  1. I've about had it with my acne, i have moderate to severe acne. I get the whole galore, cysts, white heads, clogged pores the whole shebang. My problem is that i freak out and try all these products that aggravate my face even more and its a mess and i end up losing and my face being even worse than before. I feel ugly because my skin never wants to stay clear. I dont want to go on anymore prescriptions and use any drugstore products that just dry my skin out more. I have oily skin and its a lit
  2. Hi guys so I'm really enjoying this idea of me blogging everyday on my skin, its very relaxing for me and its a nice way for me to unwind at the end of the day! Progress: So today I woke up and it was my time of the month, sorry if this is TMI but I thought I'd add it becayse usually around this time I'd get a few more breakouts. I surprisingly didn't have a huge pimple anywhere, but i did notice a 2 or 3 tiny pimples on my forehead but theyre tiny, barely noticeable Also the big under the sk
  3. 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
  4. Night Routine: So I found the solution to the extremely uncomfortable skin problem. Someone somewhere (thank you so much, Sir/Madam) mentioned that exfoliating with jojoba oil before the treatment step was a good way of keeping dry skin at bay, however I was a bit worried that doing that would influence the effectiveness of the benzoyl peroxide afterward. Instead, I used a very generous amount of jojoba oil and massaged it into my skin before doing the cleanser step. I let the jojoba
  5. 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
  6. I wish I had some photos of myself... Just to update on the progress of my current skin cleansing regimen which I have found works well for my sensitive skin. To reiterate, I do have sensitive skin that stings & burns when it comes into contact with certain chemicals. What exactly those are I never know, but I'm trying to be minimalist and more natural in my skin care. For example, I burned myself with a small amount of Vaseline. Go figure. In the future, if I require something to help
  7. Hey guys, So I'm thinking of finally trying jojoba oil for my dry skin. It's gotten so dry that it's almost unbearable to put the benzoyl peroxide on, and the skin flakes are spreading and they're huge and it just looks so bad. My skin is scaly even if I wet it now. I've tried countless moisturizers, even Dan's, and nothing stops the flakes except Cetaphil's moisturizer, which broke me out after one use. I have extremely intolerant skin and get clogged pores from pretty much every drugstore mo
  8. I've been using Jojoba Oil lately which I absolutely love, it's been great for my skin so far and I'd recommend it to anyone. I have however been wondering if Jojoba Oil halts or slows down the process of getting sun tan? I read it's good for sun damaged skin which made me wonder. Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi. I've been buying Dan's jojoba oil for the last four years. I purchased a new bottle about a month ago. When I received it, I noticed the color was a little off. I compared it to my old bottle. Then upon closer inspection, I noticed the oil was a little cloudy & had tiny particles floating around. I opened the bottle to smell it & it smelled like cooking oil. There's another post on this forum with a similar complaint. Anyways, I contacted customer service & included photos. I rec
  10. Hi guys! I’ve been struggling with acne since I was a teenager (I’m 25 now and still struggling lol) but here’s what I wished I’d known in the past. Natural remedies are the best and supplements help a great deal too. For me, I’ve switched to using aloe gel and jojoba oil as my moisturiser and castor oil (anti-bacterial) for my acne. I also use a raw honey, lemon, cinnamon and nutmeg mask once every 2 days. Also, I’ve started taking some supplements because I highly suspect the cause of my acne
  11. hello everyone this is my first ever post as i just signed up for some guidance.. i would say i have fairly mild acne, its not alot in any one area its just spaced out over my face so its not cystic and i dont very often have white heads on my face which is good, although i constantly have blackheads on my nose that are only really noticeable up close. okay so heres my story ive had acne since i was around 15 (im now 20) the severeness has changed a few times.. in june 2012 i suffered a bra
  12. Hi guys! Just checking in. I haven't really been on here for a couple of days since I've been busy with work. I guess I just wanted to give a quick update on my skin and also since I have been on the regimen for a couple of months now...a quick "what I have learned" post. HERE'S WHAT I'VE LEARNED: 1. Everybodys skin is different. And the same product will react differently to different people not only because of their skin types but also because of their skin sensitivity, or where they live, o
  13. Hello fellow acne sufferers, I have been on Duac(benzoyl peroxide + clindamycin) and retin a micro .04 % now for over a year, and my skin is so oily, yet so flaky. I am trying to cure my flakiness. I am currently using cetaphil moisturizer, but it is not doing enough. Here are my options: -jojoba oil -Cetaphil moisturizing cream -aquaphor -cerave pm moisturizer what are your thoughts?
