I'd really recommend starting the Regimen and using Dan's products. His cleanser is great, his 2.5% benzoyl peroxide is just right, and honestly I feel like his moisturizer actually fights acne rather than clogging pores! Check it out: http://www.danielkern.com/
You might also want to try taking a zinc supplement, because many studies have linked low levels of zinc with acne. Optizinc by Source Naturals is a good brand. Pretty cheap, too.
My acne is fairly mild and well-controlled with The Regimen, but I'd like my skin to clear up completely so I'm looking to add some supplements. My diet is pretty good in my opinion, lots of variety, lots of greens, lots of protein, etc so I don't think I'm missing too much but I figure it couldn't hurt to try to add some more nutrients.
However, this thread is a little...overwhelming lol. Could someone suggest some simple supplements that might help me get all the way clear? I've heard good things about zinc, but I'm on doxycycline right now and I've heard that they don't work well together.
Also, has anybody tried the "Perfect Skin" supplement by Genuine Health? It was recommended by the book "The Clear Skin Diet" and I've been considering it, but I think I'd like to start with something simpler first like a zinc supplement.
Here's the link to Perfect Skin: http://shop.genuinehealth.com/perfect-skin.html
When you say you use 6 drops in your moisturizer, what do you mean? Do you mean that you put 6 drops of it into the entire bottle of moisturizer and mix? Or do you add 6 drops to each application of moisturizer?
