  1. I've been on the Regimen for a year now, and I've seen ok results. I wouldn't be going off of it if I weren't going to college soon, and it'll just be in the way there. I'm going to try Accutane, and I was wondering what I could expect from switching. I think I'll stay with the cleansing and moisturizing, and I've been doing BP only in the mornings for about 6 months now, so I should I expect a big breakout? I switched to less BP because I couldn't handle the dryness, and I'm wondering whether I
  2. I use Dan's Aha + nightly, as I've found that after the first few applications it hardly stung at all. I was just wondering if it's safe to use it so frequently, or if I should cut down. I've never had much success with aha - in fact I think it's making my skin more red, it never helped with flaking, and it doesn't seem to be helping with redmarks. Although, I thought it would compensate for the change in my Bp schedule, since I'm now only using that in the morning to combat flakiness. Is it nec
  3. I've been on the regimen since March, and had success with my acne, but I've always had terrible flaking. In July I moved down to Bp only at night, as Dans aha wasn't helping with the dryness. I haven't had any problems with dryness since then, but as a result I break out pretty badly even in minimal sun exposure, or when I don't wear sunscreen on a cloudy day. Sunscreen only lasts for 2 hours and often I don't have the chance to reapply before doing something. Why am I so prone to breakouts in
  4. I was thinking that maybe it's because I've been using aha every night, and that can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight. If I just went back to the normal acne.org moisturizer for most of the time and just spot treated with the aha maybe then I'd be better off
  5. Actually, the quality of my skin has improved since reducing my Bp usage. When I did it twice a day, I suffered from a ridiculous amount of flakes - and no aha or jojoba oil helped. Since cutting down, I've had better skin, but I breakout when exposed to sunlight. I plan on sticking with Bp at night for now, and trying to find a solution for the sun problem in the mean time.
  6. I've been on regimen for 6 months now, and i moved down to Bp only at night about 2 months ago, and from that time on I've gotten horrible breakouts in the sunlight - even on cloudy days. I'm positive that my breakouts are uv related and not something else. I use Olay moisturizer with SPF 15 in the morning, and neotrogena clear skin SPF 30 sunscreen when I need to reapply throughout the day, but these only last for a few hours. Is there a solution to this problem?
  7. Hi, I've been on the regimen since March and I've seen pretty fair results. School is starting next week, and I made the mistake of getting concert tickets on the night of the first full school day. I wake up and do my regimen at 6 every morning, and there's a chance that I might not get back until 2 in the morning that night! If I do the regimen at 2 will I suffer from really bad results? I only do Bp and aha at night nowadays ( because of dryness), and I cleanse and moisturize in the morning,
  8. Hi, this is my 4th month in the regimen. I never got over the flaking problem, even with huge amounts of aha, so about two weeks ago I cut my Bp usage to only at night. Now, my flakes are basically gone, and I still don't break out too often. I'm worried though, it's the summer and not as stressful. When the school year starts the amount of Bp I'm using might not be sufficient. I don't want to go back to twice a day everyday, so I was wondering if doing it twice a day every other day, (with onc
  9. How would I fit the Shea butter into my regimen?
  10. Hi, I've been on the regimen for over 3 months now, and I'm still struggling with flaking. They're always there when I get up in the morning, and it takes a lot of spot picking to make sure none surface throughout the day. I know what you're going to say: use aha! I use Aha every night as my nightly moisturizer, and still there is no difference. I lather jojoba oil over my face after I cleanse in the morning, and before applying Bp. Is there some mistake I'm making that permits these flakes to e
  11. Hey, thanks for the advice. I tried your method for a couple nights, and my flakes were going away. But then, after a night where I used aha, I woke up with a lot of flakes again. So that night (yesterday), I used aha again, but mixed a little moisturizer in with it, and still woke up with a huge amount of flakes. The aha no longer stings, but it does make my face a little red. Is it safe to use it every night? And maybe I'm not rubbing in my Bp and aha enough and it's just drying and sitting on
  12. Hi, I've been on the regimen for around two months at this point. Generally I longer have every day breakouts, although the areas above my cheeks are still swamped with dark marks and the occasional whitehead. The reason that I 'm posting this topic is to see if anyone has dealt with or has any solutions to the dry skin problem I'm having. I've been using aha every night for around a month by mixing it in to my moisturizer, but I've yet to see any improvements. Every morning I still wake up with
