So you stopped B5, and now just use Dan's method and have clear skin? The thing is, although I haven't tried Dan's exact method, I've used a gentle cleanser, BP, and moisturizer combo in the past and it had no effect...
Actually I didn't use Dan's method. At the age of 27 I hit rock bottom with acne and had been trying to cure it through diet fads which never helped. I was massively depressed but In the end I just stumbled on a good skin care routine. I went back to the doctor and he prescribed me duac cream which really worked with the spots I had, and then I began to realise that my acne was caused by dry flaky skin that got inflamed over time so I began to use a simple cleanse, medicate and moisturise routine and it's improved my skin no end. I still get clogged pores but nowhere near the level they were and they rarely get inflamed and I haven't had any new scars/deep pitted pock marks since.
I doubt my skin care routine would be any use to those with cystic acne but I think a good moisturizing routine is essential if you suffer from dry skin
Hair is shedding like crazy. I've stopped the Nizoral as it's too scary but I thought the Fin would have calmed my shedding by now, not make it worse. For a lot of people it takes up to six months to work though.
