Hello (: I'm new to this site. Found it interesting as i can't find solution to clear my pimples.
I'm from Singapore too!

Not that i can find another alternative but just glad to find a Singaporean here too. What regiments did you guys follow?

I can't even use Neutrogena. I tried once and when i stop using it, i break out badly. Now i use a bar soap, stop using it today because i just read in the forum that it contain sodium cocoate -.-" Oxy-10 works for me though but i need to find a good facial wash. Any recommendation? I use Olay white radiance but it seems like it had no effect at all to lighten up my acne scars. I feel like it's hard to find a moisturizers here.

Hello! The regimen should work well if you're following the steps, unless you're allergic to something in neutrogena on the spot. But the main ingred is BP and oxy10 has it too, so you can find another brand i guess. I'm using Benzac which is available in guardian, try not to use a 10% solution, mayb why you broke out was because the excessive drying causes irritation. Try a 2.5% with a suitable moisturizer. Also, when you use BP you don't want to use a very drying face wash because of the oil, BP itself will reduce oil on your face significantly. During the regimen do not wash your face more then 2 times a day, this was where i spotted my mistake at first. And give it time, BP might seem to worsen your skin during the initial 1-2 weeks, but it should get better after the first month. I use clean and clear foam wash, its gentle and goes well with the regimen, you should check out the recommended products in Dans list or other peoples, but you know how singapore have really limited supplies.

DKR is really a great way to get started on your journey to clear skin, but too bad it didn't work for me. Although I need to mention, BP prolong the healing of red marks.

However, less is more. There are a lot of alternatives on this forum, so check around.

Exactly. Things in singapore are really limited. I wash my more then 2 times too, Kane. Hahaha! but after i read Dan's regimens. I can see the results that my pimples are clearing fast. Although the feeling of oily skin is irritating. I just wish i could buy Dan's product. Too bad nobody i know owns a credit card.

Trust me Fad, wash only two times, preferably every 12 hours. I know it feels icky and gross for the first few days, but you'll realize your skin stops producing as much oil. Washing excessively actually makes your skin produce more oil.

I don't even need to dab my face with a tissue every few hours anymore smile.gif

this board is still aliveeeee eusa_boohoo.gif

yes using benzac 2.5 is the same as benzoyl peroxide, as i have done my research and concluded thats the only cheapest alternative to ordering dan's products

i have to go back to the derm every 6 months, each time would be around $50 for consultation plus medication

p/s skin is so much smoother, only left with the horrendous scars (i have no idea where they came from, since i dont squeeze!)

I know the AHA helps scars, but we still cant find a product here that has AHA. I know that skin regenerates itself every 6 months, so time is also a key factor here too. If you are really desperate, chemical skin peels do get rid of scars, but I would say dont go for facials, as they are really a waste of money.

We can go check out Nik's products at town according to an earlier poster smile.gif Maybe we can go check it out together sometimes, i'm pretty shy about these stuff cause imma male redface.gif so i end up not really clear in what products i should use.

yeah hahaa. Sorry for late post, got really busy lately. Im left with scars that are beginning to fade, and that occasional pimple. I find that it helps to blot your face with tissue paper

Since im sure my face produces enough oil to fry an egg, i can use 5 sheets of blotting paper at a time eusa_wall.gif

Cant believe it, some relatives have even told me that my acne has improved so much smile.gif

But one thing i noticed is that my skin is very sensitive! I cannot handle tooo much BP2.5%,
and the derm gave me panoxyl5 which is BP5%! its kind of drying and my skin feels.. dead sad.gif

imagine if i covered my face in BP10! hahaha. My guess is that it would be as hard as a cornflake eusa_doh.gif

okay this is what i got.

1) Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser
2) Neutrogena - On-the-Spot
3) Eucerin - Hydrating & Protecting Moisturiser

could not find any other moisturiser so din have a choice there. its has Alpha-Gulcosylrutin (AGR) and Vitamin E. no idea what AGR does or if it would cause any side effects when mixed with BP in step 3.

Edit; ok i found out abt the ingredients in Eucerin - Hydrating & Protecting Moisturiser:
Aqua, Glycerin, Octocrylene, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Cyclomethicone, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Tocopherol, Sodium Carbomer, Trisodium EDTA, Glucosylrutin, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Butylene Glykol, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Isoquercitrin, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

DOES NOT CONTAIN ZINC OXIDE!!! sad.gif

Oh hi roshan smile.gif if its not acne but red spots i don't think you need BP unless you continue breaking out. If the spots are scars, then you can probably try scrubs if your skin isn't too sensitive, or AHA might help too. Vitamin and other stuff help too.

About the vitamins, you can try watsons or guardian. But i doubt its gonna have a huge price difference as most vitamin pills don't come cheap.
