  1. Ive been lazy and been buying it at the supermarket. Name-brand is about $14 for 10 pills... But I bought Store-brand for $17 for 30 of them. So, not too pricey... Thank you, I also heard costco has it for crazy cheap. heitea if it's histamine related... what is it causing my body to freak out in the first place? It's stopped my back, scalp, and face acne... or is it that I'm still technically getting acne, but my body doesn't respond by creating inflammation anymore?
  2. Just an update, I've still been on it since this post and I'm incredibly clear... like it's been years since I was this clear. If I skip a single day though, I start to breakout. My sister started also, she's 40 and still has acne, and she said it's also been helping her. o.O
  3. Hey! Long time no talk.. So here's my situation. I've had acne for 11 years, and have been on the regimen for about 8. Sadly, it's never completely stopped my acne, it just helps a bit with the healing process and it stops white-heads. Anyway, I got bit by some flees a few weeks ago, and I read that Claritin helps with the itching, so I took some for 4 days... During this time, I was also kinda sick and lazy and didn't use the regimen. Normally, my acne would explode. But... it actually i
  4. I agree! I just have to accept that the results I have now are the best it's probably gonna get. And they are pretty good results Also, your avatar is pure win. Just sayin'
  5. Thanks for the comments guys! AcnePwns: I know what you mean... I don't scar so much anymore, but I get red/brown marks that last for months =/
  6. Ohhhh.... ok Thanks! It was driving me nuts lol
  7. Thanks! I don't really necessarily have secrets... But, what I do: Morning: Wash face, apply AHA, immediately apply BP, immediately apply a couple drops of Jojoba oil. I dont let it dry first, because if I let the AHA dry, it tends to ball up on my face. The Jojoba oil helps them absorb anyway. Night: Rinse face, apply a higher amount of BP, and a higher amount of Jojoba oil.
  8. Hello everyone, if you check my past posts... there's a lot of depressing things... but finally, I can post something that's happy! I'm FINALLY comfortable with who I am... living with acne. I'm now 23 years old... I started here almost 5 years ago. And, I still have acne. The difference? I've done a complete 180 about my feelings about it. I no longer worry about having a few pimples or red spots... my confidence is so much better. Why? Honestly... IDK why I'm becoming more comfortable. May
  9. I just got a notification email stating I had a new comment on one of my gallery photos that I posted about 2 years ago. But, I can't figure out how to view i! I go to the image, and it says: Comments: 2 But, how do I view them? Any help would be greatly appreciated
  10. Just an update to this... yea, its old... but figured I'd update.. So, the nurses regime just made it worse... The Retin A did absolutely nothing. Didnt even make my skin peel, or burn... and I was using it once or twice a day o.0 I must have some non sensitive skin. Also, I found out that pills are only temporary, and must be stopped after a while. Well, if I have lifetime acne... whats the point of even risking destroying my organs for a temporary cure? It didnt even help after a full prescri

    Me now with an ALMOST clear face

    Have been on the regimen for 3 years
  13. Hey guys! I have been gone for quite a while... so I wasn't sure how to re-appear, so I'll re-introduce myself. I'm a 22 year old Male, I have been on the acne.org products since 2006, and they have worked wonders for me. Prior to use, I had horrible acne, with white-heads, systs, all that fun stuff. But with the change to using Acne.org AHA, BP, and Jojoba Oil twice a day, it has gone down to 4-5 bad areas, and they only turn red, and go away after a few days. No more infections and such. But
  14. Hello! So.. about 5 days ago I got a really bad breakout of Pustules on my face.. I normally almost NEVER get any white-head acne like this.. usually just bumps that go away in 2-3 days... but randomly I broke out like crazy with this. I first got on at my upper lip, which actually swelled my entire lip up, and one below my bottom lip between my mouth/chin... They were EXTREMELY painful.. both to touch, and radiating. I haven't changed off of the regimine at all.. so no idea why this has happe
  15. Sounds good, BUT... using a sterilized needle/sharp object is better, and let it drain itself, and rinse it out with water. Pushing on the skin can break blood vessels and cause pain/infection and only make it worse... so pushing until it starts to bleed a lot is also not the best. Either way, popping is not best.. But sometimes, it is indeed necessary...
  16. Hello everyone! I have been on the regimine for about 3+ years now. I'm a 21 year old Male I currently do the following: Morning: Wash face with regular Bar Soap(Used to use the cleanser, but apparantly my skin is not that sensitive to soap/chemicals, so after almost 2 years, realised it was a waste to use for ME anyway) Apply DK AHA(This stuff is magical!! Probably decreased my acne another 25% or more on top of BP!) Wait 15 minutes Apply DK BP Night: Wash face with Bar Soap again Apply a b
  17. Sorry if I am necro'ing this... But I have been on ibuprofen prescription for more than a week for a leg injury My acne has completely stopped. Not sure if it is relate to the meds, injury, or not shaving for a week though. I thought shaving was why, but even my forehead hasn't broken out. So maybe my body is too busy healing my knee to make acne, or its the meds. Ither way... I'm 20, and am on 600mg 2 times a day. The person who made this thread sounds to be much younger, and I am stressing
  18. Ill try Keep note though... I have very limited problems (As you can see from my new avatar) So.. I may not be the best judge. I dont have very sensitive skin or anything. But, seems to be working well so far. I wouldn't put it on if you get film buildup though. just make sure you use a small amount of AHA.. then wait maybe 10 minutes or so.. then do the BP. That's what I do. I'll keep ya updated though.
  19. Hello again, Ok, I've been trying now for a while, and yes. You don't need as much as you think.. just a pea size, and as soon as it hits your face rub it like CRAZY all over... and you shouldn't have any film. Ive been doing this for a while, and no issues. Just do half a face at a time, so half a pea on the right, half on the left. I even use it in the day now, I just first use aha, then BP then moisturizer because the AHA doesn't get rid of all my flakes. Works well. My skin looks much more
  20. Hello! Well, this morning I did as suggested. used about a pea and a half for my whole face. and rubbed it VERY quickly as soon as it hit my face. No film But does such a small amount actually do anything??
  21. Thank you! I will try your suggestions. My skin doesn't usually absorb things well (Most regular lotions like lubriderm, for instance) wont absorb into my skin... so we'll see Its just a bit confusing, because dan says to rub it until its all absorbs, except it never absorbed. Ill let ya know how it goes.
