Reviews about The Acne Cure (7):
Just like many of the reviewers here, I have tried EVERYTHING over the years, prescription medication (oral and topical), vitamins, Proactive, diet, 2 courses of acutane. Nothing worked, and my skin is very sensitive, and naturally very oily, and scars very easily. I bought this book over 1 year ago and finally understood the reasons behind how acne developed, and the need to use different products to control different phases of the acne cycle.

After putting the scientific information in this book together with other books, my routine is this:

Morning: Wash 1x with 2% Salicylic Wash - Oil Free Acne Wash, Neutrogena ($5), then wash again with Proactive's 2.5% BP cleanser. Use Proactive's toner and 2.5% BP treatment cream, then spf 30 sunscreen.

Evening: Wash 1x with Noxema Triple Clean Cleanser--has Triclosan ($5), then wash again with Glycolic Acid - 7% Glycolic Exfoliating Wash, DDF. ($27, Sephora). Then sometimes use a 2% hydroquinone product to slowly remove scars, but usually nothing else at night.

Washing my face twice morning and night with these products has eliminated the severe acne I had for 17 years. All of these products are good in themselves (Proactive is good with BP, because their delivery system gets the BP deep within the pores. The triclosan cleanser is good because it eliminates surface bacteria from the skin, glycolin acid is good because it lifts dead skin cells and rejuvenates skin.) But when I finally understood that they all had to work together to eliminate acne, and stuck to the program, is when I had amazing results. It has been about a year of 97% acne free.

I am using more products now to make it all work than I used to, but I am spending SOOOO much less $ than I used to on acne products it is amazing.

I have never written a review before. . . But this book has changed my life so much that I wanted to let you know what I do so hopefully it can help someone else.
I tried the regimen outlined in this book and it cleared up my skin in a matter of days. I use Neutrogena acne wash, Alpha Hydrox 10% lotion 6oz, and Neutrogena benzoyl peroxide. Drug stores in my area do not carry the Alpha Hydrox brand anymore but you can get it on amazon or from their own website- it's good stuff and ridiculously cheap no matter where you get it. I only did the benzoyl peroxide and ice thing twice and it was enough to do it for me. I had been using the salicylic acid wash and glycolic acid lotion twice a day for two weeks prior to doing the first ice treatment to try to dissolve some of the blockages first. I only do the ice treatment now if I feel or see a bump starting, or else once a month as a preventative- it's a little rough on my skin. I still use the other two every morning and evening, and I do not rinse off the glycolic acid lotion. It's not exactly how the doctor says to do it, but it works for me. I made my own ice packs double-bagging freezer ziplock bags and partially filling them with water. I imagine you could use the ice treatment for any serum you want absorbed deep into the skin. I admit I was skeptical when I first read this book, but I had never used all three treatments together and that is the key. I am trying to add in the supplements recommended but will it's a lot to remember to take every day. All three of these treatments are inexpensive and I wish I had known about this a long time ago because I suffered with acne needlessly for years. The doctor has additional info on keeping skin healthy after you cure the acne that is useful.
After spending thousands of dollars the last 25 years to find skincare to completely clear pimples, blackheads and control my EXTREMELY oily skin without drying out and aging my face, I finally found products and a routine that works for me after finding and reading this excellent book. I will admit that I DO NOT do the routine exactly as outlined in the book, but I still have gotten excellent results. Here is my am/pm routine:
Morning Routine:
1) Wash with Neutrogena oil free acne wash (has 2% salicylic acid with a pH of 3.8-4.2) for 2-3 minutes, rinse off and pat dry.
2) Apply Alpha Hydrox 10% glycolic acid oil free formula (has a pH of 4)and leave on. I DO NOT rinse it off like it says to in the book.
3) Wait 4 minutes and I then apply Neutrogena oil free lotion spf 15 with DermaNaturals from the Neutrogena acne kit.
4) I then apply OC Eight to my (not nearly as oily as it used to be) t-zone.
Evening Routine:
1) Quickly and gently I wash with the skin polishing cleanser from the Neutrogena acne kit to wash off the sunscreen and OC Eight I put on in the morning.
2) Wash with neutrogena oil free acne wash for 2-3 minutes like I do in the morning, rinse and pat dry.
3) Wait 5 minutes and then I apply the acne control lotion (has 2.5% benzoyl peroxide) from the Neutrogena acne kit. I DO NOT ice my face first like it says to in the book.
The reason why I use Neutrogena oil free acne wash and Alpha Hydrox 10% glycolic acid is because I read somewhere that to get proper exfoliation the product needs to have a pH of 3 to 4.5 and those two products are in the right pH range. I have to say that I have never had skin this clear since I was probably about 12 years old! As an adult I have always battled insanely oily skin, facial redness, cystic chin acne and blackheads that I could never completely get rid of. Not only have these products and this skin care routine cleared all of my acne, but my skin is very even toned, younger looking and a lot less oily!
This is a great book. It teaches a clear simple solution by a doctor who knows what he's talking about. The skin problem is resolved with readily available products that are not expensive, so Dr. Dubrow is not selling the book to then get you to buy one of his products (if he has any).
