Remember to add in AHA+ (Glycolic Acid – 10%) after 1 month: I strongly recommend that everyone add in AHA+ after 1 month to enhance the efficacy of the regimen even further, adding insurance that your skin will stay perfectly clear.

For specific instructions on how to use this kit, learn The Regimen and follow it precisely. Cleanser

When treating acne, the first step is to cleanse the skin. Cleansing removes oil, dirt, and pollution so that the treatment you apply can effectively penetrate. However, cleansing should be performed correctly, with only bare hands, using a featherlight touch for 10 seconds or less. This might seem fast, but any form of skin irritation can make acne worse, so it is vitally important to stay gentle and brief when washing your skin.

I made this generously sized, ultra-gentle liquid cleanser so we would have a pH-balanced cleanser which doesn’t overdry and is gentle enough for people with sensitive, acne-prone skin. It also lathers extremely well, which helps reduce drag on the skin, further helping to prevent irritation.

It is also unscented and dye-free. Fragrances and dyes can sometimes irritate the skin, and since irritation can lead to acne, it’s best to opt for unscented and dye-free products.

Does it take off makeup?

Yes, it works at removing foundation, BB/CC cream, powder, blush, and bronzer. For long-wearing makeup, lipstick, and eye makeup, Moisturizer or Organic Jojoba Oil may be a better choice.

How do I use it to shave? Cleanser is an ideal shaving “cream.” Dispense a quarter-size amount into your palm and get a nice thick lather going. Apply the lather as you would shaving cream and off you go. It’s as good or better than almost all shaving creams/gels/foams/soaps and helps you avoid potentially irritating ingredients in these products. See the guide to shaving for more detailed instructions. Treatment (Benzoyl Peroxide – 2.5%)

After many years of members asking me to produce and sell a 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide, I decided to go ahead and make this generously sized, gel-based 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide, and to make it as perfect as possible to use with The Regimen. That meant it had to be big so people had plenty of it, gel-based so it would spread easily and wouldn’t turn white when you perspire, and pH-balanced to keep irritation to a minimum.

Recently I’ve improved Treatment (Benzoyl Peroxide – 2.5%) even more, incorporating ultra-micronized, evenly dispersed particles of benzoyl peroxide. You’ll notice results right away. When used correctly, you can expect to completely clear up. Also, with this new Treatment, there is no need to wait for your skin to dry between steps of The Regimen. Now The Regimen only takes a few minutes to perform.

Why 2.5% strength?

Several studies show that 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide clears acne just as well as 10% solutions. Importantly, it also produces much less irritation. This is important for two reasons:

  • Irritation of the skin can lead to more acne. It is very important to reduce irritation when it comes to acne-prone skin.
  • Because 2.5% dries the skin less than 10% Benzoyl Peroxide, using a 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide makes a daily Benzoyl Peroxide regimen sustainable because it doesn’t overdry the skin.

What does ultra-micronized and evenly dispersed mean exactly?

The Benzoyl Peroxide particles in this Treatment are ultra-micronized, which means they are exceptionally small. This allows the particles to better penetrate into pores (sebaceous follicles), where they then kill acne bacteria (C. acnes), and gently peel the skin more effectively. This is why you will find that this Treatment clears you up so remarkably well and so quickly. This is also why you won’t find grittiness in Treatment like you often do in other Benzoyl Peroxide products.

The tiny particles are suspended evenly in a gel matrix for even dispersement across the skin. This even dispersement facilitates complete penetration into pores and ensures that the Benzoyl Peroxide particles stay at maximum power. You may “feel it working” a bit more than before, but should find it less irritating.

How does Benzoyl Peroxide work?

Whether we are talking about the face or the body, acne problems start the same way. For reasons no one completely understands, a pore becomes clogged, trapping skin oil that normally drains to the surface. Inside skin oil lives acne bacteria, which multiplies in the clogged pore, and voila, a pimple is born.

Acne treatments usually target one of the two phases of a blemish’s life cycle, whereas Benzoyl Peroxide targets both:

  • Preventing the initial clogged pore: Benzoyl Peroxide is a drying and peeling agent, unclogging pores and preventing new clogged pores.
  • Killing acne bacteria: Out of any over-the-counter or prescription medication on the market, Benzoyl Peroxide kills bacteria the best. Studies show Benzoyl Peroxide kills over 99% of acne bacteria within minutes.

One more benefit of Benzoyl Peroxide that is still not completely understood is how it dramatically calms the skin and improves the overall complexion. You’ll notice after you use Treatment for a few weeks that your complexion will transform from red and irritated to balanced, even-toned, and healthy looking.

To sum it all up, when you use enough 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide–especially ultra-micronized and evenly dispersed Benzoyl Peroxide–in the right way as outlined in The Regimen, it’s quite simply stronger than acne, and will leave your skin completely clear, balanced, and healthy.

How to use 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide?

