    I see some posts talking about acne on F & N sometimes, so I decided to post this. I started to break out a couple weeks ago and I found this on acne.org. I've been using the regimen for about a week and a half and I'm about 80% clear :bowdown: . The products are cheap and make your skin feel really soft. :cool:

    I hope it helps some people out.

    accutane > any regimen

    true story. 5 months of accutane 2 years ago and my face went from hideousness to near-perfect skin. I get maybe 1 - 2 very small (no white heads) pimples every few months.

    Of course, but accutane is for serious cases of acne and has alot of side effects.

    I just finished my 5 months a couple weeks ago and my skin hasn't looked or felt better. I was worried it wasn't going to work for a while but right around the 5 month point it just started to improve more and more.

    Hmm I might try it. I tried the acne.org main regimen and it was too much to handle. Putting on all these things on my face.

    i use the main one right now, it has worked wonders, although my skin is really dry but a moisturizer and it takes care of that. Except for my EYELIDS have gotten really dry, but thats not even a place where i use the BP, so i'm not sure.

    The only thing that ever worked for me was bp. Put it on all the time. As soon as you get out of the shower put it on your face. Let dry then put some good lotion on. Also before you go to sleep. Hell, the first time I did 1ad, I broke out like a 14 year old, but the next time I was doing this and didn't at all hardly. It really worked for me.

    I started them right about the same time, so maybe it's one and not the other that is working. I took the lysine to increase a certain fluid volume after a certain exercise. Bottle also says it promotes healthy skin so who knows.

    bumping an old thread.. i got these two products today... did you mean use the BP twice a day and use SA once a day? the SA blackhead cleanser has exfoliating beads in it and it is not good for the skin to exfoliate too much. and the instructions said to use the BP twice a day and the SA once a day. how long do i have to use these to get rid of black/white heads?

    No, use the SA in the morning and the SA and BP at night. I'm still using this regimen and I love it. I've been on b5 for a month. With both I've only had like 3-4 small pimples in the last month or so. :cool:

    who told you to do that? im pretty sure it is not good to be exfoliating your skin twice a day.
