  1. I was under the impression that acne took several days / weeks to actually form, so if you did experience a breakout wouldn't it occur several days later and not the day after? Also if you followed a regimen wouldn't you be able to treat the breakout before it occurs? I gave up drinking several times and I really saw no difference, also theres a point where you give up so many of lifes vice and you have to wonder if you are actually living anymore? moderation seems to be the key for me.

    AHA regimen

    To be clear, I am not on the DK regimen anymore. I am only using cleanser and AHA, and tea tree oil over what looks like infected pores. I have choose this route as I do not get hormonal acne anymore. If you believe you are still experiencing hormonal acne I would recommend getting on the regimen and staying on it. However, if you suffer from none inflamed, comedonal acne, I would suggest trying this, if you can deal with an initial breakout. I am on about 2.5 weeks of AHA usage, sometimes twice

    AHA regimen

    To the post above as well, wouldn't that be a lot of exfoliation, wouldn't that be irritating? Ok I just wanted to update, its been a week since I started using just cleanser and AHA+. The first week was really brutal, I got all the initial breakouts, plus the breakout I had gotten from using an electric razor (one of those self clean ones...that I took out while it was cleaning... ya not smart) but it felt like it all had to come out. Boy did it ever, and as you can imagine everyday was a stru

    Well I mean Dan thats a great explanation and thanks for weighing in, I was hoping you'd shed some light on your decision. Your fight against acne really is from all directions and I really appreciate that. I like the idea of the sticker, but ultimately I just pull the whole thing off anyway. So from my point of view I guess the cost increase wouldn't be worth it, for me anyway. I guess I'm for discreteness, I'm a very private person, but your reasoning makes perfect sense. I also respect that

    AHA regimen

    I know exactly the kind of break out you had then, I have the exact same thing right now. Do you use AHA once or twice a day?

    ahh bummer, thanks anyway! Looks like I will have to find out the hard way. I'll report back in 10 years.

    Well, I explained the difference for me, its the mental aspect. Anyway, thats probably just me, but posting on a forum is free right? Thought i'd see if there was anyone else who agreed, and I believe there is. I guess I would just say its the Dan Kern Regimen and they should look it up and completely avoid the subject of acne, if anyone actually were to ever ask that? But your right I'll just color my whole face in with a sharpie, thats much cheaper.
  8. So I've been fairly active on the board ever since I had this massive breakout after remaining clear on the regimen for about 4 years. I always got these really small blemishes, that I always thought were just pimples, but they lasted for weeks, where as my hormonal acne would last a few days. So I began questioning BP, and went off. I had a bit of breakout after a week, and freaked out and tried to pop everything. Terrible idea obviously, but anyway I decided to go back on BP. I have no idea wh

    I don't really see it as a big deal either, but I highly doubt the cost of printing up a new logo would hike the price up then more then a few cents. Thats more of a set up cost that would be incurred once. DKR would cost less to print then acne.org, actually, I really doubt there would be a difference. I'm more on the same lines T.J., if I go somewhere, its embarrassing to have it right out there. It's nothing I want to discuss with my friends, it makes things very awkward. I was pretty clear f
  10. Also man, a word of caution, if you are just starting the regimen, especially for hormonal acne, I would avoid the AHA for a bit. If you suffer from small blocked pores, then AHA or BHA is the way to go, but if you have acne, especially if your still in your teens, I would not use the AHA right away. Its a great way to exfoliate, chances are though you'll be doing enough at first by washing your face and shaving, that kind of thing. The regimen is a full on exposure to chemical, the less you me
  11. Dude, go up and check out the store at the top of this page. There will be a link under the description to all the ingredients, this site couldn't be better documented, you just have to spend some time surfing around. I'd recommend watching all the tutorial videos, and I would strongly recommend breaking down and buying the products online if you can, dan formulated everything to a very basic, stripped down version, with less variables, eliminating potential irritation.

    Thats 4 votes danny boy! lets keep this one alive to see what kind of response we get. I mean I understand if its completely unfeasible financially, but you know, I'm sure this stuff can be changed at the end of every fiscal year or whatever. it can't be that costly for a change up of ink? I'm not really into ripping my labels off and drawing a big 1 2 and 3 down the bottles, its like I've got some home brewed skin care products laying around my house. We love you dan, get your name out there, I
  13. Listen, I've been on these products for some time now. Recently I went off,rightly so, to see if perhaps the small pimples I was getting was perhaps from me clearing up and using the regimen was simply causing irritation. I regret the decision haha but whatever, I'm back on, I know it works, so I should be alright. However, as much as I hate going through the process of the regimen, I think what bugs me the most is the fact that whenever I go somewhere, and whip out the bottles they say ACNE rig

    Acne Blitz

    I'm completely dropping this regimen. After being off BP for a few days its clear my acne is comedonal. Its characterized by small whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and around it. My skin seems to be purging on one side of my face, around my facial hair area. I'm going with Vista on this one and moving to a BHA regimen as it appears my problem is no longer moderate acne, but clogged pores. It makes sense, because the small breakouts (1 - 2 non inflamed blemishes) I got while using BP would st

    Acne Blitz

    So this is about day 2, I noticed my skin is evening out, my complexion is going from red to white again. The scaring from the last breakout is clearing up, and I have had maybe one new whitehead since then. I don't believe the cleanser is doing anything for me, and since Alternavista suggest BHA, I'm going to try a cleanser with BHA in it. While I understand it won't be as effective as something that stays on your face for the full day, I think starting small and working my way up would be a go
