingy hasn't been fixed since I last logged on (?)

    AlexZero2014: The AHA is awesome! I would absolutely recommend!

    How did you use it? did you do the AHA+ 2-3 times a week or dispense 1/2 AHA+ and 1/2 Moisturizer into your palm, mix, and apply every evening?


  7. lol same here xD I was about to ask if you still get the flakes? I been thinking of purchasing Aha+ or Jojoba Oil, but I don't know which one is good for the flakes

    btw I'm happy you are 100% clear, If I had to guess on my skin, I think I'm 60% around there.The regimen did wonders for my acne and reduce some of the scars apperance making it smooth looking.


  8. It's going to sting for a bit, but if it's burning like crazy and won't stop even after you have used the Moisturizer for the last step then you're either putting on way too much BP or you're rubbing too much when you're applying it.

    Just put a small dab on each side of you're face and gently spread it at least 4 times with you're finger and just let it dry out on it's own.


  9. I am glad the regimen is working for you!!!

    My knee is somewhat okay. It turns out I messed up my IT band, which can't be healed by time, but mostly by stregthening the muscles around the tendon, so that means lots of squats, spin class, swimming, elliptical and weights. I've been doing that, along with hiking for the last three weeks, and was finally able to run 3.1 miles straight last week!! !I was so happy, it took everything in my power to not scream with joy in the gym LOLL..

    WHICH brings me to the subject of the gym...literally before i had no self confidence. I was so worried about my face. Now, I just put on some concealer (still haven't put foundation on in over two months!!!) and I wipe my face with a towel, and I don't care what anyone thinks, because my face hardly looks bad. I even GO IN THE POOL and swim vigorously and don't care.

    My face is about 89% clear, I still get the random zits here and there, but I really think its from stress, sweat and rubbing my face //gotta stop that habit. Sorry for being MIA in this forum, real life has happened, and these classes are kicking my butt!!! I also finally finished my novel, so I'm working on the editing process before sending it off to hopefully get published!

    Yes Thank-you ^_ ^

    3.1 Miles is pretty good and keep on doing the swimming, I heard the water helps better strenght the muscle joints so good job on that part. 7.7 Miles to 11.2 miles a day, depending if I have time, I know for a fact because of the Walking mate app install on my phone. I'm really determined to achieve my goal!

    I went to the gym and Liked it because the work-out machines are great and I felt people don't judge by face...BUT they do judge you by muscles... well for me they did xD I kept hitting the 25lbs dumbells and people kept staring at my arms x P Have fun working on dem legs.

    Also don't forget to just smooth out the BP on the face, even though we bgen getting use to putting on the regimen, a while back I kept on rubbing the cream on my face way too much and I got a couple of pimples around my lips area. I went back to just being gentle on the bp and rubbing it very gently or just smearing it and they vanish in 2 days so becareful on applying it cause irration causes acne > - <; A novel o.o really? woah that's awesome!!!


  10. wow stunning before and after, also love the username. Poke fan over here.

    I been using Dan's Regime for 2 months now and my face has clear a whole lot, I just have to deal with the scars.. I wish i had know about the regimen sooner *sighs* it would of change the course of my life differently.

    ahaha have you seen the stream that's been going on - twitch plays pokemon? it's freaking hilarious omg.

    &yeah same here. wish I started ages ago rather than a year ago. would've saved me a lot of heartache for sure D;

    lol Yeah.. it's impossible and can't belive it was even done : P

    I'm glad that I stream through random you-tube videos and found a girl revewing this product or else I would of walk by past it and would of never know.

    heartache and headache and everything in between, but congrats again! I know this is random, but ever up for a X or Y match, let me know and I'd like to battle you :"D


  11. Hey so I been doing a little bit of research on microdermabrasion. I wanted to know more info with anyone on here that has either done the procedure, any tips and stuff like that.

    -does it hurt?

    -How much should it cost since I been reading on sites that the prodecure can range from 150-200 dollars?

    -was thinking of going to the closest place where they do it! which is a high class spa

    I have scars, ice pick scars and some red marks too. I'm taking upclose pictures and uploading them on Saturday, but in the meantime any help would be great apperciated thanks!


  12. I've been breaking out along my jawline, and I know it's because I'm resting my hands on my chin while in classes. UGHHH. But other than that my face is looking really good! Going to start incorporating the AHA because now most of my "acne" is the red marks, with only 1-3 actual bumps, give or take. It's looking up, oh also I got an 86% on my first chem test please go away stress pimples LOL

    Hey Aylssa and Everyone! It's been a while since I been on this site.

    How's the knee Aylssa? I'm guessing it's much better since you wrote that you went on a Hike.

    My regimen has been going steady ^_^ my face is much clearer now and I eventually get a breakout because I don't get time to add the regimen the second time because of work but it looks A LOT BETTER than it did before, I want to see if i can take pictures this Saturday. The only thing you will see on my face are scars, but I'm been doing research on this treament called microdermabrasion, I really want to try it out.

    so I been on the regimen for almost 2 months ^_^ and I love it!!!


  13. Just wanted to post a picture of my face!!!! Only wearing concealer, but as you can see it's not going to be needed soon!!!! biggrin.png

    rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gifrolleyes.gifrolleyes.gifwub.pngwub.pngwub.pngwub.pngrolleyes.gifrolleyes.gifrolleyes.giftinydan.gifhifive.gifhifive.gifsurprised.gifsurprised.gif

    Wow ^_______________________________________________________________________^ hifive.gif amazing!!! Beautiful!

    Hang in there on the leg, I was also going to suggest taking a long resting period, but I also didn't want to take you're enjoyment out by writing it >_<;; Rest and Patience like you said will be worth it in the end!

