  1. Tapering off is the best thing to do. Then slowly introduce a BHA as it goes skin deep where BP does not!
  2. Antibiotics wreck havoc on the body and can cause fungal infections of the skin. You did not mention you are on antifungals. Have you been diagnosed? Please see a dermatologist and be diagnosed. You'll be prescribe antifungal cream.
  3. Hi there. I'm glad I am not the only person who has developed skin issues after being on the regimen for 10 years. My skin was clear on the regimen. It was like a cure. But my skin was never "normal". Always dehydrated despite using jojoba oil and moisturizers, following the regimen to the "t". I was diagnosed with a dermatitis that I need to treat with antifungals now. Just like you, I felt like this was a magic to my skin, but also destroyed my barrier. I am now quitting the regimen. I wi
  4. In high school, I began breaking out with deep painful under the skin nodes on my forehead and my chin. I discovered the Acne.org regimen, was skeptical at first, but decided to give it a go to see if it would help my teenage acne. I thanked my lucky stars my skin was clear in 3 months after diligently applying two finger lengths of the benzoyl peroxide (main actor in this regimen). Every single day, I felt like I was masking my face with the product. Because the BP is so drying, my skin ne
  5. Terrible sunscreen

    Within a day I got painful under the skin blemishes and I mean painful! The type that takes over a week to go and away. If you have acne prone skin, I advise you to avoid this sunscreen like the plague. It includes acne causing ingredients. I'm glad I'm on the Acne.org regimen to take care of the mess this sunscreen caused. Avoid, avoid, avoid. Other cons include it pilling like you're shedding skin. 
  6. Pretty normal especially if you are brand new to the regimen. Around week 4, you should incorporate AHA very slowly with a pea sized amount (seriously, don't go overboard at first because it will burn BAD). It will dramatically help with the peeling. Make sure you moisturize well and gently after each application of BP once it dries after 10-15 minutes.
  7. I think it's best to revisit and make sure you are doing exactly what the regimen entails. Are you gently handling your skin? This was a big one for me and once I adjusted my technique to be very light (almost non-existant), my skin was much better.
  8. The BP will pull the acne deep within the skin. It will seem like you are breaking out again but continue with the regimen and you will notice you will start clearing.
  9. Sorry for the late reply, mikepepsi. I've actually been using AHA+ for over a year now consistently and my skin seems to have grown used to it. In fact, my skin looks very even the next day when I apply it. If I use too much BP sometimes, my skin gets dry and flaky. The AHA really helps with the texture. I apply jojoba first and then I apply a penny size amount of AHA all over my face. Any more than that and it just irritates my skin. All in all, my breakouts seemed to have gone away with the AH
  10. I've been using Jojoba for 3 years now and my skin loves it. It's definitely not that.
  11. Thanks, guys. Iggs - I apply a pea sized amount. I've been doing it every other day (too much?). I hope the sides of my nose are just purging otherwise the AHA does not agree with my nose... Lol. I apply it after I apply moisturizer or jojoba. KLM15 - It seems to be agreeing with the rest of my face except my nose... I'm hoping it's just purging.
  12. When did acne first become a problem? When did it get better/worse? Started around 16-17 years old. It got worse when I hit my 20s. What sort of acne do you have? Mild acne. I used to have an oily forehead. On my chin, I get 1-2 zits per month (hormonal). When I stress, I get tiny bumps on my cheeks. I rarely get any acne on my forehead. What other problems do you currently have? I stress very easily. Why do YOU think you have acne? Mostly hormonal and stress-related but I have a fee
  13. I really don't think going on Accutane is worth it for the amount of acne you have, but that's just me. Have you tried the Regimen?
  14. I do agree that diet DOES have a connection with skin but I don't think that it is the ROOT cause of acne. Acne can be hormonal or because your skin is too dry or too oily.
