  1. So I've been using Jojoba oil, zinc oxide and benzoyl peroxide for the past week. Zinc with benzoyl does not seem like a good idea since my skin got super dry after I washed it. I've got cystic acne on me cheeks, I believe its from touching/pillow but the oil production hasn't decreased yet and zinc is working like a charm(not sure if it's good in the long-run tho). Has anybody else tried doing this? How can I modify this routine to get more results? btw going to stop using bp and see if anythin
  2. Whenever I apply Cerave + 4-5 drops of jojoba oil after bp, the bp immediately clumps up, turns white, and is just super hard to rub all over my skin. Whenever I mix in AHA+ with the Cerave and jojoba oil, however, this doesn't happen and everything goes on smoothly. Does anybody have any advice to stop clumping and/or an explanation of why AHA+ doesn't cause clumping?
  3. Soooo I am wondering if my acne is getting better or worse, I cant tell. I have a few whiteheads and breakouts, and alot of red spots. I am trying to figure out a way to get rid of them, but everything seems hopeless. My regimen for tonight is Cerave Cleanser, a mix of witch hazel ( 40 drops) and tea tree oil (2 drops ) and moisturizer. I'm I doin something wrong, or is my skin actually healing? Also, whats a good way to get rid of those damned red spots? Thank you guys.
  4. Hi, I've been on the regimen for over 3 months now, and I'm still struggling with flaking. They're always there when I get up in the morning, and it takes a lot of spot picking to make sure none surface throughout the day. I know what you're going to say: use aha! I use Aha every night as my nightly moisturizer, and still there is no difference. I lather jojoba oil over my face after I cleanse in the morning, and before applying Bp. Is there some mistake I'm making that permits these flakes to e
  5. Always checking up on this forum as I've been suffering with acne/blemishes on and off since I was around 15 (am now 23!), but this is my first post.. Just interested to know what experiences you guys have had with certain oils? For instance, I'm pretty sure it was from this website that I first started looking at using oils as a cleanser/moisturiser a few years ago, and I started off using Jojoba after the glowing reviews it had. For the first few days my skin and hair felt absolutely unbelie
  6. Hi! I'm new to this forum but have occassionally came across with discussions here when searched other acne/skin problem related things from the net. I started jojoba oil to my regimen some 2/3 weeks ago. I read many articles where people have praised the oil and finally decided to give it a try since my then current regimen didn't really help with the forehead/large pore problem/oiliness. When my 3rd week of jojoba oil use started my forehead was a mess and is still (ofc). I stopped it 3 da
  7. Hi, I'm a long-time reader, first time poster. I've been on a pursuit to cure my acne without Accutane. I've had acne since I was a teenager (I'm 38, Caucasian, female), and the only reprieve I got was from going on Accutane in my early 20s. My acne came back during my first pregnancy in my early 30s, and I have been battling with it ever since. I've been reading many forums on acne.org for several months now, and I have many of people's suggestions: I'm taking Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5 (in l
  8. Okay, so I've noticed a pattern when I go without shaving for a few days while using the regimen... My skin flakes and dries a lot more! Even if I apply a ton of moisturizer and jojoba oil. My beard just irritates the crap out of me, so now I try to shave as much as possible. I want to know, does this occur with you also? Or is it just a random occurrence? Thanks!
  9. Hi all-- I've been using tazorac for about 3 weeks. I was using Clenia facewash as well but it is too drying. I wanted to see if jojoba oil would moisturize my skin and also help with my acne so I started using it about 4 days ago. I think my acne is starting to calm down (who knows from what). I've been using the jojoba in the morning with my moisturizer SPF and also at night before my tazorac. I read that putting on moisturizer before tazorac is good to do (from the tazorac website), but I
  10. A few set-backs since I last wrote. #1) that moderate pimple turned into a cyst yesterday. It came to a head last night but little came out when I tried to pop it. Tried again this morning & had better luck. Exciting because it should flatten out now right? Wrong. This evening, it remains raised in all of its inflamed glory. However frustrated I am, I'm distracted by issue #2) DRYNESS. FLAKINESS. SCALES. out of nowhere, my skin has gone from taught from the BP to full out scaly and flaky.
