    i am so sad

    i've been on the regimen for a month now. i follow it exactly. i was starting to see results, but i just got such a bad break out, it sucks. i was using AHA to help with the dryness and flakes, but I stopped because I think it was contributing to my recent breakouts. my face was also burning and red, but since I stopped applying AHA (it's only been about 2 days since i stopped) my face isn't as red. it's still dry though, and i flake like crazy only around my mouth. help
  2. The foaming wash and the gel So far so good Morning: Wash with AHA foaming wash then put on gel where my skin seems dry patches Night time: Wash with AHA foaming wash wait 1 hr then put on my retina/tazorac crossing my fingers My problem seems to be dead skin clogging my pores and getting nasty cysts =(
  3. I have no live acne anymore but am FULL of stubborn red marks..does using a scrub help fade them?? I dont want to add new things like AHA or anything cuz i have very sensitive skin that will break out if I add anything new..I've used St Ives scrub in the past..will it help fade the marks???
  4. AHA tretment did not work after 5 weeks. This is something simular but stronger, right?

    dry, itchy, red skin?

    Anyone know how to help heal severe dry skin? I put bp gel under my chin cause i had a few blemishes there and I guess I must have put some on my neck as well. Next thing you know my neck was all itchy and red. It almost looks like I got sunburned there.. but nowhere else. I've tried baby oil, lucerin moisturizer, aloe vera gel.. and well they all seem to work, but I want it to go away quicker! Oh and I used AHA on my neck and that stuff burrrrrrrrnnned! OUCH!
  6. Im following dans regimen quite closely, but using an AHA 5% mud cleanser in the evening and using an AHA gel in the daytime to spot treat. at the moment this appears to be working, but as with lots of things, espically SA, I fear I will get immune to its effects and i'll just breakout again, even if the bp generally keeps things under control. I have a summer ball in 2-3 weeks and im shit scared i'll have a huge breakout, has anyone experienced anything like this with AHA? i've been using the g

    goin swimmin tomorrow

    Allright, I'm going swimming tomorrow because its going to be 95 out. I'm using the eucerin skin renewal moisturizer and bp in the morning, and at night I use bp then the walgreens AHA cream then the moisturizer. So if I go swimming tomorrow I'd rather just put a sunscreen on and skip the regimen in the morning but even with sunscreen is my skin still going to be harmed by the sun due to the sensitivity from the bp+aha? I plan on using SPF 40 I believe.
  8. I've been using AHA for about a week and a half now, and have been breaking out badly. From reading the boards, I know this is normal, especially since I've used BP for over three years and this is the first time I've really stopped using it. But I'm going to be having pictures down in a few weeks and I'm nervous that the initial breakout will still have its effects. For those that have used AHA, how long is the intital breakout?
  9. Has anyone tried Clear Zone Acne System from CVS? I've been using AHA for the past month after using BP for a few years and it's just not working out, so it's back to BP. I've read about the Clear Zone system but I haven't actually read a review, so if anyone has tried it, any help would be appreciated.
  10. Hello, can mod/admin make seperate sections for each regimen type of log? For example, one for AHA one for BP one for Accutane one for Misc or w/e? Because its becoming very cluttering, I'm doing dans regimen and I go over dozen of logs that I'm not interested it (accutane), i would prefer to view logs of people that are doing the same thing faster. Please voice your opinion on this

    Dove Soap

    Lots of dermatologists recommend Dove moisturizing soap to use as a facial cleaner. Dan, do you support this notion? I would assume so - because it’s a mild cleanser. But, I can’t imagine not ever using a facial exfoliator though with Dan’s regime. Will I not ever need to, if I’m using an AHA product?

    Red bumps on lip?

    Hey, Well for a few months now i've been getting some painful little acne on my top and bottom lip, It comes back in the same spot most of the time. They hurt when you slightly bite on them, just like any acne i suppose, Im not sexually active, Still pretty young but I do kiss a little bit. I'm just starting to get concerned about the whole thing and I want to know how i can clear my lips up, They have little red blotches too. I took a pic but its not that good, haha, but it does its justice. Ho
  15. welll i just came back from a dog beach in hb cali.. its pretty kewl dogs everywhere.. but thats not the point haha. i digged down till its wet sand. i put it in an empty water bottle. i was thinking of using it as an exfoliate? well i asked my aunt and she said that it can work. what u guyz/girlz think?
  16. .....but she already has a boyfriend. *awwww.............* Anyway, I think they make a good pair, they fit each other. I was just glad I saw her, so no need for me to cry haha. I hope she isn't aware that I'm stalking her, which is what I'm doing haha everytime I see her, I follow her around, observe her every move... She's not like most girls in school, most girls are loud, kind of vain, but she is not. She is simple, quiet, and good-hearted, which are what attracted me to her. Even thou
  17. I have just started the regimen on Monday, I use Neutrogena oil control foaming cleanser, could this be a problem? My real question is when should I switch from using my current moisturizer which is complex 15, to the Eucerin skin renewal moisturizer with AHA?
  18. Hey all, Well, it's been a month (give or take) since I finished my 6 month course of Accutane. My reactions are... well, mixed. Sorry if this ends up being lengthy, I just need to vent I guess. My oil has come back almost entirely, which is really frustrating since I just experienced 6 months of the glory that is "normal" skin while I was taking Tane. Now my skin is oily when I wake up every morning, and after applying makeup I'm greasy within half an hour - just like usual. *sigh*. I'm prett

    neck question

    ok so i figured out that applying alpha hydroxy to my face before bp was the answer to all my dryness problems, but i still need to find something to do that with on my neck... the aha stuff just makes it red and irritated and very dry, so i've been using neutrogena moisture with spf 15 before and after bp but this still leaves my skin so dry that i need to take 1-2 nights of bp off so i just need a good non-aha moisturizer, open to any suggestions, thanks
  21. Has anyone used this for red marks and as a moisturizer? It has AHA in it. Can someone let me know if it will break me out? thanks
  22. I'm intrigued by Ahava products, which contain minerals and mud from the Dead Sea. Does anyone have experience with this stuff?

  25. Hi, I have had acne since 15 and now I am 23 yrs old. I have found this recipe to treat acne half a year ago and it works for me(hopefully for everyone else) Before talking about skincare products I used, I would like to share this traditional recipe : Ingredients 4 bittergrounds (small one, slightly a little larger than your palm) 2 cucumbers Take out the seed from the bitterground . Blend it in a blender with the cucumbers or add sugar if u find it too bitter. I drink and eat everything.
