Hey all!

I'm 23, and I've suffered from acne since I was about 15 or 16. It has been a long and one-sided battle, consisting of a dermatologist's care, internal and external prescription meds, and all the products a drugstore has to offer. I've finally found success in the following:


MORNING:
Baking Soda face scrub (just water and BS, it is a similar exfoliant to ones that are used in spas. My skin cleared up DRAMATICALLY once I was able to get rid of excess dead skin and allowing the BP to seep into my pores)

Basis bar soap

Oil of Olay Sensitive Skin Lotion




EVENING:
Baking Soda face scrub

Purpose bar soap
(a little harsher and more drying than the Basis bar)

Acne.org Benzoyl Peroxide

Spot treat scars with Vitamin E oil
(purchased at Target)




After trying the regimen, I thought I had clear skin. And then I experimented with baking soda.... and WOAH! AMAZING difference. It helped get rid of pitted scars, as well as red scars, and my skin is so much smoother with a much more even and vibrant complexion.


PS I must note that I am on birth control, ortho-tricyclen generic "Sprintec". When I am off of my pills for the week during my period, I notice that I start to begin chest or back acne, which means that the pill is definitely giving my face an advantage and a leg up over not being on the pill and just using BP.

I would KILL to have skin like yours.

How bad was your skin before? What type of acne did you have? How long were you on Dan's BP before you started seeing results? Sorry for all the questions but I'm curious because your skin is AMAZING now.

I wish I had your great results. When I tried BS all it did was end up burning my skin and made my acne worse.
