• <p>Just wanted to be one of MANY success stories using the Regimen. I use Cetaphil cleanser, Acne.org BP gel, and Olay Complete and it has worked like gang busters! I am on week 4 or 5. Obviously it has worked well enough that I am not obsessing on how long it has been since my last break out.</p><p>Like you plan clearly states...stick with it and don't sway from the regimen. Like everyone else, I have tried it ALL and I used to get HUGE painful acne, not the little whitehead kind. I jumped the gun a little and put the full amount on and man did that dry my face out. But I throttled back for a week and then worked back up and I am super impressed.</p><p>You and your crew should get a Noble prize or honorary doctorate! Thanks and keep it up. You are changing the world one face (and self-esteem) at a time.</p>

  • <p>Dan I have been suffering with cystic acne for over 16 years(a truly bad case) I have tried many products including retin a (more than once and accutane more than once). I used benzoil peroxide before (years ago) but quit because it dried my skin out so badly. Needless to say many, many scars of all types(boxcar, icepick and keloid) later and I didn't care what I did (to get rid of the scars) . Although my acne is severe the Regimen has worked for me. I use a 10% BP (though). Yeah my skin is extra-extra dry so I use a Sunscreen (which lessens the dried out appeareance and is also keeping my skin from blothching). I have been on it for one month and I have many factors that are possible and probable contributors to the acne, not the least of which is heredity.(I had a family member who was in their seventies and had active, pus filled acne). Well this is to thank you because Until I read about your regimen and it's success I had never even thought about trying benzoil peroxide again. And because of the other members post on Acne.org I have renewed hope after doctors (several), have told me there was nothing more that could be done about my acne or the scarring.(I am dark-skinned african-american).They were wrong. I also feel diet has alot to do with my acne (another factor). Because of posts to the board, I tried needling of one scar and it did in fact raise up, it was indented, it is not level but it looks much better). I am now even studying permanent and camouflage makeup as a career thanks to you and the other members. I even found the courage to write this. Thank you, Thank you. Thank you all.</p>


  • <p>Hello Dan.</p><p>My name is Alexander, I am 16 years old, and I have suffered from mild to moderate acne since I was about 12. I tried numerous products to make the white heads and black heads go away, but to no avail. About a year ago, I found your site, and considered trying your regimen, but had a lot on my mind and forgot about it until about 9 weeks ago.</p><p>I am not a bad looking guy, but my acne caused me to have low self esteem. I realized that I had very low confidence, unreliable friends and no girlfriends (I go to an all boys school), and it was time to change my self image and improve my life, and this began with getting rid of my acne. I found your website again and tried your regimen and it immediatly started working. I wish I had started it 4 years ago, so I never would have had to live through this.</p><p>I am now almost acne free, have started working out, and dress much better. This has improved my self esteem greatly, and thus I am no longer afraid of bad friendships or women. Actually, girls have started approaching me! My social life is the best its ever been, and I feel better about myself then ever before.</p><p>One of the most shocking things I have learned from this is how badly people may judge you based on the fact that you have acne. Since I have gotten rid of my acne, people now respect me much more, I am much more popular, I get invited to parties, and most importantly I feel great about myself. My own friends are coming up to me and asking me my secret on getting rid of acne. Let me remind you that I had only mild to moderate acne, and I can only imagine how it must feel for people who have it worse.</p><p>I want to thank you for putting this website up, and for taking the time to think about the average person with acne. I had given up on curing my acne problem about 2 years ago, yet now I am almost free of it! I wish I could do more to thank you. Feel free to use this letter for your success stories section.</p><p>Thanks again, and God bless you!</p>

  • <p>Hi, Dan, I'm sure you get a ton of these emails a day, but I just wanted to send one to thank you so much for putting your regimen on the web. I am 23 and have suffered from acne since I was about 14. I managed to clear it up for a few years with medication, but about 6 months ago, it came back with a vengeance. I was 23, newly married, and had acne. It made me so self concious and ruined my mood almost everyday. My mother stumbled across your web site about a month ago and I began the program immediately (I was skeptical, of course, but willing to try anything) and within a few days, my skin began to clear up. I have had full results now, and feel so great!! Even the skin that did not have any pimples looks healthier. I am absolutely thrilled with your program and want to thank you for being selfless enough to share it with the rest of us. Sincerely,</p>