The secret to using benzoyl peroxide is to use a lot of it (once you have slowly ramped up the dosage). This is why it was a no-brainer to make Treatment only in large sizes.

It is also important to remember to stay gentle when you apply it. I often tell people to “go overboard with how gentle you stay when you apply it.” Use only a featherlight touch and allow your skin to do the work, absorbing the Benzoyl Peroxide on its own without rubbing. If after a minute or two it’s still not completely absorbed, just let the rest absorb on its own.

Important – follow The Regimen instructions precisely: Since I can’t say everything right here, be sure to read through The Regimen carefully before you start using Treatment. You should start clearing up quickly and reliably if you follow it precisely. Many people find it helpful to bring the Regimen video into the bathroom with them the first couple of times they perform The Regimen until they have it down pat.

Reminder: I recommend that you add in AHA+ (10% Glycolic Acid) after 1 month on The Regimen. It turbo-charges Benzoyl Peroxide, and provides insurance that you will stay completely clear.

What are the risks and warnings?

As with any Benzoyl Peroxide product, it is important that you start slowly with the amount that you use. Benzoyl Peroxide comes with what dermatologists refer to as the well-known “hardening effect.” This means that Benzoyl Peroxide causes redness, dryness, and itchiness in many people for the first few weeks until the skin gets used to it. While this is unavoidable to some extent, you can prevent some of the redness and dryness by being prudent and STARTING SLOWLY (notice how this is in all caps – trust me), with just a pea-size amount once a day for the first week, and then slowly upping your dosage and frequency from there.

Also, a very small percentage (about 1 in 500) of the population is allergic to Benzoyl Peroxide, which is evidenced by swelling and/or severe crusting. If you suspect you may be allergic, test it on a small area (the meaty part of the inner elbow is a good spot) for a few days before diving in.

Lastly, Benzoyl Peroxide can bleach dyed fabrics, so keep it away from clothing that you love. Benzoyl Peroxide may also bleach hair and eyebrows in some people to some extent.

Why is it so inexpensive?

I am able to offer such a large and high quality Benzoyl Peroxide at a low price and still make a profit due to my low overhead. Also, because you are ordering directly from me, there are no complex distribution channels or middlemen that inflate prices. Lastly, I do not advertise and have no marketing department (so please help spread the word about The Regimen on social media). Moisturizer

People who are acne-prone tend to have what is called an impaired skin barrier. This means is the outermost layer of skin is weak, and this causes loss of moisture through the skin. Even if you feel you have “oily” skin you can still have an impaired skin barrier. To heal the skin barrier, apply Moisturizer after applying Treatment.

I carefully formulated Moisturizer to contain no pore-clogging or irritating ingredients and to be safe to use on acne-prone skin. In fact, you can use as much as you need, as often as you need, without fear of clogging pores.

Some people have success with moisturizing only once per day in the morning, particularly people who live in humid environments. But even if that might be true for you, first, follow The Regimen precisely until you are completely clear. That means moisturizing twice a day, every day. Then, once you are completely clear, you can try eliminating moisturizer at night and see if you stay clear. Moisturizer in 16 oz. size now contains Niacinamide

Due to your input over the past year or so, I’ve been in the lab experimenting with the active natural ingredient that I put into Moisturizer. Previously I used Licorice Root in all 3 sizes of the Moisturizer, but I recently switched to Niacinamide in the 16 oz. size. Otherwise, the Moisturizer is exactly the same.

How to choose?

Licorice root works as an anti-irritant, calming down the skin, and Niacinamide works to regulate skin oil production and reduce redness. Quite frankly, both are extremely similar and you will likely not notice a difference. That is the feedback I’ve been getting so far. So, my best advice is to simply choose the size of Moisturizer that is best for you. However, moving forward, for future versions of Moisturizer, I will be switching over to Niacinamide for all sizes, and most likely increasing the percentage of Niacinamide as well.

Is the Moisturizer non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores)?

Yes. 100%. I chose each ingredient carefully to ensure that this moisturizer is completely non-comedogenic. Instead of causing any problems with acne, regular use should actually help calm and soothe acne-prone skin. Use it liberally without fear.

Why use a full quarter-size amount?

Many people are accustomed to using only a small amount of moisturizer. However, when you are on The Regimen and using generous amounts of Treatment (2.5% benzoyl peroxide), your skin will require extra hydration. For most people, that means using a quarter-size amount (4mL) of this moisturizer to keep the skin in balance. During the first few weeks of The Regimen you may require even more.

Note: Some people who have extra oily skin or live in humid environments may require less. Through trial and error you will find the right amount for you. You want your skin to feel non-irritated and fully moisturized.

Why add jojoba oil?

Jojoba oil makes any regular moisturizer into a super moisturizer. If you want extra hydration, try mixing in a few drops (5-6) of jojoba oil to your moisturizer before you apply it. The added jojoba oil will provide an extra boost of moisture without clogging pores. It may also help control oil production—an extra, very welcome benefit.
