  1. I've been on the regimen for almost 2 years and I still combat dry skin. I think it's the nature of the beast. In the winter it's the worst! I mix 2 lotions together and use jojoba too.
  2. I've been on the regimen since September 09. It's been 6 months and I still have flakes on my lower cheeks and jaw line... good luck. I use jojoba morning and night with my moisturizer. The best I've found so far is Cerave Moisturizing lotion. Nothing I've tried has gotten rid of all the flakes. It is also been a cold winter where I live.
  3. ALRIGHT! Finally! I took pictures!!! Here are updated pictures of my face condition since starting the regimen on Sept 1st, 2009. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v72/tarafsu/12010.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v72/tarafsu/12010-3.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v72/tarafsu/12010-2.jpg You can see some flakies and a little redness still.
  4. I will post some tomorrow morning once I've used the cleanser. You won't be able to see the flakes, but you will see my current state and my hyperpigmentation. I'll make myself a note not to forget!
  5. To combat the flakes/dryness, I would personally look into jojoba oil. It solved my problem and I've been a regimen user for a year and a few months now. I do use jojoba oil, it's not working.
  6. Update: 1/12/10 4 months have passed since I restarted DRK regimen. I am pretty clear. I have never been without any pimples though. They do come and go quicker I must say. I still have hyperpigmentation on my cheeks. I've been using a little of Dan's AHA on them to see if it helps, but it's hard to tell when you see yourself everyday. I am still super flaky as well. During the day I can keep the flakes down until about 5pm when I smile they flakes show up. I use Cerave hydrating lotion and 3
  7. Hi there everyone... thought I'd give a status update. Still haven't been 100% clear, maybe 90% on some days. I always have 1 or 2 pimples. My face still has a tint of red... I started on the DKR reg again Sept 1st, 09... so that makes this week/month week 16, month 2.5 months approx. I guess I thought it was longer :-/ I'm still flaking on my lower cheeks every single day. I use 6-8 drops of jojoba with my moisturizer morning and night and its not helping them go away. I think I'm going to
  8. I've tried that on two separate occasions, the next days to follow that pimples pop up :( I suppose I'm a two application girl...
  9. Tried this... didn't work for me... just irritated my face and I still had flakes. I did NOT rub hard at all! I was "super gentle" like Dan says to be ;)
  10. Unfortunately, when I go down to one application, pimples come through... :( Do you do your 1 application in the morning or night?
  11. Sorry its taken so long to write back. I've been busy with school, work, and buying a house! go me! Anyways... I've been doing well. With the moving, I wasn't able to do my regimen twice a day and it's showing this week A couple pimples are coming up. Stinkers! I use Alpha Hydrox Foaming Facial Cleanser (its $6.99 at Ulta) I use Proactive's repairing lotion 2.5% (dan's makes my face really red, also, I get it off ebay for $11 or something like that) I use CeraVe moisturizing lotion ($12.99 at
  12. Does it help with flaking then if it causes you drying? That doesn't seem right? I was going to use it 2-3 times a week at night to see what happens. Did it break you out at all when you added it to your regimen?
  13. Lately, at night, I have been washing my face with alpha hydrox foaming face wash and then I use a lot of bp (like one finger full) and then a little bit later i put on some aha gel 10%. Then in the morning i use the face wash again, aha gel, wait for it to dry and then i use the olay regenerist deep hydrating lotion. My skin has been looking great, the marks are fading (from the aha, i think) and it has not been dry at all. Maybe you could try that? Are you using Dan's AHA? Last time I us

  15. I'm coming to the end of 8 weeks and I flake on my lower cheeks like crazy. Some days are worse than others. I do the regimen exact and use jojoba in with my moisturizer. If anyone can come up with a better solution, please let us know. I've even went down to using BP once a day for 2 days to see what happened, I only got a couple pimples... still flakey.
