Thanks Will for the info on the Bio Oil. Seems like the Calendula is a key ingredient in some of your favorites. Are these products mostly for reducing redness? Do you have rosacea or excema?

1. Pure Deming Intense Gel
2. Pure Deming Mini Peel
3. Scotch Tape

These (and more BP) are the only changes to my skin care regimen and I met my ex-girlfriend for dinner last night (she's known me for over 5 years from the age of 24) and she said she's never seen my skin looking so good, ever, she was honestly amazed (I have no spots, the tone has evened out and she said my skin was glowing), so she's decided to get some of the PD products for herself (she was a bit worried that I was becoming a 'metrosexual' though smile.gif) .

I have you guys on this site to thank for my new complexion, words can not express my gratitude to everyone on the site for their advice and knowledge.

Merry Xmas (or Happy Holidays as they say in the US) to all.

M.

Puredeming intense gel is the best product I have ever used for overall skin health. It is really amazing and yields instant results.

Apple Cider vinegar is incredible also.

James...
Are you using the regular or the R-ALA version of the Intense Gel?

I think (don't quote me on this!) that the only way to purchase puredeming products is via their website. I'm not aware of any shops that stock them - I seem to recall Deming once telling me in an e-mail that they do not distribute their products to shops.
If it's any reassurance, puredeming's postage is very reasonable and their service is superb.


On another subject, thought I'd add my top 5 products to the list!

1) Amino-plex spray.
2) Emu oil.
3) 100% pure manuka oil and/or Living Nature's manuka oil and honey antiseptic gel.
4) Puredeming Intense Gel R-ALA.
5) Regular Copper peptides serum.

this looks like a really helpful thread...I've got a few questions for the ppl here:

1)for the ppl who HAVE seen improvemetns with their favorite products: what types of scars have the products helped fade? the ones with rolling edges? red marks? hyperpigmentation?

2)how long does it take for the results to show (especially if youre using the puredeming intense gel) since im thinking of getting that)?

3)have most of you already stopped getting acne and are only treating scars? like, could I use the puredeming stuff along with my tazorac and neutrogena acne wash?

4) do most of you have white/fair skin? I am asian and have a darker skin tone, so can similar results still be expected?

thanks in advance

Hello - with reference to the intense gel, here are my opinions:

1) The Intense gel has not helped with my actual scarring, in my experience, but has helped fade red marks and improve overall skin condition. It also tightens the skin to make scarring somewhat less noticeable.

2) results with the intense gel are visible immediately - your face may look a little red for about half an hour after removing the product, but it is likely that you will have a 'glow' and that your redness will have faded a little. Better results are gained the more you use the product - don't expect miraculous results first time but you may see an immediate effect on your skin condition.

3) It is best to use the R-ALA version of the intense gel if you still suffer from breakouts, as this contains jojoba oil rather than sunflower and olive oil. Jojoba oil has less tendency to clog pores. The Intense gel won't help with active acne, though. I think you could use it along with the products you've mentioned but DO NOT use it immediately after tazorac, as you may suffer a burning sensation as the alpha lipoic acid works on the newly peeling skin. (not something you want to be happen)

4) I have white skin, of medium-dark tone. I would expect the intense gel to have an equally good effect on darker skin tones, as it works by improving the skins condition rather than by peeling away the skin.

Hope this is helpful.

It's up to you - you could use the intense gel now, I think, but just bear in mind that it won't help your active acne, and also don't use it immediately after applying tazorac. (You could use it the next morning)

I'm very new here, and I'm still confused about how to use acne scarring treatment with BP gel, especially the PureDeming IG. Which one do you guys recommend to use with Dan's BP gel? I'm having some noticeable red marks and I still breakout.

I don't know about this, as I have never used BP in conjunction with the Intense Gel. I would think that the R-ALA version would be the one you would be best off with, although you might want to try the less intense 'regular' version if the BP is irritating your skin at all (ie: redness, peeling etc)

Has anyone else used BP in conjunction with IG? What are your feelings?

I personally like Pevonia scrub as my cleanser.
It's gentle enough but also does a good job of
cleansing my pores and blackheads with the
little granules.

Their marine DNA cream is a pretty good
moisterizer but kinda expensive.

I am curious about this highly touted new product
call StriVectin. Their marketing slogan is "Better
than Botox". I wonder if it actually helps stimulate
and build collagen. It is pretty darn expensive
at $150 per 6 oz tube. If anyone has used it and
think it's a good product let us know. I read a
NY Times article that it smooths out wrinkles, but
it's not as effective as botox.

I probably haven't tried nearly as much as others on here in regards to my scars, because I think I've always continuously tried to improve my skin, but I try conservative methods that I can easily afford yet I think will give me results.

I do want to thank whoever recommended the PureDeming Intense Gel R-ALA to this forum. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I was a bit hesitant to order it, but I kept reading posts on the results and made sure to note any caveats, and I just took the plunge and bought a 1 oz. bottle.

Good lord, I love this stuff. I left it on my skin all night the first day I got it, and I woke up and noticed a difference immediately. My skin glowed, and although I notice my skin is plumper and the scars are less noticeable in the morning anyway, this was remarkable. And where I normally see the scars get a bit more noticeable by evening, since I've been using the PureDeming Intense Gel, my skin is toned and smooth and glowing from morning until night. I just can't believe it. I love this stuff. I never expected it to work so great. I also think the results are doubly good when I do a maintenance glycolic peel in the morning after using it all night. I did a 40% glycolic peel the night after using PD for the first time, and then I applied my Sage Firming & Brightening cream (which has given me nice results, too) and I had tight, tone, glowing skin all day long...my makeup even looked better because my skin was so smooth and I didn't have to do as much to conceal my various imperfections. bb_icon_mrgreen.gif

So my list of top products would be (don't have 5 'cause there's more work to be done and more stuff to check out!)

1) PureDeming Intense Gel R-ALA
2) Glycolic peels (40% and 65%)
3) Sage Skin Care's Firming and Brightening Cream (plumps up my skin and gives me that pretty glow like I'm blushing from within)

I have a 12.5% TCA peel on hand that I am waiting for an opportunity to try. Seems like I can't get a stretch where I don't have something I can't look like the Creature from the Black Lagoon for, so I am just biding my time. Meanwhile, I'm happy with how I'm looking with the PureDeming and with my mineral makeup to help me hide what I don't want anyone but me to see. bb_smile.gif

I would love to recommend the PureDeming to some ladies I know would love it, but I'm afraid PureDeming would start running short and not have enough for us who really need it! Is that wrong? bb_wink.gif I might slip the name to just a few so PureDeming gets some nice word-of-mouth marketing and make sure they stay in business. They gotta keep making this stuff!
