  1. Hello! I'm 5 weeks into the Regimen. I ordered more moisturizer which should arrive in a few days (hopefully), so I've just been scraping out the remnants of the one I have now and using extra jojoba. Is this okay to do? I did notice my face is a little redder than it normally is. I just don't feel like dropping money on a drugstore moisturizer. Thanks!

    From the album: Week 5

    Seriously, I don't know what's wrong with this side. Still, it's on its way. The biggest issue is that there's a cluster of 3-4 bumps (that giant red blotch) under my skin, and I have no idea what they're doing or why they're there. Could be hormonal (new birth control), could be from popping last week, no idea. The rest is PIH.

    Again, hyperpigmentation. Some whiteheads on forehead.
  4. I'm sorry I haven't posted about the past few days. I didn't have time to access the internet this weekend. I'll just quickly summarize how my skin's been doing: Day 25: Again, flaky skin. Even though I was in a van for about 10 hours, I insisted on wearing makeup the entire day. There were travel videos to worry about and such. I bought Tarte's Maracuja Miracle Foundation the day before, which is a liquid. The woman selling me the product was successful in convincing me that liquid f
  5. I just need to say, WOW, my skin was flaky yesterday. I have no idea what happened. I washed my face and flakes came off on my towel! I could've peeled so much of my face off. It was weird, but I suppose it's better to let some layers shed and keep my skin as fresh as possible. Gotta get all of the rest of that buried acne out of there! Speaking of such, I'm very irked by a cluster of bumps under my skin on my problem cheek. The other side of my face is SO much clearer, what's going o

    Day 43: Holding My Breath

    Well, after some much needed moisturizer and jojoba, my skin is back on its way. The swelling is completely gone, and the redness has gone down significantly. Also, the popped areas are still healing. They're not completely gone, but they're looking a lot less angry! I did have to exfoliate with jojoba oil this morning, though. I rubbed a good amount of it between my hands and massaged my face with it in the shower. It works better for me when my flakes are wet; they just come right off
  7. Okay. I just need to vent a little here. I apologize in advance. WHY is my skin doing this? The initial clearing was absolutely a tease. There's this decently-sized red bump on my cheek and whiteheads on both my forehead and cheeks. This is so uncool. I have to admit that yes, my skin is getting less inflamed and these breakouts will heal like the rest, but goodness this is saddening. Especially without the aid of face makeup. I can't stop looking at my skin. Look at my photo

    Day 18: The Flaky Feat

    This morning, I woke up to no new forming pimples, and even better, diminished whiteheads. I was so pleased to see that the popped whiteheads from yesterday healed pretty well, and it doesn't look like they'll be coming back. Thank goodness. The papule near my nose has also shrunk a bit, which is great. I just want to be able to wear makeup today without looking like a bumpy toad. My skin is still extremely dry and flaky, but I'm proud of this progress! This is one of those days on the

    Day 16: And We're Back

    Well, I freaked out yesterday, but it looks like my skin is back to progressing. Most of the areas that were popped yesterday are either now red marks or smaller whiteheads, which I'm fine with. It could've been worse! Of course, my skin is also back to its insanely dry, red, and burning routine. Applying the BP is never bad, but for some reason when I put on the 2 pumps of moisturizer (and 5-6 drops of jojoba now ) my skin starts freaking out and stinging like mad. It definitely needs

    Day 8: Ouch.

    Day 8 has proven so far to be quite the challenge. First, let me just say that the Regimen is still awesome. My skin is still progressing quite smoothly and at the proper pace However, my skin is definitely feeling the increased amount of BP, and it seems to be purging like no other. I don't really mean that it's breaking out. It just seems to be screaming, "EVERYTHING ON ME WILL DIE A PAINFUL DEATH." So, what's going on with my skin? Time to investigate: 1. I did have a mi
  12. Hey! (: So I'm very proud of my progress on the Regimen thus far. My skin is looking a lot better! My red spots are fading and I'm mostly clear (still having minor breakouts every now and then). The only problem is that my skin is still extremely dry. I feel like nothing is helping! I've tried exfoliating with jojoba, I'm using AHA, I have no idea what to do. I've even ended up just scraping at my skin a few times, which is horrible! I don't know how to solve this problem without causing irr

    Popping On The Regimen?

