    How long should we give the regimen

    My 17 year old son has just finished week 7 of the regimen and added in the AHA a week ago. One side of his face has shown some clearing, and a bit on the otger side, but the chin area on one side still has some active stuff, he's also had new breakouts around forehead hairline and middle of forehead above nose.His face also looks a bit pink. Should we keep going?
  3. I have started using the Regimen consistently about one and a half week ago. I follow the instructions precisely. Unfortunately, I have been experiencing some (known) side-effects of the benzoyl peroxide. Using the Cleanser? No problems at all! However, when I apply the benzoyl peroxide on my skin, it starts to burn/sting after some seconds. This is an unpleasant but manageable feeling and it is supposed to dissappear after my skin gets used to benzoyl peroxide, so I hope it does... When the
  4. My 17 year old son has been doing the regimen for 4 weeks now. Although the sides of his face started clearing after about week 2, he started breaking out around his chin and lower face area pretty bad so he's getting frustrated that its not working and wants to give up. I know that you are supposed to introduce the AHA after a month, so I just want to know if its still ok given that he's not significantly clearer yet? Also, he has used the regimen before with good results but this time he start
  5. Hi guys I started the regimen nearly 3 years ago I had really bad skin that came out of nowhere all over my cheeks and chin it Took almost 9 months but I was completely clear didn’t get any spots and hardly wore make up. I still used the regimen but ran out for a while so didn’t use for about 6 months but stayed clear. I then started getting a few spots here and there so started it again about a year ago. I now keep getting spots on my chin mainly my right side they clear up really qui
  6. Hi guys, it's my first time ever posting here so I am not sure if this is the right board to post this on but here we go: So three weeks ago I was on my way to my holiday abroad, during airport security my face wash (Cetaphil oily skin version) got thrown away as I wasn't allowed to take that much liquid in my hand baggage. I thought to myself meh okay why don't I try washing with only water for the next week and continue to apply my antibiotic topical (chlyndamycin lotion). I noticed that
  7. Should I add in an under eye cream as the final step? I know the eye area is sensitive.
  8. hellooo, I finally found the routine that helped me clear my cystic acne (on my cheeks) and I just wanted to share it with those who has tried everything (like me) but nothing seems to work and believes that Accutane might be their last resort. NOTE: this is what worked for ME, thus, it may not work for some people. anyway, the key to this routine is diet. - no milk (this includes any kind of milk eg soymilk, almond milk), well, occasionally, I would have food that consists of milk, j
  9. hey I've been using the regime for a year now. Some of my acne has cleared up but not all of it. My skin is oily in some areas and unbearably flaky and dry in some which all started after i used the regimen. MY skin still stings from using BP. I use two pumps because I've been using the regimen for so long but i don't think its still suppose to burn. I follow everything exactly also i use AHA. should i decrease the amount of bp that I'm using? for reference I'm 16 years old with moderate acne t

    Regimen newbie- HELP!!

    Hi everyone! I’d reallllllyyyyy appreciate some help. I’ve paid A LOT of money for the acne.org regimen products as I live in the UK but I can’t bring myself to actually start the regimen Hear me out: Even though I’ve heard all the amazing success stories I’m really worried the regimen will mess up my already messed up skin. When I was teen (I’m now 30) I was given OTC benzoyl peroxide (i can’t remember the %) but it REALLY REALLY messed up my skin. I have sensitive skin but was told

    One Month of Needles

    I've been hearing a lot about this microneedling over the last year and had considered giving it a try. But it wasn't until I heard a coworker raving about it that I thought I should actually go for it. Basically, you're rolling dozens of tiny needles all over your face, causing controlled injury to the layers of skin and forcing the body to increase collagen production. This improves, apparently, fine lines, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and skin firmness. There are different needle length
  12. Hi! I was just recently prescribed Accutane and I am about to start my first course of 60/mg day tomorrow. I have been using the regimen EVERY SINGLE DAY (BP followed by AHA+ mixed w/ moisturizer) for about 2 years now, and I'm terrified of what is going to happen to my face if I stop cold turkey. I was thinking of gradually decreasing the amount of BP I use from two pumps down to one until I feel the Accutane is making my skin too dry to use any more. My face has always been extremely oily and
  13. Acne is such a cruel and underrated disease and I'll never understood why we never get sympathy but people with other diseases do. Besides that I've been alone since around 14 and i'm 22 now. Acne just wrecked my teen years and after two courses of Accutane its finally gone minus some redness. How am I suppose to salvage a social life at this point. I have major trust issues because everyone avoided me in school because of my face. No one at this age seems open to making new friends anyway.
  14. *If you do not want to read all my piffling , just read this: I am your average 17 year old male, with mild acne, bright white skin, would do anything for my acne. The regimen is definitely NOT for me ! wish someone had written that for me before I wasted my time like that. I have started the regimen 6 weeks (minus 2 days;) ago, and i have decided to quit. If you have mild acne like me , I mean yeah pimples all over but no cystic and not severe i guess, and white sensitive skin, this regime
  15. Some background information to start off.. I am 17, currently one month from graduating highschool. From what I can remember, my skin only started giving me major problems during my last two years, grade 11 til now. My forehead is where most of my acne is located, a lot of hyper pigmentation, unevenness, and pimples/whiteheads that come and go in waves. I also get a reoccurring whiteheads on my chin and near my mouth. My cheeks are clear and smooth, opposed to a pimple once and a while. I do
  16. Hello All, My name is Natalia and I created this post strand to help you in your personal journey with over the counter acne meds and self esteem issues due to acne. I am fifteen and have struggled with painful hormonal breakouts and cystic acne mostly in areas where one would apply countour: in my cheeks, chin, and upper forehead and eyebrow areas. I struggled with self esteem issues due to my acne and would constantly cover it up with tons of foundation and concealer, while simultaneously c

    AHA Making Skin Peel?

    I've been on the regimen since November 2017, and I added AHA to the regimen in the beginning of February 2018. I put it on at night time 1/2 and 1/2 with my moisturizer, and I've noticed that shortly after applying the AHA, it will start to kind of crumble up, especially around my chin. Is anyone else having this problem? I'm not too sure if I should just go ahead and stop using it or not, because I am seeing results in regards to my hyperpigmentation.

  20. Hi, I am a 30 year old and suffering from severe-moderate cystic acne from last 10 years. It is so embarrassing and heartbreaking to have acne at this age. I have tried EVERYTHING, if I said everything, I meant EVERYTHING. I tried all home remedies, antibiotics, OCM, Accutane, Spirolactane, Acne.org, proactive, Peter roth, Clinique 3 step solution and many other solutions available in market, BP, salycylic, Glycolic, clindamycin, Azalaic acid, Nicotinamide and other topical treatment.

    So many changes since my last post, and only a few of them related to my skin. About a month ago I moved from Asheville to Greensboro for a job promotion. And while it has been an amazing opportunity, it's also been hectic. I've been sick twice during that time, including during the actual move itself. I have had to make a lot of adjustments. Although I have been good about keeping up with my skincare during that time. One of the set backs has been that anytime I am presented with a differ
  24. Hi all! I am 26 y/o female. I have been using Dan's regimen for about 5 months now. I have had some improvement, but am still seeing some hormonal acne in my chin and cheeks. I am currently doing BP and lotion in the morning, then BP and lotion + AHA at night. I am considering buying OTC Differin to add to my regimen and replacing the nightly BP with it. Should a lotion be used AFTER applying a retinol? Would anyone care to weigh in on this? I would like to incorporate a retinol into my routin
