  1. Thank you for a detailed description of how it all works! Im curious, does this mandelic acid face wash keep your skin clear? And what it the severity of your acne and also if you dont mind me asking, your age? I myself am 22 years old and suffer from moderate acne. I've been on the acne.org regimen for about 1,5 years. I follow the regimen very strictly applying BP twice a day and AHA every third night. This has kept my skin 95% clear, although even after 1,5 years, I still suffer fro
  2. Thank you, interesting post! So you are saying acne is not linked with P acnes bacteria? Based on what sources? Your own opinion? The information on the Acne.org articles are backed up by scientific evidence, saying that P acnes bacteria is linked with acne and especially the severity (https://www.acne.org/the-role-of-bacteria-in-acne.html). I am not saying you are wrong, and neither am I saying that I am right. Im just really curious by your strong statement saying: "it is unnec
  3. This was one of the heaviest readings I have ever read. Please, in the future, focus more on your structure and leave out the caps lock. Now you repeat the same thing like 5 times. Anyway, interesting thoughts, I cant deny that. Also, you seem very "driven" and "passionate" about this, so I appreciate your input. I think more people would be interested in reading this if you would organize your post a bit better.
  4. Thank you for the very detailed post. Yes there is some scientific evidence on the link between diet and acne, however even if I believe that, I have a very hard time figuring out WHICH foods break me out... Do you have any tips and tricks on how to systematically "find out" which foods are safe and which do break out (for example. trial & error)? Also, the evidence out there regarding "acne-triggering foods" is very contradictory. For example, some studies say that people with ac
  5. Interesting. This link between diet and acne has to be EXTREMELY individual. When I stopped drinking coffee completely for about 3 months, nothing really happened. I didn't notice any decrease in acne lesions on my face. So honestly, for my acne, quitting coffee hasn't helped at all.
  6. I can't understand how acne can work so differently in people?? Most sources say that fruit should be good for acne, or atleast not make it worse. But for you fruits seem to have a completely different affect. How can it be so different between people?
  7. Does not fit with the regimen

    If you are on the regimen, this moisturizer isn't the right one. When I applied it after the BP, it started burning and stinging. I tried applying this moisturizer for 4 days but the burning sensation never vanished. Throwed away the bottle.
  8. Thank you for replying! Ok interesting to hear that your red marks have actually faded fast? As I mentioned above, I've had red marks which havent faded away in over a years time... And also, I have been using the glycolic acid (AHA+) for over a year, every third night... I cant understand how my red marks wont fade...
  9. Hey, So I've been using Benzoyl Peroxide 2,5% "The Regimen" for about 1,5 years now. As espected, it cleared my acne to about 90%. Even today I get red when applying the BP and moisturizer. I have also noticed that I have a lot of red marks from previous acne. These red marks wont fade away... I am wondering if the benzoyl peroxide 2,5% prevents the red marks to heal and fade away? So does anyone have any experience with this? Does benzoyl peroxide 2,5% slow down the fa
  10. Thanks for the answer! I read the article, useful information. So you should re-apply sunscreen every 2 hours even if you are on the regimen? Or should I apply every 1 hours since the BP makes my skin more sensitive? Kinds regards, M
  11. Dear Acne.org community, I've been on "The Regimen" for about 1,5 years. I live normally in Finland so "sunbathing" isn't really a thing there. Now however, I'm on my exchange semester in Italy and I was planning on going on a sun vacation to Sicily in June. My question is: Is it okay to use benzoyl peroxide 2,5% and sunbathe? I was planning on getting a good tan so this would require approximately 5 hours sunbathing in 30 degrees Celsius for 5 days straight! Now I do the regimen
  12. Nice results and very interesting! Maybe I should give it a try. I'm already taking zinc supplements (gluconate), but i've never heard of Betaine HCL.

  14. Have you considered trying out the "acne.org regimen"? I have been using benzoyl peroxide for 1,5 years and my face is 90% clear, although I suffer a lot from red and irritated skin due to BP...
  15. I've been on the regimen for over a year and I still get red skin after applying the BP. Haven't find a solution for that yet, unfortunately... I would be glad if anyone would have any suggestions how to prevent getting red face.
