Growing up i never had acne, it wasnt until mid 20's that i started to have issues. Im 28 now
It cleared up a year ago with salicylic peels, micro and antibiotics, although has flared up tremendously over the last few months.
It has crushed my confidence, and i feel like im turning into a different person because of it.
It has totally consumed my life, sometimes spending all day looking on the internet at treatments and blogs, it completely does my head in.
I wear makeup to cover it, but feel like it only makes it look worse, then cant wait to get the makeup off after work to prevent more damage. I wont even go to the beach anymore and it was my favourite thing in the world, but who goes to the beach with makeup?!
I, like most people on here have tried everything from proactiv, exposed skincare, honey masks, sulphur maks, lemon juice, salicylic gels, peels, micro, needling, ACV, gentle cleansers, harsh exfoliants - AND FINALLY DANS REGIMEN.
I have been doing Dans (or the alternate version, Cetaphil, Benzac 2.5%, Cetaphil lotion) for almost a week and not seen any improvement.
I currently take Zinc, B Complex, Supergreen supplement, Carla Oats glow, the Pill, and Akamin 50 (minomycin).
I drink so much water, exercise, eat healthy, no dairy, no rubbish food.
I want roaccutaine so badly, but its ages until i can get into a dermatologist.
I just wanted to know, should i stick with dans regimen? Or am i doing long term damage because of the Benzoyl Peroxide?
So over it ...
