I just ordered the regimen recently and I should get it and start using it by sometime by next week. Currently I've been using Michael Todd True Organics for the past five months (since around thanksgiving) and as you can see I still have acne scars and some active sad.png I feel like it's worked but I don't know I'm confused, I don't know if I should keep using it longer to see any difference but not really sure. That's why I decided to try MTTO. I've been wanting to try The Regimen ever since I found out about it which was sometime last year...but I decided to go with a more "natural" or "organic" regimen(is that why it's working much slower?). But I'll attach some pictures I took before I started using MTTO. Thank you to those who took the time to read this and I would appreciate it if you all would give me some feedback! rolleyes.gif

PS: also if you're wondering I've had acne ever since I was in tenth grade (my second semester to be exact) and I am now 18 about to turn 19 next month and I still have acne sad.png((((

That looks pretty inflammatory. I dealt with my inflammatory acne with diet changes. You could consider taking some more obvious offenders out (like dairy, wheat) temporarily, and correcting vitamin deficiencies with green smoothies.

 

Acne is more often than not an internal condition. Modern science is recognizing this now, but commercial products are still driven by large market demand. Your skin looks like it's gotten better though.

 

Along with diet modification, you could try the regimen to speed things up. If you do, I would only buy the benzoyl peroxide, and only apply it once daily to avoid unnecessary irritation.

It definelty improved. I agree with the diet changes. try a week or two without dairy. Also, I just bought his line too. Should be here tomorrow. Mario badescu is what cleared up my skin, but I am VERY curious about the hype on this todd guy. Keep using it, or try switching to mario. You can apply online and get free samples based on your skin.

Definitie improvement but after being on it 5 months, i would imagine you may have been somewhat clearer.  Give Dan's Regimen a try but as other posters stated, a good diet can help - it may be the key for you.  You'd be surprised how easy it is to give up dairy and gluten.

 

Good Luck!


It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end.  Here's to finding my end.

 

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

That's something I've done as well I've removed dairy ever since last year around this time it definitely has helped. I drink plenty of water, if not the only thing I usually drink(no soda, sweet drinks) & I drink soy milk & almond milk . I did change up my diet drastically also so I don't really know what else to do. I eat pretty healthy & exercise on a regular basis /:

I will continue til I'm clear!!! (:
& nope never been on it

Never heard of Mario badescu! I'll definitely do my research thanks! & also dairy is completely out of my diet & it has been for a long time

I had acne for 20 years the only thing which cleared my skin was yaz and anti-DHT supplements. Acne is hormonal, if you dont want bc Id try something like saw palmetto or spearmint. Topicals help but once I treated my hormones I dont need topicals even. Its very freeing!
