  1. OK so reading around this place I'm truly amazed at how I can relate to what so many of you are saying. I've only in the last year or so (having been struggling with Acne on my own for 8 years) started to open up and try and deal with my skin. It was just such a source of constant embarassment and shame... oh and dont get me started on mirrors haha... I'm due to be starting Roaccutane in the next few weeks. Nice and timely as it's coinciding with a new relationship that I'm embarking upon an

    AHA makes my face flakier

    Has anyone experienced an even flakier face after using AHA? I've been using it twice a week and find that the day after I use it my face is even flakier.

    Question about AHA+

    Does anyone know if you're still to use bp first before using AHA+ as a nightime moisturiser.??? Dan doesn't mention it in his video. Please let me know asap
  4. What's a good soothing cream for the dryness that doesn't have retinol or AHA or spf, or any other stinging stuff in it? I don't have access to jojoba, but I can go to CVS. I'll probably order some online tonight, but in the mean time, what's a good recommendation?
  5. Hi there, I've been using the neutrogena advanced solution kit and it works really well (a lot like dan's regimen only with a harsher cleanser) but the cleanser has exoliating beads and i thnk leaves my sking too dry so im switiching to dan'e regimen. Anyway with this this kit Ive already been using a lot of benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel. So can i just start out the regimen with the full 2 pumps of bp or do i still have to start out gradually? thanx...and if anyone uses the aha can u tell me how we

    DKR AHA lotion?

    This was a while back, but I remember there being some talk about either adding AHA to the DKR moisturizer, or coming out with a separate DKR AHA lotion. What happened to this? Is it still in the works? Is there some kind of ETA? I know I'm not alone here, there are a ton of people that would buy a DKR AHA lotion. When can we look forward to it? Thanks in advance.
  7. Im currently on my 4th week of ro-accutane. After 2-3 weeks I had my really bad breakout but my skin is improving amazingly daily. Could anyone tell me if im likely to have any more bad patches or will it be a constant improvement. Im on 40mg of Accutane a day and my derm said il be taking it for 4 months. Ive had moderate acne for 10 years and tried all anti biotics etc. Is 4 months long enough everyone else seems to be on at least 6. Now that im on this foods that I avoided such as mil
  8. Hey guys, its Amber. I finished accutane and am going to start taz very cautiously in the next week. Here is my question... since the beginning of May, I have not had a single pimple, so I am assuming that means I am completely purged... Well, is there a chance that taz could make me break out and ruin my accutane clear skin? I am scared.... Please respond guys, I trust what you say, hahaha
  9. So i went to my derm appt... I come home and my father asks me how it went...i said fine...he asked if I got new meds...i said no... To him this means I am stopping everything i suppose... Later on, because this is such a freaking big deal to him...He tells me.. you know I think you should continue taking the medications blah blah.. I know he probably means well, but there is much bigger things going on in the world then whats goin on, on my face.. Its just soo annoying and hurtful.. When i

    I'm sorry for this...