  • <p>Just thought I'd write a note about how the regimen has been working for me. </p><p>I used to spend $100's on brands from Dept Stores. I'm allergic to most products.</p><p>My main concern is acne scarring. I'm 30 & figure I'll have acne all my life but the scarring makes it even worse</p><p>Prior to The Regimin:<br />For my mild acne, I used Murad's Acne Complex. I lived in Arizona and I think the dry air helped because I didn't breakout as much with the complex. I used it a long time ago when it first came out and was over $400 (was a teen). But now the complex costs less & I used it religiously in Arizona for 3 years. Still had scarring, when I broke out.</p><p>I moved to California & found that the air quality & the huimidity did a number on me. The Acne Complex actually made my skin worse. My skin was really flaky & oily but would break out in the cheeks and chin area. </p><p>I found the Acne.org site and decided to give the regimin a try with the stuff in the drugstore. I decided to use Baby Magic Baby Wash on my face. It was the only thing gentle enough for my body (other products caused cysts) so I figured I'd give it a try on my face. For the BP, I used the Neutrogena On the Spot. The lotion I used was from Murad.</p><p>After a couple of days I noticed that I needed more moisture so I used the Lachydrin 5 during the day. I noticed a difference within a week. I got a prescription for gel BP from my doc. After the month, I bought Dan Kern's BP (cheaper than scrip & bigger)</p><p>After Regimen:<br />4 mos. later & I added some steps, toning with Bactine & Neosporine on open sores. B/C even with gentle washing white heads popped, treating makes for less scarring.</p><p>I still break out on jawline a little (hands on face, stress) but my skin is soft & smooth & I don't scar as much. (cells turn over is faster, so old scars fade faster)</p><p>My Steps:<br />Cleanse: Baby Magic Baby Wash<br />Tone: Bactine<br />Treat: Dan's BP<br />Spot Treat: Neosporine<br />Lotion: Lachydrin 5 (day)</p><p>I feel like I've got my acne under control.<br />Thanks Dan!</p>

  • <p>Dear Dan,</p><p>I just wanted to say thanks. I have been using your regiment for about 8 months. It has worked wonderfully, thank you so much. It was tremendously generous and kind of you to share with others what you had discovered. I am truly appreciative!</p><p>Thanks!</p>


  • <p>Dan,</p><p>Thank you so much for discovering this amazing regimen - it saved my life.</p><p>I had never struggled with acne until about a year ago when I started college. It happened so fast, it was like my face transformed overnight. Prior to my transition into college, my skin had been next to flawless and I never had to worry. Even through puberty I never had much of an issue aside from an occasional pimple.</p><p>I believe that the suddenness and the overall magnitude of my acne situation sent me into a state of deep depression. It overwhelmed me and I didn’t even want to go out in public. It had gotten to the point where I was blowing friends off and skipping classes because I was so humiliated by what people would think of me. I literally didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin, and I had no idea where to begin as far as treatments went. I tried using tons of different products ranging from those containing salicylic acid, tea tree oil, glycerin, and even benzyl peroxide. All of these products in the past seemed to make my acne even worse- that is why I was so skeptical about this regimen at first. </p><p>Nothing worked. Hear me when I say that NOTHING satisfied me until I began this regimen. Sure monocycline helped my pimples stay smaller and less painful, but I still was not impressed with the quality of my skin. I finally started following the regimen step by step and within weeks I noticed major improvements in my skin. The first few weeks are difficult because your skin really has to adjust to the benzyl peroxide, but I promise you that the regimen works if you stick it out and continue doing everything you are supposed to. </p><p>It has been about 7 months since I started the regimen and I am now acne free. I still get an occasional pimple, but that is expected. I feel beautiful and I am so happy with my skin thanks to Dan : ) A weight has definitely been lifted from my shoulders now that I can focus on my studies without having to worry about my skin. I’m not sure that I would have ever found a treatment had I never come across this website. </p><p>Please believe that you can cure live a normal, happy life without having to worry about acne. This regimen really does work. I wish you all the best of luck; you won’t regret your decision.</p><p>Thanks again Dan!</p>

  • <p>Hi Dan,</p><p>I worked for Dr. Fulton at Vivant for about 2 years as their education coordinator and he had me using so many different experimental products that my acne never cleared up. As a matter of fact, my skin was so much worse and so much harder to clear up after I completely stopped using Vivant. I tried everything and it seemed as if nothing would work.</p><p>After reading your blog and skin regimen, it seemed so simplistic that I figured it was worth a try. 3 weeks later, my skin is perfect, which it hasn't been in over 3 years. I am not having breakout even during my period, which makes me so happy. </p><p>I just want to say "kudos and thank you" for keeping it simple. Keep up the good work!</p>

  • <p>I started the Acne.org treatments about a year ago.</p><p>I'm a 35 year old woman and have had major breakouts since about 17, getting worse in my mid-twenties. I have gone from inexpensive drug store treatments and on-line ordering to very expensive lines; doesn’t work.</p><p>Since I have been using Acne.org my skin has been perfect. I am so excited I want to tell everyone I know, but it is so simple, people seem to think I am crazy.</p><p>Anyways, thank you so much, these products have solved by largest body issue!</p><p>I use the cleanser, treatment and moisturizer in the day and the cleanser and AHA+ at night. As I said, perfect. I've just started to use make-up successfully for the first time in my life. With age marks and many acne scars being able to use foundation will be nice. Please try and develop a moisturizer with some sunscreen.</p><p>Thanks all, thanks again, you rock!</p>
