I Am Desperate..

2 posts in this topic

Hello, everyone! My name is Amber, I just registered.

I am getting married in about 9 months or so, and I'm desperate for my skin to clear up.

I have been (and still sort of am) on Proactiv. It seems to help a bit, but I still have inflamed and sometimes painful acne.

Without using any acne treatments, my chin, cheeks, and sides of my face break out awfully with whiteheads and inflamed acne, and my chin will get very painful cystic acne.

After reading up some more on this website, I have realized Proactiv's cleanser may be irritating my face a bit, so I am now using Cetaphil Normal to Oily Cleanser, Proactiv 2.5 Benzoyl Peroxide, and Eucerin SPF 15 Moisturizer.

I am starting to break out with more whiteheads.

I am considering starting The Regimen using acne.org products.

I was wondering.. since this here (Cetaphil, Proactiv, Eucerine) is not working for me, and it's the same concept, will Dan's products work better? Is it different?

Any help would be much appreciated, I'm new to this!