  11. Hi All, I have been on the regimen for about a month this time around, I used the regimen for a while about 5 years or so ago, I can't remember why I stopped (I think because it was just too much hassle and my skin wasn't that bad at that point). My skin is super dry, tight, kind of sore, wrinkles look way more pronounced (I am 31) and I am still breaking out I am using probably 1/2 the full amount of BP morning and night, 1 full pump of moisturizer (even 1 pump takes forever to absorb for
  12. I have been satisfied with the acne.org jojoba oil, however I am a bit worried that something is affecting the oil. It has begun to form dark floating precipitates in the bottle. It looks pretty weird/gross and the dark bits even come out onto my hand and this worries me. Does anyone know of this happening, and if not, I would like to look into finding out what steps I can take to correct this (i.e. return for another bottle, or simply ignore the weird goopy precipitates). Thank you for your
  13. I started a new regimen almost exactly a month ago, and my face has exploded since then. Not all at once, but it definately has gotten much worse. Attached are pics from a month ago (day 1 of new regimen) and a pic from today (day 34 of regimen). Is this normal/good? Yes, my skin is peeling quite a bit and yes, it hurts!!! The reginem I am on is 100mg minocycline morning/night, benzyol peroxide and clindamycin in the morning and benzyol peroxide and differin at night. Yes, I cleanse my fac
  14. Using advice from this forum, I have tried using jojoba oil in several ways, from using it in moisturiser, as a scrub, with face wash, as shaving oil etc. I have had some success in combating flakiness, but not total. However, one thing I have not seen mentioned on this forum, but I have heard elsewhre, is mixing it with the BP. Has anyone had any experience of this or think there is any reason why it may not be effective at reducing overall flakiness? Living in the UK, I have to use panoxyl
  15. Hi guys, so, it has been hard. You know, we are in the New Year and I really want clear skin. I started my New Year crying because of my cystic acne. I am extremely exhausted because of how much time the acne.org regimen takes. Plus, my skin just seems to not get better at all. So, I have decided to try something else other than the acne.org regimen. With much research, I have decided to use these products: - Cerave Cleanser - Thayers Witch Hazel with Rose Petal - Dead Sea Mud Mask - Jojoba
  16. Hi!! dans fash wash doesn't fully remove my makeup. Is it ok to use the Miceller Cleansing water with a cotton ball first to remove the makeup, then begin the regimen?
  17. Hello all, I recently made a review on Jojoba oil and whilst writing I thought I would continue a sort-of blog as I've learnt so much from others that I feel a duty to give back and hopefully, this will help somebody. Ok, this is going to be long. I've put a summary at the bottom. I decided to give a long explanation as that way perhaps more people can relate to different bits of details. I'm 23, male & have cystic (inflamed) acne. I have had very mild acne since 16 (1-2 every mo
  18. hello everyone! there's malaysian out here? hope to find this solution from you guys. my face is really2 flaky at this moment and i cant find jojoba oil near my place. so, there's any local blogshop that sells jojoba oil or any places that i can go and buy it? i live in malacca. hope to get any reply just wanna share here, today is really2 knocked me down. i just went out to the groce shop and there was couple of guys approaced me. one of those guy asked me where the Abbey village, and ye
  19. Hi all, I have been fighting with my acne for years. Looking in the mirror and for the first time feeling my acne is under control and confident is amazing. I want to share with you all, especially all the Australian regimen users what I use and what has worked for me. Please note this is my variation on the regimen. I tried the acne.org cleanser, and moisturiser, however the products I am now using worked best for me. Cleanser - Dr Wood Black Soap . The most gentle cleanser, and really gets
  20. Hi! I would like to post my experience regarding Jojoba Oil. I had been using Jojoba Oil for 3 months already but stop using it on the third month. This is what happened: First month- acne started to clear, flare uo and existing cystic acne started to fade away, as well as the few comedones on my temple area. Second Month- few small bumps are starting to come out. I didn't mind since its not so obvious anyway. Third Month- I started to get a lot of closed comedones (its color isn't reddi

    Acne.org tips

    Some tips for using the regimen that I have found thus far: Firstly- the key is to follow what Dan says and not just use the products how you've always used acne products if you want it to actually work. 1) For me, the thick layer of benzoyl all being applied and lightly smeared and then the thick lotion being applied and smeared lightly (after the benzoyl dried of course) made me feel really sticky and goopy like I had a thick layer of stuff on my face. So to help with this I applied (still
  22. Can I use argan oil instead of jojoba oil with the regimen? Jojoba oil is really hard to find and I don't want to order online.
  23. It's been nearly two years since I started the regimen, and no, this is not a success story (bummer, right?). Here's my problem, my face is STILL red. The difference in skin tone between my face and my neck is super obvious. Neck skin is a slight tan and my face is a tomato. Gross. Last week I dropped from 1 pump morning and night to just under half a pump. Very slight reduction in redness. I'm still suffering from acne but I've "given up" on being 110% clear all the time, the regimen for the
  24. Hi, i've recently started the regimen and am having issues with dry skin. My skin is not ovewhelmingly dry - I suppose long term use of proactiv which contains benzoyl peroxide has got my skin pretty used to harsh products, but it's certainly a little flaky and tight with the benozyl peroxide. I'm having real issues finding a decent moisturiser. All moisturisers I currently had or have bought have contained comedogenic ingredients. I am using aveeno daily lotion which is labelled non comedogeni