  14. I first started getting severe acne over three years ago that only recently started to subside after I started making grass-fed gelatin a part of my diet. I eat a very plant based diet (no meat or dairy products), workout frequently, have a regular cycle, etc. - so my issues with acne were beyond me. My dermatologist put me on Retin-A that left my skin dry and irritated, and gave me horrible acne scars. I wound up going off of it (after two years) when my insurance expired, and then switched
  15. I've been on The Regiming for almost 2 weeks now. I use Cerave Foaming Cleanser, Dan's BP, and Cerave PM moisturizer. My skin has cleared up very well and i only get maybe 1 pimple every few days now. The problem is the itching and drying. My skin got really dry and the skin has become rough, ever with moisturizer on. I read the glowing reviews about Jojoba oil and i went to the vitamin store and bought some. The first day i added 5 drops of jojoba oil to my moisturizer and mixed it and then ap
  16. I recently ordered jojoba oil again from the website and I was excited to get it. I loved the way this oil made my skin feel and even the slight scent. But this time it came in the acne.org new packaging and it smells awful. It smells like cooking oil now. I have a few organic stores by me but I would purchase the acne.org one because it was the only one that didn't smell like cooking oil. Acne.org's oil had a slight scent that was pretty pleasant and barely noticeable but now I can't stand it.
  17. I have Posted this in the reviews for this website. I would also like some feedback and recommendations from you guys. (: Thank you! First, I want to share my background. I have never had a problem with acne. I have always had very smooth clear skin, with an occasional outbreak. I started washing with proactive in 2006 when I was 18 for prevention of those minor outbreaks (I don't recommend this because it destroys your skins natural barrier). Two years ago, in 2011, I started getting a cys
  18. 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!
  19. I just ordered Dan's BP a few days ago as I plan on using Cetaphil and CeraVe (and sublock in the AM) in place of his cleanser and moisturizer. After seeing some people's issues with their faces turning darker, now I'm really worried! I always thought BP was originally marketed many years ago as a bleaching agent (I mean it definitely does a good job at bleaching my hair line!) before the discovery of its uses for treating acne, so I'm curious as to why this is happening to some of you guys. I a
  20. I have an old bottle of the org's jojoba oil from about three years ago and I have barely used it. Does anyone know if it expires? Thanks.
  21. Last time i ordered jojaba oil i still had some left so didn't use the bottle that came in the mail which was about a month ago. Well today i went to use it and noticed there to be a small patch of brown something looks like mold in the bottom of the bottle. Never have seen this with any of the other times ive ordered jojoba oil. Is it safe to use? or should I return it?
  22. Hi, I'm about to start the regimen - have ordered the kit and am expecting it soon! I was wondering what you girls use to remove makeup, the regimen says just the cleanser but in the past i've just used face wash and it hasn't got all my makeup off so I don't expect it too this time, especially if it's only on my face for ten seconds! I normally just use face wipes to get it all off but I want to try to follow the regimen as exactly as possible to really clear my skin up and I've heard that ap
  23. I bought some yesterday and it has a nutty/chemically smell to it. It's not strong, but I don't remember when I bought jojoba oil years back it having a smell. When I went to the store to buy it they had 3 diff. brands w/3 diff. prices. I bought the cheapest one, maybe that was the mistake.
  24. All right, this isn't going to be long, as I have to go to the dentist soon, but I'm eager for replies and answers! I bought Dan's 8 OZ of Jojoba Oil, BP, and Moisturizer... and I've always wondered, (I've researched the other two products, well, BP at least) what is so benefitial from using Jojoba? I must say, my skin is VERY silky smooth now, and I can see why many so like it! But, what are the overall benefits of me using Jojoba Oil on my face daily? I'm really interested in the answers. T
  25. HAS ANYONE TRIED TO MIX IN JOJOBA OIL WITH THEIR CLEANSER??????????? I have really dry skin and only wash my face once a day.....I read on numerous retail sites that jojoba oil is good for cleaning out pores.....This along with the oil cleansing method testimonies have me curious as to whether or not this will increase or decrease the effectiveness of your cleanser.....ANYONE have any ideas or experience??