    Hey! Always seem to have a bajillion questions on here, so here goes another one: I've been advised not to remove whiteheads myself, but I'm a bit confused about it. Dan has a page dedicated to "How to Pop a Pimple," so it must be acceptable, right? Although, for the past two weeks I've been removing fully-developed whiteheads (the way Dan instructs), and they seem to pop back up within a week (smaller head 2nd time), or they reappear next to the popped area, like the infection sprea
  14. Hey! Sooo I've been reading certain topics about the moisturizer and how to handle SPF, etc. I bought Philosophy Hope In A Jar SPF 30. It's expensive, but lasts a long time and is completely non-comedogenic, unlike most of the sunscreens out there. It's great! Anyway, does it really matter how one applies the sunscreen in the morning? I usually just mix it in with Dan's moisturizer and apply it that way, but I've been reading comments people have made about how you have to apply the s

    Moisturizer Question!

    Hey all I've been on the Regimen for 8 days! Woohoo! Loving it. I do have some questions about the moisturizer though. I'm using the acne.org products, and I noticed that Dan suggests using 2 full pumps of the moisturizer. This really feels like a TON of product. I don't know if that's because the moisturizer is thinner than most, but it takes a long time for all of it to saturate. I feel like 1-1/2 pumps still is more than enough. Also, when I mix Philosophy SPF 30 with it in the

    WELLL here's 1 solid week in. I'll go into some detail as to exactly what I did this week, since it seems like that's what people like on here. Ya gotta give the people what they want!

  20. Hi everyone, I need your expert advice! I have moderate acne and I have been using Acne.org Regimen for 15 weeks now. I know I have made a mistake in the first week of the regimen, I started too fast with the BP. On the 8th week of the regimen I also started to use AHA at night and it did me a lot of harm than good. I have passed the purging phase and clearing up and breaking out again and clearing up again and so on until now. I seldom wear make up (3 times max a month) and I currently
  21. Okay! So far so good. Today's going to be interesting, though. It's only been two days, but I'm enjoying this. STILL waiting on Dan's products, but the BP's definitely working it's magic, despite my redness/flakes. I mentioned in my previous post that I accidentally popped a pimple...woops! BUT, I put some tomato juice on it, and today there was minimal redness and absolutely no swelling. Lovely! I was so excited about these results that I made a tomato juice/seed mask this morni
  22. Okay, just a heads up, I am EXHAUSTED in these photos. I took them the minute I woke up, not sure why. Try not to be too alarmed. Anyway, yesterday was pretty brutal. I went about the usual day with what I referred to as my "oatmeal face," which was kind of humorous, but also came from a place of grief. My boyfriend reassured me that my whiteheads weren't that bad before I left to go visit my parents, but I was still bummed about it. I knew they were going away, but they could've been a

    Day 31: Clear With A Twist

    I'm pretty sure I've burned my skin. It's nothing major, but it's pink and really sensitive. I know my skin's just trying to get used to the AHA though, so I won't stop. I'm gonna keep trying to find the right amount to use on my skin until it adjusts properly! Especially because it's working! My skin is way smoother, and I can't wait to use makeup for once That's all! Short post via phone since I don't have computer access on weekends. Peace.

    Day 3: The Makeup Is A Lie

    Dan's products have arrived! I'm so excited! I can't wait to update on how they feel/work out, but first, I have some news from yesterday: SO, I had full coverage for my performance last night. I used Bare Minerals powder, and quite honestly, I've decided that I hate the way it looks on my face. I have very oily skin, and Bare Minerals has no problem showing that. I wasn't sure why a powder would make skin oily at first; maybe because I didn't use the matte formula? Anyway, Bare Min