    Well I'm just getting kinda down cause of my IB with tazorac has just not been easing up. I have only been on it for a month so I totally understand that I am in the early stages but I don't usually ever get painful pimples, and now all along my jawline and cheeks they are just growing. I also have tons of little bumps on my forehead now taht look like millia. I would so rather have a million whitehead then the painful cysts and bumps that never come to head....You can never win! I know that taz
  11. after scouring many posts, the reoccurring moisturizers with the most sucess have been the neutrogena healthy skin lotion and aveen daily moisturizer. Both have spf 15 and claim to reduce redness (a big issue for me). Any preferences?? ps what is AHA (Alpha-Hydroxy Acid) and what does it do? With sensitive skin and after being on the regimen for only 2 weeks, is it too early to start using a moisturizer with AHA??
  12. I've been looking for days now for a really good moisturizer(s). My present regime for morning and night: - Cetaphil gentle cleansing bar (w/ facial brush @ night) - BRAGG Apple Cider Vinegar my face actually looks healthy after using the ACV. So far I've read that Neutrogena Healthy Skin Facial Lotion (w/out the SPF) was good since it contains AHA. But because ACV has AHA in it too (??) would too much AHA affect my skin? Also, the make-up I've been using has SPF in it but I was wonderin
  13. Do you ever wonder if anyone at your school comes on this site too? I really am unable to believe that I am the only person in my school who comes on an acne.org (espessially since we have over 400 kids in each grade).. because I was looking around the past couple weeks and there is actually a lot of people with acne problems. I think it would be cool to see someone from my school on here haha. And also.. do you ever get tempted to ask what someone does to their face to make it clear? I ser
  14. I put this thread here because no one in the body acne part of the forum seems to ever be using the Regime. Anyone here using it for body? If so, how do you deal with the bleaching aspect? I'm trying to use it, but I'm so paranoid it's going to bleach my clothes. Does the bleaching power of it stop after having it on your skin for awhile? For example, if I put it on at night and then do not wash/reapply it till the next night, would it still affect any clothes during the day? So far it has
  15. it would be aweome if paula's choice made the BHA liquid in a roller ball form. like the way sometimes lip gloss comes in, but a bigger size. that would be so cool. haha
  16. "Skin Doctor's Gamma Hydroxy is a the ultimate in skin renewal resurfacing. By applying this blend of glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acid, to the skin, the forceful actions of both AHAs and BHAs (Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids) go to work to loosen the ‘cement’ that binds the dead skin in stratum corneum (a keratolytic action), allowing faster shedding of this layer. Through doing this the Gamma Hydroxy moisturises, exfoliates, and stimulates the skin, thereby reducing pore size (eve
  17. I've finally gotten myself some alpha hydrox enhanced lotion to help with the red marks. I'm a little confused and just double checking here. The correct order would be cleanser...AHA...BP...Moisturize? Does the AHA simply just exfoliate and not moisturize at all? Thanks

    I'm 26 years old. A couple of years ago, I was diligently following the Regiement, but found that it made me wrinkle, eventually, I decided that wrinkles weren't worth the clear skin, so i stopped and eventually, I broke out again. I'm strarting to use BP again but I really need to figure out how to tackle this premature wrinkling issue. I'm using a 2.5% aqueous gel (PanOxyl 2.5%), and have extremely oily skin. To the point that I need to wash my face everyday in the middle of the day to get th
  19. So does anyone use MaMa lotion at night or in the morning in replacement of there moisturizer? I haven't been getting any new acne since i've been on my regimen and i want to do something about my scarring. Has anyone tried MaMa lotion in replacement of a moisturizer? It has Aha and Mendalic (sp?) acid in it...

    Hi there I've been on the regimen for a while now, and I'm just wondering if there's an ideal time to wait between each step of the regimen? I tend to vary the time (5-15 minutes, like Dan says) each time I do the regimen. Also, how long does it take people to do the entire regimen (wash, bp, moisturize)? It seems to take me a while. I'm more than willing to take the extra time for this, but it does seem to take a lengthy amount of time. And as far as the lactic acid/AHA goes, how much of

  22. Ok, right now I'm on the 4th week of CSR and despite the fact that my skin has considerably less acne it's unbearably dry. I know that for a complete clearing you need to use a full finger of BP, but I can't seem to get past the half finger mark. Basically if I use any more than half a finger my face gets horribly flaky and dry. I have the Eucerin Dry Skin Relief (5% UREA) but even if I put a lot of it on my skin, it becomes flaky again in like two hours (I can't just put more on every 2 hours
  23. ive been using Neutrogena HSFL (with AHA) on my very dry spots (chin and mouth area) for the past few nights in order to get rid of flakes...... but flakes are still there! does it take a long time for AHA to start working? or is it supposed to instantly remove flakes? I KNOW THIS IS BAD.... but i have manually remove the flakes sometimes with cotton or a q-tip cuz it gets sooo bad.... the areas i do "exfoliate" dont seem to break out tho....*knocks on wood* well on cheerier note, the AHA see
  24. Hey everyone, I'm new here, and I am about to go on accutane...i have a derm appointment tomorrow and i think he's gonna send me to do my lab tests and stuff to get ready for accutane... My acne is not HORRIBLE, i mostly have red scars, but i DO have active acne. The doctor told me im ready to take accutane but i am a little scared with all those horible side effects... i would really like to talk to some people who are done with the treatment or are taking it right now.. it would help me a LOT
