  1. So in the past week my hands and arms have been drying out significantly. Ever since I noticed I've been applying various moisturizers and lotions and they'll last a half hour or so before it becomes obvious my hands are peeling again. It's all over my hands, and I can't help but pick at it trying to limit the intensity of the peeling. Is there anything I can do to get rid of this top layer of skin? I've tried using a salt scrub to no avail, along with vigorous washing in the shower with a simi
  2. Couple hours ago I posted about my lingering acne after 3 months on the regimen. It's still way stubborn and I have red marks in various stages of fading. Would Sudocrem be worth a shot? Real maverick's opinion seems to be yes, heavily considering it. I did a search but didn't see anything real life changing outside of his one large post on the topic. Any other information I should know before I order some?
  3. I don't exfoliate, and honestly am not sure where to start with that. I'm in college so my diet isn't the greatest, but I do the best I can. I love fruits and smoothies are a regular part of my diet. I've taken 50mg of Zinc gluconate a day for the past couple months in an effort to boost my immune system. After starting I also read it was supposed to improve skin health, but I haven't seen a noticeable improvement from it. I don't wear sunscreen and can't sleep on my back. I take in a lot more s
  4. I didn't even realize it, but the 3 month trial period everyone here recommends trying the DKR for before large complaints came and passed about a week ago. Evaluation so far: My acne started off worse then it is right now, but it was fairly localized normally. Hadn't tried very many products to fix it, Pro Activ mainly, and it generally stayed about the same, with short breaks in between larger breakouts. Now after 3 months on the regimen, it has rotated from several large spots on my cheeks

  6. Pretty simple situation really. I thought I had another tube of BP left, and I've been milking this one till it's very nearly empty, cut in half and everything, and I go to pull out my next one and there isn't one to pull out. Game over. This actually happened a couple days ago, but my credit card was having issues so none has gotten ordered until just a few hours ago. Since I figured out my predicament I've been using a super thin layer at night and spot treating with BP in the mornings, but
  7. I've been on the Regimen for almost five weeks now, and I had to inform everyone here that I'm well on my way to having a clear face! Started with two or three major breakouts that nearly made me quit, but persistence and a bit of encouragement from y'all here has taken my face from anywhere from 5 - 10 moderate whiteheads to the slight red marks I'm dealing with now. And the red marks should fade more as the time between my acne and clear skin lengthens! I'm just pretty happy about the whole
  8. I started the Regimen at the beginning of this month and have been trying to have as high an amount of optimism as I can. I don't have terrible acne generally, 4-8 moderate spots is normal, but I had grown so tired of it and ProActiv never worked, so I'm giving this a try. Now questions .. First, does everyone modify the regimen for themselves? It seems everyone I see posting on these forums is discussing total changes to parts of it, which seems to defeat most of the purpose of the regimen in
