    What are these brown and red spots?

    If you're getting brown marks, I would look into 4% hydroquinone. There are a lot of risks associated with it and you CANNOT use it with Dan's Regimen. I'm using Obagi's 4% Hydroqinone for the past 2 weeks and my marks have faded dramatically. Hydroquinone basically inhibits melanin production. So while your skin stops producing "color" at that spot, you exfoliate your skin and new skin will appear WITHOUT the brown color at that spot.

    Problems six months in

    Sweat comes out your pores and thats where pimples come from and thats where you want BP to be. So if you're sweating, BP is gonna come out. I would suggest adjusting your regimen so you re-apply your BP right after your exercise and then again 12 hours later (this may be hard because its in the middle of the night, but maybe you can just do it first thing in the morning before school).

    Is this the purge?

    I do not think there is such thing as a "purge." I've been on the regimen for almost a year now and it does take a while for your skin to get used to it. Even after 6 months of the regimen, my skin was flaky and felt like crap if I didn't moisturize it. If I do not moisturize now, my skin still feels smooth and no flakes, but of course I still moisturize.

    asian skin

    I have light asian skin and I'm going to try to use hydroquinone to get rid of my brown marks.
  5. Is it effective and OK to use hydroquinone at night without BP and then BP in the mornings/day without hydroquinone? Is there still a danger of stained skin? Or will hydroquinone still be as effective (will I need to keep it on 24/7?)? Thanks.

    brown marks left after acne.

    So spot treat or no spot treat?
  7. Can you just purchase high percentage (4%+) hydroquinone online? If so, where?

    Car Mirror

    Flourescent lighting is the worst! Especially if you're working in an office because it brings everything out PLUS its directly on top of you which means that it will create shadows and make any scars look really deep. Yellow lighting that is coming from the sides (not directly on top) makes your skin look the best, or complete darkness too
  10. If you use the neutrogena lotion w/o spf 15 you can damage your skin and make your acne worse. Since you're already using BP your skin is supersensitive and needs protection from the sun and using an AHA makes it even more sensitive. So you either should use the neutrogena w/ spf15 or not use it at all, but it is highly recommended that you find some kind of protection.
  11. Man, I haven't been to this board in a while, but reading these posts get me depressed and make me not want to come anymore because you're saying your skin is horrible but I would trade skins with you in a second.. =\

    proactiv skin ligheting lotion

    The reason why it is giving some of you guys scarring is because you're probably using it with BP in your regimine. The active ingredient inside the lightening lotion, which is hdroquinone, SHOULD NOT be used with any peroxide (aka benzoyl peroxide).

    CRS for mild acne

    Umm.. why would it help with moderate acne, but not mild acne when mild is less severe than moderate??
  14. ^ exactly.. the reason why you only see posts about things that people ARE doing is because once they get it to work.. they're gone.. i am on my 3rd-4th week of kojic acid for my pih, and it is working, slowly but definitely surely.. the best thing to do while you're waiting tho.. i just to stop caring about them.
  15. how far along are you with the regimen? if you're new your skin needs to adjust still and BP always makes your skin super sensitive so everything burns.
