  1. Here's the background info: Started regimen a long, long time ago. About four years ago. After 5ish months on it I was baby face clear and stayed that way for about half a year. Mind you, during this time I could eat ANYTHING and not be affected. It was a good time. Flash Forward to now, my skin isn't that great. It's typically a week long breakout (1-2 zits a day, for a week) follow by a week of healing/red spots, followed up by two-three days of clear, nice looking skin. Only to break
  2. Here's the background info: Started regimen a long, long time ago. About three years ago. After 5ish months on it I was baby face clear and stayed that way for about half a year.

  3. Wish I could help. 3yr regimen user here. Over time it lost its 'powers' to me. I break out much more frequently now, it sucks -- still not anything better out there though.
  4. Please don't tell people this. Some people never outgrow acne and will have it the rest of my lives. When I was growing up everyone told me that it would go away one day and it turned out that was false. Gee, every single one of your posts are such debbie downers. Lighten up a little pal.
  5. Thank you all for the suggestions and tips, as far as my face goes I have a quick update: Switched from a gel based cleanser to a foaming based. I am now using CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser morning and night. My face feels noticeably less 'tight' between cleansing and applying BP and I don't have a beard of flakes. Face is a little less red, I've only been using it for three days so the judgement is still out on it. For a moisturizer I think I am going to switch from my trusty DML lotion to a aloe
  6. I actually do not. Used it for about the first month when I first started the regimen, hated it. I'm weary to go back on it because the reviews for it are terrible, but does it help with the redness? I don't know if my face is ready to go cold turkey on BP. Afraid that would cause some massive breakouts, took me long time to get to where I am now. I like the idea of aloe vera, I will look into that.
  7. It's been nearly two years since I started the regimen, and no, this is not a success story (bummer, right?). Here's my problem, my face is STILL red. The difference in skin tone between my face and my neck is super obvious. Neck skin is a slight tan and my face is a tomato. Gross. Last week I dropped from 1 pump morning and night to just under half a pump. Very slight reduction in redness. I'm still suffering from acne but I've "given up" on being 110% clear all the time, the regimen for the
  8. Ah, back again! If you've followed to any of my recent posts, you know I'm a frustrated Acne.org long timer. Long story short I started the regimen in December 2013 and was 110% baby butt clear about 5 months later. I then lived happily ever after with no acne! I wish... I stayed clear for the better part of 3-4 months. And I mean REALLY clear. No noticeable signs of acne at all. It was so good I could posted a photo of myself during my clear period and I had friends texting me say "Holy cr
  9. It's called Leaky Gut (Also known as Autoimmune disease) It's a real problem and it affects millions of Americans every year. You should really use a wonderful tool called Google, or heaven forbid actually open a book before you criticize someone.
  10. Current Regimen is the basic Acne.org one with DML lotion, I tried Dans lotion back when I first started the Regimen and it tinted my face yellow and overall it didn't work. I now only do one pump of BP because if I do two pumps my face becomes 1. Really red 2. Really oily (weird right?) 3. Generally disgusting to look at I've also found no correlation between the amount of BP used and skin condition. For example, last year around the 4 month mark, I reduced my BP intake to half a pump morn
  11. I go to a derm twice a year to check for skin cancer since it runs in the family, never have they once mentioned rosacea. I checked around online and i'm certain I don't have it. It's red, but not that red. Actually that reminds me, during the cross country season I took cold showers and I remember reading on here that the cold from the showers can actually help with oily skin glads. And I always have very clear skin when the season is in. (I don't know the science behind it, but hey, Eve
  12. Unfortunately I'm back on the forms (again) Thorough the year and a half I've been on the regimen I've noticed a few things - Skin is freakishly awesome in the summer/spring months - Skin is freakishly red/irritated/dry/disgusting in the winter months - For me, even though I've been on the Regimen twice a day for nearly TWO years, my face is still a little red - Random breakouts are a part of life Why I'm I telling you this? Because I'm pissed off. A few weeks back I had a friend come in tow
  13. Face still looks bad, at least it's only on one side of my face. Going out to buy some lac-hydrin today to see if that does anything.
  14. This happens to me ALL the time, for nearly the past month the right side of my face has gotten 8-10 zits. While the rest of my face stays 100% clear. I just cleared the right side up and now the left corner of my mouth has a few
