    Weaning Off Regimen

    First I want to start off saying that the Regimen has worked wonders for me. It cleared up about 97% of my acne in the 1.5 years I was on it. However, I decided that I didn't want to be on it my whole life. I also started to see my face age faster than normal. Although I moisturized very well and always used jojoba oil, I could see my face changing. That is when I decided I would try stopping the regimen. This may not work for everyone, but for those who are afraid of stopping or weaning off the

    Losing hope...week 3

    Acne history: I had been using Proactiv for a good 8 years(biggest mistake of my life) when I started to notice my skin getting duller, little bumps started re-appearing, and my clothes and towels were getting bleached. These are things I guess I had ignored because the product was "working". I slowly stopped using Proactiv and then starting using an all natural line - that's when all hell broke loose. My face exploded and continued to get worse. I tried a few other natural methods and just got
  3. Ive never made a blogpost before, but i thought i really needed to write this down. Ive used the regimen for 2+ years i think. Ive been struggling with acne for 7 years since i was 10 years old. My acne is really on the surface and not really cystic what makes me 'lucky' i guess. But i do have severe acne, it is literally everywhere. And mostly whiteheads. But the regimen worked great for me for about a year. After that my acne slowly came back. I kept using it because of course i wanted it to
  4. I just quit Vitamin B5 around two weeks ago. For some reason ever since I quit Vitamin B5 my skin has gotten even better. I hear acne comes back after quitting Vitamin B5. I am just wondering if there are people that just got cured from Vitamin B5? I am guessing all the people that got cured by Vitamin B5 just went on with their lives and never visited this site again but still I am just wondering if there are any still on this site. Will my acne come back with a vengeance?
  5. So I've been on the regimen for two and a half months now, and it really has worked. My face is like 95% clear, and it's a major improvement from my mild/sometimes cystic acne I used to have. I really want to keep using this, but I just don't know if it's worth it anymore. My skin has never been this dry, it is flaking off in huge chunks, and every day it gets worse. I have tried 10+ moisturizers, including Dan's, and nothing helps. When I use the AHA it gets rid of my flakes for a few hours and

    My Regimen Experience

    Back story first: Developed acne at age 16. Started Dan's regimen minus the moisturizer and face wash at around age 20-21. I'm 23 now. The regimen completely withheld breakouts for me. I suffered from occasional cystic pimples and took FOREVER to heal. I began eating healthy at age 21. Exercise at the same time. I was technically acne free for quite some time. I was happy. Except.. I felt trapped by the regimen. So during the last year of me being on the regimen I began chipping away at the am
  7. Hi there, I was on BP for about 3 years, Differin for about 9 months during that period. I quit BP and am clear as of about a month and a half ago. I quit largely because the photosensitivity was out of control and it was ruining my life. I just use Dan's moisturiser and his gentle cleanser. After quitting, photosensitivity has subsided but I'm still paranoid because I feel like my skin feels tender in the sun even for brief periods. I thought maybe sunblock might have been t

    Okay so a while ago I posted about having flaky skin and it has NOT went away. It only improved a little bit. The actual reason for this post is that I am thinking of restarting the regimen! I am STILL breaking out and it is my 4.5 month using it! I did start with a lot but it was because a pea size just wasn't enough to cover my whole face. I have tried switching moisturizers so the flakyness could stop, but it has not. So, I have a goal of no flakes and almost clear skin before July! I want to

    Going Off Accutane- 21 Days

    It's been 21 days of accutane, today was supposed to be my 23rd, but unfortunately unexpected events occurred that have made me stop taking my 20mg dosage. Now I noticed a lot of troubling things in the very beginning of Accutane, things that I didn't look at too closely but perhaps should have, that rolled into one big problem this week. I am a very stress free person. I believe in being the best I can be and not worrying too much about life in general. Do I hate my acne? Yes of course. Do
  10. Hello! I have been using Dan's regimen for about a year and 7 months. I started using it due to (I'm assuming) severe acne from high stress, and it completely cleared my skin (albeit terribly drying it out the first few weeks). When I had originally used it, I did it morning on night on my forehead (major trouble area, rest of the skin was dry and clear), and eventually I ran out of the cleanser and moisturizer and just started repurchasing the treatment w/ a sensitive skin cleanser to be econom

    Quitting Birth Control (pics)

    Let this be the beginning of my birth control free life. Been takin' a yaz generic for four years. Basically completely cleared my skin up. I only get small break outs around my period or if I have a lot of sugar. Before birth control I had mostly moderate but at times severe acne since I started puberty. I was 20 when I started it and now I'm 24. I'm trying to be more health conscious overall so I'd like to stop taking it and solve my acne naturally. I've heard acne gets a lot worse afte
  12. Hey, guys. It's been quite a long while since I last posted here, so I figured I should update you all with my progress. After a year of being on the Regimen, I quit. The side effects were just too much and I wasn't enjoying looking older than I really was (and appearing constantly sunburnt). I quit the Regimen in January 2012 and here I am now. 11 months later. It's been very hard indeed. I broke out severely a few months after quitting. The breakout I suffered did not respond to any treatm
  13. I have been using the regimen benzoyl peroxide for over 10 years. I am now 42 and after trying to quit using it twice, the third time was a charm. I have learned a lot about myself and acne during this process. After using this product for such a long time, DO NOT just quit. Reduce the amount you use, for example, if you use it twice daily in a certain amount, reduce either down the amount you use one of the times, etc. I used it twice a day in a quarter size regularly. I reduced down to tw