    Yep ^__^ I'm starting to feel my skin heal, I know it's working cause People aren't staring at me like 24/7 and picking at their own face when they see my face >_> Ugh always hated that xD I honestly felt like punching them xD but I just know it's my condition to deal with, it's not their fault...I will post some before and after photos too, I don't know if i can right here or make my own post... I'll let you decide alyssa


  14. Starting My Second Week Today! I can finally put the BP day and night and increase the usage ^_^ I have seen a bit of improvement which is good not bad cause little improvement is better than none.

    So the bone is not damage so it must be a loose muscle that's really sore and wiil take a long time to heal hmm let's see what the Mri has to say. Oh if you're going to eat lots then eat lots of apples and oranges and instead of chips, eat Raisins or Baby Carrots ^_^ that's what I do when I can't work out cause it's freezing outside or I'm out of time.


  15. MONTH 2 Week 4:

    WELL. I just got my hair done today, and my hair dresser was raving about how amazing my face looked and asked

    what I was doing so she could get her niece on it!!! biggrin.png she said I don't even need to wear my concealer (I haven't worn foundation in four weeks!!!!!)

    so this was just affirmation that it is totally working!!!

    I've been really depressed lately, since my knee is not allowing me to do my favorite thing in the world: Running. I've been struggling with depression because of this, so today my mom dragged me to the casino and i forced myself to go... glad I went because I won $150!!! It really lifted my spirits and I'm getting an xray on my knee Monday hopefully so I can get an MRI, because its my tendon that hurts behind my knee. When I run it is a splitting pain behind my knee. So, hopefully it heals since I have a half marathon I have to train for in May. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated! (even silent ones!)

    Also, I've now used AHA three times. Honestly no joke, my face is like HARDLY red anymore!!!! My mom even said today when we were at the Casino, she was staring at me and said, "Wow your face looks so great."

    Made me happy inside. I am just so happy this is working. I no longer fear waking up and looking at myself in the mirror, i'm excited to see how much better it will look!

    I hope everyone else is doing just as good!

    It's working amused.gif I see you're skin healing with less acne, I got my shipment yesterday, but I haven't had time to apply because I wanted to shave then let my skin heal for two days before I start.

    I read on the paper that came with the package that it says to only use the treament BP once a day for 1st week? hmm so I should only use the regime at night for one whole week then start morning and nights on the 2nd week?

    Hope you're knee recovers! Yeah lol I love running now, I just run back and forth on this path because it calms me, but now I want to tone up my body so perhaps I will reduce my jogging to 1 hour instead.

    Thank you so much! That means the world to me that you notice my skin is better. It has plagued me for so long and it's amazing to see it finally leaving me, even if just a little!

    When i got the treatment, I used a quarter size morning and night, I wanted to start fast haha. It turned out okay for me but that's up to you. smile.png I hope so too...I'm running again tomorrow morning so i'll let you know how it goes sad.png

    Hey no Problem amused.gif I'm not the only one on this thread that sees the difference! Glad to see you happy and cheerful.

    Yeah let me know how you're running went? Is the knee still bothering you? hope not. I'm gonna start the regimen tomorrow! amused.gif I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I'm getting everything ready! *fingers crossed*

    How is the Regimen doing for you? smile.png don't be nervous, be excited!! change is coming!!!!

    and it went great, until I over did it and went to the gym at the same day... sad.png now it won't even let me run past a mile. I've been really depressed, but trying really hard to pull myself out of it. Since running is everything to me, if i can't run, it literally feels like my life is over. eusa_wall.gif

    It's only been 4 days so of course I won't see any improvement just yet so I'm not freaking out xD still I love using the regimen because it's not making my face burn or itch and I've only been doing the morning regimen so that my skin will get use to the BP. I can't wait to start using it day and nights next tuesday soooo far so good ^o^!!

    I know what you mean about having a accident like that and not being able to do what you love to do, it gets frustrating and wish the pain would just go away. I had a similar back pain a while back when I was lifting weights... I felt like this back pain would never relive itself until I started using icy hot patches so perhaps that might work? or you can go to the doctors so they can give you pills to heal the pain that's causing you're knee to spaz out like that. I'm praying for you that it heals soon >__<!! and you can run again. Also I'm happy you are receiving all these great comments about you're face!! Trust me! we really see the improvement and it's great when people actually say "wow, you're face is getting better or looking clean" it's a good heart feeling moment.

  18. There are some rare gems out there that will understand what we go through... We all wish we didn't have this Acne and wish our faces would be clear like others. We have to keep on fighting and enjoy what life has to offer because in the end our lifetime, we only live once! So we gotta go enjoy everything for what it's worth.

    I don't mind how a girl appearance looks like, long as she is matured enough is what I look for.


  19. Thanks for the help/advice! I will definitely read all the forums plus watch the videos on how to apply the regime correctly. I will also keep a watch on you're journey =) because the way you express your self here! the full of energy of wanting to beat Acne gives me hope too! n.n!!! I can't wait to start the regime and to post before/after pics when I get the chance.

    I noticed a improvement when I checked out you're pics :) I can't wait to see more later on.

    ohh Riverside? hmm is that close to L.A? I live by the bay area in Concord.

    Same here! I actually was thin and have always been in great shape.. it was when Acne hit me was when i got into a depression mood and food was the only thing that made me felt good or bad >.> hehe since it was making me gain weight shifty.gif Now I jog at least 2 hours every day and do weights afterwards for about 30-45 mins. My next goal is to work on my abs and start feeling much better about myself. I now have two goals! beat acne and work out to my max level!
